USS Arizona Battleship
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii

USS Arizona battleship was sunk in Pearl Harbor by the Japanese on December 7, 1941. The ship was damaged beyond repair, and therefore was not raised and put back into service as were many of the other ships damaged and sunk that day. Instead, it was left underwater, along with the remains of many of its crew members who died that day, as a tribute to them and a memorial commemorating the attack on the USS Arizona and Pearl Harbor. Today the deck of the ship is six feet underwater and a beautiful white memorial has been built above it, allowing visitors to view the sunken ship from above and even see oil oozing up out of the water.

About the USS Arizona Memorial
The Arizona Memorial commemorates the site where World War II began for the United States when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. The memorial is also tribute to the more then 1000 USS Arizona crew members who lost their lives that day.
