USS Arizona Memorial, Pearl Harbor Honolulu Hawaii

The USS Arizona Memorial located in Pearl Harbor is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Honolulu and the Hawaiian Islands; the memorial has come to commemorate all military personnel killed in the Pearl Harbor attack. Contrary to popular belief, the USS Arizona is no longer in commission. As a special tribute to the ship and her lost crew, the United States flag flies from the flagpole, which is attached to the severed mainmast of the sunken battleship. The USS Arizona Memorial has come to commemorate all military personnel killed in the Pearl Harbor attack.

The USS Arizona is the final resting place for many of the ship's 1,177 crewmen who lost their lives on December 7, 1941. The 184-foot-long Memorial structure spans the mid-portion of the sunken battleship and consists of three main sections: the entry room; the assembly room, a central area designed for ceremonies and general observation; and the shrine room, where the names of those killed on the Arizona are engraved on the marble wall.

Don't miss a chance to visit this inspiring Memorial and honor the dedicated men that sacrificed their lives.
