Go to Pearl Habour and take a tour out to the USS Arizona memorial. We where here during Memorial day, so it was kind of crowded.
USS Arizona sunk December 7 1941 and is now the final resting place for 1.177 crewmen.
Pearl Harbour- U.S.S Missouri
This great battleship has become a museum. Plan on spending several hours exploring this incredible battleship.
Exploring this battleship was one of our highlights of our trip to Honolulu. This is not to be missed. As the Arizona Memorial is a symbol as our entrance to World War II, the U.S.S. Missouri is the Symbol to the end of the war,
as the treaty ending the war was signed on this decks while in Tokyo Bay.
Pearl Harbor- U.S.S. Arizona Memorial
The U.S.S Arizona is a symbol of our entrance into World War II. The U.S.S. Arizona was attached when the Japanese attached Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. On that day 1,102 men aboard the U.S.S. Arizona lost there lives. It is a great tour that includes a 20 minutes documentary and a shuttle boat ride out to the Arizona Memorial. It is a truely humbling experience.
You must see The Pearl Harbor Memorial for the S.S.Arizona. I had gone to Oahu twice before I decided to visit the memorial and wish I had seen it sooner. It really is breath taking in a historical way and a wonderful tribute. See my Pearl City page for more pictures.
The USS Arizona Memorial as a national shrine symbolizes American sacrifice and resolve. Through national tragedy, a “sleeping giant awoke”
Harbor with the Arizona Memorial. It is a monument built to
commemorate all the seamen dead during the bombing on December 7 1941.
There's also a musuem and a documentary to watch.
Standing looking at
the Arizona Memorial
you would never
know the nightmare
that happened there.
We can only hope
the World makes
USS Arizona and USS Missouri memorials
Can't visit Oahu without seeing the 'bookmarks' of America's WWII involvement.
You must visit the Arizona Memorial and appreciate the bravery of those young men.
It was extremely sad to realize that their bodies are still down there.
