No event in United States history has been the subject of more documentaries over the past 75 years than the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

Built over the sunken wreckage of the USS Arizona you’ll find the iconic Arizona Memorial. The Battleship, made famous on that infamous day, is the watery grave of the 1,177 Navy Sailors that were killed on December 7, 1941 when Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Japanese. The sunken battleship was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1989, and is now a must-see destination for anyone taking a trip to Hawaii.
The Wall of Names is one of the more sacred aspects of the visit to the USS Arizona Memorial. Here we are able to honor the fallen soldiers who lost their lives to the perils of war during the attack. A moment of silence is observed in during this time to pay respect for those who gave everything for their freedom.
The USS Arizona was bombed and completely sank during the air strike on Pearl Harbor. Because the ship was in the harbor, it’s reserves were full and the ship sunk will a full reservoir of fuel and oil. The traces of oil that surface daily can be seen best when the Harbor is calm, and is one of the more sobering aspects of the experience.
