Hawaii

Pearl Harbor

Just passing through through Hawaii? If you have at least half a day layover on Oahu, the Arizona Memorial should be on your list of sites to see. The USS Arizona is the final resting place for many of  her 1,177 crewmen.

Inside the memorial is a sobering wall,
listing the names of those entombed.

The Arizona Memorial from the Visitor Center

Before taking the shuttle out to the Arizona, visitors are shown a video on the history of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor 7 December 1941. It is well worth the time.
