Shrine Room of USS Arizona Memorial built 1962. WW II Valor in Pacific NM, Pearl Harbor, Oahu, Hawaii, USA.
Shrine Room of the USS Arizona Memorial, built in 1962 at Pearl Harbor, Oahu, Hawaii, USA. The USS Arizona Memorial marks the watery grave of 1102 sailors and Marines killed onboard that battleship during the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, 7 December 1941. The attack united a divided America to join World War II. More than two million people per year visit the USS Arizona Memorial, which is part of the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument, run by the National Park Service. Reached only via boat, the memorial straddles but doesn't touch the sunken hull. USS Arizona (BB-39) was a Pennsylvania-class battleship launched by the United States Navy in 1916. A Japanese bomb violently exploded a powder magazine and sank the ship, killing 1177 officers and crewmen. This shipwreck shrine is a National Historic Landmark.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
