Significance: USS ARIZONA, a steel hulled battleship, was destroyed during the Japanese attach on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Struck by a bomb and possibly torpedoes, this ship was sunk, along with others, at its mooring. ARIZONA received the greatest battle damage and 1,177 crew members were killed and hundred remain entombed in the ship. This attack catapulted the United States into World War II and the ARIZONA remains today a war grave and memorial to those who fought in the war.
