The USS Arizona Memorial is built over the remains of the sunken battleship USS Arizona, the final resting place for many of the 1, 177 crewmen killed on December 7, 1941 when their ship was bombed by the Japanese Naval Forces. This loss of life represents over half of the Americans killed during the worst naval disaster in American History.
