We went to Hawaii in 2015. It was a incredible and wonderful trip. The USS Arizona Memorial, located within Pearl Harbor, is a must-see and emotional place to visit in Hawaii. The tour include a movie about the Pearl Harbor attack, a museum and a boat ride to the Arizona Memorial. On December 7, 1941, battleship USS Arizona was bombed by Japanese Naval Forces, which lead US into the World War II. The USS Arizona Memorial is built over the remains of the sunken, the final resting place for over 900 of the 1,177 crewmen killed on December 7, 1941.
The documental movie and museum are educational, heart wrenching and truly help us to understand the one of most pivotal moments in US history.
The boat ride on USS Arizona is deeply emotional. The memorial honors the fallen Arizona crewmen in the attack, and survivors who have reunited with their fallen shipmates in the water. Their names are displayed in the shrine room. It makes us to think about how people have sacrificed for our country.
