But let us get back to the USS Arizona memorial. After the Pearl Harbor, Hawaii attack on December 7, 1941, as Franklin Delanor Roosevelt (FDR) said, "A Day that will live in infamy" marking the Empire of Japan's sudden and deliberate attack of the United States causing our country's entrance into World War II, we remember the USS Arizona that lays in a water grave at Pearl Harbor today. Those 1,177 Pearl Harbor sailors that perished that day from the USS Arizona are American heroes. It should be noted that a permanent outline with a red brick border of the actual dimensions of the USS Arizona was installed on the University of Arizona, Tucson campus on the grass mall in front of the Student Union and the bell tower for the USS Arizona bell.

There is also a replica of the ship and a history museum in a study hall at the Studen Union and the anchor and chains are also on display at the Student Union. A worthwhile visit.  To see images of the USS Arizona memorial at the University of Arizona, Tucson in an excellent article and video by CBS News when the memorial outline was completed which added to the existing memorial at the University of Arizona.
