With the 77th anniversary this year of  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 (pictured here in 1916 in New York City- Wikepedia) that lays today in a water grave at Pearl Harbor Hawaii. Those 1,177 Pearl Harbor sailors that perished that day from the USS Arizona are American heroes as well as others lost on other naval vessels. 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 and anchor chains on display. On the simulated brick wall bridge of the USS Arizona, within the outline, is a personal medallion for each of the doomed sailors that gave their lives for our country.

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.

I read today that they had exhumed more of the sailors that had been trapped within the USS Oklahoma and were able to ID them so loved ones can give these brave heroes a final resting place.
