Often, somewhere I’ve never been before leaves me speechless when I see it for the first time. The USS Arizona Memorial is one of those solemn places that is both beautiful and sad at the same time. On December 7, 1941 at 7:48am, Japan surprise attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor. 353 Imperial Japanese aircraft were sent in two waves. 19 U.S. Navy ships were damaged or sunk. The USS Arizona is the final resting place of 1177 sailors & Marines. In all, 2403 people lost their lives that day.
