About this Event

The UP Hawai'i Chapter secured a group reservation to tour the USS Arizona Memorial on Saturday, January 4. You are invited to attend this exclusive opportunity to experience the history of Pearl Harbor with your fellow Pilots.

The 75-minute program for the USS Arizona Memorial begins at the Pearl Harbor Memorial Theater. It includes a brief introduction, a 25-minute documentary film, a Navy-operated shuttle boat ride to the USS Arizona Memorial, and time to experience the memorial itself.

The Battleship USS Arizona was bombed on December 7, 1941, about 15 minutes into the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, killing 1,177 sailors and Marines. Over 900 could not be recovered from the ship and remain onboard. Today, Arizona rests where she fell, submerged in about 40 feet of water just off the coast of Ford Island.

Designed by Honolulu architect Alfred Preis, the memorial was built in 1962 on top of (but not touching) the sunken USS Arizona. The memorial honors the memory of the crew of the USS Arizona, as well as all the other service members and civilians killed in the attack. A total of 2,341 sailors, soldiers, and Marines died as a result of the attack, as well as 49 civilians.
