5 historic sites honour the events that occurred during the devastating December 7, 1941 surprise air attack at Pearl Harbour by the Japanese. The attack plunged the United States into World War II, claiming thousands of innocent lives.
The site of the most devastating loss of life , the USS Arizona, was unfortunately closed for structural repairs, but Azmi and I managed to get tickets for the @BattleshipMissouri.
Today the USS Arizona Memorial is a place of somber beauty and quiet reflection. You begin at the Visitor Centre, where you can watch a film about the attack and view plaques honouring lives lost on that fateful day. (The film admission is free, but you do need to reserve a time slot in advance)
