USS Arizona Memorial
Oil droplets bubble to the surface of Pearl Harbor above the USS Arizona, creating a vivid link to the past. On a quiet Sunday morning December 7, 1941 a Japanese surprise air attack left the Pacific Fleet in smoldering heaps of broken, twisted steel. Here, peace was interrupted and paradise lost. In hours, 2,390 futures were stolen, half of these casualties from the battleship Arizona.
You'll notice to the bottom left of the Arizona is moored the USS Missouri. Fitting, as that is where the Japanese signed the unconditional surrender treaty in 1945.
