The battleships moored along "Battleship Row" are the primary target of the attack's first wave.Ten minutes after the beginning of the attack, a bomb crashes through the Arizona's two armored decks igniting its magazine. The explosion rips the ship's sides open like a tin can starting a fire that engulfs the entire ship. Within minutes she sinks to the bottom taking 1,300 lives with her. The sunken ship remains as a memorial to those who sacrificed their lives during the attack.
Good morning, afternoon or evening to all our service men and women past and present, and to our allies. Thank You! for serving this wonderful country we call Home. I appreciate your efforts and sacrifices more than I can express.
For those who made the ultimate sacrifice December 7th, 1941.
