A DAY THAT WILL LIVE IN INFAMY - On the morning of December 7, 1941, the Japanese launched a surprise air attack on the U.S. Naval Base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. After just two hours of bombing, more than 2,400 Americans were dead, 21 ships had been sunk or damaged, and more than 188 U.S. aircraft destroyed.
Your tour begins with a pick up at your hotel.
Your highway journey first passes the Historic Punchbowl Crater, home to The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, the final resting place of 13,000 soldiers and sailors who were killed in WWII.
Your destination will be the historic location of the surprise Japanese attack on the United States, the newly refurbished and renamed World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument.
The program is approximately 75 minutes including a 25-minute documentary movie and a U.S.N. boat shuttle to the sunken, U.S.S. Arizona, the final resting place of 1177 Sailors and Marines killed on that day.
Other Exhibits include the Battleship USS Missouri* and the World War II submarine USS Bowfin* and the Pacific Aviation Museum*.
Upon the conclusion of the program, your smiling driver will lighten the mood by whisking you to a scenic mountaintop lookout that reveals the sprawling urban mass of Waikiki and beyond.
The guns from Turret II were salvaged and later installed on the battleship U.S.S. Nevada in the fall of 1944 after having been straightened and relined. Nevada later fired these same guns against the Japanese islands of Okinawa and Iwo Jima.
The Arizona retains the right, in perpetuity, to fly the U.S. flag as if she were an active, commissioned naval vessel.
Survivors of the attack may have their ashes placed within the ship, among their fallen comrades. Veterans who served aboard the ship at other times may have their ashes scattered in the water above the ship.
* Once at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, the National Park Service provides all on-site Tours and narration. Admission fees are not included to the Battleship USS Missouri, the World War II submarine USS Bowfin and the Pacific Aviation Museum. Advance ticket reservations may be required during peak periods.
