On Dec. 7, 1941, “america of America was abruptly and intentionally attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.”
1,177 members of the crew of the USS Arizona have been killed because the
battleship exploded and sank when struck by a bomb through the Japanese
assault on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The our bodies of greater than 900 stay
entombed within the vessel, which serves as a memorial for all who died
through the assault.
The assault killed 2,340 U.S. service members and 48 civilians, noticed 12 American ships sunk or beached and destroyed 164 plane.
The oil that also leaks from the wreckage and rises to the water’s floor is called “the tears of the Arizona” or “black tears.”
