“Yesterday, December 7th, 1941, a date which will live in infamy ” Franklin Roosevelt said when speaking about the famous date in which Japanese attack America's naval forces stationed at Pearl Harbor. The USS Arizona, a Super-Dreadnought Battleship one of the most powerful ship in the war sank. Even though it may have sank prematurely, it still served her life for our freedom. It sank during the attack, and unable to be raised for salvage it is now resting in the memorial, slowly leaking oil. Survivors of the USS Arizona can dive down by it, letting past crew members join their comrades for one last voyage.
