Feel the reverence given to those fallen sailors at the USS Arizona Memorial, USS Oklahoma Memorial and in the Punchbowl National Cemetery.
After a short video, ride out to USS Arizona Memorial to view the sunken battleship and pay respects to the sailors still interred there. Take a short walk around the visitor center to the USS Bowfin, a submarine with its example sub-launched ballistic missiles. Afterwards, board a real-life battleship, the USS Missouri to understand more about life on the seas.
