A visit to the USS Arizona Memorial, a stark white structure over the sunken battleship, is memorable for so many reasons. Over 1,117 marines and sailors names can be read on the wall; noting that this is their final resting place. Since Dec. 7th, 1941, a slow steady stream of oil has leaked from deep inside the ship, which sailors called “Black Tears”.
