Exclamation Arizona dedicates WWII memorial on Pearl Harbor day

The gun barrel on the left is from the USS Arizona. The one on the right is from the USS Missouri. Standing in between on the blue posts are the names of those who paid the supreme sacrifice during the war who were from Arizona. Picture taken from the base of the anchor from the USS Arizona. The younger generation needs to see this & appreciate the significance. The Arizona sinking thrust U.S. into WWII & it all came to a close aboard the Missouri when the Japs surrendered to the last American general with testicles, Douglas MacArthur. Visit the photography thread for more pic's & information.

Would you believe close to 2,000 bikes in 34 degree temps?
