USS Arizona – Memorial and Tombstone

The USS Arizona (BB-39) was launched on 19 Jun 1915, the last of the Pennsylvania-class battleships.

She served the Navy well until she was sunk at Pearl Harbor on 7 Dec 1941 in a surprise Japanese attack which took the life of 1177 her sailors.

They died in the fire, explosions and water of that attack.

The Arizona became their tomb.

It is marked with a large memorial structure – tombstone if you will – for the generations who have since enjoyed freedom - to visit and honor these fallen hero’s.

Tombstone Photos in the Fall

Living in a mountain climate limits the season available to take tombstone photos.  There is something special about walking through the fall leaves, smelling their smells, enjoying the last warmth of the sun amid the quiet of the tombstones.

The memories made are unique: the angle of the sun, shortness of the day, scents, the solitude of created by the rapid approach of winter snow.
