Sacrifice Remembered
Photograph by David Doubilet

Flowers on the waters of Pearl Harbor are cast from the USS Arizona Memorial in remembrance of the 1,177 sailors and marines who died when the battleship was attacked and sunk by Japanese aircraft on December 7, 1941. The memorial, dedicated in 1962 and administered by the National Park Service, straddles the hull of the ship but does not touch it. Yearly 1.5 million visitors—20 percent of them Japanese—pay their respects at the memorial.
