At northwest end of the USS Arizona Memorial interior platform, a wall lists the names of all 1,177 crew who died when the hulking battleship was felled during the infamous Japanese air raid that paralyzed the U.S. Navy base at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. More than 2,400 lives were lost in the attack, which saw the destruction of 188 aircraft, four battleships (plus damage to four more), and several other ships.
