U S S Oklahoma Memorial - Review
Located on the Ford Island near the Battleship Missouri Memorial, USS Oklahoma Memorial is dedicated to 429 sailors and mariners who were killed during the 1941 Pearl Harbor attack by the Japanese.
The number of brave lives lost on the Oklahoma was second to the USS Arizona and even though the memorial was built 60 years later, the place still remembers the deadly attack like a fresh wound.
The design of the memorial consist of a black granite that represents the hull of the ship while the columns of white rail evoke the Navy tradition of ‘Manning the Rails’- when the crew stands at attention along the rigging of the ship dressed in their white uniforms in order to display respect and honor. Each rail has the name of the soldiers etched on them- keeping the memory of the lost men, alive forever.

My father was stationed in Pearl Harbor during the attack. It was just amazing to see thru my eyes, what he had seen thru his. Then there is history
Awesome national monument. The history of this ship and WWII are brought to life. The guided tour is a must.
Amazing time, spent over half a day there. Be ready for major history lessons.
Humbling experience. Beautiful memorial located on historic Ford Island.
Very simple but very moving monument. Beautiful in it's starkness.
