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.

U S S Oklahoma Memorial Reviews & Ratings
So beautifully moving to attend the ceremony for the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack.
The USS Oklahoma Memorial is at the driveway entrance to the USS Missouri. It honors the 429 sailors who died when the ship capsized. Marble pillars represent the sailors standing at attention on deck. Plan on less than 30 minutes.
Nicely done memorial, steps away from the gate to enter the USS Missouri. Prices for refreshments are a little high at all of the memorials, but this is Hawaii and these are tourist attractions. It is to be expected. I suggest bring cash.
Compared to everything else at Pearl Harbor, this was anti-climatic. Seems like an afterthought.
Located in Pearl Harbour and a very emotional experience and would not have missed this for the world.
