U S S Utah - Review
Built in the early 20th century, the USS Utah was a dreadnaught battleship that sank on its side when the Japanese attacked Peak Harbor in 1941. Two torpedoes hit the ship and ended its service.
Even though many survived the attack, about 64 men lost their lives on the ship.
The memorial that consists of the same ship that sank in 1941 and is kept in its sinking state, pays tribute to the valor and service of these 64 men.

U S S Utah, Honolulu Reviews
Very difficult to get to without a military ID, but well worth the trip if you can get there. The "other side" of Pearl Harbor and in a way more impactful for me than some of the other sites. There is much more of the ship showing above the water than at the Arizona. The place has a very peaceful, almost forgotten feel to it. It's an important part of the Pearl Harbor story and should be made more easy to visit by people who can make the trip to Ford Island.
The USS Utah Memorial is located on Ford Island. We are fortunate to have a retired military member of the family based on Oahu. Unfortunately, those without military credentials and their guest cannot reach this Memorial. Although smaller then the Arizona Memorial it is no less dramatic. The hull of the ship can still be seen rusting above the waterline. It is another somber reminder of what happened on December 7th 1941.
This is a quiet and serene area. The memorial itself is small but when you get to it you can definitely get a sense of the emotions surrounding the USS Utah. History happened at this spot. Went on a walk early in the morning with my pup and we decided to check it out. Definitely a spot to appreciate and learn.
A solemn memorial to the crew of the USS Utah, a must see if you have the credentials to get on Ford island. Not as spectacular as the Arizona memorial but just as awe inspiring and historically relevant. Would recommend for those looking for a less travelled historical site.
USS Utah is not very well sign posted but it is indeed open and available to the public. Nice memorial bridge going out to the sunken ship, very quiet and peaceful area as well.
