Peer Into a Fallen Battleship at Pearl Harbor

Dec. 7, 2016 - See the U.S.S. Arizona 75 years later. In 1941, the battleship was destroyed when Japanese planes mounted a surprise attack on the American naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The ship's remains have become a memorial, holding artifacts of everyday life such as shoes, soda bottles, and cooking pots belonging to the servicemen aboard on that fateful day. It is now the responsibility of the National Park Service's Submerged Resource Center, a team of archaeologists and photographers, to survey and document the remnants of the Arizona to preserve the memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in World War II. In this video, the center's deputy chief, Brett Seymour, describes the scene while diving and photographing the ship's wreckage, which still holds the remains of nearly a thousand victims who went down with the ship.
