Scenes of Hawaii

The USS Oklahoma Memorial on Sand Island

On December 7, 1941, the USS Oklahoma was struck by several torpedoes. It was found to be too severely damaged to be repaired and returned to duty. Of her crew, 429 died, while survivors either climbed across the mooring lines to the USS Maryland or leaped into the harbor, where fuel oil burned.

This lesser-known memorial stands along the street leading to the USS Missouri (BB-63), which today is a museum ship that stands next to the USS Arizona Memorial.
