USS Arizona Memorial Site Gets Name Change


From the March 913, 2019, Honolulu (Hawaii) Star-Advertiser by William Cole.

It was part of the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument named in 2008 by President George W. Bush.  It is now the Pearl Harbor National Memorial.

It also includes the Arizona Memorial Center, USS Utah and USS Oklahoma Memorials, six chief petty officer bungalows on Ford Island and three pairs of mooring groups along Battleship Row.  With the exception of the Memorial Center, all of these sites were there when Pearl Harbor was attacked December 7, 1941.
