here is a sunken U.S. Navy
Harbor Hawaii.
ship in Pearl Harbor,

O’AHU

The USS Arizona battleship was
sunk when Japan attacked
Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7,
1941. The attack caused
Honolulu
the U.S. to join the
fighting in World War II.

Pearl Harbor

More than 1,000 sailors and
marines died that day. Many of
them remain with their ship under
the harbor. And many Pearl
Harbor survivors choose to be
placed with their fellow crew
members when they die.

Do the math to discover which
emblem represents each branch
of the United States military.

From a building constructed
above the water, visitors can see
the USS Arizona under the
harbor’s clear ocean waters. This
is the USS Arizona Memorial,
which opened in 1962.

In the tropical waters of Hawaii, a huge variety of colorful
fish live among the coral reefs. The reef triggerfish isn’t
very big, but it has a name in Hawaiian that’s VERY long:
humuhumunukunukuapua’a! You pronounce it:
who-moo-who-moo-noo-koo-noo-koo-ah-pooah-ah.

Congress declared Memorial Day a national holiday to remember
the people who died in American wars. It is observed on the last
Monday in May. What year did Memorial Day officially begin?

I

n 1958, President Dwight Eisenhower signed a
law that started fundraising for the USS Arizona
Memorial. Their goal was to raise $500,000, but
only $155,000 had been raised by 1960.
A rock and roll legend solved the problem.
He held a concert in Hawaii that raised over
$60,000. But the concert raised more than
money – it made people across the
country aware of the USS Arizona and
the drive to build a memorial. Donations
started coming in and the full $500,000
was raised by September, 1961.
