Pearl Harbor Museum & Visitor Center & USS Arizona Memorial
In the early morning hours of December 7, 1941, the Japanese military carried out a surprise military strike at the United States Naval Base of Pearl Harbor. Two waves of over three hundred bombers, fighters and torpedo planes attacked this tropical outpost off the coast of Oahu, Hawaii. Known as either the Attack of Pearl Harbor or the Battle of Pearl Harbor, the Japanese assault signaled the beginning of the United States’ direct military involvement in World War II. Over 2,400 Americans lost their lives and the U.S. Navy lost 188 aircraft, including the USS Arizona.
Today, the Pearl Harbor Hawaii memorial in Oahu stands as a testament to that fateful day in December over seven decades ago that then President Franklin D. Roosevelt described as a “Date that will live in infamy.” Worldstar takes you to the solemn grounds of this monumental Pearl Harbor and USS Arizona memorial site to get a first-hand experience of this infamous battle.
You’ll start off with a viewing of a short film about the Battle of Pearl Harbor before getting on board a U.S. Navy launch that will take you to the Pearl Harbor Memorial and Visitor Center. Make sure to keep your Pearl Harbor tickets as a souvenir!
Punchbowl Memorial Cemetery
Following a moving visit to the Arizona Memorial and a guided tour through the visitor center, you’ll continue your journey on to Punchbowl Cemetery, The National Cemetery of the Pacific. Please be aware that you will only drive through these hallowed grounds, home to the final resting places of great heroes such as Ernie Pyle (WWII legendary correspondent) and Ellison Onizuka (space shuttle Challenger).
Located just 15 minutes from the Waikiki resorts in Honolulu, Punchbowl—the National Cemetery of the Pacific—is located in the Koolau Mountain Range of Oahu. Actually, part of the interesting facts about Oahu is that Punchbowl is set inside of an ancient crater. In Hawaiian, however, these sacred burial grounds are known as Puowaina, meaning “Hill of Sacrifice.”
