USS Arizona Anchor and Mast

Two new wonderful additions to the display, added December 7, 2013, are a salvaged 14" gun barrel from the USS Arizona and a 16" gun barrel from the USS Missouri. The Arizona symbolizes the start of the war, the Missouri the end, for it was on her deck, under the guns, that the Japanese surrendered. Beautifully displayed, with the names of Arizonans that died in World War II.

USS Arizona Anchor and Mast

A M A Z I N G! Being a U S Navy sailor, this is a must see for all active duty and veterans! We were pleasantly surprised that this memorial is apart of a huge memorial park for all US conflicts and wars. Also included are civil service, who have given their lives for our country. What we thought was going to be a 20 minute stop ended up being an hour and 1/2, so give yourself some extra time to see everything!

Free parking, no bathrooms and some homeless people hanging around, but they did not bother anyone.

This is a wonderful tribute to the men who gave their lives in the attack at Pearl Harbor. There are many other memorials in the area as well. A must see!

Battleship USS Arizona Anchor.

USS Arizona Anchor and Mast

In Wesley Bolin Plaza in downtown Phoenix, you can view one of the anchors of the USS Arizona and one of her two masts. The mast and 16,000 pound anchor were salvaged from the Arizona after she was sunk by the Japanese in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on Dec. 7, 1941. The Arizona's other anchor is currently displayed at the Pearl Harbor museum in Hawaii.
