Pearl Harbour, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii

Today, the USS Arizona Memorial on the island of Oahu honours the dead. Visitors to the memorial reach it via boats from the naval base at Pearl Harbour. The memorial was designed by Alfred Preis, and has a sagging centre but strong and vigorous ends, expressing "initial defeat and ultimate victory". It commemorates all lives lost on December 7, 1941. Although December 7 is known as Pearl Harbour Day, it is not a federal holiday in the United States. The nation does however pay.
