Share

Even today, more than seven decades after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the number of sailors interred in the USS Arizona continues to grow as veterans of the battle have asked in their final wishes to be returned to the ship to spend eternity with their shipmates.

When those requests come in, officials at World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument arrange for a military burial, complete with funeral services aboard the USS Arizona Memorial. The following video details how those services are performed. Check out this story for more on visiting the Memorial.
