Battleship Honored on Pearl Harbor Anniversary


HONOLULU (AP) - 63 years later, hundreds of men who died at Pearl Harbor aboard the battleship USS Oklahoma are getting their own special tribute.

429 died aboard the Oklahoma. The crew is being featured in a new exhibit of photos, artifacts and oral histories in Honolulu.

The attack left another 1,177 dead aboard the USS Arizona. Most of those victims remain entombed after the ship sank in the Japanese attack.

The anniversary of the attack was marked Tuesday with simultaneous ceremonies aboard the Arizona Memorial above that sunken battleship, and on shore at the National Park Service's visitors center. Each ceremony featured a silent pause at 7:55am, the minute the attack started.
