Let us take a moment to reflect on the events of 66 years ago, and those who fell in the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. Especially those lost aboard the Battleship U.S.S. ARIZONA.

Why particularly this ship? Where there any relatives on board?

None that I am aware of. However, the bulk of the casualties occured aboard this vessel. Today, a memorial stand anchored over the site, and is visited my countless tourists every year.

Somewhat connected...the memorial was in part paid for by Elvis Presley. A minor historical note.

MAD, to clarify, the Arizona is where the bulk of the casualties at Pearl Harbor took place with 1500 that are still entombed inside the sunken hull, which has been left at its original berth. It took a direct hit that left most of those men trapped inside.

Yeah, I know my history, but I just wondered if there was any reason for Senmut to specifically mention the Arizona, since many people lost their lives that day, also on other ships and the airport.

No personal reason, MAD. The Arizona just tends to resonate with us, is all. Unlike the other Battlewagons thtere that day, the California, or the Nevada for example, she was never raised or repaired.
How's architecture?
