New Video Commemorates USS Arizona And Those Who Died At Pearl Harbor



It's been nearly 67 years since the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, yet it still is sharp in many Americans' minds. Spanning nearly all of the Pacific Ocean, World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument preserves and interprets the stories and key events in the Pacific Theater during World War II. A new video sheds some light on the history of those who went down with the USS Arizona.

The minute-long video was made by Jeff DePonte to air on Hawaii PBS stations in conjunction with the Ken Burns documentary, The National Parks: America's Best Idea. The video features Pearl Harbor survivor Al Rodrigues, park ranger Daniel Warner, and a visit to the USS Arizona Memorial.
