Sadly we stand there again, 65 years later to the day, at the frontier of chaos...
Ironically, The USS Arizona's Sister Ship, The USS Pennsylvania survived the infamous attack. Although rarely mentioned in any reference to Pearl Harbor, 24 of her crew were killed, 14 were missing in action, and 38 wounded. She was one of the first to return fire that day at Pearl Harbor and survived to deliver incredible fire power on enemy positions for the next 4 years. Feared by the enemy, and bearing a sister's vengeance, she fired more rounds than any other ship in Naval history.
How proud do you feel now, Pennsylvania?... one of the first States to collapse and cower in this crisis. If fate has any justice, the Navy will change the name of this ship to the USS Santorum.
Have we forgotten?
