Long Description:
A special monument that shows the main weapon used by the US Submarines in WW II. A weapon that helped bring the war to an end but at a terrible cost.

There are three placques besides the fish, that list some very touching information about what the boats were involved with some 60 years ago.

This memorial is locatied at the Arizona National Cemetary. In addition to this memorial there are more of them behind the wall, and there is also the mast from the USS Arizona, and an eternal flame that shows our respect all the time.
