"I spent one year to about the day on board the Arizona. The ship was a great loss to the Navy in both manpower and the vessels. We can only wonder what part she would have played in the war. The USS Arizona Memorial will always be a reminder to all of us of the sacrifices that were made on December 7, 1941. May we remember the price that was paid for Peace." Herbert Buehl
