USS Arizona was a Pennsylvania-class battleship built for and by the United States Navy in the mid-1910s. Named in honor of the 48th state's recent admission into the union, the ship was the second and last of the Pennsylvania class of "super-dreadnought" battleships. Although commissioned in 1916, the ship remained stateside during World War I. Shortly after the end of the war, Arizona was one of a number of American ships that briefly escorted President Woodrow Wilson to the Paris Peace Conference. The ship was sent to Turkey in 1919 at the beginning of the Greco-Turkish War to represent American interests for several months. Several years later, she was transferred to the Pacific Fleet and remained there for the rest of her career.

The time was December 7, 1941. The wife and young son of the U.S.S. Arizona's chaplain, Captain Thomas L. Kirkpatrick, were listening to the radio that Sunday afternoon, when suddenly they heard: We interrupt this program to bring you a special news bulletin. The Japanese have attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii by air, President Roosevelt has just announced. The attack also was made on all Naval and Military activities on the principal island, Oahu. The following day, the President made his historic speech to Congress, using language that would galvanize a shocked nation and propel America into war. The same day, the telegram arrived that ended a two-decade-long story about a love that endured numerous lengthy separations while the chaplain was deployed either at sea or at a remote duty station. How this military couple endured these stresses yet kept their marriage alive and vibrant, forms the core of this heartwarming and inspiring story, embedded in the sweep of world-changing historical events.

The USS Arizona Memorial was dedicated in the warm sunshine of Memorial Day 1962. As the waters of Pearl Harbor lapped gently against the rusted hulk of the sunken battleship, reflected sunlight played over the freshly painted, white surfaces of the recently constructed Memorial. White Navy uniforms dominated the dress of the 200 guests invited to the Memorial & those on nearby Ford Island. A public address system carried the speeches of Naval officials & other dignitaries as they recalled the attack on Pearl Harbor, the men who lost their lives there, & expressed their hopes for future peace. A prayer form the chaplain & a band rendition of the Navy Hymn was followed by the haunting notes taps. A volley of rifle fire by the Marine honor guard provided the final punctuation.
