The USS Arizona Bell
On December 7th, 1941, the battleship USS Arizona was attacked and sunk at Pearl Harbor. 1,177 Sailors and Marines aboard the ship were killed, few survived. The bell that hung on the foremast of the ship survived the attack, but went missing until years later when UA alum Bill Bowers found it in the Puget Sound Naval Yard ready to melted down. The USS Arizona Bell now hangs in the bell tower at the Student Memorial Center at the University of Arizona.
