Funding Needs

Pacific Historic Parks is working to restore the deteriorating USS Arizona Memorial to ensure continued access is available for current and future visitors. There are few events that serve as a defining moment in the history of a nation and the lives of an entire generation.  The 1941 Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor was a pivotal moment - for the United States and for the WWII generation of Americans.  70 years later, the world continues to Remember, Honor & Understand Pearl Harbor.  As the generations of today grow further from our "Greatest Generation", PHP hopes to be the bridge between this generational gap.
