Submarine Memorial Pearl Harbor

This memorial, also known as the Waterfront Memorial, is located in the museum park of the USS Bowfin. The memorial commemorates the 52 American submarines which sank in the Second World War and the more than 3,500 crew members who were killed. Each stone represents a sunken submarine. Written on it is a brief history of the submarine and the names of the servicemen who fell.
