What do WW1 and WW2 have in common?

This ship. Commisioned 10/17/1916.. this ship cruised the Atlantic as the flagship, and then the Pacific as part of several battleship divisions..

Then she met 1,700+ lbs. of Japanese steel.. a bomb tore through one of her ammunition magazines, and destroyed the ship.

The USS Arizona sits in 40 feet of water, and holds the graves of 1,177 crew members...

A rallying cry at the time, a reminder now.

Dignity, and most of all.. something that we seem to have very little of these days... Honor.
