U.S. President Barack Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe presented wreaths at the USS Arizona Memorial to honor the service members killed during the Dec. 7, 1941 attacks on Pearl Harbor. They later spoke at Kilo Pier on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. Abe is the first Japanese prime minister to visit the USS Arizona Memorial.
A new USS Arizona Memorial dock was installed in June 2016, replacing the previous one built in 1990. Before opening, the new dock was blessed by Loko’olu Quintero and Kiliona Palauni of the Hawaiian Church of Hawaii Nei.
