Pearl Harbor Memorial Band

The USS Arizona Band is the only US Navy band which was formed together, trained together, transferred together, reported aboard a ship together, fought together, and died together.

The Band Story

I find this story amazing. I also can not believe I had never heard this story before. As a musician and father of 4 musicians, I was taken back when I read it.
My thanks to Air Force Veteran Steve Shockley for bringing this to my mind.
