USS Oklahoma Anchor

To pay our repsects to those who died at Pearl Harbor, yesterday Elijah and I went to the small memorial in OKC.  It is one of the three anchors that was on the USS Oklahoma.  There is a small historic marker that tells about the battleship and her eventual fate.  She did not stay resting in Pearl Harbor, but was sold for scrap in 1943, minus her anchors and guns.  The marker tells the whole story, but she now rests on the ocean floor between Hawaii and California.
