    Does anyone know if there are any Arizona survivors left? I had an uncle killed on the ship. My dad was an officer w/ the Marines and, on leave in Hawaii, drop by to see him. He was inthe process of changing out the brass bells and gave one of the older ones to my dad. This was on Dec. 5th. my dad left Sat. and hell hit Sunday. I have the bell and it is rather nice. In fact, I was named after my uncle. Just curious. Thanx

    Do you have any pics of your father and the bell you could post?

    How about names for your uncle and father? They would also be a boon. I agree with Jeff. Pics would be appreciated.
