Sad to say the least….

The USS Arizona is one of the nation’s most hallowed sites, an underwater grave for more than 900 sailors and Marines killed when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor and sank their ship in 1941.
Now, it’s the scene of alleged rampant mismanagement.
An internal report from the National Park Service, which operates a visitors’ center for a memorial at the battleship, said tour companies sold tickets with the knowledge of park officials even though tickets are supposed to be free.
Another pointed to substandard maintenance, including scuffed museum walls that languished unrepaired and bird feces that wasn’t cleaned.
