My grandfather, Howard W. West, serviced on the USS Arizona in the 1920s. Going through his photograph album from that time period, as well as his USS Arizona Log Book (1924-1925), I still found I have so little information to connect the photographs to his life. Then I found the official USS Arizona History site, stuffed with massive information, photographs, and history about the USS Arizona by Bud Nease, USNR, Retired.
Here are some highlights worth exploring if you are interested in the USS Arizona or had a relative serving on her:
