Remembering 'Remember Pearl Harbor'

Remembering 'Remember Pearl Harbor' | pearl, remember, remembering - The Orange County Register

Remembering Pearl Harbor. Interesting historical footnote: the USS Phoenix (CL-46) was at Pearl that day and escaped the attack unscathed. She was eventually sold to Argentina and renamed the ARA General Belgrano. After almost 3 decades of service with Argentina, she was sunk on 2 May 1982 by the British submarine HMS Conqueror during the Falklands War. Conqueror is the only nuclear-powered submarine to ever engage an enemy vessel in actual combat.
