    Relic from Pearl Harbor Attack Coming to Rhode Island

    A piece of a battleship destroyed during the Pearl Harbor attack of World War II is coming to Rhode Island.

    The Providence Journal reports the World War II Foundation is set to receive salvaged steel from the USS Arizona.

    The battleship sunk during the Japanese attack on a U.S. naval base in Hawaii on Dec. 7, 1941 and is now a national memorial. More than 2,400 servicemen and civilians were killed in the surprise attack that thrust the U.S. into World War II.

    The newspaper reports that the five-by-four-foot piece from the USS Arizona's superstructure will be displayed at the entrance of the foundation's center in Wakefield when it arrives in a few weeks. At least two people from Rhode Island died when the battleship sunk.
