This geocoin represents a very respectful attempt to remember 1,177 lives lost on the USS Arizona (BB39) on December 7, 1941. Its mission is to journey to and visit Hawaii, be photographed on the Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor, visit the state of Arizona, and then return to the home state of the USS Arizona's proud, battle-worn sister, the USS South Dakota (BB57). May this coin ever serve as a solemn reminder that freedom is never free.
About This Item
Davy Jones's Locker is an idiom for the bottom of the sea: the resting place of drowned sailors. It is used as a euphemism for death at sea (to be sent to Davy Jones's Locker), whereas the name Davy Jones is a nickname for what would be the devil, saint, or god of the seas. The origins of the name are unclear and many theories have been put forth, including incompetent sailors, a pub owner who kidnapped sailors, or that Davy Jones is another name for the devil—as in "Devil Jonah." This nautical superstition was popularized in the 1800s.
