USS Missouri arrives in Pearl Harbor

Posted: Updated:
PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii -

There are now two Missouri's at Pearl Harbor.

The Virginia-class fast-attack submarine, USS Missouri, arrived at its new home-port around 4 p.m. Friday.

The crew of 140 sailors and officers rendered honors to the Missouri Battleship Memorial as it passed Ford Island.

The USS Missouri is about 377 ft long a little over a football field in length. By comparison to its big brother - the Mighty Mo is 877 ft long.

This is the fifth Navy ship named in honor of the state of Missouri. 

The legendary battleship is now a memorial, the site where the U.S. accepted Japan's surrender, putting an end to World War II.
