USS Pennsylvania. Fixed it. When back to fight in the war.
So were those two destroyers in the foreground of that pic. The only ships that weren't repaired to fight another day were Arizona and Oklahoma. Well, Utah too, but that was a target ship at the time.
Actually Cassin and Downes were stripped, refloated, and eventually scrapped at Pearl.
Cassin was recommissioned in February of '44 and served til the end of the war. She was scrapped in '47. Downes was rebuilt and recommissioned in November of '43. She was also scrapped in '47.
