About MATT1c Gregorio Aguon
Shortly before 0800, Japanese aircraft from six fleet carriers struck the Pacific Fleet as it lay in port at Pearl Harbor, and the ensuing two attack waves wrought devastation on the Battle Line and on air and military facilities defending Pearl Harbor.
On board ARIZONA, the ship's air raid alarm went off about 0755 and the ship went to General Quarters soon thereafter. Insofar as it could be determined soon after the attack, the ship sustained eight bomb hits; one hit on the forecastle glancing off the face plate of Turret II, penetrating the deck to explode in the black powder magazine, which in turn set off adjacent smokeless powder magazines.
