Elvis Presley performed in front of 4,000 screaming fans at Bloch Arena in Hawaii, on March 25, 1961, at the USS Arizona Memorial benefit concert commemorating the honorable soldiers who sunk with the USS Arizona during the devastating attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. Elvis said the only way he would perform is if every penny of the proceeds went to the memorial as the fundraising had stalled with only half of what was needed. Elvis bought half the special seats for patients of Tripler Hospital in Hawaii, performing 15 songs culminating in a slide across the stage on his knees. Elvis’s concert regenerated public awareness and donations poured in. A little over a year later on May 30, 1962, the memorial was completed. Having served in the U.S. Army, Elvis's passion for aiding the military convinced others to join the cause and in August 1965, when Elvis returned to Hawaii to film Paradise Hawaiian Style he visited the memorial and left a bell shaped wreath made of 1,177 carnations, in honor of the people who lost their lives aboard the Arizona, reading “Gone but not forgotten."
