 I heard a comment by a talking head regarding the new Pearl Harbor movie and I was wondering if anyone knew the truth.
 They said that men banging on the hull of the Arizona could be heard for a month after the attack. Is this true? what is the story behind this?
 Thanks for any and all replies.

First, their air wouldn't have lasted for "a month".    Second, there's no way the folks at Pearl would have ignored that banging.

Aloha All,
The men found on USS West Virginia left a "diary" that says they lasted for almost two weeks.

As to "banging", those heard were cared for.
HTH,
