Arizona will wear special uniforms honoring Pearl Harbor and the U.S.S. Arizona battleship against Hawaii on Sept. 17. The school released a promotional video about the uniforms on Wednesday evening.

The U.S.S. Arizona had a long history before December 7, 1941, but it’s mostly remembered for being one of the battleships sunk during Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, which caused the United States to become actively involved in World War II. It’s believed a bomb detonated in a powder magazine on the ship, causing a large, violent explosion that caused it to sink, killing 1,177 officers and crewmen aboard.

Arizona also released a detailed graphic explaining each part of the unique uniform, which will be tough to top this season both for its sentamentality and unique, specific design.
