The flag of the U.S.S. Arizona

This was taken early morning on the U.S.S Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, Honolulu, Hawaii. Every morning the first tour that goes out to the monument watches a ceremony as soldiers lower the flag, fold it, and replace it. It's a very somber experience as we remember those who died at Pearl Harbor.
