Valor in the Pacific

A view of the USS Missouri (foreground) and USS Arizona Memorial (background) in Pearl Harbor, Oahu, HI. These ships are symbolic of America's involvement in the Pacific Theatre of WWII. The Arizona represents the opening shots of the conflict, while the Missouri is where the peace deal was signed by the Allies and Japan. From one of the upper decks, it looks like the Mighty Mo's guns are saluting the fallen sailors who perished aboard the Arizona during the Pearl Harbor attack.
