13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
American History Intersection

This photo captures a personal treasure presented to me while serving in the United States Navy. I was asked if I would like to have a flag flown over the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor on the 40th anniversary of the attack in my name. I couldn't understand why I was offered this treasure but I said YES! It sits in my home office facing the Wall of America art that I do as a hobby.
