70th Anniversary of the Attack on Pearl Harbor

gallery-01In 2007, members of the American Legion Post 114 Bushmasters traveled to Hawaii to receive the U.S. flag that flew over the USS Arizona Memorial from June 4 to July 4, 2007. The flag was folded by sailors from the U.S. Navy on July 4 and presented to the post by survivors of the USS Arizona and Pearl Harbor in October 2007. There was a request by the servitors to open the flag in December 2007 and remember all who have given their lives in service to our country. In honor of that request, the Bushmasters Post 114 has developed a “breathing” of the flag that in our culture pays respect to the four directions.
