Model of the USS Arizona -
This model was in the Phoenix, Arizona Veteran’s Parade this year and I ran into the folks at Applebee’s later and spent a few minutes visiting with them. The owner is an old Seabee. He told me some war stories and I told him about our family’s Veterans and I thanked him for his service.
