Day in infamy: Marines salute Arizona's fallen

Veterans, city officials and members of the Phoenix community observe the massive gun barrel of the USS Arizona during the dedication ceremony of a World War II memorial in Phoenix, Dec. 7, 2013. Sergeant Major Jerry Gomes, sergeant major of Marine Corps Recruiting Station Phoenix, participated in the ceremony, placing a wreath at the base of the anchor of the USS Arizona. “It is an honor to be the bearer of a wreath honoring our greatest generation and the many Marines and service members who laid the foundation for this country,” said Gomes. The memorial features the names of the military personnel from Arizona who died during the war displayed on steel plates between massive gun barrels from the USS Arizona and USS Missouri.
