Day in infamy: Marines salute Arizona's fallen

Sergeant Major Jerry Gomes, sergeant major of Marine Corps Recruiting Station Phoenix, renders a salute after placing a wreath at the base of the anchor of U.S. Battleship USS Arizona during the dedication ceremony of a World War II memorial in Phoenix, Dec. 7, 2013. “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.
