    I am pretty sure this is the USS Utah Memorial at Pearl Harbor. When my husband was stationed in Hawaii we lived just across the street from the Utah. Every morning and evening they would recognize colors and would also hold burials at sea there. It was an amazing and humbling place to live, with reminders everywhere of those who sacrificed all they had for our country.

    You are absolutely correct, Mirah, the title of this photo is

    I have so many wonderful photos of the Utah. One morning I went out for my walk and when I came outside they were about to raise the flag and there was a perfect Hawaiian rainbow behind them. I went quickly back inside to grab my camera. It’s one of my favorite photos from Hawaii.
    We were in a row of historic homes across from the Utah and there were palm trees with bullet holes from WWII in the yard. When they would conduct burials at sea I could hear them playing Taps while sitting in my house. It was a very moving experience and I’ll never forget living there.

  4. The process of implementing a social media campaign can be daunting.
    If a person is interested in what they see on your Facebook page, it’s crucial that they have your contact information to learn more.

    But other than those who just want to communicate with friends, old and new, social
    media is also currently being taken advantage by
    business oriented people as a way to reach their target clients and improve their businesses.
