USS Missouri (BB 63)

The decommissioned battleship USS Missouri (BB 63) is illuminated by the setting sun during a tribute ceremony for retired Chief Boatswain’s Mate Harold B. Estes. More than 200 guests paid tribute to Estes, who after retiring from the Navy in 1955, has received numerous awards from the Secretary of the Navy for public service and involvement in the Sea Services. Estes is also known for helping to bring the Missouri and USS Bowfin (SS 287) to Pearl Harbor as floating museums. (U.S. Navy photo by Photographer’s Mate 1st Class William R. Goodwin)
