Sailors from the U.S. Navy Ceremonial Guard conduct a funeral for U.S. Navy Seaman 1st Class James R. Ward at Arlington National Cemetery, Washington D.C., Dec. 21, 2023. Ward was assigned to the battleship USS Oklahoma, which was moored at Ford Island, Pearl Harbor, when the ship was attacked by Japanese aircraft. The USS Oklahoma sustained multiple torpedo hits, which caused it to quickly capsize. The attack on the ship resulted in the deaths of 429 crewmen. Ward was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously and after being accounted for, was returned to his family for burial with full military honors. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Ashleigh Maxwell)
