Hosted by Navy Region Hawaii in coordination with the National Park Service, the theme for the ceremony was the 70th anniversary of the end of the war in the Pacific, in honor of those who have served and are currently serving the nation. The event also recognized approximately 40 Navy chief petty officer selects in attendance. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Johans Chavarro/Released)
