A flag from history
On May 21, 1944, Navy Landing Ship Tanks (LST) 779 was launched by Dravo shipbuilders into the Ohio River at Pittsburgh. The ship came down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers to New Orleans, where she was commissioned, and went through the Panama Canal and sailed to Pearl Harbor, where on Dec. 7, 1941, the Japanese had bombed the ships in the harbor and damaged and sunk several of them. Many U.S. sailors had given their lives.
