Fave Foto Friday (a day which shall live in infamy edition)

This is the "Whaleboat Team" of the USS Arizona. Photo was taken about six months before the attack on Pearl Harbor. The team was part of a group of United States Marines who were assigned to the Arizona, which was of course, sunk during the attack on December 7th 1941. Of the 88 Marines assigned to the battleship, only 15 survived the attack.
