The USS Oklahoma Memorial has 429 perfectly aligned white marble standards. Each symbolizes an individual sailor or Marine lost in the 1941 Pearl Harbor attack; in pristine white dress uniform, inspired from the tradition of ‘manning the rail’. In full dress whites the ship’s crew stand at attention along the rails or in the rigging of the ship to display respect and honor as the ship moves in and out of port – a powerful tradition to witness especially at Pearl Harbor. This impression catches the ‘manning the rails‘ white marble standards in reflection on a black granite slab representing the hull the Oklahoma. I connect the rainbow oil swirls in the reflection with black tears of the Arizona.
