USS Ralph TalbotIn honor of the D-Day anniversary, the 48-star U.S. flag from the USS Ralph Talbot, a destroyer, will be on display through the end of day on December 7, 2018. The Talbot was anchored at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, when the Japanese attacked but made it out of the area with no damage or casualties. Sharitt Baker of Topeka acquired the flag while serving on the Talbot during the war and later donated it to the Kansas Museum of History.
