one more for remembrance

For those who were curious about the inside of that striking shape of the building I posted the other day, here is a photo taken of the interior last night. There was a dinner there for all the volunteer docents and as we were sitting at the table, I looked up and said "wish there was a way to show those who wondered what the inside was like..." Hubby looked at me like I was stupid and said, "Take out your phone." Duh. So, behind the cut is a pic of the inside which, it turns out, is the ceiling of the main area and is all glass panes with a large steel column running up the middle and with models (life-size) of various aircraft hanging from the lighted area. As I suspected, the shape (from the outside) is meant to evoke the flag raising on Iwo Jima. The steel thing (inside) going up to the outside spire is meant to represent the prow of a ship.
