Gallery: 1914-1916 Description: View from the stern of the Arizona (BB-39) during her commissioning ceremony on 17 October 1916 in New York. "The ceremonies aboard a ship in commission when the ensign is raised and lowered are most impressive. At morning "colors" the band plays the national anthem and the flag is hoisted smartly. All officers face the ensign and salute and the guard of the day and the sentries present arms. At sunset "colors" the ensign is lowered slowly and with dignity as the national anthem is played all officers and enlisted men facing the colors and saluting".
