"The Ship's Bell"
This is the ship's bell from the USS Bennington, CV-20. It was an aircraft carrier during WWII, Korea & Vietnam. My father-in-law, George Chouinard, was a marine stationed on the carrier during WWII. This is the wreath from the ceremony held on August 17, 2013 in Bennington, VT to commemorate crew members that passed away in the previous year. George passed away April 22, 2013.
