ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the dedication ceremony for the Vice Admiral James B. Stockdale A-4C Skyhawk memorial at Naval Station North Island in August 2008. He urges the concept of the naval ethos and believes that ceremonies are a vital part of it. He explains on the representation of ceremonies in an individual or group, what they value, and what they hold dear, and cites its opportunity to educate that signals a noble link to the past.
