Mary Freiberg and family returned to Hawaii with her uncle's ship flag that flew onboard the USS Rigel, ported in Pearl Harbor December 7th 1941. The flag was strafed by the attacking Japanese aircraft on the fantail of the ship and bears the scars of the attack with two bullet holes. Her uncle Cy was given the flag by an Admiral "Husband" as a gesture of gratitude for what the 18 year old signalman did that day. He and his crewmen took a small skiff from his ship during the attack and pulled burning sailors out of the harbor that were blown off the torpedoed ships tied up aside battleship row, saving numerous lives. Was the flag given to Cy by the Admiral Husband E. Kimmel??? We'll never know but his story and legacy live on in the Home of the Brave Museum!
