View of hangar deck aboard the USS Oriskany (CVA-34). Sailors place flag-draped coffins on a pallet. A Catholic Chaplain (Fr. Conall Richard Coughlin, who is stationed at Subic Bay) shares duties with the Ship's chaplain (a Lt. Commander) as they officiate during the solemn activity. Sailors secure the coffins and roll the pallet across the deck where they fasten it to a crane. On the pier below, a Marine honor guard salutes with rifles as sailors accompanied by clergymen carry the coffins aboard a waiting C-130 aircraft.
