#8 with the Wonder Wheel was my favorite in the set. Did you ride that, or the gondolas? White knuckle time on a windy day!!

President Reagan ordered all flags to be flown at half mast May 25th - 28th, in recognition of the addition of another unknown soldier at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington- this one from the Vietnam War.
Incidentally, do I remember correctly hearing that some years later this Vietnam unknown was un-entombed because they had a DNA I.D. on him? And they sealed it up without putting another Vietnam casualty in there, because they say science is now at the point that ALL remains from Vietnam might be identified, so no such thing as an 'unknown' casualty any more.
But in 1984 they thought it proper, and DNA technology wasn't as advanced as it is has become now. So the flags flew at half mast for four days at the end of May. That MIGHT be the occasion of the flags flying at half mast in your photo.
