    Memorial Day special: BB61's story (professional production)

    Iowa Begins Her Transformation - YouTube

    Stumbled across this a few minutes ago. Maybe a couple persons here will find this a touching Memorial Day feature.

    (This video was done prior to the last six months of rehab and repair work.)

    Very nice, as an x-Navy man I appreciate the video. I was able to visit the New Jersey in 1985~ while it was at Long Beach Naval Station, (along with the Missouri). Very impressive sight seeing those two docked across from each other.

    I heard the Missouri has been making overtures to possibly join other navies, thinks it's better for it's long term interests.

    I predict that it will pass a love note to Canada's Navy, but ultimately end up joining China's navy as a target ship in a couple of years.


    Sorry, enough derailment...thanks for the link, glad to see the Iowa get some recognition.

    I'll have to pass this along to my dad, though he was on a tin can.
