Last weekend I went with my son's Boy Scout troop on a campout on the Iowa class battleship New Jersey.
It was a great experience with a lot learned.
The New Jersey is the most decorated battleship in US Navy history.
Battle service in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Lebanon, and the Gulf.
The machine shop and electric motor rebuild shop were awesome as well as being in the 16" gun turrets.
There were welders everywhere. Mostly old Millers.
Sleeping quarters were tight to say the least!
