USS North Carolina
"Moored in quiet dignity and majesty the Battleship No!rth Carolina, across the river from downtown Wilmington, beckons visitors to walk her decks. Envision the daily life and fierce combat her crew faced in the Pacific Theatre during World War II. From all across our Nation they came, young men who had grown up in the crucible of the Great Depression and now determined to serve their Country in its time of need."
Reading THAT makes me grateful we stopped by!
