USS Iowa To Sail On Saturday
The delayed departure of the USS Iowa has been set for Saturday.
This is a moment of history folks, never again will a battleship sail under the Golden Gate Bridge.
The Iowa has been a part of US history, from taking FDR to Yalta all the way to Ronald Reagan and the 100th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty.
The fact that this voyage occurs on both Memorial Day weekend and during the 75th anniversary celebrations for the bridge seems quite fitting.
I would hope that CNN/MSNBC/Fox/etc will be covering the transit, so keep an eye out on the news.
You can also track things at The Pacific Battleship Center.
They also have a Facebook page, just look for Pacific Battleship Center.
