The USS Iowa

The ship my dad was on during WW2 has recently been docked near my sisters home in California- near Long Beach. Not much had been interesting to my dad but when he heard about the ship he was really impressed. The family all tried to get down to orange county for a special day on the ship for the veterans. It was to be on July 4. All my sibs, except Krista and I made it down. We had thought there was no way for Dad with his limited mobility to get on the ship but it turned out that he did! He was also interviewed for the news. Mom said she was sure being there brought things back to my Dads mind that were pretty powerful. I was so glad he got to go.
