This is the USS Alabama. She is quite the sight!
This is really scary.....Billy at the wheel of the submarine!! LOL!!

Yesterday we toured the USS Alabama. It was stunning. I was absolutely awestruck at the size of the ship and it's history. My Dad was in the Navy and I really don't know much about that.....I was so very young at the time. Seeing this ship makes me want to know more about my Dad's time in the Navy. So, time we are together....I want to hear all about your Navy Days. We were also able to tour a submarine and many planes were on display as well. I was amazed that we were allowed to go through both the ship and the sub on our own. There are very few areas that you are not allowed to wonder through.....It really gives you a sense of what it must have been like living on the sea. If you are in the area, I highly recommend taking the tour. It is a powerful moment in life. I could almost hear the crew as we went through the ship. I felt a great sense of pride for our country and it's people! We watched a short film while on board and one of the crewman made a statement, "They said we were the luckiest ship on the seas.....It wasn't luck, WE WERE GOOD!"
