axis_and_allies45 USS Iowa underway during the Gilbert and Marshall Islands Campaign, early January 1944. USS Indiana can be seen on the background. ••• I also just found out that the Iowa's been in the Port of Los Angeles for a few years now and I think I'll make it a point to go check her out! ---------- 2d

the_2nd_world_war BB-61 U.S.S Iowa, was commissioned into the US Navy on February 22, 1943. She assigned to search for the German Battleship Tirpitz in the Norwegian waters. She then returned and would carry FDR to the important meeting in Tehran between FDR, Churchill, and Stalin. After she was sent to the Pacific were she would be a key role in the success of the in the island campaigns, protecting Allied aircraft carriers and bombarding enemy land installations. She was decommissioned on 24 of March 1949.
*yes I do know the Iowa was in Korea and was upgraded in the 80s but I didn't want to do a huge post that wasn't majorly related to WWII as a whole*

Sorry if I didn't respond to your messages at all but I Will get to them, promise!
Today was a 'disconnected' day where I just enjoyed my time and we went to the USS Iowa in Long beach and had some yummy dinner afterwards. So grateful to be able to take time away and have a break day without having to worry too much
Happy Saturday everyone! What was your favorite thing you did today?
