marianne_schwab_la Remembering and honoring our American history is one of the ways to appreciate the price paid for our freedom in this country. The USS Iowa is one of the most historic battleships of World War II and on June 9, 2012, she made her final voyage and I was on so blessed to be on board this historic trip.

The USS Iowa has had a permanent home in San Pedro since that date and has become a very popular tourist attraction on the West Coast where you'll also find the USS Midway aircraft carrier permanently docked in San Diego -- about one hundred miles south of San Pedro. For military history buffs, both of these ships are must see attractions along with the Queen Mary, permanently docked in Long Beach, since it transported thousands of soldiers home to America from Europe after the war. #ussiowa #salute #remembrance #remember #unitedstates #sanpedro #gratitude #memorialday #memorial #military #navy #ussmidway #westcoast #historic #history #battleship #WWII #losangeles #pacific #America #voyage

laurinat123cheese For me, there's nothing more patriotic or commemorative than the sea and some of America's best armed forces. Many of the vets in my family served their time in the open waters. I respect your discipline and courage. #ussiowa #portoflosangeles #memorialday2015 1d
