USS IOWA ....SCRAPPED??


---------------------------------------------------------
WITH A WRETCHED ECONOMY SCARING AWAY POSSIBLE FINANCIERS TO KEEP THE WORLD'S LAST UNCOMMITTED BATTLESHIP AFLOAT, THE FUTURE OF THE ONCE-PROUD USS IOWA APPEARS MORE BLEAK EVERY DAY.

These "Battlewagons" as they were referred to has always been true to a sailors heart....just looking at them...you see "a mass of power."  Something that has served us all so well one would think there has to be a way to somehow....some way to keep these massive battleships that helped preserve our freedom....a place for all to see and marvel at...like being a museum ship of some sort.

Well that is all nicely said...but it cost huge sums of money in doing so....and we've done a fair job at preserving many ships....the Missouri...New Jersey...and many more...actually the U.S. has become known for preserving the third-largest fleet in the world.

So... this article goes over the problems and some history of the USS Iowa (BB-61)....what do we do with her????
