My son and I went the USS South Dakota Battleship Memorial earlier today and really enjoyed it. I teach social studies and my late father served in WWII, so that time period is of great interest to me. My son, also an avid historian of WWII at the age of 12, asked to visit this memorial and he was lucky to get his picture taken by two WWII veterans who served on the USS South Dakota.
The museum houses old uniforms from WWI and WWII, letters home, notices to families of the deaths of their loved ones, General MacArthur's dining room chairs from the Philippines, and many more interesting things.
Outside the building is a life size outline of the USS South Dakota with crow's nest, propellor, etc.
This piece of history should receive more attention! It was really interesting!
