“Tour the last remaining LST warship”

What is an LST?  LST stands for Landing Ship, Tank.  These ships were designed in 1942 to land battle ready tanks, vehicles, soldiers, and supplies directly onto enemy beaches.  Over 1,000 of these ships were built for World War II.  Many more were built for the Korean and Vietnam Wars for their ability to navigate inland waterways. USS LST 325 participated in several operations, most notable was D-Day at Omaha Beach, Normandy.  She was there for Operation HUSKY, the invasion of Sicily in 1943.  She sailed as support for the invasion of Salerno, Italy later that year.  This ship has seen 70 years of history and survived as the last fully-operational WWII LST.  Come walk these decks and feel the connection to our shared past.

It was an interesting visit. Our tour guide had no enthusiasm and spoke as if he were the clear eyes guy. But we met some amazing people and had a lot of fun. Just wish we went on a much cooler day. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Can't say it will be a repeat visit but it was a good experience.

No stars. The sign says they open at noon. I got there at 12:45 and the doors were locked. Maybe you will have better luck, but I won't drive out of my way to try it again.
