Description

I took this "small" gigapan early on January 7, the day the USS Missouri was launched after an $18,000,000 refurbishing. I was fortunate enough to be invited on board during the filling of the dry dock, and the subsequent towing of the ship to its mooring at Pier Foxtrot 5. It is again in formation with the USS Arizona. Many veterans and active duty personnel were on board, as well as members of the USS Missouri Memorial Association. The ship is now owned and operated by the non-profit memorial association.

Upon disembarking, each guest was given a memento of the occasion - a small piece of the ship (a replaced bolt or plug).
