USS Alabama

Buddy and I took a tour of the USS Alabama and the submarine USS Drum. We also saw some war helicopters and statues.  The Alabama was HUGE!  It was like a city in the battleship.  I never knew the main battle guns were so big- 16 inch bore 
They had a memorial area for Vietnam vets and Buddy saw the type of helicopter he was a crew chief on in VN.  They also had a tribute to the four legged soldiers working along their human counterparts. It all was very emotional.  God Bless our Soldiers, past, present and those that didn't come home.

We saw a B-52 named The Calamity Jane!  I had to take a picture of my little girls name sake (Mach One Calamity Jane)!

We get home to a beautiful sunset.. We will hate to leave here.
