USS Missouri  BB-63

Rare and Astounding Photo




 

 

This rare and astounding photo comes to us courtesy of the men and women of the USS Missouri Memorial Association in Hawaii and our friend, Ford Murray.


It is doubtful you have ever, or will ever again, see a photo of a US Battleship from this angle.  This photo was taken shortly before the USS Missouri returned to its permanent berth after undergoing repairs in this dry dock.  In the foreground are the men and women who work or volunteer on the Missouri as well as some of those who made repairs to the ship.
