HISTORY:

Battleship USS Iowa began its service during WWII after being built at New York Navy Ship Yard.  Namesake of the last class of Battleships, she went on to serve during three different eras.  Today, she serves as a symbol of American freedom and a community platform for education, veterans, and community.
