Battleship Texas

Not sure when this was taken, but possibly after the retrofitting in 1990 before moving back to the permanent berth near the San Jacinto battlefield. How many kids get to sleep on an almost hundred year old battleship that fought in both world wars? Mr. B. will in January with his Cub Scout pack. Count me as another kid. I’ll also be there.

  1. These big guns still look mighty impressive to me.

  2. Only problem is the missile frigates can now stand off beyond the horizon, out of range of the big guns, and sink a BB with ease.
