LST-325, the one that the veterans sailed to Mobile, Alabama from Greece, is on tour up the Mississippi River. When she has been in Memphis, I took a few photos of her when I visited on my second trip. Some are internal, but I thought they were interesting so I included them as well. She will be continuing up the River for much of the summer.

If you are near one of her stops, I HIGHLY recommend visiting her. The tour guides are all veterans and are a fascinating bunch to listen to. Their knowledge and dedication is nothing short of remarkable. Check out www.lstmemorial.org for stops and dates.
