so would I. the NJ served with us in Nam. we had to send her home. these ole gals were built for war time economy. she was costing us a million bucks a day just to keep her afloat and operating. we simply didn't have enough support ships to keep her going. I wondered why they could not convert them to nuke power. guess it was impractical ??? they're a great way to show the flag. and very intimidating
You know whats sad? We prolly couldn't make something like that anymore. Could you picture a BB up to date? That would be impressive.
