The only US Navy ship with a bathtub (built for Pres. Roosevelt), the only IOWA class that served in both theatres of WWII, fought in the Korean War, and reactivated in the 1980's for the Cold War. IOWA fired 2700lb, 16" shells over 24 miles that could penetrate 30 ft of reinforced concrete. Still able to be called back to active duty, she is truly a treasure to visit. « less
