Mz Suzukaze (san) I would have not thought a KM unterseeboot could get into Great Lake amazing. I will make a point to see it. Will be attending advanced training at the University of Michigan if I ever finish Ph.D. which is not looking real well at this moment. 


unterseeboot

I do hope you get that Ph.D. You seem to be extremely nice Saito, a rarity among forumites.

First: You are super polite and really nice. This is a rare trait on any forum so I thought I'd call you out as a reasonably cool person.

 

Second: if you do get a chance to go further west in Europe, HMS Belfast in London is a good visit. In Poland itself there's Blyskawica, her most famous destroyer.

 

The Western Europeans do not require my services so I fail to travel their wonderful countries.  I would enjoy seeing Britan and Being partially Jewish the camps have always interested me. Opportunity has not presented its self thus far in my life.

If you want to go to Philadelphia. USS Olympia is worth a visit. She is one of the oldest iron-hulled warships still afloat. It was Commodore Dewey's flagship at the Battle of Manila Bay. She is part of the Independence Seaport Museum apparently. http://phillyseaport.org/

They've been struggling to save her for years. I know she is badly in need of repairs but they didn't have enough funds the last I heard. As a bonus you can cross the river and see USS New Jersey. http://www.battleshipnewjersey.org/

I hope I'll be able to visit USS Texas soon. Indeed, she is in dire need of TLC.

I believe they accept donations but unfortunately they did not do what was planned last time with a large influx of funding. Sad it was said to me to be wasted on government studies. Do not know the validity of testament.

This would be fascinating if I am not mistaken this is city where the revolution was controlled from? I will have to put it in plans before my time in USA is at a end.

Actually. U-505 was captured in the North Atlantic in 1944 and was moved afterwards to the Museum of Science and Industry.

Note: I am not an Admiral. The picture here is of Adm. David G. Farragut, the US Navy's first rear admiral, vice admiral and admiral. He served during the American Civil War.

Adm. Japanese say いのなかのかわずたいかいをし

らず (i no naka no kawazu, taikai o shirazu) “the frog in the well knows not of the great ocean” implies,  mentally trapped by a narrow understanding of things. And that is my life so much I do not understand. I am but one subject at any proficiency and this is not it.

Was he at New Orleans? Great Adm. to take river and divide south. America was fortunate to have only one civil war Japan had wars down through time for numerous reasons.

If you do get a chance to visit London to see HMS Belfast it’s also worth going to the Imperial War Museum. At the entrance they have a pair of 15” Naval guns. One taken from HMS Ramilles and the other from HMS Resolution. Both guns saw action in WW II. The museum is also well worth checking out if you’re interested in world war.

She looks like Aurora which I visited. I will see her when I return to USA.

I have read all about London and her wonderful museums. I hope someday to get there. But it's difficult to travel for pleasure when you do it for a living. I can't believe I am complaining about that. The travel is what keeps me going without it? Many apologies for my crying over what someone else would love to do.

Judging by where you live (Tuscon, Arizona), I'd say try the west coast.  Look at USS Midway in San Diego or USS Iowa in Los Angeles.

Don't forget the USS Hornet at Alameda.(CV) USS Pampanito,(Submarine) and SS Jeremiah O'Brien (Liberty Ship) At San Francisco.

I may have life of travel. And fortunate to earn enough to live comfortably. But after last nights dinner, I may just become Hermit. There is something wrong with me or men of this world. Hope it's them but if the past is any indication it's me and my personal baggage. Still, I feel incredibly less. and that is very hard to do.

Tampa, Florida (FL) used to have the USS Requin SS-481, a Tench Class submarine commissioned in 1944. Since 1990 it has been a museum ship at the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (PA). Pittsburgh is not too far from Philadelphia, PA.

 

Tampa has since become the home of the SS American Victory, a Liberty ship from WWII. It is still functional and takes cruises in the spring and fall. I have visited the ship, but have not been on a cruise. If you call ahead of your visit, you can get a guided tour. Here is the webpage for the SS American Victory and they are having an event for Halloween (Oct 31st) for this month.

It's probably almost certainly the men. From your time here you seem to be very nice.

Excellent source of information if you are on Facebook.

I have done the 'Living History Cruise' twice now. Once under power, last year......they towed her.

Supposedly there is plans for a cruise this year, not sure yet if she'll be under power or towed again. They also have plans to take her to Normandy for the 75th.

 

 

Back to OP

Let me point you to the Historic Navel Ship Association. 

http://www.hnsa.org/

 

It breaks it down by country, then by ship, and then gives you a brief history and links to the webpages for the actual ship organizations.

I think that was the site Maggie_Saito was looking for. :Smile_honoring:
