Celebrating the big guns of the USS Wisconsin BB-64

I love the picture galleries on this prestigious battleship’s website.

And the famous visitors too!  Everyone from Marie Osmond to Pegleg Pete(great pic, btw) has taken a stroll on her deck.

Even Burl Ives showed up!  That must have been one hell of a boat party.

….Which had nothing to do with her collision with the USS Eaton in 1956, I’m sure.

    Cool pictures.  I thought the pegleg pete picture was photoshopped, but I guess the guns really are that big.
