Earlier this year the battleship USS Iowa was brought to her new home berth in San Pedro.  Recently the Iowa has been opened for public tours where much of the ship can be seen while work is in progress to open more of the ship for public viewing.

A LA Harbor tour boat offered the best access for photos of the Iowa, from which these images were taken on the 15th of October, 2012.  In addition to views of the Iowa, some photos of other harbor activities and the Vincent Thomas bridge were taken for display in this album.

Left the states Nov of 1965 and arrived on Okinawa and trained for jungle fighting until I landed at the Da Nang airbase the first week of 1966. I was with Delta company 1st platoon 1/1 until I left in Dec of 1966.
