Historic battleship makes last voyage

June 10, 2012

Following years of aging in the San Francisco Bay area's "mothball fleet," the 887-foot long U.S.S. Iowa, a ship that once carried President Franklin Roosevelt to a World War II summit to meet with Churchill, Stalin and Chiang Kai Shek made a brief final voyage on June 9 to its permanent berth at the Port of Los Angeles, where it will open as a naval museum next month.
