I don’t remember when, but my father was still alive so it was pre-1977, that we went to the USS Alabama memorial in Mobile, Alabama. We were in a time crunch which meant I only go to view stuff that was topside on the Alabama. We did visit the USS Drum, a submarine that’s part of the same park. This is going to be part of my Ship Museum post that I am working on, but thought if I started posting about some of them in the meantime, it will help me to complete the post and allow individual ship memorial posts that include more information than what will be included in the bigger post.

The Park’s artifact collection contains representative Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine and Coast Guard aircraft from before World War II through the Persian Gulf War. Included are a Mach 3+ A-12 Blackbird, the submarine Drum, tanks and artillery. Alabama conducts youth group overnight encampments.
I have never made it back to the battleship after that lone visit, but it’s on my Bucket List.
I also included in this post: What Interesting, Unusual, Odd, Strange, or Other Events, Museums, Etc. Have You Visited Or Want to Visit?.
