Battle Stations: PT Boats

I was researching military history on YouTube and came across: Battle Stations: PT Boats (War History Documentary):

I don’t remember when I first read or heard about PT boats, but probably the movie In Harm’s Way – or, starring John Wayne and an impressive cast of actors and actresses.

There are a few remaining PT boats around, Out of those in the list, only two (2) are fully operational as PT boats in the U. S.: PT-305 New Orleans, Louisiana. and PT-658, Portland, Oregon.

The New Orleans PT boat is part of the National World War II Museum
For the Portland, Oregon PT boat,, and for a virtual tour: Facebook page:
Several of the remaining PT boats are operational, but with different functions. Some are static displays and others have been purchased or acquired with the goal of restoring them.
