USS Missouri being refloated in Pearl Harbor drydock #4. It took 2 1/2 months to repair her hull, miscellaneous rust, some new hull plates, new$$ dehumidifying system and other issues. For the refloat, 700 people, including VIP’s, MMA founders, ship’s crew, volunteers, and over 100 military to be reenlisted during the trip out of dry dock and back to our Pearl Harbor pier.
I am very grateful to be allowed to be aboard, and honored to take part in this chapter of the USS Missouri’s history. God bless America.
