Veterans attend USS Iowa re-dedication ceremony

Posted:

Many veterans who served on the USS Iowa were in California Wednesday-- as their old battleship is re-dedicated as a permanent fixture at the Port of Los Angeles.

For veterans of the USS Iowa, Wednesday was a special day and perhaps their final reunion.

A ceremony for one of the most storied battleships in the history of the American fleet- the USS Iowa.

The Iowa has been restored and will open as a floating museum later this week.

The ship holds many memories for the soldiers themselves.

The Iowa served stints during World War II, Korea and the Cold War.
