Battle For the Bathtub

New, 1 comment

The USS Iowa "is the only Navy vessel with a bathtub — a feature installed for [Franklin] Roosevelt when he was shuttled to the Middle East to meet with Churchill and Stalin at the Teheran Conference in 1943." No wonder San Pedro, which has been talking about getting the ship for months, and now Vallejo are fighting so hard to win the battleship. LA officials have already signed off on docking the Iowa at the waterfront as a floating museum, but now it's up to the Navy to pick sides. They'll make a decision in May. [LAT]
