What makes this Ship so special?
During World War II, THE USS NORTH CAROLINA earned 15 battle stars and established her primary role as protector of aircraft carriers. The Ship carried out 9 shore bombardments, sank an enemy troopship, and destroyed 24 enemy aircraft. Japanese radio announcements claimed that NORTH CAROLINA had been sunk 6 times! She survived many close calls and even a hit from a Japanese torpedo. In 1958, an announcement was made of her impending scrapping. The Save Our Ship (SOS) statewide campaign was initiated and led by citizens of North Carolina to save the Ship. The campaign proved to be a success and the Battleship arrived on October 2, 1961.
