U.S.S. Iowa
Tuesday, May 30, 2017
7:00pm to 8:30pm
Buena Vista Branch Library
300 N. Buena Vista St.
Burbank, CA 91505
This year the Burbank Public Library is hosting a special event to commemorate Memorial Day. Kathy Meyer of the Pacific Battleship Foundation will present an illustrated talk introducing us to a remarkable historical treasure, the battleship U.S.S. Iowa which has been refurbished and is now docked at the harbor in San Pedro. The Iowa was commissioned during WWII and saw action in the Pacific, and we will learn about the experience of those who served on the ship. The newly commissioned Iowa was the ship that took Franklin Roosevelt (with special accommodations for the President) across the Atlantic on his way to the Tehran conference with Churchill and Stalin in 1943.
