This weekend has been all about resting and letting my body recuperate from what I put it through this past week.
The LST-325 docked for tours at Madison, Indiana on 09/14/2013. This LST (Landing Ship, Tank) was used on D-Day +1 to offload tanks, trucks, jeeps, and troops at Omaha Beach and to transport injured soldiers back to England for care. It was utilized in Korea & Vietnam before being decommissioned and sold to the Greek government. When the Greeks were ready to scrap it, it was purchased by a group of veterans who have worked to restore her as she was during World War II. Her home port is Evansville, IN, but she sails during the summer so that others may board her and explore a piece of history.

I just added a seventh antique radio to my collection!
