Take an in-depth tour of this Pacific Fleet Destroyer. The ship is maintained in original condition throughout, and most spaces, from the Boiler room to the Bridge, are open for your inspection and enjoyment. A must see is the All-Veterans' Memorial commemorating the Vientnam POWs. As the flagship of the Bremerton Historic Ships Association, she honors not only the members of the modern Navy, but those who helped build and maintain the Navy's ships as well.
