WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: LAUNCH

The USS 325 LST (Landing Ship Tank) docked on the North Shore in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania during the beginning of September, 2010.  This ship landed troops at Normandy on D-Day June 6, 1944.  The largest ship ever designed/built to place tanks, troops, and cargo onto a hostile beach, and then retracts off – 1,051 were built for WWII – 70% were built on the Ohio and Illinois Rivers. They were considered “The ship that won the war.”   The USS 325 is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
