Note: she is flying a homeward bound pennant.

It is a tradition in the Navy for a ship to fly a red, white and blue pennant on her return voyage back to her home. In the blue field, the number of stars would represent every officer. For the enlisted crewmen, every foot of the red and white striped section would represent them. Sometimes, balloons would be attached to the end of the pennant so it would touch the water. When the ship returned home, the pennant would be cut up and given to each crewmen.

Hey. My dad was in the Gulf War. He was on the USS Wisconsin. He had a USS Wisconsin Cruise Jacket. He had it stolen from him during the war. If anyone has one has one that they would like to sell please hit me up. This would mean a lot to him and I want to see my dad have something that he was attached to so deeply. If you text me I will not be the one responding my mom will. This is what it should look like.

U.S. Navy Battleship Division 2 in line abreast formation, 7 June 1954, in the Virginia Capes operating area, on the only occasion that all four Iowa-class battleships were photographed operating together. The ship closest to the camera is USS Iowa (BB-61). The others are (from near to far): USS Wisconsin (BB-64); USS Missouri (BB-63) and USS New Jersey (BB-62).

The gigantic and veteran #Battleship #Iowa class ′′ USS Wisconsin (BB-64)′′ , navigating the Arabian Sea, 1988. It had a length superior to the great Yamato and Musashi. Served in the first Gulf War and was decommissioned in 1991. Now it's a museum ship, how the four remaining battleships were dismantled and affected after the Gulf War, this was the last time the battleships of the United States they participated actively in a war.

I think my favorite naval history tidbit is when USS Wisconsin (BB-64) took a tiny glancing hit from a NK gun battery only to immediately utterly fucking obliterate it and the entire surrounding area with all 9 of her guns and Duncan’s crew was like “dude”

AAI RQ-2A Pioneer ‘159’ by Alan Wilson Via Flickr: c/n AV-159 A reconnaissance UAV, some 175 RQ-2s were built and the type first entering service in 1986. This US Navy example operated from the battleship USS Wisconsin (BB-64) during the 1991 Gulf War. During a low pass of Faylaka Island, Kuwait, to assess damage from naval gunfire, several Iraqi troops signalled to the aircraft that they intended to surrender. This was the first time in history that humans had surrendered to a robot. It was donated to the Smithsonian Institute by the US Navy in October 2000 and is seen on display as part of the ‘Military Unmanned Aerial Vehicles’ exhibition (Gallery 204). National Air and Space Museum, Washington D.C. 11th May 2015
