Armor plate from USS Texas (1892) at the Illinois state fair in Springfield, sometime between September 17 to 25, 1915.
I have not been able to find out what happened to this armor plate after the fair. Most likely it was scrapped.

After Ford and Stan finds Dipper having a collection of female romantic-fantasy novels, they became kinda scared their great nephew will lost a chance to be a proper manly hetero man, marrying a wealthy nice girl. So, after a long talk, they enlisted Dipper in navy, to let him build up confidence, enjoy adventure on the sea and have guys around to show him how to be a proper man.... well, unfortunately, they forgot how gay navy can be....
Meanwhile, enemies attack on many USA navy ships, looking like the war will happen between the USA and them. Luckily, the USA navy takes care of the treath and settles down peace again after months of almost-upcoming-war conflicts. With that, all country is celebrating. Bill (who is int he navy as well, hearing news while being in the city) is so freaking happy that he gives no attention and kisses the first pretty face he sees... well, once he opens his eyes he realizes it's another navy sailor guy (Dipper), so he is a little bit embarrassed and runs away.
However, after he gets home, being in his bed, he actually still can feel the kiss and kinda realizes that he fell in love with the guy, needing to see him again.
Unfortunately, he doesn't know the sailor's name or from where he is...but one day, Bill meets up with a crew from another navy ship, and here is the kiss guy, blushing right as he sees Bill who is shouting at him "Hey! Hey! It's me! The guy who kissed you in front of whole city!!"

Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base
This is where my sister works! This base has practically every branch working here - except space. Those three helios (helicopters) are marines and they seat two people (they are big but they are of the smaller size believe it or not!) And yes, there are fighter jets and there are two big boys (Boeing C-17) sitting way back there but you may not see them in the photo. We did approach the helios (snapped a picture of one which was given the number 14) but couldn’t stay long due to risk getting into trouble.
There isn’t much activity going on (we did walk in on her two friends just chilling, one eating a ice pop) on base so, no landings today. We did walk threw a hanger of her shop and I saw three birds (thats what planes are called and they are F-18s) chilling in the back. Sis says they are under some kind of maintenance. She doesn’t necessarily work on the birds: she directs them. Yep! She’ll be on the field directing the helios to land or take off and direct birds to the runway.
She even shown me (the bones at least lol) of their next Mardi Gras float - designed after the USS Constitution. She designed it and the guy snacking on the ice pop is helping her build it. Yes, just those two. It will be awesome when it gets done!
It was cool seeing her base and where she worked.

Navy pilots describe encounters with UFOs
Bill Whitaker reports on the regular sightings of unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAP, that have spurred a report due to Congress next month. "60 Minutes" is the most successful television broadcast in history. Offering hard-hitting investigative reports, interviews, feature segments and profiles of people in the news, the broadcast began in 1968 and is still a hit, over 50 seasons later, regularly making Nielsen's Top 10.
