The battleship USS Texas is being moved to Galveston for hull repairs. The ship is the only battleship remaining to have served in both WW1 and WW2. Repairs are expected to take 12-18 months. The memorial museum ship will then be relocated from it's San Jacinto berth, though it has not yet been determined where the new site will be.

Growing up (and still living) in Houston, we frequented the 'Battleship Texas' often, first me as a child with my parents then me as an adult taking visitors and then my own kids.

This zoomed in pic was taken from atop the adjacent San Jacinto Monument:



Look at them guns:

NIce.

Just saw a rather heartbreaking video by the New Jersey team about the USS Enterprise CV6. I truly wish that one could have been preserved

Yeah, of all the carriers to have saved - that should have been the one!
