Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    The War Museum

    The U.S.S. Nevada was one of the only ships to get under way during the attack on Pearl Harbor, but received hits from a torpedo and 6 bombs, forcing her to beach. She was repaired and went on to serve in the Atlantic on convoy escort duty. She also served as a fire-support ship at Normandy, and in Southern France, Iwo Jima and Okinawa.
