The legendary Battleship last sailed the ocean waters over 73 years ago, and just this past September, the U.S.S. South Dakota Memorial celebrated its 50th anniversary. I visited the historic site this week and was overcome with a sense of history and pride for the fabled ship.

If you've haven't had the chance to visit the memorial, please do so. We're fortunate to have such a place to visit in our own backyard.
