The ships on display here bring to mind the incredible sacrifices our servicemen made in the Greatest Generation. Start with the submarine, unless you are claustrophobic, because the quarters are incredibly tight. The thought of being under the sea in this tiny little boat is impossible to comprehend. The captains quarters is smaller than an old half bathroom. How these men were able to fight and not go insane is a tribute to their physical and mental toughness.
We moved on to the destroyer Laffey, with some incredible history displayed in photos and the tour of the ship.
The Yorktown, the most famous of the three, is very impressive in it's size and power. An entire day could be spent just on this ship without covering it all. The plane displays and the sheer size take hours to visit.
We spent 5 hours here, and to me it seemed like minutes.
