Join US for a review of the incredible 51-year career of BB-63 the battleship Missouri which fought in WWII the Korean War and Desert Storm. The crew that served on her last voyage could have been grandchildren of the men who fought on her first. Though this behemoth should have been a relic after WWII she was continually upgraded making her a formidable first-line warrior to her final day in commission. Launched in 1944 she was the last battleship built and the last in service. But her most enduring image came in 1945 when the Allies accepted Japan's surrender on her deck in Tokyo Bay. Now a national monument in Pearl Harbor preserving the details of that historic day we step aboard with some of the great men who served in her during the long career of this icon of U.S. naval history.
