With the arrival of LST 325 planned for October 1, in Evansville,IN.
I would like to encourage as many people that can to welcome them when they arrive. If you can bring your rigs it would be great. The ship is scheduled to sail into Evansville between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Oct. 1. This is according to the captain. Now for the bad news with hurricane Rita approaching it may delay the LST's departure from Mobile. If the time or date changes I will post it here. Also there are river trips being planned for the next few years nothing set in stone yet. I do know they plan to be in Cincinnatti for the big ships show next year. They are also looking for WWII era vehicles to display on the ship. I will know more about this after they arrive.

The LST is going to be delayed because of the Hurricane. The captain said he would wait until after the storm to head out. I will post the new date when available

Guys, I took my kids aboard that LST this summer when she was briefly at Alexandria, in the DC area.

Pretty neat. Real nice guys. Bought a commemorative t-shirt, and the captain signed my 6-year-old son's navy cap. Cool!

The Higgins boats that are mounted on the ship sure look tiny...I can see why guys were ferociously seasick on D-Day....
