USS Milwaukee is at Veterans Park


In case you haven't been by Veterans Park lately, there's a battleship sitting on the lakefront for a few more days.  This is one of the newest ships built for the Navy in Marinette, Wisconsin and it will be commissioned Saturday. Unfortunately, there's snow forecasted for the weekend, so it may be a blustery event.  Tickets have already been distributed for the event, but if you have a chance, you might want to go see it while it's here.

This is a newer design called a littoral combat ship, made to get into tight spaces. I've read that it's incredibly fast.  During testing it took out 40 sailboats in Door County with the waves it made!  You can see an interview from FOX 6 about the ship
