#Memorial Day is the day set aside once a year in which we celebrate and give thanks to the United States Military. We remember those who gave their lives so that we could live a better one. Memorial Day is this Monday, May 27, 2019, and the USS Battleship North Carolina will be celebrating the holiday.
Aboard the #Battleship #North Carolina, Memorial Day celebrations begin with a military guest speaker, and are followed by (not particularly in this order) a 21-gun salute by the Marine Corps Honor Guard, an all-service Color Guard, the playing of Taps by a military band, and finally by tossing a memorial wreath into the water.
The town of #Wilmington has something special to share this Memorial Day. Along the slew of the #Cape Fear River, is a very regal and distinguished item—the USS Battleship North Carolina. The people of Wilmington invite guests of the town to visit this wondrous battleship and walk its decks. You can imagine the days when the crew aboard it went about their daily lives and came across fierce battles in the Pacific Theatre during the #World War II.
The young men aboard the #USS North Carolina were raised during the Great Depression; they were unwavering in their desire to serve this country during a most needy time. It is these men, now much older, who will share their stories, old photographs, and memoirs with you. You will also be able to browse along the decks and check out the many exhibits aboard this mighty battleship.
This Memorial Day you can take a step back and relive the days of the USS North Carolina. You can try to picture yourself navigating the waters, starting up the engines and even firing off the guns.
On June 15, 2019, Webb Paranormal Group is going to perform an investigation of the USS North Carolina to learn more about the past people and events that occurred on the ship.
