    Japan has MIKASA, which was Admiral Togo's flagship at the Battle of Tsushima Strait. There is also the sailing frigate USS CONSTITUTION moored in Boston and the Spanish-American War cruiser USS OLYMPIA, Admiral Dewey's flagship at the Battle of Manila Bay. I don't remember where she's moored, however. The Russians have the 1905-built cruiser AURORA moored at St. Petersburg.

    The biggest changes are the new aircraft pavillion for the smaller aircraft, some new tanks, and the submarine Drum is on land.

    Hope you can make it back one day.

    Of course, you'll bring some Moonshine with you? hahaha! back in 1975- a classmate in college (at the time an officer in the USAF) was stationed at Keesler AFB (Biloxi, Missisipi) I managed to hitch a ride from Panama (long ride to California via the Pacific from Nam!) to spend part of the humongous amount of time l managed to accumulate...
