"wee Vee:" The Battleship That Rose From The Ashes

[CENTER]Not often do you get the chance to read about detailed history of one of US Navy's devoted battleships. They are "no more"...during their sea life, and during WW II these ships were "larger than life itself".
Yes we lost many of them on Dec. 7th, 1941, but one of these giants of the seas, arose from that dreadful attack....was rebuilt....and took out retribution against the very enemy that put her on the bottom during that damning event.
The USS West Virginia (BB-48)...she got her revenge.
Read about her ...and how she got her revenge....this will take you to the link click: HERE
