This particular LST was used in the Sicily, Salerno and Normany Landings. As a result, she received 3 battle stars. After the war, she was sold to Sand Products of Detroit to be used as a cargo carrier. In 2002, she was acquired by the Great Lakes Naval Museum to be used as a museum ship.
As I said, she was used during World War II. These are some infantry weapons from that war. The top one is an M-1 Carbine. The next one is a Thompson Gun and the last is a Browning Automatic Weapon.
This is a telegraph (I think).
Different types of radios.
The flag that flew over the ship as she participated in the Normandy Landings. She was used on Omaha Beach.
The crew spaces. As you can see it was pretty crowded.
