USS Idaho - 63alfred
Picture I took onboard the USS Missouri before when it was stored in Bremerton prior to it being moved to Hawaii.  The USS Idaho was in Tokyo Bay with my Dad on it when the Instrument of Surrender was signed.  There was some distaste by the crew as the Idaho as well as other ships had seen much more action than the Missouri, but alas Truman was president and he was from the Show Me State!
