Questions overheard on the Pittsburgh Trip from visitors

* How did you get the ship up here?
* Do you guys actually sleep on the "boat"?
* Did you bring it up on a train?
* I heard you brought it up on semi trailers.
* What countries do the flags on the mast represent?
* What caliber are the guns?
* Are those red things depth charges?
* Were those guns actually used?
* Why don't you stay open till ten pm?

and my favorite

"do you guys ever take this boat out west?"

I am sure there are many more.

Where's the head?



Was great to see you... just sorry there wasn't time to visit much! (A good thing for the ship, bad for us!)

A senior gentleman approached me while I was explaining the 40mm guns.
With the big generator going it was hard to hear back there on the 01 level.
He tugged on my shirt sleeve and directed me over to the starboard side by the ladder.
He pointed to the 20mm deck gun on the main deck and said loudly
"Eignteen months on that #!@%@$#$%, !! You will have to speak up sonny"
He explained he was indeed a WWII vet on an LST assigned to that particular gun mount.

Some of these seniors are quite a hoot to talk to.

You've never heard me referring to the Captain or Jerry Howe in those terms.

since your 1st string tour guides were in the rear with the gear. Were you able to (snow) answer these questions to the liking of the tourists? ( I'm sorry Seabat put me up to that!)
