S.S. Victory Lane
Movie stars are usually human, but the S.S. Victory Lane is a ship. The World War II-era vessel has loomed large on the silver screen in epics such as Pearl Harbor, Titanic, and The Thin Red Line, and on TV shows including Alias and NCIS. Its accomplishments, however, go far beyond appearing in films and sporting the world's largest pair of Ray-Bans. In 1950, the steely cargo ship helped evacuate 125,000 Korean refugees, and went on to serve in postwar aid missions. Now the nationally recognized historic landmark—renovated by WWII Marine veterans—serves as a floating museum for visitors to explore. It's also a fully operational ship, embarking on Victory At Sea cruises several times a year.
The ship was a real surprise and I learned much about the role of the Merchant Marine. Very interesting and recommended.Andrew L., Yelp, 7/19/13
AWESOME SHIP! Took my boys there one day to see the ship and saw a couple of younger guys working on the deck.Christopher S., Yelp, 7/24/13
