FReeper Canteen ~ Road Trip: Happy Independence Day From Patriots Point, So Carolina! ~ 5 July 2011

Road Trip: Happy Independence Day From Patriots Point, South Carolina!

Mount Pleasant is a suburban town in Charleston County, South Carolina, United States, within the Charleston–North Charleston–Summerville Metropolitan Statistical Area.

At the foot of the Arthur Ravenel Bridge is Patriot's Point, a naval and maritime museum, home to the World War II aircraft carrier USS Yorktown, which is now a museum ship. The Ravenel Bridge, an eight lane highway that was completed in 2006, spans the Cooper River and links Mount Pleasant with downtown Charleston.

The history of Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum began in the summer of 1975 when the legendary aircraft carrier USS Yorktown appeared on the horizon of Charleston Harbor. A few months later, the USS Yorktown was dedicated as the first ship of the Naval & Maritime Museum on the 200th birthday of the United States Navy. Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum was officially opened to the public on January 3, 1976.

Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum would become one of the largest museums of its kind in the world with the addition of other Historic Landmark ships like the destroyer USS Laffey, known as “The Ship That Would Not Die”, the Balao class submarine Clamagore and the Treasury class Coast Guard cutter Ingham (the Ingham would later move to the Miami Dade Historical Maritime Museum in 2009).

Priceless war planes used during wars and conflicts spanning from WWII to Desert Storm are featured aboard the Yorktown's 40,000 square foot hangar bay and atop the 888 foot flight deck. Patriots Point is also the home of the Congressional Medal of Honor Society and their official Medal of Honor Museum with tons of interactive exhibits.

Located landside is the only replica of a Vietnam Support Base in the country as well as a Cold War Submarine Memorial paying tribute to the sacrifices and triumphs made by the men and women during the Cold War.

The USS Laffey is one of the most storied destroyers in US history. Named in honor of an earlier vessel that had been sunk off Guadalcanal after going toe-to-toe with a battleship ten times her size (both ships were named in honor of a Union seaman who earned the Medal of Honor during the Battle of Yazoo City during the Civil War), the Laffey saw service in both the Atlantic and Pacific Theaters of fighting.

On D-Day, Laffey was part of the Allied invasion fleet, providing artillery support for the troops ashore and anti-submarine protection for the ships bringing in the men and supplies. During an attack on a German artillery position near Cherbourg on June 25, Laffey was hit by a German 11-inch shell, but fortunately the shell had been sabotaged by Czech slave laborers and did not explode.

Transferred to the Pacific after repairs, Laffey took part in the fighting off the Philippines and Iwo Jima, but her greatest moment was off Okinawa on April 16. Fifty Japanese aircraft launched the largest kamikaze attack on a single ship with their target being the Laffey. Twenty-seven aircraft managed to get through the CAP, hitting the Laffey with four bombs, six kamikaze strikes, another kamikaze that bounced off and exploded alongside, and numerous straffings, but she survived. Of the 336 men onboard, 32 were killed and another 71 were wounded, but they managed to bring their ship home.

Repaired and returned to service, Laffey served in the Korean War before being assigned to the Sixth Fleet in the Med for the remainder of her career before being retired in 1968.

They are banned. However, the city has a Fireworks Fandango downtown, where there is minimal danger of fire, and they are about to begin.

We don’t usually go because it’s so hot outside and there are no parking places to be had.

...and yes....it’s been nearly 10 months since we got measurable rainfall. :(

Aloha again Night Owl!

My son and his gal will coming down a little later so we can go over to Moku Olu for the fireworks display but the little wahines are over on Oahu with their Tutu visiting their great grandma (Tutu Nui). But I'm sure they'll get to see some fireworks tonight too maybe at Kaneohe MCS.

They missed a birthday party yesterday at Onekahakaha Beach too.....some thing they've always enjoyed....with about twenty other little wahines and kanes all about the same size frolicking on the little sandy beach.

Kinda hard to sort 'em all out when it's time to go home.
