David Way (n) -
1. Curator of the battleship USS Iowa
2. Naval Historian
You've probably played Battleship, but have you ever been on one? Los Angeles has the distinct privileged of housing one of the world's most powerful battleships: The USS Iowa. This steel reinforced behemoth owned the seas during the second world war. It had a second life during the Regan administration, when he called for a 600 ship Navy. Now, she is an amazingly preserved museum located in San Pedro California. I sat down with curator David Way to discuss landlubbers, Victory the official canine mascot, and the combat engagement center.
