USS North Carolina
The following image was created by Charles Apple in 1995 and illustrates the USS North Carolina (BB-55) lead-ship of North Carolina class fast battleships (sister ship was USS Washington). She was the first newly constructed American battleship to enter service during World War II, and took part in every major naval offensive in the Pacific Theater of Operations; her 15 Βattle Stars made her the most highly decorated American battleship of World War II! The distinguished battleship serves as a museum ship since 29 April 1962 in Wilmington, North Carolina. Read more about the ship here.
