This particular LST was originally known as LST-325 during the second World War, USNS LST-325 during its arctic operations in the 1950’s, and later L-144 (A/G Syros) while it was in the service of the Greek Navy. It was acquired by The USS LST Ship Memorial, Inc., in 2000, and caught considerable public attention when the veteran crew with an average age of 72 brought it on a 6,500-mile journey from the Greek island of Crete to Mobile, AL.
Today this ship is permanently docked in Evansville, IN. Once a year it travels to destinations throughout the United States for people to board and tour. We are excited to bring this ship to Dubuque, the first time ever the ship will be this far north.
