Attractions Mobile AL Homes for Sale: Battleship Memorial Park

There are many interesting things to do near Mobile Al Homes for Sale and perhaps one of the most unique is Battleship Memorial Park. This park is home to the USS Alabama, a ship that earned nine battle stars during World War II, and is also home to other military aircraft and ships.

The USS Alabama was first commissioned on August 16, 1942 at Norfolk Navy Yard. This 35,000-ton battleship was deployed to the North Sea, where it protected convoys that were traveling between England and Russia. It l was later transferred to the Pacific Fleet, where it provided gunfire for troops who were performing amphibious assaults on certain Japanese-held islands in the region. During that time, this warship was credited with shooting down 22 Japanese planes as well.

The USS Drum is also housed at Battlefield Memorial Park. This submarine was first commissioned on November 1, 1941, and was the first to enter combat during World War II. She is responsible for clearing Pearl Harbor on April 14, 1942 during her first war patrol, and was also involved in sinking numerous Japanese cargo ships.

After buying a ticket, guests can embark on a tour of the grounds at their own leisure. Among some of the military equipment on display, include several tanks, armored personnel carriers, an amphibious tractor and several warplanes. The facility can also be rented for special events such as birthday parties.
