In October, LST 325 (Landing Ship Tanks) was docked at the Fourth Street wharf in Louisville.
With an old Coast Guard buddy of mine, Don White, I got a chance to visit again the type of ship on which I served in World War II. In celebration of Veterans Day, it seems like a good time to look back at those ships.
LST 325 is the last of more than 1,000 LSTs constructed in World War II by the United States. It was purchased by Greece after the war and used as a cargo and spy ship.
