Captain Scheu talked about the history of the USS North Carolina. The first of ten fast battleships built by the United States which saw service in World War II, USS North Carolina set a standard for new shipbuilding technology that combined high speed with powerful armament. Her superior performance during the Battle of the Eastern Solomons in August 1942 established the primary role of the fast battleship as a protector of the aircraft carrier. USS North Carolina is the most decorated battleship of World War II with 15 battle stars, having participated in every major naval offensive in the Pacific from Guadalcanal to Tokyo Bay. The battleship was brought to Wilmington in 1961 where she serves as a memorial to all the men and women who gave their lives during World War II. Numerous U.S. Navy video clips were shown. close
