Artist's Description

FEATURED in Today I Am Thankful For (08.17)
(Seen July 29, 29017)
A memorial for the USS San Diego, that stands on land, at Harbor Drive,, in San Diego, California. I have lived here for 33 years, and this is the first time I have seen this. A very impressive memorial.. This is only one of three walls.

Artists: Eugene Daub – San Pedro, California & Louis Quaintance –
Berkeley, California

A fortunate and well-run ship, the USS San Diego (CL-53) was always ready for action, steaming over 300,000 nautical miles, engaging the enemy on 34 different occasions, and never lost a man. She earned 18 battle stars for her World War II service, more than any other ship except the famous carrier Enterprise

Commissioned into service just a month after the Pearl Harbor attack, the San Diego soon joined the Pacific Fleet with which she served nearly continuously throughout World War II.

Decommissioned in 1946, the ship was sold for scrapping in December 1960…(how sad).

I dedicate this photo to the US Military. I was born during the London blitz in 1943, so I am grateful to the US military who helped to stop Hitler.
