Second in her class but first to launch, the U.S.S. Texas (BB-35) is a veteran of both world wars and the pride of the Texas Navy. The only ship of her class still afloat, she’s made history and seen history, and still has plenty to share in her role as a museum ship. Join us as we discuss her incredible journey and what she means to us and the people of Texas.
