Did You Know?
USS Iowa (BB-61), commissioned in 1943, is referred to as "Big Stick". This nickname was applied to USS Iowa for its role as the Big Stick of the Pacific during WWII. USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) commissioned in 1986, is also nicknamed Big Stick for TR's well known quotation. See more
Aerial view of the "Iowa" from the bow shows bow number 61 (correct for USS Iowa) but the ship id is also painted on the forward 16" turret and it is 63 - USS Missouri. See more
