Fairgoers will be able to board and walk the decks of the famous ship to learn about the voyages LST ships made during World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. "True to our theme this year of honoring the men and women of the armed forces, we're bringing in this in- credible part of our nation's military history," said Rich Meyers, executive director, Fair Saint louis. "This ship has such a great storymfrom her maiden voyage in the 1940s to her triumphant return trip home from Greece in 2000--that we believe history buffs and novices alike will be captivated with this display." The LST-325 served the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Mer- chant Marines for close-in discharge and retrieval of equipment, supplies and troops. It was capable of haul- ing 20 Sherman tanks and up to 300 combat troops, housed a n on-board hospital to treat sol- diers injured in battle, and had a temporary morgue. The massive deck of the LST-325 is so big that reconnaissance flights could actually take off from the deck. When the U.S. military de- commissioned the ship in 1961, it was sold to Greece where it was operational throughout the 1990s. It was brought back to the United States in 2000, and a three- year effort to refurbish the ship into a memorial and museum began. St. Louis is an early stop on a one-month, 650-mile journey on the Mississippi. Visitors will be able to expe- rience the ship in its original wartime configuration. To preserve the memory of the men who served to U.S. mili- tary, the names of all who died while serving on the LST are displayed on the ship. In addition to the LST-325, Fair Saint Louis will also have on display an array of other military equipment for the public to explore. "There's no better time than now to learn about our mili- tary and how they've protected our freedom through some very difficult challenges this century," Meyers said. Fair Saint Louis runs this year July 3, 4 and 5. Fair Saint Louis is a not-for- profit organizqation. Its mis- sion is to showcase the civic pride and spirit of the people of Greater St. Louis through an annul patriotic and educa- tional celebration. **Personal Injury **Social Security Paternity DWI & Traffic Probate LANGE AND LANGE Attorneys At Law Serving Your Legal Needs In The Areas Of: **Automobile Accidents Adoptions Bankruptcy Deeds Living Trust & Wills Powers of Attorney 885-2202 **Worker's Comp Divorce & Modifications Criminal Cases Corporations Guardianships 299 Theresa - Cuba, Missouri **No Initial Consultation Fee On Certain Cases cfp 4/17 Help Us Celebrate!! 1 Year at our new Jocation )RD COUNTY EYE CARE 402 w.
