2023 USS Beale Reunion
Evansville, Indiana

Special Activities


Landing Ship Tank (LST) US 325, is one of many LSTs built in Evansville for service during WW II. It is only fitting, she has returned to Evansville as a "sea worthy" ship that continues to cruise the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers and serve as a living memorial to her crews.

We will have a private tour while she is her home port and moored  on the Evansville Ohio River water front. The tour is being coordinated by John Davis, a crew member of LST 325 and our USS Beale DD-DDE 471.

Cost is $15.00 per person

The history of the LST, and especially LST US 325, can be seen at the following link:
