The USS Missouri is an Iowa Class battleship. She fought in the battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa as well as shelling the Japanese home island. The Japanese delegation famously signed the terms of unconditional surrender on her decks on September 2, 1945 while the ship was anchored in Tokyo Bay. The ship also fought during the Korean War and Desert Storm. It was steadily modified through the years and was finally struck from the Naval Vessel Register in 1995. USS Missouri survives today as a memorial in Pearl Harbor next to the famous Arizona Memorial. This print shows Missouri during a stop at Guam on her way home after the Japanese surrender.
