LST Ship Memorial to Visit Aurora This Fall

A little piece of our nation’s wartime past is coming to Aurora.  The USS LST 325, a memorial ship that honors former LST military vessels, will visit Aurora this fall and will be open for visitors and public tours throughout its stay.  The ship will visit Aurora September 22-27, with public tours tentatively scheduled for Sept. 24, 25 and 26.

The LST (or Landing Ship Tank) 325 was originally launched in 1942 and served in Algerian, Italian, Tunisian and English waters during World War II, among others.  The vessel was also part of Force "B", the back-up force for troops going ashore at Omaha Beach in Normandy on June 6, 1944.  It later made many trips between England and France ferrying troops, equipment, ammunition and supplies during 1944 and 1945.

The LST today

Today, the LST is docked at its homeport in Evansville, Indiana.  While in Aurora, it will be docked at the Aurora Ferry Landing.  Veterans groups and all other interested members of the public are invited aboard for a tour during its stay in our community.

We’ll have more information on the LST’s September visit as fall approaches.  In the meantime, to learn more about the vessel and read a complete history of the ship, log on to the LST Memorial website.
