Residents of Morning Pointe of Hixson boarded the LST 325 on Monday at Ross's Landing. The Landing Ship Tank is the largest ship ever built to place tanks, troops and cargo onto a hostile beach, then retract off. They were built for WWII. The ship could hold up to 300 troops for long distances. The ship sails up to six weeks per year and is only visiting two cities this year, Chattanooga being one of them. Shown are Adrian Lewisson, Betty Page, Mary Fulghum, and Bob Lecroy.
