This ship is referred to as a Liberty Ship and is the only one remaining from WW II. This ship has a lot of history and was one of over 6,900 ships used to help bring supplies to Normandy for D-day..... more »
On a recent trip to San Francisco with family, we visited the SS Jeremiah O'Brien, a restored and functional WWII Liberty ship. My interest was the fact that it had seen duty on Omaha Beach on D-Day..... more »
A must see experience in San Francisco. The story of the ship and simply being on this vessel is an incredible experience. The volunteers are absolutely awesome people, and they were delighted to fill me in on anything that came up. Make sure to check out the engine room and the crew quarters...and everything. See everything. Great for anyone interested in history.
Fascinating history. If you go (totally worth the $20) be sure to watch the movie in the museum. So thankful for all the brave men who served on her to deliver supplies and soldiers during WWII.
