Battleship IOWA’s 70th Birthday
The Battleship IOWA’s public 70th birthday celebration is planned for February 17 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m, with a special birthday cake, FDR impersonator, music and other entertainment.
The first 70 paid guests will receive a FREE challenge coin courtesy of the IOWA’s on-board store.
Challenge coins are traditionally presented by commanders in recognition of special achievement by a member of the unit. Beginning at 10:00 am, when IOWA opens for tours, will be the first opportunity to earn FREE coin.
Additionally, in honor of this momentous occasion and “Celebrating of the American Spirit,” the Pacific Battleship Center will begin offering FREE admission to guests celebrating their birthdays on board throughout 2013.
Any guest showing proof of their birthday, with either a valid ID or copy of birth certificate, will get a free Tour Alpha ticket. This special promotion will run through February 21, 2014. Guests will get to see the Big 16” Guns, Main Deck, FDR/Captains’ cabin, armored bridge, missile launchers, video theater and much more.
