This marker is dedicated to the brave men and women who built, serviced, and served aboard the battleship U.S.S. NEVADA (BB-36). Presented by the grateful citizens of the State of Nevada on this day 11 March 2016, the centennial anniversary of her commissioning."



Whereas, on December 7, 1941, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and;
Whereas, although the U.S.S. Nevada sustained heavy damage during the attack, it was able to destroy several enemy aircraft; and,
Whereas, the men who died that infamous day demonstrated their extraordinary courage and heroism in defending their country; and
Whereas, in sacrificing their lives for their country, those men exemplified the highest ideals of American society; and
Whereas, by recognizing their ultimate sacrifice, we honor those men who serve as a painful remembrance of the high price of freedom;
Now, therefore, be it 
Resolved by The Assembly of The State of Nevada, The Senate concurring, that The Nevada Legislature memorializes the courageous and heoric men of the USS Nevada who sacrificed their lives in defending their country at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
Presented December 7, 1991, in grateful appreciation by The Citizens of The State of Nevada."

Can you offer a place to pitch my tent? One of the largest expenses of this tour is camping and lodging fees. I usually arrive at my campsite just before dusk and depart prior to 8:30 AM. Click on the "Contact" menu option to send me a message.
