Item Number: BB-63 USS Missouri
The fourth ship of the name, USS Missouri was the last battleship commissioned in the U.S. Navy. Missouri reached the Caroline Islands in January 1945, and the next month joined Task Force 58 for raids on the Japanese home islands. After gunfire support operations during the landings on Iwo Jima, against shore positions south of Tokyo, and against positions on Okinawa, Missouri became flagship of Admiral William F. Halsey, Jr. Following the announcement of the Japanese surrender, Missouri sailed into Tokyo Bay on August 29. There, on September 2, Allied and Japanese representatives, including General of the Army and Supreme Allied Commander in the Pacific Douglas MacArthur, Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz, Admiral Sir Bruce Fraser, RN, and Foreign Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu, signed the formal articles of surrender ending World War II.
