The Battleship Texas served sailors in WWI and WWII.

La Porte, Texas is a small town near Galveston Bay plays an important part in American History. The San Jacinto Battles Grounds is a historic attraction that kept up by the Texas Parks & Wildlife agency.

The photo of the Battleship Texas was taken during our housing hunting expeditions to Houston (believe me we had more than a few expeditions).  I added in the Mexican soldier (played so well by hubby) to portray “endurance”. Endurance is a hardcore ingredient when it comes to the making of American history.

The battleship tour will aid you in imagining the life sailors endure during the wars, especially in comparison with today’s sailors. Imagine your only source of news from home depended solely on snail mail? I am sure my iPhone toting teen would find that barbaric.
