MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Veterans Museum hosted a celebration Tuesday recognizing the 25th anniversary of the recommissioning of the U.S.S. Wisconsin.
"I wanted to get away from Wisconsin and get out and see the world. Finished boot camp on the cold and windy Great Lakes. Then we got our orders, I'm going to the U.S.S. Wisconsin. So I couldn't seem to escape," said Dave Patrykus, a member of the U.S.S. Wisconsin Association.
Members of the U.S.S. Wisconsin Association received a certificate of recognition from the state at the celebration. The group holds reunions every two years. Click here for more information.
The U.S.S Wisconsin is now a museum ship, docked in Norfolk, Virginia.
