Transcript 4 "n" A Mighty Tough Lady Photos by Allen Manning. Up and down her decks we ran, swinging the guns to meet real and imaginary foes, we all love her and all have fond memories of her. The "her" I speak of is the battleship U.S.S. Texas, the "we" pertains to all those who have had the pleasure of either serving on her during her commision or who have made her a Sunday afternoon outing. She, The Mighty "T," sailed for Galveston for the first time in 40 years. Leaving behind her muddy berth near the San Jacinto monument with the aid of tugboats, she made her way down the Houston Ship Channel to the Todd Dock yards where she was interned for drydock and complete overhaul. It took nearly seven hours to extract her massive 27,000 ton hull from the aged berth, but for many the nail-biting event was worth the effort. Years prior to the trip, grade school students had begun raising money for the ship's restoration, a Navy grant was added to the program along with hundreds of hours of volunteer labor and donated equipment. E-35, her navy registration number, had seen action in both world wars and had been dubbed the lucky lady since her only casualty occurred when a shell pierced into the superstructure but didn't explode. The Texas will return to a completely referbished berth, where children will once again run up and down her decks adjusting her antiaircraft guns and old sailors will recall days long gone. ► Allen Manning 278 ■ Issues
