USS Iowa More Than Meeting Place for Hawkeye Fans
SAN PEDRO, Calif. -- Officials say they expect thousands of Iowa Hawkeye fans to board the USS Iowa on Thursday for a Hawkeye-centered pep rally. David Way, curator of the battleship, said that with a valid ID, Iowans can visit the USS Iowa all week long, thanks to a $3 million grant from the state of Iowa. Way said the grant was to help refurbish the ship to allow it to open for the public.
