It's unfortunate that we were placed in a position to need to honor a warship. But this ship, and others, are well deserving of the place of honor that hold for them. When this country was invaded by another, this ship...and many others...were manned by Americans who helped stop the enemy that was intent on crippling our country. That isn't deserving of a place of honor?
Here's a suggestion from a simpleton; go ask a veteran what they think of your suggestion to "scrap this monster". Even though you're entitled to an opinion, I'd value their opinion far more than yours.
