It's not about the ship.
It's about the people who served on board, the job they did, they had to do.
It's about keeping it real.
If we don't tell their story, and the story of this ship - the impact, both positive and negative, may be lost on future generations. You know what they say about history, forget it and you're bound to repeat it.
In a growing "virtual" world - this ship is a stark, and tangible, reminder of what nations, and man kind, will do to each other.
The people who manned the guns didn't want to kill. They wanted to protect their country, stay afloat, and get themselves and their shipmates home alive.
