Navy ship museum navigates Ohio River

Weirton Daily Times photo by Stephen Huba The USS LST 325 passes under the Newell Toll Bridge shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday on its way to Cincinnati. The naval ship is one of only two World War II-era LST vessels - out of hundreds made - still active in the United States. LSTs (Landing Ship, Tank) were used during D-Day and other World War II battles to deploy tanks, supplies and soldiers on beaches. The LST 325, now a floating museum that is docked in Evansville, Ind., just finished a six-day visit to Pittsburgh and will be on display in Cincinnati from Saturday through Wednesday.
