One of the must see historic spots when you visit the state of Texas is the USS Lexington Museum. The USS Lexington exists as the oldest remaining aircraft carrier in the world while sitting off the coast of Corpus Christi.
There is so much to see on the ship and it’s hard to do it all in few hours. I’m glad that my family and I stayed there for a couple of days. Our favorite tour was the flight deck. Getting on the ship makes you appreciate what the men and women in the military sacrifice for our freedom specially during the World War II. It’s such a unique experience that I won’t soon forget.
USS Lexington (CV/CVA/CVS/CVT/AVT-16), known as “The Blue Ghost”, is one of 24 Essex-class aircraft carriers built during World War II for the United States Navy. The ship, the fifth US Navy ship to bear the name, is named in honor of theRevolutionary War Battle of Lexington. She was originally to have been namedCabot, but she was renamed while under construction to commemorateUSS Lexington (CV-2), lost in the Battle of the Coral Sea in May 1942.
