Karen and Lee Duquette's FLASHBACK


Several USS Naval Ships
- Museum Ships

In 1975 - Karen and Lee Duquette with their children, walked past USS Joseph P. Kennedy, JR (DD-850) to go on board the USS Massachusetts

Lee, Brian and Renee Duquette

The USS Massachusetts went to several wars and when she returned to the United States, she was decommissioned and assigned to the Atlantic Reserve Fleet, Norfolk in 1947. She remained out of service until 1962, when she was stricken from the Naval Vessel Register. Three years later, she was transferred to the Massachusetts Memorial Committee and preserved as a "museum ship" at Battleship Cove in Fall River, Massachusetts. Some material was removed in the 1980s to reactivate the Iowa-class battleships, but the ship otherwise remains in her wartime configuration. For more information on this ship, go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Massachusetts_(BB-59)
