USS Iowa

The USS Iowa was decommissioned in 1949 after WWII along with the Wisconsin and New Jersey.  But with the start of the Korean war, the ships were reactivated as part of a Naval mobilization by President Truman.  They all went on to bombard the Korean peninsula hitting supply lines, infrastructure, and troop concentrations.
