These are photographs of a model of the USS Des Moines, CA 134, which I built for my father this past year. Dad is a plank owner from the Des Moines and is very proud of his time in the U.S. Navy. Mr. Sheridan’s photographs of the Des Moines sister ship, the USS Salem, CA 139, were very useful in my construction of this model.
