New on 500px : The Blue Ghost, USS Lexington by michaelriehl88 by michaelriehl88

This is a picture taken for memorial day in remembrance of all the troops. This is the USS Lexington aka The Blue Ghost. It was one of the most decorated ships in all WW2, and set more records than any other Essex Class carrier in the history of naval aviation. It got its nickname from Tokyo Rose because the Japanese had reported it destroyed at least 4 times.
