This LST (Landing Ship, Tank) is an amphibious vessel designed to land
battle-ready tanks, troops and supplies directly onto enemy shores. Ships
of this type proved to be enormously useful during times of war and peace
both. This particular LST was originally known as LST-325 during the Second
World War, USNS LST-325 during its arctic operations in the 1950's, and
later L-144 (A/G Syros) while it was in the service of the Greek Navy. It
was acquired by The USS LST Ship Memorial, Inc., in 2000, and caught
considerable public attention when our veteran crew brought it on a
6,500-mile journey from the Greek island of Crete to Mobile, Alabama.
