USS Pennsylvania

Here's an old postcard, mailed free in 1944 from Bainbridge Maryland. The card has a U.S. Navy postmark and was mailed by A/S Herman G. Moore to his son, Hiram Moore, in Felton Delaware. Mr. Moore told his son that he was sorry that he had missed his birthday and asked him to be a good little man.

The wartime postcard features the big guns of the Flagship Pennsylvania.

The U.S. Navy Training Center at Bainbridge was established in 1942 to train Navy recruits during World War II. To learn more about the center, visit the USNTC Bainbridge Association.
