USS Lexington
The ship my Papa built, the USS Lexington

My daughter and I took the boys and Steve to the ship my grandfather helped build.  My Papa was a ship builder back in Quincy, MA as a young man.  He served in the U.S. Navy, and he worked into the ship yard.

I cannot remember if it was the front or the back of the boat, but there is a piece of metal that holds my grandfather and a co-workers name.  They etched their names on the metal, and then riveted it to the ship.
