    USS Wisconsin (BB-64)

    This History Salvaged USS Wisconsin pen is crafted from part of the Teak Deck Witness Wood®, removed during restoration, from one of the last battleships the US ever built. The USS Wisconsin saw combat in World War II, the Korean War, and the Gulf War.

    Nicknamed "The Wisky," the Wisconsin provided cover for the invasion of Iwo Jima, was struck by a 155 mm shell during the Korean War, and launched eight of the 47 Tomahawk cruise missiles in the opening salvo of the Persian Gulf War.

    After being commissioned and decommissioned three times, the Wisconsin was finally put to rest in 1991 and is now on permanent display at the Nauticus museum in Norfolk, Virginia.

    Iowa-class battleship, USS Wisconsin (BB-64) was built at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, Pennsylvania, and was commissioned in April 1944. Reaching the Pacific to serve in combat, she served at the Philippines, Iwo JimaOkinawa, and the final bombardments of the Japanese homeland. After the war, “Wisky” was briefly decommissioned only to be reactivated for the Korean War, serving until 1958 and then after three decades in "moth balls", she was re-commissioned in 1988 and participated in the Persian Gulf War.
