|Kayre Morrison and Damon Kirsche|
aboard USS Iowa (BB-61)
This Fourth of July, I join Dean Mora and His Orchestra, Kayre Morrison and the Lindy Sisters aboard the USS Iowa, the "Battleship of Presidents." The battleship opens as a naval museum to the public this month and today's festivities will include speeches from the LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin, U.S. Rep. Janice Hahn, Franklin Delano Roosevelt's great granddaughter Julianna Roosevelt and more than 1,000 U.S. veterans.
