Fall River Battleship in Need of Repairs
August 16, 2018
SouthCoast Today: The destroyer, USS Joseph P. Kennedy Jr., was built fast and used hard. Now, 73 years later, she needs a bit of a makeover.
Gov. Charlie Baker has a bill on his desk, asking him to free up money to do just that. The Legislature, before ending is session on July 31, gave the governor the authority to borrow up to $5.5 million to preserve ships at Battleship Cove [in Fall River, MA].
