Military Locations IN Southwest Indiana
Southwest Indiana sits along the Ohio and Wabash Rivers, it has a long history of settlement intertwined with war and our military. The USS LST-325 is just an example of that.
The LST-325 is a tank and military transport ship that sits just off the banks of Evansville on the Ohio River. While LST-325 was not created in Evansville, many tank transport ships like it were. LST-325 saw use in WWII before being retired in 2001. While she is still a functional ship, she does more now as a memorial to all who served their country aboard LSTs like her. LST-325 is one of only two World War II LSTs to be preserved in the United States.
And while LST-325 is reason enough to drive down to Southwest Indiana, there are more military locations to explore here. Places like George Rogers Clark National Historical Park where Clark defeated the British held Fort Sackville and turned the tides in the Revolutionary War, and Fort Knox II where the army mustered to attack Prophetstown in Tippecanoe starting the War of 1812. There is so much more to explore in Southwest Indiana.
