“There were some real characters on the Oklahoma. Some of them like to go into town and have a good time, climb up on the gangway on the way back. Maybe two or three of the topside sailors would take them down put them in their bunks.”
-Albert Ellis USS Oklahoma
“When I first saw the Oklahoma, I thought it was the biggest ship I had ever seen. In fact, I had never seen a ship until I got to San Diego. I saw her and I was kind of proud of her. I wasn’t versed in naval history, so I didn’t know that she was probable one of the oldest ships in the navy. I thought she was queen of the sea.”
-George Delong USS Oklahoma
