USS Pittsburgh redux

A few years ago I wrote a piece on the history of the USS Pittsburgh in Typhoon Viper in 1945.If you ever think you are having a bad day, just go read the histories of the sailors who experienced Typhoon Cobra and Typhoon Viper during World War II. 

From that I was excited to hear from a veteran who not only survived the typhoon himself, but had some pictures of note which he shared.  This particular picture may not exist in the public realm at all as far as I can tell... but thanks to Navy (and Army and Air Force) veteran K.C. Priest who sent me this photo of the bow of the USS Pittsburgh (the notional USS McKeesport), sheared off during the storm.

and if you care to see how that all came about, see the video below the pic.
