CAPE CHARLES, Va. (AP - The Eastern Shore of Virginia National Wildlife Refuge is celebrating its newest addition.
The 1,123-acre refuge is now home to a historic World War II gun barrel from the USS Missouri. The 120 ton, 68-foot gun barrel was on board at the time of the Japanese surrender on Sept. 2, 1945.
The barrel adds more military history to the refuge that was transferred from the Air Force to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 1984.
The area first known as Fort John Custis encouraged military use because of its location at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay.
