Welcome aboard USS LST 393
Walk where heroes walked, right in downtown Muskegon! History jumps out at you from every deck and every corner. Discover LST 393's outstanding wartime record as you tour a nationally renowned veterans museum with artifacts and displays honoring those who served America and fought for the freedoms we enjoy today.
USS LST 393 Veterans Museum is now closed for regularly scheduled tours. Large group tours can still be scheduled in October. The ship will reopen May 2, 2015.
USS LST 393 passed one of its most rigorous inspections recently with flying colors.
Cdr. G. Wayne Hessemer, USNR (Ret.), former captain of two LSTs, came aboard in August and looked over Muskegon’s historic World War II landing craft from top to bottom. He inspected the tank deck, the crew’s quarters, the galley, officers’ wardroom and the wheelhouse. In all, he climbed five steep navy ladders from water level to the top of the ship, the conning tower deck, his former battle station.
The 2014 USS LST 393 Veterans Job Fair May 16 was a rousing success, with more than more than 90 employers and about 400 job-seekers on board. The annual event helped find jobs for many.
