It has been said by every generation that you learn by doing.  Hands-on education is the key-word in today's university classrooms where the teachers of tomorrow are being trained.  And in teaching a course on World War II history and the United States' island-hopping campaign across the Pacific, or the Battle of the Atlantic where the threat of German U-boats loomed constantly, what better way to apply a hands-on approach than to take a field trip to the USS KIDD, a vessel which actually participated in those events?  Let your students see where a Japanese kamikaze pilot crashed his plane into the ship, the conditions that their grandfathers lived in, and the dangers a U-boat posed to a ship with a hull only three-eighths of an inch think.
