The ocean liner Queen Mary I is permanently moored in Long Beach CA. It now serves as a hotel, restaurant, historic museum, meeting destination and tourist attraction. During WWII, the Queen took more than a million GIs to the European battles and back home again. The twin 40mm anti-aircraft guns, still stationed on the liner's deck, were protection from German bombers. For more information, go to www.queenmary.com
