The Blue Ghost

USS Lexington in Corpus Christi, Texas
Day 210 of My Italian Learning Journal*

One of the attractions in our marina is a floating museum. The USS Lexington was donated to our city as a museum in 1992. The Lexington was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2003. The ship was first launched in 1942 during World War II. It is an Essex-class aircraft carrier. The length of the Lexington is 910 feet overall – three football fields in length. During WWII the Japanese reported the ship sunk four times, thus the nickname for the Lexington became “The Blue Ghost.” The Lexington has been featured in several films. In 2007, the TV show Ghost Hunters filmed aboard the USS Lexington, looking for evidence of ghosts. (Corrections to my Italian grammar in my practice script below are welcome.)

  • La nostra città ospita la USS Lexington.
