Michael Thorp started this petition to State Representative Mary Ann Perez and

The reason why I have started this petition is because it is a very important part of not only history but Texas history as well that has been passed down from generation to generation. On August 25, 2019 she will be taken out of state for repairs (they do not know the history behind the USS Texas). As a fellow Texan, you should really care about our history and pass it down to your kids and even your kid's kids and so on. The repairs need and MUST BE done here in Texas because of our rich history and not in a different state because they don't really know the true history behind it.

On March 12, 1914 the U.S. Navy commissioned USS Texas. She was the most powerful weapon in the world. She was a complex product of an industrial nation emerging as a force in global events. In 1916, USS Texas became the first U.S. battleship to mount anti-aircraft guns. Her berth was in 2014 at the San Jacinto Battleground, near Houston. She was wearing Measure 21 camouflage as she did in 1945. USS Texas (BB-35), the second ship of the United States Navy named in honor of the U.S. state of Texas. 

So yes our history needs to be saved for 100s more generations can see, learn, teach, and tell about her and the rich history that she has.
