The Battleship Texas is a historical relic that has taught generations of Americans Naval history. She is the only existing Dreadnaught Class battleship remaining on the planet. She Sortied in the North Sea during WWI, she escorted convoys across the Atlantic in WWII, as well as supporting the landings in North Africa, Normandy, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa. She was commissioned in March of 1914 and helped the United States claim dominance on the high seas. In December of 1976 she was designated a Historical Landmark and she sits in a harbor in LaPorte, TX. She is sick has sustained heavy damage over the years and needs a protective dry dock so she can be preserved for future generations to learn from and enjoy.

We the undersigned request that President Donald Trump direct the Secretary of the Interior to make funding available for such a dry dock and for necessary repairs to be made. We can't let this important piece of American history be neglected any longer.
