The USS LST (Landing-Ship-Tank) 325, which saw extensive service in the European Theater of World War II including on D-Day, will be available for public tours in Pittsburgh Sept. 2 through 8, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This last operational LST will be docked on the North Shore of the Ohio River, near the Pittsburgh Steelers' Heinz Field and just up-river from the World War II-era USS Requin Submarine, which was brought to Pittsburgh 25 years ago this month by Pittsburgh's original Buhl Planetarium and Institute of Popular Science and is now operated by The Carnegie Science Center. Although this particular LST was built in Philadelphia, many LSTs were constructed in the Pittsburgh region.
