President Franklin D. Roosevelt enters during Presidents Day ceremonies aboard the U.S.S. Iowa in San Pedro.
The Battleship Iowa Museum on Monday celebrated Presidents Day and the ship's 73rd birthday. Impersonators of President Roosevelt and Gen. Douglas MacArthur and several military reenactors added a World War II atmosphere to the event.
The U.S.S. Iowa was commissioned on Feb. 22, 1943. Three Presidents - Franklin D. Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush - have been hosted aboard the battleship. FDR sailed to the Tehran, Iran, conference in 1943 aboard the Iowa.
