LST-325 getting a new home?

Posted: Updated:

LST-325 board members told 14 News that city officials in Peoria, IL would like the World War II ship to move there.

Board members will be in Peoria on Saturday to do some 'fact finding'.

Board rules require them to at least check out interested cities every 10 years.

Plans are in the works for events during the 2014 Summer season in Evansville. On June 5, 6, and 7th, there will be a 70th anniversary commemoration of D-Day.

LST-325 is the only remaining operational LST out of 229 that took part in the Normandy invasion.
