Shipbuilding in New Orleans, WWII

New Orleans was a center for shipbuilding - the most famous being the Higgins LCVP  - the boat that made D-Day possible and the reason the National WWII Museum is here.  Among the ship builders who manufactured U.S. military ships was the Delta Shipbuilders - they were located in the Industrial Canal.  They published a newsletter and I found a copy of one in an antique store a few months ago.
I thought I would post it here and remind the world that New Orleans plays a key role in the defense of our nation.  (Click on the image.)
