U.S.S. KIDD Veterans Museum

Walk the Decks Where Men and Women Made the History That You and I Can Only Read About

Located in the heart of scenic downtown Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the Fletcher-class destroyer USS KIDD (DD-661) is the centerpiece of a memorial which serves to honor the men and women of our American armed forces. Upon your visit, you will take a step back in time and learn about their sacrifices for the freedoms we enjoy today. We encourage you to come to Baton Rouge and walk the decks of the KIDD in person. See the aircraft that soared through the skies of Southeast Asia during two eras of conflict. Examine the dented helmet of an infantryman who stormed the beaches of Normandy. Touch the names of the fallen Americans whose names are carved into the black granite walls of the Louisiana Memorial Plaza. We promise you: you won't be the same afterward.
