USS Franklin: Honor RestoredHistory|2011|54:05|PG
The USS Franklin (CV-13). The men in the American Pacific fleet knew her as 'Big Ben'. She is known throughout history as 'The Ship That Wouldn't Die'. Even now, more than six decades after the end of hostilities in World War II, the very name Franklin spawns a tidal wave of emotion for her crew and thousands of men in the fleet caught up in what the name represents.
