USS St. Louis: Centuries of Service on October 3
Email share

USS St. Louis: Centuries of Service recounts the proud lineage of ships named USS St. Louis in the United States military since the founding of our country, but it’s the one currently out at sea that is instilling a big wave of civic pride. “It’s connecting a landlocked city to a navy ship and the crew that sails upon her,” says Nine PBS’s Kara Vaninger, producer and writer.

The Nine PBS USS St. Louis: Centuries of Service documentary, a coproduction with the Missouri History Museum, recounts each ship’s rich and surprising history and follows the current USS St. Louis LCS-19 as she and her crew experience the naval traditions and milestones that take a ship from concept to active service in the U.S. Navy.

Premieres Monday, September 27, 7 pm on Nine PBS and livestream
Encore Broadcasts on September 29, 9 pm, and October 3, 9:30 am.
