A retired U.S. Navy tank landing ship, the LST-325 is powered by two 900hp diesel engines, spans nearly 330 feet and weighs in at nearly 2,000 tons.
The LST-325 participated in the famed D-Day Normandy landing on June 6th, 1944, carrying nearly 60 vehicles and over 500 men into battle. Over the following year, the LST-325 made close to 50 trips across the English Channel to transport men and equipment used in the liberation of Europe. After being loaned to Greece for nearly four decades, the LST-325 was purchased and restored by retired Navy men, returning to the U.S. in 2001.

There are strong cultural and culinary links with Germany within Oklahoma. German immigrants came to the state in the 19th century, bringing their cuisine and mores. Lawton’s military connections also mean that many local residents have spent time in Germany on service on US bases where they picked up a taste for German food. Mutti’s German Restaurant was set up by Petra Edmonson, born in Germany to a German mother and American military father, to satisfy demand from locals. The food is focused on the recipes and cuisine of Bavaria so expect lots of schnitzel, bratwurst, sauerkraut, liver, currywurst, and leberkaese followed by helpings of decadent Black Forest Gateau.
