Gov. Jay Nixon welcomes crew members from the new USS Missouri to the Governor's office on April 2, 2009, to highlight the efforts of the USS Missouri Commissioning Committee to raise funds to support the ship and her crew. Also in attendance were members of the Missouri General Assembly who are serving or have served in the armed forces. On display behind the Governor is the silver punch bowl from the Battleship Missouri, the U.S. ship aboard which Japanese forces surrendered to Supreme Allied Commander Douglas MacArthur on Sept. 2, 1945.download
