USS Wisconsin BB-64 Sailor's Mail Brest (Finistère France) Postmark Aug 10, 1954

Entering the Norfolk Naval Shipyard on June 11, Wisconsin underwent a brief overhaul and commenced a midshipman training cruise on July 12. After revisiting Greenock, Brest, and Guantánamo Bay, the ship returned to the Norfolk Naval Shipyard for repairs. Shortly thereafter, Wisconsin participated in Atlantic Fleet exercises as flagship for Commander, Second Fleet. Departing Norfolk in January 1955, Wisconsin took part in Operation Springboard, during which time she visited Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Then, upon returning to Norfolk, the battleship conducted another midshipman's cruise that summer, visiting Edinburgh; Copenhagen, Denmark; and Guantánamo Bay before returning to the United States.
