April 29, 2017, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM @ SS McKeesport Memorial
Each year on this day, veterans, dignitaries and community residents gather at McKees Point – the Marina, or the Palisades -- to remember the SS McKeesport.
Attendees gather not only to mourn the loss of this ship, as it sank on April 29, 1943, but also to remember its service to this great nation. After transporting supplies to England on one final voyage, the SS McKeesport sank in the North Atlantic Ocean after being torpedoed by a German U-boat.
