I saw her in action in WW11

I remember hearing about this. I was serving in Honolulu, TH at the time.

This vessel has an unusual nickname: WisKy. On May 6, 1956, Fletcher class destroyer USS Eaton (DD-510) cut across Wisconsin's bows in a heavy fog. The resulting collision did not sink either ship, but Wisconsin was left with a somewhat toothless look. It was decided that the quickest way to repair her was to cut off the bow of her unfinished sister ship Kentucky as a replacement for Wisconsin's bow. Wisconsin was back in service by the end of June; the rest of Kentucky was eventually scrapped. Economy-minded tourists who visit Norfolk may thus see two battleships for the price of one.
