U.S. war ship docked in Stamford waters

(08/01/03) STAMFORD - The USS Winston S. Churchill is anchored off the coast of Stamford, and will remain there for the next few days. The ship is docked in Connecticut waters because it was adopted by the city of Stamford back in 2001 and is on a goodwill tour.

It left Boston last week and if you'd like to take a closer look for yourself, you'll be required to stay 500 yards away for security reasons. The general public is not allowed onboard, but News 12 Connecticut was given a quick 30-minute tour Friday afternoon.

During its recent tour of the Mideast, the ship's Tomahawk missiles, some launched from the vertical launchers, played a huge part in America's shock and awe campaign over Baghdad.
