<p>Sound-powered telephone</p>
Caption: Sound-powered telephones allowed Sailors to talk without external power. The headsets were critical for shipboard communication. (On loan from Naval History and Heritage Command)

<p>Shell fragment USS St. Paul</p>
Caption: Although naval gunnery provided the American and allied forces with a powerful weapon with a high rate of fire, accidents sometimes occurred. In one case, USS St. Paul (CA 73) fired an 8-inch shell that accidentally exploded above a Republic of Korea division command post in 1967. This shell is from that accident. (On loan from Tony D’Angelo)
