You Might Be Using Part of a Battleship!

Ever wondered what happens to enormous battleships once they been decommissioned? Better yet, would you believe me if I told you that pack of shaving razors you picked up from your local drug store was once a piece of the USS Enterprise?

Don’t get me wrong: the U.S. Navy does not sell directly to razor companies.  What happens is, decommissioned ships are sold to scrappers, who do the deed and sell their products to the manufacturer.

To learn more about the process, check out our video. For more videos, follow this link to VA’s YouTube page.
