USS North Carolina v/s USS Kidd Friendly Fire Incident

When I was maybe three or four years old, we visited the USS North Carolina at Wilmington NC.  It was a pretty new memorial back then and didn't have the fancy show or the Kingfisher.  

I always thought I knew the ship's history fairly well but I'd never heard of this incident or the one where the NC was the recipient of friendly fire.

Nobody got hurt in this one and its a funny story with a twist at the end.  Definitely worth reading.

A bit of history that I didn't know about two ships that I've enjoyed touring. Thanks!
