The massive USS Missouri gun barrel rests on a rail car on a spur in Georgetown near South Railroad Avenue and the Georgetown Post Office.

After months of planning, the USS Missouri gun barrel has arrived in Sussex County on its way to Fort Miles in Cape Henlopen State Park. Sussex County plans a ceremony to welcome the gun and honor veterans from 2 to 4 p.m. Monday, April 16, on The Circle and at the gun barrel site in Georgetown.
