She was the first of two ships of her class to be completed, followed only by Guam; four other ships were ordered but were not completed before the end of the war. Alaska was the third vessel of the US Navy to be named after what was then the territory of Alaska. She was laid down on 17 December 1941, ten days after the outbreak of war, was launched in August 1943 by the New York Shipbuilding Corporation, in Camden, New Jersey, and was commissioned in June 1944. She was armed with a main battery of nine 12 in (300 mm) guns in three triple turrets and had a top speed of 33 kn (61 km/h; 38 mph). Due to being commissioned late in the war, Alaska saw relatively limited service. She participated in operations off Iwo Jima and Okinawa in February–July 1945, including providing anti-aircraft defense for a carrier task force and conducting limited shore bombardment operations. She shot down several Japanese aircraft off Okinawa, including a possible Ohka piloted rocket-bomb. In July–August 1945 she participated in sweeps for Japanese shipping in the East China and Yellow Seas. After the end of the war, she assisted in the occupation of Korea and transported a contingent of US Army troops back to the United States. She was decommissioned in February 1947 and placed in reserve, where she remained until she was stricken in 1960 and sold for scrapping the following year. Don't mess up this ship with the others namesakes: USS Alaska (1868), a wooden-hulled screw sloop-of-war in commission from 1869 to 1883 that saw numerous small actions [http://bit.ly/1e5NDfx]USS Alaska (ID-3035), a steam trawler chartered to serve as a minesweeper during World War I, in commission from 1918 to 1919 [http://bit.ly/1cBr6Ei]USS Alaska (SSBN-732), an Ohio class ballistic missile submarine commissioned in 1986 and currently in service [http://bit.ly/1jOw0AX] More reading here
