• 15 Mar 1952: The Wisconsin receives her first direct
hit in her history when one of four shells from a North
Korean 152mm gun battery struck the shield of a
starboard 40mm mount.
Subsequently, the Wisconsin destroyed the battery
with
a full 16in salvo before continuing her mission.
After destroying the artillery battery with her big guns,
the Wisconsin received a message from one of her
escorts, USS Buck (DD-761). The message read
simply "Temper, temper".
