A retired Navy captain and real estate executive has joined the USS Missouri Memorial Association’s board of directors. 

Steve Colon is president of the Hawaii division of Hunt Development Group LLC, a company that has built housing for military families at the Kaneohe Bay Marine base and other installations. 

The association manages the Battleship Missouri Memorial, a museum on board the decommissioned battleship formerly known as the USS Missouri. 

The battleship is best known for hosting Japan’s surrender to World War II. Japanese and Allied leaders gathered on the ship’s decks on Sept. 2, 1945 to sign documents formally ending the war.

The ship saw action during World War II, the Korean War, and the first Gulf War. It has been at Pearl Harbor for over a decade.
