Comments: PLACED IN REDUCED COMMISSIONING ON 1/1/1931 FOR CONVERSION TO A GUNNERY TRAINING SHIP AT THE NORFOLK NAVY YARD. AFTER PEARL HARBOR IT WAS SERIOUSLY CONSIDERED TO REMILITARIZE THE SHIP AND CONVERT HER BACK TO A FULL BATTLESHIP, BUT THE IDEA WAS DROPPED DUE TO THE COST. SHE WAS SOLD TO LIPSETT INC., NEW YORK, NY FOR SCRAPPING ON 10/31/1947 AND REMOVED FROM NAVY CUSTODY ON 12/11/1947.
