BAM Cúitlahuac, the former USS John Rodgers, retired from Mexican service, with Mexican sailors and her American contingent from Beauchamp Tower Corporation, pose to recreate the WWII crew picture.  The BT Corporation is there to rig the Cuitlahuac for tow back to the United States where she will become a museum that will chronicle her WWII service with the United States Navy and her 30 years of subsequent service with the Mexican Navy.
