Katie Lawrence is a Southeast Texas native who graduated 18th in her high school class with a GPA of 4.25. She attended college in the Houston area and began writing for OnlyInYourState in 2015.
Today, Katie writes, edits, and performs several other tasks for OnlyInYourState and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
Texas has a tremendous amount of war history, but sadly a lot of it is long forgotten by now. Sure, we have anecdotes passed down from family members who served, but some details are bound to get lost through oral transmission. Luckily, one of the most important assets of our country during both major wars is still intact and sits right here in the Houston Ship Channel for visitors to enjoy. Touring Battleship Texas will take you on a journey back to some of the hardest times our world has ever faced, and consequently, your pride for America and our great state of Texas will soar.
