Then, after a refit in 1943 spent the balance of WW2 in the Pacific including and Big Mamie's 16" guns pounded the Gilbert Islands, Marshall Islands , Truk, Iwo Jima and Okinawa before those islands were invaded in 1945. By July of that year she was off Japan with the Third Fleet.  Battleship USS Massachusetts fired the last American 16" projectile of the war.
