BATON ROUGE, La. (BrProud) — The USS KIDD Veterans Museum is bringing in a small-scale exhibit highlighting “Greyhound,” a movie starring Tom Hanks and USS KIDD.

The exhibit will include one of Mr. Hanks’ costumes, plus several props used in the movie. Coinciding with the films streaming on Apple TV+, exhibit is included with regular admission and on display through Labor Day.
