Preserving a piece of US Maritime History - invaluable

The USS Olympia is a cruiser that fought in the Spanish American War in 1898 and has been preserved in Philadelphia. She's a one of a kind ship, a national historic monument, and in danger. She needs approximately $10-15 million in repairs to keep her a viable museum for years to come. If you have the resources, or connections to those resources, please consider helping. (full disclosure - there is no financial benefit to me to ask the question - we need to save this ship for posterity). Please contact me at 612-599-1935 or if you have additional questions.

Back in the day - destroyers would trade pilots for ice cream with a carrier! (CVN 72 Tiger Cruise US Navy Photo)

 Of course, the pilots would have to leave a perfectly good aircraft before the destroyers could nab them!
Welcome back CVN 72!!  Well Done.
