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.

Navy Names Littoral Combat Ships Jackson and Montgomery

Navy Names Littoral Combat Ships Jackson and Montgomery

Oops............If you note in this story 'Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus announced today that the next two Freedom-class littorial combat ships (LCS) to be built in Alabama will be named the USS Jackson and the USS Montgomery.'

Anyone, anyone can pick out the error in that article?.........That's right - it's the Independence-class LCS that is built in Alabama.
