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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions.

U.S. Africa Command Home Now this is what I'm talkin' about.........bet those Harrier pilots from Kearsarge would have wanted to be in the mix! This is the first report I've seen where an A-10 Warthog was deployed to the area. One of the best aircraft in any Air Force's inventory.
