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.

NORFOLK--There's word Thursday that the USS Bataan, homeported in Norfolk,  will head out on deployment later this month.
Navy officials tell that  the Bataan is surging to replace the Kearsarge, as part of a contingency operation.
The surge is designed to give the president flexibility regarding the recent uprising in Northern Africa and in the Middle East.
There's no word on the exact time of the deployment or for how long it will last.
