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.

We have the cleanest carriers in the world! At least off the coast of Japan::))

First the GW CVN 73, and now Reagan CVN 76 - seriously, are they taking an abundance of caution in cleaning off potential radioactive particles?  I'm thinking they want the families of the crew to see these photo's (US Navy photo)
