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 Next Aircraft Carrier USS John F. Kennedy

Navy Names Next Aircraft Carrier USS John F. Kennedy

Should have been 'Enterprise'. This means a potential 10 year gap between the retirement of CVN 65, and the potential for CVN 80 - no guarentee there.

Is is possible, when they broke naming protocol for LHA 6 by naming her 'America', that they will name LHA 7 'Enterprise'?
