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.

I want this car!
DEARBORN, Mich. (July 20, 2011) Rear Adm. John E. Jolliffe, vice commander of U.S. Naval Forces Central Command, sits behind the wheel of the Navy Blue Angels Ford Mustang. The car will be auctioned off at the ESL International Air Show to raise funds for student aviation scholarships. Jolliffe and Sailors from local commands visited the Ford Motor Company corporate headquarters during Detroit Navy Week 2011, one of 21 Navy Weeks being held this year across the country. Navy Weeks are intended to showcase the investment Americans have made in their and increase awareness in cities that do not have a significant Navy presence.
