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.

Never gets old looking at this formation
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (July 16, 2011) The U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, set up to perform the Diamond Aileron Roll at the ESL International Air Show during Rochester Navy Week. Navy Weeks are intended to show the investment Americans have made in their Navy as a Global Force for Good and increase awareness in cities that do not have a significant Navy presence.
