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.

USS Laffey - The Ship that Wouldn't Die - coming home to Patriots Point

The World War II destroyer Laffey is towed to its mooring at the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum in Mount Pleasant, S.C., on Wednesday. The vessel had been moved more than two years ago to a dry dock so its hull could be repaired at a cost of about $9 million.
