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, Pentagon battle over LCS future

The Future of LCS - A Good Read

Officials with the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the Navy have been battling over how many littoral combat ships to build.

Wharf Rat has endorsed a new frigate for years - I'd take these ships AND a frigate, but not these ships on their own.
