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.

Death Never Takes A Holiday - the loss of Columbia 10 years later

A First Hand View of the loss of Columbia - Death Never Takes a Holiday

From one who was there - read this, some hard truths.

I was there - I was in my family room, turned on the TV, and waited for the landing of Columbia.

When it didn't land on time, we knew.  We didn't want to believe, but we knew, the announcers, staff - no one wanted to admit it.  I was in my family room - and I knew.
