These ships are not combat ships but thousands of our service personnel served on them.
Many served in KOREA also!
Many were injured, killed and contain the scars of war
 in observing our combat ships attacked, damaged and sunk.

You can gather SHIP TREASURES like AO-105 crew has, but where will they be kept?
Ship REUNION MEMBERS, why not get a few $1,000 together and have a model created?
There is no question you will find a place to display it.
Perhaps all of those types at the top of this page can be put together.


SUGGESTION!
UPDATE the contract to DISMANTLE a retired ship
to include a museum quality model of that TYPE ship.
If a model already exists, those funds will be used for a model type not existing.
Each model must be placed and maintained by responsible organizations.
The monies set in the contract could be $5000.
Perhaps 2 models could be created until all WWII type ships are preserved.
See Types ABOVE!


MODELS CAN BE PRODUCED LIKE THIS BELOW   or  THESE
Patoka is 447' long  -  A suggested scale is 1:96  -  A museum quality model would be 4' - 7.9" long

The best model I am aware of is of USS Tamalpais AO-96
There are models out there, just not with individual ships show on line.
Example: U.S. Naval Academy Museum or U. S. Merchant Marine Academy Museum


WORLD WAR TWO IMAGES    or   VIDEOS   or   HISTORY   or    LEARNING SITE

But in reality, with the technologies available today, perhaps web pages like this can provide enough information
for the public to study the history of the ships that work to keep our fighting ships where they are needed.
Most data here is gathered from
 NAVSOURCE, WIKIPEDIA, or DANFS

I helped write "NAVAL OILER" in Wikipedia



"STORIES" - Stories on individual ship encounters are needed. Not  personal, lifetime stories.

Examples of these are what I have posted.
"STORIES"  "REMEMBERING"  and "VIDEOS"
