Preserving the USS Olympia - a Protected Cruiser

The USS Olympia, which fought in the Spanish American War of 1898 has been preserved and is a valuable piece of US maritime history. Unfortunately, Olympia needs $10-15 million in repairs to keep her a viable museum for years to come. She has not been out of water for approximately 40 years.

Now this is honoring history!!

More Naval Aviation Heritage Aircraft (But Still No Hawkeye)

Latest additions - EA-6B in colors from the Battle of the Coral Sea:
A P-3 in the colors of VP-44 PBY from Midway:
And a Growler in tri-color from Air Group 85 embarked in USS Shangri-La late in the war:
So basically, we now have one of everything in the inventory, fixed and rotary wing, carrier- and shore-based (including an S-3B) in heritage colors - some with more than one example. All that is, it seems, except an E-2C. So with that in mind, I humbly submit a proposal for an E-2C in the colors of VW-1, circa 1952-55:
