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.

The Sound of Freedom - the Blue's make history come alive each and every day.

(May 6, 2011) The U.S. Navy flight demonstration squadron, the Blue Angels, perform at the 2011 N'awlins Airshow at Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Belle Chasse during New Orleans Navy Week, one of 21 Navy Weeks planned across America in 2011. Navy Weeks are designed to show Americans the investment they have made in their Navy and increase awareness in cities that do not have a significant Navy presence.
