It saddens me to know that this magnificent ship with so much history
for our state of Florida
, and in particular Key West
, may end up scrapped or in a foreign port!
From defending our shores during WWII to laying communication cables
to showing students and tourist the majesty of our little island she has served Key West
and the U.S well.
If you have ever sailed on her or just have a love for maritime history
check out this link and maybe make a donation to save this flagship.
