For years the Association has heard that STERETT shipmates, family and friends having in their possession STERETT memorabilia that could be on display at the future opening of the National Museum of the Surface Navy (NMSN) currently located aboard the Battleship IOWA Museum in Long Beach, California. The expected opening of this museum won’t be until the late 20s; therefore, a virtual museum was created to display these items online until such time that we can have them on display at the NMSM. Check the video below…
The items below have been provided in support of the Association’s primary objective of “preserving the history the ships historic data for future generations” (Bylaws, Article II). Thank you for your donation!!!
