Save The USS America
Petition Background (Preamble):
The USS America helped preserve the rights and freedoms all citizens of the United States enjoy. The foundation is dedicated toward preserving the USS America and its long and proud history. The foundation is actively petitioning Congressmen and Senators and the Department of Defense to donate the USS America to the foundation for preservation as a living museum. This will give all Americans the ability to visit and walk through the greatest aircraft carrier to ever sail the seas. The Foundation is actively trying to acquire a port for the use of the USS America. However, the Foundation has recently run in to some problems with acquiring the USS America itself. The DOD has decided instead of allowing the Foundation to use the ship as a living museum, to sell her for scrap.
Please join the Foundation in writing your Congressmen and Senators, letting them know that you think this beautiful ship would serve this nation better as a living museum instead of scrap metal. If the Foundation cannot acquire the ship it will still actively try and preserve as much of the ship and its history as possible. It will try to obtain at least one aircraft of each type that served on the ship and as much other unique items that were on the ship.
We are also petitioning to preserve the USS America as a Museum/Educational facility and a national landmark. The USS America is the first capital military ship to represent the United States Navy and symbolically has bared the name of our great nation and has been America's flag ship for 31 years.
