Contribute to a Museum.

ECSAA now has its own museums aboard two aircraft carriers which are now floating museums...USS Lexington and USS Hornet.  These ships have set aside compartments in which only CVE displays and memorabilia will be exhibited. Our "museums" on these ships will be visited by millions of people each year, and it is up to us to send these museums our "stuff" to display.

Clean out your attic and garage and shoe boxes. Open those musty old boxes where you have stored your Navy "stuff" and send it to one of these ships for display. Your name will be posted as a contributor to the museum. Do it now!
