The Historic Naval Ships Association (HNSA) wishes to express its appreciation to Richard S. Pekelney as the HNSA Web Master and Board Member and to Nancy Lakins-Board for their preparation of this publication. Thanks are also due to our Fleet and Associate Members who provided material and photographs.

Others directly responsible for the success of the Association are the directors and staff members of our museums and memorials who give of their precious time to serve as Association officers, directors and committee chairs. The splendid efforts of our volunteers are also invaluable in enabling the Association to achieve its objectives. They are led by Executive Secretary James W. Cheevers, Senior Curator and Associate Director of the United States Naval Academy Museum; and again, our Web master Richard S. Pekelney. To all of these dedicated individuals, my sincere thanks for your tremendous support.
