We have been advised by our supplier of price increases. The store prices will be adjusted shortly. If you already have an order in, you will receive it at the price that was in effect when you ordered it.

New Gallery Posted

The gallery has finally been integrated into the main website rather than a separate site. The main advantage is that the comment spammers won’t be able to post to it. I still have a few albums to move over but all of the photos posted by shipmates have been transferred. I hope to finish in a week or two. You can get to the new gallery thru the Memorabilia page or by clicking on this link.

Do to a error on my part, the website was pretty much trashed last week. I’ve managed to rebuild it from backups and everything appears to be in order. If you find any problems, please let me know. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Additional Mesothelioma Information

From Doug Karr, Veteran Advocate & Outreach Coordinator of the Mesothelioma & Asbestos Awareness Center

“My name is Doug, and I represent the Mesothelioma and Asbestos Awareness Center, a leading Internet resource for information about mesothelioma, a fatal form of cancer. I am also a veteran of the United States Navy, and a proud advocate for veterans. The MAA Center has been recognized by the Health on the Net Foundation as a reliable & trustworthy source of medical information on the web and is approved by Disability.gov as an excellent resource for veterans and all members of the military community.

As you may know, mesothelioma cancer is caused by previous exposure to asbestos. Countless veterans were exposed to asbestos while aboard naval ships, while repairing military vehicles and aircraft, and while residing in aging military housing. Troops currently serving in Iraq are also at risk of asbestos exposure, making this a very timely health and safety issue for veterans and all members of the military community. In addition to featuring information about asbestos exposure and the health consequences for veterans, we also provide content on a number of other veteran issues, including PTSD, addiction, and more. ”

The website is located at www.maacenter.org. There is a permanent link to it on our Links page.
