  • Naval Historical Foundation
    Since 1926 the Naval Historical Foundation’s principal purpose has been to educate Americans about the history and importance of American sea power, and the contribution and sacrifices United States Navy sailors have made while protecting our freedom and preserving democracy in peace and war. The Foundation acquires artifacts and historical documents on behalf of the Navy, and, in cooperation with museums, archives, and libraries, makes these important historic materials available for public exhibit or scholarly study. The Foundation, alone and in cooperation with the United States Navy, with civilian institutions and corporations, and with private citizens, commemorates important naval events in American history, thus ensuring that these remain in the American memory, that their importance is understood, and that those who served in them continue to be recognized.

  • NavSource Naval History

The simple goal of NavSource Naval History is the preservation of naval history, in the form of images and text, also to help former shipmates find each other by providing reunion and contact information.
