Donations to the Destroyer History Foundation will be gratefully received and used to support the purpose of the foundation.

The purpose of the Destroyer History Foundation is to perpetuate interest in US Navy destroyer history by preserving and making accessible records, accounts, images and other artifacts that might otherwise be lost when US Navy destroyer veterans pass on. It is an outgrowth of this web site, an on-line collection prepared in collaboration with shipmates, organizations, active duty naval officers and others. Some items too large to present on the web such as the complete Fletcher-class engineering drawings from Bath Iron Works are available on disk.

The list of contributors to this effort is long. Thank you all for sharing and for your kindnesses along the way.
