Save C.F. Adams


Back Home Next

There is an ongoing effort to save the ex-USS CHARLES F. ADAMS (DDG-2) as a museum ship. This is a monumental effort by a very dedicated group of former DDG sailors. The ADAMS is the last of its class still in the Navy's inventory.  Donations are necessary to keep this project afloat. All former DDG sailors are encouraged to visit the ACVA Web site and view each link on the Navigation Site. You will be impressed with their accomplishments to date and the huge task ahead. Read the Adams Class DDG Veterans letter on this page. You can become an ACVA Member and ACVA Plankowner by submitting the ACVA Member Application and making a $25 donation. Your donation by check can be sent via regular mail. Click on the link below, then JOIN THE ACVA  to complete the application. Your donation will be well spent to help fund this saving effort.  Visit the ACVA  link for detailed information and progress reports.
