Many of you know of the effort to save the USS Gage, the last of original Attack Transport.
This class of the famed Liberty ships was involved in WW II, Korea, and Viet Nam as well as many rescue efforts over the years.
This ship is an extremely important piece of history and the government intends to sink it for target practice next year.
Please, if you haven't already, take a moment and go to the following site and sign the online petition to save this vital historical ship. It doesn't cost anything, and gives our children the opportunity to see and feel what our fathers felt and fought for.
Thank you for your time Bill Carney
