NYS?? But Thomas, you're in Virginia. Well I'm originally from the fine state of New York. I specifically hail from the tourist city of Saratoga Springs. The Albany-Saratoga Sub Vets Memorial Foundation, Inc is a Not-For-Profit Corporation and Museum and a 501(3)c tax-exempt organization. The Foundation has received a provisional Charter from the NYS Education Department as a Foundation and Museum. They request support of the Submarine Veterans in the Albany, NY Capital district to help build a Memorial and Museum in tribute to New York State Submariners. This will benefit the purchasing of a museum site, construction of a building and a memorial site for all NYS submariners who have died and the collection of museum artifacts and for documents that will be available for research. The museum, memorial and the research documents will be available to the public. You can help by becoming part of the worthy effort.
Their membership includes men who have served on submarines from WWII to the present. Associate membership includes any person who has served the submarine force in construction, training, operations or in any capacity, which assisted the submarine force. They are dedicated to ensuring that this vital force is remembered.
I'll probably write about this as an ongoing effort. This is a worthy cause to recognize these men for their efforts to protect our country. My father was a navy man and is part of this effort. Just because you're not in New York, doesn't mean that you cannot support the cause. Thank you for your consideration.
