Brunswick Naval Museum and Memorial Gardens
Friendship and Memorial Gardens Reopen

http://www.brunswicknavalmuseum.org/

Our purposes are to maintain a memorial to those service members
who gave their lives in service to their country; and to promote a
better understanding and appreciation of the history of naval airborne patrol, especially the history of NASB and naval units based in Maine.  To that end we will maintain the  memorial and friendship gardens, establish and maintain museum facilities, collect and preserve artifacts, photographs, documents and other materials pertaining to that history, and among other things, mount ongoing educational activities including exhibits, research, publications, seminars, workshops, lectures and outreach programming.  Since its inception, NASB has been a vital
part of the Brunswick Community and vice versa.  This unique and
vital heritage needs to be preserved so that future generations will
obtain a better understanding of that heritage.

Please remit your contribution to:
            Brunswick Naval Museum and Memorial Gardens
            PO Box 943
