But don’t take our word for it. Check out what donors are saying on our GoFundMe page:
"I sailed on the SSUS in summer of '67 to Europe. I was only 10 at the time. It was a great experience. I would love to see the ship restored." --Chris Parker ($25)
"I had the honor of accompanying Commodore Alexanderson when he returned to his alma mater, New York Maritime College, in the fall of 2002. As a young Cadet, I was in awe as I listened to the Commodore tell stories of what it was like to command the most impressive ship ever built. We walked through the Maritime Industry Museum on campus, and his eyes lit up as he saw some of his old items from the ship that he had donated to the school. I fell in love with the SS United States in college, and can't wait for the day when future generations can go aboard and enjoy the history she has to offer!" --Brian Abbott ($100)
"I know sometimes it seems impossible but together we can save the SS United States please help in any way you can or at least spread the word. I love this ship and would love to see it saved in any way possible." --Michael McDaniel $50
