This year we participated in Museumships Bravo Zulu challenge coin and awarded our beloved volunteer, Annette "Netter" Lancaster. A big BRAVO ZULU to Netter!

"Annette “Netter” Lancaster is a longtime volunteer of the USS Missouri Memorial Association, Inc. Her main work involves preservation and restoration of the Missouri’s historic teak decks. She has pulled it up, replaced it, sanded it, buffed it, drilled it, and even burned it! “Netter” is the go-to person for teak information.

Saturdays are not Saturdays without “Netter” being on board. She holds the record for drilling and replacing plugs on the newly installed teak and states that one of the best presents she ever received was a replacement Makita sander.

Her craftsmanship is evident in refurbishing the old teak deck – carefully developing them into teak plaques and other keepsake items. And last, but not least; she keeps the Volunteer Department areas clean and in good order.

Perhaps her biggest takeaway from her time volunteering on board was meeting her husband and later hosting their wedding reception on the ship’s fantail.

Dedication is dedication and then there is Annette “Netter” Lancaster."

We sincerely thank you for your continued volunteerism in keeping the Battleship Missouri in ship shape, WE LOVE YOU NETTER! - USS Missouri Memorial Association

Her Story.

Since opening in January 1999, the Battleship Missouri Memorial has attracted more than 9-million visitors from around the world with a fascinating tour experience showcasing the USS Missouri’s unique place in history. Located a mere ship’s length from the USS Arizona Memorial, the Mighty Mo completes a historical visitor experience that begins with the “day of infamy” and sinking of the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, and ends with Japan’s formal surrender aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay on September 2, 1945.

The USS Missouri had an astounding career over five decades and three wars – World War II, the Korean War, and Desert Storm – after which it was decommissioned and donated to the USS Missouri Memorial Association, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The Association operates the Battleship Missouri Memorial as a historic attraction and oversees her care and preservation with the support of visitors, memberships, grants, and donations.

The Battleship Missouri Memorial is temporarily closed until further notice. For information or reservations, call 808-455-1600 or visit ussmissouri.org

I had the honor to be friends with Bevan Travis who was at the Helm that fateful day in 1950. I met him at the FRA that I joined and served as treasure for 15 years, we became close throughout those years until he passed from Mesothelioma. Some may remember the documentary he did on one of the networks years back.. He wrote me a note and signed the Missouri hardback book.. He is one of my hero's! He often spoke of having coffee with President Truman up on the bridge..
