World of Warships Selection 1:
USS Bainbridge (DDG-96) is an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer in the United States Navy. She is the fifth ship to carry that name, and the 46th destroyer of a planned 75-ship class. Bainbridge is named in honor of Commodore William Bainbridge, who as commander of the frigate USS Constitution distinguished himself in the War of 1812 when he and his crew captured HMS Java, a 38-gun fifth-rate frigate of the Royal Navy.

USNTC Bainbridge Museum is saddened to hear of the passing of the PDH museum President George Maldeis. It’s board of directors and faithful patrons extended our deepest condolences to the Maldeis family, our thoughts and prayers are with them during this time. George will be greatly missed by all.

Heaven gained an angel today.

Our President, George Maldeis, passed onto eternal life today.
He was our rock, our energy boost, our leader and our friend. His involvement with the Port Deposit Heritage Corporation over the years has informed and ignited a passion in so many. His dedication to the museum touched hundreds whether it be through his organization of events, overseeing of finances, or even the countless hours spent on the weekends ensuring the artifacts and resources were available to all.

He never let anyone leave without making them smile and feeling good about one's self. His energy was contagious and he never put himself above others. The power he had to lift your spirits and include you was always prevalent. George only had the utmost respect for his fellow humans.

He loved history, the PDHC, the museum, his patients, and everybody. He gave selflessly from his heart until his heart just couldn't keep up with him.

George, we love you and we will miss you. Thank you for everything.

Winds of Change:
Quite often when people are at sea, they experience changing in the winds. Throughout 2020 we have seen the same in society and within the museum. We have done and will continue to do our best in keeping the legacy of the Bainbridge Base alive and well for future generations, but as we do the seas may be choppy. As we welcome a new leadership change, we continue to forge ahead in our continued mission of preservation of the past while forging our newfound future. The museum would like to thank everyone for their continued support and patronage through the changes and choppy seas. Bainbridge Day 2020 was the best yet, so much so that our event page is still live... If you missed us this year no worries. Check it out. We thank everyone for your resilience and look forward to a great future.. full steam ahead.

Just finished my virtual attendance at Bainbridge Day 2020. Bainbridge NTC, NRMC, was my first job as a Federal Civilian Employee.
Since I moved back to Texas in 2017 I have been unable to attend your events. I am looking forward to sharing virtually with you all. Although I did not serve, My mother, Claire Harriet Cottini, was the visiting nurse for the Navy Relief Society for a number of years at Bainbridge and both she and my father served in the Navy.
I have been to your wonderful museum. I am a 1968 WAVE who spent 10 weeks there. i belong to another WAVE group and would like to find a way to get a few of these.
Thanks for a great and enjoyable day Bainbridge Museum Association.
