      The Navy League doesn't take a position on historic museum ships but members throughout the USA and a multiple of councils are involved in various ways.
       
      This event in Sacramento at the California State Military Museum involves Sacramento Council members including Museum Director and Curator Dan Sebby, BGen Jack Hagan, CMR (Ret.) and Phelps Hobart. The Sacramento Council over the years has hosted an USS IOWA event and contributed financially. It has also given financial support to the Museum.
       
      In any case, if you can, please attend and help us pass the word on this special event December 1st.
