We are celebrating the 75th Anniversary of two great World War II museum ships – the USS Pampanito, and the SS Jeremiah O’Brien! Let us take you back to the past, a USO party in 1943. You’ll see singers and swing dancers, period attire and contests: kissing and costume! Heavy hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served throughout the evening, topped off with a big birthday cake! Join us in honoring the legacy of these two maritime veterans and the greatest generation.

USS Potomac, formerly USCGC Electra, was Franklin Delano Roosevelt's presidential yacht from 1936 until his death in 1945. In January 2016 she was one of the last two existing presidential yachts. She is now preserved in Oakland, California, as a National Historic Landmark and the only presidential yacht open to the public.
