The S.S. Lane Victory is owned and operated by the United States Merchant Marine Veterans of World War II (USMMVWWII); a nationwide, tax-exempt, non-profit historical and educational institution.
Our mission is threefold:
Educate the public on the importance of the U.S. Merchant Marine service to this nation’s military strength during times of conflict and economic strength during times of peace and promote a stronger U.S. Merchant Marine going into the future.
Improve the scope of recognition for Merchant Marine Veterans, and to assist them in getting up-to-date information regarding benefits and awards due them.
Maintain the S.S. Lane Victory in a fully-operational and sea-worthy condition so the public can enjoy the ship as she serves in her role as a living memorial and museum highlighting the contributions and sacrifices of the U.S. Merchant Marine Service and U.S. Naval Armed Guard during World War II as well as serving as a platform to inspire and educate future generations of American mariners.
