During these uncertain times, how can we help?

The mission of Project Liberty Ship is to educate people of all ages about the vital role of the wartime American Merchant Marine, Naval Armed Guard, and shipbuilders, three largely unheralded groups that were instrumental in the Allied Victory in World War II, as well as the sealift for Korea and Vietnam, by presenting living history aboard the authentically restored Liberty Ship JOHN W. BROWN that is being preserved to honor the legacy of all American veterans.
Project Liberty Ship is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization consisting entirely of volunteers. Our goal is the preservation and operation of the S.S. JOHN W. BROWN, the last surviving Liberty ship on the east coast, and one of anly two operational Liberty ships remaining from the great fleet of over 2,700 identical Libertys which were one of the keys to the Allied victory in World War II. The BROWN is being preserved as a museum ship and a living memorial to the men and women of the American industry that built the great Liberty fleet and the Merchant Seamen and Naval Armed Guard who sailed and defended these ships all over the world.
