Tin Can Sailors
Tributes/Memorials

Many ship associations choose to make donations in the name of deceased members or others whom the members of the association wish to honor. There is currently no minimum donation amount to be published in The Tin Can Sailor but space limitations may require that we institute such a limit in the future. Tributes will remain on the web site for one year or longer.

Donations may be designated in any of four ways:

     1.   To a specific museum ship
     2.   To the Thomas J. Peltin Destroyer Museum Grant Program for all museum ships
     3.   To the Tin Can Sailors General Operating Fund
     4.   To a specific purpose such as the Tin Can Sailors Library or
                to defray expenses at a Bull Session, National Reunion, etc.
