Why You Should Join Tin Can Sailors
The National Association of Destroyer Veterans

Who can join? The majority of our members are destroyer veterans, but we have many members who served aboard destroyer escorts, frigates, destroyer tenders and other ships. We also welcome relatives of destroyer veterans, historians, model builders, and anyone who has an interest in preserving destroyers as museums. Only destroyer veterans, however, are eligible to serve on the board of directors.

The suggested annual contribution is $30.00 Tin Can Sailors is a bargain!
You'll receive a great
44-page newspaper four times a year.
You can attend our many events across the country.
You will be helping to support seven museum/memorial ships that serve as memorials to sailors. Tin Can Sailors is recognized by the IRS under Section 501(c)(3), therefore, contributions to Tin Can Sailors may be tax deductible.
You'll receive free or reduced price admission to many ships and maritime museums of the Historic Fleet. We offer a money-back guarantee on membership contributions and Ship's Store purchases. You can't lose!

So join the thousands of destroyer veterans who are
already members of Tin Can Sailors!
