The Society believes that the learning of our sea heritage is best acquired as it was achieved in history, through real ships with a real story to tell, through maintenance of the living arts that built our ships, and active practice of sailing skills. We believe that our national sea heritage matters, that it is a rich resource for present understandings and future courses. And the wider we can throw open the door for people, the more all sea historic projects will benefit, from New York to San Francisco, and Maine to Hawaii ... and the more the nation, now two hundred years old, stands to gain, and the citizen, who must learn anew each generation those things that it takes more than one generation to learn. Will you join us in this needed, challenging, deeply rewarding work? REAR ADMIRAL WALTER
