Rendering of the JOHN W. BROWN, titled "Homeward Bound," by MM&P member Captain Brian Hope.

This Is MM&P Country . The Liberty Ship JOHN W. BROWN, which saw action during the invasion of Italy, is one of the last of the great fleet which helped win the Second World War. American merchant seamen braved torpedoes and bombs aboard their Liberty Ships to keep the sea lanes to Europe open-it was called the Finest Hour of the American Merchant Marine. The Masters, Mates and Pilots is fighting to save our merchant marine , just as we are helping to save the JOHN W. BROWN. MM&P deck officers sharpen their skills at MITAGS, which houses an array of sophisticated electronics and simulators never dreamed of in the heyday of the Liberties. MITAGS is a result of a close collaboration between MM&P and American flag shipping companies. ROBERT J. LOWEN
