When trying to decide on a name for this project back in 1995, I was looking for something that described what I was trying to provide. A One Stop Naval Resource Center, where visitors could find information and images of ships of the USN. So from these two words, Naval Resources, NavSource was born and registered in 1996 as the Domain name under which we operate.
NavSource, is not a business it is a group of Volunteers who
are not paid for their time and efforts, we do it because we all share
the same respect and love of naval history and through our efforts
provide a free resource for the naval enthusiast that has been
unavailable by other means. Most all of us have Full Time Jobs and work
on this project as time allows, Others are retired and one still in
school. Sometimes progress seems slow and it may take some time to have
submitted information added to the project but we are always working to
make this information available.
We also work in close conjunction with other naval history sites like, Andrew Toppan's http://www.hazegray.org to bring you up to date, factual and accurate information without having to navigate around advertising banners. By working together we can avoid duplication of effort and thus provide you with a wide array of information that the USN History Branch has not been able to provide.
We are also working with various groups like the DESTROYER ESCORT SAILORS ASSN. to preserve as much history of these ships as possible.
The USN, Limited by budget constraints provides as much information as they can and has an excellent Web site http://www.history.navy.mil. When used in conjunction with these sites, you should be able to locate the information that you seek. This is an ongoing project, information and images are added as they become available to us.
The simple goal of NavSource Naval History is the preservation of naval history, in the form of images and text, also to help former shipmates find each other by providing reunion and contact information. We also hope to help historians and researchers find information and sources not previously available through private photo collections and records donated to us by former ships personnel. We also make available to everyone public images and records found scattered in various locations Indexed in one place for easy reference.
NavSource is truly a non profit organization, 100% of the costs
involved have come out of my own pocket. I have provided this resource
since 1995. With the move to our new server and ISP, Our costs are now
fixed at an affordable rate that will allow us to grow without
additional huge cash outlays.
Donations are welcome and greatly appreciated,
