National Destroyer Memorial

The Admiral Arleigh Burke National Destroyer Museum  is dedicated to all destroyers and sailors still on station is currently being renovated aboard USS Joseph P. Kennedy Jr.  Along with the names of the destroyers in US Navy history that were lost, the forward running light from the WW2 destroyer USS Thorn (DD-647) will be a eternal lighted remembrance of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the Tin Can Navy.

The museum is currently undergoing a major renovation and is working with many ship and veteran organizations to perserve and present the story of the destroyermen.
