For the first time, the public will have an opportunity to honor a veteran, first responder, relative or friend with a permanent plaque aboard the historic Battleship Wisconsin. The program creates a permanent place of recognition and a meaningful tribute for loved ones – military or civilian, living or deceased. The recognition program was first introduced to veterans of the USS Wisconsin in April; this public launch is set to coincide with Father’s Day.
Several locations have been identified for the plaque recognitions, including racks (bunks) and lockers located in the enlisted berthing areas, Chief Petty Officer berthing and Master Chief berthing.
“The Battleship Wisconsin is quite literally a part of the history of this nation,” said Nauticus executive director, Stephen E. Kirkland. “This gives families an ideal opportunity to recognize the hero in their lives, and I can’t think of a more appropriate place to do that.”
Pricing starts at $250 for lockers and $500 for racks, and Wisconsin crewmembers receive a 10% discount on all levels. ALL proceeds from this program support the preservation, restoration, and interpretation of the Battleship Wisconsin.
