Today Evansville was awarded the Military Vehicle Preservation Association National Convention in 2009. The presentation was presented by Garry Hisel with a opener by Kenny Adams about the World Water Week. Anna and Tammy attended the meeting with their husbands. We beat out Los Angeles California and Louisville Kentucky with a 7 to 2 vote. The meeting was held in Kansas City Missouri. We will keep you abreast of the details as they happen.

to show off the Grey Lady and share the history of LST/Amphib Sailors throughout time!

This will be a wonderful way to show off all of Evansville's war efforts and the great work of all of the crew and volunteers from Greece to Mobile to Evansville and to all of you throughout the US who travel to work. It's a natural fit to have the MVPA Conventioneers and all of their wonderful exhibits showing exactly the type of cargo LSTs transported!

As Michael often says, it's a symbiotic relationship - of the very best kind!
