USS Yorktown Foundation Supports
Patriots Point

Honoring history and heroes in an awe-inspiring setting, Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum is America’s first aircraft carrier museum. Nearly 400,000 people visit Charleston Harbor every year to relive history aboard our legendary ships – and to behold the only Vietnam Naval Support Base Camp in the United States, Medal of Honor Museum, and the Cold War Submarine Memorial. Patriots Point is South Carolina’s leading heritage attraction, and with your help, we can maintain this distinction for generations to come. To preserve the living history of Patriots Point, we need all hands on deck. Although Patriots Point is a state agency, the museum receives no appropriated funding and looks to the USS Yorktown Foundation for assistance. Your donation will help fund exhibit renovations improvements onboard the USS Yorktown; fund new education programs; and fund upgrades to the museum’s technology to keep Patriots Point a dynamic, interactive and imaginative learning experience. We hope you’ll embark on this next journey with us.

We were so honored to have not one, but TWO veterans visiting Patriots Point over the weekend!

The first picture is of Gene Ferguson. He served on board the Yorktown from 1961-1965 as an aviation specialist in search and rescue. He was visiting with his wife and granddaughter.

In the second picture we have Steve Lawer who served on the USS Forrestal as Bosun Mate 3rd Class. He was visiting with his children and grandchildren.

Thank you both for your service, we appreciate everything you have done for our country! As always, we were so glad to have you spend your day with us.
