Thoughout the Edson are many cases with displays of ship models and other memorabilia. Even the name plate from the transome of the USS Massey, DD 778 a Sumner class destroyer.
Items on display were donated mostly by other tin can sailors. Ships patches, ball caps, coffee mugs, uniforms. The models are great and very well detailed.
Lots of interesting displays and history there. History we were all a part of.
If you go away hungry here somethings wrong. This food is delicious.
The coffee is good too

USS Intrepid CV11, veteran of WWII, Korea and Veitnam. On display is about every type of aircraft that has flown on her flight deck.. How many times has our ship followed this old girl as plane guard during flight ops.
Come and help preserve our history. Look for field days in other areas too. Charleston, South Carolina, Baton Rouge, La. Buffalo, NY. Fall River Mass. Bremerton, Washington and Orange, Texas are just a few ship museums with Destroyers that have field days.
