Merchant mariners played a critical role in World War II by carrying supplies, weapons, and troops from the United States to support American forces abroad. This December the Museum will open a long awaited exhibit honoring their often forgotten contribution to the war effort.

Learn more about the Merchant Marine efforts in the Ralph E. Crump, LTJG, USNR, US Merchant Marine Gallery opening this December 12.
