Welcome aboard the USS SLATER where our passion greets your curiosity!
Open the past to reach the future!
Cultural history is an open door to unique and varied conversation based on everything from personal opinion to seminal research. The stories of people, places, and events that are driven by human nature define our discrete yet collective sense of place within the continuum of human endeavor. The anticipation in what we will find is exhilarating!
Join the cultural and scientific adventures with the crew of the USS SLATER DE766 museum ship. Open the door to July 1945 when the world was once again at war, and American teenage boys answered the call to duty, thereby saving democracy.
