Day After Laffey’s Return

Waring Hills Jan 26, 2012

Last night the pier section that had been removed, was returned to position after Laffey's arrival.

Power workers are busy working on restoring electrical power to the ship and we are busy getting ready to open back up to the public. It will be a little longer to prep Laffey for visitors, but not much longer. Here are images showing the new positioning at Patriots Point and we look forward to getting back into our usual business of education, patriotism, preserving our nation’s heritage and stories of freedom… and the wonder of it all.

    After watching a show or two on Military Channel and/or Military History about the Laffey, I was excited to hear its a naval museum. To find out the Yorktown, Clamgore and others are there sealed the deal for a family trip to SC for tours. Thank you for the opportunities to see these historical ships. They look great in pictures so I am excited to see them “live”.

    She rests in a place of honor! Your photos and information are well appreciated.
    I can’t wait to visit! My father, Herschel V. Sellers was a commander aboard The Laffey. He passed away in May 2011 at 93 yrs. I speak for him …”Long live The Laffey!”
