Associate Members

HNSA Associate Members are organizations whose objectives are compatible with the objectives of the Historic Naval Ships Association. Examples are historic ships not yet open to the public, firms who supply goods and services to Fleet Members, for-profit tourist attractions such as ship excursion lines, and non-profit organizations working to obtain historic naval ships for siting and display as museum vessels.

HNSA encourages its Fleet Members to give preference to the products and services offered by its Associate Member vendors and suppliers. It also advises Fleet Members to make their own decisions regarding the purchase, employment or other use of the products and services offered by its Associate Members. HNSA incurs no liability and assumes no responsibility for problems that may occur prior to, during or after an Associate Member has supplied a product or performed a service in support of a Fleet Member.

If you are interested in becoming an associate member, contact Dr. William Cogar at executivedirector@hnsa.org

YOUR SHIP HAS A STORY. WE WILL BRING IT TO LIFE.

What is Guru?
We are digital storytellers who use mobile technology to bring historical locations to life. Our custom­made experiences give your visitors a new way to explore your ship and deepen their engagement through audio overviews, videos, tours, games for kids, personal stories from veterans, augmented reality, and more.

­ Case Study: How Guru has impacted the Battleship Iowa?
Created in only six weeks, the Battleship Iowa was downloaded more than 1500 times in the first 60 days after launch. Loved by the visitors and crew alike, it has been a fitting upgrade for the ship’s “fourth commissioning” as one of the Navy’s most historical landmarks.
Constantly evolving, the interactive mobile tour is not a replacement for docents and volunteers but is actually used by them to better educate visitors.

The ADAMS played a key role in our Navy’s history and was stationed in Mayport for 21 of her 30 years of service life. She was the first guided missile destroyer built from the keel up by the U.S. Navy as a guided missile ship. This heralded a new age of U.S. Navy ships with advanced guided missile weapons systems. The ADAMS revolutionized naval warfare from two aspects, anti-air warfare and anti-submarine warfare.

The USS Adams Museum will be a fitting memorial to honor all veterans, especially the Sailors who served on this special class of warship. The museum will help educate our youth about STEM careers and contribute to the economic growth of Downtown Jacksonville. We are a community-led organization with board members and supporters, just like you, who are passionate about making a difference in their community.
