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 Mr. John Elliker at [email protected]


The U.S. Navy Supply Corps Foundation is a non-profit, philanthropic and social organization serving “anyone who has ever worn the Oakleaf” in the United States Navy.

The Navy Supply Corps Foundation “takes care of our own” by assisting, serving, informing, and inspiring the Supply Corps Community—perpetuating the values, traditions, and history of the Supply Corps. The Foundation pursues its mission by providing services and programs related to recruiting, training and development, transition, recognition, financial support and commemoration to the Supply Corps Community.

In 1970, the Navy Supply Corps Foundation was established as the financial arm of the Alumni Association and in 1996 the Foundation merged with a similar, but social organization, called The Navy Supply Corps School Alumni Association. The merger resulted in one organization with both social and charitable goals—The Navy Supply Corps Foundation.

Today, the Foundation boasts 10,000 members, including active duty, reservists, retired, former and Supply Corps family members and supports 37 Chapters world-wide, in places such as Japan, Djibouti, Bahrain, Sicily, Spain, and across the United States.

Since 1971, the Foundation Scholarship Program has awarded 2,431 scholarships valued in excess of $5,764,500 to Supply Corps family members and $2,500 in memorial scholarships annually to the children of Supply Corps officers who have died while on active duty.

The Navy Supply Foundation serves a diverse membership and strives to provide support throughout the lives of our members. Through the generous donations of our members and their families, the Foundation ensures continued development of family social events, community support activities, transition services, crisis funding, scholarships and historical Navy Supply Corps exhibits for years to come.

The Mission of the Pritzker Military Museum and Library is to acquire and maintain an accessible collection of materials and develop appropriate programs focusing on the Citizen Soldier in the preservation of democracy.  Colonel J.N. Pritzker, IL ARNG (Retired), founder of the Pritzker Military Museum & Library, assembled a major collection of books and related materials on military history, with a particular focus on the concept of the Citizen Soldier in America. Today, building upon that foundation through the generosity of private donors, the Pritzker Military Museum & Library has become a non-partisan research organization that attempts to increase the public understanding of military history and the sacrifices made by the men and women who have served.

In a democratic society, it is important for people of all viewpoints to have an open, public forum to discuss the past, present, and future of the military. Through its collection and its programs, the Museum & Library is dedicated to serving as a forum for those discussions and preserving them for future generations. Since opening in 2003, the Museum & Library has hosted more than 400 events featuring the country’s most acclaimed authors, historians, journalists, and scholars.
