HNSA Members Salute to Healthcare Workers and First Responders

On Friday, 20 May 2020, several HNSA organizations around the country sounded their ship whistles as an honor to all healthcare workers and first responders on the front lines battling COVID-19. The initiative began as an idea of Kevin Osgood and his team at the Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. The whistle coincided with National Maritime Day. 

HNSA members, as well as some ships from the Council of Maritime Museum (CAMM), delivered a “Master’s Salute” consisting of three long blasts (:05 each) followed by two short blasts (:02 each) from their whistles. This was a great opportunity to honor those fighting hard against the present pandemic.
