USS New York Memorial Library


A memorial library is being put together for the USS New York (LDP 21).  Commissioned on 9 November 2009, the New York is being constructed of steel from the World Trade Center. Veterans, the Fire and Police Departments of New York, and 9/11 family members are compiling a "modern military" section.  The group hopes to reach Marine and Navy authors and ask them to put a personal inscription in their book.
The group is seeking assistance in locating 30 authors. To receive a copy of the author list, please contact the coordinator for this effort, U.S. Army veteran, John Churcher. He can be reached at  978-537-3161 or
