Your support is so important. The USS SLATER is owned and operated by the private not for profit
Destroyer Escort Historical Museum as an IRS 501(c)(3). Founded by veterans as a living naval museum, USS SLATER is listed listed as a National Historic Landmark. Its operation is funded by contributions from loyal members, volunteers, former ship crews, corporations
and private foundations. The Museum does not rely on taxpayer money, but on the generosity and patriotic spirit of those interested in preserving our naval heritage and insuring that the memory of these veterans is not forgotten when they are gone.
