The Freedom comes out of the water on 4/25. For the next three weeks we will need volunteer labor – skilled and unskilled to make the vessel ready to install this baby on week 3 and 4 of May.

This is great progress, but we’re not out of the woods yet. We still need your financial support to ensure that the refit goes on with out a hitch.¬†Contact Monterey Bay Veterans mbvinc@pacbell.net, 831 901-0217, or www.mbv.org to see how you can help to make this a reality by June of this year.
