The USS TURNER JOY (DD-951) museum ship is operated and maintained entirely as a non-profit enterprise by the Bremerton Historic Ships Association (BHSA). As you can imagine, restoring a naval ship of this size, and opening it to the public, is an ongoing expensive endeavor.
Contributions are always very welcome. $5, $10, $25, $50, $100… whatever you can contribute will help us keep the Turner Joy in shipshape condition and ready to continue serving as a wonderful educational and historic treasure.
Donations are tax-deductible, and may be made in honor of your relative or friend who may have served in the United States Armed Services, perhaps even aboard the Turner Joy.
