NavSource Naval History

The simple goal of NavSource Naval History is the preservation of naval history, in the form of images and text, also to help former shipmates find each other by providing reunion and contact information. We also hope to help historians and researchers find information and sources not previously available through private photo collections and records donated to us by former ships personnel. We also make available to everyone public images and records found scattered in various locations Indexed in one place for easy reference.


HullNumber.com’s mission is to provide a means for shipmates to keep in touch with one another.

U.S Navy Cruiser Sailors Organization

“We are an all-volunteer, tax-exempt organization by, for, and about U.S. Navy cruisers and their crews. Our headquarters is located in Rehoboth, Massachusetts. Formed in 1992 by seven cruiser sailors (see the ‘History’ tab), the organization has grown rapidly into a vibrant, member-oriented association with 3,300 active members. We have members who served in all 168 cruisers, the number of ‘modern’ cruisers built since the 1930’s!”
