“Points of Interest in San Francisco, CA”
Open to all who wish to learn about this unique warship and the men whose lives are inextricably linked because of her, and will grow over time, as new information is gleaned from numerous sources. The intent is to tell as many of the stories as possible about the sailors and Marines who knew her, and to that extent, the Foundation welcomes any and all information about any aspect of the ship's history, from the men who served on land and sea, from their families and friends, from historians and hobbyists.Become a member and you will be given access to special resources and tools that will enable you to tell your piece of history.No matter how much the site grows, however, not every story will be told here. Volumes could (and have) been written about the USMC who fought for every square inch of ground in invasion after bloody invasion, and while this site commemorates those battles, there are numerous websites devoted to their efforts at Guadalcanal , Iwo Jima, Okinawa and other islands in the campaign. But even focusing on the USS San Francisco is a daunting task, since thousands of men were touched by her.Some stories have been lost forever, as the players in those dramas have passed on. Time is of the essence, as the people and events depicted here are passing into history, so please join with us in preserving these faces, photos and stories for generations to come. Join the Foundation today.
