MISSION

The Alliance functions as a catalyst for its members to develop innovative new approaches to engage the public through joint marketing programs, public projects and creative mutually beneficial partnerships.


ALLIES

Spirit of ’45

The Spirit of ’45 is an alliance of organizations and individuals that are working together to preserve and honor the legacy of the men and women of America’s WWII generation so that their achievements and values will continue to inspire future generations – especially the youth of our nation. Their mission is to help promote public awareness and participation in Spirit of ’45 Day, an annual national day honoring America’s “Greatest Generation” that was passed unanimously by the U.S. Congress in 2010.

SS Red Oak Victory

 SS Red Oak Victory is the last surviving vessel of 747 ships of all types built at the Richmond Kaiser Shipyards during World War II. She continues to serve today as a museum ship and as a monument to the thousands of men and women who built and sailed these ships in a time of national crisis.

Rosie the Riveter Trust

As the non-profit partner of Rosie the Riveter World War II Home Front National Historical Park, Rosie the Riveter Trust inspires people to learn from history and apply those lessons in today’s world through historic preservation and educational programming.

Rosie the Riveter WWII Home Front National Historical Park

Explore and honor the efforts and sacrifices of American civilians on the World War II home front.  Find out how they lived, worked and got along. Many faces, many stories, many truths weave a complex tapestry of myths and realities from this time of opportunity and loss.

USS Hornet

The USS Hornet Sea, Air & Space Museum resides in the museum’s first and primary artifact, historic aircraft carrier USS Hornet. Our mission is to utilize USS Hornet and the collections, exhibitions, and educational programming to promote awareness and understanding of history, science, technology, and service.

USS Potomac

Alameda Naval Air Museum

USS Lucid

The Stockton Maritime Museum is near completion of the total restoration of the wooden Navy minesweeper, USS Lucid, to become the centerpiece of our museum on Stockton’s historic downtown waterfront. Celebrating our local maritime history from the Gold Rush to today, please call us to schedule a tour at your convenience.

“If you want to learn about the World War II Home Front, there is no better classroom than the San Francisco Bay Area.  We have sites such as historic ships, shipyards, military bases, and other infrastructure that supported the massive war effort. Many of these important resources have been preserved and are open to the public for entertainment and education.  Best of all for local residents, they are each less than a day’s traveling time from anywhere in the Bay Area.”
