The following pictures were submitted by Michael McDermott who is part of the restoration crew working on USS Hornet. They have been on board USS Holland salvaging parts and equipment for Hornet as recently as March 2009 to further that project. Michael has been kind enough to take and share with us over 90 pictures of Holland - both outside and more importantly - inside - as pictures inside the ship aren't very common. As fast as MARAD has been sending ships to the scrap yards lately - this was an opportunity that might not come along again - and we're very grateful to Michael for his efforts on behalf of sailors he has never met - nor is he likely too - just a very generous gift of one sailor to many more! Thanks Michael - we salute you!
