DEDICATION

This web site is dedicated to all the families, friends and the crew members present and past who served aboard the ships named Providence. It is a tribute to the devotion to duty and tireless efforts of those who served aboard her in peace and war. May we never forget the spirit of Providence and those who stand vigilant and strong, always ready to protect and defend our country.

Today our military is called to action again and I am proud of the men and women going in harms way to defend our country. God Bless America and Godspeed to our troops.

Website created January 21, 1999
