My name is Howard Bonnewell and I am the sales manager here at Nauticus. One of my projects that I have taken on, is to update the USS Preble Bridge. We are in the middle of updating the USS Preble Bridge with an area that deals with the history of the ship. What I am looking for..... if anyone has any artifacts from the ship. For an example at this time I have a hat, belt buckle and a year book. We are looking for anything that will bring the ship to life. If you would like to donate or loan anything, you can get in touch with me at (757)664-1012. Thanks,
Howard S. Bonnewell II

ET2 Wayne Biro and Bill McGuire wrote some Navy songs (with lyrics)
during Preble's 1984 Carribbean/Indian Ocean/Mediterranean cruise. The songs
were made aboard and about the USS Preble. It should add some additional color to the history of the Preble.
