Maritime WebAward

Presented September 7, 2006

Silver Award from Maritime Web Awards

Thanks for telling us about the great website covering the story of the USS OKLAHOMA CITY. The website is a fine tribute to a vessel that sailed through some of the most turbulent events of the 20th century. For former shipmates and maritime naval historians, your site must prove a valuable resource and link point.

We are delighted to grant our SILVER award to your website, as a token of the huge effort and data gathering that has clearly gone on in providing so much information to visitors.

The Maritime Web Awards exist purely to recognise and promote those maritime websites around the world that freely inform and interest the general public about the positive aspects of the maritme world today or its history. So often, those who spend so much of their free time creating such maritime masterpieces are only rewarded with a few nice comments in their guestbooks, so in order to encourage and congratulate the webmasters, we are delighted to be able to attach the Award symbol.

Fly With Eagles Award

Presented January 27, 2003

Hart Award

I have just finished visiting your web site and am pleased to tell you that your web page has been selected to receive the "FLY WITH EAGLES" award presented by HART Enterprises.

This award was implemented because in 1984, as the result of an accident while serving as an officer on active duty with the US Army, I became a quadriplegic, paralyzed from the chest down. In a veterans hospital for 10 months, I was among many young men struggling to put a sense of worth back into their lives. I always admired our national symbol, the bald eagle, for its strength, courage and beauty, and its ability to soar on the slightest of winds. It was what those of us in the hospital were trying to do - muster up the strength and courage to live our lives with the least amount of help.
Now I am in a position financially, physically, and spiritually to recognize others for their efforts. Thus, the "Fly With Eagles" award was born. We surf the net looking for worthy web pages. And, in some cases, web pages are recommended to us.
Your respect for proper NET ETHICS and your ability to display your web page in a LOGICAL, INFORMATIVE, and CREATIVE format places you among only a handful of web masters that have received this award.
God Bless You

Your site was very artfully appointed and there was found no doubt whatsoever, as to the worthiness of your Website to claim this Award.
