Volunteers Wanted
To Assist With Restoration and Preservation
of
USS Charles F. Adams DDG-2

The Adams Class Veterans Association is looking for qualified volunteers to assist with the restoration and preservation of the USS Charles F. Adams, when NAVSEA turns her over for use as a Memorial and Museum in the city of Jacksonville Florida.

If you believe you might be interested in volunteering, please read the guidelines listed below, fill out the interest form, and click on the "send" button.

At this time we are still in the process of writing and submitting the Donation Application and raising money for Pier Design, Permits, Marketing Survey, etc. Being at this stage, we do not have a date when Volunteers would actually be invited to come aboard Adams. We do, however, want to compile a "Show of Interest List" which will help us in preparing our Donation Application and making plans for the future.

Please put an X in any boxes below you want to fill in, unless we ask for a YES or NO answer.


Ship Restoration Volunteer   

Candidates should have basic or technical skills. Basic skills include using hand tools, cleaning, preserving and painting. Restoring compartments and spaces to “the way they were” will also require technical skills of welders, electricians, plumbers, and electronics and weapons technicians. Restoring the ship will not only require painting and basic repairs, but also restoring equipment from lighting panels to radio, engineering equipment and weapons systems to their “operating appearance” to serve as displays for visitors.

Exhibits Volunteer  

Candidates should have basic skills necessary to construct new exhibits such as the use of hand tools, painting and finishing as well as woodworking, electrical and electronics installation. These volunteers will work on organized projects to display the ship's operations, systems, and life of sailors at sea.
