The National Museum of Nuclear Science and History in Albuquerque, New Mexico has acquired the Jimmy K sail for incorporation into a display on its museum grounds. This museum is a congressionally chartered Smithsonian Institute affiliate. Through the generous and tireless efforts of the USS James K. Polk Veterans Association, the money necessary to transport and refurbish the sail has been raised, the memorial is now built, and the brick hardscape surrounding the sail has begun to grow.
The brick hardscape consists of two options: standard sized engraved bricks or engraved pavers. The pavers have sold out so only bricks are available. The cost of the bricks is $150.00
The bricks can be engraved with your name & dates of service, purchased as a gift for a favored shipmate, engraved as a memorial to a shipmate on eternal patrol or just about any other thing you want.
The cost of the brick is a tax-deductible contribution. To place an order visit the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History donation page for the sail.
Together we can be a powerful force in helping to maintain and grow this valuable Cold War memorial.
