Frequently overlooked, but significant in its impact, consider volunteering some time to help us at the Foundation. We are a fairly small organization, and with the ever-increasing naval history opportunities and rising costs, volunteers are a valuable asset. While most work would be at the Foundation office at the Washington Navy Yard, there are out of area options, such as volunteering to conduct oral history interviews in the part of the country where you reside. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Lynn Neagley at (202) 678-4333 or email her at for more volunteer information. Please download and send this volunteer form to NHF at P.O. Box 15304, Washington, DC 20003 or sign up online.
