a list of Navy and Coast Guard Ships

ATTENTION: We are no
longer accepting or answering requests to have links added
to this page
that are NOT directly
Military related in nature, such as Health, PTSD, Drug
Addiction, Legal help, etc
This small sampling below covering
those websites should be adequate to show our Shipmates that
there are MANY such resources on the web.
I encourage our Shipmates to find more
such sites in your area by using their favorite search
engine, such as Yahoo, Google, MSN, etc.
The websites listed here HAVE NOT been
checked out, NOR approved and are NOT endorsed by the
REPRESENTATIVES OF THE ABOVE AND OTHER NON-MILITARY
I often get 2 or MORE such requests
weekly, and, having been Webmaster 18+ years
I could easily fill a page with a list
of such websites (do the Math).
That said, please don't expect me to
keep responding to such requests.
Sincerely...the USS Hector Association
