SS Red Oak Victory Ship Tour

November 10, 2018 10:00 A.M.

The Palo Alto Amateur Radio Association (PAARA) is hosting a tour of the SS Red Oak Victory ship; and MDARC is invited! So mark your calendar and see below for details.

SS Red Oak Victory is the last surviving vessel of 747 ships of all types that were built at the Richmond Kaiser Shipyards during World War II.  She is also one of the last surviving World War II Victory ships.  The Red Oak continues to serve today as a museum ship and as a monument to the thousands of men and women who worked hard to build these ships in a time of national crisis.
These ships, along with their cousins the Liberty ships, were built on an emergency basis to carry vital supplies and troops to all theaters of war.  The Victory ships remain today as a symbol of the national resolve and industrial might that won the Second World War.

Join the group on a tour of the Red Oak Victory Ship on Saturday, November 10, 10 A.M.  With the members of both PAARA and MDARC, this will be a fascinating tour that will offer a chance to meet our neighboring radio club members.

This is a drive yourself trip, but remember, car pooling is always good.  There is plenty of free parking.  You can also visit the Rosie the Riveter Museum after the Red Oak tour if you wish.  It’s just a short drive from the ship if you want a twofer.
