Post: America's Lady is Still Waiting
3/11/2012
I've been a member of the SS United States Conservancy for many years and am thrilled to read this article about our work on saving the Big U. Thanks so much for enlightening Milwaukee readers about this very worthy, one-of-a-kind preservation effort. If the Golden Gate Bridge or the Empire State Building were threatened with loss, Americans would almost certainly rise up to preserve these icons, and Congress itself might even act. But the imminent loss of the SS United States - an equally important icon of America's mid-20th century might and prestige - appears to be 'off the radar screen' of most our fellow citizens. Your article helps give this critical preservation fight the visibility it desperately needs. Thanks again. Tom DeChant, Milwaukee
