Incredibly exciting news: The National Defense Authorization Act passed the House last night!
What does that mean? “The National Defense Authorization Act passed the U.S. House last night and includes Congresswoman Nanette Diaz Barragán’s legislation to designate the battleship U.S.S. Iowa Museum as the National Museum of the Surface Navy. Once it becomes law, as expected, this bill will make the Battleship Iowa the first and only museum in the nation dedicated solely to the men and women who have served in the surface forces of the U.S. Navy.”
Thanks to Congresswoman Barragan and all those who helped make this bill a reality. We couldn’t be more thrilled to honor the legacy of the Surface Navy with the new national museum.
