The USS Ling (SS-297) is in danger, they want to kick her out of her home to make room for Condos. Sign the petition to save her. Print it and have some frends sign it too.

WS - I've added a shortcut to this thread in the SH4 GD forum.

You may want to amend the spelling in your subject and post though - 'pention' sounds a bit like 'pension (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/pension)', when of course you mean 'petition' http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Also, have you thought about setting up a petition people can sign online? The guy from uboat.net who set up the current U-534 petition used this website:

http://www.gopetition.com

More info here:

http://www.gopetition.com/help.php

I bet the 'Save the Ling' campaign would get more support if it was online, because it would make the petition easier for people to sign.

BTW - have you got any good photos of the Ling you could post here?

Too bad she's not a National Historical Site, like some of the other boats. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Save The Ling (http://mysite.verizon.net/resx5uqm/savetheling/id14.html) Yeah I posted this a while back. I think the plan is to move her to Point Pleasant or next to the USS NEw Jersey. I am departing for Iraq soon but let me know what I can do to help.

Hehe.. yes I know that http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif, I was just wondering if WS has any of his own photos of the Ling, as *I think* he lives in NY which is where the Ling currently lives too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

We still need signatures. Besides the Ling, the NJ Naval Museum has a Memorial to the submarines and submariners lost while serving our country, 2 rare miniature submarines (Japanese & German) and other artifacts.
