Membership in the Living History Crew is open to anyone regardless of sex, race, color, or creed who is at least 16 years of age* and who has an interest in helping to achieve the stated goals of the organization. However, because we are recreating the Navy of WWII, members accepted as part of the ship's crew must be male. Female members will be assigned to the shore based WAVES or women's auxiliary unit.
Previous re-enacting or living history experience or prior naval or military service is not required. Applicants must agree to purchase the minimum required uniform items and adhere to the rules and regulations of the Living History Crew.
*Members who are 16 years of age may participate in the living history program. However, members must be 18 to stay aboard overnight.
