Why was LSD36.COM created?

While planning the 2013 reunion, I came across numerous navy ship association websites and took notice of how their ships were honored. All the websites provided reunion information, ship’s history, and maybe a crew list. For some, their ships served as a museum. I started to think more seriously about how USS Anchorage (LSD 36) should be memorialized. Sure, it would be nice if it were moored right next to USS Midway (CV 41) here in San Diego, but instead it sits at 2,560 fathoms at GPS coordinates 22:57.2N, 160:05.6W

This website is my way of paying tribute to USS Anchorage (LSD 36). Enjoy!
