Many local businesses and corporations have assisted us over the years in helping educate the public about the history and sacrifices made by the men and women of our Armed Forces. They do this through the sponsorship of special events and/or exhibitions. All sponsors are recognized in local media coverage leading up to and covering such events, in on-site advertisements during the events, on our website, and in the KIDD’s Compass museum newsletter which is distributed to our membership throughout the nation.
Some upcoming events that are still in need of sponsorship are:
“No child should ever be denied the opportunity to experience the ship for want of the ability to purchase a ticket.”

Wife of WWII KIDD crew member William T. Barnhouse
Museum Passes are a partnership program with several local parish library systems that give families an opportunity to visit local museums free of charge. Our passes allow 2 adults and 2 children to visit and may be checked out at your local library. Please check with your local library for pass availability.
Museum Passes are made possible by your local parish library, corporate, and foundation sponsors. If you are interested in purchasing passes for your parish library contact us at 225-342-1942.

There is no definitive date on when the ship will leave for drydock.
