Quarterdeck Of Honor

In naval tradition, the QUARTERDECK is the part of the deck on a vessel designated by the captain for official and ceremonial use. The National Museum of the Surface Navy’s virtual Quarterdeck of Honor recognizes all of the Plank Owners for their support of the only national museum dedicated to our US Navy ships and sailors, opening aboard Battleship IOWA on October 13, 2025.

Thank you for your dedication and commitment to defending Freedom of the Seas.
