The men who manned those little ships in the face of incredible danger.

      The freedom they fought to preserve.

Our Associate Members are comprised of family and friends of LCI veterans, non-LCI navy vets, and anyone interested in the history of LCIs in the United States Navy.  We encourage family and friends of LCI veterans, as well as anyone else interested, to join as associate members. Membership is open to the public! Become a member today!
