  1. “Constitution Grove at the Navy’s 64,000-acre naval base in Crane, Ind., whose sole purpose is to provide lumber for the restoration of the USS Constitution” – Just to clarify, it is Constitution Grove, NOT the 64,000 acre naval base in Crane, whose sole purpose is to provide this lumber! The wording was a little misleading. :)

  2. Hi J-Lo. Thanks for point that out. I did indeed mean that Constitution Grove provided the lumber, not the naval base, and the wording was confusing. We tweaked it.

  3. For the longest I didn’t know you real look k like ur dad .this is for commander of the ship Robert gersoa Jr. From uncle Dennis May god bless u and continue great success

  4. Amy, do you know anything about a plaque on the USS Constitution that has Navy personnel names on it? My Mom told be that my Dad’s name (he is retired Navy, now deceased) will be on this plaque for the next 20 years but I can’t find anything about it online.

  5. I may be mistaken that in 1968 I joined the Navy and I had a. Cousen join the Murchent Marines and at that time we were bout in boot camp, me Navy him Murchent,(Point) he was there when the constatuion, was in drydock. He had weekend watch on the ship ,Yep he and I were abord the ship for his watch, and he and I were in every passage way bilge and part of that no one has ever seen. In between the planks in the bilge I found two handforged nails ,I’m a son of a son carpenter and I know what a hand forged nail looks like, and I am sad to say lost but I injoied every thing about the vesil and the history.
