Volunteers are ALWAYS needed!
All we have done, are doing, and will accomplish is not possible without the commitment, time, and skills of our volunteers. As a non-profit organization, volunteers are the lifeblood of the organization.  Since we took possession of our ship and 24 sailors returned her to our shores and our homeport of Evansville, hundreds of volunteers have worked thousands of hours in restoration, maintenance and sharing the ship’s historic legacy to tourists and school groups while in port and our annual cruise to other historic events.
There are always volunteer opportunities for our members! Groups are invited for one-time projects or continued projects. Individual volunteers are added to one of our volunteer crews listed below:

Ship Maintenance and Restoration Crew is always in need of painters and people that are not afraid of a little dirt.  The majority of this work is accomplished while in Evansville.  Workers can live aboard while working on one or more of the ongoing projects.  Opportunities exist for those with specific experience on a LST, with technical skills, and those who simply love and support historic ships.

Cruise Crew each year the ship makes a trip to another US port.  Done in conjunction with a historic event, the ship remains in port and welcomes visitors abroad to learn more about the ship, crew, and service through three conflicts.  Crews require experienced sailors, with a limited number of positions for general help.

Education Crew assists all guests during their visits to the ship.  Leading tours, assisting with displays, and sharing our history make the visit a richer experience for individuals, families, and school groups.

Come join our staff and volunteer crews who strive every day to preserve the USS LST 325 and the crews of all LSTS’s legendary naval legacy.
 We ask that all our volunteers become members of the USS LST Ship Memorial and to fill out a Volunteer Form. (If having trouble printing, make sure to click "Enable Editing" once you open the Excel file.)
