“Still Making History”

USS Albany Association & Heritage Exhibit Recognition


Over the years, we have been extremely fortunate to have many make contributions through our journey in establishing the USS Albany Association & Heritage Exhibit.

From our inception in 1990 through our present programs, many were instrumental and we would like to list some that had a major impact on our accomplishments.

Association Shipmates, Local Vendors, US Navy Historical Command, US Navy Spawar Command, City of Albany, Urban Cultural Parks System, Albany County Convention & Visitor Bureau and all our contractors. Without their support, our past and current programs could not have been possible.

This page is to say thank you, to the many that have helped achieve our objectives.

Thank you!
Bravo Zulu!

Special Thank You

During the process of upgrading our current Website, many hours was spent on finding a new development program, retaining a service, finding a new theme, establishing a layout, content, color, text fronts, processing information, proofreading and preparing it for viewing.

We have established our goals and I would like to give a special Thank you to our Albany Association website development team, Association Editor Dick Desrochers, Board of Directors member Bart Hutchins, Heritage Exhibit Chairman and Webmaster Wayne Van Amburgh, Judy Van Amburgh, LogicalNet Inc., and Web Designer Michael DeRuscio.

LogicalNet is not new to the Albany Association since they have been providing website services to the Association for the past 20 plus years and we look forward to our continued relationship.

Thank you & “Job Well Done“

Wayne V. Van Amburgh
