NMASF Mission

Directly support the National Museum of the American Sailor (NMAS) in collecting, preserving, and interpreting the history of the United States Navy’s enlisted Sailor.

Our Vision

The National Museum of the American Sailor Foundation (NMASF) supports the National Museum of the American Sailor (NMAS), the only United States Department of the Navy museum solely dedicated to collecting, preserving, and interpreting the history of the United States Navy’s enlisted Sailor by:

 -          Attracting enthusiastic financial support that provides NMAS with financial and operational resources to meet its mission.

-          Advocating for NMAS and fostering an appreciation for the crucial role that the American Sailor fulfills in the United States Navy by serving as the “backbone” of the fleet.

-          Engaging a global audience and supporting the museum in creating a positive, memorable experience for its visitors through programs and exhibitions that capture the esprit de corps and professional expertise of the United States Navy’s enlisted Sailor.

-          Backing the museum’s continual drive for operational excellence and the highest levels of professionalism as outlined by the American Alliance of Museums.

 NMAS members perform their duties with the highest standards of integrity and in conformance with the United States Navy Sailor’s core values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment.
