My father (in Brazil), step-father (commander in Subic Bay), and uncle (seven ships in 25 years) were all in the Navy in WW II. Nephew on USS Seattle AOE-3 for Operation Enduring Freedom.
Since July '08, my husband and I are very fortunate to own www.NavalShopping.com (and www.HistoryShopping.com). We have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. We're a small company with a big heart. Please read our testimonial section found on the lower left of our home page.
Excellent service, great quality and pricing on apparel includes custom embroidery. Unique items include throw pillows (made in USA), jigsaw puzzles (made in USA), and 50" x 60" cotton knit blankets (made in USA) with picture of your choice knit into it - we did one for the USS Rankin; the picture of it is on our site!
We're the ship store for the USS Belknap and the USS Aylwin and we're charter members in the Alliance of Military Reunions (MilitaryReunions@aol.com). We'll be in Branson November 5 - 11 for the All Military Homecoming. We're also a drop off location for Cell Phones for Soldiers.
