The Flagship of America is in need of help…your help…and a vision to restore her. Please help save the SS United States!
Cruise ship history: 22-year-old SS UNITED STATES Conservancy supporter Jonathan Doucette has crafted a sixty-second online commercial spot promoting the cause of saving our nation’s flagship. A fierce advocate for the ship’s preservation, Doucette is a graduate of the Pratt Institute in New York where he studied Communications Design and majored in Advertising Art Direction. When he was an infant, Jonathan’s grandparents traveled about the QE2 and he subsequently became fascinated with the memorabilia they saved from their voyage. His emerging interest in ocean liners ultimately lead him to discover the SS United States, and he made a pilgrimage to Philadelphia in March 2009 to see the ship first hand.
“I was motivated to create the video ‘The Vision’ to help spread the word that the SS United States is far too special and unique to be forgotten. While she is still here with us, we must come together with a vision to see her restored so that she can enter a new chapter of her life,” said Doucette. The Conservancy appreciates such efforts on behalf of spreading public awareness about the plight of our national flagship.
