Since 1999, USSArizona.org has been presented by the Nease Family; Budd, Carol & Nancy. With the passing of Budd in 2011 and ever increasing costs of operations and research, this website now faces shutting down.
Until his death in 2011, Budd Nease (USNR Ret.) served 10 years as Historian for the USS Arizona Reunion Association. His wife Carol assisted him with answering thousands of emails from service personnel, students of all ages, and people from all walks of life around the world. His daughter Nancy worked as his Assistant Historian and took over duties as Historian in 2011 as well as maintaining this website. Budd's grandson, Charles, has stepped into the role of Assistant Historian and answers emails as well.
One of Budd's greatest pleasures was assisting students with their research projects and linking them with USS Arizona survivors for interviews. In an effort to continue to keep this website free to students and the general public, and continue operations, we are asking for your help.
Your donations go directly to supporting this website and costs of ongoing research. Any donation, no matter how small, goes a long way to keeping USSARIZONA.ORG operating. Please use the "Donate" button to securely make a donation through PayPal today. We thank you for your help.
