U.S. Navy Ship Quarterdeck Name Boards

This section breaks down the Quarterdeck Name Boards on display at both National Museum of the U.S. Navy (Bldg. 76) and the Cold War Gallery (Bldg.70).  The name boards are used when U.S. Navy ships are alongside piers, at anchor, or in dry dock.    Hung on either the port or starboard quarterdeck, the boards help identify the vessel.
