A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Merchant Marine Collection - According to Webster's Dictionary the Merchant Marine is comprised of "All the ships of a nation that are used in commerce, and also their personnel." Today we can hardly imagine how much cargo is shipped by ocean going vessels. And the ships themselves range from the small to the enormous. During every war the merchant marine has played a critical role. The Liberty Ships of WWII were built in large numbers and could carry about 10,000 tons of war material. Of the Merchant Marine in WWII FDR said, "They have written one of its most brilliant chapters. They have delivered the goods when and where needed in every theater of operations and across every ocean in the biggest, and most difficult and dangerous job ever undertaken." In the Pacific, MacArthur said, "I ordered them off their ships and into foxholes when their ships became untenable under attack. The high caliber of efficiency and the courage they displayed mark their conduct throughout the entire campaign. I hold no branch in higher esteem than the Merchant marine." In war or peace, it seems the Merchant Marine is held in high regard.
