Please join us on 11 September 2021, the twenty-year anniversary of 9/11, for a tribute to the great boatlift of the day and the role our maritime heritage community played in its success. We will screen the short documentary film Boatlift: An Untold Tale of 9/11 Resilience narrated by Tom Hanks, followed by a panel discussion on the largest water evacuation in maritime history. Joining us for the panel discussion will be NMHS trustee emeritus RADM Richard Larrabee, USCG (Ret.), USCG Safety and Security Division Chief for Sector New York John Hillin, president of the New Jersey Sandy Hook Pilots Association Capt. Andrew McGovern, founder of the fireboat John J. Harvey Huntley Gill, and USCG-licensed marine engineer and author of Saved at the Seawall: Stories from the September 11 Boat Lift Jessica DuLong. NMHS Seminar Series Steering Committee chairman Louis Liotti will moderate.
Pre-registration is required and appreciated. Seminars are free to attend, although we hope you will support the Seminar Series with a suggested $10 Seminar Guest donation.
