USS Alabama and HBO Unite in Honor of Veterans

USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park near Mobile and the cable television network HBO are teaming up for a tribute to those currently serving in our armed forces, and veterans of all wars. The partnership will create a video tribute campaign, enabling everyone to record a video “thank you” that could become part of a montage to appear on HBO.com.

HBO has sponsored a video kiosk on the main deck of the USS Alabama so visitors to the World War II-era ship can record messages of thanks to veterans and active duty troops. From these video tributes a montage will appear on the HBO’s Web site, and will be distributed to the troops.

The HBO Pacific Tribute Campaign kiosk at Battleship Park will record a 30-second video message, free of charge. There is also an option to send the video to a soldier currently serving at home or overseas.

U.S. WWII veterans are dying at a rate of 1,500 per day, and the kiosk is an excellent opportunity to let them know what their sacrifices meant to us. Now is the time to show our respects to these amazing soldier and what they did for our country.

The HBO Pacific Tribute Campaign kiosk will remain at Battleship Memorial Park through the month of May. Museum hours are 8 a.m.–6 p.m., seven days a week.

You don’t have to go to Battleship Park to record your video tribute. If you have a Web cam you can record a tribute by downloading “The Pacific” widget from www.ussalabama.com.

The recently install real and virtual kiosks have already generated a lot of activity.

Other museums supporting the campaign are American Airlines C.R. Smith Museum, Fort Worth, Texas; Battleship Cove, Fall River, Mass.; Battleship Missouri Memorial: Honolulu, Hawaii: Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial, Camden, N.J.; Battleship Wisconsin at Nauticus, Norfolk, Va.; Carnegie Science Center-USS Requin Submarine, Pittsburgh, Pa.; Charlestown Navy Yard Visitors Center, Boston, Mass.; National Museum of the Marine Corps, Quantico, Va.; National Museum of the Pacific War, Fredericksburg, Texas; National Naval Aviation Museum.
