1571893200 Downtown Events USS KIDD Fall Field Day USS KIDD Veterans Museum October 24, 2019 October 24, 2019 9:30 AM 4:00 PM A field day is a working weekend aboard a destroyer that is now a museum ship. All types of volunteer labor are welcomed but electricians, welders, plumbers, carpenters, etc., are especially needed. You can also clean, paint, or do any of the other numerous tasks that always need to be done. Participants bunk aboard ship for the duration of the field day and registration fees cover the cost of meals provided by museum volunteers. The work done in just three days' time is of enormous value to a non-profit organization that survives on self-generated funds. In 2014, Field Day volunteers provided an estimated $45,000 worth of skilled and unskilled labor. This invaluable program not only helps the museum in terms of maintenance and upkeep, but also provides an opportunity for the general public and veterans alike to lend a hand in preserving history and to join together for a weekend to socialize with one another. "The camaraderie between people with similar experiences is what I enjoy most about KIDD's Fall Field Days. It feels good to help preserve this amazing ship. Everyone should come out and enjoy this unique experience." -- Dan Katze, USS PURDY (DD-734) Loveland, CO "I love the smell of Navy ships. Paint, steel, and preservative. The smell of a Navy ship is the closest thing to going home for me." -- Frank Remkiewicz Sarasota, FL. "The great thing about the Field Days is not just the work accomplished on our behalf…it's the people. I learn how the ship worked from the men themselves, not just a manual. The ship truly comes alive with a crew aboard." -- Tim NesSmith USS KIDD Ship Superintendent Registration forms can be found below. Call 225-342-1942, x. 15 for more information.

1573365600 Family Events The USMC in Al Anbar Province, Iraq 2004-2008 USS KIDD Veterans Museum November 10, 2019 November 10, 2019 2:30 PM 4:00 PM On Sunday, November 10, 2019, at 2:30 p.m., the USS KIDD Veterans Museum will observe Veterans Day with a special KIDD Keynotes presentation. "Learning to Eat Soup with a Knife--The U.S. Marines in Al Anbar Province, Iraq (2004 - 2008)" by USMC veteran and author Michael Pitre will follow the Corps chronologically through some of the most bitterly contested areas of Iraq. The war in Iraq that began in March 2003 can be divided into two distinct phases. The first phase lasted slightly over a month, and ended with the defeat of Saddam Hussein's military and the collapse of his Ba'athist regime. The second phase, which lasted over five years, began as a general insurgency against U.S. forces before metastasizing into a sectarian civil war. U.S. Marines were tasked with quelling a vicious insurgency in Iraq's expansive Al Anbar Province during this second phase of the war. Al Anbar is Iraq's largest province, stretching from the western suburbs of Baghdad to the borders of Syria and Jordan. This theater of the Iraq War saw some of its heaviest fighting, including the first and second battles of Fallujah. Michael Pitre of New Orleans is a USMC veteran who served two combat deployments in Iraq. An LSU and Loyola graduate, he joined the Marine Corps in 2002 and wrapped up his service in 2010 with the rank of Captain. He is the author of "Fives and Twenty-Fives" (2014, Bloombury USA), a novel based on his experiences in Iraq. "Fives and Twenty-Fives" was a 2015 nominee for an Audie Award for Fiction and was selected as the 2015 Shared Read for the Ogden Honors College at Louisiana State University. Pitre has previously lectured at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. His interview with NPR journalist Stephanie Foo ("The Real Decoy", This American Life, December 02, 2016) discussed the difficulties that service members encounter when trying to describe combat experiences to friends and family members who have no common point of reference (https://www.thisamericanlife.org/603/once-more-with-feeling/act-two). During this lecture, Pitre will discuss the general timeline and key events of the campaign in Al Anbar, as well as personal recollections from his experiences there. Following the presentation, Michael will be available to sign any copies of his book that attendees wish to bring. KIDD Keynotes is a free lecture series hosted by the KIDD that gives members of our community an opportunity to learn about range of issues that impact us all and to find out ways that they can get involved.
1575698400 Downtown Events Pearl Harbor & WHITE ALDER Remembrance Ceremonies USS KIDD Veterans Museum December 7, 2019 December 7, 2019 12:00 PM 2:00 PM Over 2,500 lives were lost on Dec. 7, 1941 when Japanese fighter planes attacked the U.S. base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Rear Admiral Isaac Campbell Kidd, Sr., after whom the USS KIDD (DD-661) is named, and 45 men from Louisiana were among those killed on that fateful day. Join us for our annual Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Ceremony and help us honor and pay tribute to the service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice on this “date which will live in infamy,” as described by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Immediately following the ceremony, there will be a memorial observance hosted by the U.S. Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit Baton Rouge in honor of the crew of the USCGC WHITE ALDER. A river buoy tender, WHITE ALDER will sunk in an accidental collision in the Mississippi River near Baton Rouge on the night of December 07, 1968. As with the ARIZONA and the UTAH at Pearl Harbor, WHITE ALDER's crew lies entombed within their ship on the river bottom. We will never forget those who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms. #NeverForget #PearlHarbor #USSARIZONA #USSUTAH #DayOfInfamy #USCGCWHITEALDER #IsaacCKidd

1670392800 Downtown Events New evidence on Pearl Harbor attack at USS KIDD Veterans Museum USS KIDD Veterans Museum December 7, 2022 December 7, 2022 11:55 AM 2:00 PM Explorer Parks Stephenson to present new evidence on Pearl Harbor attack at USS KIDD Veterans Museum ceremony USS KIDD Veterans Museum will commemorate the 81st Anniversary of the Imperial Japanese Navy attack on Pearl Harbor with a remembrance service beginning at 11:55 a.m., December 7th, 2022. The Executive Director of the Museum, Parks Stephenson, will present new evidence on the history of the attack during his keynote speech. His work in identifying the remains and determining the actions of a Japanese Special Attack submarine that conducted a successful attack inside the harbor will be briefly described during the ceremony, with additional details to follow in a special podcast that will simultaneously go live on the USS KIDD Veterans Museum YouTube channel. In attendance will be active-duty sailors from the third U.S. Navy ship named for Rear Admiral Isaac C. Kidd, Sr., killed aboard the USS ARIZONA during the attack. The Navy’s newest USS KIDD, DDG-100, was commissioned in 2007 and is on active duty with Carrier Strike Group 9 in the Pacific. Her homeport is Everett, Washington. She is sending three sailors to Baton Rouge on the occasion of the anniversary: LSC Robert Matlock, ET1 Scott Love and DC3 Juan Cardonamarino. In addition to representing the current USS KIDD at her namesake’s site, the sailors will don coveralls and help with the elder ship’s preservation work during their stay in Louisiana. The new KIDD in that way will directly help maintain her namesake’s legacy. Music will be provided by the United States Marine Forces Reserve Band from New Orleans. Immediately following the Pearl Harbor Day service, there will be a memorial ceremony ashore for a more recent tragic event. The Coast Guard buoy tender WHITE ALDER was lost in a collision on the Mississippi River near White Castle on December 7, 1968. Like the crew of the ARIZONA, the WHITE ALDER’s crew is entombed aboard their ship on the river’s bottom. The remembrance service will begin at 11:55 a.m. The public is invited to attend at no charge. For more information, please visit the website at www.usskidd.com or call 225-342-1942.
1678683600 Downtown Events Port Visit of NAO TRINIDAD USS KIDD Veterans Museum March 13, 2023 March 25, 2023 9:30 AM 4:30 PM COST: $25/person special engagement admission, includes BOTH vessels (Ages 4 & under FREE). Tickets purchased on-site; no online purchases. DATES: March 13-25, 2023 (arrival date subject to sailing conditions and river traffic) HOURS OF OPERATION: 9:30 a.m. (opening) to 4:30 p.m. (last ticket sale). NOTE: Ticket sales will end each day at 4:30 p.m. to allow guests enough time to tour before the vessels close. DETAILS: The NAO TRINIDAD was the flagship of the Magellan-Elcano expedition, leading the first expedition to circumnavigate the world between 1519 and 1522. Leading a fleet of five ships from Seville, Spain, TRINIDAD aided in the discovery of the Strait of Magellan at the southern tip of South America and crossed the Pacific. The wear and tear of the voyage took its toll on the fleet, with only the NAO VICTORIA surviving to return to Spain. This detailed working replica of TRINIDAD was built by the Fundación Nao Victoria of Seville, Spain (named for the surviving vessel of the voyage) in 2018. A floating classroom, she teaches visitors of the technology used during the Age of Exploration. This is the third collaboration between the USS KIDD Veterans Museum and Fundación Nao Victoria, with prior visits by the Seveille-based museum ships EL GALEÓN ANDALUCÍA (2016) and NAO SANTA MARIA (2019). USS KIDD Veterans Museum and Fundación Nao Victoria are both non-profit educational organizations.

1683694800 Downtown Events Pirates! The Story Behind the Pirate of the Pacific USS KIDD Veterans Museum May 10, 2023 May 10, 2023 9:30 AM 3:30 PM The USS KIDD Veterans Museum is opening a new permanent exhibit inside the Museum building this Saturday, March 11th, 2023. Entitled, “Pirates! The Story Behind the Pirate of the Pacific”, the exhibit is directed toward pirate enthusiasts of all ages and highlights the role that pirates have played in the USS KIDD’s history. The exhibit is housed within a full-scale replica of a 18th-Century pirate ship’s gun deck. As visitors walk through the deck, they will learn the story of Captain William Kidd, described by historians as “America’s most ruthless buccaneer”. But was he actually a pirate or a pirate hunter? Facts are put up against fictional assumptions about pirates…how true are the public’s assumptions about pirates? As the story continues, visitors will learn how the fictional portrayal of Captain Kidd, popularized by Hollywood in the 1940s, inspired the World War 2 crew of the newly commissioned USS KIDD (DD-661) to adopt a pirate identity. Pirate artifacts from the USS KIDD (DD-661) and her namesakes, USS KIDD (DDG-993) and the currently-serving USS KIDD (DDG-100) will demonstrate the pirate legacy that has been passed down from the 1940s to today. The last story to be told before exiting the exhibit will be that of Jean Lefitte, “Louisiana’s Pirate.” Visitors will learn about Lafitte’s role in shaping New Orleans and southern Louisiana into what both are today. Adult - $14.63 Veterans (With ID) - $12.54 Seniors (60+) - $12.54 Children (5-12) - $10.45 Tax Included in Prices

Entitled, “Pirates! The Story Behind the Pirate of the Pacific”, the exhibit is directed toward pirate enthusiasts of all ages and highlights the role that pirates have played in the USS KIDD’s history. The exhibit is housed within a full-scale replica of a 18th-Century pirate ship’s gun deck. As visitors walk through the deck, they will learn the story of Captain William Kidd, described by historians as “America’s most ruthless buccaneer”. But was he actually a pirate or a pirate hunter? Facts are put up against fictional assumptions about pirates…how true are the public’s assumptions about pirates? As the story continues, visitors will learn how the fictional portrayal of Captain Kidd, popularized by Hollywood in the 1940s, inspired the World War 2 crew of the newly commissioned USS KIDD (DD-661) to adopt a pirate identity. Pirate artifacts from the USS KIDD (DD-661) and her namesakes, USS KIDD (DDG-993) and the currently-serving USS KIDD (DDG-100) will demonstrate the pirate legacy that has been passed down from the 1940s to today. The last story to be told before exiting the exhibit will be that of Jean Lefitte, “Louisiana’s Pirate.” Visitors will learn about Lafitte’s role in shaping New Orleans and southern Louisiana into what both are today.

The Story Behind the Pirate of the Pacific”, the exhibit is directed toward pirate enthusiasts of all ages and highlights the role that pirates have played in the USS KIDD’s history. The exhibit is housed within a full-scale replica of a 18th-Century pirate ship’s gun deck. As visitors walk through the deck, they will learn the story of Captain William Kidd, described by historians as “America’s most ruthless buccaneer”. But was he actually a pirate or a pirate hunter? Facts are put up against fictional assumptions about pirates…how true are the public’s assumptions about pirates? As the story continues, visitors will learn how the fictional portrayal of Captain Kidd, popularized by Hollywood in the 1940s, inspired the World War 2 crew of the newly commissioned USS KIDD (DD-661) to adopt a pirate identity. Pirate artifacts from the USS KIDD (DD-661) and her namesakes, USS KIDD (DDG-993) and the currently-serving USS KIDD (DDG-100) will demonstrate the pirate legacy that has been passed down from the 1940s to today. The last story to be told before exiting the exhibit will be that of Jean Lefitte, “Louisiana’s Pirate.” Visitors will learn about Lafitte’s role in shaping New Orleans and southern Louisiana into what both are today.

The Story Behind the Pirate of the Pacific”, the exhibit is directed toward pirate enthusiasts of all ages and highlights the role that pirates have played in the USS KIDD’s history. The exhibit is housed within a full-scale replica of a 18th-Century pirate ship’s gun deck. As visitors walk through the deck, they will learn the story of Captain William Kidd, described by historians as “America’s most ruthless buccaneer”. But was he actually a pirate or a pirate hunter? Facts are put up against fictional assumptions about pirates…how true are the public’s assumptions about pirates? As the story continues, visitors will learn how the fictional portrayal of Captain Kidd, popularized by Hollywood in the 1940s, inspired the World War 2 crew of the newly commissioned USS KIDD (DD-661) to adopt a pirate identity. Pirate artifacts from the USS KIDD (DD-661) and her namesakes, USS KIDD (DDG-993) and the currently-serving USS KIDD (DDG-100) will demonstrate the pirate legacy that has been passed down from the 1940s to today. The last story to be told before exiting the exhibit will be that of Jean Lefitte, “Louisiana’s Pirate.” Visitors will learn about Lafitte’s role in shaping New Orleans and southern Louisiana into what both are today.

The Story Behind the Pirate of the Pacific”, the exhibit is directed toward pirate enthusiasts of all ages and highlights the role that pirates have played in the USS KIDD’s history. The exhibit is housed within a full-scale replica of a 18th-Century pirate ship’s gun deck. As visitors walk through the deck, they will learn the story of Captain William Kidd, described by historians as “America’s most ruthless buccaneer”. But was he actually a pirate or a pirate hunter? Facts are put up against fictional assumptions about pirates…how true are the public’s assumptions about pirates? As the story continues, visitors will learn how the fictional portrayal of Captain Kidd, popularized by Hollywood in the 1940s, inspired the World War 2 crew of the newly commissioned USS KIDD (DD-661) to adopt a pirate identity. Pirate artifacts from the USS KIDD (DD-661) and her namesakes, USS KIDD (DDG-993) and the currently-serving USS KIDD (DDG-100) will demonstrate the pirate legacy that has been passed down from the 1940s to today. The last story to be told before exiting the exhibit will be that of Jean Lefitte, “Louisiana’s Pirate.” Visitors will learn about Lafitte’s role in shaping New Orleans and southern Louisiana into what both are today.

The Story Behind the Pirate of the Pacific”, the exhibit is directed toward pirate enthusiasts of all ages and highlights the role that pirates have played in the USS KIDD’s history. The exhibit is housed within a full-scale replica of a 18th-Century pirate ship’s gun deck. As visitors walk through the deck, they will learn the story of Captain William Kidd, described by historians as “America’s most ruthless buccaneer”. But was he actually a pirate or a pirate hunter? Facts are put up against fictional assumptions about pirates…how true are the public’s assumptions about pirates? As the story continues, visitors will learn how the fictional portrayal of Captain Kidd, popularized by Hollywood in the 1940s, inspired the World War 2 crew of the newly commissioned USS KIDD (DD-661) to adopt a pirate identity. Pirate artifacts from the USS KIDD (DD-661) and her namesakes, USS KIDD (DDG-993) and the currently-serving USS KIDD (DDG-100) will demonstrate the pirate legacy that has been passed down from the 1940s to today. The last story to be told before exiting the exhibit will be that of Jean Lefitte, “Louisiana’s Pirate.” Visitors will learn about Lafitte’s role in shaping New Orleans and southern Louisiana into what both are today.

The exhibit is housed within a full-scale replica of a 18th-Century pirate ship’s gun deck. As visitors walk through the deck, they will learn the story of Captain William Kidd, described by historians as “America’s most ruthless buccaneer”. But was he actually a pirate or a pirate hunter? Facts are put up against fictional assumptions about pirates…how true are the public’s assumptions about pirates? As the story continues, visitors will learn how the fictional portrayal of Captain Kidd, popularized by Hollywood in the 1940s, inspired the World War 2 crew of the newly commissioned USS KIDD (DD-661) to adopt a pirate identity. Pirate artifacts from the USS KIDD (DD-661) and her namesakes, USS KIDD (DDG-993) and the currently-serving USS KIDD (DDG-100) will demonstrate the pirate legacy that has been passed down from the 1940s to today. The last story to be told before exiting the exhibit will be that of Jean Lefitte, “Louisiana’s Pirate.” Visitors will learn about Lafitte’s role in shaping New Orleans and southern Louisiana into what both are today.

As visitors walk through the deck, they will learn the story of Captain William Kidd, described by historians as “America’s most ruthless buccaneer”. But was he actually a pirate or a pirate hunter? Facts are put up against fictional assumptions about pirates…how true are the public’s assumptions about pirates? As the story continues, visitors will learn how the fictional portrayal of Captain Kidd, popularized by Hollywood in the 1940s, inspired the World War 2 crew of the newly commissioned USS KIDD (DD-661) to adopt a pirate identity. Pirate artifacts from the USS KIDD (DD-661) and her namesakes, USS KIDD (DDG-993) and the currently-serving USS KIDD (DDG-100) will demonstrate the pirate legacy that has been passed down from the 1940s to today.

About Venue

The USS KIDD Veterans Museum honors the men and women from Louisiana who have served in our nation’s armed forces, and educates the public on their sacrifices and those of their families. Our two-story museum building houses many interesting exhibits, bookended by two aircraft located on the exterior grounds. Our centerpiece exhibit is the Fletcher-class destroyer USS KIDD (DD-661), painstakingly restored to her World War II configuration, a veteran of World War II, the Korean War, and the Cold War. Through KIDD, take a step back in time and learn a little history, art, and science and see what life was like before the digital age.

Honoring the men and women of the United States Armed Forces.
