This article focuses on factors effecting the U.S. Navy to preserve its heritage. For Sea Service professionals, a better understanding of naval history provides deeper insights into current and future naval problems. Despite historians' best efforts, however, the leadership has placed such little value on naval history that most of the Navy's historical activities are under funded, and now some of its official museums are threatened with closure. Only three of the Navy's dozen museums have reached accreditation status. Even the official records are not being kept properly. Present historians have a difficult time learning what the service is doing today, and their achievements may never be known to future generations.
