Ship's Bell

 I would like to personally thank Ms. Karen France of the Naval Historical Center and our very own shipmate, BM3 John Huard for coordinating the search of the USS Monticello's ship's bell. The polishing of the bell was coordinated by Conservator Catherine Valentour. 

Thanks to all involve in this effort. BRAVO ZULU!
