Cutaway drawing of Fletcher-class destroyer.
In October 2011, the Destroyer History Foundation announced the establishment of a collection to be housed courtesy of Tin Can Sailors in its facility at Somerset, Massachusetts. The collection will include artifacts provided by shipmates and others relevant to destroyer history.

The first planned accession is the collection of Curt Clark, Secretary-Treasurer of the American APD Corporation, the organization of shipmates of the flush deck destroyers converted as fast transports known as the “Green Dragons.” It will mark the beginning of a long-term effort to house artifacts for which no other suitable home has been found.
