    Please pass this around to anyone who might be interested. My documentary thesis for my recent Master’s in Media Studies will air on the City University of New York’s Cable Channel, CUNY-TV, on Saturday, January 16, at 6:30 PM. Entitled The Sinking of USS Princeton, it is the story of six survivors of a little-known battle to save the last American fleet carrier sunk in World War II. It runs 30 minutes. Special thanks to Tansal Arnas, cinematographer, who traveled with me around the Caribbean and across the US, and Terry Meyers, my wife and editor, to whom I owe everything, especially my undying love. And also my parents and brother helped too! It was really a family affair.

    In related news, the Independence Seaport Museum in Philadelphia, PA has endorsed the project, and will screen the completed series for their patrons. Their letter of support will help raise funds to finish editing. I received word today that the “letter is in the mail.”

    More information about USS Princeton will be found at http://www.ninesisters.com/

    Thanks,
    Jason

    I'm sure that is a possibility sometime in the future, but I really do not know. I first found out about this project thru the Tiger Rag, the Princeton Association's newsletter I received in November. In it, is an order form for purchasing the DVD. I uploaded the image in my albums, and if anyone is interested, it can be printed from the image. The DVD is only $10 US, which is basically a donation to the project.

    I have the same problem that you have, tho....I am 1000 miles from NY, and doubt I will see it, either.

    The Nine Sisters were the 9 Independence Class Light Carriers that were built during WWII. George H.W. Bush was based on the USS San Jacinto, which was one of the sisters.
