Baltimore Sun: Cruise on Liberty ship a reminder that freedom is not free [Eagle Archives] September 24, 2015 By Kevin E. Dayhoff


Baltimore Sun: Cruise on Liberty ship a reminder that freedom is not free [Eagle Archives] September 24, 2015 By Kevin E. Dayhoff http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-ce-archives-liberty-ship-0927-20150921-story.html
My latest article is about the Liberty ship, the S.S. John W. Brown. This was absolutely fascinating to research. I will be going on the upcoming veteran's cruise and can't wait. Enjoy the article here: http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-ce-archives-liberty-ship-0927-20150921-story.html

On Oct. 3 about 20 veterans from Carroll County will commemorate Veterans Day and the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II early this year, as they set sail on the World War II Liberty ship, the S.S. John W. Brown.

According to Phil Mullikin, a volunteer for Project Liberty Ship and a member of the Community Foundation of Carroll County, “I teamed-up with the Kahlert Foundation to develop a grant to take Carroll County vets on this cruise. For me it is killing two birds with one stone, I’m helping to raise money for the preservation of the ship, and I’m doing something for the vets in the county. November weather can be pretty unpleasant so the cruise is made in October.”

Volunteering is nothing new for Mullikin, who also serves on the board of ‘Catherine’s Cause,’ an anti-drunk driving organization. The Kahlert Foundation is a Carroll County organization that supports veterans, and youth, education and health care initiatives and programs.

In a recent phone interview, Mullikin said that he has volunteered for Project Liberty Ship for four years. He was recruited by chief officer Larry Knapp, a fellow Delaware River pilot. A river pilot himself, Mullikin explained that he “worked with the Delaware River Pilots for about 13 years, after spending 35 years at sea as a merchant seaman. I ended my career at the rank of captain.”

Volunteering for his adopted Carroll County is nothing new for Mullikin, who also serves on the board of Catherine’s Cause, an anti-drunk driving organization. Mullikin grew-up in a Maryland eastern shore family. I’ve lived in Carroll County for almost 35 years. I got here as quickly as I could.

Mullikin said that he got involved with the restoration of the Liberty ship because his hobby is carpentry. “But I started my work on the John Brown as temporary relief chief officer. However, I did not want to continue to do that because that is what I did all my life. But my ‘unlimited master’s license upon ocean,’ allows me to make ocean transits should that need arise for the Brown.”


Timed just about midway between two dates that have significant meaning for veterans in this country, approximately 20 veterans from Carroll County will board a ship of that has also has significant importance.

On Oct. 3, the county residents will commemorate Veterans Day (Nov. 11) and Sept. 2, 1945 official surrender by Japan that ended World War II by coming aboard the World War II Liberty ship, the S.S. John W. Brown.

Philip W. Mullikin, a volunteer for Project Liberty Ship and a member of the Community Foundation of Carroll County said he, "teamed up with the Kahlert Foundation to develop a grant to take Carroll County vets on this cruise."

The Kahlert Foundation is a Carroll County organization that supports veterans, and youth, education and health care initiatives and programs.

"For me it is killing two birds with one stone," Mullikin said. "I'm helping to raise money for the preservation of the ship, and I'm doing something for the vets in the county."

As for the timing, "November weather can be pretty unpleasant so the cruise is made in October," he said.

The S.S. Brown website explains that the cargo ship, built in Baltimore, is "one of only two remaining, fully operational Liberty ships that participated in World War II. The first of the 2,711 Liberty ships was the SS Patrick Henry, launched on Sept. 27, 1941…"


Baltimore news reporter Mike Schuh was also a big help with this article. See his recent article here: Mike Schuh WJZ-TV Baltimore Org. Dedicated to Preserving History, Provides Unique Cruise September 16, 2015 http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2015/09/16/baltimore-org-dedicated-to-preserving-history-provides-unique-cruise/




BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Project Liberty Ship, which is a Baltimore-based non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the last remaining troop transport from WWII as a living memorial, is providing visitors with an opportunity to tour it and go on a cruise. WJZ’s Mike Schuh reports, the organization is a rare link to the past and needs your help…”
