Just 37 years ago, a small group of recipients of Admiral certificates, issued by the Governors of Nebraska, gathered in Kearney on April 1, 1986 (in a blizzard!!!!) to start an organization to promote Nebraska tourism and enjoy the camaraderie of being Admirals! Our projects have included scholarships to juniors at UNL in their tourism degree programs (since 1992), welcoming the sailors from the USS NEBRASKA SSB739 when they visit the “home state” each year, sending special holiday ornaments to the submarine and USS OMAHA and all four Veterans Homes in Nebraska and generally learning about our great state and sharing our enthusiasm for Nebraska with others!  The auction of gifts and special memorabilia will help raise funds for our scholarship program for next year.
