The USS Alabama Crewmate Program was established in 1967 as an ambassador program for the newly created USS ALABAMA Battleship Memorial Park. The program has offered more than 250 young women the opportunity to serve in this position and receive scholarships to the college of their choice. The crewmates have dedicated thousands of hours of community service to both Battleship Memorial Park and the state of Alabama.
