The Great Navy of the State of Nebraska
Gerald Ford was appointed an Admiral in the Great Navy of the State of Nebraska on July 12, 1962. This honorary title bestowed on prominent individuals by the Governor of Nebraska is the state’s highest honor. The designation of Admiral, rather than another high-ranking military title, is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the fact that the state is landlocked.
The exhibit Taking the Seas: The Rise of the American Aircraft Carrier opens on Monday, July 14, at the Ford Presidential Museum. We’ll be posting materials related to the exhibit and Gerald R. Ford’s service in the U.S. Navy over the next few months.
