    [02] 'Liberty Ship' comes to Greece

    The transfer of the last remaining American ?Liberty Ship,? the "Arthur M. Huddell", for use in Greece as a floating museum was sealed on Wednesday during a ceremony on the sidelines of the Posidonia 2008 international shipping exhibition in Piraeus.

    The top US maritime official, Maritime Administrator Sean Connaughton, signed a memorandum of understanding for the transfer of the vessel with Merchant Marine Minister George Voulgarakis, in the presence of US ambassador to Greece Daniel Speckhard.

    Also present at the signing ceremony was Rhode Island State Sen. Leonidas Raptakis, a prominent Greek-American who championed the ?Liberty Ship? project. In addition, several Greek officials and ship-owners who have played vital roles in advancing the project were recognised, including Deputy Minister Panos Kammenos, Spyros Polemis and Vassilis Konstantakopoulos.
