USS Texas

I don't know if this has already been brought up, but the other day the USS Texas started taking on a lot more water and ended up with a significant list to starboard. She always leaking but her hull is deteriorating badly and there isn't enough money to give her the repairs she desperately needs, and there's a possibility(despite the efforts of all the volunteers) that the bottom might fall out and that'll be that. 

Being a museum ship, she relies heavily on donations made by the public. Anyone who can contribute something would be very useful to helping preserve her. You can donate here: http://battleshiptexas.org/

Furthermore, there is a facebook page called "Save the Battleship USS Texas", that you can see all the latest updates on what is happening. 


My suggestion though is why not have the USS Texas available in the premium shop and when you buy her, a percentage of the sale gets donated to the actual ship? Or some special wargaming promotion aimed at directly helping the ship?

At the end of the day, the people who makes this game and the people who play it clearly have an interest in warships, and surely the plight of the last remaining Dreadnought would be a unifying cause?
