Maritime Administration

Maritime Administration The Maritime Administration is the agency within the U.S. Department of Transportation dealing with waterborne transportation.

77 years ago today, the Allied Expeditionary Force launched its D-Day assault, the largest seaborne invasion in history. As General Eisenhower told them, "We will accept nothing less than full victory." They, and those who followed, ultimately defeated German forces, sparking the end of WWII. We are forever in their debt. #DDay

MEMORIAL DAY STATEMENT FROM ACTING MARITIME ADMINISTRATOR LUCINDA LESSLEY

Today, we honor all who served America’s Armed Forces, including our merchant mariners and pay special tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Throughout our history, merchant mariners have risked their lives to deliver the equipment and supplies necessary to enable our Armed Forces to secure victory. Many lost their lives while conducting these vital missions—often with little means of protecting themselves or their ships. Today, America continues to rely on merchant mariners who crew the U.S.-flag fleet and deliver for our military—wherever and whenever needed.

This Memorial Day, as we solemnly remember those who have passed before us in service to our country, we also celebrate their lives, their spirit, and their willingness to do what needed to be done to protect our democracy and the freedoms we all cherish.

A National Maritime Day Message from the Acting Maritime Administrator:

On May 22, we commemorate and celebrate the extraordinary contributions of our U.S. Merchant Marine and maritime industry to our economy and our national defense. As we mark National Maritime Day 2021, the accomplishments of the maritime industry over the past year amaze me. At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, uncertainty rocked our country. As we adopted the measures needed to slow the spread of COVID-19, our economy was profoundly affected. However, even in the face of these unprecedented challenges, the maritime industry pressed on—as it has always done in our Nation’s service by the service of individual mariners, port and shipyard workers.

Americans count on you to move our cargoes. You ensured medical supplies reached their destinations and you kept store shelves stocked. Workers in the maritime industry – these critical transportation workers - are unsung heroes of the past year and we are forever grateful for your spirit and dedication.

Today, our economy is reopening as vaccinations have become widely available, and our maritime industry having never stopped, is working even harder to meet the surging consumer demand driving unprecedented cargo volumes at our Nation’s ports. Our maritime industry also continues to provide essential global sealift capacity in support of our Armed Forces.

On behalf of Secretary Buttigieg and everyone at the Department of Transportation and the Maritime Administration, thank you for all you’ve done and continue to do for our country. May you have fair winds and following seas. Happy Maritime Day!

LOLA AND THE WIPER By: Gordon L. Peck, Sr. Written aboard the S.S. Del Norte, 1954 A bunch of the boys were whooping it up In the Engine Department saloon. The box they call a radio Was blaring a Latin tune. When out of the engine room, three decks below, And into the din and glare There stumbled a Wiper, fresh from the bilge, Dog-dirty, with grease in his hair. He looked like a man who has lived in Hell, With hardly the price of two cans, Yet he dumped a whole case of beer on the deck And handed out drinks for all hands. His eyes went rubbering 'round the room And he seemed in a kind of a daze, Till a beat-up old señorita fell In the way of his wandering gaze. The seat next to her was vacant; There was no one on the stool-- So the wiper staggered over And flopped down there like a fool. In a torn T-shirt that was glazed with dirt He sat, and I saw him sway...... He clutched that gal in his talon hands--- Migawd, how that man could play! Next moment a tremor ran through him, And out of the chair leaped he--- "I must be half shot; I almost forgot To write up this evening's O.T!"
You are my inspiration.
