Paul Green Multimedia Award

The USS Stokes (AKA-68) website was awarded the Paul Green Multimedia Award by The North Carolina Society of Historians, Inc. on 13 October 2007.

Judges' Collective Comments:

"We visited this phenomenal website and were greeted by a fabulous black and white photograph of the USS Stokes (AKA-68), the subject of the site. Web pages to click on to include: an introductory page; the history of the USS Stokes; a 1944 news article regarding the ship; crew input; Iwo Jima; raising the flag at Iwo Jima; crossing the equator; and a page we thoroughly enjoyed....crew photographs. There is also a page of links associated with either the ship, World War II, or soldiers who have died in various wars throughout the years who are from Stokes County, NC.

This is a truly excellent site. It’s concise, interesting, professionally setup and is easy to maneuver."
