Proceeds help support the Higgins Boat Project.


We are collecting stories and information from coxswains and crew of

ANY World War II, Korean or Vietnam War era small amphibious boats

(LCP(L), LCS, LCP(R), LCVP, LCM). Information you have will help us

tell the story of the war through the eyes of the crews who ran these great boats.

Please email LT Duckworth directly at


We're also looking for photographs of Higgins boats in action  We particularly seek photos of the earlier boats - the Eurekas, the LCPs and the LCP(L)s. Anyone who can help with this, please contact us at

The National D-Day Museum is at the corner of "Andrew Higgins Drive" and Magazine St. as Howard Ave. from Lee Circle to the river has been renamed to honor Andrew Higgins.

On May 4, 2000, Congressman William Jefferson introduced a bill (H.R. 4384) authorizing Congress to award gold medals to the family of Andrew Jackson Higgins and the wartime employees of Higgins Industries, in recognition of their contributions to the Nation and to the Allied victory in World War II.  Click here to see the full text of the legislation.
