"In April, 2011,when the decision was made to offer Bill White an Honorary Membership in the USS Intrepid Association, I did have one important concern; Bill was no longer President of the Intrepid Museum and was not a familiar figure to our out of town board members," noted Richard L. Mills, President, USS Intrepid Association. "My concern was quickly put to rest when, after presenting my proposal to the Board of Directors, and, with all in full agreement, a motion was made, seconded, and accepted unanimously. To my knowledge, the only unanimous vote in the twenty-seven year history of the USS Intrepid Association."

Bill White's determination and dedication to the history and former crewmembers of USS Intrepid that led to Intrepid Museum becoming the National Historic Landmark it is today.
