Gov. Bobby Jindal appointed Thursday three new board members to the commission that oversees the USS Kidd museum, whose finances were questioned by auditors earlier this week.

Jindal named three former Navy men to the Louisiana Naval War Memorial Commission.

The Commission serves to control, maintain, and exhibit the World War II destroyer USS Kidd in Baton Rouge.

State Rep. Franklin Foil, R-Baton Rouge, was a captain for the Judge Advocate Generals Corp of the U.S. Navy. Foil said he was recommended by commission member Henson Moore, the former congressman who was instrumental in bringing the Kidd to Baton Rouge as a floating museum.

Jindal also named Robert Hawthorne Jr., a founder of the Baton Rouge law firm Kean Miller LLP.
