    Never been on that exact ship but I have been on the USS Wasp, USS Kearsarge, USS Iwo Jima, USS Bataan. Lots of great memories on those ships, and off the ship from more than 9 years in.

    Thanks for sharing the pics. Dameon. I was stationed aboard a destroyer and we spent a lot of time providing escort duty for several carriers. I was a gunners mate and spent many hours sitting in the forward 5-inch gun mount watching them practice there take offs and landings. It was a awesome thing to see!!!

    Thanks Dameon for the pictures, they sure bring back old memories. I was the hook runner on the Franklin D Roosevelt back in the early 60s. Stay safe buddy.
