USS America Tribute   The ship I served onboard This is the ship I served onboard from 1978 to 1981. She served the Mediterranean Sea area primarily. You will see she was decommissioned, her final demise was to be sunk by our own military because it was one of the most recent carrier class so they wanted to see what it would take to bring her down:(

What a beautiful carrier, it's sad that they would sink her when she's still seaworthy.

She was seaworthy, but she wasn't nuclear, to retrofit was too expensive.

Gas mileage on a carrier? 10 inches to a gallon! Think about it, 5,000 men, 90 aircraft let alone all the steel it's made from!

I was in VF-33 aboard her in 1968 it was quite a shock to me when i learned they sank her!

A fitting end for a fighting lady. I'm proud that my grandson serves aboard the USS Ronald Reagan, CVN76. God bless all the troops, past and present.
