The mission of the USS John F Kennedy Project is to preserve and interpret their principal artifact, the super carrier USS John F Kennedy in order to educate and entertain the public while serving as a constant reminder to future generations of the sacrifices of those who have gone before. The carrier will be the principal element of a self-sufficient Heritage and Technology Park in Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island.  Read more at the USS John F Kennedy Project web site.

I was attached with VQ-2, out of Rota Spain and cruised the Med. on "Big John" in 1980 and it seems that I went on board her again in 1981, but not sure. I'm like you David, sad to see her go. Seeing as she was the last conventional carrier, she deserves to be made into a museum. There's a ton of history to be told about her.

To my JFK shipmates, efforts are underway to save our ship as a museum like the USS Intrepid and USS Midway

I was on the Big John 80-81. Heard she was decommissioned last year, sad to see her retire.
