Finally!!! USS John F Kennedy (CVN-79) Docks to The Port and Begin To Big Mission

"I was not aware of the new one. The original CV-67 was in Cuba for her shakedown cruise when I was there. I believe the last I heard she was still in the mothball fleet at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, unless she has been scrapped. There was also some…"
