We took a boat ride to Fort Sumter with a group of lovely people and a group of antsy school kids. Is it necessary for everyone to make squeaking noises with their shoes? The answer is yes. Anyway, after visiting the site of the shot that started the Civil War, we headed back and got aboard the USS Yorktown to check out the museum.
- In 1958, Yorktown was designated an anti-submarine aircraft carrier (CVS), and would later earn 5 battle stars for service off Vietnam (1965-1968).
- The ship also recovered the Apollo 8 astronauts and capsule (December 1968).
- Yorktown was decommissioned in 1970 and placed in reserve.
