Steve that's a great shot of the Enterprise.

When the Congress controls the funding the naming if "requested" will be honored.


Thus the USS Mendel Rivers SSN-686 and USS William H. Bates SSN-680, notable fish species.


Yeah.

I wish we had kept naming our CVs after battles rather than presidents. I rather liked the naming scheme of person = DD, city = cruiser, state = BB, etc.


Well president-politicians write cheques... battles and cities don't


Lol, true.. so i sign constuction of CV so she can hold my name (constuction approved 1 year after my end of presidency).

We never did have that naming convention for carriers. It was always mixed.

Langley, Enterprise, Wasp, Hornet, Boxer, Bon Homme Richard, Cabot, FDR, Ranger, etc. were none of them battle names.

The use of states is hopelessly corrupted now with BBs, Ohio-class, and now a whole class of SSNs.

For awhile cruisers were famous battles, but for a long time before and since so were large amphibs.


Shhhh! I familiarized myself with the WW2-era USN before I learned (a small bit) about other parts of naval history. Was it really different from that in those days, other than for CVs? It seemed to hold true for DDs, CAs/CLs, and BBs.

As well as fish for subs. I always liked that one.

Great shot Steve! That is how I will always remember also! Damn shame that ships and people get old.

I think the naming conventions were in cement except for carriers, yes. I don't know any submariners who wouldn't prefer fish names, for SSNs at least. SSBNs have always been a political fight right from the start with the fights over using Civil War persons.
