I personally loathe our military and wish we could get along without them, but since there are lots of people out there who hate us and I'm afraid of bad guys hurting me, I guess we have to have those mean men in uniform.

On the old CVA's .. are there any still running under flag are did we change over 100% to CVN's.
For me the Forrestal will always be the definative CVA, Just like 65 will be the definative CVN..

But the one were both thinking of is the sidewinder (or some air to air) that was launched cross deck, this is the one that McCain was sitting in his A4 when it happened.. I can't remember the ship, maybe it was the Forrestal.. For some reason didnt sound right, but im a land brown shoe.. got sea sick taking the launch from Sangley to Manila.. Whats this about you being kicked out of the embassy in Manila by the way... Thinking theres a san mago in this story somewhere..

We have 11 operational CVN's. Latest is the George H.W. Bush, CVN-77, which is the last of the Nimitz Class. The next will be the Gerald R. Ford, which is a new class.
