Life On An Aircraft Carrier

The website We the Mighty offers a brief video of what it is like serving on an aircraft carrier.

You can watch the video via the below link:

It was basically the same when I served on the aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk during the Vietnam War - 1970-1971 - when I was a young man.

Note: The top photo is of the aircraft carrier USS Eisenhower and the above photo is of the USS Kitty Hawk.


  1. Thank you for your posting. You provoke many good and not-so-good memories (Coral Sea, Ranger, Kitty Hawk). No one who has not lived the experience can really appreciate the experience. However, that being said, I am glad I was there then rather than now because too much has changed. How is that for a cryptic statement!

  2. Tim,

    Thanks for sharing, old shipmate.
