On April 19, 2005 the US NAVY had the USS AMERICA CV-66 taken out into the Atlantic Ocean for live testing to see what it will take to sink a super carrier. She will be sunk in 6,000 feet of salt water never to be seen again.
We want her name to continue to be proudly displayed on the next carrier to be built around 2007 and be commissioned around 2014.
The USS America Museum Foundation is dedicated to all patriotic Americans and especially to all the men and women that have served proudly in the United States armed forces. A special thanks goes out to the sailors who served on the USS America, throughout her glorious 31 years of service to the greatest nation in the world.
The USS America helped preserve the rights and freedoms all citizens of the United States enjoy. The foundation is dedicated toward preserving the USS America and its long and proud history. The foundation is actively petitioning Congressmen and Senators and the Department of Defense to donate the USS America to the foundation for preservation as a living museum. This will give all Americans the ability to visit and walk through the greatest aircraft carrier to ever sail the seas. The Foundation is actively trying to acquire a port for the use of the USS America. However, the Foundation has recently run in to some problems with acquiring the USS America itself. The DOD has decided instead of allowing the Foundation to use the ship as a living museum, to sell her for scrap.
Please join the Foundation in writing your Congressmen and Senators, letting them know that you think this beautiful ship would serve this nation better as a living museum instead of scrap metal. If the Foundation cannot acquire the ship it will still actively try and preserve as much of the ship and its history as possible. It will try to obtain at least one aircraft of each type that served on the ship and as much other unique items that were on the ship.
