Excuse me, but this can't be right. There are dozens of ATS members who absolutely insisted the USS Enterprise was to be the cause of a "False Flag" event as it was sunk "by the Iranians" (cough!) in the Strait of Hormuz, thus disrupting oil shipments and being the cause of WW III. .

Where are all these ATS'rs who will set you right?

Crickets.


Jesus C,...Ohh....now I sit right alright..

Funny story. I posted this on ATS before.
My step dad was a petty officer on the USS Enterprise. Back in the day they would throw their trash bags overboard. Well he went to throw a bag and the drawstring caught his wrist. He plunged off of the Enterprise. They rescued him though.

Nice. We still throw our trash over the side. No plastic though.

I never officially served aboard the Big-E but back in 1998 as a young Marine pilot I spent several weeks aboard her to get my night carrier qualifications.

So I'm currently on the USS Enterprise and she will be officially inactivated on the first. It's a crazy ship with a very storied history. Anyway, curious if there are current or former members of the crew on here. Im curious what reactor department was like back in the day


So where are you guys going to go? Or will you stay on the deactivated ship for a spell? I assume from your avie that you've been in anwhile. Made CPO yet?

Uhhh last deployment we did a bunch of really cool stuff. One time we were having an all hands call on the flight deck and Iran decided to fly a p-3 over our flight deck. Like right over and low. The handler was like," if you look to the left you can see an Iranian p-3. Everyone give them your best greeting." so we flipped them off.


Keeping up diplomatic relations I see.

Old ship. Its about time. She can't float forever..

Everyone in reactor and engineering gets to stay for the defueling and breaking down the plants. All the topsiders will go to other ships or shore commands. Uhhh I've been in for four and a half years, I am currently a second class taking the first class exam this march

I read a cold war story somewhere about a Soviet ELINT trawler customarily shadowing the Enterprise battlegroup fishing through the garbage, looking for intelligence material that may have been carelessly disguarded.

One day the crew of one of the Destroyer's in the CVBG picket thought they would have some fun and gathered up all the old porn on the ship and tossed it overboard with the trash.

Supposedly the Soviet crew repaid the favor by somehow floating a case of vodka for the Destroyer crew to pick up.

A sea story, I know, but it sounded too good not to share.

Good news the name Enterprise will live on as a Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) to be launched in 2013.

I was hoping they would name one of the Fords after her, but I hadn't heard anything beyond the first two names.

Yeah, just announced today. Good to know a big E will still be out there.

Personally I think they should take a piece of the current Enterprise and put it somewhere on the new ship. I think they should do that with all the Enterprise ships. A way of keeping history alive, with all that she has done to change history.

They will do that. The crew put together a time capsule of memorablia for the next ship. All the parts are from the CVN-65.

I thought this a fitting coda to the Enterprise, CVN-65. I can't get it to embed:

Over 100,000 veterans served on her over 51 years.

Kinda reminds me of the USS Missouri. Old ship past it's prime. I built a model of the Missouri in my younger days. What a battleship.

The Enterprise was the first carrier I ever saw, the first carrier I ever set foot on and the first one I ever sailed on. I was at North Island at the time, in a training squadron and we did a five day run for CQ's on her.
