USS Kitty Hawk traveled the world in support of US military actions and relations building, undergoing countless exercises and participating in the Vietnam War as well as the future invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan. After nearly 50 years of active service, the Kitty Hawk was relieved of duty and set in reserve status by the United States Navy, her place taken by a newer, more powerful breed of supercarrier. The vessel proved her worth during her tenure of the seas and went down in American naval history as one of the best of her kind.
The USS Kitty Hawk was ordered on October 1st, 1955 and laid down by New York Shipbuilding Corporation on December 27th, 1956. She was launched on May 21st, 1960 and officially commissioned on April 29th, 1961 with Captain William F. Bringle at the helm. The vessel made her official homeport at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard out of Bremerton, Washington but saw much activity through San Diego while also operating offshore of the Yokosuka Naval Base at Yokosuka, Japan. The Kitty Hawk was ultimately replace in the latter position by the USS George Washington before returning stateside for decommissioning in late 2008. The Kitty Hawk was known under the nickname of “[email protected] Kitty” and was the second US Naval vessel to be named after Kitty Hawk, North Carolina – site of the Wright Brothers first manned flight under power.
