The current USS Enterprise, CVN-65 will be decommissioned when CVN-78, the USS Gerald R. Ford is commissioned into the fleet. This will leave the high seas without a US aircraft carrier named Enterprise. The Big-E has been plowing the waves of the high seas for the last fifty and more years in defense of US National interests, and doing so successfully.
In World War II, the USS Enterprise, a Yorktown Class aircraft carrier, CV-6, was the most highly decorated vessel of the war, and the most highly decorated combat vessel in US Navy history.
It is critical that this proud tradition of service, honor and distinction continue.
Please click the first picture above and sign your name to the petition requesting this...and email, forward, blog, twitter, facebook, and share it with your friends and ask them to do the same.
We need hundreds of thousands of signatures to make this a reality.
The US Naval Institute, the Tailhook Association, and US Navy veterans had an initial petition HERE to name the 2nd Ford Class carrier, CVN-79 as the USS Enterprise. But the U.S. Navy named her the USS John F. Kennedy instead and so that effort has been discontinued.
The USS Enterprise and this request needs more exposure. Let's support our veterans and rise up as citizens and add tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands of signatures so our elected and appointed officials will respond in the affirmative.
We will email this petition to the Secretary of the Navy and the US Congress at 10,000, at 50,000, and at 100,000 signatures...and then do so again with each additional 100,000 signatures. So, please spread the word, help us make this petition go viral so we can help influence our elected and appointed officials in retaining the rich tradition of the USS Enterprise.
