I served on both the forrestal and the kennedy... when the fid was in mayport, sinkin’ sarah was right next to us...
I served on JFK, 86 - 90, when she was still a good ship in Norfolk, before Philadelphia Naval Shipyard screwed her up and then the Navy sent her to Mayport and cut all funding for upkeep.
I saw her after decommissioning. She was towed up to Norfolk and sat at a pier at the Naval Station for about 6 months until her space was ready in Philly. It was depressing to see her daily at the pier with all the rust and her mast cut down and welded to the flight deck.
BTW, I also served on Nimitz (80 - 84) and Ike (93 - 96).
