OFFICER’S MESS WARDROOM
Only the best officers are given command of U.S. Navy ships, and only the elite of these are selected for aircraft carriers. The USS America was the third of four Kitty Hawk-class super-carriers. Commissioned in 1965, decommissioned in 1996, she served three times in Vietnam, and once each in Libya, the Persian Gulf and Bosnia. This book profiles the 23 men who commanded the America and her crew of 5,000 during 31 years. Most of them were combat veterans--World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Mayaguez Rescue Operations, Lebanon, Haiti, Libya, Bosnia, and Desert Storm. Four were Naval Academy graduates; seven were test pilots; one became Inspector General of the Navy; one wore both Navy wings and submariner dolphins; and one was a prisoner of war in Vietnam for nearly six years. Two retired as admirals--one was Chief of Naval Operations--five as vice admirals, and 11 as rear admirals. Each profile gives a career account based on official biographies, published memoirs, and interviews with the commanders or their families.
Only the very best officers are given command of U.S. Navy ships, and only the elite of these are selected for command of aircraft carriers. The USS America was the third of four Kitty Hawk-class super-carriers. Commissioned in 1965 and decommissioned in 1996, she served in many conflicts, cruising three times to Vietnam, and once each to Libya, the Persian Gulf and Bosnia. This book profiles the 23 men who commanded the America and her crew of 5,000 during 31 years of service.

Each profile gives a full career account based on official biographies, published memoirs, and interviews with the commanding officers or their families.
The premise of the book is that only the very best of officers are selected to command Navy ships, and the elite of these are those selected for command of aircraft carriers. The book follows the ship through it's thirty-one year career, including Vietnam, Lebanon, Bosnia and the Gulf Wars and profiles the careers of the twenty-three extraordinary men who commanded her in war and peace.
