Footnotes

  • The U.S.S. Enterprise was the third Yorktown-class aircraft carrier to be built (and only the 6th carrier that the US built), and was launched in Newport News in 1936. The vessel was the most decorated carrier of the Pacific campaign, serving in over 20 of the 22 battles in the Pacific Theater (the next carrier served in 13 battles), constantly on station and in action. She was one of only 3 pre-war carriers to serve the entire war, and was decommissioned in 1947.
