Review for USS Saratoga Museum Foundation, Inc., Providence, RI, USA
What a sin it is to let Sara go to scrap. I was on her during a Med cruise and again in 'Nam while I was an Avaiation Fire Control Technician (AQ) attached to VF-103. There never was , nor will there ever be a better, more proud ship than the Sara. While she was on the Delaware river, in Philadelphia, I was able to pull alongside of her in my 26' boat. My very young sons eyes lit up when I told him that this was the ship Daddy had spent many a day and night on while deployed in Vietnam. We were able to reach out and touch Sara's hull, which instantly brought back many memories. At the time, he didn't realize how important those years were to me, but now, as an 18 year old, his passion for his heritage, includes stories I have told him, and now, Sara is part of him as well.
