Website Dedication

Come visit Jake's 'Yankee Station' USS Hancock Memorial


Website Dedication

This site is dedicated to all Veterans who Served our Nation in the U.S. Military.

Without their sacrifices, we would not be living in a Free Country. In these present times, we have to be practicing "Eternal Vigilance" for there will always be evil afoot desiring to destroy what we have, through much sacrifice, built for ourselves and the future generations.

The Web Site is Personally Dedicated to those who served in the USS Hancock CV/CVA-19 through her 32 year Career. If you would like more History about this historic Aircraft Carrier, please visit Jake's 'Yankee Station' - USS Hancock CV/CVA-19 Memorial, and follow the links on the entire Website. You will be taken on a Virtual Tour that will in part, share with you the experiences of those who lived it day-by-day, year after year. She was a Great Ship and her Crew that still survive will forever remember her as the "Hightlight" of their lives.

Thank you for your Visit to this Website... leave your Comments in our Guest Book, please.

Rich Kirsch, PH3, USNR (Retired) 1953-1955, OP Division
