Why WOULDN’T I want to become a Member? Only positive things can come from it. I would have access to the FB page that can give me so much information to help me learn more, free access to the ship the next time we visit, invitations to the reunions, making new friends & connections, and much, much more. I have to do this! Then I thought that since my brothers are just as interested in this, I could surprise them with their memberships! I got the ball rolling, and now here we are, alongside our Dad, proud members of the Association.
Why become a member?Our Community
The USS Yorktown CV-10 Association is made up of over 3,000 crew members that served aboard during The Vietnam and Korean War. What’s amazing, is the hundreds of family members of these veterans that are now a huge part of the association in their honor.
This lineage and legacy of service and continued education is what we are all about. Through reunions, on-board meet-ups, events, our Facebook Group, and even a simple phone call, we are a family of crewmembers and patriots that are connected through the lives and service of our veterans.
The ship is much more than a monument or tourist attraction, it is where young men were able to find purpose amongst the harsh and terrifying realities of war. It is where they developed character that would carry them through the rest of their lives. Some of the most challenging, and most memorable moments of their lives took place on the USS Yorktown. Through these American heroes, we see a glimpse of what our nation is made of. It is through their stories and legacy living on that we are able to build a better future.
