The fifth USS Independence (CV/CVA-62) is a Forrestal-class aircraft carrier of the United States Navy.She was the fourth and final member of the Forrestal class of conventionally powered supercarriers.She entered service in 1959, with much of her early years spent in the Mediterranean Fleet On 19 November 1980, Independence deployed to the Indian Ocean and was on watch on "Gonzo Station" as President Reagan took office and the Iranian Hostages were freed. Subsequently completing an Indian Ocean cruise, Independence transited the Suez Canal northbound, shortly after America had transited southbound, making America the first United States Navy carrier (and, thus, Independence the second) to transit the Suez Canal since Intrepid in 1967. Independence completed a deployment of 204 days. Scheduled to go to Singapore, the crew was instead diverted to the Persian Gulf to back up the USS Nimitz during the Iran Hostage Crisis mission with CAPT. TC Watson, Commanding. There was a Shellback Initiation conducted and a Flightdeck party at 60 days out to sea. The crew saw liberty only three times—a week in Perth, Australia, 5 days in Mauritius, and a short 1/2 day stop in Rota, Spain before crossing the Atlantic to return to Norfolk on 10 June 1981.

. The helm is controlled by joysticks instead of a traditional steering wheel. The sharks fed for days, with no sign of rescue for the men. Navy intelligence had intercepted a message from the Japanese submarine that had torpedoed the Indianapolis describing how it had sunk an American battleship along the Indianapolis’ route, but the message was disregarded as a trick to lure American rescue boats into an ambush. In the meantime, the Indianapolis survivors learned that they had the best odds in a group, and ideally in the center of the group. The men on the margins or, worse, alone, were the most susceptible to the sharks.

Kennedy's firm stand on Berlin during a recurrence of stress in a critical area. She returned to Norfolk 27 August and sailed 11 October for the Caribbean Sea. Called on by President Kennedy on 24 October during the 1962 Cuban missile crisis, Independence provided a strong, visible reminder of U.S. determination and resolve while she acted as a key participant in the U.S. naval blockade of Cuba. She arrived off Puerto Rico in response to the presence of Soviet missiles in Cuba and took part in the quarantine operations which finally forced withdrawal of those missiles. She then returned to Norfolk 25 November for readiness exercises along the eastern seaboard, overhaul in the Norfolk Naval Shipyard, and refresher training out of Guantanamo Bay.
For fiscal year 2010, the Navy planned a competition between Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics for the next three littoral combat ships, with the winner building two ships and the loser only one. Independence was christened 5 October 2008 by Doreen Scott, wife of 10th Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Terry D. Scott. The carrier was also the set for Flight of the Intruder, a 1991 action film starring Danny Glover. Images of the carrier were also used in the 2005 film Submerged starring Steven Segal.

The ship completed builder's trials on 21 October 2009 and acceptance trials on 19 November 2009.
The contract was awarded to General Dynamics in July 2003. The contract to build her was then awarded to Austal USA of Mobile, Alabama, on 14 October 2005 and her keel was laid down on 19 January 2006. Delivery to the United States Navy was scheduled for December 2008. As the sun rose on July 30, the survivors bobbed in the water. Life rafts were scarce. The living searched for the dead floating in the water and appropriated their lifejackets for survivors who had none. Hoping to keep some semblance of order, survivors began forming groups—some small, some over 300—in the open water. Soon enough they would be staving off exposure, thirst—and sharks.Independence carries a default armament for self-defense, and command and control. Unlike traditional combatants with fixed armament such as guns and missiles, tailored mission modules can be configured for one mission package at a time. Modules may consist of manned aircraft, unmanned vehicles, off board sensors, or mission manning detachments.

McVay III, was among the survivors. He became the only ship’s captain in the U.S. Navy to be court-martialed in connection with the loss of his ship in combat in World War II. In February 1946 McVay was found guilty of negligence for having failed to steer the ship on a zigzag course to help evade enemy submarines. He was found not guilty of another charge: having failed to promptly issue orders to abandon the ship after the torpedo attack. The military court recommended clemency, and the sentence (a decrease in seniority) was set aside. Upon his retirement in 1949, McVay was promoted to rear admiral. He committed suicide in 1968.

Download In late July 1945 the Indianapolis was sent on a high-speed voyage to deliver cargo to a U.S. air base on Tinian, one of the Mariana Islands, in the western Pacific. No one on board knew that the cargo consisted of parts for atomic bombs. The Indianapolis traveled from San Francisco to Tinian in only 10 days. After completing the delivery on July 26, it proceeded to Guam and then was sent to Leyte Gulf, in the Philippines. The ship had traveled about halfway to Leyte when it was hit on July 30 by two torpedoes from the Japanese submarine I-58. The Indianapolis sank in about 12 minutes.Independence tested the MCM and ASW mission modules for the littoral combat ship designs during the summer of 2014. It was the first time the ship had conducted end-to-end missions, and the crew successfully performed at the high operational tempos. When moving through a mock minefield twice, the suite of counter-mine technologies detected mines each instance and completed search, detect, and destroy phases; it was also the first time all three components of the MCM package had been integrated on board the ship. Testing of the ASW package was conducted in September, where for the first time both the active and passive sonars were towed at once to make sure the two systems did not cross. Independence conducted shakedown training under her first captain, Captain R. Y. McElroy, with the first landing-on being carried out by a Grumman Trader carrier onboard delivery aircraft on 2 March 1959. She arrived at her new homeport of NS Norfolk, Virginia on 30 June 1959, and then carried out a ten-week training cruise in the Caribbean. During these trails, while carrying out compatibility tests aboard the new carrier, a Douglas A3D Skywarrior was catapulted off Independence at a gross weight of 84,000 pounds (38,000 kg), the heaviest aircraft to take off from a carrier at the time. But shortly after midnight, a Japanese torpedo hit the Indianapolis in the starboard bow, blowing almost 65 feet of the ship’s bow out of the water and igniting a tank containing 3,500 gallons of aviation fuel into a pillar of fire shooting several hundred feet into the sky. Then another torpedo from the same submarine hit closer to midship, hitting fuel tanks and powder magazines and setting off a chain reaction of explosions that effectively ripped the Indianapolis in two. Still traveling at 17 knots, the Indianapolis began taking on massive amounts of water; the ship sank in just 12 minutes. Of the 1,196 men aboard, 900 made it into the water alive. Their ordeal—what is considered the worst shark attack in history—was just beginning.

On 17 February 1985, Independence arrived at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard to undergo a modernization and overhaul program to extend her service life by 15 years. The flight deck was improved to allow the recovery of high-performance aircraft while the ship traveled at slower speeds, and the NATO Sea Sparrow launchers were upgraded. Other improvements improved the ship's fuel consumption. Independence completed the Service Life Extension Program (SLEP) at Philadelphia Naval Shipyard in June 1988. Setting sail 15 August 1988 from Norfolk, the ship transited the tip of South America and arrived at her new homeport of NAS North Island, in San Diego, California, 8 October.

Any Iraqi planes that violated the ban would be shot down. Twenty Navy aircraft from CVW-5 aboard Independence in the Persian Gulf were the first coalition aircraft on station over Iraq as Operation Southern Watch began. Southern Watch was the enforcement of a ban on Iraqi warplanes and helicopters from flying south of the 32nd parallel. The USS Indianapolis was built in Camden, New Jersey. The ship was launched in 1931 and commissioned by the U.S. Navy the following year. A Portland-class heavy cruiser, the Indianapolis was 610 feet 3 inches (186 metres) long and displaced 9,950 tons. It carried a main battery of nine 8-inch guns and eight 5-inch antiaircraft guns. Powered by eight boilers turning four steam turbines, the ship could reach speeds of more than 32 knots (nautical miles per hour). In its first years, the Indianapolis operated in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The ship carried U.S. Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt on three cruises, including a “Good Neighbor” visit to South America in 1936.

Steaming to the crash site, Independence and other ships spent two long days retrieving what little remained of the ill-fated jetliner, her crew, and passengers.
USS Independence By: Garland Davis The fifth USS Independence (CV/CVA-62) was an aircraft carrier of the United States Navy. She was the fourth and final member of the Forrestal class of conventionally powered supercarriers. She entered service in 1959, with much of her early years spent in the Mediterranean Fleet. Independence made a single tou The Forrestal-class aircraft carriers were designed in the early 1950s as a smaller version of the cancelled United States class "Supercarriers". Unlike the United States class, they were to operate in both the nuclear strike and conventional roles, and were therefore intended to carry a mixed fleet of fighters, light attack and heavy attack aircraft, all of which were to be jets. The carriers were designed around the large new Douglas A3D Skywarrior bomber, with four deck-edge aircraft elevators large enough to handle the new bomber. As jet aircraft needed much more fuel than piston-engined aircraft, the Forrestal-class had a much greater aviation fuel capacity than existing carriers, with 750,000 US gallons (2,800,000 l) of Avgas and 789,000 US gallons (2,990,000 l) of jetfuel, more than double that carried in the Midway class aircraft carriers.

After 11:00 a.m. on their fourth day in the water, a Navy plane flying overhead spotted the Indianapolis survivors and radioed for help. Within hours, another seaplane, manned by Lieutenant Adrian Marks, returned to the scene and dropped rafts and survival supplies. When Marks saw men being attacked by sharks, he disobeyed orders and landed in the infested waters, and then began taxiing his plane to help the wounded and stragglers, who were at the greatest risk. A little after midnight, the USS Doyle arrived on the scene and helped to pull the last survivors from the water. Of the Indianapolis’ original 1,196-man crew, only 317 remained. Estimates of the number who died from shark attacks range from a few dozen to almost 150. It’s impossible to be sure. But either way, the ordeal of the Indianapolis survivors remains the worst maritime disaster in U.S. naval history. The USS Independence (NCC-77199) was a Federation Defiant-class starship that served in Starfleet. She was the fifth Starfleet ship to bear the name and part of the allied 8th fleet. Commissioned on stardate 52789, the Independence was meant to see combat in the Dominion War. Only two months later, however, the war ended The design for Independence is based on a high speed trimaran (Benchijigua Express) hull built by Austal (Henderson, Australia). The 418 feet (127 m) surface combatant design requires a crew of 43 sailors. Independence, delivered to the Navy at the end of 2009, is a high speed, small crew corvette (although the U.S. Navy does not use the term) intended for operation in the littoral zone. She can swap out various systems to take on various missions, including finding and destroying mines, hunting submarines in and near shallow water, and fighting small boats (she is not intended to fight warships). The ship is a trimaran design with a wide beam above the waterline that supports a larger flight deck than those of the Navy's much larger destroyers and cruisers, as well as a large hangar and a similarly large mission bay below. The trimaran hull also exhibits low hydrodynamic drag, allowing efficient operation on two diesel powered water jets at speeds up to 18 knots (33 km/h; 21 mph), and high speed operation on two gas turbine powered water jets at a sustainable 44 knots (81 km/h; 51 mph) and even faster for short periods. Independence has an Interior Communications Center that can be curtained off from the rest of bridge, instead of the heavily protected Combat Information Center found on other Navy warships.

Independence became the most battle experienced ship in the Navy's active fleet, and the first carrier in history to hold that distinction, on 30 June 1995. With this honor, Independence displayed the Revolution-era First Navy Jack, commonly called the "Don't Tread On Me" flag, from her bow until her decommissioning. The flag was presented to Independence commanding officer Capt. David P. Polatty III in a formal ceremony on 1 July. The flag was received from Mauna Kea (AE-22) upon her decommissioning.

Independence changed homeports again on 11 September 1991—this time to Yokosuka, Japan, embarking Carrier Air Wing 5 and becoming the Navy's only permanently forward-deployed aircraft carrier, and flagship for Commander, Carrier Group Five. The USS Independence was built in the 1950s and was designated CV-62 and later CVA-62 after conversion to an attack aircraft carrier. She was the last member of the Forrestal class of carriers, built throughout the 1950s and the first class of true supercarriers, bigger than any warships before them
In 2013, U.S. Navy sources described early documents that showed that the ship was to be named Liberty was a mistake. Do you have USS INDEPENDENCE Reunion information you'd like to share After 30 years and learning the computer and finding VetFriends, I went to my first reunion of the USS Navasota AO-106. I had a great time and intend to go again next year. I really hope some other people can find this service and get in touch with people like I did Seventy years after its service in World War II, NOAA, working with private industry partners, has confirmed the location and condition of the USS Independence. Resting upright in 2,600 feet of water off California’s Farallon Islands, the aircraft carrier’s hull and flight deck are clearly visible in sonar images, with what appears to be a plane in the carrier’s hangar bay. Independence (CVL 22) was the lead ship of its class of light aircraft carriers that were critical during the American naval offensive in the Pacific, and later was one of more than 90 vessels assembled as a target fleet for the Bikini Atoll atomic bomb tests in 1946. After returning to the United States, the blast-damaged carrier was scuttled in 1951.
USS INDEPENDENCE was the fourth and last ship in the FORRESTAL - class of aircraft carriers. The fifth US Navy ship to bear the name, the INDEPENDENCE was commissioned as attack aircraft carrier CVA 62 and redesignated as multi-purpose aircraft carrier CV 62 on February 28, 1973. USS INDEPENDENCE was last homeported in Yokosuka, Japan, and is now laid-up at the Naval Inactive Ship Maintenance Facility at Bremerton, Wash. Because of the poor material condition at the time of her decommissioning, the Navy decided not to retain the INDEPENDENCE for future use as a museum. Initial plans were to sink INDEPENDENCE as a target. In December 2010, however, the Navy decided to scrap the INDEPENDENCE. On March 11, 2017, the ex-USS INDEPENDENCE left the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, Bremerton, Wash., under tow heading for the scrapyard in Brownsville, Tx. The tow took her around South America and was expected to take about two months until the carrier reached International Shipbreaking's facility. During her lay-up in Bremerton, she was extensively used as a parts hulk for the Navy's other aircraft carriers, leading to the decision to scrap her instead of offering her as a museum ship. The INDEPENDENCE is the last of the four FORRESTAL-class aircraft carriers to be scrapped. Her three sisterships have already been or are currently being dismantled in Brownsville.On 23 August 1992, Independence entered the Persian Gulf, under the Command of Captain Carter B. Refo prepared to enforce an Allied ban on Iraqi flights over south Iraq below the 32nd parallel north. On 26 Aug President George H. W. Bush announced that the United States and its allies had informed Iraq that in 24 hours Allied aircraft would fly surveillance missions in southern Iraq and were prepared to shoot down any Iraqi aircraft flying south of the 32nd parallel. The action was precipitated by Iraq's failure to comply with U.N. Resolution 688 which demanded that the Iraqi government stop the repression of its Shiite population in southern Iraq. sells gifts hats mugs shirts for uss independence cva-6

The third Independence, the subject of this collection, was the first ship-of-the-line (i.e. battleship) commissioned in the United States Navy. After launching on 22 June 1814, she was immediately armored and assigned to protect the port of Boston during the War of 1812 Over the years numerous efforts were undertaken to find the Indianapolis. However, given its depth—some 3.4 miles (5.5 km) below water—and uncertainty about its location, the wreckage remained lost until August 2017, when it was discovered by a team of researchers led by Paul Allen, cofounder of Microsoft.
