USS Harry S. Truman (CVN75)

I had the great pleasure of flying out yesterday for a visit aboard the USS Harry S. Truman (CVN75), a Nimitz class aircraft carrier named after our 33rd president. The ship is a floating city of 5200 men and women that is 24 stories high, 1092 feet long and 257 feet wide. The Truman is off the coast of Key West for a couple of weeks doing advanced flight training. The ship has a museum dedicated to Truman and inside Commanding Officer Capt. Joe Clarkson’s quarters is a large framed picture of the Harry S. Truman Little White House. I flew out to the ship with a group of folks from Key West, including Historic Tours of America’s President, Ed Swift. It was one amazing experience. Be sure to check out all of the photos from our trip.
