Welcome to the USS TICONDEROGA Veterans Association!
 
The mission of the USS TICONDEROGA Veterans Association is to perpetuate the memory of the Essex-class aircraft carrier USS TICONDEROGA (CV/CVA/CVS-l4) commissioned May 8, 1944, and the first AEGIS cruiser USS TICONDEROGA CG-47 commissioned January 22, 1983, and ship's company of these U.S. Navy vessels.

 

Membership is open to all USS TICONDEROGA CV-CVA-CVS-14 and CG-47 personnel having served aboard these ships. In addition, membership shall be opened to other military or civilian official passengers who served aboard these ships while underway (such as flight/air group personnel, technicians, news media, space-moon shot recovery personnel, etc.). Associate membership shall be opened to relatives and friends of members who wish to participate in the association activities. An associate member shall pay annual dues and have all rights of a member except they may not cast a vote in the business of the association.


ANNOUNCEMENTS

See Association Member Ed Trotter's discussion about CDR Thomas J. Hudner, Jr., XO of Fighter Squadron FIVE THREE (VF-53) who was characterized in the recently released movie DEVOTION.  It is an interesting article with a variety of history and links to CVA-14.
