Summary

ATLANTIC OCEAN (Sep. 11, 2017) Aerographer's Mate 3rd Class Jessica Bishop signs a log that travels with a national ensign that was raised at Ground Zero during a 9/11 observance in the fo'c'sle of the aircraft carrier USS Harry S.

Aircraft carriers are warships that act as airbases for carrier-based aircraft. In the United States Navy, these consist of ships commissioned with hull classification symbols CV (aircraft carrier), CVA (attack aircraft carrier), CVB (large aircraft carrier), CVL (light aircraft carrier), CVN (aircraft carrier (nuclear propulsion) and CVAN (attack aircraft carrier (nuclear propulsion). The first aircraft carrier commissioned into the United States Navy was USS Langley (CV-1) on 20 March 1922.
