    Default For You Navy History Buffs - 4th Ford Class Aircraft Carrier Name

    The Navy announced they plan on ordering a 4th Ford Class aircraft carrier in the mid 2020s.

    The first is named USS Ford, the second will be USS Kennedy, the third will be USS Enterprise.

    What would be your suggestion for the 4th?

    USS Hornet has my vote.

    How about a new USS Constitution? That would be a complete mystery to many Americans.

    Well in the spirit of July 4th, one group of enterprising soles spent some time spelling out "we the people" in rocks along the "Loneliest Road in American", highway 50 east of Fallon Nevada.

    I think the USS Hornet is already named for one of the amphibious assault carriers.
