Comments:

    Only regret WASP could have been saved as museum along with INTREPID. 28 year career sailor. Served on board USS WASP (CVS 18) 1958 through 1962. 
    Also - USS HORNET (CVS-12) will relieve WASP (CVS-18) and will be homeported at the old Naval Air Station, Alameda, California, as a Museum Ship. Will carry on for all CVS's that have either been stricken or scrapped."
