INCLUDES CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY. The Father of the Nuclear Navy writes from the nuclear-powered guided-missile cruiser named in honor of a founding Father of the United States Navy! Despite the fact th a t Congress has repeatedly ta ken the position that we need to build more nuc le ar-powered surface warships, the U. Has only seven nuclear surfa c e sh i ps in operation and six more under c o nstruction. This is a slow rate of transition to nuc l ear power for the greatest maritime power in the wor ld — an i sland nat i on d e pendent on the Navy f o r its secu r ity… Rickover directed the original development of naval nuclear propulsion and controlled its operations for three decades as director of Naval Reactors. In addition, he oversaw the development of the Shippingport Atomic Power Station, the world’s first full-scale atomic electric power plant devoted exclusively to peacetime uses. Rickover is known as the Father of the Nuclear Navy. Aircraft carriers and submarines are nuclear-powered. With his unique personality, political connections, responsibilities, and depth of knowledge regarding naval nuclear propulsion, Rickover became the longest-serving naval officer in U. History with 63 years active duty. On April 30, 1975 Saigon fell and the Vietnam War was over. From April to November 1975, the U. Military evacuated over 100,000 Southeast Asian refugees displaced by the Vietnam War out of South Vietnam. During this time, displaying America’s naval strength and superiority, sea trials of the nuclear-powered guided-missile cruiser USS Truxton were held in the North Pacific. 3 pages, 8 inches by 10.5 inches.

Young was a delegate to the Republican National Conventions which nominated Nixon in 1968 and 1972, Ford in 1976, and Reagan in 1984. He supported President Nixon during the 1974 House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearings publicly suggesting that the Democrats on the committee had already decided to impeach Nixon. Read the entire three page letter in the above pictures. We are returning from the post-refueling sea trials of the nuc l ear-powered guided-missile cruiser USS TRUXTON (CGN 35)… The TRUXTUN is now powered by new design reactor cores which have enough fuel to last more than ten years before the next refueling. He was born in 1755, was appointed lieutenant in the American Navy in 1776, and commanded the INDEPENDENCE in 1777, at the age of 22. In 1798 upon the organization of the U. Navy he was appointed one of its six captains and assigned to the frigate CONSTELLATION with which, in 1799, he captured L’INSURGENTE after a severe battle, and in 1800 LA VENGEANCE. She was commissioned as our fourth nuclear-powered surface warship on 27 May 1967… When the nuclear cruisers authorized thro u gh FY 1975 are completed there will be a t o tal of nine nuc l ear-powered guided-missile ships to accompany the two nuc l ear carriers ENTERPRISE (CVAN 65) and NIMITZ (CVAN 68) now in operation, as wel l as the two new nuc lear carriers DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER (CVAN 69) and CARL VINSON (CVN 70) now un d er construction.. The nuclear cruisers, in addition to providing fleet defense against aircraft and submarines, are uniquely qualified to carry out independent missions which require unlimited endurance at high speeds without logistic support. The TRUXTUN conclusively demonstrated this when she was assigned to a special mission in the Indian Ocean. Her assignment required her to make the longest sustained high speed run in naval history by steaming 8,600 miles at an average speed of advance of 28 knots, from Subic Bay in the Philippines to Perth, Australia, crossing the Indian Ocean twice en route. At all t imes the TRUXTON was ready to undertake protracted combat operations. After 25 y e ars of studying the issue, despite the fact th a t Congress has repeatedly ta ken the position that we need to build more nuc le ar-powered surface warships, the U.
