As you all have heard, the Navy has determined that USS Kitty Hawk is destined to be scrapped, and has been determined as such since decommissioning in 2009. This is a big blow to all association members, all crew members, our families, and our nation as a whole. We have submitted the required paperwork to the Navy, but they did not consider it, since the ship was not available for donation hold.
As an alternative, we are trying to find a location to set up a USS Kitty Hawk museum. More details will be forthcoming, but association leadership is considering everything from a place on USS Midway on the West Coast to a building in Kitty Hawk, N.C. on the East Coast, and everywhere in between.
