USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) Aircraft Carrier

USS Ronald Reagan
Aircraft Carrier

USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76), the ninth and penultimate Nimitz-class supercarrier, was the first ship of the United States Navy to be named for former President Ronald Reagan.

Very few ships of the United States Navy have been named for a person who was alive at the time of the christening; the list includes Carl Vinson (CVN-70), Hyman G. Rickover (SSN-709), Arleigh Burke (DDG-51), John C. Stennis (CVN-74), Bob Hope (T-AKR-300), Ronald Reagan (CVN-76), Nitze (DDG-94), Jimmy Carter (SSN-23), and George H. W. Bush (CVN-77).

The contract to build USS Ronald Reagan was awarded to Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company in Newport News, Virginia on 8 December 1994 and her keel was laid down on 12 February 1998. She was launched on 10 March 2001 sponsored by Ronald Reagan's wife Nancy, and commissioned on 12 July 2003, with Captain J. W. Goodwin in command. At the commissioning ceremony, Mrs. Reagan gave the ship's crew the traditional first order as an active unit of the Navy: "Man the ship and bring her to life."

President Reagan died eleven months later. At the end of the graveside services, the ship's commanding officer, Navy Captain James Symonds, presented the flag that draped the former president's casket to Mrs. Reagan at her request. This was also the flag that had flown over Capitol Hill on January 20, 1981, when the president was inaugurated. Captain Symonds also presented Mrs. Reagan the flag that had been flying over the Ronald Reagan when the former president died.

USS Ronald Reagan displaces approximately 95,000 tons of water fully loaded and has a top speed of over 30 knots, powered by two nuclear reactors driving four screws, and can sail for 20 years before refueling. She is nearly as long as the Empire State Building is tall at 1,092 feet (333 m) and is 134 feet (41 m) wide at the beam and has a flight deck 252 feet (77 m) wide. The flight deck covers over 4.5 acres (18,000 m?). She carries more than 5,500 sailors and over 80 aircraft.

During her transfer from the Atlantic to the Pacific, she transitted the Straits of Magellan. Her homeport is San Diego, California.

USS Ronald Reagan Construction

Ronald Reagan conducted her maiden port visit in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, from 11–14 November 2003. The contract to build Reagan was awarded to Northrop Grumman Newport News and Dry Dock Company in Newport News, Virginia on 8 December 1994, and her keel was laid down on 12 February 1998. The budget for the ship had to be increased several times and ultimately $4.5 billion was spent on her construction.[3] This included a redesigned ship island.[4] Reagan was christened by Reagan's wife Nancy on 4 March 2001 at Newport News Shipbuilding, the crew moved aboard on 30 October 2002,[5] and the ship was commissioned on 12 July 2003 at Naval Station Norfolk, with Captain J. W. Goodwin in command. Vice President Dick Cheney and Lynne Cheney were both present at the ceremony, as well as Nancy Reagan, who gave the ship's crew the traditional first order as an active unit of the Navy: "Man the ship and bring her to life." Ronald Reagan made her maiden voyage on 21 July 2003. President Reagan, who did not attend either the launch or the commissioning due to Alzheimer's disease, died eleven months later. At the end of the graveside services, the ship's commanding officer at that time, Captain James Symonds, presented the flag that draped the former president's casket to Mrs. Reagan at her request. This was also the flag that had flown over Capitol Hill on 20 January 1981, when the president was inaugurated. At a later date, Captain Symonds also presented Mrs. Reagan the flag that had been flying over Ronald Reagan when the former president died.

USS Ronald Reagan Naming

Ronald Reagan was the first nuclear-powered warship of any kind to be named in honor of a living former president.[6] Unlike most of the other men honored by inclusion in this group, Reagan was not associated with the United States Navy, apart from his term as Commander-in-Chief, though one of his key initiatives in office was the 600-ship Navy program.

USS Ronald Reagan Ship's seal

The design of USS Ronald Reagan seal was created entirely by her plankowner crew with historical assistance provided by staff members at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library foundation. The red border that rings the ship's seal is similar to the distinctive red rim that defines the White House china designed for the Reagans during their White House years. Four gold stars represent President Reagan's 40th presidency and his four pillars of freedom: individual liberty; economic opportunity; global democracy; and national pride. "Peace through Strength" was a recurring theme of the President's life in public service. The aircraft carrier is positioned by the West Coast, representing President Reagan's two terms as Governor of California and the ship's homeport in the Pacific Fleet. The three aircraft with their patriotic contrails symbolize the three major military operations the President directed during his tenure: Operation Urgent Fury (Grenada/1983); Operation El Dorado Canyon (Libya/1986); and Operation Praying Mantis (Iran/1988). The view of the globe signifies the President's vision of global democracy, and the center is the United States representing the country's national pride. Colors of red, white and blue dominate the seal reflecting the American flag.[

Ronald Reagan web site:

MISSION, VISION, PRINCIPLES OF USS RONALD REAGAN

MISSION

This ship, her air wing, and her crew make up the most effective and versatile fighting vessel in the world. Our versatility allows us to directly support all of the Navy’s core missions; in most cases we serve as the centerpiece for these missions. In conducting these missions, our priorities will be:

  • Defend the ship - Without an effective fighting ship, nothing else is possible. All other priorities must be subordinate to protecting the ship and keeping her operational.
  • Support the staff - The power of a strike group comes from coordinating all of our assets effectively.
  • Support the Air Wing - The air wing is at the tip of the spear of a long sequence of events that puts weapons on targets.

VISION

We get superior results by excelling at the basics. We are committed to truth and fairness. We have the integrity to stick to our standards, even if it takes longer. Each Sailor is valued and understands his/her role to support the team. Sailors are empowered to speak up to make the command better.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

In addition to our core values, we will:

  • Communicate - Constantly work up and down the chain of command to build unity of purpose and minimize confusion. Good communication takes constant effort.
  • Be professional - Arrogance and bravado are for amateurs. Have the confidence of those who are experts in their craft, and who are always striving to be better.
  • Be persistent - Overcome obstacles to get things done correctly and safely.
  • Build technical competence - Know your job first and foremost before any collateral or other duties.
  • Be innovative - Push your limits, but always with a clear understanding of the risks these limits entail.
  • Insist on sound fundamentals - On this ship we will operate and maintain the ship the right way – by the book – all the time!
  • Be personally responsible – You are accountable for your actions. Take pride in your achievements, acknowledge and accept your mistakes. It’s ok to enjoy your job, standing around joking is not ok. Know the difference.
  • Work as a Team – Gain strength from our diversity. Value everyone’s contribution to the team. Look out for yourself, and your shipmate both at sea and ashore. Cooperate with and respect your juniors just as much as your seniors. Focus on safe, effective mission accomplishment. We represent our namesake, whose integrity, optimism, and indomitable spirit brought an end to the cold war and brought a brightened vision of the future. We will remain faithful to his proud legacy while embracing the challenges of the future.

aircraft carriers are numbered with consecutive hull numbers starting with the CVN-68. The letters CVN denote the type of ship: "CV" is the hull classification symbol for aircraft carriers, and "N" indicates nuclear-powered propulsion. The number after the CVN means that this is the 68th "CV", or large aircraft carrier.

Nimitz Aircraft Carrier (CVN-68), the lead ship of the class, was commissioned on September 18, 1976. George H. W. Bush (CVN-77), the tenth and last of the class, was built by the Newport News Shipbuilding Company, and she entered naval service on January 10, 2009. The USS George H.W. Bush will be the first transition ship to the new Gerald R. Ford-class, the first ship of which began construction in 2007 and will incorporate new technologies including a new multi-function radar system, volume search radars, an open architecture information network, and a significantly reduced crew requirement. To lower costs, some new technologies were also incorporated into the Ronald Reagan, the previous carrier to the George H.W. Bush, though not nearly as many as will be involved with George H.W. Bush.

Because of construction differences between the first three ships (USS Nimitz, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Carl Vinson) and the latter seven (from Theodore Roosevelt on), the latter ships are sometimes and erroneously called Theodore Roosevelt-class aircraft carriers, though the U.S. Navy considers them to all be in one class.[1] As the older aircraft carriers come in for their Refueling and Complex Overhaul, they are upgraded to the standards of the latest ships.[2]

The USS Nimitz was the first warship of this class to undergo her initial refueling during a 33-month RCOH at the Newport News Shipbuilding Company in Newport News, Virginia, in 1998. The Dwight D. Eisenhower was next, completing its RCOH in 2005. The Carl Vinson began its RCOH in late 2005. The USS Abraham Lincoln entered the large drydock at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard on September 8, 2006, but she left ahead of schedule on December 18.
