On August 21, 2014, the USS Saratoga made her final departure from Naval Station Newport to the scrapping company in Brownsville, TX.
The USS John F. Kennedy Project could not be where we are today without the years put into trying to acquire the USS Saratoga, and the dedicated men and women who helped try to make that happen. For that reason, we hosted a farewell ceremony at the ship on August 8, and on August 21, the USS Saratoga made her final departure from Naval Station Newport to the scrapping company in Brownsville, TX.
Watch the great mini-video that Norman Grant from CCRI put together for us during the school’s annual Community Service Day in March, 2014: 2014 CCRI Community Service Day at USS JFK Project HQ from USS JFK Project on Vimeo.
