THIS IS THE WEBSITE HOMEPAGE OF THE

USS FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT

CVB/CVA/CV-42 REUNION

ATTACK AIRCRAFT CARRIER 1945-1977

special request!    

    Shipmates, A few of us are compiling a list of all the men lost while attached to the Rosie. We have the names of those that died during the cruises from 1957 thru 1977 but not the names of those men that were lost in between cruises. In particular we need the names of the 2 men who died as a result of the steam line explosion on 19 June 1957 while at sea off Mayport.

    We also need any names and approx. dates of any fatalities  prior to the 1956 conversion. Please contact me at 562-856-5313 or email me at
laryb442@yahoo.com with any information you might remember.

     Fair winds and following seas.
