The nick name of the USS Coral Sea CVB 43. She served the United States for 43 years 1947 to 1990. I had the honor to have served aboard her during the Korean war.

She was scrapped during the 90 's, a sad ending for a great ship.

The painting portrays her during the 50's at dawn preparing for dawn flight operations. 12" X 16" acrylic on masonite.
