The name "Kearsarge" has a long been a part of the United States Navy. Four ships have had the name, each of which having it's own unique history. This website is intended to share that history.
Personally, I served aboard the third ship to have the name. I made her last cruise, and deactivated her in 1970. Like your first love, your first ship is often one you will never forget. She becomes a part of you, much like you were a part of her. She may have been scrapped, but somehow she lives on lingering in your memories.
