USS John F. Kennedy CV-67 Patch – Sew On

A 4.5 inch squadron patch of the USS John F. Kennedy CV-67

USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67) (formerly CVA-67) is the only ship of her class (a variant of the Kitty Hawk class of aircraft carrier) and the last conventionally powered carrier built for the United States Navy.[5] The ship was named after the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, and was nicknamed “Big John”. Kennedy was originally designated a CVA (fixed wing attack carrier); however, the designation was changed to CV.

After nearly 40 years of service in the United States Navy, Kennedy was officially decommissioned on 1 August 2007. She is berthed at the NAVSEA Inactive Ships On-site Maintenance facility in Philadelphia and, until late 2017, was available for donation as a museum and memorial to a qualified organization.[1][7] In late 2017, the Navy revoked her “donation hold” status and designated her for dismantling.[4] The name has been adopted by the future Gerald R. Ford-class aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy (CVN-79).
