USS D.D. Eisenhower

By John Young (L-8219)


The theme of turkey on a platter by Roger Wentworth (USCS #9963) depicts Mom or Grandma serving her family, posted aboard USS D. D. EISENHOWER on 22 NOV 1990. Most sailors would rather have Mom’s turkey on Thanksgiving Day as Roger mentions in the wording. Roger produced hand-drawn covers in limited numbers.

“Mighty Ike” commissioned on October 18, 1977 is one of four “Nimitz” Class nuclear aircraft carriers that provided firepower during Operation Desert Storm. She was the carrier to engage in operations in August 1990 and cover was canceled while carrier was in Norfolk following its deployment.
