The Aircraft Carrier Memorial is located in San Diego, CA. The
Memorial commemorates all U.S. Navy's aircraft carriers and all who
served in them or have flown from their decks. The Memorial was
sponsored by the Aircraft Carrier Memorial Association and dedicated on
February 17, 1993. Two life-size bronze sculptures were added in
1995 and 1996 and represent a sailor and a naval aviator.
Nearing, daughter of
Philip W Nearing,
visited the Memorial on July 27, 2005 with her husband Dwight Cole and
contributed these photographs.
