Memorial Service at USS America CV-66 - April 2001
Ed Pelletier, President, USS America Carrier Veteran's Association:
"We have gathered here today, at our ship's side, to pay our respects to those of our fellow crewmembers who have gone before us. It is only fitting and proper that we take the time out of our lives to remember and honor those crewmembers who gave their lives while on duty aboard the America."
"I would also like to take a moment to remember those members of the Association who have passed on and can no longer be with us -
"We of the USS America Carrier Veteran's Association, dedicate this wreath to the memory of all of our crew members who have gone before us. May they always have fair winds and following seas, Amen."
