USS Hornet and Apollo 11 – History in Alameda

Filed under: Uncategorized — serkes @ 7:22 pm

History buffs, and those wanting to honor the generation which saved the world, should visit the USS Pampanito in San Francisco, the USS Hornet in Alameda, the USS Potomac in Jack London Square, and the Jermiah O’Brien.. one of the last remaining Liberty Ships

The USS Hornet became one of the most decorated ships in naval history. The ship recovered Apollo 11 space capsule which contained the first men to walk on the moon. The Hornet is reputed to be haunted.

We’ve gone to Memorial Day Events at the Hornet… and even heard the Glenn Miller Orchestra there
