    USS John F. Kennedy

    here's a question.. the USS John F. Kennedy CV-67 was christened by Caroline Kennedy May 27 1967, I wonder if she will christen the USS John F. Kennedy CVN 79 when ever the time comes.



    doing a little research, I'm going to guess yes, Caroline is the ship's sponsor and will christen her.

    I doubt she would still be in Japan at that time. She should have some free time?

    after more research, the ships sponsor is according to tradition a civilian woman, and if named after a person, the eldest female descendant of the ship's name sake (so Caroline, being President Kennedy's daughter was chosen as the sponsor of CV-67 and should be CVN-79)
