    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)

    Last month I spent an hour waiting on a taxiway in Phily, I could make out Big John's island in the distance.

    Actually, while Caroline was indeed the ship's sponsor, she was actually christened by Jackie O. Caroline should be able to perform both duties this time around.
