    My first first gig for deployment, (no not in '63!). Was attached to several carriers, "E" isn't the favorite, but a thrilling powerhouse to ride. A huge big deal for sure, the best argument for nuclear power plants in general ever. The Big "E" could deliver well past the endurance of any crew; and we often did. Ah, the stories...Still have National Geographic issue where it was a feature, that article includes laying down the keel.

    I figured we had guys on our forum who were familiar with the Big E, but did not expect that any of our members were deployed on it. Very cool.
