|USS Oriskany CVA 34, The "Mighty O"|
has been my Virtual Museum
and Tribute to the USS Oriskany since 2004 and is dedicated to all of her former
crewmembers, their families and friends.
It is my hope that viewing all the artifacts, videos, magazine articles and more that I have to share here will bring back fond memories of your time aboard. I'm also proud to offer USS Oriskany cruise books for download for every cruise the ship made during her illustrious career.
|NOTICE: 5/9/2016 - I now have an additional 21 months of decklogs for viewing. There are nine months for the year 1961 and the full year for 1962. The 1962 logs cover the WestPac Cruise that took place that year. The year 1961 includes a 5 month overhaul at the San Francisco Naval Shipyard beginning on March 30. Oriskany departed the shipyard on 9 September for underway training out of San Diego with CVG-16 doing workups and refresher training which continued until June of 1962. There are now a total of 88 months worth of decklogs to view.|
ANNOUNCEMENT: At this time, I am no
longer offering USS Oriskany cruise books on CD.
Instead, I've decided to offer them as digital
downloads only. And, instead of having a set
price, I’m asking for a small donation. Your
donation is very welcome and helps maintain this
website and all the information found here.
You can access the digital cruise books by
clicking on the "CRUISE BOOKS" link in the menu
|5/08/2016 - I've now added action reports submitted by Carrier Air Group 102 while deployed aboard the USS Oriskany during the Korean conflict. You will find the link to them at the bottom of the "Artifacts" page. Just click on the "MEDIA" menu button above.|
|NOTICE: Two additional months worth of deck logs for the USS Oriskany are now available for download. These are for the months of April, 1973 and November, 1974. There are now a total of 67 months of deck logs spanning 1963 to 1976. You will find the link to them at the bottom of the "ARTIFACTS" page you will see under the "MEDIA" button in the menu above.|
