USS Carl Vinson, homeported in San Diego, California is the third Nimitz-class nuclear -powered aircraft carrier and one of only 11 operational aircraft carriers in the Navy today. Sailors’ jobs are highly varied aboard Vinson. Approximately 3,000 men and women make up the ship’s company, and they keep all parts of the aircraft carrier running. They do everything from preparing meals to handling weaponry and maintaining the nuclear reactors. Another 2,000 sailors comprise the air wing, the people who fly and maintain the aircraft aboard the ship.
Vinson, like each of the Navy’s aircraft carriers, is designed for a 50-year service life. When the air wing is embarked, the ship carries more than 60 attack fighter jets, helicopters and other aircraft, all of which take launch and land aboard the carrier at sea. The ship was commissioned in 1982 and named after former Georgia Congressman, Carl Vinson.
