Tipped in are several 1956 news articles with photos of CV-10. Because of the dates-of-service written next to the autographs - up to 1970, it is assumed that these shipmates were present at the decommissioning ceremony 1970, where they signed each other's tour of duty books. The 20,000 ton aircraft carrier commissioned in 1943, is one of the Navy's most famous fighting ships, the fourth ship of the fleet to bear the name. This present ship received eleven battle stars between 1943-1945 and was placed in the reserve fleet in 1946. The ship underwent an extensive modernization program at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, and was again placed in commission on Dec. 15, 1952. After completing two more Far Eastern cruises, the ship underwent more intensive technical and structural modifications, and was returned to the Far East in 1956 with Air Task Group Four embarked, under the command of Captain Emmet O'Beirne and Commander Alvin C. Berg. This edition was printed at the completion of the Far East cruise that included coverage at the Suez Canal Crisis 1956. RARE - The full fighting history of this great warship are represented by its 16 signers - including its peace time service as prime recovery ship of the Apollo 8 astronauts and capsule. RARE.
