Vietnam War Deployment History

This historical document was assembled by Ken "Jake" Jaccard, Web Yeoman, USS Hancock CV/CVA-19 Memorial located on the internet at http://www.usshancockcv19.com and gathered from various and sundry other historical documents found on this historical ship. Much of the data assembled here and on other history pages on this Website were gleaned from a thorough search; most of which came to us from the U.S. Naval History Website located at http://www.usnavalhistoricalcenter.gov.

The Yeoman does not claim authorship of this data, nor does he claim that all data found here or on other historical documents found on this website are completely factual. He merely is providing access to what has been written and discovered on this historical warship, the U.S.S. Hancock CV/CVA-19 and providing it to our visitors. We do, however, hope that what has been written and displayed here is factual since it is our hope that we are delivering history as it happened and not what was interpreted by the talking heads in our society whose interest is not in history but in sales of history books. Such has never been our aim or goal.
