Not too many years ago, Turner Published came out with a wonderful Book on the Hancock History. Your Yeoman sent in his own Bio and purchased this book, which turned out to be one of the prized books in my personal library. If you purchased it you know I am telling no lie - it was certainly worth the money.
Once again, I have been notified that Turner is going to update the Hancock History Book and will be made available soon. Now's your chance to send in your Bio if you missed the last publication. It's important that we make our mark in history, shipmates, and here's your chance. Follow the Order Form Link below to order your copy and add your Biography to the next issue.

Hancock History Book - Second Edition Update
Shipmates, I just received Mail from Tom Wimberly, our USS Hancock CV/CVA-19 Association Membership Chairman, the following update on the Hancock History Book, Second Edition:
As of 20 November 2007:
HANCOCK REVISED HISTORY BOOK. This is the second edition of the history book published by the Association. Itís still available, but I am told there are only about twenty copies (20) remaining. Call Turner Publishing at 270/443-0121 for information. This book is very comprehensive on the World War II history. It would be a great acquisition for someone who had a relative who was a Hancock sailor in World War II.
