Dear Visitor to the USS Hancock Memorial:

It seems only fitting that I use this website to tributize those who fought in the Vietnam War, along with all their support personnel, since Jake's 'Yankee Station' is a historical tribute to the fighting men of the Fighting Hannah and a good portion of those who served aboard our ship, served during the Vietnam War years - your Yeoman being one of them.

For ten years, during this unpopular war, the Hancock fought and supported those who went to Vietnam and struggled there. Many of our own crew, both from our Air Groups, attached Squadrons and Ship's Company gave lives working and fighting the Ship, therefore it is both fitting and proper that we honor and remember these valiant men who gave everything to insure the Freedoms we Americans so cherish and enjoy.

Please visit our Vietnam War Tributes and our Virtual Wall Memorial on this Website!
