Hey, Scouts! and welcome to this information station (heh heh, that rhymed) about our upcoming overnight destination, the USS Yorktown! this ship is fully restored and a completley awesome experience! Here are some facts

-It is one of the few U.S. ships to stay fully intact from WWII 

-It is parked next to the only preserved GUPPY III in America, The Clagmore

-The Yorktown is number 10 in the line of U.S. aircraft carriers.

Also, the Clagmore is gonna be sent for scrap metal, to help keep it up and running and to keep it open for tours, you can donate at the website:
