Yep! Another one!!
USS Saratoga, CV-60, is to be scrapped in Brownsville, Texas, not far from former USS Forrestal. Given my low placement among the US Navy's hierarchy, I don't know anything more than what I saw in this article, but one wonders why the USN is getting rid of its big ships recently. Are they making room for the expected downsizing? or perhaps they have finally come to a decision concerning the scrapping of ships they do not plan to use. There may be other things at play. I hope that someone saves important parts of her for a museum or display.
