Serve with Courage
John F. Kennedy wore our nation's uniform as a Navy Lieutenant during World War II before serving as the 35th President of the United States from January 1961 to November 1963.
John F. Kennedy’s strength of character and leadership was influenced by many aspects of his life. One of the most influential periods could easily have been his tenure as a naval combat officer in the South Pacific fighting the Japanese following the attack on Pearl Harbor. He was awarded the United States Navy and Marine Corps Medal for Valor and a Purple Heart.
CVN 79 is also the second aircraft carrier to honor President John F. Kennedy for a lifetime of service to the nation. The first USS John F. Kennedy (CV 67) aircraft carrier served the fleet for over 50 years before decommissioning in 2007.

Kennedy (CV 67) aircraft carrier served the fleet for over 50 years before decommissioning in 2007.
