Indy

Welcome to "INDY Reunion Association" Home Page.

 

We are an association of past Ships Crew, Marine Detachment and Air Group members

we have no contact with the ship.

 Please do not ask us to locate a member of the crew.

You probably have better access then we do.

It's a brotherhood like no other and only those who serve, can identify. You are
a member of the greatest fraternity the world has ever known.
 

USS Independence Legacy

"Time after time Sailor's of the Independence

stood up for the freedom and stood down freedom's enemies.

In the Cuban Missile crisis, Indy was there.

When Iraq invaded Kuwait, you were the carrier on the scene.

You delivered our answer, up close and personal.

In peacetime and war this great ship and it's battle group

have been there as America's shield and America's sword".

                                            President William J. Clinton

                                                                             

"Any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life
worthwhile, I think can respond with a great deal of pride and satisfaction:  
I served in the United States Navy." 

 - John F. Kennedy -
