Barbara Ann Mojica about this book: Want to step back into history and forward into the Space Age all in one day? You can do exactly that when you journey to Pier 86 on the Hudson River in New York City. Here you will find one of the most successful ships in US naval history. The INTREPID served honorably in World War II earning her the title of most frequently hit aircraft carrier, surviving several suicide plane attacks. The "Fighting I" pressed ahead to provide service during the struggles in Viet Nam and the ensuing Cold War with Russia and her allies. Rescued from the scrap heap by retired Admiral Fisher, she became a proud museum and living memorial to those who proudly served on her. Today visitors can observe aircraft, explore life on an carrier, watch movies of past history, and gaze at the Space Shuttle Enterprise. You can board the Growler, a nuclear submarine docked next door. Grab the opportunity to participate in life on a carrier with hands-on exhibits, view historical aircraft and the Space Shuttle Enterprise now sitting on its flight deck. Don't miss the historical landmark that will not disappoint anyone from age one to one hundred and one!
