USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) – San Diego vintage style poster art.

The USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) is the third United States Navy “Nimitz class” Supercarrier and is named after Carl Vinson, a Congressman from Georgia, in recognition of his contributions to the US Navy. The ship was launched in 1980, undertook its maiden voyage in 1983, and underwent Refueling and Overhaul between 2005 and 2009. Carl Vinson’s call sign is “Gold Eagle”. Besides deployments in Operation Desert Strike, Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Southern Watch, and Operation Enduring Freedom, the Carl Vinson was involved in a number of notable events. The body of Osama bin Laden was disposed of in 2011 from the deck of the USS Carl Vinson, and that same year, on Veterans Day, it played host to the first NCAA basketball game on an aircraft carrier.
