My father was on the Oriskany when the ship left the Brooklyn Navy yard on it 1st cruise. This is a better end than the original plan, where she was being sold as scrap. At least the Oriskany will now have a final place in history as the worlds's largest man made reef.
Unfortunately they all can't be kept as museums and such.
