In answer to your above request, you are absolutely correct. It is the USS
Yorktown CV-10 at Patriots Point, South Carolina. The web site is
http://www.state.sc.us/patpt/ and the number for info is 1-800-248-3508.
This is advertised in the Scouting magazine. I served aboard the Yorktown
in the 1995-1996 era. I'm glad that you inquired about it as it made me do
some research to help you and brought back memories for me. Maybe some day,
I'll get to go see it again.
