This Web Site was built by the EQNEEDF and its intended use is for its author who has made available U. S. Aircraft Carrier Deployment History to the public less restricted membership access to the entire narrative and historical content in great detail. By years end it will be completely uploaded. The typical air wing aboard a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier usually contains three FA-18 squadrons,  one S-3 squadron, one EA-6B squadron, one E-2C squadron, and one helicopter squadron. You can find detailed information on each of these aircraft by clicking on the silhouette. That will take you to the Navy Fact File for that particular aircraft.

    “I built this web site, researched and wrote, typed and compiled the most compressive compilation of U.S. Aircraft Carrier Deployment History any where in the world. Thanks to the U.S. Navy for supplying the history. The Federal government of the U.S. doesn’t want much history available of retired aircraft carriers on the internet, but the history is for sale. The following report once completely uploaded, scheduled by years end, will conclude a ten year project authored by EQNEEDF of EQNEED Inc. The great potential Naval History has in respect to public relations encouraging movies illustrating the bravery, sacrifices, hardships and suffering of those who have served is waiting for exploitation. It is my hope, that U.S. Aircraft Carrier Deployment History brings to life the heroism and action of countless souls who have served aboard US Aircraft Carriers through authors whom can write stories from those who care to share history of there tour of duty, and those whom sacrificed there lives in pursuit of liberty, Freedom and obedience to the Republic of the Unites States of America.

Weapons of Mass Destruction; EQNEEDF letter to The President of the U.S. Of America

 

TO: The President of the U.S. Of America - 2006

 

Dear Mr. President Bush

 

In our nations history, never before has weapons of mass destruction been so readily available and this threat so viable, it’s only prudent that the U.S. lead the way in dismantling nuclear war heads. To suggest that the U.S. become the world’s depository for spent Plutonium I think is unrealistic, yet we must assist any country that is willing to dismantle WMD’s while governments throughout the world should share the responsibility of storing nuclear waste in predetermined regions.

 

Dear Prime Minister:

 

In the midst’s of much endured suffering and the loss of so many, and many more if events escalate, it’s extremely difficult to be patient. You’re enemies, equipped with rockets, launching them at you illustrates the urgency in which the international crisis must be solved.

 

I support you in what ever you must do.

The Navy is headed to Vietnam. That should be interesting.

 

SOUTHEAST ASIA

 

Southeast Asia (Cambodia, Laos, Burma, Thailand and Vietnamis presented as a review of individual countries history in respect to the Kingdom of Laos and the influence of Buddhism that originated in China. Laos and Vietnam communist governments’ history from there beginning to present illustrate great sacrifices and suffering for those who were involved in the creation of communism and those affected by it. This work is research under going and in know way suggests anything other then citing historical facts, yet I think it’s safe to say, there were to many competing ideologies to co-exist within the political arena of Laos, resulting in the destruction of the Kingdom of Laos. The U.S. failure to succeed in Laos and Vietnam was as a direct result of ideologies dividing people within regions, Communist Party Members of both Vietnam and Laos to include Royal Family Members of the Kingdom of Laos. Americans under estimated the resolve I think of the communist and eventually realized the need to with draw support for South Vietnam, when an increasing number of Americans thought that Vietnam served no national security threat to the United States of America and while communisms was hated, many felt the world was big enough to co-exist peacefully to the extinct necessary to sign a peace agreement I guess. One thing is for sure, the U.S. pumped allot of money and personnel into Vietnam for a long time. There are many stories originating from the history of south east Asian to say the least. Many brave souls on every side fighting for what they believed in. I can see the struggle of humanity is still far from over and political ideologies will until the end, be as different as the moon from the sun. I’ll stick with a Republic defended by Aircraft Carriers, with a strong Navy, Marines, Air force, Army and U.S. Coast Guard.
