Blue Water Operations is a term the United States Navy uses to describe naval operations in the open ocean. The Navy’s key player in that role of power projection is the Aircraft Carrier Battle Group. At the center of that battle group is the Aircraft Carrier. For almost a Century the Aircraft Carrier has been a symbol of American might around the world.
This painting features the U.S.S. Ranger, CV-61, during operations in the Arabian Gulf during Operation Desert Storm.
The Ranger was the 3rd of 4 Forrestal Class Super-Carriers. She was the first to be built from the ground up with the angled deck. Launched in 1957, Ranger became operational just in time to begin serving of the coast of Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War. From Vietnam through the Persian Gulf the Ranger and her crew served with courage and distinction earning numerous deployment and battle awards until her decommissioning in 1993.
