Like history you can hold in your hand, this heirloom-quality historic wood pen was handcrafted using actual wood removed during the restoration of the famous USS Yorktown. This famous aircraft carrier was on the recovery mission of the Apollo 8 astronauts in December 1968.

The USS Yorktown is a national treasure, having participated significantly in the WWII Pacific Offensive that ended with the defeat of Japan in 1945. She later earned 5 battle starts for service off Vietnam. A Hollywood favorite, the USS Yorktown was the backdrop for the filming of the Academy Award-winning (1944) documentary "The Fighting Lady" and the films "ŒTora! Tora! Tora!"Œ and "ŒThe Philadelphia Experiment"Œ

With over 16 battle stars and the Presidential Unit Citation earned, the USS Yorktown holds a firm place in American history and was formally dedicated as a memorial on the 200th anniversary of the US Navy in 1975.

Refillable ballpoint historic wood pen. Arrives in a protective case along with history card.
