but never been too much of a fan of Presidents... especially presidents that didnt serve in the Navy.. (i.e Truman... a former Army Artillery Officer????? Eisenhower.. a former Army O10???? I love me some Ronald Reagan.. but.. a former Army Cav Captain that couldnt deploy during WWII due to poor eyesight???)..

Miller is a far better choice..
Agreed on the names Yorktown, Lexington, & Saratoga.

Those names just scream aircraft carrier due to WWII history.

It would be cool to see them mixed in along with the names of men of valour from the bottom of the CoC like Dorie Miller.

An excellent choice that says a lot about the United States.
