In December 1954, Intrepid was in its home port of Norfolk, Virginia, and crew members were working to get the newly re-commissioned ship ready for service. For Christmas that year, Santa came to visit with crew members’ families and there was a party with caroling by the ship’s choir, clowns, and cake and ice cream.
For major holidays, the crew members aboard Intrepid worked hard to transform the ship and celebrate. This year, we wish you and yours the happiest of holidays! In the words of Captain William T. Easton, Intrepid’s commanding officer in December 1954, “May all of you enjoy a joyous and memorable holiday season.”
