Sailors Aboard USS Theodore Roosevelt Mark President Roosevelt’s Birthday

Sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) celebrated President Roosevelt’s birthday by touring the ship’s museum, Oct. 27.

The museum’s design motif is derived from Roosevelt’s home in Sagamore Hill, N.Y., and is home to more than 30 artifacts. The artifacts depict the many facets of Roosevelt’s life, including his time as a rancher, a solider and the President of the United States.

“This is a warship, so you don’t really expect a museum to be aboard with authentic relics from Theodore Roosevelt’s life,” said Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Equipment) 3rd Class Mitchell MacKenzie. “It’s just a great piece of history.”

The ship redesigned the museum during the four-year Refueling and Complex verhaul, and it reopened in September. The museum is open to visitors every Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
