President Ford served as an officer in the US Navy in the Pacific on the aircraft carrier USS Monterey.The USS Gerald R Ford.
I can think of so many better names for an aircraft carrier in the United States Navy. I cannot imagine what motivated naming a carrier after the first unelected president of the United States who's tenure was most noted by the unilateral world-wide retreat of the United States during the Cold War, which continued until Ronald Reagan became president.
A ship in the US Navy has a name assigned very early in its program. I can guarantee the original name for that aircraft carrier wasn't the Gerald R Ford.
Now, just why would this administration change the name to that of what every Democrat called the most inept president in US history?
Hillary Clinton commissioned it. Can you imagine Hillary commissioning the USS Ronald Reagan? Just because of the name, she'd never do it. That's how much she actually respects the Armed Forces... if her complicity in the murder of a US ambassador and 3 other Americans in Benghazi wasn't enough to convince you of that.
Ford was a far better President than the current pretender.
