Through exhibitions, educational programming and the foremost collection of technologically groundbreaking aircraft and vessels, visitors of all ages and abilities are taken on an interactive journey through history to learn about American innovation and bravery. The Intrepid Museum was founded in 1982 with the acquisition of the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid, now a National Historic Landmark, which served tours of duty in World War II and the Vietnam War, and was a recovery vessel for the Gemini and Mercury space missions. Welcoming over one million visitors annually, the Museum includes the Space Shuttle Pavilion, home to Enterprise, the world’s first space shuttle that paved the way for America’s successful Space Shuttle Program. On display are more than two dozen authentically restored aircraft, including the Lockheed A-12 Blackbird, the world’s fastest military jet and spy plane, and the British Airways Concorde, the fastest commercial aircraft to ever cross the Atlantic Ocean. The Museum also includes the submarine Growler, the only American diesel-powered strategic missile submarine open to the public; the Exploreum Interactive Hall, a fully interactive exhibit space; an 18,000 sq. ft. education center; and Pier 86, a publicly accessible pier that is part of the Hudson River Park Trust. The mission of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is to promote the awareness and understanding of history, science and service through its collections, exhibitions and programming in order to honor our heroes, educate the public and inspire our youth. The new Intrepid Museum is a unique journey filled with spectacular interactive exhibits and virtual, multi-sensory technology. The Intrepid Museum is a dynamic adventure for visitors of all ages and offers group packages, member benefits, birthday parties, special event packages and educational programs. Located at 12th Avenue and 46th Street, Intrepid is easy to get to by mass transit, car or water taxi. Learn more: http://www.intrepidmuseum.org/

During Richard Safran’s service, he drew artwork on white cotton handkerchiefs to send back to his family. This example is addressed to his mother and father and depicts his trip overseas to Oman, Spain, Britain, and Bermuda. His artwork served as a way to document his travels and share them with his family, and also as a diversion while off duty.

In honor of National POW & MIA Recognition Day, we are highlighting an item in our collection. During the Vietnam War, many Americans wore bracelets to raise awareness about prisoners of war and individuals missing in action. Intrepid pilot Philip C. Craig was shot down on July 4, 1967 while flying a combat mission over North Vietnam. Craig was initially listed as MIA, but his remains were identified in 1987. Gone, but never forgotten.

On this day (#OTD) in 1977, the first photo capturing the Earth and the Moon in a single frame was taken by Voyager I. Voyager I, which had launched thirteen days prior, relayed the photo back to Earth from ~11.7 million kilometers (7.25 million miles) away.

Today, Voyager I is billions of kilometers from Earth. Although its camera was turned off in 1990 to save power, it still transmits data captured by four other, still-functioning instruments. In 2012, it became the first human made object to leave the solar system.

Page 24 of the Muster Roll of the Intrepid upon commissioning, 16 August 1943. My daddy's name, HARMON, David Irby, Jr. is at the top of this page. I miss his war stories. *Document credit to Ancestry.com.*
Could you get one of these onboard, next to Concorde?

This is what Christ did before he went to the cross. Do u know how to get to Heaven? U can pray this prayer to invite Jesus into your heart Dear Lord I know that I am a sinner and that I need forgiveness. I believe that Christ died in my place to pay the penalty for my sin and that He rose from the dead I now invite Jesus Christ to come into my life as my Savior thank u for making me your child 1) Pray to God everyday 2)Read the Bible 3)Tell somebody about Jesus 4)Find a Christian church that teaches the word.
So what have you been doing during the quarantine? Linda Prince and I (both members of Amateur Observers’ of New York, a Long Island astronomy club, www.aosny.org) created this page: City of Stars - New York City. It’s about the astronomy related sites in NYC and a couple just outside of it. More about that in the page. I know if you live far from NYC, you probably won’t be visiting it anytime soon but you can do this virtual tour and maybe visit it later. If you live nearby, you might make it to some of the sites sooner rather than later. Either way we hope you enjoy the page. Maybe you could create one about your area. If you do, let us know. www.facebook.com/CityofStarsNYC

From aboard USS Slater DE 766 passing by on Tuesday August 25th as we headed back to Albany.
Looking for help!! I am trying to get this to the USS Intrepid Former Crew members Association and specifically the Chaplin or whoever would handle a death notice. I am sending you this immediately following Gary Wetherbee's (dob: June 20, 1952) final voyage; he had a special place in his heart for the USS Intrepid. We talked about her often. I always referred to her as a target just to "jack him up". The two (2), of us would often reminisce about his memories of the high seas in the North Atlantic, while I was under it. As you can guess I'm a retired Sub sailor (SS). Gary was on the decommissioning crew. During decommissioning somehow Gary ended up with some Commo signs, other gauges etc etc. (he had no idea how he came in position of these articles!) However, he happily donated them to the museum a few years ago and was so happy to have had the honor of visiting her in NY. Gary L Wetherbee RM3, passed away this morning July 17th, 2020 at 0625. Gary was a proud former crew member of the Intrepid. I was with him when he died. He fought a long running 3 1/2 year battle with Cancer. Cancer finally won! I am hoping this will somehow find its way to the Chaplin or whoever takes care of such matters, he was my best friend for 63 years. If someone could assist me in the matter I would be most appreciative. The funeral home handling his arrangements is: Goss Funeral Home 96 Dickenson Ave Enosburg Falls, Vermont 05450(802) 933 4408 Stay Vigil, Stay Safe, Stay Healthy. I am Most Sincerely, Butch Patch MSG(SS), USN/USA, (retd)
Would anyone have the newspaper article on when Intrepid was tugged under the Philadelphia Naval Yard's lift bridge, title was "Tugged through a tight spot"? My husband's copy was placed under a clear plastic and tge glue has soak through and he can briefly read it. He served during the Vietnam war.
