November - National Aircraft Carrier Month

November is National U.S. Navy Aircraft Carrier Month celebrating the aircraft carrier's role in defending the freedom of the United States, and it's role as a maritime platform. We celebrate in November because of historical events like the first launch of an aircraft from the deck of a Navy ship in 1910, and the first catapult launch in 1915. 

From being a first responder for security to providing humanitarian aid after a natural disaster, aircraft carriers are one of our Nation's most versatile tools.

The National U.S. Navy Aircraft Carrier Month Committee had a video contest and the winner will be announced on November 6th. The committee selected a video in 2016 by Andrew Guengerich of Austin, Texas as the winner of the National U.S. Navy Aircraft Carrier Month Video Contest.
