USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71)
USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) is the fourth Nimitz-class, nuclear-powered, aircraft carrier in the United States Navy. The aircraft carrier is the fourth ship named in honor of Theodore Roosevelt, three bearing his full name and a fourth with just his last name. Another three U.S. Navy ships have “Roosevelt” in their names in honor of members of the Roosevelt family. The carrier’s radio call sign is “Rough Rider”, the nickname of President Theodore Roosevelt’s volunteer cavalry unit during the Spanish-American War. She was launched in 1984 and saw her first action during Operation Desert Storm in 1991.
