Bill Schaub

  • Service Branch: United States Navy
  • Service Dates: 1952–1956
  • Stationed: USS Hornet CVA12
  • Rank: Interior Communications Technician

Bill attended Boot Camp at Bainbridge Maryland, and then was assigned to the aircraft carrier USS Hornet where he served for the entire four years of his enlistment. The Hornet had a proud tradition in the United States Navy starting in Colonial times as a battleship alongside her sister ship, the Wasp. Since that time there has always been a ship carrying the name. The ship Bill served on was a WWII Essex class carrier which had fought in the war. After the war it was eventually put in reserve, but was recommissioned in 1953 during the Korean Conflict. It then made an Around the World Tour, putting in at every major port all over the globe.
When the tour was over, the Hornet served in the Pacific and visited more locations giving Bill another view of the world. It was a time when Americans were welcomed, making it easy to meet people and begin to know them. For Bill, his four years spent in the Navy was a priceless education. It opened his eyes to the rest of the world and widened his perspective about other people and cultures. There was a sense of adventure about it as well. He has never lost that love of travel and adventure and is willing to credit the time he spent on the USS Hornet for that. He is proud to have served.
