The Ship - All Hands - Decorations - Remembrance
"The veterans of USS Enterprise CV-6 are humbly proud of her gallant record. Many have indicated that this record was made possible by the great support she received not only from her ship's company and air groups, but also from the many ships that sailed with her in various engagements and missions."
- USS Enterprise CV-6 Association
"The CV6.ORG web site is deeply indebted to the USS Enterprise CV-6 Association, who have generously provided papers, images, and other materials, contributing greatly to the content of this site. This site would not be possible without the Association's support."

The USS Enterprise CV-6 Association was formed and chartered in Chicago, Illinois, in 1954 by a few veterans of service in the Big E in World War II. The Association By-Laws provide for election of new Officers at the National Reunions held every two years.
Membership in the Association is $25.00 for two years, or $100 for a Life Membership. All officers and men who served in Enterprise, ship's company or air group squadrons are issued Regular Memberships, their immediate families Associate Memberships, and all others Affiliate Memberships. All members who maintain their membership on a current basis are mailed the CV-6 Association Bulletin, issued twice a year.
Our Association has sponsored, funded, and dedicated five major museum exhibits to commemorate the gallant history of USS Enterprise CV-6 and her air groups. These exhibits are located as follows:
