  1. wow this is amazing! my father David Morris served on the thomas jefferson and since he passed it is great to see that something still remains.

  2. I served on the Thomas Jefferson (Blue) from 1977 to January 1981, her last deterrent patrol #51. It is good to see that something still remains. I hope to someday see her sail in person again, it would be neet if you can go in the conning tower one last time.

  3. On TJ Blue 68-76. Didn’t know the sail was saved. Would like to see it again. Better hurry, time’s a wastin…

  4. I served on the TJ 1964-1965, very possibly the greatest time of my life! I’ll never forget her and the rest of my Gold Crew buddies.
