    USS Hornet CV 8 sails from Norfolk never to return. The Hornet would not survive the year. Her crew would make her one of the Navy's most glorious ships. Below is her Commissioning Cover, October 20, 1941 signed by Adm. M.H. Simons, Capt. Marc A. Mitscher and Secretry of Navy Frank Knox (His wife was sponser of the Hornet)
