I was 17 years old when I first boarded the Yorktown, was 21 when I left our beloved ship for discharge. This is second time Im puting this in because I had my e mail wrong. I now live in Portage Ind.I retired from U.S.Seel with 40 years of service. Would like to hear from shipmates.

Comments: Hi All! My name is Sherrie Winstead. I came across a document in an old car magazine
the other day & I would very much love to try & return it to its rightful owner. The document
says, and I quote:

"U.S.S. Yorktown CVS - 10
6 November 1969
All Hands Be Informed That
This Certificate Is Presented To SN Jerry F. McCoy
upon his qualification as boat coxswain in 40 ft. "U" Boat and "MWB"
This award is made only to those who have
completed a course of instruction in boat seamanship, and have demonstrated expert boat
handling proficiency.
In the absence of an officer eligible for command at sea, the above named man is
granted authority over all persons embarked in his boat. He is responsible for the safety of his
boat and its passengers and is charged with the honor and responsibility of representing
Yorktown wherever her boats may go."

It has the official seal of the Yorktown and is signed by First Lieutenant
P.S. Tepfenhart.
If anyone has any information as how to find Jerry F. McCoy or his family
so I can give this to them, I would very much appreciate it. It amazes me that this document
has survived closed up in a magazine for all these years! I can't help but feel like I'm
suppose to get it back to its owner. Thanks in advance for any help.
Sherrie Winstead
