USS Cabot (CVL-28) Island and Flight Deck (West Wing)

Built using original plans, the USS Cabot (CVL-28) island provides visitors with a perspective on the size of the light carrier. Light carriers operated fighter aircraft and torpedo-bombers and served alongside the large deck Essex-class carriers in the Pacific Theater. Cabot was one of nine to see combat during World War II, receiving nine battle stars and the Presidential Unit Citation. Robert A. and Robert J. Albrecht, the elder part of the father-son team the sailor who painted the original during World War II, adorned the replica island with the Japanese battle flags, indicative of aircraft and ships destroyed by the various squadrons that served on board.
