Tonkin Gulf Yacht Club Stateroom (Hangar Bay One)

During the Vietnam War, U.S. Navy carriers operated off the east coast of North Vietnam in an area called "Yankee Station." The body of water in which the flattops and their escorts steamed was the Gulf of Tonkin, and sailors deployed to the Western Pacific quickly nicknamed this assembly of ships the "Tonkin Gulf Yacht Club." This exhibit serves as a window to the waters off the coast of Vietnam, the replica of a carrier stateroom displaying the unique touches of home on the floating city that is an aircraft carrier.
