I visited Philadelphia this past Saturday, February 2nd, 2019 and stopped at the shipyard because I knew the JFK was there. I served onboard this massive ship between 1984-1988. While on deployment in the Mediterranean for 7 months, approximately 5,300 sailors were living on this ship. I guarantee you there was ZERO rust on it at that time. After an attempt at making it a museum, the JFK is now marked for scrap.
