Hey Chris this is so cool,Dont know how i can explain this to you. but here it goes....Tell your son i said welcome home and that i am a PLANK owner on the USS CARL VINSON CVN 70 A "plank owner" is an individual who was a member of the crew of a ship when that ship was placed in commission CVN 70 is (1980).The tradition of the plank owner reaches far back into history. As a member of the Navy crew serving on board the ship at the time of commissioning, the plank owner receives "a clear, free, open and unencumbered title" to a plank of the deck of the ship, thus signifying his participation in this special day. This privilege will not be given to any future member of the crew of that ship. HTC TL MASON USN (ret) Jan 1979 to Feb 2000
