Redford Sister City Commission Memorial Day Parade 2013
Redford's Sister City remembers the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Enterprise, which was decommissioned earlier this year. The U.S.S. Enterprise was the first nuclear powered aircraft carrier and the largest naval ship ever built. Completed in 1960, the Enterprise assisted in John Glenn's orbit around the earth, and was active during the Cuban Missile Crisis. The Enterprise also was called to action in Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The carrier was featured in a Star trek move and hosted Star Trek actors on many occasions. Construction on the Navy's new U.S.S. Enterprise is scheduled to begin in 2018.
