USS Franklin D. Roosevelt (CVB/CVA/CV-42) was the second of three Midway class aircraft carriers. To her crew, she was known as the "Swanky Franky," "Foo-De-Roo," or "Rosie," with the last nickname probably the most popular. Roosevelt spent most of her active deployed career operating in the Mediterranean Sea as part of the United States Sixth Fleet. The ship was decommissioned in 1977 and was scrapped shortly afterward. #aircraft #aircraft_carrier #carrier #crew #CV41 #CV42 #CV42_USS_Franklin_D_Roosevelt #CV43 #FooDeRoo #Mediterranean_Sea #Midwayclass #Midwayclass_aircraft_carrier #nickname #Rosie #Sixth_Fleet #Swanky_Franky #United_States #United_States_Navy #United_States_Sixth_Fleet #USS_Franklin_D_Roosevelt
