ABOUT THE CVN-71: Commissioned on October 25, 1986, CVN-71 was named after the beloved former president Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt, and she was given the call-sign "Rough Rider" after President Roosevelt's cavalry unit during the Spanish-American War. The USS Theodore Roosevelt is also affectionately called the "TR" or as the "Big-Stick", referencing a famous quote by the great former president, "Speak softly and carry a big stick, and you will go far." USS Theodore Roosevelt saw combat action in the 1991 Gulf War, and during Operation Desert Storm, she launched over 4,200 sorties, more than any other carriers that participated in the war.
