Twins Meet WWII Yorktown Veteran

Twin 10 year-old boys Carter and Jack had their dreams came true aboard the Yorktown. It all started with interest in history, specifically Naval warfare, spurred by the game Battleship. During a previous trip from their Raleigh home to the ship, they were put in contact with WWII Vet, Mr. Robert Harding. The boys began emailing and a friendship was forged. This spring, the boys came back to the ship. What they didn’t expect was for Mr. Harding, all the way in from Oklahoma, to be there waiting for them!
