This model was built for a Navy Veteran whose son is currently serving aboard the Vinson. The Father and Son sailed together during the Vinson’s 2017 Tiger Cruise. A “Tiger Cruise” is when the U.S. Navy allows civilian family members to ride aboard from Pearl Harbor Hawaii to the west coast home port of the ship. In this instance the Vinson sailed from Pearl Harbor to its home port of San Diego California.
