It has been a long and many times unexpected journey for the USS Oriskany. With her keel laid in 1944 she didn't get commissioned until1950. Completely overhauled in 1957 and then ravaged by fire in 1966. Sold for scrap in 1995 and taken back by the Navy in 1997. Solicited for an artificial reef in 2001 then awarded to Florida and Pensacola in 2003. Scheduled for sinking in 2004 but PCB and hurricanes delayed it until 2006. If you have made the dive you must have this T-Shirt. Order it today from Leisure Pro. Amphibious Outfitters makes very impressive designs and uses very fine quality 100% pre-shrunk cotton T-shirts from "Fruit of the Loom Lofteez" type. T-Shirt is a great gift idea.
