USS YORKTOWN (CV-5) was laid down in 1934, launched in 1936 and commissioned in 1937. Following its shakedown cruise in 1938, the YORKTOWN engaged in exercises simulating attacks on the US East Coast. Joining the Pacific Fleet in 1939, tactical exercises continued in 1940, centered on the defense of the Hawaiian islands in the North Pacific. Returning to Pearl Harbor with severe bomb damage that would take 3 months to repair, the YORKTOWN was back at sea after only 3 days, to mount an attack on the Japanese Navy in the Battle of Midway in June 1942. The YORKTOWN suffered direct hits from Japanese torpedo aircraft but did not sink. Attempts at salvage were interrupted when a final assault by IJN submarine caused the YORKTOWN to eventually capsize and sink on June 7th 1942.
