If the patch is for the designation CC-2,then anywhere from 1963-70.Fom 1970-80 she was inactive.


Here is some info I found:


USS Wright (CC-2, previously CVL-49), 1963-1980.

USS Wright, a command ship, was originally commissioned in February 1947 as the small aircraft carrier Wright (CVL-49). Beginning in March 1962, she was converted to a command ship, receiving the new hull number CC-2 in September of that year. She recommissioned in May 1963 and operated in the eastern Pacific until late 1963, then transited the Panama Canal to begin Atlantic Fleet duty. For more than five years thereafter, Wright primarily served as an emergency command post, ready to take aboard U.S. political and military leaders in the event of a threatened nuclear conflict. She also performed communications services, including supporting President Johnson's South American visit in April 1967. USS Wright was decommissioned in May 1970 and remained inactive until she was sold for scrapping in July 1980.

High Flight

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth

And danced the skies on laughter-silver wings;

Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth

Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things

You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung

High in the sunlit silence. Hovering there

I've chased the shouting wind along and flung

My eager craft through footless halls of air.

Up, up the long delirious, burning blue

I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,

where never lark, or even eagle flew;

and while, with silent, lifting mind I've trod

The high untrespassed sanctity of space,

Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.


John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

June 9, 1922 – December 11, 1941
