NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — This Thursday marks the 75th anniversary of the commissioning of the U.S.S. Intrepid.

The World War II-era aircraft carrier is now home to the Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space Museum on the Hudson River off Manhattan’s West Side.

Jerry Feola served aboard the Intrepid from 1966 to 1968 as an Aviation Structural Mechanic Third Class. He now volunteers with the museum regularly, and stopped by with the Intrepid’s Director of Individual Giving Alice Stryker to offer up some details on how the museum is marking the special anniversary
