USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67), formerly CVA-67, was a supercarrier of the United States Navy. Nicknamed "Big John", she was named after the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy. Kennedy was originally designated a CVA, or strictly an air combat ship; however, the designation was changed to CV to denote that the ship was capable of anti-submarine warfare (ASW), making her an all-purpose carrier.

Kennedy was decommissioned on March 23, 2007 at Mayport, FL, 18 months short of 40 years service in the United States Navy, leaving the USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63) as the only conventionally-powered carrier left in the Navy. The Kennedy's last skipper, Captain Todd Zecchin, has been dispatched to Japan to oversee the decommissioning of that ship as well.
