Charleston took a direct hit, though.

USS Hornet is located in Alameda, California . I've been on it and it appeared to be in good condition. In 1970 she was decommissioned at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard Bremerton, WA. Didn't become a museum until 1996. Load it with some A-4s and helos, and the Grey Ghost could harass Mexican/Cuban forces in California, as long as the avgas lasts.
Alameda would've caught plenty of fallout and blast from the nukes that hit San Fran that Hornet is probably an irradiated wreck.

USS Intrepid is located in New York City, New York. Became a museum in the early '80s.
The only one on the list not right next door to or directly at a primary site, Intrepid is the only hope for a re-workable flattop.

USS Midway is located in San Diego, California. I've been on it and it is in great shape. The ship was decommissioned in 1992, her sister ship Coral Sea was decommissioned the year before. In the Twilight war, both ships could conceivably be reactivated and operate F-18s and helos.
Probably not decommissioned in the T2k 1e timeline.

Quote:
USS Lexington is located in Corpus Christi, Texas. Decommissioned in 1991, and made a museum in 1992. Presumably still serviceable for the Twilight war, the Blue Ghost could operate planes or helos in the Gulf of Mexico.
Corpus Christi got hit.

I wish there were more salvageable big girls too but...thems the facts.
