Ronald Wilson Reagan

On this day, June 5, 2004, our 40th President passed away at his home in Bel Air.
Born February 6, 1911 in Tampico, Illinois, Reagan wore many hats over the course of his 93 year life. He served as both an enlisted soldier and commissioned officer in the US Army, was a television and film actor, President of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) (1947-1952 & 1959), Governor of the State of California (1967-1975) and the 40th President of the United States (1981-1989).

While the fall of communism may serve as his most potent legacy, he is survived by wife Nancy and three grown children. Many streets, buildings, schools and organizations bear this great man’s name including the final Nimitz-class nuclear aircraft carrier, USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76).

Presidential appeal

Today is Presidents Day . The observance of the holiday was originally inspired by our nation’s first president, George Washington’s birthday. The holiday has historically been quite subjective in its observance. It is also accepted as a day in which to remember and honor multiple presidents.
Perhaps your favorite president is Ronald Reagan, whose birthday of February 6, 1911 seems a natural inclusion in this holiday as well for his historic contributions.
Ronald Reagan, our 40th president, was worthy of honor and remembrance for many reasons, not the least of which includes his survival of an assassination attempt and the end of the Cold War during his second term.
The US Navy’s Nimitz-class aircraft carrier bearing his name is a fitting tribute.
Limited…History in VogueTM chose to produce the following piece in recognition.
At the risk of being redundant, these pieces also feature the first-day-issue stamps and postmarks released by the USPS in recognition of our 40th president.
These have multiple appeal in the form of historic significance as well as the obvious reference to Reagan himself, the United States Navy, and of course, the ship herself.

The USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) (33″ X 44″ dimensions) was produced for the officers, the sailors, the plank owners, the builders and for any parents who are just proud of their sons and daughters. 760 signed and numbered, limited pieces are barely enough for a continuing crew of 5000.
Thank you to the US Navy for providing the original photograph and the Navy Seal!
To do away with reflections, all pieces are glassless and sealed with non-yellowing lacquer and vinyls.

“Navy Up” comes from the term “Cowboy Up” which means to toughen up! The animation for this catchphrase was drawn by retired Disney artist Dave High of Simi Valley California.
The bucking stallion represents the forever cowboy in Ronald Reagan.
