On Thursday, walking up to the ferry after drinks with cow-orkers, I saw this small aircraft carrier like thing docked at the end of a parking lot just south of the Bay Bridge. It's not the USS Hornet, anyone know?

It looks like a Wasp Class Amphibious Assault Ship to me. The Navy uses them to land Marines and carry helicopters. I think it says either 5 or 6 on the side meaning it's the USS Bataan or the USS Bonhomme Richard.
