The SUNRISE PRESS began as a daily ship's letter in 1943 and continued throughout World War II. During the war the articles were datelined from all over the world keeping the crew updated on the war effort and appraised of stories from home. After the war articles of a more personal nature were presented and the crew enjoyed reading about their shipmates.
After recommishioning in August 1955 the ship's newsletter was published under other names but it seemed only fitting that the Association newsletter use the original USS Lexington CV 16 newsletter name.
Currently three (3) or four (4) issues are published each year.
