    You may be able to find information by writing to the ship (addressed to the Commanding Officer) and request the information you are looking for. There is an admin. section that has, as part of their job, the responsibility to maintain a history of the ship. In your letter, it is best if you can state when your Dad was there, which division he was in or which squadron he was attached to. Don't feel offended if you receive a reply requesting that you send your request to the Department of the Navy but at least they will point you in the right direction. Fair winds and following seas on your search!
    I've found that most relationships work best when no one wears pants.

    Most of us old-timers thought of FDR, but CVN-71 is a pretty respectable ship, too!

    You should be able to find quite a bit on line. Search on www.navy.mil (of course), also Facebook, YouTube, etc. Wikipedia has some links.

    Alas, the Navy's site index has a dead link, also linked on the Wikipedia page. :-(
