Fullbore Friday

19 December 1967. You just got through closing the shore in daylight and punched it out with shore batteries. Your CO comes on the 1MC.

Wish you were there? Well ... at least we have a recording from the CO of the USS NEWPORT NEWS (CA-148) Captain Lindsay C. McCarty, USN that day.

Fullbore as it should be. Solid, matter of fact leadership at war. Nice.

Big thanks to JE & MS for the audio.
