|They helo'ed me to the USS Monterey before we entered the Suez Canal. We were supposed to lead the USS America, but the plans got changed for some reason. It was a compressed shot with a telephoto lens. Water taxies passed between us (USS Monterey) and the USS Oklahoma City.||Comment from Photographer's Mate 1st Class Eric N. Dunn|
