USS Harry E. Yarnell 1976-1978

View attachment 424060
Is that Prince Rainier and Princess Grace Kelly du Monaco?
He was pro-American as any US politician I've met.
After her death USS Carl Vinson was in the Mediterranean. We picked up the Prince and Caroline for a tour.
They arrived by Helicopter.
He had the port of Monte Carlo yachts anchored out so our Aircraft Carrier could anchor in.
Great guy.

Yeah we stopped there in 78 on a Med Cruise ..

Seems we were with Vinson somewhere , maybe not , been a while . Med in 76 was with America and 78 I forget who , because we did a lot of independent steaming on the cruiser ( no plane guard !! ) . That Russky was in the Black Sea in 78 , we spent three weeks up there by our selves and that little beast shadowed us the entire time , we were chasing the Kiev , never eyeballed her , but EW's had a field day with her I was told .. IO in 82/83 we had a carrier it seems but dont recall now .. That was a strange cruise , back when nobody could pronounce or have any idea where Bahrain and Djibouti were .. Unitas in 85 was a blast ..

But alas I digress ..

Just after graduating OCS and being commissioned a 2nd LT armored cav officer. Standing next to my batshit crazy ex-wife. Man, this was a long time ago - mid-90’s.

Funny thing though, I was an E6 NCO prior to OCS. It didn’t take long for me to realize I preferred working with soldiers as an NCO vs the headache and paperwork of being an officer.
