A Better View

Click on pictures to enlarge. A much better view of the Bay of DaNang. You can see the ships out there from this view. One was the Battleship New Jersey which did fire missions for us. It's said that it's guns can fire a shell the weight of a Volkswagen 21 miles with accuracy. I can't verify it. Maybe one of our Naval Comrades can shed some light on that subject. What do they mean by accuracy? + or- 500 meters ? I don't recall if the New Jersey was there when I took this picture, but it was there during my tour. The Hospital Ship "Hope" was also there, but farther out to sea.
