  • Description

    The USS Ranger -- one of the newest and largest aircraft carriers in the world--is home in San Francisco after seven months of duty off Vietnam.

    Many of the Ranger's crew of 4,000 sailors were greeted at dockside by their families. But there was sadness, too. In aerial action over both North and South Vietnam, the Ranger lost three pilots. But her six squadrons of 80 planes scored on a number of targets.

    The Ranger's planes were flown off the carrier to an air base before the carrier reached San Francisco Bay. Both planes and ships will get a through overhaul before heading back to action again. And there will be welcome shore leave for sailors and aviators.

    Ranger is the flagship of Rear Admiral Henry Miller, who praised his men for a job well done.
