I attended the ceremony to commission this great ship in Norfolk in May of 1975. Later, as an employee of NN Shipbuilding, I had the opportunity to work on the ship when she came into the yard for overhaul in 1983.

I was only 14 at the time of the commissioning but I got the chance to shake hands with President Ford and Admiral Rickover (who cursed at me for asking for his autograph). However, a very classy, elderly lady gently smacked the admiral on the arm and told him told to sign my program. He complied and I was grateful to this kind lady for intervening on my behalf. I was then told that this lady was Mrs. Douglas McArthur. She signed the program too but I have long since lost it. Can you confirm that Mrs. McArthur attended the ceremony? It is a great story and I want to have my facts straight, Thank you!
