Archerfish Christmas

Happy Holidays from ARCHERFISH

This is the card that many of us sent home to family and friends from ARCHERFISH during the 60's because we weren't home very often!

Christmas, anchored in Acapulco Bay, 1967.
For a little "touch of Home", we put our aluminum Christmas tree on the Bridge Gun Deck and strung Christmas tree lights from the periscopes.
