Archerfish World Travels
The following is a chronology of the world travels of ARCHERFISH and Crews from 1960 through 1968. This history of Her travels was patiently and lovingly compiled, over a six year span, from official, declassified Naval records by Ken Henry. Thank you Ken, from all your Shipmates for this chance to revist the time we spent aboard ARCHERFISH and remember where we were!
