USS Scorpion (SSN-589)
Ties up alongside USS Tallahatchie County (AVB-2) outside Claywall Harbor, Naples, Italy, 10 April 1968.
This view shows the submarine's line handling crew aft of her sail, just as she has been made fast and the National Ensign transferred to its "in port" position. Scorpion was lost with all hands in May 1968, while returning to the U.S. from this Mediterranean deployment.
