Off the coast of South Vietnam, February, 1968: The bridge crew of the 7th Fleet flagship USS Canberra directs fire as the ship's guns open up on targets in North Vietnam. "The barrages are constant and gun barrels wear out and are replaced," according to the 1968 photo caption. "One ship replaces another on the firing line as the deadly rain continues against the Communists."
