USS RANGER CVA 61 AT BREMERTON 2002
Photos submitted by JOE SWANKIE
V-4 DIVISION 1957 - 1959

I was fortunate enough to get a tour on the ship in 
October 2002 . My wife and daughter were very 
impressed. The tour guides did an excellent job 
and we saw quite a bit of the ship.

I really was happy with my little point and 
shoot automatic 35 mm camera, especially 
when we used flashlights to help light some 
of the compartments . The picture of the bunks 
stacked three high was in total darkness , but 
the guide went out of his way to get us down 
there I figured I would give it a shot.
