Re: MLF Mixed Manning demonstration 1964-65 aboard USS Claude V. Ricketts DDG-5
I just got an automatic pause/hold response; let's see if this gets through soon. -gh
My earlier response to Felix contains the biblio citation info on, so far, the most comprehensive article on the MMD exercise, which would have been easy to miss, so I repeat it here, just in case: There is a detailed account of the DDG-5 experience with the Mixed Manning Demonstration by the British military and political scholar Andrew Priest ("In Common Cause": The NATO Multilateral Force and the Mixed Manning Demonstration on the USS Claude V. Ricketts, 1964-1965) in the July 2005 (Vol. 69 No. 3) issue of The Journal of Military History.
