I know, I know. Different carrier. And I can't seem to find out precisely where the USS Harry Truman was on June 18th. But I know where the ship was on the 8th - Marseille. And unless some things have drastically changed from many, many moons ago, such a visit was likely to have lasted between eight and twelve days - unless American sailors these days have developed allergies that require them to go romping about France wearing swimming goggles.
