A beautiful, easy day—until I got a call from Frank C. In the Persian Gulf off the coast of Bahrain our Frigate the U.S.S. Stark was hit by 2 missiles fired by an Iraq Mirage F.1. The U.S.S. Wadell went to the scene—both ships made port. One Am. injured. We have filed a protest. Apparently the plane did not have visual aim but fired at a radar image. More bulletins through the day & situation looking worse. Dinner with Mermie & Dennis.
