Off at 9:20 A.M. for Fla. & the Memorial for the 37 U.S.S. Stark dead. We were greeted by Sec. of Navy Webb, Admiral Trost (Chief of Naval Operations). Three Rear Admirals [Perry, Ilg, and Kalleres]. We went into the helicopter repair hangar—a gigantic bldg. now dressed as an auditorium. After the ceremony Nancy & I went up & down the rows greeting & hugging some 2 or 300 of the families of the deceased. It’s a heart breaking time. Then back to A.F.1 & on to Andrews Field. There we joined up with Rex (delivered by Dale) and got on Marine 1 & off to Camp D.—1st time in several weeks.
