I went digging for pictures today because a friend referred me to TogetherWeServed, a website for veterans.
At this time, I was on board the USS Leahy (CG-16). We were anchored at Al Masirah off the coast of Oman. I remember that we were hanging off the side of the ship on a scaffold, painting the green Battle Efficiency "E" on the side of bridge wing signifying our operational expertise. After days upon days of being inside and monitoring RADAR scopes, this was a good day. It was 1984. I was 22.
