In the next Proceedings
Next month's Proceedings will have a "now" look to it. The cover story will deal with one of the most potent of all naval threats: the cruise missile. In addition, a former numbered fleet commander makes a provocative suggestion—that the Navy do away with numbered fleet commanders—and the commanding officer of the USS Claude V. Ricketts (DDG-5) provides a first-person account of his ship's role in extinguishing fires on board the cruiser Belknap (CG-26).
