|USS Norfolk (DL-1) during UNITAS VI, 1965|
The museum recently received several dozen photographs of USS Norfolk (DL-1) during UNITAS VI in 1965. UNITAS (Latin for "unity") is an annual exercise the U.S. Navy has with its South American allies. Norfolk participated in several UNITAS exercises and frequently served as the flagship. The operation has been ongoing since the 1950s. UNITAS LIII was just completed last week.
