CHIEF PETTY Officer Keith Lebling and Journalist 2nd Class Pete Hatzakos, both of Navy Broadcasting Service, interview CAPT. G.B. McEwen, commanding officer of the amphibious assault ship USS TRIPOLI (LPH-10), regarding damage to the vessel. The TRIPOLI, now in dry dock awaiting repairs, was damaged by an Iraqi mine that the ship struck while serving as a mine-clearing platform in the northern Persian Gulf on February 18 during Operation Desert Storm. The TRIPOLI was able to continue operations after damage control crews stopped the flooding caused by the explosion

U.S. National Archives

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.

Disclaimer: A work of the U.S. National Archives is "a work prepared by an officer or employee" of the federal government "as part of that person's official duties." In general, under section 105 of the Copyright Act, such works are not entitled to domestic copyright protection under U.S. law and are therefore in the public domain.
