I must have looked at a few 100 cav patches trying to find this one.

NTDS Part 5, scroll down to ENTERPRISE http://ethw.org/First-Hand:Testing_the_Naval_Tactical_Data_System_-_Chapter_5_of_the_Story_of_the_Naval_Tactical_Data_System

 

31 July 1964 - USS Enterprise (bottom), USS Long Beach (center), and the guided missile frigate USS Bainbridge made up "Task Force One," the first USN nuclear-powered task force. They were among the first ships to be equipped with NTDS, and they sailed around the world in 65 days without refueling or replenishment. .U. S. Navy photo
