USS HENRY CLAY SSBN-625
DEPARTING THE TENDERS
Here the ship was just leaving the tenders USS
Hunley (AS-31) and USS Proteus
(AS-19). Having two tenders in port, together, was extremely rare in Guam,
Marianas Islands, where these photos were taken. As it turns out, the Hunley
had recently arrived to relieve the Proteus. Shortly after this picture was taken,
the Proteus returned to Mare Island, California, for a major overhaul. After the
overhaul, the Proteus returned to Guam and resumed its duties tending the
submarines of Submarine Squadron Fifteen.
