Overview

The Range. Think of it as a shooting gallery that circles the globe. A vital link was forged in 1966, when NASA converted a World War II tanker into the USNS Vanguard, one of the most sophisticated communication centers ever to sail the high seas.

Range Rats At Sea is an account of one crewmember's attempt to squeeze a lifetime of adventure into two short years. Success, however, hinged upon his ability to win the heart of a shipmate.
