Mediterranean deployment, 30 March 1967, when she embarked Marines of the 1st Battalion, 6th Marine
Regiment, at Morehead City and crossed the Atlantic in company with four minesweepers of Mine Division 83. Upon arriving at Aranci Bay, Sardinia,
19 April, the ship joined Amphibious Squadron 6, Task Force 61, and soon
participated in Exercise "Fairgame Five," a Franco-American amphibious exercise which brought together elements of the French Army, Navy, Commandos, and Foreign Legion,
as well as a joint Navy-Marine team.
