KGB T58 MinesweeperOne of the objectives of Operation Kennel Freelance was a freedom of navigation exercise. The line the Soviets had drawn and claimed as internal waters was not recognized by the United States government. Only hours after arriving on station Arkansas crossed the line. A Krivak closes on the port beam. Captain Twardy makes a call.Four days later Arkansas received orders to cross the line again. The Soviets were waiting and Arkansas was in the news.
