Stack logos weren't anything new for the Navy...they had them for years, but the Arneb didn't. On the chance the Capn would be receptive to such a suggestion, I broached the idea to him, and he thought it was a good one.
It's been over a half-century now, and it has long been forgotten who did the art work. Note the Twenty-four Inch Carbon Arc Search Light...we had two...the other being on the other side of the stack. Primarily used for signaling, it was seldom used, but it did get attention when it was. Below see one of the Signal Bridge's Ammo Lockers.
