Yeah - the nearest Carrier had all planes on deck armed with nukes - Duh.

The nearest Carrier wasn't anywhere near close enough to assist. It steamed at flank speed toward the area, but the Pueblo was already in a NK port, and the crew removed by the time the Carrier was on station.

Yeah - RGR - my memory is a bit fuzzy now days. But I still have a woodie over this incident.
