Homecoming of the USS Valley Forge (CV-45) in San Diego, California. Wives of the sailors wave as USS prepares to tie up at quay wall. Mayor of San Diego Joshua H. Bean speaks. Consul of Sweden, Waldo Homburg speaks. Consul of Norway speaks. Flags of both those nations and State flag of California are seen. Vice Admiral Sprague speaks. Miss California stand with flowers and waves. Spectators in the background. A band plays. (Presence of the Scandinavian representatives may be related to the cooperation of USS Valley Forge and other U.S. Naval vessels, during production of the motion picture "Windjammer" about the voyage of the Norwegian training vessel, Christian Radich.) Note: Korean war demands required the USS Valley Forge to resupply and sail again on December 6, 1950.
