St. Petersburg, Russia (Jul. 3, 2003) -- The guided missile frigate USS Nicholas (FFG 47) arrives pier side in St. Petersburg as a Russian Naval Band plays on the pier. The port visit included a Fourth of July observance and a birthday commemoration of U.S. and Russian naval hero Adm. John Paul Jones, solidifying ties between the two navies. It was the first visit of a U.S. naval ship to the city since 1996. Embarked aboard Nicholas was Commander Sixth Fleet Vice Adm. Scott A. Fry. John Paul Jones served as an Admiral for the Russian Navy after fighting in the Revolutionary War.  U.S. Navy photo by Lt. Leonardo Day.  (RELEASED)
