"The sea is so wide and my boat is so small .
-Prayer of the Breton Fishermen
Engulfed in a typical Newport fog, we cautiously stood out ol Narragansett Bay at 1030
on ll july, our voyage already delayed two and a hall hours by the zero visibility. There were
eight ol us then-all the ships of Destroyer Squadron I0-steaming in a double-diamond forma-
tion en route to Annapolis where we arrived at noon on the twellth. Most of us spent the
evening in XVashington after surmounting the ortleals ol a sudden squall on the Severn B
r r r . l . y
noon of july 14, 35 midshipmen had descended upon us, bearing enough additional gear to
cause the DC.-X some concern, Soon the squadron was headed down the Chesapeake in an orderly
column, out through Hampton Roads and to the open sea where we set our course for Bermuda.
This was to have been an enjoyable cruise-stops at Gibraltar, Cannes, Trieste, Ancona-all on
this visit to the Mediterranean.
Th ' was 0045 on 15 july. The Captain was in his sea cabin, Mr. Simonton
the OOD, Dazey had the Quartermaster watch, DCl'1l1S was at the helm. Stubblefield was
watching the steam pressure in Nam Control. Everything was running quietly and well. And
then a messa e was flashed to us from COMDESRON 10-we had been ordered to proceed
back to Norfolk. At the moment, no one was sure why. But the Chiefs picked up a news broad-
' ' ' c ' Ad S
cast on TV before breakfast. It talked about a revolt in Iraq and the fact that the Unite tates
had landed troops in Lebanon. It all htted together when we arrived in Norfolk and read
the press. The prospects were not good and we all knew it. Our squadron was put on our
l e ulated that we were
hour alert and much scuttlebutt naturally ensued. The Norfo k papers sp c
to escort an amphibious force to the eastern lNI ed.: there was talk ol disembarking the midship-
' ' ' ' A d water-
Nleanwhile we loaded to l00U capacity of ammunition, fuel, food, stores, an
men. . . L U
we were ready to go at any moment. Liberty was granted on the base in Norfolk. but even
this went by the boards when there was ammo to be loaded on l7 july.

Un I8 -Iuly we were briefed about a
possible iiiovt-tiit-iit ol an ampliih. lorce
to the Beirut area. But then we were
ortlered to tliree days ol "ops" in the
Virginia Capes area with the Benham
and the Antietam. The latest news we
reteived informed us that the tension
had eased in the niiddle east. ,-Xt l730
on 22 July, orders arrived which sent
us to Vieques in the Carribbean as an
eseort lor 'TRQXNSPHIBRON 8. This
was lor :i practice landing alter which
the entire unit might be sent to the
Med. Twerity-four hours later we rendez-
voused with the Benhzim and the
Antietam and headed south.
f' -- "L
DESRON I0 anchored at Vieques
early in the afternoon of 26 July. It was
extremely hot and we would all have
preferred to be on our way to the Med.
The 28th found us participating in an
air shoot oll' Culebra and we spent the
night anchored off the small hamlet of
San Ildelonso. lVe conducted a sur-
face shoot on the 29th and returned to
Vieques. We departed Vieques at 0930
on the 30th and proceeded to Roosevelt
Roads for refueling, then cranked our
speed up to 27 knots and arrived along-
side the Sherman in San -Iuan at 20f4U.
That we enjoyed San juan is an under-
statement-it was our first real port on
the cruise and it was pleasant to get
ashore after our prolonged delay at

NVQ officially joined Task Force 60 on 20 August and than was a day to remember: we screened,
lifeguardecl, replenished, relueled, hred at a sleeve, and plane guarded for the Saratoga that
night. But we learned quickly that this would be a rough-and-tumble outht and We were pre-
pared for anything from then on.

We lay at anchor in Beirut
for over three weeks. It was an

to Mr. Arnheiter.
