Mogadishu, Somalia. The largest city in a country where the age of conscription in the war against Ethiopia is 15 years old. Where the average yearly income is equal to about twenty U.S. dollars, and the drinking water packs more punch than MD 20 20 and prune juice combined. Camel rides are cheap, if not free, and a good dust bath afterwards will rid you of the fleas. Somalia had not seen a U.S. Ship in over a year. Hence, we were eager to do as much for our less fortunate brothers as we could, in a true American spirit. We threw a party for the U.S. Emissaries, and opened our ship ' s stores for any ambassadores to Somalia. There was even a soccer game with our ship and the Somalian Nation- al Soccer Team, in which we graciously allowed them to trounce over us. Also, a Softball game occurred with simu- ar results. Meanwhile, HT1 Vallenca (bottom photo, (left), second from left) was busy organizing an effort to benefit the " Friends of the Chil- dren Orphanages " . They needed new steps, new shelves, desks, wiring and plumbing repaired, and paint applied to the interior and ex- terior of a nursery. We supplied these necessities, plus Medical and Dental care. Medical sup- plies, beds and bed- dings, and amuse- ment. We even got to play with the kids And when all was said and done, one could recall back to then and call it truly a good port of call for Human Relations Thank you, HT1 Vallenca and friends. 1 185
