After a few days of pleasant cruising, we rounded Diamond Head and steamed into Pearl Har bor, to be welcomed by a bevy of winsome hula dancers on the pier. Of course there was work to be done, cargo to be loaded in support of our embarked Marines, but there was also time for relaxa- t. h . . . . . ion, spare ours spent sunning, surfing and sipping Mai Tais on the beach at Waikiki or drivin 7 5 through Oahu's pineapple fields, green hills and misty old volcanos. Soon repleted by the pleasure f H o awaii, however, we continued on our way. The days grew warm, the seas calm and blue, as we headed southwest across the Pacific. Then, after many days, we caught our first glimpse of the exotic Orient in Subic Bay Philip ines, and v H P the truly amazing town outside the gates. While most of us enjoyed Olongapo, some had the addi- tional opportunity to travel by bus for an overnight in Manila, and then by dugouts to Pagsanjan Falls, through a deep and narrow gorge. Our only other contact with the Phillippines was at Mindoro where along with a Marine training exercise, we conducted Operations Swings and Michelangelo. We built and delivered a set of swings to a childrenis school in the town of San Jose and we painted the school building. The first six months of our cruise were spent with the Amphibious Ready Group, and in this ca- pacity we conducted four amphibious landings in Viet Nam. With the exception of our assault beaches, we had little opportunity to see the country. One of the highlights of our town there, how- ever, was our beach party at Cam Rahn Bay, where the beach is white and san dy with steep green hills behind, and th ' ' e water is clear and blue - now a growing military supply port but a potentially great tourist resort. During our tour with the Ready Group, we also paid a very short visit to Okinawa, the keystone of the Pacific. We anchored in Buckner Ba and r b y an our oats to White Beach, where taxi cabs drove us past fields of sugarcane into the local villages, anonymously named 1151, 2, 25, 3 etc. Some of us went on farther to Kadena Air Force Base and to the larger towns of Koza and Naha. Although the island was not our most exciting port, it was a welcome relief from Viet Nam. We were relieved from the Ready Group in August, and left Subic for our first real liberty port - Yokosuka, Japan. Yoko is best known for Thieve's Alley, an area crowded with bars and souve- nir shops, and lit up at night by frantic neon signs in Japanese and English. Although greatly modernized, there are still signs of "Old Japani' left in Yokosuka N storekeepers bow in greeting and in thanks for a purchase, older people often wear traditional Japanese clothing, and there are nO beggars in the street. Many of us left Yokosuka to see other cities nearby: Tokyo, exciting and sophisticated, Yokohama, modern and one of the centers of Japanese merchant shipping, Kama- kura, an old city with its Great Buddha. Others spent their money at the Fleet Exchange and came away with bargains in tape recorders, silverware, china and the like. - -. -. .1 -. .. ., -V-.,. - --.,- '-9 -f 'A 2 -iwf r -.'u'4- -1- ' V qu ' -SizgiefgvLEr.i:s:1g'iiff?Q-f'iw2I-5455.515 'V L 9 ' it W' af' -,A- iv ., 1. 4 .

Unfortunately, we saw little of Korea except for a rocky green coastline. On one afternoon, however, we did get ashore for a beach party, tak- ing along a couple-of footballs and some San Miguel left over from the Phillippines. Several curi- ous local residents came down to the beach to watch, and we suppose, were greatly amused by what they saw. After our second week in Japan, we set out for the grand finale of our WestPac cruise - Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a city where little incidents have a habit of becoming international ones, and we furthered our already shining reputation by winning the Good Conduct Award. ln five days of fun-filled liberty there wasn't a single case of misconduct. Here, in the worldis greatest bargain center, we filled our souvenir lockers to overflowing, and when we returned to San Diego we were probably the best-dressed paupers in the state. In between fittings at the tailors, we managed to see just about all of Hong Kong there is to see - Victoria Peak, Tiger Balm, the millions of little shops in downtown Hong Kong, Aberdeen, the beaches, Kowloon, and some of us visited the New Terri- tories with Communist China just a stone's throw away. Five days passed all too quickly, and just as we were catching our breath, the Special Sea and Anchor detail was called away and we began that interminable stretch of 13 days to the 50th state. We used those days at sea ftwo Fridays wouldnit you knowj to prepare the ship for our arrival in San Diego. We sailed in Pearl Harbor with fresh paint everywhere to get some gas, fresh milk, and pineapples and to sample the expensive hospitality of the Islands. V , j Even as we left Hawaii there was an air of anticipation everywhere. Each night it became har- der to sleep. Finally, on the morning of the 27th of September, Pt. Loma appeared on the horizon. With our flags unfurled we steamed proudly into the harbor to be met by those same families and friends who waved goodbye eight long months before. When the first line went over, we greeted them with a CHARGE that must have frightened half of National City. The best part of any de- ployment, we were home.

' The land of transistors, 90 yen taxis, funny bathing hab- its, and the fastest growing standard of living in the World, Japan was our first real port for RSZR. We took real advan- tage of the opportunity. The ship nearly sank under the burden of souvenirs and electronic gadgets. We wandered off to Toyko, the World's largest city, with its weird sense of the past and its startling realization of the present. We stopped by Kamakura to see the famous Great Buddha. We partied at the Club Alliance and began to call Thieve's Alley home. In the final analysis, Japan provided lots of recreation but precious little rest. ,Off HJ V igibwvf M Y 1 L I-,-,,, a . ,,,., The Imperial Palace l Olympic buildin of D A considerable number of us took time to see a little of the country while in Japan. ln Tokyo we wondered at the Tokyo Tower, the highest in the world, and at the blending of old and new.

'EMZQ-5 15.1.73 A D THE SHIP THAT GOT US THERE USS ALAMO QLSD-331 was -built by lngalls Shipbuild- ing Corporation of Pascagoula, Mississippi. The keel was laid on 11 October 1954- and launching was on 20 January 1956. After commissioning on 25-August 1956, she sailed to Galveston, Texas on a goodwill cruise and then to Nor- folk to be loaded and outfitted. ALAMO arrived in San Diego on 13 October 1956 and joined the Amphibious Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet. A On her first Western Pacific cruise in 1957, ALAMO participated in the Bikini atomic tests before going on to Yokohama, Japan. Her second and third cruises, in 1958 and 1959 added new names to a growing list of ports visit- ed. In 1960 she underwent overhaul at Todd Shipyard in Seattle, Washington which was followed by training and operations off the West Coast. On her fourth WESTPAC cruise in 1961, she became a part of the Amphibious Ready Group. During her fifth trip to WESTPAC, which began in Oc- tober of 1962, ALAMO was diverted to Guam with emer- gency relief supplies to that typhoon-stricken island. Later that same year she provided emergency food relief to the flood-stricken island of 'Mindanao in the Philippines. ln 1963 ALAMO entered Bethlehem Steel Corporation Shipyard in Long Beach for her second major overhaul. The spring of 1964 again found her on a relief mission, this time to earthquake ravaged Kodiak, -Alaska. ln June of that year she departed on her ,sixth trip to the Western Pa- cific. lt was on this cruise that she earned her first medal, the Armed Forces Expeditionary for Viet Nam operations. During the summer of 1965 ALAMO was chosen twice to make special lifts to WESTPAC. lt was during the sec- ond of these that she made her first combat landing at Qui Nhon, Viet Nam. ALAMO holds the Squadron Battle Efficiency Award for the third consecutive time and proudly wears awards for excellence in Communications, Operations, Engineer- ing, and Amphibious Warfare.

We loaded our Marines at Camp Pendelton and Pearl Harbor, and upon arrival in the Philippines made preparations with our comrades in arms, Princeton and Pickaway, for imminent opera- tions. We began by conducting a brief training exercise, Operation Hilltop IV, at Mindoro, a Philippine island south of Luzon. As we would do again in future operations, we carried and launched a wave of amphibious tractors, two LCM-8's and an LCU, all loaded with troops and equipment, and comprising the major landing craft capability of the Ready Group. Acting as Primary Control Ship, we directed the boats to the right beach at the right time, and later did the same for all four of our actual combat operations. Our first landing in Viet Nam was Operation Jackstay, still the only operation of its kind conducted in Viet Nam. We anchored before sunrise in the shallow muddy water at the mouth of the Soirap River, about 30 miles south of Saigon. Working in darkness, we loaded our troops into their vehicles, ballasted down, launched our boats and directed them to the beach on a small point of land over seven miles away. At the same time, Princeton landed troops on the beach by helicopter. In the days to follow, some of us had the opportunity to travel up Viet Cong controlled rivers, carrying water to the LST's anchored in the Soirap or transporting Marines between various locations in the marshy river delta area. Our boats were well armed with machine guns, rifles, armored jackets and battle helmets, on several occasions we were thankful to have been so well prepared. Most of us, however, stayed abroad in support of those ashore, but we all earned the satisfaction of a job well done. These were certainly among the most exciting tasks we performed while in the Ready Group. After each of our operations we were able to return to Subic Bay for repairs, supplies and liberty, but it was never long before we were underway again for Viet Nam. Our second landing was at Baie Chon Mai for Operation Osage. This was a much less demanding operation than Jackstay. Once ashore the Marines had little need for support and we spent several quiet days at anchor, although we were constantly prepared to meet any situation that might arise in that potentially dangerous area. After Osage we off-loaded our Marines at Chu Lai, and sailed for Okinawa to embark another group. We completed a second training exercise at Mindoro, and then commenced our third landing in Viet Nam - Operation Deckhouse l at Vung Xuan Dai. As in Osage, once we had fulfilled our major responsibility of getting the Marines ashore, we had a limited involvement in the operation other than to observe the quiet white beach during the day, the falre and starshells at night, and to ,maintain our readiness. Our final operation, Deckhouse H, was conducted only a few miles south of the North Viet Nam border and the demilitarized zone. As in all of our operations, the morning of D-Day was a memorable experience - anchoring in the dark on an unfamiliar coastline, launching the LVT,s and boats in darkness, and not know- ing what might be waiting on the beach. However, all went smoothly and little opposition was encountered. After several days, our Marines went inland to join with Operation Hastings, one of the largest operations conducted in Viet Nam so far. The operation successfully concluded, we returned to Subic Bay to be re- lieved as Ready Group LSD by the Thomaston. Our six months with the Ready Group meant different things at different times - professional challenge, routine chores, excitement, boredom, hard work and long hours. But mostly it was an unusual opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge in Viet Nam and to be of more than routine service to our country., 1 I 9 The Marines wait for the Word to embark in their vehicles for the movement ashore, catching the last few minutes of rest that they are apt to have for some time.

During the deployment, ALAMO consistently performed her mission in a manner which drew the attention and praise of all associated with her. Performing the ship's mission is a resound- ing phrase coined by the upper echelon thinkers that means one thing to the men ofa shipis crew - WORK! The men of ALAlVlO's crew worked many long and hard hours to earn the reputation and awards that the ship now holds. They are you ng and old, from all walks oflife, of different tal- ents and skills - hut alike in the unifying desire to show all that their ship is the best. They are men who have tolerated many hardships and deprivations in serving on her and they leap to her defense at the very hint ofa slur. To the crew for their loyalty and devotion, for their spirit of coop- eration and teamwork. for their long hours of sweat and even tears, and to their loved ones who shared their hours of loneliness, we dedicate this book - the Crewis Book.

Well, we clocked up 22,600. We also conducted 15 underway replenishments, sent 11,318 people on liberty and advanced 115 people in rating. The shipls office and personnel office turned out 193,000 sheets of paper work. We had 437 helicopter landings fand an equal num- ber of launchings of course.j We anchored 51 times, spread 2,955 gallons of paint, and wore out 372 swabs. In order to steam all those miles we used 2,724,724 gallons of fuel oil, 16,086,430 gallons of fresh water, and produced 2,359,800 kil- owatt hours of electricity. We kept going by drinking 120,000 cans of cold drinks, eating 85,128 pounds of meat, and smoking over 3,000,000 cigarettes and 20,000 cigars. The surface search radar antenna rotated 34,154,240 times and the picket boat circled the ship 17,128 times. To support our efforts in Japan and Hong Kong, the disbursing office paid 3502,295.
