r % m 1984 W€ST PflC Che Alamo mission San Antonio De valero In 1718 hy the authority of Spain ' s Viceroy of Mexico, Father Antonio de (Dlivares established the mission San Antonio de Valero in San Antonio. Che cornerstone of the chapel known today as the Alamo was laid in 1744. Named in honor of St. Anthony de Padua and the marques de valero, Spanish viceroy, the mission was founded for the purpose of Christianizing and educating the Indians. Che four acre mission establishment included stone living and teaching quarters for the converted Indians, and a two-story building for the monks. (The various buildings were situated around a verdant, irrigated plaza and enclosed by the thick quadrangle well. Che mission ' s activities eventually ceased and it was abandoned in 1793 and the mission archives were removed to San Fernanda Parish Church in San Antonio. It was before fllexico ' s revolution from Spanish rule that a company of Spanish soldiers from Alamo del Parras in Mexico, used the mission buildings as barracks. Chus ioas probably derived the name " Alamo " . Che Alamo defenders held the garrison through 13 days of siege. Subsequently, the Alamo was used as a commissary by the United States Government, and as a Confederate quartermaster depot during the Civil War. Care of the sacred shrine finally was given by the State of Cexas to the Daughters of the Republic of Cexas, who are the present custodians. USS ACAm© (CSD-33) " lDe deliver anything, anytime, anywhere " USS ACAm© (CSD-33) u as built by the Ingalls Shipbuilding Corporation of Pascagoula, Mississippi.

Assigned to the Pacific Fleet, the ACAJll© passed westward through the Panama Canal, arrived in her home part, San Diego, California on 13 ©ctober 1956 and reported to Commander Amphibious Farce, u. $. Pacific Fleet for duty. In the fallowing months, ACAm© and her crew successfully completed shake down training and Amphibinus draining, milestones in the attainment of combat readiness. Finally after numerous inspections by various senior commanders, ACAm© was pronounced ready to take her place in the Fleet.

Iter well deck, 395 feet long and 48 feet wide, can be flooded ta a depth of 10 feet by an elaborate push button ballast system. £his large area, plus the expansive super deck and mezzanine deck, afford ACAm© the ability to carry 3 CCU ' s, the largest of the amphibious craft, or 20 CCm ' s or 40 CCVP ' s. As many as 200 2 ton trucks, for combat, can be transported at one time.

ACAmo is on her way to IDestPac 1984. Che next one hundred and eighty-nine days will bring new experiences to the creui. During the cruise the ship will experience casualties to her boilers and stern gate, but u ill recover and meet many commitments. Our schedule will take us to the Japanese ports of yokahama and Numaau; the Okinawan ports of Buckner Bay, Oura ©an, and Naha. Che ship will also travel to Incheon, Pusan, and Pohang in South Korea. Of course, we will also have port calls in Subic Bay, Republic of the Philippines and Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. During IDestPac ' 84, the crew of the " mighty ma " has worked hard and played hard. We ' ve demonstrated the pride and professionalism that is dominant onboard ACAm©, and, indeed, lived up to our motto - " li)e Deliver " . 65 DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY U.S.S. ALAMO (LSD-33) FPO SAN FRANCISCO 96660 NOTICE of Eventual Return Issued as Solemn Warning to the ffiives, Girl- friends, Relatives, and Friends of the men onboard 11SS ACAm© (CSD-33) Pery soon he will be back in your midst, dehydrated and demoralised, to rightfu lly take his place once again as a human being. Engaged in life, liberty, and a somewhat belated pursuit of happiness far an unspecified period of time - he will be your responsibility. In making your preparations to welcome him home, you must make allow- ances far the crude environment which he has been living in for the period of time he has unwillingly absented himself. He must be handled with extreme care. Be tolerant of his language, his vocabulary has changed, with or with- out accent you must understand the Navy grammar is slightly different from that which is used by real people. In a relatively short period of time he can be taught to speak properly. Far the first few days he is home, until he is completely housebraken, be especially careful when he is in the company of women, particularly those who are young and beautiful. His intentions are sincere, although at times may he dishonorable. Bear in mind that beneath his tanned and rugged exterior there is a heart of gold, the only thing of value he has left, treat him with kindness and occasionally with a glass of rum and coke, and now and then a little " tTCC " . you will be surprised how fast you can rehabilitate that which is now a hollow shell of the proud civilian you once knew. Don ' t feel hurt if he sits down at the dinner table and feeds himself as if someone were going to take his food away from him. If he shunspotataes, rice, beans, scrambled eggs, cheeseburgers, hotdags, stew and chili mac, don ' t be upset (they all remind him of the last few months). Break him in slowly and he will soon adjust to normal eating habits. Please show no alarm if he prefers to stir his coffee with an oversized spoon. Don ' t be bewildered when he calls his food " chow " , his bed a " rack " , a movie a " flick " , or the floor a " deck " . Don ' t be amazed when he salutes in the company of superiors. Never make a flattering remark about the Air Force or the Army, and don ' t even mention the Navy. Please refrain from blowing any whistles or sounding gongs while he is in the shower (it might emharass the neighbors). He is actually harmless although his actions may seem a little strange at first. Just remember, he has been at sea for quite some time. Keep the refrigerator full of food, mix, and coke, and the bar with Bacardi and San miguel and break out the " civies " as he will be home in less than sixty days.
