THE UNITED STATES SIXTH FLEET
POWER FOR PEACE
The United States Sixth Fleet stands ready to support and protect the interests
of the United States and her allies in the Mediterranean, through "Peace" and
good will if possible, through "Power' ' if necessary.
Normally consisting of approximately fifty ships, thirty thousand men, and over
two hundred Navy aircraft, augmented at times by a special anti-submarine force,
the fleet contains the equipment and material necessary to operate independently
of shore bases in the event of hostilities.
For carrying out its operational commitments the Sixth Fleet is divided into
three task forces. The attack carrier striking force and the amphibious force, with
approximately two thousand combat ready marines embarked, provide the strong
arm while the service force maintains the fleets mobility and independence from
shore bases providing fuel, ammunition, hardware and groceries at sea.
The offensive and defensive -capabilities of the fleet are maintained at a peak
of readiness and efficiency by continually practicing and improving tried and
proven concepts as well as by testing and evaluating new ones. The Might of the
Sixth Fleet stands ready for use with the newest in weapons and tactics if
necessary, but peace through mutual understanding and mutual trust is its primary
goal-its primary weapon the People-to-People program.
1962 MEDITERRANEAN CRUISE
From exhaustive days of fleet operations to relaxed times
in hospitable Mediterranean ports this cruise will long be
remembered by those men aboard the Sumner. The at sea
periods were ever filled with the many exercises necessary to
maintain the fleet and the individual ships in a high state of
readiness. Fleet anti-air exercises and anti-submarine
exercises, NATO exercises, engineering drills, plane
guarding, and underway refueling and replenishment
were the rule broken by welcomed spells of independent
steaming, holiday routine, and even a task force
swim call. ,However it was the in port periods that
were anxiously awaited, and for small wonder.
Sumner sailors left their tracks throughout the
ancient ruins in Greece, Italy, and Malta, over the
Maritime Alps, on the beaches of the "Isle of Capri",
throughout the French and Italian Rivieras, and at
such attractions as Rome, Pisa, Florence, Cannes,
and many others.
The ship sponsored a party for orphans and school
children in Greece, donated blood to the Greek Red
Cross, opened the ship for visitors in many ports,
and participated in various other good will activities.
There were many events for the crew also such as
a ships "Tea" party, athletics, crew rowing races,
smokers on the flight deck, and even a French style
show on the fantail. Sumner was on hand for the
earthquakes in Naples, the flight of Elizabeth Taylor and
Richard Burton through Civitivecchia, and can truthfully say
no other Sixth Fleet ship had closer contacts on the French
Riviera than we did.
Athletics also gained popular support as witnessed -' by- a
fine record of 19-6 for basketball, 21-7 for softball, 4-2 for
football and a decisive O-1 tug of war loss to the HMS
Broadsword in Malta,

It was a bleak day in Mayport, When, after a day's
delay due to bad weather, the SUMNER pulled out
for her seven month Mediterranean appointment in
company with the BIGELOW, LAWE, ZELLARS and
BRISTOL to rendezvous with a tanker, the USS ALLA-
GASH. After being continuaI1y"Rocked" and "Rolled"
by waves of up to thirty-five feet in height for eleven
days, on March 20 We passed Gibraltar and entered the
land of midnight refuelings, large fleet operations,
short nights. It was a battered ship' and a tiredierew
that relieved the USS SOLEY off Majorioa on March 22 but reoupera-
tion was rapid and the crossing soon belonged to the past.
REFUELING AT SEA

STROMBOL, STRAIGHTS OF MESSINA
Our first scheduled port was Thessaloniki, Greece for a two week tender period and liberty so
the SUMNER set out for the Eastern Mediterranean, passing the active Volcano Stromboli and
navigating the Straights of Messina, between Sicily and the Italian mainland on the way.
Arriving in Thessaloniki on April 2, after twenty-four continuous days at sea, we moored in a
nest of five destroyers alongside the tender USS TIDEWATER.
Athletics, historical tours, and solid land were the prime attractions here.

Greece is a land of great
natural beauty and ancient ruins ,
and startling contrasts. Unhurried
in her way of life the old and the
new exist side by side. Here
modern busses compete on
narrow roads with donkey carts
while modern western clothing
and ageless local dress mingle
freely in the towns.
Greece has a rich heritage of
great civilizations and famous
men. In Verea is a monument to
St. Paul. Behind this monument
are the actual steps from which
he taught hundreds of years ago.

The "At Sea" period following Kavalla was a busy one. Besides small arms practice the ship
exercised at general quarters and was in turn exercised by the Quarterly Physical Fitness Exams
given under the sadistically alert eyes of our Chief Hospital Corpsman and our Chief Master-at

The British Island base of Malta was the next
stop, and a very interesting one. Many past
civilizations have contributed to Malta's growth
and each has left its influences. Still in evidence
are the influences of the Greeks, Turks, and
Romans and in a negative sense of the Germans
and their ninety day bombardment during World
War Two. The most prominant features are the
continuous walls and the predominant brown look
of the cities, brought about by using sandstone
as the main building material.
The British ship HMS BROADS WORD was our
host ship and did a lot to flavor the visit. From
parties for the officers and chiefs to a tug-of -

hospitality of "The Bl od B' "

directed and enthusiastically received.

Civitivecchia was the scene of a phenomenon rare in the annals of Naval History. In the midst
of a cold spring came a message from COMSIXTHFLT saying that on May 24 the uniform shifts
from blues to whites. Almost uncannily on the evening of May 23 the skies cleared, and May 24
found summer entering Civitivecchia and SUMNER in Whites. Sort of makes you Wonder who pulls
In stateside preparations for Civitivecchia had been made. Over 100 cases of Busch Bavarian,
Budweiser and Schlitz "Tea" had been brought on board. All was put to use in a series of "Tea"

Eight days and one fleet anchorage later, SUMNER arrived at the French Riviera port of Golfe
Juan in ideal weather- clear skies and calm seas. Suddenly in the early morning of June 8, without
warning, a gale struck with winds of over forty knots and SUMNER started dragging anchor. Despite
all possible efforts the ship quickly went aground and just as quickly the storm abated-its damage
Through the combined efforts of all hands, near-by American ships, and a French Net Tender
we were soon freed and proceeded to the dry docks at Toulon, France for inspection of damages
Sporting a new sonar dome and two new screws, SUMNER emerged ten days later ready for
operations and headed for Cannes.

Following Messina was a busy sea period terminated by two weeks
tender availability in Naples during which the finishing touches were
applied to the ship prior to going home. It was a busy time for all with
with a lot of work to do.
This sea period and the one following San Remo were to be our last
two Sixth Fleet Operating periods this cruise. It saw us engaged in
typical Fleet Operations plus the not-so-typical plane guarding for
the Nuclear Carrier E TERPRI E.

WHY WE WERE THERE ....
Why did we leave MaYP0ft for seven momlfj
and travel a third of the waY afolfnd the WSH d
to operate in a distant sea? WIIY did th? United
States spend the money' use the Ships,-any
Separate us from our families for this cruise.
The U.s. SIXTH Fleer, locafed in We Med'
iterranean Sea, is as sound an expendltufe Qf
men, ships, and SUPP1ieS as can be made m
this day of international tensions. The SIXTH
Fleet has become a symbol of strength to our
friends as well as a mighfY SYmb01 of our de'
termination to preserve liberty and jl1stiC6- The
fleet in the Mediterranean is our instrument of
national policygwith peace, stability, and good
will as its major purposes. The aim of the
SIXTH Fleet is friendship, but it also stands
ready to wage any kind of warfare, limited or
general, conventional or atomic.
The nations of the free world are largely an
oceanic confederation. Commerce on the seas
is the lifeblood of the free world, and sea power
ensures that this lifeblood may flow unhindered.
The United States SIXTH Fleet is a part of the
insurance for the free world in the Mediterranean.
That is why we were there as part of that fleet.
The SIXTH Fleet normally consists of fifty
to sixty ships and is a balanced, mobile and
self-substaining force capable of more d ,
trve power than all the forces of World War II
combined. During its stay, Destroyer Squadron
SIXTEEN, one of the several destroyer squadrons
COUSWHIIY maintained in the Mediterranean,
played a significant and vitalrole i ' h
n t e SIXTH
Elilet- Desfmyef Squadron SIXTEEN ships car-
rie out the many tasks of which destroyers are
Capable, such as, anti-submarine warfare, shore
bombardment, and serving as rescue ships for
carrier flight operations. Fast, versatile, alert
and ready, the ships of our squadron ranged from
Gibraltar to Istanbul, beyond into the Red Sea
Black Sea, Indian Ocean, and Persian Gulf,
doing their jobs with the best of our capabilitie 7
DESII V 162
The good-will component of the SIXTH
Fleet's mission should not be overlooked. The
in-port periods are primarily for recreation,
sightseeing, and relaxationgyet- all hands fully
realized that they also had the important task
of being working ambassadors of good will for
the United States. Church parties, exchange of
official calls, parties for the underpriviledged
and orphans, and distribution of clothes to the
needy were some of the ways in which our good
will mission was accomplished. Our destroyer-
men made many personal contacts, developed
many good friends, and found that mutual re-
spect through better understanding resulted.
Every man ashore on liberty was an individual
representative of the United States.
Our purpose in the Mediterranean was to
assist in promoting friendship and good will
among free nations and to ensure lasting peace.
As Destroyer Squadron SIXTEEN departed the
Mediterranean, the following words were re-
ceived from VAM McDonald, Commander SIXTH
Fleet, "The performance and generalsmartness
of Destroyer Squadron SIXTEEN was commend-
able during this Med Deployment. Destroyer
Squadron SIXTEEN ships have been a credit to
SIXTH Fleet and to all Destroyermen. To all
hands ---- Well done".
As the recent Chief of Naval Operations,
Admiral Arleigh Burke, once quoted:
"We are destroyermen, a big ship man would
have trouble filling our shoes. We like to
think that we would have no trouble filling his.
We have learned the lesson of self-reliance
of not being afraid of a little rough living on
any tough assignment. We are real sailormen,
the destroyermen of the fleet. When things
are getting too hard for anyone else, they're
getting just right for us.
