We were nearing the equator and King Neptunus Rex was sched- uled to come aboard and receive new members into his Royal Domain. The Squadron Commander passed the word for all ships to be prepared to receive him. Scuttlebutt that the tt01d Mani, was a polywog and would also be initiated caused con- siderable speculation among the crew. A few minutes after noon on 12 December his presence was announced and King Rex and his Royal Party made their appearance. The Captain relinquished command of the ship and was ordered below. The Skull and Crossbones was hoisted to the peak of the foremast and initiation proceedings commenced. There were 301 poly- wogs initiated that day and the Royal Barber had a busy after- noon before Neptune disappeared at 1700 and command of the ship was returned to the skipper. That was the day we almost ran out of water and salt water was being used for practically everything. Even fresh water for drinking purposes was low and water hours had to be established. One snipe was heard to remark that 'gthey shore want us somewhere in a hell of a hurry" not realizing at the time that he had hit the nail right on the head. We pulled into Furla Futi in the Ellice Islands at 1500 the next day where we re- fueled, discharged some passengers and settled down for the night. Next morning we were off again for Espiritu Santo in the New Hebrides. On the fifteenth all hands rushed topside to see their first waterspout and on the sixteenth we en- tered Segond Channel, Espiritu, where the President Garfield had been sunk by an Allied mine. Moored to the fueling dock, all hands were able to take a good look at jungle similar to that which they were to help win in the months to come. The air had an orchid perfume to it, and here and there we could see gorgeous red blos- soms dotting the jungle landscape. Even the water was sparkling clear and fish HMILK RUNH T0 GLOUCESTER could be seen swimming lazily beneath the ship's hull. However, we cou.ldn't remain here for long and were underway immediately upon the completion of fueling for Milne Bay, New Guinea. On 18 December we passed through the China Straits, enjoying a fine View of the coconut palms and jungle on either side, and entered Milne Bay where we reported for duty with the Seventh Fleet. After a short stay here which included four days alongside the U.S.S. Dobbin for repairs, we left on December 24 as part of Task Force 74 for the landing at Cape Gloucester, New Britain. The twenty-fifth was a beautiful day and all hands enjo ed a Y magnlficent Christmas feast w1th1n easy fighter range of the Japanese air strips at Madang Rabaul, and Cape Gloucester. , We acted as anti-submarine patrol during the landings next morning. ln the after- noon just after we began to retire with our cruisers a large force of Japanese aircraft came in for an attack. Nearly all the enemy planes were destroyed in the engagement but the first ship of our squadron was lost when the Brownson was sunk and several other ships were slight- ly damaged. Next day we returned to Buna Roads to pick up an echelon of LST's to return to Cape Gloucester, thus beginning our period of 'Gmilk runs" between these two spots each one hav- ing the serious navigational hazards of Ham Reef, Mitre Rock, and Margaret, Eleanor and Eve Shoals. On ur t th ' ' h M ll o en mission t e u any and Ammen were sent to conduct a bombardment of Gali, New Guinea, on the night of January 17, 1944. The next morning we met the convoy of assault troops headed for Saldor, New Guinea, where the landing was made on the nine- teenth without opposition. BOMBARDMENT On 26 January we bombarded Madang together with the Phoenix and Bush while the Boise and Mullany were shelling Alex- ishafen. This was a very dark night and there was considerable danger of the ships firing on each other. On 30 January while patrolling off Cape Gloucester with the Bush and Mullany, we were attacked by a single-engined Jap fighter which dropped a bomb in the center of the formation causing no damage and making good his , ,,,,, ,,,.,..,,,..,,.-,. ,,,, --f-..,..-,. ..-- 7-w----- f escape. After one more escorting job we j 1, received orders to proceed to Sydney, Aus- tralia for 'ten days of rest and recreation. February fifth we picked up 39 passengers at Millie Bay and headed for 46down-un- derw. Un the sixth, dimmed running lights were permitted for the first time since the Ammen started her tours. Wi, arrived in Sydney February eighth and moored alongside the Wooloomooloo BMIY NAVY DE PT f .iff f , I TARGET 10 dock. It was summer in Australia and everyone had a wonderful time with plenty of liberty, girls, fresh fruit, milk and ice cream, everything, in fact, that had been lacking for the past six months. On 19 February our stay was completed and we again shoved off for New Guinea. On the twenty-fifth we exercised with the submarine Scamp in the area south of the Louisade Archipelago. We left on the twenty-seventh with the Warramunga, Mul- lany and Hamilton as escorts for the Fifth Cavalry to reinforce and supply the pre- liminary landing party on Los Negros ls- land in the Admiralty group. We conducted many shore bombardments here and on 3 March while attempting to knock out shore batteries on Hauwei Island at the entrance to Seaddler Harbor we encount- ered severe return fire from at least three guns which completely straddled the ship. Only expert maneuvering of the ship saved us and we came out unscathed. That same evening we were again called on to bombard the beach but were interrupted by approaching enemy planes. One made a run on us dropping a stick of four bombs close off the starboard bow which gave the ship quite a shaking but caused no damage. March 5 we returned to Buna an-d the next day went alongside the Dobbin for repairs. Upon completion we returned to Milne Bay and conducted night battle practice. We left on the fifteenth with the Daly, Hutchins, Mullany and Beale for the bombard- ment of Wewak, New Guinea arriving the night of the eighteenth and retreating at thirty-two knots upon completion of the mission. From Buna we went to Milne Bay where we stayed for a week holding tactical exercises with Task Forces 74 and 75. 1 April we sailed to Buna to exchange our torpedoes and received a new camouflaged paint job at the same time. Then back to Milne Bay for practice, shooting down towed sleeves. Now we went back to the Admiralties and from there sailed on to assist in the landings at Tanamerah Bay, New Guinea. We caused numerous explosions in our target areas and then were ordered to investigate oil barges, troop movements, and storage areas in Demita Bay a few miles to the west. Here we left five large oil barges in flames, then chased after two light tankers which were reported to us by a spotter plane. One of these tankers was sunk while the other burst into flames and exploded, disintegrating before our eyes. On our re- turn to Tanamerah we were sent to Moeris Bay where we accounted for another con- centration of escape barges. For the next week we served as part of the screening force for the escort carriers Manila Bay, Natoma Bay, Corregidor and Coral Sea, patrolling the approaches to Hollandia and Aitape. We returned to the Admiralties group on the twenty-seventh and were out again the next day assisting the Mullany, Wilkes and Welles in escort duty to and from Hollandia. Un ll May Lieutenant Commander James H. Brown came aboard to skipper us for the next months. TASK GROUP 75 Our next operation was to be the capture of Wakde Island. Enroute we rammed a floating log which clung to the bow necessitating our stopping and backing down to remove it. The landing took place on 17 May and we commenced our bombardment. Japanese landing barges were everywhere but we were ordered to remain on our assigned target which was soon identified as an ammunition and oil dump by the heavy explosions and intense smoke rising from it. We were busy shooting up landing barges at nearby Vandoemoer Island when the cruiser planes called upon us toesilence some of the shore guns which' were sending up heavy ack-ack at them. This completed, we rejoined our formation' and patrolled the Wad.ke-Hol- landia area until 21 May when we steamed into Humbolt Bay for fuel and provisions. Enemy planes kept us awake until midnight but no damage resulted. 25 May we shoved off, this time for Biak in the Schouten group. On the twenty-sixth we bombarded the beach prior to the landings which took place at 0800. Several air raids developed the first day causing slight damage to our forces although we received a slight scare when a B-25 dropped a stick of bombs about five hundred yards from us in the excitement. That evening we returned to Hollandia. On the third of April we left for Biak and were attacked the next day by several Bettys which caused damage to the Nashville and the Phoenix. That night while making passage south between Biak and Mios Woendi we were attacked by Japanese torpedo bombers, one of which dropped a fish that practically' scraped our side as it went by and later exploded astern of us. Whether it was the blackness of night or the poor aim of the Japs, our luck was with us and the Ammen was destined to proceed on and eventually fight the ,laps in their home waters.

The destroyers turned and ran and -r'-" we gave chase but could not close them sufficiently. One hit was credited to the ----- lead ship. The night of 18 June we helped the Abner Read and Bache knock out enemy installations at Wewak and the next night escorted the HMS Ariadne as she mined the area against enemy submarines who were reported to be bringing in sup- plies and taking out important Japanese LANDING CRAFT AT WAKDE personnel' During the occupation of Noemfoer Island opposition was anticipated from the Jap airforce based at Manowari but none developed and the operation went on unopposed. Upon completion of this operation we returned to the Admiralties for a few days then were sent to Aitape to assist the PT boats in their destruction of ,lap barges and troop movements in the Wcwak-Madang area. This was one of our most unusual assignments as we sat on the foc's,l evenings and watched a movie while being on five minutes notice to furnish fire support to our troops who' could be heard fighting on the beach. We were present for the Allied land- ings on Cape Sansapoer, Dutch New Guinea, and this one went off so smoothly that we were released at 0900 in the morning to return to Mios Woendi, where we received orders to proceed once again to Sydney, Australia, for rest and recreation. It had been six months since our last visit to this fair city with no liberty in the meantime so it certainly looked good to every- one upon our arrival August 8. We went back to the shooting war on the twenty-sixth con- ducting tactical exercises at Milne Bay and in the' Admiralties. We were in on the bombard- ment of Morotai in the Halmahera group on 15 September. This landing also went off very smoothly as the twenty-five thousand ,laps of nearby Halmahera were successfully by-passed and isolated so we returned to Mios Woendi to prepare for the next step on the Road to Tokyo. We sat at Woendi for over a week without mail, finally returning to Manus only to find that all our mail had been sent to Woendi the day before and that somewhere enroute had passed us by. We were granted four days availability at the repair base on Lumbrum Point. Never before had we seensuch a fleet of battleships, cruisers, destroyers and all types of support ships as now filled our own Seaddler Harbor. Scuttlebutt was running at fever pitch as to what was in the wind, a state of nervous excitment gripped the fleet. We didn't have long to wait for action. With the Phoenix, Abner Read and Killen we shoved off for Humboldt Bay, Hol- landia where we fueled and provisioned in another atmosphere of tension. MOROTAI CAPE GILI.

Wasatch CAGC 91 with Vice Admiral Kinkaid, who was to be the O.T.C. of this operation, and proceed to join the Southern Attack Force for the landings at Leyte in the Philippine Islands. During this trip ourmorale received quite a jolt when '6Tokyo Rose" reported that Admiral Halsey and his great Third Fleet had been destroyed off Formosa. We did not want to believe this seemingly ridiculous story, yet not a word was heard from' Halsey's radio silenced fleet and from our own secret sources we knew that the cruisers Houston and Boston were limping back to the Ulithi Atoll. j For two days we waited for word from Halsey. On the afternoon of the seventeenth the Ammen was ordered to proceed twenty-five miles north of the formation to break radio silence and transmit two secret messages. While steaming back to the formation we intercepted a storm battered destroyer escort, the U.S.S. Eversole, who explained that heavy storms had delayed carrier action off Leyte and that 'more carriers were being dispatched for similar missions. On October 18 the U.S.S. Nashville containing General Douglas MacArthur joined up with our force' thus assuring us that whatever the situation to the north, the landing was going through as scheduled. Then, as if to confirm this feeling, Halsey broke radio silence with, uOur sunken units have been salvaged and are now retiringat high speed toward the enemy". An amplifying report told of the destruction dealt the enemy by our Third Fleet in the Formosa area. A After the landings on Leyte began, things were quiet except for the shore bombardments until late afternoon when a lone J ap plane sneaked in, dropped a fish into the U.S.S. Hono- lulu and made good his escape. This immediately caused everyone to be doubly alert although the next few days were amazingly quiet with only a few alarms but no raids. The J ap fair force came out on the twenty-third and twenty-fourth concentrating mainly on the shore activities and though We found it necessary to open fire on a few occasions, none really bothered us. The night of October twenty-fourth brought the greatest naval battle of the war. VV e were protecting the Wasatch about twenty-five miles from the Surigao Straits battle listening as our destroyers made their deadly torpedo runs and the ,laps came closer and closer from both the south and the north. lf they were not turned back, only the Mullany and Ammen would be left between the .lap Navy and our transports and troops on the beach. The enemy was turned back, however, and the Japanese fleet was irrepairably crippled. WITH USS MULLANY, MOROTAI All was not over though as the enemy air force appeared the first thing in the - morning. The first attack was repulsed but they returned a short time later while we were attempting to fuel from the Wasatch. We were forced to cut the lines and throw off the hoses on the double to prepare for the attack. Seven Vals came in this time and one, although shot down, managed to release his bomb resulting in a near miss injuring Woodward and Kaufman but they returned to their stations a few hours later. On 29 October our spirits were low as we watched. DesRon 24, less the Ammen .,.. ,ei and two ships which had only recently left I li I I the States, leave the formation to com- , mence the long trip back to Mare Island A ,V Navy Yard for overhaul. MEDIUM JAP TANKER GOES UP, DENITA BAY 'l'hings went well until NOVl'IlllN'l' first, when, while steaming in company with three battlcships, four cruisers and a dozen destroyers, we were subjected to a coordinated air attack hy the Nips. Here they first showed a change of' policy, for, instead of making for the heavy units, they concentrated on the destroyers. We were firing to port, then to starboard and finally on both sides simultaneously. XVI? saw the Abner Read get hit and go up in smoke. Suddenly a Frances which had ABNER READ CURB DOWN just dropped a bomb resulting in a near miss and considerable underwater damage to the Killen on our port bow, turned and headed right for us. All possible fire was concentrated on him, and although our shells poured into him, he crashed into us, his left wing catching the corner of the flying bridge and each engine taking a stack with it as the plane spun be- tween them. Credit enough cannot be given to those who stood by their stations without flinching, pouring out a steady stream of fire in an heroic attempt to stop this suicidal plunge. Particularly will we remember Cirsham Dowell, SoM2c, Paul Drake. BNf2c. Charles Hehner. SKIC, George Knapcik, QM3c, and Nelson Kossin, Slc, who gave their lives valiantly and with- out faltering, firing their guns into the ,lap plane until the last moment when men and ship were enveloped. The planeis gas tanks exploded in a sheet of flame and caused injuries to Abla, Demory, Holden, Murdock, Shepard. Spagnola, Kaufman. Adje. Dupree. l,outhan. Pena, Slaughter, Woodwzlrfl, Arebalo, Gerourd, Malone. Scalf. R. ll. Smith. Yancey. Bullion and Lieutenants Hundley, Usher and Ensign Tangney. The same afternoon, just after emergency repairs to the after stack had been com- pleted, the Japs came over again and were again repulsed. but the total score for the day showed one destroyer sunk, the Abner Read, and four damaged sufficiently to be taken out of action for several months. We were badly needed in the area and since we could still steam. although at reduced speed, we had to remain until l6 November when we left for Nlanus. This trip was a difficult experience for the after fireroom gang as the stacks were not sufliciently high to carry the fumes clear of the ship and instead they were fed to the ventilators and piped into the engine room spaces. NO. 1 STACK BOGEY WAS HERE Q. ltr i 14, an at , After temporary repairs, at Manus, the Ammen loft for Uncle Sugar, stopping at Nlajuro and Pearl on the way, finally steaming under the Golden Gate bridge on 21 December in time to spend Christmas in the States. All hands received eighteen days leave in Frisco but almost before we knew it our overhaul at Mare Island was completed and we were back at sea to continue our fight to Tokyo. On the morning of the eighth, together with the escort carrier, Chenango, we said goodbye to the U.S.A. and passed under the Golden Gate bridge wondering when and if we would ever see it again. Seven days later we arrived at Pearl Harbor and GOLDEN GAT E spent two weeks training before moving on. .S. Franklin. We picked up two o crashed on the flight deck g a small fire.

March 3rd we weighed anchor again, this time with the St. Louis and the Beale, and proceeded toward Ulithi to join a carrier force for the next operation. Seven days later we pulled into liniwctok on our last few ounces of fuel and took a nice big drink before moving ' ' ' F b ttleshi s on. At lilithi we ran into the greatest collection of shlps we had ever seen. rom a p to rowboats. nothing was missing. However, another change had taken place in the plans, and the Ammen and Beale plus a nf-t tender and LCS were directed to go to Leyte to join the amphibious force.

Early the first' morning a 'folly came streaking along and was splashed hy our AA fire. The following morning we were fli- rected to help screen some sixteen trans- ports which were retiring from Ukinawa ports. lt was quite a rest after three days al General Quarters. We patrolled back and forth about seventy-five miles south of Okinawa for about a week and a half, then took them to Saipan, arriving April 12th. We stayed here for a restful four days, after which the Van Valkenberg, Gainard, USS VAN VALKENBURG and Ammen were ordered back to Ukinawa. Upon arrival we were immediately sent out on radar picket station. Everything was quiet for about three hours, then at 2100 one plane came in and dropped a bomb which hit about fifty feet oft' the fantail, showering us with shrapnel which injured eight men and put several holes in the ship. These holes were speedily patched by the repair party, and the next morning we were relieved and came back in to Hagushi Beach and were sent to Karama Retto for four days tender availability for repairs. This was our introduction to radar picket duty. Upon completion of our repairs we were sent to another station directly north of Oki- nawa where we stayed four days. The second night five "bogeys" came in and gave us probably our closest scrapes of all. They were coming close. definitely intending to attack and we were throwing up everything we had at them while maneuvering the ship for all she was worth. The first began his 'fdivine wind" dive, missed the stacks by about 10 feet. and crashed into the sea about 150 feet off our port beam. lmmediately after that another one attempted to suicide our starboard bow, narrowly missing and splashing about 200 feet off the port side. A third came right in from ahead, just missing. and crashed into the water about 75 feet off our port quarter. The fourth dropped a bomb at the destroyer astcrn of us which missed them, then turned and tried to suicide but missed that also. The last one went out about five miles to orbit and was polished off by one of our night fighters. CHRISTIAN CHURCH.

NLM Up until now we had been fire sup- port ship on station, but now we were chosen to receive a lighter director team so were assured of a nice long stay on picket duty. W'e had many exciting nights on sta- tion, in fact there were few that were not. The usual schedule was four days out, then four days back at Hagushi Beach or Karama Retto, where we always hoped to get a little rest but the ,laps used to DAMAGED TEMPLE make us get up at least once or twice each night. Few of us will forget the night on station when we were under almost continuous attack until about three in the morning. We had fired nearly all our ammo so that we had to be relieved by the Drexler about 0430. Upon our arrival at Hagushi an hour and a half later we got the word that the Drexler had just been hit and sank in ninety seconds. Then there was the time we had to remain in port one extra day for repairs, and the ship which took our place was sunk that night. Call it luck, call it fate, but thank God. Un 17 June 1945 Lt. Commander George V. Rogers relieved Commander Brown to become skipper for the remainder of our cruise. Un June twenty-second we were sent out for what was to be our last assignment on picket duty. The first twenty-four hours were relatively unexciting, and the next morning we heard that all enemy resistance on Okinawa had officially ceased. At 0900 a large 'Gbogeyw formation was picked up at ninety miles and ten minutes later when they had closed to forty-five miles, we went to alert. We sent out our CAP to intercept them, and they called back that they needed help, so we requested more aircraft from Okinawa. They responded punctually to this call, and soon we had twelve more friendlies around. A dog fight was now raging, and as the sky was quite overcast, our Hrst sight of enemy planes was when seven dropped out of the clouds, one after the other and splashed into the sea-all victims of our Marine pilots and their Corsairs. We picked up one pilot after he stopped one enemy plane by setting his plane right down on top of OKINAWAN HOME the ,lap and then hailing out. All enemy up planes were accounted for this day by our pilots and our only really close call came when one of our own planes came plung- ing through the clouds out of control, and crashed into the water near our fantail. The pilot could have bailed out and saved himself hut, if he had his plane would have crashed into us. We will never forget the sacrifice of this unknown Marine pilot. All told the Annnen was on fourteen picket stations, shot down thirteen enemy air- craft, and accounted for thirty-six ,lap planes shot down by intcrceptors under our direction. The Navy Unit Citation has hcen awarded the Alllllllfll for her work at Okinawa. O ,lune 27 we left Okinawa with seven other destroyers for l.eyte for a short rest period. We stayed there until the middle of july while speculation as to our next move was running wild. We proceeded to Buckner Bay, Ukinawa, with only a short delay while we maneuvered around one of the frequent typhoons. After a short stop here we left in company with lJesRon 24, the Alaska, Guam, Montpelier, and Cleveland for a sweep into the China Sea. We moved up to a few miles north JAP STRONG POINT, OKINAWA of Foo Chow, hut the trip was uneventful. On the next sweep we went up north of Shanghai, and had a few tangles with the Emperoris air force, however all units encountered were destroyed by our aircraft. The last sweep was the longest of all and still uneventful, so we returned to Buckner Bay August 12th and went alongside the U.S.S. Hamul for repairs. It was here that the first announcement of the peace offer came through, and none of us will ever forget that night. There were twenty minutes of the wildest excitenlent one could imagine on Okinawa, then everyone settled down to await final developments. The final acceptance was somewhat of an anti-climax, but the realization that peace was finally here was the answer to all our prayers ?" and hopes of the last three years. The only relnaining question was 'gwhcn do we go home We were not chosen to be in Tokyo for the signing of the surrender documents but re- mained in Buckner Bay until September 7th, spending our time in tactical maneuvers outside the harbor and in exploring the beach. On the morning of the seventh we set out with three escort carriers and eight destroyers to provide air support for our minesweepers in the ,lap- anese Sea in the event of any trouble. After nine days of patrolling, we were ordered to Xag- asaki for the occupation and to assist in the release of American prisoners of war. RIDDLED MONUMENT TYI'lC.-XI, CXMP SITE.

Bridge, a "refer" ship, struck a mine and we left Sascbo at 30 knots with handy-billies, floater nets and gasoline for the pumps. lt was a treacherous trip through narrow channels in the minefields and all hands were topside to watch. Yislullr of special food as a reward for our efforts went up in smoke when we were denied permission to enter Fusan harbor with the Bridge but had to return in the dead of night and retrace our steps through the mines to Sasebo. Our next courier run started as usual but on a rainy afternoon while laying in to Kagoshima word came that DesRon 24 was to return home. The grapevine and senttlehutt worked overtime with the stories of the homeward trip and stateside liberty. Unr last mail trip was a momentous one not only for us, but for the :nail-hungry fleet in Sasebo. This was the trip when we carried M2159 repeat two one five nine" sacks of mail.

AT TWO BLOCK NAGATO QBBJ AT YOKOSUKA Finally on the morning of 17 November 1945 we all heard the one long blast that was music for our soulsg the old man ordered the 'LWhat the Hell Pennant" to be two blocked. Now we are really underway! Midway, Pearl, San Diego, Panama, and Charleston. 'aLet9s hope Charleston isn't 'adryu-l wonder what a real American girl looks like-boy, won't Mom be glad to see me?', The first two days out were beautiful and everyone was in high spirits. Then, over- night we ran into a typhoon and weather like that made even the Chiefs seek refuge at the centerline. Thanksgiving dinner was served during the heavy weather but 502 of us felt little desire to eat while our old lady of the seas remembered her shake down cruise when days like these were a relief from the constant pounding in the Aleutians. The days wore on. At last the weather let up and in a few hours Midway loomed on the horizon. Wllat a laugh it was to watch the Cooney birds land in the water or strut on the beach. We took on stores and in an effort to touch dry land again there were a few volunteers for the work- ing party. Work was completed in 8 hours and we shoved oil' for Pearl the same day. November 28 rolled around and found all hands at quarters for the entry into Pearl Harbor. The main thought in everyone's mind was just one more good liberty before head- ing home. Liberty in Pearl meant lettuce and tomato sandwiches, fresh milk, cokes made with carbonated water and a preview of DECK FORCE AT QUARTERS. PEARL HARBOR good statesidc liquor. But leaving Pearl this time would not mean that empty feel- ing inside-as-we were going home and it eouldn't eome too soon. At quarters again on 6 December and all hands strained to get that first look at the states in almost a year. San Diego--Q with real iee cream sodas and girls whose eyes do not slant outward and upward but whose sweaters do. A three-year dream come true! Uncle Sugar at peaee with the world.

It really got warm on our southward trip and all hands spent at least one day laying in the sun. Une day out of Panama Ueslion 24 made a full power run, the outcome proving that the U.S.S. Ammen was the fastest ship in the squadron. We THE SCOREBOARD put in some 400 turns and made 35.2 knots good with the seas and wind against us. One more feather in the cap of our grand lady of the sea. 18 December was holiday routine for all hands except the engineers as every vantage point topside was occupied to watch our progress through the Panama Canal. It took all day but we didn't care. It was fun to sit back and watch someone else do the work for a change. On the Atlantic side we put in at Coco Solo forthe night to take on fuel. exchange movies and buy out the Ship's Service of silver pins and silk stockings. Early on the morning of the 19th we shoved off for our last cruise: the one which would take us to our new home, Charleston, S. C. That day on the Caribbean was rough and we thought it was only the prelude of things to come on the Atlantic. However the Atlantic put on her smoothest dress for 3 days and we had a pleasant trip north. Once out of the gulf stream, foul weather jackets were broken out to keep out the bitter cold wind. It was the chilly Sunday morning of 23 December that we passed the Charleston buoy and DesRon 24- slipped quietly into the harbor and anchored in the Ashley River. The first leave party shoved off immediately looking forward to 30 days at home, many men to be home for Christmas. It wasn't long until we moved into the Navy Yard and really began to work. All guns and engines 3 had to be cleaned and preserved, rust had to he chipped and paint sprayed. radio and +L radar sets checked and preserved and spare parts requisitioned. We will never forget those long days without steam and , ever changing procedures for doing work. but as always. the Navy got the job done. Now all that remained were the final in- spections and the trip to the tin can grave- vard in the Wando River. a welcome rest for a fighting ship after 3 years and 35 davs of service. lt was a quiet ceremony on' I3 April I0 lo when the commission peu- nanl of the USS. AMMI-IN 1DD527b was hauled down from the main truck. thus ending a long and heroic cruise. bg. 1' "' "Q ef ,I ' ff L.l1i3'A lufh- 'L ,df 4' ,pf g'.d x-M'-Q A L x 1' ".: . ' .q Z 4.4 :N 5 Q W?
