Whip n IS USS A rl ington (A GMR - 2) Major Communication Relay Pacific 1968 Where the Action Is Joseph Conrad, master mariner and literary luminary, in the ttvilifiht of his days, reminded those who follow the sea, of a truth that he had observed in a tvorld of change: And now the old ships and their men are gone; the new ships anil the neir men, many of them hearing the old auspicious names, have taken up their watch on the stern and im- partial sea, which offers no op- portunities but to those who know how to grasp them with a reatly hand and an undaunted heart. " Appropriately, it is of men, of a ship, of memories and of old auspicious names that cruise lutoks are made. Lest new ships and neic men and the passage of the years completely dim our memo- ries of Arlingtitn and l )(tH, we proudly present this cruise bitok- to shore ourselves against forget- fulness of the year we were among those who go to sea in ships. Though each iTuise anil each cruise book may seem much like another, the major change is the faces. Thus ice hope that " If ' here the Action Is " will serve prima- {Continued on back flap) 1 Where the Action Is USS Arlington (AGMR-2) Major Communication Relay Pacific 1968 ' A I 9« Arlington ' s Heritage H But let us not forget old auspicious names. In the Ship s Library is a handsome volume, Eleanor Lee Templeman ' s Arlington Heritage, with the following inscription : " Presented to the USS Arlington from the people of Arlington County, Virginia ...on the occasion of her commissioning August 27, 1966. " Ostensibly, Arlington ' s name commemorates Arlington County, Virginia, one of the Navy ' ' s first sites for a wireless reulio station — a fitting designation for a sophisticated major communication relay ship. But there is another curious analogy, and this is to be found in another spirit of communica- tion that characterizes Arlington County today. Arlington County is best known because of the location there of two national shrines — Arlington House, the home of Robert E. Lee from which he departed to command the Confederate troops and to which he never returned; and the Arlington National Cemetery, the ground of Arlington House, the burial place of our nation ' s heroic dead since 1864. Significantly, spanning the Potomac River to the National Cemetery is Arlington Memorial Bridge, built on the axis connect ing the national memorials to Abraham Lincoln and to Robert E. Lee, Following the War Between the States, Lee had lived in the spirit of the tcords from Lincoln ' s second inaugural address : " With malice toward none, with charity for all... let us strive on... to do all which may achieve a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations. " In similar terms General Lee had written the Governor of Virginia : " All should unite in honest efforts to obliterate the effects of war and to restore the blessings of peace. " It is fitting that the national memorials maintained in their honor be joined by Arlington Memorial Bridge across the River which once divided the Nation. The bridge symbol- izes the present bond between the North and the South — their peaceful communication and interchange. We of Arlington can only hope that out of this symbolic historical precedent can e- merge the successful fulfillment of a two-fold communications goal. First, and for the present, we continue to serve as communica- tions handyman and relay station for Seventh Fleet operations in Vietnam. And second, we sincerely desire that communication may reap communication. Thus, we who sail in Arlington and who are proud to share the chores of her mission unite " with ready hand and un- daunted heart " to obliterate the effects ' jaf tear and to restore the blessings of peace.

The coinniaiicliM ' ol a fleet often had trouble trying to figure out not oiiK what the t ' uenn was up to, but also where his own ships weri ' and what thi ' were doing. In the .American Na one of the earliest records of a signal svstem was a set of simple manenxcr and recogni- tion signs issued in 1778. An impro ed s stem was worked out b f ' aptain Thomas Tru. tun in 1779. This was l)ased on 10 numeral flags from to 9. Orders were relayed b numbers and combinations of numbers haying meanings that could be looked up in a decode book. Si ' inaphorc came into the N ' ay ' in 1S71, with a sssteni ot hand scmaphoric signals somewhat similai ' to the present ones, but with a limited nmnber of characters. In I Sfi4 two forerunners of the present day flashing light system made their appe arance. Under one s stem a lantern, ball, or similar object was e.vposed, or a flag was lowered and raised, in dit-dah patterns. In fog or mist, the same code could be used tor a trvmipet blown in long or short blasts. Under the other SNStem a canvas c lindi ' r, with a lantern insidi ' , was secured to the rigging in a manner permitting the light to be ex|)ose(l or screened b pulling or releasing a line attached to the cylinder. Electricit came into Naval Communications in 187.5, when experiments with electric lights were conducted. In . ' 3 ears the range of these lights increased from 6 miles to a distance of nearK 17 miles. It was not until the " wireless " came along about 1X9.5, howi ' er, that Na al Comnuuiications tould begin to approach the rapidity and long range it has toda . B 190.3 radio was operational cfpiiiiment throiighout the United States Fleet. Since then there ba c been so many improvements in radio that it now is just as easy to send a mes- sage to fleets all o er the world as it once was to pass the word to a single ship onl ' a shout ' s range awa . , ' ■■4 ' -iU : ' !1! ? ' Command I Command at sea, tcith all it responsibilities and all its opportunities, is the goal of every line officer in the United States Navy aspiring to professional distinction. In time of peace, some officers tcait and prepare for many years before command comes ; in time of tear, some find them- selves thrust into command almost before they feel equal to its burdens. To all, the experience of command is unforgettable — an important chapter in their lives, shared with the past and and future generations of ship commanders in the unbroken continuity of the naval service. Command ■ " Arlington Arriving ! " We are all familiar with the booming voice over the IMC informing the entire ship that the Commanding Officer is on hoard. This small phrase gives a hint of a concept which is uni(jue to the Navv — the concept that the Captain of a ship is not a separate entit ' hut becomes the ship itself. The personalitv of the Commanding Officer subtly shapes the attitudes and morale of the crew, and his decisions affect the material condition of the ship until the ship and crew become exten- sions of himself.

The interdependence of each and the co-operation of each is essential for the successful carrying out of Arlington ' s mission. Each of Arlington ' s nine departments is divided into one or more divisions, administrative and operational units delegated certain tasks and responsibilities, and ranging in size from as fete as four men to as many as ninety. Twenty-three divisions with thirty-one rates spread among them voork as a team to fulfill Arlington ' s responsibilities to the United States Navy. 22 Department Heads ■ The Head of Department is the representati e of the Commanding Officer in all matters pertaining to his de- partment. His responsibilities are myriad, and just a few of these include ; supervising and formulating a depart- ment training program ; maintaining established standards of performance and conduct within his department ; submitting budgetar requirements for the maintenance and operation of his depart||neHi(. A Head of Department reports to the Commanding Officer for operational readiness of his department and to the Executive Officer for all administrative matters. (Seated, frcim tliu left): LCDR H. A.

This floating Naval Communications Station exists for no other purpose, and the efforts of all other departments must serve only to complement the work of Communications, whose performance ultimately defines the success of Arlington ' s mission. Arlington ' s communicators not only serve as their own ship ' s " Voice of Command " but also as the " Voice of Command " for any other ship for which we pro -ide message relay sen ' ice. We currently possess the most modern and sophisticated e(iuipment available, and this capability, combined with an established reputation for technical " know how " and a " can do " spirit, has resulted in efficient and ac- curate communications. It is this winning combination that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration called upon to assist in the Apollo-8 moon shot and recovery operations. 31 Communication Office Co in III unicdtion Office r f:()mmancler F.B.

Dental Department ■ Tliree Dental Technicians, their offi cer, and two operatories form the basis of Arlington ' s Dental Department. Except for the most advanced dental procedures, Arlington ' s dentists provide complete oral care. In addition to dental surgery for the crew of Arlington, a program of preventatixe dentistry is conducted in the form of regular dental check-ups and a fluoridation program. On a yearly basis, the Arlington Dental Department performs in excess of 12,000 separate procedures. HM " i- 77i .s Is a Drill Hoic Many False Teeth? I r. W. W. Mc Laclilan, DC ; |. W. Creene, DT3.

Navigation Department ■ Determining and plotting Arlington ' s position o er many thousands of nautical miles per year is the reason for being of the Navigation Department. The sextant, loran, alidade, and dead reckoning are all used to determine position, but all these are useless without the constant ' igilance of both the Navigator and the quartermasters. Although the department is one of Arlington ' s smallest, its responsibilities are great. Besides plotting courses and keeping check on the weather, the Navigators also assume the administrative tasks of processing and maintaining navigation charts, publications, and equipment, winding and comparing the ship ' s chronometers, supervising the maintenance of . i-lington ' s Deck Log, and manning a continuous watch in the chart house with an up-to-date ship ' s " posit " . The Navigators utilize the power supplied bv the engineers to guide Arlington to any operating area it is required to go. 83 (Knfflini;, Inim iIh ' left): G. W. Kloucrs, OMSX ; W.T.Keith, SN ; D. L.

The deck divisions maintain many of the traditional ways of the sea. Bridge watches, underwa replenish- ments, Arlington ' s boats, manning the lines, and anchors during the special sea and anchor detail, maintenance of the hull, maintenance and operation of the helicopter landing platform and the Sail and Boatswain ' s Lockers are but a few of the major functions of the Boatswain ' s Mates. The weapons side of the Deck Department rims the gamut of tasks concerning ordnance. The employment and maintenance of Arlington ' s 3 " ' 50 guns and other armament and ordnance equipment, procurement, handling, stowage, and issue of ammunition and pyrotechnics constitute the largest part of their job. Deck Department serves a variety of functions throughout the ship, but their seamanship and knowledge of ordnance pro idc the means to make our Nav) ' the greatest in the world. 89 First Division ■ The Boatswain ' s Mates are tlu- acknowledged senior rate ol the Na . Tiathtionally the Boatswain ' s Mates have been the ultimate seagoing rate-, and in them reside the traditional ways of the seafarer. First Division is responsible for nuieli of the forward pait of the ship and the forecastle (the forw aid relueling staticn at sea), which houses the anchors, anchor chains, capstans, and other ground tackle. First Division runs and maintains the Captain ' s Gig and Number One Utility Beat. They are also in charge of the Sail Locker and handle forward lines and anchors during sea and anchor details.

Shipboard Life and Events I From the ordinary to the extraordinary ; from the day to day to the once in a lifetime — »uch a spectrum informs the events that have made 1968 aboard Arlington a year to remember. The humdrum and the workaday inevitably fill most of our days at sea, and we welcome our off-hours to break the monotony of routine jobs and duties. But the days on Patrol are sometim.es broken with the physical strain and excitement of Underway and Vertical Replenishments and there is also the daily helo, forever inspiring hope of letters from home in those mythical " 50 bags of mail. " Then, those once in a lifetime experiences do occur. Crossing the Equator brings the never-to-be forgotten pageant of the Pollywog becoming the Shellback. And, thanks to NASA, comes Arlington ' s participa- tion in the historic Ap ollo-8 mission and our rendering of honors to the world ' s first moon voyagers- Borman, Anders, and Lovell. ,W - ' % wmm 5F» ' ' 100 ' ' rm r Crossing the Equator ■ TO ALL SAILORS WHEREVER YE MAY RE: and to all Nk-nnaids, Whales, Sea ScipiMils, Porpoises, Sharks, Dolphins, Eels, Skates, Suckers, Crabs, Lobsters, and all other living things of the sea GREETINGS : KNOW YE: That on this 16th day of May 1968, in Latitude 00000 and Longitude 139° 45 ' E there appeared within our Royal Domain the USS Arlington (AC;MR-2) bound for the eipiator and for S dney, Australia.

After a year ' s tour of duty on Arlington, that young man who may have been tempted by the recruiting poster has had at least a sailor ' s eye view of Hawaii, the Philippines, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Australia. With hU camera and ail-American inclination to have a good time wherever he is, he has conquered. By his determination to see and to experience what i» beyond Main Street and the usual servicemen ' s haunts, he has been educated. His senses have been bombarded by new vistas, by sundry environ- ments, and by the unique mannerisms of many nationalities. We all form the composite of that young man led on by the vision of distant and expand- ing horizons. For most of us the horizons have just begun to expand, for the distinctive beauty and warm welcome of each country serves only to increase our desire to see and to experience much, much more. We vow that we shall come back again some day. To keep our memories alive in the meantime, we provide the following photographic account of the faces, landmarks, landscapes, moments that we dare not forget. Japan X ' . « » r rt fc 123 Progress and Dignity ■ Modern |apaii has been slia|X ' (l b man forces that ha e left it a mosaic of paradoxes, of past and present, East and West. From tlie sn() -ti]iped pinnacle of Mmint I ' nji on the main island of Honshu, Japan stretches like a rumpled green carpet to the sea. To the north, it emerges as the seniiaretic land of hears, forests, and snow. To the south, across the picturescjue, winding Inland Sea lie villages, seaports, and people almost untouched b time. And further south and east the cities and countryside present a curious blend of smoke-belching industries and wind-rippled fields of rice. Four islands dropped in a giant festoon off the coast of Asia ; four islands caught between two cultures, the Orient and the Occident, between the two great forces dividing the world today. Communism and Western democracy. In Japan, an entirely new culture is opened to us, to interest us as oi)ser ers and to delight us as participants. We have marveled at the capacity of this, one of the most prosperous nations in the world, to sustain its ingrained virtues of courtesy and dignitx . [apan has accepted change gracefully and yet has retained its national cliaracter. From the ports to the religious and cultural centers to the bustling metropolis of Tokyo to the scenic countrxside, Japan has impressed us with its distinct spirit — the grace of its architecture, the simplicity of its homes, the politeness of its people. 1 127 I ■ Ill finds ( Both Buddl mtk I Beyond the Cities ■ Though the Japanese seeks leisure and rest from crowded cities in his religious and cultural centers, the visitor to Japan finds quiet beauty also in the pastoral countryside, market places of small conununities, and in the scenic fishing villages. Both Kyoto and Kamakura are of great religious importance to the Japanese people. The Kainakura Daibutsu, or Great Buddha, has rested serenely for hundreds of years as a symbol of faith and power to his believers. The farms, illages, and market places of the countryside are considered more distinctively Japanese than the Tokyo Bay area. Night Life ■ Japan also knows how to entertain its guests after sunset. Few areas in the world can compare with the night life on Tok o ' s Ginza. A shopping mecca by day and a brilliantly lighted entertainment center by night, Tokyo reminds one of New York in the variety of its industries and stores. The port city Yokosuka also ac- commodates WESTPAC personnel in m riad restaurants, bars, and niiihtclubs.

BEER Diverse Society ■ rliis island nation in tropical Asia i rt ' cts its isitors with an ap]X ' aling hk ' nil ol Western and Oriental charaeter- istics. The customs of the people, religion, and place names all reflect the Spanish influence ol the first colonizers. The United States imparted to the Philippines a democratic form of government and w idespread use of the English language. Descendants of the original islanders, however, perpetuate their curious Tagalog language and the narrow rice terraces which wind around the steep mountainsides. To the southwest. Mohammedan Moros still sail then- double rigged vintas and sea " gxpsies " di e for pearls from the narrow boats in which they live. As in most tropical countries, the Philippines has an agrienltmal economy, and most of the population lives in small villages and nn-al areas. As with manv people the world o er who live close to the soil, the old ways are the best ways, and the water buffalo is preferable to a machine. Day to Day Life ■ The old ways may be revealed in the rural areas, but in the cities abound all the joys and woes of modern civilization. Gleaming, cosmopolitan Manila and the rowdy, bustling port of Olongapo at first appear to liave little in common ; but in both cities a " western way " prevails, mechanization runs rampant, and commerce is the watchword. In Olongapo we discovered that abstract art is old-hat to the Jeepney drivers and that we were push-o ers for the smiles of Filipinas of all ages. We discovered also that the water sports to be enjoyed in Subic Bay and at Grande Islande are second to none. MO A Contempory Miracle ■ Hong Kong reminded us of a kaleidoscope. There, no matter how often we turned or in what direction, our next view was completely different and cfjiiallv rewarding. Full of workday miracles, the greatest miracle is that Hong Kong exists at all. Terrifyingly close to Red China, this British Crown Colony has never had enough of the good things-land, water, health, security, or money- but always a surplus of the bad ones-wars, typhoons, epidemics, opium, heroin, crime and corruption. Yet it has outlived a thousand prophecies of its imminent doom. Hong Kong is one of the most contradictory and baffling places in the contemporary world-a magnificent port and a teeming slum ; a bargain hunters paradise and a nest of s indlcrs ; a place of marginal farmlands and superlative farmers, efficient and orderly, sly and corrupt. ' C •■■ t i Hong Kong ' ' s People ■ We slmll ;il a s rememher Hong Kong as the in- li ii ' uiin ' tit ' of lights — the haihorusre of quick-tailored suits, floating restaurants, laddered streets, boisterous shops, and Mar Son ' s garliage ser ice. But even more deepK ingrained is the ision of Hong Kong ' s people. Dwelling between the flaws of a tiger, they are fully aware of the spot they ' re on but apparently not at all dismaved. Thev are too busy selling, moving, finding the next meal. Tlu live everywhere — on the sides of hills, on rooftops, and even on the water. The hub- bub generated 1) ' these teeming millions is tremendous, and e er da resembles Grand Central Station during rush hour. 143 f Australia I I ■fc- ? • • • |i " " ' Q.53 • . • ' ■ • - -_ «L .

Girls Gifts T a I w a n " J ' JW 1 •50 Beautiful Island ■ Ilha Formosa, or " beautiful island, " Portuguese discoverers called Taiwan in 1517. Like a floating leaf, it lies 100 miles off the Communist mainland. Toda ' Taiwan is the stronghold refuge for Chiang Kai-shek, the Republic of China Government, and the artistic and cultural heritage of pre-C:ommunist China. The casual visitor to Taipan is likely to see little but the fine highway between C:hilvmg and Taipei or the modern port of Kaohsiung, and he is usually surprised that the roadside and port scenery is remarkably like that of the United States. But for the stout of heart exists the spectacular East Coast Highway which gashes cliffsides along the 240 miles of rugged mountains walling of the dramatic heights of the east coast from the fertile plain of the west. And where in the United States could one find good-luck flags flying on bamboo staffs beneath the national colors of new fishing boats or aboriginal fishermen setting out on bamboo rafts with dip nets poised on the bows? The maidens of Taiwan are also distinctively and exotically oriental, as are the frequent religious festivals, restaurant fare, and the swirling contours of terraced rice paddies of the northern and western sections. 151 Crossroads of the Pacific I Diamond Head is a green-tiered liackdrop for ]iite sands and atinamarine surf ; a gentle breeze props lazy palms ; the streets are a mo ing abstract ot Haslu aloha shirts and How ing minnnnns ; the girls on the beach arc bron cti and bcantitiil. These scenes frame our mcmoiii ' s of W ' aikiki and Hawaii. The id llic and legt ' ndarv Pohncsia that was Hawaii exists now niaiiiK in the night clubs and the decor of W ' aikiki hotels, but intrusion of Western culture has done little to undermine the eas ' pace and friendK ' , relaxed atmosphere that characterize the Hawaiian setting. Hawaii is no longer a small archipeligo supported by the Navv and the pineapple trade ; it is a Pacific crossroads ; the international tourist has found it out ; Hawaii is a full-fledged member of the Union, a diversified area which shouts its niodcrnit to the woild.
