Faircloth, PN2 ASSISTANT EDITOR Joe Nicola, SOS TYPIST Robert Koch, SN The destroyer USS ARNOLD J. ISBELL (DD-869) is the first ship of the United States Navy to bear this name. She is one of the destroyers conceived late in World War II, but born too late to participate in the Pacific fighting that ended in 1945. Destroyer 869, the ISBELL. was commissioned Jan- uary 5. 1946. She was built by Bethlehem Steel Com- pany at Staten Island, New York. After a shakedowr cruise out of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the 390 foot de stroyer joined the fleet, training with Submarine Forces, Atlantic, which operated out of New York. In 1947 the year-old tincan started for San Diego, which was assigned as her new home. It wasn ' t until May 1947 that the ISBELL ventured away from the shores of the I ' nited States. That month she made her first tour of the Orient and visited the ports of Tsingtao, Shanghai. Hong Kong. Chinwongto. Hulo Tao. Tokyo, Okinawa. Yokosuka. Guam and Pearl Harbor. On the ISBELL ' s second Far East trip she again visited ports in China but this time the trip was official business and the ISBELL got to know the meaning of war and her duties as she stood off Shanghai while Chinese Communists took over that city. Later ihc ship mi) efl into Tsingtao and evacuated the American Consul General and his famiK as the Communists captured that [xirt. The ISBELL is be- lieved to have been the lasl Atnerican man-of-war l(i visit Tsingtao. During this cruise of the Western Pacific, the ISBELL visited other ports w-ith such memorable names as Manila. Subic Ba . llnilo. Cuba. Jolo. Zanboanga. In- chon and Sasebo. SHIP ' S HISTORY At the beginning of the Korean ' ar. DD-869 was moored in Pearl Harbor as part of a Naval Reserve Midshipman Cruise. November 6. 1950. the ISBELL left the L ' nited States for her first taste of battle. During the Korean War she took part in British Commando raids, escorted troop transports bringing the 15th . rmy Division to the Japanese Island of Hokkaido and newly released Nationalist prisoners from Korea to Keelung, Formosa: and bombarded the East Coast of North Korea, hitting such targets as enemy troops, highways and railroads at Songjin. Chongjin. and Wonsan. She also acted as standby rescue and communications ship at Pusan. Korea, as that city was burned. During the sixth tour of WESTPAC the ISBELL as- sisted in the evacuation of the Tachen Islands. The successful rescue of a pilot from a downed Navy Patrol plane highlighted the seventh tour of the Far East. Visi till .ki« Ew Feti ftil tbel niari 11 of Co: m. mi I Visits to American Samoa. New Zealand and the Ad- Rertw % miralties provided most of the interest for the eighth tour which ended March 21. 1957. During the ISBELL ' s home tour from March 25 un- til October 25, 1957. she took part in a Fleet Reserve Association Memorial Day cruise, a Pacific Training Exercise, visited Portland. Oregon, for that city ' s Rose Festival, and Seattle. Washington, for their Sea Fair. While participating in the Pacific Training Exercise, the ISBELL operated with the Navy ' s first atomic sub- marine, NAUTILUS. When Commander E. R. Zumwalt. USN, was relieved of command of the ISBELL by Commander R. L. Porter, L SN. July 13. 1957. in San Diego. Rear Admiral Chester C. Wood, USN, COMCRUDESPAC, was on hand to pre- sent a plaque for Battle Efficiency to the officers and crew. In earning this award, the ISBELL had risen from lower depths of division competition to capture every available award possible for a destroyer to earn. She wore the large red engineering E on her after stack, the green anti-submarine E on the bridge, along with white E ' s for operations and over-all battle efficiency, and white E ' s on each of her five inch mounts and directors. Supply also earned their E for efficiency in 1957. and was awarded a plaque by CO.MCRUDESPAC later in the year. An 18-day nonstop voyage from San Diego to Bris- bane. Australia, initiated the ISBELL ' s ninth Far East Cruise. Manus Island, Guam. Subic Bay, Hong Kong, Koashiung. Buckner Bay. Yokosuka. Sasebo. Kobe. Mid- way and Pearl Harbor were other ports visited. The ISBELL returned to San Diego April 23. 1958. CDR. R. L. PORTER. USN — CDR. E. R. ZUMWALT, USN 1957- 1955-1957 CHANGE OF COMMAND 13 JULY 1%7 OFFICERS Commander Ralph L. PORTER. USN. Commanding Officer of the USS ARNOLD J. ISBELL (DD.869I. was born in Cochran, Georgia. He entered U. S. Naval Academy in June 1938 and was commissioned Decem- ber 19. 1941. Commander PORTER ' s first assignment was USS NEW MEXICO. While serving in the Gunnery De- partment of NEW MEXICO he participated in the fol- lowing operations during WORLD WAR II: Southwest Pacific (Mop-up I. Aleutians. Gilberts. M a r s h a 1 1 s, Marianas, bombardment of New Ireland. Philippines, and Okinawa. During the period of October 1945 to September 1948, having been promoted to Lieutenant Commander, he served as Assistant Engineer and Damage Control Officer aboard USS PHILIPPINE SEA. The PHILIP- PINE SEA participated in one Mediterranean cruise as a unit of the SIXTH FLEET and in " OPERATION HIGHJUMP. " Admiral Byrd ' s 1946-47 Antarctic Ex- pedition. A tour of shore duty came in 1948 when Commander PORTER received orders to the Military Requirements Section of the Navy Special Devices Center. Port Wash- ington, New York. While so assigned he participated in the Navy ' s first experiment in the use of television as a medium of rapid mass training in event of mobili- zation. Following this duty, in July 1951 he was ordered to the USS WALLER, a destroyer, as Executive Officer and Navigator. The WALLER participated in the Korean conflict. Commander PORTER took command of the Destroyer Escort USS MAURICE J. MANUEL in May 1952 and was its Commanding Officer for 22 months. His next assignment was Executive Officer of the NROTC Unit at the University of Missouri. Comman- der PORTER was later assigned as Commanding Of- ficer and Professor of Naval Science. Commander PORTER assumed command of the IS- BELL 13 July 1957. He is married to the former Miss Janet L. Weaver of Hollis, Long Island. New York. Thev now reside at 43 Sierra Way. Chula Vista.

USNR Division Officer GUNNERY DEPARTMENT As gunnersmates and gunnersmate strikers of the IS- BELL, First Division ' s duty and obligation is to be ready to operate effectively the ship ' s batteries should any emergency develop. To maintain this constant condition of readiness, daily maintenance projects must be carried out. Gun- nery exercises must be held frequently to insure that Gunner ' s Mates, as individuals, can properly perform their jobs and that each mount is netted together to form an effective fighting machine. Men of First Division are assigned to maintain and operate either the main 5 " .38 battery or secondary 40MM battery. Their talents and experience are varied enough, however, that they can interchange jobs when situations demand additional help on certain mounts. Real pride of the Gunner ' s Mates, however, is in their mounts. Excellent appearance and condition of mounts are but a small reflection of that pride. Fred W. Plunkett, CMC, USN Melvin A.

RUE, ENS., USNR Division Officer DECK FORCE Second, or Deck Division, is composed of a proud group of hard-working men who are sailors in the finest sense of the word. Aside from workaday chores of maintaining the decks and the exterior bulkheads in a spotless condition, these men fashion works of art from such homely material as canvas. line, paint and varnish. A boatswain mate is required to stand a greater variety of watches than any other rate. Whether he is a lookout, helmsman, lee helmsman, or bridge talker, a boatswain mate must become proficient in the operation and maintenance of all manner of small craft, possess a working knowledge of International Rules of the Road, and exhibit the finest sense of good seamanship and boat etiquette. Although recent years have brought newer develop- ments, the shrill call of the boatswain pipe serves as a daily reminder that the time-honored virtues of good seamanship and military snap have survived the test of time and are still the backbone of the Navy.

In doinp this, they operate and repair all fire control radar systems on board. Run checks and tests on the servo systems and computers, and maintain the electrical and electronic- equipment pertaining to the armament of the ship. Sonarmen aboard the ISBELL guard us against those raiders of the silent deep, the submarines. They operate and rejiair the latest types of anti-submarine equipment. It takes a well-trained ear and mind to op- erate sonar gear. If you happen to see a sonarman that acts a little funny, just overlook him, because he is what we call " ping happy. " Torpedomen have the combined job of guarding us against surface vessels as well as submarines. They operate and maintain the torpedo and depth charge launching svstems. KoIktI ,1. Siilankr.

It is the site of a government munitions plant, steel and textile mills, auto- mobile plants, railway workshops and shipyard. ISBELL ' s seven-day good will visit to Brisbane was the first stop on an 18-day nonstop voyage from San Diego. Blood donation Koala t ihr (,i k Coast Kancar IIMAS MflU.uiiif YOKOSUKA Yokosuka, main port of the Imperial Japanese Navy during the Second World War, served as ISBELl s home port in the Far East. The city is located about 40 miles southeast of Tokyo. Most men from the ISBELL found Yokosuka the main souvenir port. Ships ' Stores and small shops on the beach provided outstanding bargains in china, crystal, dolls, cigarette lighters and toys. Our last stop in Yokosuka in April, some of the men had a chance to travel to Kamakura to view the Great Buddha and to Tokyo to see the Imperial Palace grounds during Cherry Blossom season. SASEBO Saseljo is located on the southwestern part of the island of Kyushu. The climate is warmer than Yokosuka ' s. and the numerous islands in the bay provide a summer recreational playground during the summer that is unlike most resort areas. ISBEI.I, visited Sasebo twice. Our second stop- over was lor two weeks while we underwent voyage repairs. Ship ' s party was also held in Sasebo at the China Night. JTtdas ! Citv is e of lie riotllie Imperial OIL KOBE Kobe is one of the largest merchant seaports of Japan and the world. However, Japanese would probably consider this insignificant beside the fact that their modem city forms one of the three cities — Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe — triangles of the cultural center of Japan. Everything that was old Japan — torris, temples, castles — and new Japan — large de- partment stores, theaters, wide boulevards, could be found within this area. DESDIV 112 ' s five-day visit to Kobe was strictly for rest and recreation. I SUBIC BAY, PHILIPPINE ISLANDS Subic Bay, located on Luzon Island near the city of Olongapo, provided ISBELL with two weeks of repairs and gave all hands a chance to recuperate from the stormy weather of Operation Mantle Rock. The scorch- ing January heat caught several sailors by surprise, but perhaps not as many as did the 0500 reveille. When the afternoon rolled around, though, there was time off to drop down to the club for a cool glass of milk or the beach for a refreshing swim. FORMOSA KAOHSIUNG. (TAIWAN) FORMOSA Kaohsiung is on the west coast of Formosa or Taiwan. It is a major port of this island stronghold for the Chinese Nationalists who were forced from their mainland home by the Communists. ISBELL ' s visits into this port were for preparations and replenishment during our turn at the Formosa Patrol off the Red China mainland. Kaohsiung provided brief periods of rest for personnel who were standing war- time watches around the clock and kept a con- stant vigil of all activity in the area. Not many souvenirs were bought on the is- land. There weren ' t many to sell. The Na- tionalists were at war and didn ' t have time lo enjoy the advantages that visiting American sailors bring. t HONG KONG, Pearl of the Orient, crossroads of the world. A port of mystery, intrigue, contrasts, and oriental splendor. A port of refuge for people of the Chinese mainland. A rest and rec- reation port to conclude a successful Far EastiMii cruise for ISBELL. Hong Kong is not the actual name of the city, but of the island on which the principal city of Victoria is located. Kowloon, across the bay from Hong Kong, is another part of the British Crown Colony where ISBELL sailors sought their bar- gains in clothes, jewelry, ivory, leather goods, watches, and higii fidelity sets. Sightseeing tours were arranged almost daily while we were in the Cro vn Colony, and most men took tlie opportunity to see the island. Out- standing attractions were Tiger Balm Gardens, Repulse Bay and Aberdeen village. . i " ij MIDWAY -PEARL AT LONG LAST! What manner of ship is this I see With all hands turned to on bended knee? All of her crew are working hard While other ships are resting in the yard. Men painting her guns and painting her sides; From every position a bos ' n chair rides. It looks like an ant hill covered with ants; The only difference is liell bottom pants. Trucks full of chow and some full of gear Are constantly stopping along the pier. They ' re filling her holds and taking great care; Could it be that she ' s going somewhere? Snipes are busy checking such things As diesel generator and main bearing rings. Everyone ' s moving at such a fast pace That it looks like some fanatical race. The yeomen are turned to typing out papers, While short timers are doing all kinds of capers. The storekeepers are trying to calculate pay; Gads, even the Doc is painting sick bay. The deck force has gone ape, painting around. From crack of dawn till the sun is drowned. No matter where you look, from No. 2 stack to keel, The waiting is over. THIS IS FOR REAL! What makes a ship act in these strange ways? It ' s easy to figure ; only a few more days. You ask where she ' s going, where she will roam? Nowhere, my friends, she ' s just going HOME! •f I Shore Patrol iPWMitmA t ■ ' .9 - SAN DIEGO -HOME QUEEN OF THE ISBELL MISS PAT VAN NESS Whittier, California SHIP ' S COMPANY ROSTER OF OFFICERS CDR.
