ISBELL, DESDIV 132 Commodore JOHNSON BLACK CAT SHIP HAUNTED BY 13 ' s Bad luck signs are becoming SOP (standard operating procedure) for the crew of the USS ARNOLD J. ISBELL (DD-869) . It seems as though they can ' t get away from number 13. It all started some time ago when the 24-year-old destroyer was assigned to Destroyer Squadron 13--the Black Cat squadron. Things started piling up. however, when the ship left Long Beach Friday, Feb 13, for a six-month deployment to the ' estern Pacific. .A month later, also on a Friday the 13th, ISBELL got underway from Subic Bay, R.P., for her first gunline period off the Republic of ' ietnam coast. Noting the frequency with which 13 ' s were appearing, ISBELL crewmem- bers began searching for more evidence of an unkind fate. They didn ' t get far before someone realized the ship ' s name contains 13 letters. Someone pointed out that a report to the ship ' s skipper, Commander Rob- ert HOFFMAN of Huntington Beach, California, would be futile, because there also are 13 letters in his name. One thing a Navyman can count on is sympathy from the ship ' s chaplain. That is unless he is Lieutenant Commander Robert W. HODGES of Johnson City, Tenn. , then you just count the letters and silently walk away. Good has prevailed on ARNOLD J. ISBELL, though, and so far nothing drastic has happened because of the over-abundance of 13 ' s. But the crew is looking ahead to November 13--which also falls on a Friday.

LCDR Raynis will transfer to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, where he will assume his new job as part of the staff of Commander- in-Chief, United States Pacific Fleet. WEAPONS DEPARTMENT LT Frederick R. Seddon Weapons Officer Tiie Weapons Department is composed of tliree divisions whose purpose is to fight the ship. Without the men of Weapons the ship could not have success- fully completed one of her primary missions in WESTPAC - - that of providing naval gunfire sup- port to our ground troops in Vietnam. Another primary mission, that of Anti- Submarine Warfare, was provided by the men of WA Division. Additionally, Weapons Department was responsible for the general appearance of the ship. WD Division performed this job throughout the cruise. These divisions worl ed together to form the efficient Weapons Department that fought the ISBELL during her last WESTPAC deployment. r LTJGf ASWOI w? ( i Front STG31 TM03 GMGSl WA DIVISION WA Division is responsible for maintaining a constant underwater searcii for submarines which might be preparing to attack the force. Made up of Sonarmen, Torpedomen and ASROC Gunner smates, WA personnel operate the sen- sitive equipment used to detect and attack enemy submarines. During the deployment, they had the opportunity to work with two U.S. submarines in ASW exercises. LTJG Robert A.

WD DIVISION The Boatswain Mates and Seamen of WD Division were responsible for rigging the ship for refuelings, rearmings, vertreps, helicopter operations and whaleboat recoveries. They stood bridge watches-- as lookouts, helmsmen, phone talkers and bo ' sun mates -of -the -watch. The weather was often rough, but the job was always done in the best traditions of the service. In port the deck force was called upon to chip and paint the ship, often when other divisions were on liberty. During shore bombardment they manned gun mounts and magazines, contributing significantly to ISBELL ' s successful accomplish- ment of her mission. t LTJG Roy E.

" As ISBELL ' s five-inch guns blast away at Viet Cong positions, the men of WG Division are in the midst of the firing. Fire Control Technicians man the director and plotting room, while Gunnersmates man key positions in the gun mounts and magazines. During two tours on the " gunline " , ISBELL sailors fired over 4,000 rounds at enemy positions and earned the respect and admiration of everyone she worked with. She fired Naval Gunfire Support (NGFS) for the First Marine Division around Danang, the Americal Division near Chu Lai and the 24th A. R.V.N.

Pier son, USNR Supply Officer The Supply Department is composed of a group of men dedicated to making life on ISBELL a little more pleas- ant. They provide needed services to the whole ship. They cook and serve the food, wash and dry the clothes, cut the hair, pay the crew and sell just about anything you could desire at the ship ' s store. They ensure that we have on board thousands of spare parts, should on -board repair of equipment become necessary. From radio tubes to popcorn and clean whites, the Supply Department makes itself felt throughout the ship. Without their efforts the deployment would not have been as success- ful as it was. i 1 i LTJG Ball Disbursinl SNGeorje 4 LTJG Baldwin van Benthuysen, USNR Disbursing Officer V ' f J MM Front row (kneeling): SDl Farnal, SK3 Baldwin, SHI Pador, SN Leclair, SKSN Daly, SKSN DeSalvatore, TN Rodriguez, TN Deboda.

ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT LT. Ralph W. Hopkins Chief Engineer ISBELL ' s Engineering Department is made up of three hardworking, highly trained divisions, M, B and R Divisions, whose function is to provide the ship with the power necessary to run the many machines throughout the ship. The very propul- sion of the ship is dependent on the constant work of the " snipes " . They worked around the clock to keep the ship operating, and contributed immensely to the success of our mission. B DIVISION B Division BT ' s are seldom seen above deck on ISBELL. They work deep in the bowels of the ship to produce the steam which powers the ship. They clean the boilers underway when the temperature in the " hole " reaches 100 F. Keeping fuel oil service tanks full is another job of the BT ' s, and at the high speeds for which ISBELL is known, it is no easy task. LTJG Paul P.

Conerty, USN Operations Officer The Operations Department is tasked with the job of planning and implementing ISBELL ' s operational commitments. Communications, electronics, intelli- gence, navigation and paperwork are all daily duties of the Operations Department. The department is made up of four divisions: OC, Radiomen; OE, Elec- tronics Technicians; 01, Radarmen; and ON, Quarter- masters, Yeomen, Personnelmen and Postal Qerks. Their jobs are as varied as their rates. - -- ,„,,...,— OC DIVISION The men of OC include radiomen and signalmen. They are responsible for maintaining visual and radio communications with other ships and com- munications stations around the world. Whether in port or at sea, the ship must be able to com- municate, and only through the hard work of our Signal and Radio gangs were we able to fulfill our missions. •ii LTJG Jon P.

This includes the radar and communications equipment throughout the ship. In part due to their work, we were able to make every commitment we were assigned. LTJG Thomas H.

The Radarmen of 01 Division had one of the most important jobs in Westpac--they were required to collect information from the ship ' s sensors- -radar, ECM, lookouts and sonar- -and process this infor- mation in order for the Captain or OOD to make decisions on the operation of the ship. When oper- ating at sea, the radarmen must be constantly aware of the tactical situation. They must also be proficient in communications procedures, anti-submarine war- fare, anti-air warfare and navigation. LTJG Jerry W.

A QM ' s job is the navagation of the ship - - and this can often be a tricky job. Ask one of them about the nightly gunfire support missions in Danang harbor, or the early morning run through the San Bernadino Straits, or the hundreds of hours alongside oilers and ammo ships. The yeomen and personnelmen are responsible for the ship ' s administrative paperwork. They spent many long hours bent over their typewriters, both in port and out. Of course the ship ' s postal clerks need little explanation only that when they were busiest, we were happiest. ENS Frank T.
