EXECUTIVE OFFICER After serving many years in many types of naval vessels, I can truthfully say that Big CIM is head and shoul- ders above them all. vShe has an excel- lent reputation throughout the fleet and I ' m certain that thousands and thousands of former crew members experienced at least a touch of nostalgia when they read about her recent 25 th anniversary. Any ship is only as good as her crew and Big CIM has been blessed with a con- tinuity of outstanding officers and men second to none. The present crew is no exception and it is a real pleasure to call them shipmates. The j resent WEST- PAC cruise and my tour of duty in CIMARRON are nearly over, but will never be forgotton. LCDR H.
