' O ' Watck . . . War JsT mrKemf lot Away Bldorado Ship ' s Mistory The USS ELDORADO, an Amphibious Force Flag- ship, began her Naval career Aug. 25, 1944. The ELDORADO was originally designed as the SS MONSOON and built by the North Carolina Ship Building Co. , Wilmington, N.C. The conversion to an Amphibious Force Flagship was accomplished by the Bethlehem Steel Corp. at Brooklyn, N.Y. The ELDORADO, named for a mountain range in Nevada, is 459 feet long and displaces about 14,000 tons. She has a maximum speed in excess of 15 knots. Extensive electronic equipment has been placed aboard to enable the ship to accomplish her mission as an Amphibious Force Flagship. In amphibious operations the ELDORADO is responsible for the coordination of all land, surface and air forces in the conduct of an amphibious assault. Commander Amfiiibious Croup Four was the first staff to be embarked and was aboard for a period of only two months. On Jan. 10, 1945 the ELDORADO became the flagship for Commander Amphibious Forces Pacific Fleet, and remained so throughout the remainder of World War II. As flagship she participated in the amphibious invasions of Iwo Jima and Okinawa. The end of World War II found the ELDORADO in Manila Bay. Returning to the U.S. via Pearl Harbor, where Commander Amphibious Forces Pacific Fleet and Staff were disembarked, the ELDORADO arrived in San Francisco Oct. 12, 1945. From the end of hostilities on Sept. 2, 1945 until the commencement of the Korean campaign, the ELDORADO made several trips to the Western Pacific acting as flagship for Commander Naval Forces Western Pacific. Intermingled among the tours in the Western Pacific were the never ending training exercises in which all ships participate to maintain their high degree of readiness. One of the exercises was Portex, an amphibious assault exercise conducted on the East Coast. The ELDORADO made a special trip to the East Coast to participate in this exercise. Aug. 28, 1950 the ELDORADO, with Commander Amphibious Group THREE and his staff embarked, departed San Diego for Inchon, Korea. She arrived 18 days later to participate in the latter stages of the invasion and act as a standby flagship. Altogether the ELDORADO remained in Inchon Harbor 148 days and acted as coordinating ship for the unloading phase of the invasion. Of the 385 days spent away from her home port, the ELDORADO spent 246 days in Korean waters. Pusan; Wonsan, Wolmi Do and Hungnam became part of the crew ' s vocabulary. It was during this period that the first pictures of the Kaesong Truce talks were transmitted to the outside world from ELDORADO. In October, 1952 the ELDORADO became flagship for Admiral Moore, Commander Amphibious Group ONE, and as such participated in Operation Big Switch. . . the transporting of the Chinese and North Korean POWs from tike camps at Cheju Do and Koje Do to the port of Inchon for repatriation. Completion of the Korean War put the ELDORADO back again on rotation between stateside and WESTPAC acting as flagship for various force and fleet commanders. From April 15 to Aug. 17, 1955 the ship acted as flagship for Commander Seventh Fleet. In 1956 and 1957 the rotation to the Western Pacific was interrupted for replenishment runs to the Arctic to provide logistical support for our Air Defense Early Warning Stations. On completion of the Arctic replenishment runs the ELDORADO reverted back to her normal operational commitments, participating in several amphibious assault exercises and rotation to WESTPAC. ELDORADO completed an eight-week deployment to the Caribbean during the Cuban Crisis from October through December 1962. She then returned to the West Coast for amphibious operations and a yard overhaul in preparation for WESTPAC. On Jan. 25, 1964 ELDORADO began her deploy- ment. She spent 48 days at sea on patrol ofi the coast of Vietnam following the Gulf of Tonkin incident. Vice Admiral John B. Colwell, Commander Amphibious Forces, U. S. Pacific Fleet, came aboard on ELDORADO ' s return to the states in October, 1964. Operation Silver Lance was conducted in February and March of 1965 with the ship entering the yards at Long Beach for a FRAM II overhaul soon after. With extensive renovations including new radar and electronic capabilities and a huge air condi- tioning system, ELDORADO left on this WESTPAC deployment Oct. 18, 1965. During this period through April, 1966, she participated in several amphibious operations against the Viet Cong along the coast of South Vietnam. Rear Adm. Donald W. Wulzen COMMANDER AMPHIBIOUS FORCE, SEVENTH FLEET COMMANDER AMPHIBIOUS GROUP ONE U. S. mm. Rear Admiral Donald W. Wulzen, com- mander of the task force that made the first landing of combat -ready marines on the beaches of Da Nang, South Vietnam, and his sea-going staff of 35 officers and 80 enlisted men, are home -ported at Subic Bay, Republic of the Philippines . He is charged with the rapid transportation of combat troops to hot spots throughout the Western Pacific and is the direct represen- tative in Southeast Asia of Commander Amphibious Forces, U.S. Pacific Fleet, whose headquarters are in Coronado, Calif. Admiral Wulzen, 53, took command of Seventh Fleet ' s Amphibious Force on Jan. 20, 1965, in ceremonies aboard the amphibious command ship Mount McKinley at Subic Bay. Capt. David F. Loomis CHIEF OF STAFF Captain David F . Loomis became Chief of Staff to Commander Amphibious Force, U.S. Seventh Fleet, on Aug. 27, 1965. He assumed the No. 2 post in the Western Pacific amphibious organization in a turn- over ceremony aboard the flagship Estes at Subic Bay. He became associated with the WestPac amphibs after completing a tour of duty on the staff of Commander Amphibious Force Pacific, where he had been Assistant Chief of Staff for Administration and Personnel, Inspecting the troops. i ' COMMANDING OFFICER Capt.

Emergency At Sea On Oct, 21, 1965 Frank Bona vota, 18 year old seaman, reported to sick bay and collapsed. Examination and blood tests revealed he was undergoing severe gastro- intestinal hemorrhaging. He was kept alive with 9 pints of blood donated by Eldorado ' s crew and officers. Fortunately, the aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk was able to steam within 30 miles of Eldorado, and, on the morning of Oct, 23, a helicopter flew to our flight deck and evacuated the patient to the carrier. After surgery there. Bona vota was transferred to Hawaii and the Tripler Army Hospital . He recovered and is now serving on another ship. Dr. Miller supervises loading patient into helo. Asbestos suited men stand guard in case of a fire as patient is taken to helo . 84 - yh f ...s And Another . . . On Oct. 30, 1965 a sailor on the USS Weiss, our ac- companying ship, suffered chest injuries and rib fractures after a 50 cal . machine gun malfunctioned with the bolt recoiling into his chest. These pictures show the transfer of the patient by hi-line to the Eldorado. Seas frequently spilled over the aft deck of the Weiss, but an excellent transfer was effected due to superb handling on the part of deck crews from both vessels. The patient re- covered aboard the Eldorado and was returned to the Weiss to finish out the tour in WestPac. 85 Deep sea fishing brought pleasure and fish to many aboard including Capt.

Handclasp - Project Concern Upon arrival in Hong Kong Nov. 20, Eldorado began to unload drugs and other medical supplies transported across the ocean as Project Handclasp. The Navy carries these supplies to distant areas of the Pacific where charitable organizations work with the local population and supply medical care. Our supplies were designated for Project Concern and the Fenwick St. Pier Mission. The former has three clinics in the Hong Kong area. The official turnover of supplies took place on our deck. Dr. Miller accompanied the Project Concern boat Helpful Hannah to the " Yamatia " (typhoon shelter) where he had a reunion with Dr. Jim Turpin, organizer of the project. Both come from the same town in Kentucky. Dr. Turpin and his clinic doctors and technicians accompanied the boat back to the Eldorado and personally thanked Capt .

The doctor, two corpsmen, dental technician, quartermaster and five marines composed the team. A marine captain, dentist and an interpreter from the USS Princeton accompanied the group. With field packs loaded with everything from penicillin to soap and candy, the team set up a treatment area in the village elders ' house. About 300 people, mostly children, were treated. Over 300 bars of soap were given away and 80 polaroid pictures were taken as momentos for the villagers. Leaving the ship. Gunner protects the helo. Paillot takes polaroid shots of the children.
