. U.S.S. ENGLAND DLG-22 WESTPAC-73 AUGUST 10, 1973 to FEBRUARY 8, 1974 ' !f0 - .. . : aE- - ■Sfc ' • A deployment begins long before a ship leaves home and loved ones behind, and goes west for duty in the Seventh Fleet. It begins almost as soon as the last one ends. It begins in the never-ending process of training and re-training crewmembers, new and old, and continues in the maintenance and repairs that keep a ship working. Before ENGLAND left San Diego in August, months of work, planning, practice, and steaming had assured that we would be able to perform when and as required. This book Is dedicated to the wives, families, and friends who waited. THE MOD SQUAD ENGLAND became a member of — and the flagship for — Destroyer Squadron Thirty-One on January 1, 1973, when Commodore Kolstad broke his pennant aboard ENGLAND. The Mod Squad deployed together on August 10, Commodore Kolstad and his staff riding ENGLAND to Subic Bay. The Commodore again rode ENGLAND throughout our seven-week Indian Ocean voyage, relinquishing his Red Stallion flagship to Rear Admiral William A. Myers III and Cruiser Destroyer Group Three for the transit back home. It was a privilege and a pleasure to serve as flagship for Commodore Kolstad and his staff. COMDESRON THREE ONE Captain Tom I. Kolstad is from Palestine, Tex- as. Graduating from the U. S. Naval Academy in 1950, his initial assignment was to USS ROCHESTER (CA-124) for duty, followed by tours in the outfitting crew of USS NORFOLK (DL-1) and as first commanding Officer of USS WHIPPOORWILL (MSC-207), with additional duty as Commander Mine Division 32. After an assignment in the Officer Distribution Section of the Bureau of Naval Personnel, Captain Kolstad returned to sea as Operations Officer in USS TURNER JOY (DD-951), followed by graduate study in Political Science at the University of Califor- nia, Berkeley. After obtaining a Master ' s Degree, Captain Kolstad reported to the Staff of Commander U. S. SEVENTH FLEET, as Aide and Flag Secretary. Assignment as Executive Officer of USS DALE (DLG-19) was followed by command of USS COCHRANE (DDG-21). In July, 1968, Captain Kolstad returned to the Bureau of Naval Personnel. Captain Kolstad comes to DESRON 31 from a tour in Vietnam where he served as Commander Coastal Surveillance Force (CTF-115), Senior Ad- visor to the Vietnamese Navy Sea Operations Com- mand, and Assistant Chief of Staff for Operations, Commander U. S. Naval Forces, Vietnam. Included among Captain Kolstad ' s decorations are two Legion of Merits, Bronze Star, Navy Unit Commendation, Meritorious Unit Commendation,, and various Vietnamese and Korean Service Medals.

Kern. The city of Portland, Oregon, greeted us with a friendliness and enthusiasm rarely seen. We stayed in Portland three days and four nights, hosting of- ficial visits, giving guided tours to over 6000 guests, and embari ing visitors for our cruises both up and down the beautiful Columbia River. The Rose Festival trip transits provided excellent training op- portunities in preparation for our deployment. COMMANDING OFFICER Captain James R. Hogg was born in Annapolis, Maryland on November 23, 1934 and was com- missioned as an Ensign in June 1956 upon gradua- tion from the Naval Academy. Early sea duty tours included Gunnery Officer, Communications Officer, and Navigator of USS UNION (AKA-106) homeported in San Diego, California, and Executive Officer and Navigator of USS FEARLESS (MSO-442) homeported in Charleston, South Carolina. From 1961 to 1963, he served as Aide and Flag Lieutenant to Commander Amphibious Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet, followed by a tour as Operations Officer of USS ROBISON (DDG- 12). In 1965 he reported to the Chief of Naval Operations for duty as Assistant Secretary to CNO ■ for JGS MATTERS (OP-004S). After graduation in ... iset from the Air Command and Staff College at Maxwell Air Force Base, Montgomery, Alabama he returned to San Diego as Executive Officer of USS KING (DLG-10). In 1969 he served as Operations Officer on the staff of Commander Cruiser-Destroyer Flotilla NINE, and in 1970 he reported to Commander Cruiser- Destroyer Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet initially as Assis- tant Training and Readiness Officer and ultimately as Long Range Planning and Net Assessments Of- ficer. He currently is serving as Commanding Officer of USS ENGLAND (DLG-22), homeported in San Diego. Captain Hogg is authorized to wear the Meritorious Service Medal with a gold star in lieu of the second award, and the Navy Commendation Medal. EXECUTIVE OFFICER Lieutenant Commander Gaylord O. Paulson, Executive Officer. An executive officer is a comman- ding officer ' s right hand man, second in command of the ship. Perhaps an executive officer ' s most impor- tant job is to act as the intermediary between his captain and his chain of command — both up and down the chain— in every facet of the ship ' s ad- ministration. He is indispensable in the generating and executing of policies throughout the ship. His door must be continuously open to both his officers and his crew, and his experience always available to help solve any and all problems a crewmember might have. In addition, an executive officer is directly responsible for the administration of the personnel office that tends to the continual comings and goings of a highly fluid crew. This is a task whose importance is felt by each crewmember, but whose tremendous size is rarely understood or ap- preciated. An executive officer must be knowledgeable, dedicated, flexible, understanding, just, and human. Our executive officer, generously endowed with all these qualities, has been an impor- tant motivating influence in all of ENGLAND ' S endeavors. ' ? ' : ' :i§! ' siSf ' i ?rA5iVVf5 ?

A replenishment evolution means work for all hands from the bridge to bilge, with no room for errors. J P f A H K ll Setting up for an UNREP. 52 Perhaps the closest teamwork possible between two ships. Connected together, one hundred feet apart, and steaming at twelve knots; refueling, exchanging movies, cargo and mall. One mistake could spell disaster. 53 UNDERWAY During the long haul from tiny Midway to Okinawa. USS MARVIN SHIELDS (DE-1066) began to run short on fuel oil— -no small problem when you are thousands of miles from the nearest " gas station. " ENGLAND fortunately was able to lend a hand, refuelling the smaller escort ship from her own tanks. We were alongside MARVIN SHIELDS for five hours, doubling as a fleet oiler— an unusual job for a DLG— and the problem was solved. Holiday Routine?

Usually pret- ty boring, but ENGLAND ' S trips to the Gulf this time were anything but. First there was the PENDLETON. Then we got to evade typhoons— four of them— not to mention the nighttime rescue of a seaman over- board from USS CAMDEN, and an airshow, seen from 400 yards off the aircraft carrier USS HANCOCK ' S port beam. Even so, thirty days at sea gets to be a long time, and sailors are always glad to leave the Gulf. BIG MOTHER SIX -ONE Big Mother Six-One and a crewmember standing by. Flight deck gear festoons the after launcher, ready for flight quarters at a moment ' s notice (right). 60 TYPHOON EVASION A typhoon— the South Pacific name for a hurricane— is so immensely powerful, it defies description. When they threatened our Yankee sta- tion area, we left, for a typhoon can tear a ship apart. Just skirting the periphery of one (as we did) is an unforgettable experience. I October 1973, seen from ENGLAND ' S bridge, a ghostly column of ships trespassing in Typhoon Paula ' s misty, stormy gulf. 61 UNDERWAY September 25, 1973, was the day that USNS SGT. JACK J. PENDLETON ran aground in the Gulf, on a tiny sandbar called Triton Island. ENGLAND was first on the scene, just hours after the groun- ding. We left one day later, relieved by USS COOK. In spite of valiant salvage efforts, PENDLETON ' S fate was sealed.

An A-3 " Skywarrior " makes a low pass on ENGLAND, flying the Stars ' n ' Stripes from his cockpit! 63 UNDERWAY ' ' SPECIAL OPERATIONS " In late November, we left Subic Bay in the Philippines, and headed west for " special operations. " In company with the carrier ORISKANY (CVA-34) and three other ships, our goal was a part of the Indian Ocean called the Arabian Sea. Fifty-one days later, after twice transitting the Straits of Malacca (the world ' s longest straits), visiting the Seychelles Islands and Singapore, and hosting Nep- tunus Rex, we returned to Subic. Transitting the Straits of Singapore on a hazy Saturday morning behind USS ORISKANY, USS ROBERT E. PEARY, USS HAROLD E. HOLT, and USS BUCHANAN. I I .u . ' ani«WTIV- — ■: ■wr-c The Straits of Malacca— over 450 miles long— are vitally strategic in today ' s world. We shared them with the Soviet naval ships and sub- marines shown here, and hundreds of merchantmer from ports all over the world. 64 The Indian Ocean was a never-ending presence for us sailing it. Surprisingly big, empty. The ex- panse of smooth, quiet, tropical blue ocean amazed us with its clear, beautiful skies and perfect weather. The only problem was that it was 10,000 miles from home. the OCEAN CROSSING THE LINE People who have not crossed the Equator are Pollywogs. Those who have, are Shellbacks. There is only one small catch . . . first you have to be in- itiated. Of course, King Neptune and his Court are always glad to help out. On ENGLAND, our line- crossing ceremonies took two days. First, the Pollywogs took over the ship. Things were tough for the Shellbacks for a while, but they did recapture the ship in time for a visit from Davey Jones, King Nep- tune ' s Scribe. He announced the King ' s visit, plann- ed for the following morning, and was entertained by a Pollywog Beauty Contest and Talent Show. The next day was very tough for the Pollywogs. King Neptune and his Court had many devious punishments for recalcitrant ' Wogs; like it or not, they became Trusty Shellbacks. It was two great days of good, clean (?) fun!

LIBERTY PORTS During her six-month cruise, ENGLAND moored at Pearl Harbor, Midway, Okinawa, Subic Bay, Kao-Hsiung, Port Victoria, Singapore, and Guam. Subic, Kao-Hsiung, and Singapore were working ports. Port Victoria was our Christmas R R port. The rest were only transit ports. We didn ' t put into the much-hoped-for Hong Kong, but " Liberty Call! " sounds good in any port. m l itt M ■ RELAX AND ENJOy H vtm ' Htu iiJ»w 1 I ' ' 1 L .. OVERNIGHT LIBERTY AUTHORIZED AT GRANDE ISLAND A " 9 . : 1 y ' ' " ' imt ; TiSmm m 70 SUBICBAY, P. L Subic Bay, in the Philippines Islands, evokes many images in the sailor ' s mind: sultry tropical weather, Grande Island, tours to Manila, good liberty. 71 LIBERTY KAO-HSIUNG Kao-Hsiung, Republic of China (Taiwan), is a place of mixed impressions: an unbelievably busy port bustling with hundreds of merchant ships, and rich with a world ' s commerce. The cars and the crowds almost remind you of home, but this is East, not West, and you cannot forget it for a minute. 72 LIBERTY PORT VICTORIA Port Victoria is the capital and largest city (12,- 000) of the Seychelles Islands, British Crown Colony, a tiny island chain below the Equator in the Indian Ocean. The Seychelles offered flawless weather and a relaxed pace for Christnnas liberty for a deserving crew of Shellbacks. The Islands ' perfect tropical beauty made them a unique experience for each of us. 73 LIBERTY Port Victoria nestles invisibly in the hills of Mahe Island, Seychelles Islands.

There we embarked Rear Admiral William A. Myers III, and his Cruiser-Destroyer Group Three staff. Late on the 19th, we bid Subic adieu, heading for Guam. Admiral Myers flew ahead to San Diego from there, leaving his Chief of Staff, Captain Frank C. Collins, in charge. Only two weeks to go now, and the anticipation was growing.
