This Is The aptain Speakin TI-IIS IS THE CAPTAIN SPEAKING It was a long, arduous cruise. Eight and one-half months is a long time to be away from families and friends. It is also a long time to be away from this great coun- try of ours. By the accomplishment of our assigned jobs we helped to maintain free- dom around the world. What could be more important than that? The performance of you, the officers and men of the Enhance was outstanding. You met every challenge with an enthusiasm and dedication to duty which would make any commanding offi- cer proud to have served with you. To those of you going to new duty assign- - ments or civilian life, good luck. To you A old timers 'I look forward to our continued success in the months ahead. You have all truly lived up to the MSG motto- "Wooden ships and Iron Men." E ., Executive Officer LT T. L.

From the radar antenna, high on the mast to the sonar dome deep in the hull, the Combat Information Center keeps its "eyes"' open for air, surface and underwater movements.5The Radio Gang and Electronics Technicians keep their "ears" tuned for the dits and dahs with a myriad of transmitters, receivers and teletypewriters, sometimes able to sean half the world with a vast Naval Communications network. While up on the open bridge as the quartermasters are busily assisting the navigator in selecting and setting down safe courses for passage, the signalmen are keeping a wary eye on the flagship, waiting for "the word" to be passed along 1122? Signal light, flag hoist and semaphore flags. Herein lies-the function of the Operations Department as pictured above, and that is basically to gather in all avail: ie information, digest it and deliver it to all areas of the ship, so that the ENHANCE may-knov' een, where and by what means her job is to be done. But least we forget those who bandage 0' "ds, cure our colds and soften our hangovers, and those who keep our service records, ar our pay checks and issue our mail, we must remember that the hos- pital corpsmen and -'e an essestial part of the Operations Department.

Since man first venturedito sea in ships, the skills of the mariner have remained a focal point with ' little change. Today's Boatswain's Mate encounters much the same tasks as did his predecessors, and quite a few more, since he is aboard one of the Navy's most specialized ships. It is the men of the Deck Department who practice these ancient, as well as modern arts of deck seamanship and minesweeping, yet find time enough to keep the ship looking smart in the traditional manner which 1. the mark of the Naval vessel. The Gunner's N is also an integral part of the Deck Department. He maintains our gun mount and small arms, 'a state of readiness for any emergency Deck work is, varied and 'clcllenging and if must be done to insure that the ship is ever read for' , . Y . .. heir primary mission - thcx 'eeping of mines. It is the backbone of this department, the seaman, w o keep usq ready to accornpkfish our mission. To be called a "Deck Ape", aboard minesweepers, is tru y an onor. g . as At Work 1 Engineering Department Just what part of the ship is the engineering department? As in all living things life begins and ends with the heart. A ship is a living activity the heart of which is the Engineering Department. Fuel oil' is the "life giving blood." Throbbing diesels and hot pulsing generators deliver life throughout the ship U means of electric cables and wires. Most things in life are taken for granted, but if one wouldbstop and think what life would be like Without the Engineering Department, one would only haveafto look a short Way back into history. In the days of sailing ships, poor sanitation, low water supplies, unattractive and repetitive food supplies, rather risky navigation, armament based on force rat.s.3r'i't'g. n skill, no means of communication beyond visual distance, poor lighting, no heat- ing or ventilation and slow speed were all the rule rather than the exception. In other words, giv- ing a ship a heart has rgade it a complex machine all the parts of which rely heavily on the heart. If the heart or the ship' cops "beating," the ship itself is "dead" in the water. Above are the Enhance men who keep this heart ope ting through long and strenuous hours of patrol, transit and exer- cises. . w i lem 1 'L an , 'W bi i 11' LU ri' WL, G L my I M... . ... .,, -.1 .. . . . .FAQ-f.,:,f.:-.,, ,....,.,,--M ,. ..,. .. . .,, Work ,- A Y ,-,. . . - f, XJ-, ..

Thus, the supply department is justifiably proud of thefhigh morale it helps to maintain aboard the ship. Service to other departments and helping to maintain the ship in a high state of material readiness are prime goals. Supply support aboard the ENI-IANCE has never been relegated to a secondary position. It is a pri mary function and it is given commensurate emphasis with the activities of other departments. To be a storekeeper fm, commissaryman QCS5, messcook, or repair parts petty officer in the ENHANUE denotes a usy, purposeful, "squared away individual" who is forever engaged in "the Wonderful world of supply". . .1 u I x, .. .

The crew takes tender care of the portable fuel cell, "the blob" as it will be with us for a long time Calm Weather greeted us when we left Long Beach but didn't stay with us for long. After a brief stop in Pearl I-Iarbor our course was set for Guam, via Johnston Island and Kwa- jalien Islands. , gmail' - if if . 45, Mimi' 5 A J' I J P56352 Enroute nd EnPort Guam The journey from Pearl Harbor to Guam is long - especially if there is not enough r water for showers. Our evaporators were "broke", Many times the ship broke forma- tion to get under rain clouds. On this leg also many of the crew found out what "sea bats" looked like. Our stay in Guam was lengthy - for our Interim Dry Dock period. The crew Worked hard and played hard. We had a ship's party and on another occasion several men were initiated to higher rates. ' Cn Patrol Leaving Guam for Subic, we ran into what later turned out to be Typhoon 'TAMY". After a Very brief stay in Subic the division split up and each Went to a different area of Market Time Patrol in Viet-Nam. Our mis- sion was to stop and search sea traffic along the coast. Aircraft helped us find contacts to search. 0 2 dd Vietnam Then the hoarding party would be called away and the boat put into the water. The .30 caliber machine-guns would be manned. We would either go after contacts in the motor whale boat and place the boarding party aboard, or We would bring the Contact alongside the fantail for inspection.
