Prior to departing her old homeport of San Francisco, FINCH'S primary mission was
with the seaward extension of the Western Contiguous Radar Barrier. This E assignment
gave FINCH a fairly reliable schedule of about three weeks in port and three to four
weeks at sea, never more than 500 miles away from the coast of California. It meant that
families of FINCH sailors living in the area could expect their husbands and sons to be
home at certain times during the month.
During the spring of 1965 the ship received news that the Radar Barrier would be dis-
continued and that FINCH would most likely be decommissioned some time in the fall.
However, on May 21, just prior to departing on her last patrol, FINCH received dra-
matic news. In the short space of 52 days the ship's status would change from that of a
picket ship to that of a ship in the front lines of the U. S. Seventh Fleet's effort in South
Vietnam. At this time the date of departure from San Francisco was set for June 3. It al-
lowed exactly two weeks to get the ship ready for a very long journey across the Pacific
to he followed by coastal patrols off the coast of South Vietnam.
To say the least those two weeks were among the most hectic in FINCHHS 23 year ca-
reer. Those weeks were also a period of extreme uncertainty for FINCH families. For ex-
ample, among the many unanswered questions at that time were those of future homeport
and length of initial deployment. There were rumors that FINCH would be homeported
in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii-there were also rumors that the ship would remain homeport-
ed in San Francisco. Finally there was a possibility that the new homeport would be
FINCH went into Bethlehem Steel Company's drydock in San Francisco on Monday,
May 24- for a short repair period not knowing the answers. There was barely time for a
ship's party on Treasure Island in the midst of the rigors of 12 to 16 hour Working days.
All managed to have a good time althou h thes ' '11
g e questions Sll remained unanswered. The
evening was highlighted by a champagne toast to all of F INC1-Ps ladies. The ship came
out of drydock on June 1 and left San Francisco on June 3, as scheduled, still unin.
formed as to the length of deployment and future homeport.
The first stop was Pearl Harbor on June 9, the first time that FINCH had been that
far aWaY from the States Since .lune of 1962. Ten days later after strenuous training and
instruction by the Staff of Destroyer Flotilla Five and the Fleet Training Group FINCH
left Pearl Harbor and, while underway for Guam, received news that Guam would be the
new homeport. We arrived in Guam on June 29 and spent most of the six days there get-
ting acquainted with this new home while making some last minute repairs prior to de-
parture for Vietnam, our ultimate destination. 0
FINCH arrived on the scene of Market Time operations on July 12 and assumed a
brand new role at 1517 local time. Thelfirst patrol lasted until July 28 after which
FINCH travelled to Hong Kong for a short but very enjoyable visit. The ship returned to
Market Time on August 3 and stayed on patrol until September 4. As a pleasant surprise
this patrol completed our first deployment and FINCH arrived back in Guam on Septem-
ber 12 for a short ten-week upkeep period.
The first full deployment commenced on November 22 when FINCH left Guam for six
and one half months. During this period the ship covered 42,600 miles and visited Ma-
nila, Hong Kong, Kaohsiung, and Bangkok. In the course of its job of coastal surveillance
FINCH detected 6,843 ships transiting the Market Time area. Of this number, 1003 were
large merchant vessels which were tracked and reported. The remainder consisted of many
types, ranging in size from small wooden cargo vessels to fishing boats. Of these, 2,336
were lnspected and 1 642 were stopped and searched FINCH also conducted Naval Gun
fire Support missions in support of land efforts against the Viet Cong The biggest con
tribution in this regard occurred ln January 1966 when 133 rounds were fired in a two
and one half hour period in support of Vletnamese Army operations 1n the vicinity of Tam
uan located two hundred and sixty miles northeast of Saigon FINCH had 51 underway
replemshments during 125 days at sea enabling the ship to remain on stat1on for pro
longed patrols One of these patrols lasted 53 days and there were several of 30 days or
FINCH finally departed Market Time on May 13 and arrived in Subic Bay on May
15 for an Operational Readiness Evaluation by Commander Escort Squadron Seven The
ship did its best to add to its fine reputation very deservedly earned as a result of stren
uous efforts to live up to her slogan Foresight sends FINCH further Following this
short action packed inspection she sailed to Kaohsiung for an upkeep period in this one

Victoria and Kowloon across the harbor
Modern apartments on Victoria Peak
No sailor can fail to be impressed
with the sights that greet his eyes as
his ship enters Hong Kong's almost
land-locked Victoria Harbor.
High sterned junks will catch one's
eye, their low bows busy with Chinese
coolies looking the same as centuries
of ancestors before them.
The walla-wallas, the water taxi
motor boats and the Star ferries are
in constant motion in the busy harbor.
Hong Kong island, with its capital
city, Victoria, is to the left. Victoria
Peak towering some 1,805 feet above
the bay is the backdrop for the city's
gleaming white skyscrapers.
Directly across from Victoria is the
Kowloon peninsula, the city of Kow-
loon, and the main docking terminals
for ocean liners. This fantastic harbor
covers sixteen square miles, averaging
from one to three miles across.

"M" Machinery Division is responsible for the propulsion system of the ship. On larger ships
that is the division's only function. But on FINCH the divisionis responsibilities are more exten-
sive. The HENs" flilnginemenj maintain the main propulsion diesel engines and the reduction
gears. Beside the associated accessories, they also maintain the evaporators which convert sea wat-
er to fresh water for drinking, cooking, bathing, and for the laundry. The diesel electric generators
which provide electricspower are also their responsibility. The 'uBTs" fBoiler Tendersj maintain
the boilers, which produce steam for heat, for the galley, and forthe evaporators.

We have an entire task group alongside, any reason why we can't talk to them?
We checked all our transmitters and receivers fno one stole themj, they seem to he
putting out all right. Did you identify them?
Oh yes, they're definitely U. S.
Thereis a whole task group two miles away, why can't we talk to them?
We'll check our transmitters Q Johnny reports that they are still therei.
Are you sure they are U. S.?
Wait one, we're getting flashing light now . . . Ooops, sorry Radio they are Aus-
And so, another day of communications begins. In addition to Radiomen, OC Division has Yeomen,
a Personnelman, a Hospital Corpsman, Signalmen, Quartermasters, and a Postal Clerk, who are all
equally important for the ship's operations.

OUR SUPPLY DEPARTMENT
What is the status of the synchro I ordered? There will be a number of guests in the wardroom for
dinner tonight. I want to buy a new watch. How about a haircut? How's chances of getting a pair of
Whites pressed, I need them right away? How about special pay, we've been in two days already and
I'm broke? When can I come in and change my allotment?
These are some of the daily comments heard throughout the ship by members of the supply depart
ment. The supply department takes care of these and similar problems each day, cheerfully and as ex-
peditiously as possible.
The primary function of the supply epartmen IS
ceives, and accounts for all consumables, repair parts, equipment, and subsistence items used by the
various departments within the ship. It is also the responsibility of the supply department to prepare
appetizing and well balanced meals for the crew
Other functions include the operation of the shipis laundry, ship's store, barber shop, and the dis-
d t ' material and services. In this respect it orders, re-

Historically the Boatswain Mates have been and still are the backbone of the ship. This rating,
which is the senior one in the Navy, includes all the skills that have been most essential to the
operation of ships since the days of sailing vessels. Aboard F INCH the Boatswain Mates work
long hours both in-port and underway. Their biggest responsibility is the maintenance and preser-
vation of topside spaces. It is a tedious and endless task, but the results are well Worth the effort.
The results range from the seaworthy condition of the ship, to the good impression that visitors
have always had upon seeing FINCH. Market Time has placed even more demands upon the men
of First Division. A junk which must be investigated may show up at any time and then there are
fenders to be rigged, the motor whaleboat may have to be lowered and manned, and men must be
stationed on the fantail with weapons in the event that the junk is not friendly. In addition the
Deck Force may be called upon day or night to rig for underway replenishments which keep the
ship supplied with fuel, ammunition, spare parts, and food. All of these and countless other tasks
are performed by the men of First Division.

The FORCE of the ship is found in FOX Division: The Gunners Mates
maintain our ships deadly 3"f 50 caliber guns. Every day they are out on
their guns maintaining, cleaning, repairing, insuring that whenever accurate
fire power is needed their guns will be ready. -
FINCH'S guns are locked on target by fire control radars, computers,
and directors which are maintained by the Fire Controlmen.
The primary job of the Sonarmen is to detect submarines. They also
make bathythermograph drops and report their data. The Torpedoman
maintains the torpedoes and depth charges, and is trained to destroy enemy
submarines with his weapons.
