Appointed to the U.,S. Naval Academy from his native state in 1902, he was graduated from Annapolis on February 12, 1906 and commissioned an Ensign on February 13, 1908 following two years at sea. The early years of his career were spent on the battleships RHODE ISLAND, OHIO, and MAINE. He also spent time on USS EAGLE and USS FRANKLIN. In November 1909 he was assigned to USS CHAUNCEY, a unit of the Asiatic Torpedo Fiotilla. He assumed command of USS DALE in April 1910 and in March 1912 returned to CHAUNCEY as Commanding Officer. Transferred to USS FLOR- IDA in December 1912, he was aboard that battleship during the occupation of Vera Cruz, Mexico, in April 1914. For distinguished conduct in battle engage- ments in Vera Cruz he was awarded the Medal of Honor. He became Aide and Flag Lieutenant on the staff of the Commander in Chief, U. S. Atlantic Fleet in July 1914. After a year at this post, he returned to the Naval Academy for duty in the Executive Department. Upon the outbreak of World War I he served as Gunnery Officer of USS 'KEARSARGE until September 1917, after which he assumed command of USS MARGARET. He was assigned to USS ALLEN in February 1918 before taking command of USS BENHAM in May of 1918. For distinguished service as Com- manding Officer USS BENHAM, engaged in the important, exacting, and hazard- ous duty of patroling European waters and protecting vitally important convoys, he was awarded the Navy Cross. From October 1918 to February 1919 he assisted in fitting out USS CRANE at San Francisco. He then became Commanding Officer of USS GRIDLEY upon her commissioning. Retuming to Washington, he was head of the Detail Section, Enlisted Personnel Division in the Bureau of Navigation from April 1919 until September 1922.

In June during the Battle of Midway, he was Senior Task Force Commander, his flag flying in USS YORKTOWN. It was in this battle that the Japanese suffered the first decisive defeat in three hundred and fifty years, restoring the balance of naval power in the Pacific. During the Guadacanal-Tulagi landings on August 7 and 8, 1942, he commanded two of the three Task Forces engaged as well as the American Task Forces in the ensuing battle of the Eastern Solomons. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal "for exceptionally meritorious service as Task Force Commander, United States Pacific F1eet..." during the battles in the Coral Sea and off Midway Island in .Iune 1942.

He was relieved as Commandant in October 1943, and later became'Commander, Alaskan Sea Frontier, with additional duty as Commander North Pacific Force and North Pacific Ocean Area. It was revealed in .luly 1945, that a Task Force under his overall command had made the first penetration through the Kurile Islands into the sea of Okhtosk on March 3 and 4, 1945, and the same task force on February 4, 1944 bombarded Paramushire in the first sea bombardment of the Kurile Islands. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal by the War Depart- ment for "...his professional ability and able leadership in the vast wartime expansion and organization of naval installations in the North Pacific Area...be- tween October 1943 and August 1945." In September 1945, following the cessation of hostilities in the Far East, he proceeded to Ominto, Japan, with the North Pacific Force for the emergency naval occupation of Northern Japan. He remained there until ordered to retum to the United States, and on December 17, 1945, reported for duty as a member of the General Board, Navy Department.

Admiral Frank Jack Fletcher died April 25, 1973. Uss FLETCHER mn-sezp USS FLETCHER CDD-992D is the thirtieth SPRUANCE Class Destroyer to be designed and built by the lngalls Shipbuilding Division of Litton Industries, Pascagoula, Mississippi. Homeported in San Diego, FLETCHER is assigned to Destroyer Squadron F'lVE. The SPRUANCE Class Destroyer is unique among today's warships in that it is the first major class to be powered exclusively by gas turbine engines - four General Electric LM-2500 engines which produce 20,000 shaft horsepower each. Twin controllable-reversible pitch propellers work in conjunction with the engines to move FLETCHER through the water at speeds in excess of 30 knots and give her a degree of maneuverability unequated by any other warship her size. Built with future growth in mind, FLETCHER's design is modular. This allows for easy installation of entire subsystems within the ship. This ease of installation also will allow new weapons and electronics systems to be placed on FLETCHER, thus allowing the ship to be used as a proving ground for new military technology. FLETCHER is truly a ship of the future as well as the present. Crew comfort and habitability were also a prime consideration in FLETCHER's design. Berthing areas are spacious and considerable care has been taken to equip the ship with features uncommon to most destroyers. Such features include: a ship's libraryg a crew's lounge, a gymnasium, a hobby shop, and many other items which enhance crew comfort. In addition to these specifically designed-in comforts, the many automated weapons and engineering systems onboard Fl..ETCHER allow for reduced manning levels. This results in more space and easier living conditions for all. As a highly versatile multi-mission destroyer, FLETCHER is capable of opera- ting independently or in company with amphibious or carrier task forces. Although equipped to handle a wide variety of mission areas, FLETCHER's primary mission is that of Antisubmarine Warfare. FLETCHER canies the most advanced ASW equipment in existence to facilitate her accomplishment of this complex and demanding task. The ship is equipped with a sophisticated sonar, the SQS-53, which is directly integrated with a third generation digital computer system, the Naval Tactical Data System. In addition to her sonar, FLETCHER's ASW weapons suit include an Antisubmarine Rocket CASROCJ and two triple barreled Mark 32 torpedo tubes. This integrated combat systems provides FLETCHER with an enhanced target information processing capability and an extremely fast threat reaction time. FLETCHER also boasts two 5 inch 54 caliber Mark 45 fully automatic gun mounts controlled by the digital Mark 86 Fire Control System. Also integrated with NTDS, these systems allow FLETCHER to excell in her secondary mission areas of Naval Gunfire Support Surface Warfare, and Anti-Air Warfare. ln conclusion, USS FLETCHER constitutes a destroyerman's dream. She incorporates the best of modern technology. Her exceptional propulsion system and fully integrated combat system combine with her modular construction to make FLETCHER a platform not be surpassed. Commander Francis K.

This was heard endlessly throughout the WestPac but mostly during meal hours or sleeping hours. If you were not involved you got used to it but if you were a part of it you probably didn't. The flight quarters personnel deserve a lot of credit for a job well done. Flight Quarters is set any time an operation with a helicop- ter is anticipated. These operations included launching and landing of MAGUS 34 Cour birdj, refueling, mail and PAX Cpassengerj deliveries, vertical replenishments for supplies and ammo, and medivacs.

Be you captain or recruit, each will be at the mercy of the King. The seas that girdle this globe are the sovereign domain of Neptune. Before him each must kneel in tribute, as his is the true demo- cracy where all are treated the same as his servants. There are two ways to survive his wrath, as Neptune believes in being fair. The first is sport. VVhereby the day before the crossing is one on which those who are unworthy of belonging to his court may try to seize control of the ship. lf this be done-meaning none of Neptunes own are free-then the ship may cross the equator unscathed. Good chance, but none have been successful during the centuries man has dared think he has challenged the sea. The other means is to accept the scum yea be, and crawl before the King, when he comes to hold court. lf, with his omnipotent benevolence, he sees a grain of worth, you will be given a chance. But this chance is paying penance for all your crimes to past. If you survive this tribute, then yea shall sail freely and proud, and become an Honorable Shellback.

Port Visits During WestPac the most enjoyable thing to do is pull into port. We spent many enjoyable hours in some of the finest ports of the world. We started off with Hawaii and ended with Hawaii. We spent 14 enjoyable days in the Philippine Islands, six days in Mom- basa, Kenya, three days in Singapore and last but not least three days in Hong Kong, one of the most exciting places in the world. We may forget the long hard hours we spent at sea but l'm sure we'll never forget the foreign countries we visited.

Much more. lt is a throbbing world in miniature. Today, "the piece of useless granite" of 1841, as it was described in Queen Victoria's time, is a showcase of pro- gress and prosperity. The land that once had no water, and little more than a sheltered harbor is now a must for every traveller and on the lips of all who have been there. Founded on the trade of tea clippers and merchant adven- tures, it now plays host to mammoth container ships, ocean going liners and dozens of international airlines. Hong Kong is a port for all shoppers. It offers the traveller a shopping experience unlike any other. If you can get past the nightmare of the number and variety of shops you can see why Hong Kong is one of the busiest ports in the world. After a long day of shopping, the dazzling Hong Kong lights will mezmerize you. Hong Kong by night will take your breath away with its lights and night clubs. Although it is not "down under," Hong Kong offered the crew a well deserved port visit with its culture Cantonese with a slight British influence. Upon leaving, the FLETCHER sailors noticed she appeared to be riding low in the water, due, no doubt, to the tons of china, crystal, and clothes brought aboard in Hong Kong.

An Explosive Grdanance Disposal CE.O.D.j team was transferred by helo from the USS CAMDEN CAOE-25 to FLETCHER. Our mission included a cruise up into the Gulf of Oman, a day and a half wait some 300 yards away from the BURAK-M, and finally a fast cruise back to the Battle Group with pieces of the missile and warhead on board.

During this last week of the deployment, our Tigers were taken on tours of the ship and were permitted to participate in many of the daily shipboard evolutions. ' Many demonstrations of FLETCHER's capabilities, includ- ing a night gun-shoot using star-shells, were shown to our Tigers. Possibly most exciting was the air show put on by the CONSTELLATlON's air group. Who can forget the F-14's going supersonic as they passed down FLETCHER's port side at an altitude of about 800 feet.
