USS FLOYD B. PARKS tDD884l
The U.S.S. FLOYD B. PARKS is named for Maior Floyd Bruce
Parks, U.S.M.C., a marine aviator reported missing in action 4 Iune
1942 in the defense of Midway Island against the assaults of the
Iapanese Navy. Maior Parks, bom in Salisbury, Missouri, was en-
listed in the Navy for two years prior to his appointment to the
United States Naval Academy in Iune, 1930 and was commissioned
a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps on 31 May 1934. He
rose through the ranks in the Corps to be commissioned Maior less
than a month before the action at Midway. Maior Parks has been
awarded the Navy Cross, Special Letter of Commendation from the
Secretary of the Navy,'the Purple Heart, Presidential Unit Citation,
American Defense Service Medal, and Asiatic-Pacific Area Cam-
paign Medal. -
The Parks was the ' ship of Commander Destroyer Squadron
ONE from 1945 until December 1958 and serves in the U.S. Pacific
Fleet under Commander Cruiser Destroyer Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet.
One of the GEARING class, the Parks is 390 feet in length and 41
feet wide. She displaces, fully loaded, over 3000 tons and has an
average draft of 15 feet. Her two engines, developing a total of
60,000 HP can drive the ship in excess of 30 knots and at cruising
speed can drive her without refueling over 6,500 miles.
The ship's keel was laid on 30 October 1944 by the Consolidated
Steel Corporation in Orange, Texas, on the banks of ine Sabine
River. Mrs. F. B. Parks, widow of the late Maier Parks, sponsored
the ship at her launching on 31 March 1945. Ths Parks was put in
commission on 31 Iuly 1945 proceeding from Orange, Texas to the
Todd Ship Yards at Galveston, Texas for final alterations. CDR
Morgan Slayton was the first Captain. After completion of altera-
tions she proceeded to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba for her shakedown
cruise. Following this cruise, she proceeded to Charleston, South
Carolina in October 1945 and celebrated Navy Day by taking part
in ceremonies conducted at Pensacola, Florida.
In October 1945 the Parks received orders to ioin the U.S. Pacific
Fleet and proceeded via the Panama Canal to San Diego, Cali-
fomia which was to become her new home port.
On 28 November 1945 bad luck first struck the Parks. Upon en-
tering Pearl Harbor on her first cruise to the Far East she ran
aground off the entrance to the harbor. She entered the yards at
Pearl Harbor to repair damages suffered in the grounding and
remained in dry dock until 24 Ianuary 1946. Leaving Oahu she
set her course for Hong Kong, where she arrived on 9 February
1946. CDR I. H. Brandt relieved as Commanding Officer in May.
The Parks operated in the Hong Kong-Hainan area until Iune, then
moved to Shanghai. She then proceeded to the Guam-Saipan area,
operating from this point until relieved on 28 Ianuary 1947. Upon
being relieved she returned to the United States via Pearl Harbor.
CDR Richard E. Nichols relieved as Commanding Officer on 3
In February 1948 the Parks proceeded to Iapan for her first tour
of occupation duty. During April of 1948 the Parks represented the
U.S. Naval Forces in the Far East at the funeral of President Roxas
of the Philippine Islands conducted at Manila. One officer and
twenty-five men paraded in the funeral procession.
On 30 September 1948 the Parks was relieved of duty in Iapan
and proceeded to San Diego via Pearl Harbor arriving in time for
Christmas Holidays. During February of 1949 the Parks partici-
pated in the cold weather exercise MICOWEX visiting Kodiak,
During April, May, and Iune of 1949 the Parks was in Mare
Island Naval Shipyards. Valleio, Califomia, completing the over-
haul on 10 Iune and proceeding to San Diego where she con-
ducted local training exercises until October of 1949. CDR Herbert
G. Claudius became the fourth Captain on 16 Iuly 1949.
The Parks left for her third tour of duty in the Far East arriving
in Iapan in November of 1949. During her eight months stay she
visited such interesting places as the Philippine Islands. China,
Malaya, and crossed the equator on a voyage to the South Seas
The Parks returned to San Diego on 12 Iune 1950 and at the out-
break of the Korean War returned to Hawaii and was in stand-by
condition preparing to assist the Naval units in the Far East until
September at which time she was returned to San Diego, Califor-
nia. She spent two months in local exercises operating out of San
Diego, then proceeded to San Francisco for a regular Navy yard
In the early part of 1951 she left the United States for what was
to be her first Far Eastern cruise during the Korean conflict. On
17 March 1951 she ioined Task Force 77 to help screen larger
ships from enemy action and support anti-Communist air opera-
tions off the East coast of North Korea. At Wonsan on 30 April
the ship encountered gunfire from enemy shore batteries for the
first time, and helped silence them after a two hour battle. The
Parks spent a total of 60 days in the enemy harbor of Wonsan
and fired over 12,307 rounds of five-inch proiectiles at the enemy.
This perhaps was one of the longest sieges in U. S. Naval his-
tory. CDR. Iohn Foote relieved as Commanding Officer on the 15th
of December that year. '
Again in May 1952 the Parks left for another cruise in Far
Eastern waters. Her duties on this cruise consisted of shore bom-
bardment off the shores of North Korea, screening units of Task
Force 77, patrol duty in the South China Seas and the Formosa
area, and blockade duty in Wonsan harbor. The Parks spent a
total of 34 days in the blockade of Wonsan harbor, and was not
to arrive back in San Diego until December of 1952.
On 5 Ianuary 1953 she left San Diego to enter the U.S. Naval
Shipyards at I'Iunter's Point, San Francisco, Califomia. On 11 April
while in the yard CDR K. B. Hysong relieved as Captain. In May
she left the shipyards and proceeded to San Diego. During May,
Iune and Iuly she conducted local exercises in the San Diego
The Parks left on August 7, 1953 for another tour of duty in the
Far East arriving in Iapan on 23 September 1953. She operated
from Iapan conducting local exercises until November when she
departed for patrol duty in Formosan waters. The Parks proceeded
to Hong Kong for a brief three day visit on completion of her
Formosan patrol duties. Disaster struck while on patrol duty off
the North Korean coast. The Parks struck an uncharted pinnacle
and was forced to proceed to Sasebo, Iapan for a two month yard
period to repair damages suffered to her propellers and shafts.
On 1 March 1954 the Parks left Far Eastern waters arriving back
in San Diego on 21 March 1954.
- During her stay in the States she participated in local training
exercises operating out of San Diego and was to take part in two
Pacific Fleet training exercises. On the latter of these exercises the
ship proceeded to Seattle, Washington for a three day visit in con-
junction with the Seattle Sea Fair.
The Parks left San Diego for duty in the Far Eastem area on 28
September 1954 arriving in Yokosuka, Iapan on 21 October 1954.
She conducted brief training exercises in the Yokosuka area and
then proceeded to the Philippine Islands anchoring in Subic Bay.
'The ship conducted local training exercises and patrol duties out
of Subic Bay and was forced. on four separate occasions, to leave
the area to avoid typhoons. CDR I. F. Gustaferro relieved as Com-
manding Officer on 2 December 1954.
During the month of Ianuary 1955 the Parks was present in the
1 t 6
. , 1
J A. ... ,
Formosa area during the outbreak of hostilities in the troubled
waters around the Tachen Islands.
She was one of four destroyers present in this area until relieved
by forces of The Seventh Fleet which were to assist the Nationalist
Chinese in the evacuation of their personnel.
After a much needed rest and upkeep period in Subic Bay the
ship proceeded to the British Crown colony of Hong Kong for a
seven day visit. On completion of her visit the ship proceeded to
Sasebo, Iapan operating from there for a short period before pro-
ceeding to Yokosuka, Iapan for upkeep and repairs prior to leav-
ing for the United States.
On 9 April 1955 the Parks returned to San Diego, California
and after a month's leave and upkeep in San Diego she proceeded
to the Long Beach Naval Shipyard for a three months regular
Navy overhaul. On completion of her yard period. the ship re-
ported to Fleet Training Group, San Diego for underway training
in preparation for deployment to the Far East in November 1955.
The Parks departed for WESTPAC on 9 November 1955, made
Singapore and Rangoon two of her ports of call. and operated
with TF 77 until the disaster of 11 March. On that day she was
involved in a collision with the heavy cruiser COLUMBUS. result-
ing in the loss of a 40 foot section of her bow, and the death of
two men. Prompt action by all hands kept the PARKS afloat, and
she was taken into Subic Bay for emergency repairs. There a tem-
porary bow was devised, and the Parks departed for Long Beach
Naval Shipyard, arriving there in early Iune of 1956. The bow of
the deactivated DD76l was taken as a replacement, and in early
August the PARKS reported ready for sea.
In mid-December of 1956, the PARKS preparations for WESTPAC
were interrupted by an emergency deployment during the Mid-
Eastern crisis. She was deployed to Pearl Harbor, returning to
San Diego on 6 December.
The Parks began her ninth WESTPAC cruise on 14 Ianuary
1957. She made Sasebo, Okinawa, Hong Korg, and Pearl Harbor
her ports of call, took part in Operation Beacon Hill and a three
week HUK operation, and operated with TF 77, retuming to San
Diego on 16 Iune. She entered Mare Island Naval Shipyard on
2 August for a maior overhaul, and remained there until late
October. Shortly after her retum to San Diego, the PARKS was
called upon to participate in an unsuccessful Search and Rescue
mission for a downed commercial airliner. Upon her retum she
began preparations for her tenth deployment to WESTPAC.
On 13 February 1958 the PARKS departed on her WESTPAC
cruise. She visited Pearl Harbor, American Samoa. Auckland. New
Zealand, and the Fiiis prior to participa' in three months of
special operations at Eniwetok proving grounds.
From the Eniwetok-Bikini operations the PARKS steamed to
Iapan where she participated in a HUK exercise operating as
plane guard for attack carriers. Ports visited in the last two and
one-half months of the deployment included, Yokosuka. Kobe, and
Beppu, Iapan and Hong Kong.
On Iuly 21, 1958 while operating with TG 77.4 off the coast of
Iapan CDR Emmett M. Compton. USN, was relieved as command-
ing officer of the PARKS by CDR Walter F. V. Bennett USN. The
change of command was unusual in that Captain Bennett came
aboard via helicdpt . on 19 Iuly and CDR. Compton left the ship
in the same manner upon being relieved. Upon completion of her
last commitment in August she retumed to San Diego.
While at San Diego, the PARKS provided various services and
mtinued training all hands in preparation for deployment in 1959.
USS FLOYD B. PARKS had the distinction of
becoming the Flagship for DESTROYER
SOUADRON ONE during the latter part of the
cruise when USS HULL departed for the United
States for final acceptance trials. The Commo-
dore is Captain Iohn L. Foster. The squadron
consists of DESDIV ll and DESDIV l2p eight
ships and their crews totaling more than 1,800
men. The administrative and tactical command
of this group is the job of COMDESRON ONE.
Plans and schedules for movements and
operations must be worked out: training exer-
cises for the ships and their personnel must be
coordinated, morale and welfare must be at-
tended tog and physical and mechanical readi-
ness must he insured. To assist the Commodore
with these functions he has LCDR D. L. Banks,
Staff Operations Officer, LT E. L. St. Ville, Staff
Engineering Officer, LTIG K. W. Larabee, Staff
Captain John L. Foster
LT. E. L. Sf. Ville, Staff Engineering Officer, LCDR. D. L. Banks, Staff Operations
Officer, I.Tig. K W. Larabee, Staff Communication Officer.

A Navy ship has often been called "a floating
city" and this description is a true one. And
like any community of people there must be
organization. We must have administrative
leadership, a court system, a police force, and a
fire department. And what is a community
without churches and hospitals, theaters and
athletic events. Cur floating city must also have
a barber shop, a store and a laundry. But above
all, our ship has people: repairmen and deck
hands, shiptitters and yeomen, siqnalmen and
qunner's mates. The USS FLOYD B. PARKS has
its community orqanized into departments and
divisions. ln the pages which follow, these
divisions and men are pictured and described.

The first impression one receives upon com-
ing aboard the PARKS is that of the exterior
appearance, which is reputed to be among the
finest in the Pacific Fleet. The function of keep-
ing this appearance in top shape is ably per-
formed by the Deck Division. The seamen led
by the boatswain's mates spend many long
hours chipping, painting and cleaning the top-
side spaces. However, replenishment at sea
finds them at all stations transferring ammuni-
tion, fuel and provisions and in port they are
responsible for seeing that the ship is properly
moored or anchored, and that the motor whale-
boat is manned and cared for.
Both underway and in port, men from Deck
Division stand vital watches: messenger, helms-
man, lookout, and supplement repair parties,
fire and rescue parties, landing parties and so
on. The men must be versatile and be prepared
to perform a variety of tasks for they are the
strikers to be of the petty officer rates which
are trained in the technical aspects of the ship's
operations. Sometimes it is not until an impor-
tant inspection is impending or an emergency
arises that their full value is realized but they
can always feel proud that an essential job is

Foxtrot Division is composed of Torpedomen, Fire
Control Technicians and Sonarmen who have differ-
ent hut allied duties. The Torpedomen, who have
fired four of the 2l" torpedoes successfully this year,
are in charge of the depth charges, surface and ASW
torpedoes and their associated equipment. The FT's
are responsible for the accuracy with which the guns
are layed and the speed with which the air and sur-
face targets are acquired. The Sonarmen seek out
the undersea craft which are the chief worry of most
surface sailors - the sulomarine.
Besides standing watches in port and underway,
Foxtrot Division aids the Deck Division in its duties
as well as keeping its own spaces, both external and
internal, in good condition. The many excellent gun-
nery and exercises this year are a credit to
the division and the intense training has made many
a boot into an experienced old-timer by the end of
Cadillac and Shultzie on the 37 Director." "Beware the Mealy Bug!" "Huey, it can't be a seagull!"

"Good shooting, huh?"
Cne of the most important facets in the history of our Navy
has been the ability of our ships to lay accurate, rapid and
continuous fire against the enemy. The nucleus of the team
reql, 4 to attain this ability is the Gunnersmate. During the
'59 cruise the gunners were given ample opportunity to put their
technical knowledge and experience to use. Exercises such as
anti-aircro ', shore bombardment, surface sled, and star shell
shoots were conducted many times calling for a great deal of
preparation and maintenance.
From the Gunnersmates point of view, their greatest achieve-
ment Was reached shortly after being detached from the For-
mosan Patrol. A Nationalist Chinese aircraft towed a sleeve
which on four successive passes was neatly severed from its
cable by direct hits.
All hands were exhilarated by the fine exhibition and have
since recalled the sense of satisfaction over the outstanding
efforts of the Gunnery Division.
It's up here. somewhere.

The Supply Division is made up of six different
Navy rates: Disbursing Clerks, Storekeepers, Com-
misarymen, Ship's Servicemen, Stewards, and Hos-
pital Corpsmen. Personnel in each rate perform
specialized functions aboard ship which provide Well
balanced and prepared meals, clean clothes, pay,
medical care, and tools and working materials.
The Disbursing Clerks handle pay records, adjust-
ing individual changes in pay status, and submitting
monthly returns. The Storekeepers are responsible
for the ordering and distribution of all material and
replacement parts needed in the Ship's Store, pro-
"Hurry with those sandwiches. Cole!"
"Now this sells for the low, low price of only . . . "
visions, and the operating budget. The Ship's Serv-
icemen operate the laundry, Ship's Store and barber-
shop. The Stewards prepare the Officers meals and
keep officer country spaces clean. The Hospital
Corpsmen attend to personnel medical care as Well
as keeping rein on the sanitary condition of the ship
as a Whole.
The Supply Division is charged with a great re-
sponsibility in providing these services that will not
only supply each man's minimum needs but also
contribute to a high state of morale by improving
shipboard standard of living.

"Cl" division is part of the Operations Department
which has been appropriately termed the eyes and
ears of the ship. The division is composed of Elec-
tronic Technicians C?l and Radarmen who generally
are recognized by their deathlike pallor after being
cooped up in dark holes watching PPI scopes and
repairing huge masses of electronic gadgets too corn-
plex to mention.

fast as the news comes in.
Next come the "pencil-pushers," more commonly
referred to as "YO-YO's." From their tiny cubicle
comes the clacking and scratching noises which
keep the ship's administration up to date.
The Quartermasters are the Navigator's assistants
and keep the charts and ship's logs in good order.
Ably assisted by some stout volunteer yeomen, they
are the chroniclers of every movement of the ship.

ln "What did the Shipfitters think

Often called the "shipyard within a ship," R Di-
vision is responsible for maintenance which assures
the ship of fulfilling her mission. The division is al-
ways ready 24 hours a day to replace or repair
defective equipment necessary for the ship's opera-
tion or the crew's habitability, whether it be a
stopped drain, burnt out light bulb, or malfunctioning
The division is composed of three gangs: the Elec-
tricians and IC men, and the Shipfitters and Damage
Control men. The "E" gang maintains electrical
equipment such as switch boards, main generators,
interior communications, alarm systems, gyro, light-
ing circuits and electrical visual communications de-
vices as well as caring for and operating the motion
picture projectors for the morale of the crew.
The "A" gang keeps such auxiliary equipment as
the refrigeration plant, low pressure steam system,
gig engine, anchor windlass and boat winch in top
The "SF" gang keeps the hull and its fittings re-
paired and are the builders or "jack of all trades"
who make anything from storage bins to coffee cup
Although divided into three gangs, the word "co-
operation" expresses the thought and spirit of R Di-
vision among themselves and with the whole ship.
Is that the smallest wrench you could find, Wheeler?
"Lessee, I should be able to get Perry Como on channel 2."
"I think we've found Uranium I ! !"
And when you flip this switch, the ship stops." "Now I see why they call it a dog!" "And to all you people out

Division is subdivided into two separate groups
of personnel-the Machinist's Mates and the Boiler-
men, collectively endeared by term "snipes." The MM's
perform various jobs in the enginerooms which include
maintenance of the turbines, reduction gears, con-
densers, and such related auxiliary equipment in the
engineering spaces as pumps, compressors, evapo-
rators, governors and propeller shafts. As watch stand-
ers, machinist's mates stand pump watches, evaporator
watches, phone talker and throttle watches while the
ship is underway.
The BT's maintain the boilers and fireroom equip-
ment, transfer, test, and take inventory of fuels and
water and serve as members of damage control parties.
Without the long acknowledged proficiency of these
men, the ship would have no illumination, no fresh
water or prepared food, no firing of guns, no electronic
communication and no movement of the ship.

The first stop on our cruise was Pearl Harbor, situated on the island
of Oahu. This island is the famed vacationland of Hawaii, a land of
smiling people, soft breezes, swaying palms, and the gentle, undulat-
ing rhythm of the hula. Here too is Waikiki with its coral reefs and
shimmering blue waters, crowds of sun worshippers, outrigger canoes,
and monumental Diamond Head.
Pearl Harbor is the inlet on the south coast of Oahu, six miles west
of Honolulu, which forms a landlocked harbor used by the United
States as a coaling station and then as a naval base since 1887. There
are few traces now of the tremendous destruction wrought by the
lapanese here on December 7th, l94l, except for the USS ARIZONA
which lies on the bottom of the channel, a memorial to those who gave
their lives for their country on that fateful day.
Hawaii was a fine starting point for our cruise, and our only regret
was that our stay was such a short one. From Pearl Harbor we sailed
to Guam for voyage repairs and a View of the island called the "most
beautiful isle on earth."
The PARKS arrived at Guam fully expecting the island to
be an unexciting and uneventful dot in the Pacific. But after
the swarms of laborers from SRF left the ship in the after-
noon, and before the night shifts began, the liberty parties
streamed ashore to play softball, go bowling and skeet
shooting, and hold some dandy beer busts at exotic CPD Gab
Gab beach. Trips to the colorful southern end of the island
for water skiing were undertaken and drives around the
island were rewarded by scenic views of quiet bays un-
touched by civilization, remindful of the island paradises
that everyone has dreamed about.
The turnout for division softball play was overwhelming
and competition for the beach party given for the winner
was keen. Most arguments were quickly settled when the
beer stacked in ice was unveiled and when Operations
came out on top, everyone agreed that the best team had
Upon leaving Guam the PARKS headed for Kao-hsiung,
Formosa, and duties with the Seventh Fleet on patrol.
The PARKS came to call Kao-hsiung the "in and out"
port, for it seemed as though we never spent much time
there but always stopped on the way to or from patrol
or an operating area.
The name Kao-hsiung goes back many centuries and
originally meant "beat the dog gracefully" or some-
thing to that effect. An interesting fact about Formosa
is that it is said to retain some of the true "Taiyal Men,"
a cannibal race of an ancient strain of Chinese. The
word "Taiyal" means "Real Men." Not knowing how
real they were, none of the crew ventured to find out.
The Formosa Patrol consisted mostly of a battle with
the elements as it rained so much some of the men
claimed they were growing web feet. But our real rea-
son, that of acting as an instrument of United States
Foreign Policy, protecting Formosa from threat of inva-
sion was never overlooked, and it was a worthwhile
experience just to operate in such a focal point of world
tension. Next stop - Subic Bay.
Hong Kong-gateway to the Orient, is a city of con-
trasts where a cosmopolitan atmosphere and elegant
homes seem out of place with the teeming harbors of
junks and sampans, The population of Hong Kong ap-
proaches 21Ai million which is a sizeable increase from
the 500,000 inhabitants the island had in 1941 when the
Iapanese seized it. No one really knows how many peo-
ple live on the junks and sampans choking the harbors
but the count is increased weekly by refugees swarming
over from the Chinese Communist mainland.
Hong Kong, which is actually only the name of the
island whereas the city itself is called Victoria, is a
place of beauty with its breath-taking views from Vic-
toria Peak and Repulse Bay and the grotesque attraction
of Tiger Balm Garden. Fine beaches and swimming re-
sorts provided many hours of enjoyment, followed by a
quiet dinner in any one of the world-famous restaurants
scattered throughout the island. The PARKS found shop-
ping in Hong Kong and Kowloon, across the harbor,
rewarded by purchases of tailor-made clothes, gold
work, jewels, pure silks and intricate lacework-basic
elements of centuries of Oriental trade.
When we put to sea again with our lockers laden with
Oriental treasures and our pockets empty, we said good-
by to an exotic, friendly, and fascinating world of people
living inside the dark shadow of the mountains to the
north - mountains of Red China, and sailed to Tsushima
Straits for ASW operations. Coming soon - our first stop
in Iapan . . . Sasebo.

From ASW operations in Tsushima Straits, scene of
the great naval battle of the Russo-lapanese War,
we sailed to the southernmost of the lapanese
Islands, Kyushu, and the seaport town of Sasebo.
Sasebo Harbor served as a focal point of Naval
operations during the Korean conflict and as a re-
sult some commercialism still prevails but the true
small town atmosphere exists in abundance.
Because of a threatening typhoon, PARKS liberty
was somewhat curtailed and we missed our oppor-
tunity for a tour to Nagasaki, a city renowned for
its recovery after it was atom bombed in World
War ll. A highlight of the visit for many people was
a tortuous taxi ride up the hill overlooking the har-
bor for a SUKI-YAKI dinner at an authentic Iapan-
ese hotel and a view of the port below, framed to
the west by lane Russell Hill. We left Sasebo for
a week's operation with USS HCDRNET once more,
looking forward to our next port of call - Nagoya.

Nagoya was a real test of our grasp of the Iapan-
ese language, for there is no Naval installation there,
and contact with Americans is not as great as at
Sasebo or Yolcosulca. The city is located about five
miles from the seaport proper but the transportation
problem was easily solved by rented buses and a
plentiful supply of taxis. The harbor was a beehive
of activity with merchant vessels of many nations
plying their trade and we saw Norwegians, Chinese,
Canadians, Greeks and Portuguese merchant sailors
mingling with the crowds in the city.
Not far from Nagoya is the town of Gifu, famed for
its trained Cormorants, birds used for fishing by the

Iapanese. These birds, restrained by long leashes,
dive for a small fish peculiar to the area, and drop
their catch in baskets in the fishing boats upon being
Tours through the city included stops at a brewery,
an ancient Iapanese castle, and a trip to the top of
an Eiffel Tower-like television structure for a pano-
ramic view of the city.
After saying "sayonara" to Nagoya, we left for
"Operation Tall Dog" with elements of the Seventh
Fleet. Afterwards, a visit to our last WestPac port
before going home - Yokosuka.

Yokosuka, a typical lapanese seaport with a
slight commercial air provided us with a
glimpse of the beauty tor which lapan is ta-
mous, for a short distance away was Mount
Fuji, a towering volcano that rivals the Rising
Sun as the symbol ot Iapan. Standing guard

Nearby also is the quiet village ot Kamakura,
the home ot the Diabutsu, or Great Buddha, and
many interesting shrines and temples. The cap-
ital city ot Tokyo is only a short train ride away
and no one wishes to miss the thrill ot seeing
the lmperial Palace, the internationally famous
Kokosai Theatre, and the bustling atmosphere
ot one of the three largest cities in the world.

at leaving such a wonderful country, but happy
to be going home to our wives, sweethearts and

The USS FLOYD B. PARKS departed San Diego on April 15,
1959 at 0830 with DESDIV ELEVEN enroute to the Western Pacific
Operating Area via Pearl Harbor. After refueling and two days of
liberty and recreation at Waikiki and Honolulu, the Parks headed
for the island of Guam for an extensive two week Ship Repair
On 18 May the Parks was underway from Apra Harbor for the
Formosa Patrol making a short visit to Buckner Bay, Okinawa for
refueling. The Arduous Patrol commenced 25 May with the PARKS
using Kao-Hsiung, Formosa as her base of operations and only
liberty port. Upon completion of this operation, the division sailed
for Subic Bay, Philippine Islands for a destroyer tender availability
from 22 Iune until 5 Iuly. While in Subic Bay, the PARKS and the
other three ships of DESDIV ELEVEN represented the United States
at the Filipino-American Fiesta celebrating the independence of
both countries on the 4th of Iuly.
In Subic Bay, the PARKS embarked eight Midshipmen from
various NROTC units and the U.S. Naval Academy for participa-
tion in the 1959 Midshipman West Pac Cruise. Upon leaving Subic
Bay, the division ioined the USS HORNET for advanced ASW
exercises which were to keynote the PARKS operation for the re-
mainder of the West Pac deployment. From these operations, the
entire Hunter-Killer Group steamed towards the British Crown
Colony of Hong Kong for a well-deserved period of recreation and
sight-seeing in the "Emerald of the Orient."
On Iuly 23 the PARKS left Hong Kong with the division and ac-
companied the HORNET to Tsushima Straits for coordinated ASW
exercises with units of the Iapanese Maritime Self Defense Forces
and land-based patrol aircraft. After this exercise, the PARKS
pulled into Sasebo, Iapan on August 4th and settled down for an
eight day tender availability.
Typhoon Ellen, however, blew in from the China Sea and cut
down the work period as well as curtailing liberty. Typoon con-
dition of readiness Il was set and maintained for three days.
During this period the embarked Midshipmen departed for the
The PARKS then re-ioined the HORNET for more ASW work
prior to entering Nagoya, Iapan for a week of liberty and recrea-
tion. While in Nagoya preparations were made for "Operation
Tall Dog," which involved a maior portion of the units of the
Seventh Fleet. The exercise provided valuable training under
simulated war-time conditions and was the operational highlight
of the Cruise.
Alter a two week Ship Repair Facility availability at Yokosuka,
Iapan, the PARKS was scheduled to depart with DESDIV ELEVEN
on September 'llth for San Diego, but world tension over the in-
vasion of Laos by the Communists caused the division's tour to be
extended in WestPac, and the ship left Yokosuka for Subic Bay
instead. Shortly after passing south of Formosa and out-running
Typhoon Sarah, the division ioined with attack aircraft carrier
HANCOCK for operations in the South China Sea before entering
Subic Bay September 19. On September 21 the PARKS headed
home via Guam and Pearl Harbor. San Diego was truly a wel-
