u.s.s. FLOYD B-. QARK5 CDD,ss47
To the Officers and Men of USS FLOYD B. PARKS
I am sure that this Cruise Book, October l966 to April 1967,
will recall to each of you many memories of where we went and what
we did - of the long periods at sea, of the training exercises and
drills, of night refueling, of unexpected General Quarters, of the
rough, cold, gray sea and the sunlit Inland Sea, of the ports we
visited and the sights we saw, of beach parties and softball games
and, finally, of the joy of coming home. You will also remember
that our duties on this cruise were not always exciting and in many
respects required us not so much to act as to be ready to act - at -
any time. It is frequently more difficult to stay alert and ready
for days and weeks than it is actually to fight. And yet, we were
ready and we did stay alert. Every job was done, every order carried
out - prom tly and efficiently. You measured up in every respect.
No Commanding Officer could have asked for more and to each of you
I offer my most sincere thanks.
I hope that this book will also bring to each of you that warm
satisfaction and quiet pride which is yours not only for a job well I
done but also for having served your country in a time of need.
In these days many forget that serving one's country is a great
privilege and that the right question continues to be not what can
my country do for me but rather what can I do for my country. It is
because Americans like you have not forgotten this that our country
God bless you.
