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 is great. God bless you. Sincerely, 3 A 77'JIz!m G. NORTON NEELY in. U.S.S. FLOYD B. PARKS lDD 884i SHIP' HI ToRY The FLOYD B. PARKS is a Gearing class Destroyer, built by the Consolidated Steel Corporation, at Orange, Texas, on the banks of the Sabine River. Mrs. Floyd B. Parks, the widow of the late Major, sponsored the ship at launching on March 31, 1945. After Commissioning and shakedown cruise, the ship was assigned to the Pacific Fleet and proceeded to San Diego, California, which has been her home port throughout her 22 years of service. Although built too late to take part in World War H, PARKS participated in extensive action during the Korean Conflict as a unit of Task Force 77. pHere, her assignment was to screen carriers against enemy action and to suppOrf anti-Communist air operations off the east coast of North Korea. During this time FLOYD B. PARKS participated in one of the longest sieges in U. S. Naval History, over sixty days in the enemy harbor of Wonsan, firing over twelve thousand rounds of ammunition at the enemy installations. ln 1955, FLOYD B. PARKS was on duty in the Western Pacific during the outbreak of hostilities in the Tachen Island area. She was one of four destroyers present which assisted the Nationalist Chinese in the evacuation of this troubled area. The Laotian Crisis of 1959 found PARKS on the spot and ready with a show of force. In addition to this action, the ship also participated in one of the early experimental cold weather exercises, Microwex, in the Bering Sea and has been an active participant in the Eniwetok-Bikini Atomic Testing Operations. PARKS has made sixteen WESTPAC cruises including two cruises to the Tonkin Gulf, South China Sea area in support of U. S. Forces in Viet Nam. THE NAME FLOYD B. PARKS USS FLOYD B. PARKS is named in honor of Major Floyd Bruce Parks, USMC, a Marine Aviator reported missing in action on 4 I une 1942, in defense of Midway Island against the assaults of the Japanese Navy. Major Parks, born in Salisbury Missouri, was enlisted in the Navy for two years prior to his appointment to the United States Naval Academy in I une 1930. He was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the U. S. Marine Corps on 31 May 1934 and was promoted to Major less than a month be- fore the action at Midway. MAJ OR PARKS was awarded the Navy Cross, Special Letter of Commendation from the Secretary of the Navy, the Purple Heart, President- ial Unit Citation, American Defense Service Medal and Asiatic-Pacific Area Campaign Medal. -1 COMMANDI G OFFIC R X f QQMM1 X ff X WZ -AWK CDR G.M.

And like any commu- nity 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 "11- churches and hospitals, theaters and athletic events. Our floating city must also have a barber shop, a store and a laundry. But above all, our ship has people : repairmen and deck hands, shipfitters and yeomen, signalmen and gunner's mates. The USS FLUYD B. PARKS has its community organized into departments and divisions. In the pages which follow, these divisions and men are pictured and described. ,l J i Cv .'3??f"""?'7"if'r" 1 N- "" ' 'S 129.145-.-:Sf 4 gywis '3 F First Row: MM3 J.T. Ludwig, SN W.J. Walker, FN R.C.

"OC" DIVISION SAR SOUTH CHINA SEA 4'Pilot down V' The request for aid goes out and on the PARKS there's a scramble making preparations to pick up the pilot. Combat CCombat Information Centerl swings into action controlling the rescue forces. What is the primary re- quirement for this job. . . good communications! Down in Radio Central this alarm doesn't raise a ripple of excitement because the "Communications Machinen is X I ,ss J running like a well oiled precision instrument. Due to the able leadership of RMI KEITH and his more than able assistants RM1 MUNLEY and RMI PORTER, everything is in readiness and the voice of command and control dominates the - the scene. The "honchos" and their strikers have a complete knowledge and un- 5 lil derstanding of the mystic realm of good communications, and are always ready for the unexpected. As in all of Naval Communications, peace time or an actual emer- gency, our communications always runs on a war time footing so that there is no need for a transition period. It is a well known fact throughout the fleet that corny- munications "par excellencew is routine operation for the "PARKS Communicators . An integral part of this communications team is the Signal Gang under the outstanding leadership of SMC GLINN and SM1 DOHME. They provide visual eyes for the command. During tactical maneuvers when radio silence is imposed the safety and security of the ship depend upon an efficient and well trained signal crew. 0 The Ships Office under YNC BRANTLEY and PN1 HALL performs the 6 enormous task of providing all the administrative detail so vital to an efhcientll' running ship. Their jobs are many and oftentimes monotonous but are always handled in the finest PARKS tradition. The most popular men in the division and probably the entire ship are PC3 MYERS and PCSN SUMMITT. "Mail Call" is the most anxiously awaited WOfd on the ship. Our regular mail service contributes much to the PARKS morale. ' Completing the OC division are the Quatermasters under the leadership of QM1 CRABTREE. Keeping the ship's charts up to date and expertly plotting her course, they keep us clear of any dangerous waters. SX xv, .l-l....E. MP .

Nerve Center Operators The nerve center of the PARKS is the Combat Information Center manned by the Radarmen of OI Division. The Ship's operations are con- trolled from combat. Under the capable leadership of RDC PRITCHARD and RDI STONE With assistance from RDI BILLINGSLEY and RDI BURGESS, the Radarmen operate a vast assortment of electronics gear with which they collect and report information on unidentified and friendly surface and air contacts. During search and rescus evolutions they control helicopters, guiding them to downed pilots. In case of enemy air attack the Radarmen are ready to control our ovvn fighters to intercept these hos- tile invaders. The Radarmen also expertly man the ship's electronic count- ermeasures equipment to discover the presence of other forces. The Electronic Technicians, led by ETI KNIGHT, form the other important half of the OI Division. To them falls the responsibility for maintaining and repairing the vast, complex electronics systems aboard the PARKS. This is a tremendous job and requires all their skill, talent and initiative for long hours. The PARKS relies on the outstanding job done by the ET's to meet her operational commitments.

Through the coordinated efforts of the SONARMEN, ASROC GUNNER'S MATES, TORPEDOMEN'S MATES AND DASH person- nel Parks is able to seek out and destroy enemy submarines. ASW is a primary mission of the Parks and a vital necessity in enabling the United States to maintain control of the seas. The SONARMEN, under the leadership of SONARMAN CHIEF ':DUTCH" LOHR, are 13 highly trained men responsible for detecting, clas- sifying, and tracking submerged contacts which may pose a threat to naval shipping. At sea these men maintain an around the clock watch of the undersea environment using SONAR CSound Navi- gation and Rangingj equipment. The ASROC GUNNER'S MATES, led by GM- Gl DIXON consist of 6 men responsible for the arming, launching, and detonation of an Anti-Sub- marine Rocket CASROCD. This weapon system possesses a long range standoff capability combined with very high target kill probability. It is highly effective in destroying enemy submarines. Further- more, the ASROC GM's are responsible for main- taining a daily, year round security watch to safe- guard Parks' nuclear capability. The TORPEDOMEN'S MATES of the Parks, under the leadership of TM3 STEWART, protect her from close-in surprise attacks by enemy sub- marines. Calling upon their knowledge and timely action, this ship is able to launch urgent attacks against hostile submarines by firing tube-launched torpedoes. The Drone Anti-Submarine Helicopter CDASHD CTCVY, led by ATI CLUEN, consists of 6 men skil- led in maintaining and launching the DASH, a remotely controlled drone helo. This weapon sys- tem.1s designed to carry torpedoes over long ranges aff hlgh speeds for ultimate release over the posi- tion of a submerged enemy submarine. This crew was also among the Hrst to use several new tech- Hlques designed to expand our capability for res- cuing downed pilots.

"WD" DIVISION As each and every visitor comes aboard the Floyd B. Parks, his first impression of the ship is created by the smart appearance of the exterior spaces. The men of the Deck Division value the Parks' traditional reputation as one of the Pacific Fleet's finest. Led by Boatswain Mate First MCCOURT who is ably assisted by BM2 BAU- MEISTER and BM3 AMANTE. they maintain this tra- dition through many long hours of chipping, painting, and cleaning top side spaces. As the backbone of the Special Sea and Anchor Detail, these men carry out all aspects of mooring and anchor- ing. In addition, theirs is the responsibility of manning and caring for the Motor Whale Boat. Replenishment at sea finds the men of WD manning the forward, amidships, and after stations and perform- ing a variety of tasks, including transferring fuel, am- munition, and provisions. Both underway and in-port, the men from the Deck Division stand vital watches as Helmsman, Messenger, Lookout and Sentry. Inaddition, these men suppliment repair parties, gun crews, fire, and rescue parties, helo refueling details, and landing parties. With versatility as WD,s keynote, these men must be prepared to perform an enormous variety of tasks. The Deck Divisionis full valve is seldom realized until an important inspection is pending or an emergency arises.

Taylor Riley Halstead Whitman III Son of LTJG R.H. Whitman II Gregory William Lohr Son of STC W.S. Lohr EW DDITIO A Century Ago men were follow- ing with bated breath the march of Napoleon, and waiting with feverish impatience for news of the wars. And all the while, in their own homes, babies were being born. 4'But who could think about babies? Everybody was thinking about bat- tles. mln one year, midway between Trafalgar and Waterloo, there stole into the world a host of heroes. Gladstone was born in Liverpool, Tennyson at the Somersby Rectory, and Oliver Wendell Holmes in Mas- sachusetts, and the very same day of that same year, Abraham Lincoln drew his first breath in old Kentucky. Music was enriched by the advent of Felix Mendelssohn at Hamburg. "But nobody thought of babies: everybody was thinking of battles. Yet which of the battles of 1890 mat- tered more than the babies of 1809? We fancy that God can only manage His world with big battalions, when all the time he is doing it by beauti- ful babies. When a wrong wants righting, or a truth wants preaching, or a continent wants opening, God sends a baby into the world to do it." And that,s the truth. Ever since the world began that has been the rule of things. From the time that Iochebed hid her baby Moses among the rushes by the river, it has been the same. In anticipation of crises that God knew the muddled minds of men would bring about, just a little while before He has sent a tiny baby into some humble home, and there, within the shadow of a lowly motherls love, He has prepared Himself a man to clear away the clouds and lighten the darkness.

This island is the famed vacationland of smiling people, soft breezes, swaying palms, and the gentle, undulating rhythm of the hula. Here too is Waikiki With its coral reefs and shimmering blue Waters, crowds of sun Wor- shippers, 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 Japanese here on December 7th, 1941, except for the USS ARIZONA which lies on the bot- tom of the channel, a memorial to those who gave their lives for their country on that fateful day. Blow hole Typical street scene A favorite pastime 1026 Kang Hong Kong from Victoria Park Aberdeen A shoppers paradise - HONG KONG-gateway to the Orient, is a city of contrasts where a cosmopolitan atmosphere and elegant homes seem out of place with the teeming harbors of junks and sampans. The population of HONG KONG approaches Zlfg million which is a sizeable increase from the 500,000 inhabitants the island had in 1941 when the Japanese 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 the name of only the island whereas the city itself is called Victoria, is a place of beauty with its breath taking views from Victoria Peak and Repulse Bay. The grotesque attraction of Tiger Balm Garden, Fine beaches and swimming resorts provided many hours of enjoyment for the crew. An un- forgetable meal may be had in any one of the world- famous restaurants scattered throughout the island. The PARKS found shopping in HONG KONG and KOW- LOON across the harbor rewarded by purchases of tailor-made clothes, gold work, jewels, pure silks and intricate lacework-basic elements of centuries of Oriental tarde. When we set 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 Communist China.

The capital city of Tokyo is only a short train ride away and one can never forget the thrill of seeing the Imperial Palace, the internation- ally famous Kokusai Theatre, and the bustling atmos- phere of the largest city in the world. We were fortunate enough to visit Yokosuka twice, leaving the second time we left with mixed emotions : sad at leaving such a wonderful country, but happy to be going home to our wives, Sweethearts and loved ones.

Near Kobe was the port of Hyogo, a town of remote antiquity and at one time the seat of the govenment in the 12th century. As a trad- ing port, Hyogo continued to prosper, and ships bound for Osaka made it a port of call. In 1788 it hae a population of 19,580 and this number had considerably increased by the time the port of Kobe was opened to foreign trade in 1868. As the years passed, Kobe absorbed I-Iyogo. In 1874 a railway between Kobe and Osaka, was opened, followed by construction of a railway connecting Kobe with Shimonoseki. The Sino-Japanese War C1894 to 18955 and the Russo-Japanese War C1904 to 19055 added greatly to the prosperity of the port. With the temporary collapse of the Yokohama silk trade after the great earthquake of 1921 much of the country's silk business was diverted to Kobe, and silk is still a prominent article of export. During World War II, Kobe underwent heavy and relentless air raids. As a result, 61M of its city area was severely devas- tated. Since 1945 nearly all of the area has been rehabilitated. During the period 1945-1951, Kobe greatly expanded by absorb- ing fifteen neighboring towns and villages into the municipality. Kobe, today covering a vast area of 161.5 square miles, is the sixth largest city of Japan with a population of 1,119,667 C1 January 1961 censusj. Its port ranks first in the country. The city of Kobe is located on the north shore of Osaka Bay in central Honshu. It serves not only as the major port of the Kansai or Kinki District, but also as the eastern gateway to the Inland Sea. It is about fifteen miles west of the center of Osaka. About fifty miles to the northeast is Kyoto, the former Imperial capital and third city in Japan. The port of Kobe, one of the finest ports in the world, plays an important role in the promotion of Japan's foreign and tourist trade. It boasts of good harbor facilities for both ocean-going and coastal ships. Everyone seems to be on an excursion Helping Mama-san S"""' Entrance to a beautiful shrine 66 ' 77 A young Samurai ! Malko 5145520 T Sasebo Nagasaki : J urokuban-kan The city of Sasebo, with its beautiful, sheltered har- bor located on the rim of northern Asia, has been a Navy port since 1890 when the Emperor Meiji formally dedi- cated it as a station of the Imperial Japanese Navy. Sasebo first achieved fame in 1904 as the port from which Admiral Heihachiro Togo led the Imperial Japa- nese Navy to nearby Tsushima Straits and swept the Russian Imperial Navy from the seas. This single bold stroke established J apan's reputation as the leading naval power of Asia. A cloak of secrecy covered the port from the mid 1930s until the end of World War II, while it was transformed into a supersecret base from which mighty battleships like YAMATO and MUSASHI slipped out to sea. It is also popularly believed that Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto planned the attack on Pearl Harbor in Suite A of what is now the officer's Town Club. Once again Sasebo became an important naval base at the outbreak of the Korean War in 1950. By 1953, US, 4 Sofuku-ji Temple Fleet Activities was a busy complex of 143 officers, 1,700 enlisted, and 5,800 Japanese employees all involved in the massive operations in Korea. The sudden influx of soldiers was a great boon to the local marchants, with 8,000-12,000 men on liberty every night. Today, Sasebo upholds its naval traditions as an im- portant base for both the U.S. Seventh Fleet and the Japan Maritime Self Defense Force. Various facilities of the port are shared in an atmesphere of great coopefa' tion. Thus the city has become a cornerstone of this same spirit that exists between the nations of Japan and America. Many PARKS sailors were fortunate to be able to take a tour of Nagasaki, one of the two Japanese cities 011 which the atom bomb was dropped during World WHT II. This city has been rebuilt as a monument t0 Peace and the peaceful use of atomic energy. Places of interest were the Peace-Monument, Madame Butterflyis Home and the oldest Catholic Church in Japan. v v 1 l I 1 i Nagasaki : Glover Mansion .
