I978 . . . .let aircraft roar overhead, electronics guide and
inform the fleet, missiles stand ready . . . The United States
Navy Mediterranean Fleet is once more asea, as it has been
every year for over thirty years. Modern, utilizing the newest
technology, it is a Navy in transition from the frams and cruisers
of the post'WWll era, to the VSTOL carriers and Spruance class
destroyers of the I980's.
Suddenly the booming sound of rolling thunder is heard
across the water. The U55 Forrest Sherman has fired another

barrage of rounds from her
of the fastest ships in the fleet, the 4000 ton Forrest Sherman is
making her first Med. cruise in over two years.
It has been a difficult road for her crew, but the sight and
sound of her three big guns firing is proof that Navy tradition
dies hard. Even at the ed f h
ge o t e 80's, one of the last Great
Gunships still survives.

It was a long hard road to February 8, I979. That was
the day the Forrest 5herman's 78-79 Med cruise officially
ended. What got us there was teamwork. The ability of three
hundred individuals to function as one.
This book is dedicated to the crew which has
demonstrated teamwork in countless ways and made the
Forrest Sherman one of the best ships in the Navy.
This 23 year old destroyer is 4I8 feet long and
displaces more than 4000 tons. She was built in Bath, Maine
in I953 and christened by Mrs. Forrest P. Sherman, wife of
the late Admiral.
The first crew to board the Forrest Sherman in l955
must have had the same spirit of teamwork as well as every
crew since then. That is why the ship has proven herself
time and time again.

When first reporting aboard, he had several
objectives in mind for the ship and crew. These were a
clean ship, good reputation, and that we make all of
our commitments. After I7 months on the Sherman he
believes these obiectives have been met. From winning
the departmental awards to the successful
Mediterranean cruise, LCDR Weaver states the

During the seven months the Forrest Sherman
was in the Med., she visited quite a few good ports.
But, a lot of time was spent at sea. From the back
breaking work of refueling to the restful hours spent
lying in the sun, sea time was spent in different
As you can see by these pictures there were a
wide variety of things to see and do at sea. Off the
coast of Charleston dolphins play alongside the ship
and provide a break in the hectic day's work.
The sea can be as gentle as a waterbed or as
rough and mighty as a storm as the picture shows. A
wave or "greenie" as they are called breaks over the
bow on our return trip to the States.
On 22 August I978 the Forrest Sherman
Med-moored in Naples Harbor for a tender
availability with the U55 Piedmont. Though the work
schedule was quite demanding, many members of the
crew had the opportunity to take advantage of the
tours available and see some fascinating sights.
The best enjoyed tours were those to Rome,
Capri, Pompey, and Sorrento. Those who toured
Rome during the first weekend in September were
afforded the exciting opportunity of seeing the
coronation of Pope John Paul l.
Overall the restaurants were quite inexpensive
and the food was very good.
Naples is a large and busy city. Shopping areas
are numerous and offer a wide variety of art work.
leather goods, clothing, and cameos and other types
The Navy also has a large recreation area in
Naples called Carney Park. This was the site for
several Ship's picnics and sporting events such as
softball games. It might be interesting to note that
the entire park is located inside the remains of an
On 7 August Forrest Sherman anchored off
the coast of Calvi, Corisca. This picturesque
town was quite overrun with tourists from all
over the world. The luxurious sailboats and
yachts were examples of the wealth that was
vacationing on the island. For us the prices
were very high.
What occupied our liberty time there? The
beautiful beaches and their scantly clothed
female inhabitants. Breathtaking!
For two days of our visit heavy weather
and high winds hampered the boats on their
runs to the beach. Several crewmembers were
stranded overnight and had to rough it out in
the open due to lack of rooms in any hotel.
Besides, nobody could afford a hotel room
anyway. Thanks to the French Foreign Legion
the stranded people got a warm breakfast the

Have you ever found yourself wondering what it must
be like to live in a place with no air pollution or cars?
Sounds too good to be true? Well the place does exist.
Venice, Italy is just that place. During the two weeks
Forrest Sherman was there it seemed as though the wheel
had not been discovered there. Liberty was outstanding.
The entire city is a maze of canals and waterways
traveled by all types of boats and gondolas.
In the center of town is San Marco Square. Always
alive with entertainment, the square seemed to be the
main meeting place of tour groups and people just
looking for fun and excitement.

where Snowflake the world's only

Winery tours and Spainish bar-b-ques
provided many hours of enjoyment.
Barcelona also had miles of subway
service which made travelling much
easier and cheaper.

Barcelona has to be the food. Many
crew members could be found literally
stuffing themselves with dishes such as
spaghetti or Venitian rice. MMM.

While in Venice, Italy the crew decided that a boxing tournament
was just the thing to relieve the homesickness that was spreading fast.
At the time no one realized that the members of the crew participating
were so good. What resulted was a tournament of high caliber fun.
From the first round of fight number one to the last punch of the
day, everyone enjoyed the excitement and surprises.

Keeping up with Navy formalities was even enforced in the
Med. Inspections were not too frequent but, alas. they did
happen. Days of preparation and worrying were eased though.
by an early liberty call after an inspection.
Also in keeping up with advancements, were award
ceremonies. The Captain, as you can see, really enjoys handing
out advancements and other awards. Everyone is proud to see
their buddies making rate.

Ghosts and goblins abound on this day and the Forrest
Sherman 's decks were no exception. From Superman to the
Fonz. we had a big turnout of all sorts of halloween
One of the big hits was Robbie the Robot. Complete with
a pre-recorded voice and lighted eyes, this automation from
the future graced the ship's decks and entertained everyone-
What a bunch. Standing in the "line up" they looked like
something from a crazy rewrite of "The Wizard of Oz".

Got nothing better to do on a lazy afternoon at sea? Have
a picnic. It's easier than it seems. Just get a bowl of laughter.
three hundred hungry sailors, and a couple of cooks and you
have what you need. Just for fun you can throw in some extras
like an occasional wave over the deck or general quarters but
those are optional.
Picnics are definitely fun but after all the excitement and
eating did you ever wonder . . . Who cleans up that awful mess?

"Now on the Forrest Sherman, Liberty Call.
Liberty Call." The mad rush to the brow is on.
Hundreds of feel pound towards the nearest
tavern or park. The day's work is completely
forgotten and the night's fun is planned out.
While in the Med, the crew enjoyed this
sacred time on the beach in many different
ports, but everyone knew down inside that the
words liberty call wouldn't sound right until we
came back home.

While deployed, the ship had to refuel and take on supplies every
three days or so. This was accomplished either by ship or helicopter.
These next four pages illustrate a few of the scenes of this evolution.
Hard work and 'constant alertness to danger leaves everyone
exhausted afterwards but that's just part of being a sailor.
