Lead ship of her class and the first of the post- World War ll destroyers, she was named after Admiral Forrest Percival Sherman, a distinguished World War Il flag officer and former 'Chief -of Naval Oper- ations.She was built by Bath lron Works Corporation, Bath, Maine, commissioned at the Boston Naval Shipyard, and joined the fleet at flagship of De- stroyer Squadron Ten in Newport, Rhode Island. FORREST SHERMAN had gone through a wide variety of assignments and accomplishments by I979, including the l957 Inauguration of President Eisenhower, circumnavigation of the globe in l958, participation. in the opening ceremonies for the Saint Lawrence Seaway in l959, as well as more business-like operationsduring crises in Lebanon, Venezuela, and Taiwan.After a long upward struggle to bring her back up to her full capabilities, she completed her l8th major overseas deployment in the early months of I979, earning the respect of far newer ships with her reliability and competitive spirit. I She, was an old ship, the "Last of the Great Gunships," but she wasn't through yet, not by a long shot . . . And on March l2th, I979 came a new Captain, to add a few new chapters to her life story. V nf,-..g Huw' , .J CAPTAIN A.. o H 3 "I had already heard how good the ship was," noted Comnander A. james Booth when speaking of his initial impressions Of FORREST SHERMAN, "and I was lust happy to be onboard." I It was the latest, and perhaps biggest step for Captain Booth in. his long association with the destroyer navy. HIS career began with a tour of duty on the destroyer tender YOSEl"1lTE CAD-l9j, and subsequent tours included I-IARLAN DICKSON CDD-7085, ENGLAND CDLG-225, and as Executive Officer of JOSEPH HEWES CFF-l078J. His shore and staff duty include an assignment as Weapons Instructor at the U,S, Naval Destroyer School in Newport, Rhode Island, a tour as Chief Staff Officer of Destroyer Squadron FOUR, and just prior to taking command of FORREST SHERMAN he was the Ordnance Officer at the Naval Weapons Station, Yorktown, Val "I wouldn't have any other" Captain Booth said of the SHERMAN. "She has an extremely military, extremely professional crew, with superb morale and camaraderie. She's the best ship in the Navy." - Captain Booth's aspirations for the FORREST SHERMAN? "I wanted to contribute to enhancing the fine reputation she already had." . . I. . . . Captain Booth went on to do just that. I p x V X ..

"The thing I remembered about her then was how clean and sharp she'd looked. Now I report on board ten years later, and she looks just as good!" Besides extensive experience in mine war- fare, XO West's previous destroyer tours included Gunnery Officer on HUGH PURVIS CDD-7093 and Chief Engineer On SAMUEL B. ROBERTS CDD-8231. What ingredients did he hope to add to FORREST SHERMAN? "A little imagination, a sense of humor, and a visionary trust."

Operating with other navies is an established method forthe United States to strengthen ties with other nations, and in November of I979 FORREST SHERMAN found herself 'involved in just such an exercise with Canadian naval units off the coast of Nova Scotia. The exercises themselves were breathtaking--in more ways than one-- but FORREST SHERMAN found time to celebrate her 24th birthday, participate in a pass-and-review with the Canadian Navy where she showed a little razzle-dazzle of her own, and spend several delightful days in Halifax, Nova Scotia. l l I Be on the lookout for a large flock of Canadian Geese!!

Then on February 28th came the christening of the son of Ensign Bob Diamond and his wife Gwen, jeffrey james Qbeftter known as "Studs"j. Both ceremonies were attended by Captain Booth and his family as well as various crewmembers. Along with FORREST SHERMAN they wished both youngsters and parents the best of luck and a long and happy future. A VISIT FROM VICE ADMIRAL STOCKDALE l DC r ln late I979 COMNAVSURFLANT CCommander Naval Surface Forces, Atlanticj came out with his annual list of awards for excellence. Once again FORREST SHERMAN's name appeared several times on the list, winning awards in Engineering, Damage Control and Anti-Submarine Warfare. The competition for these awards was, as always, fierce, and FORREST SHERMAN made its mark among all surface ships on the East Coast, again as always. ' 1 THE WlNNERS! E l It was a very good year, iif READEX 2-80 After an unusually long two month stay in Charleston, this exercise provided FORREST SHERMAN with a chance to get back to the joys of being underway, and to visit such Caribbean hot spots as Roosevelt Roads, Puerto Rico, Roosevelt Roads, Puerto Rico, Roosevelt Roads, Puerto Rico, andqNassau, Bahamas.

On the morning of 6 April l98O FORREST SHERMAN came out of the Red Sea at its southern end and entered the nearby port of Djibouti This was the crew's first good look at a Middle Eastern port, and a hini of things to come on the deployment, ln the next few months Djibouti would virtually become our "homeport" in the Middle East, and while there the crew would not only meet the natives but also sailors of the French Navy--as well as a priceless opportunity to meet with soldiers of the Foreign Legion, with whom FORREST SHERMAN becamefast friends. From Djibouti FORREST SHERMAN Set forth on the patrols and surveillance operations of its deployment, visiting a number of other ports. In Bahrain the -Suqq provided the best opportunity to buy Arab' souvenirs. In Muscat the ship had a great view of a lot of big rocksfln Port Sudan the crew visited the century-old ruins of Suakin and became friendly with the camels. In Mombasa the crew visited the animal pre- serve and had the time of their lives. And- on 7 july FORREST SHERMAN vlsited Djibouti yet again, taking on fuel and stores before entering the southern end of the Red Sea, heading out. felled-l gel Let's see . . . you say you'lI give me a dozen T-shirts, 3 tapestries, and 3 goat for my gig?

Rolling dice, of course i A Equator IINEXTVI lt's all really very simple: There's these guys called Shellbacks, see, who have already crossed the equator, and when the time draws near for the ship to reach the equator they round up all the guys who haven't crossed the equator yet Cthese guys are called Pollywogsj, and boy, do THEY'get it!! I mean, the Shellbacks dress up like refugees from an Errol Flynn pirate movie, and they drag out the poor Pollywogs and make them do all sorts of silly things that give the Iaundrymen fits afterwards. Don't ask exactly what those things are, you really don't want to know. Anyway, after they've done these things to the Polly- wogs that I don't want to mention, they haul the bedraggled Pollywog before King Neptune's Court, where some particularly nasty Shellback comes out with this charge sheet against the Pollywog, and before you know it . . . Actually, l'm not supposed to tell you what comes next. lt's a secret. But don't get too upset about itg I'm sure you'll find out someday what goes on at one of these things. Like, for instance, the next time the naval ship you're on happens to cross the equator . . . ' BAT-WOG ' Why can't l be the Queen?

Maybe it was because there weren't nearly as many ships in port this time, resulting in far more of the crew being allowed to go ashore. Or maybe it was because FORREST SHERMAN was only in port for two days this time, leaving on the evening of the second day.
