JOHNSON United States Novy Admiral Johnson was born in Big Bend, Louisiana in 1906 end entered the U. S. Naval Academy m 1925. His selection for the rank of Rear Admiral was approved by the President in 1955. Upon graduation he served on the USS Tennessee, and the USS West Virginia. Once designated a Naval Aviator, he served on the USS Salt Lake City, and then returned to NAS Pensacola, Florida as an instructor. He later served aboard the USS Enterprise with Patrol Squadron 12; in the Navy Department, and then as COMCARAIRGROUP 2. On [the USS Hornet he was Air Officer and the Executive Officer. ' Admiral Johnson is entitled to a Ribbon for the Presi- dential Unit Citation awarded the USS Hornet for " extraordi- nary heroism in action against enemy Japanese forces. " In the Navy Department, he served with Commander in Chief, U. S. Fleet, with Chief of Naval Operations, and in the Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. His next duty was Avi- ation Operations Officer on the Staff of Command SECOND Task Fleet. In 1955 he had charge of fitting out the USS Forrestal, and became her first Commanding Officer at commissioning. He commanded the Forrestal until May, 1956, when he was ordered to duty as Director of the Long Range Objectives Group, Office of the Chief of Naval Operations. On Decem- ber 2, ' 1958, he relieved Admiral Griffin as COMCARDIV 4, and Commander Task Force 60. Admiral Johnson and his family currently reside m Falls Church, Virginia. CAPTAIN JOSEPH D. BLACK United Stotes Navy The reporting for duty as Chief of Staff for Commander Carrier Division FOUR starts on eleventh year of carrier based operations for Captain Black. Most of these operational fly- ing years have been in fighter squadrons and as an air group commander Other shipboard duties hove included tours as executive officer of a CVE and of the CORAL SEA (CVA 43 ) , command of the CURRITUCK (AV 7) and the HANCOCK (CVA 19). VVESPAC and Mediterranean cruises have been in equal numbers. Duties ashore have included tours on the Joint Staff of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and as Director of Air Warfare in OPNAV. The family consists of wife, the former Jane Morris of Pasadena, California, eleven year old Celio, a son Gregory who graduated from the Naval Academy in 1955 and was a Navy jet pilot, and daughter Cheron married to LT W. W. Hargrove, a Crusader pilot in VF193 on this cruise of the FORRESTAL. Naval aviation has ruled the family fortunes since 1932 when Captain Block entered Pensacola as a stu- dent aviator.

CHARBONNET, JR., USN Commander Charbonnet, a graduate of the Naval Academy, entered flight training in 1943, and was in command of CVEG-24 aboard the SANTEE in the Pacific at the end of WW II. He served as head of the Carrier Aircraft Section of Flight Test, where he flight tested several aircraft now aboard the FORRESTAL with CVG-10 Following this, he commanded CA o_» during a Sixth Fleet deployment with the USS INTREPID. The Exec ' s home is in Virginia Beach, Virginia. CDR. HEISHMAN entered the Navy in September 1941 after at- tending Washington State College. He received his wings at Corpus Christi, Texas in June 1942. Dur- ing World War II he served with Torpedo Squadron TWELVE aboard the old SARATOGA and participat- ed in the Solomons, Gilbert and Marshall campaigns. Subsequent assignments included tours with Torpedo Squadron 98, Torpedo Squadron 18, the Staff, ComFair- Quonset, General Line School, Ad- vanced Training Command, USS TARAWA, OPNAV and the Naval War College His assignment prior to the FORRESTAL was that of Commanding Officer of Attack Squadron EIGHTY-FIVE at Oceana, Virginia. AIR CDR JACK C. HEISHMAN, USN CDR ROBERT S. ADAMS, USN Cdr Adams graduated in June, 1942 from the Naval Academy, and served two years in destroyers in WW II before entering flight training. A Naval Aviator in ' 45, he has been in Fighter Squadrons ever since, and last commanded VF 103, now aboard the Forrestal. Between sea duties, Cdr Adams was once instructor at the Naval Academy, and twice had duty at the Naval Air Test Center, Potuxent Riv- er, Maryland. This man retrieving a bridle on a " horn " of the ship is typical of men in the Air De- partment who work hard before, during and after every Forrestal launch and recovery. The spacious flight and hangar decks of the Forrestal might well be compared to a vast, 3-dimensional football field. The men in various colored jerseys, giving signals, running, strain- ing and pushing are the players; while Flight Deck Control and Hangar Deck Control — one above the other — ore the coordinated coaches of the teem. Space and Time are the dimen- sions of the gome: Space, because there must be a place and path for every plane; and Time, because the Air Department works against a continuous set of deadlines, geared to the tempo of launch and recovery. Close teamwork is a fact in accomplishing the necessary fluidity of a super carrier ' s air operations. From the outset, the Air Department plays its role in this huge effort, for in Pri- mary Fly Control, or " Pri-Fly " , orders ore given to initiate the actual launches and recovery of Forrestal ' s many aircraft. Pri-Fly is a real nerve center, linked directly to each aircraft and to various parts of the ship by a team of telephone talkers and intercom systems. For the jets to leave the ship. Air Department men actuate the powerful steam catapults which hurl the plane into the air at speeds above 130 MPH. At recovery time, other men operate the arresting gear, and then move the recovered aircraft to predetermined spots on the flight or hangar decks for servicing. There red-shirted fuel crews come into play and top off the tanks for the next flight. Extremes of wind and weather make life on the deck hazardous and uncomfortable. At the same time, the danger from propellers and jet blast is always present and requires con- stant vigilance. Still the Air Department gets a vital job done. Perhaps more than any oth- ers, they have solid claim to the Navy man ' s habitual creed: " Without us, the ship is nothing. " - WO-1 HENRY J. BOUCHARD V-1 Junior Division Officer " FLIGHT QUARTERS! FLIGHT QUAR- TERS FOR RESPOT ' PILOTS NOT RE- QUIRED. " Just who is required, and why are they called even more often than the man with the night ' s movies? The Air Department, and specifically V-1 Division, handles the movement and spotting of planes on the flight deck. From a vantage point in the midst of flight deck activity, V-l ' s work seems a chaotic ballet of waving arms and roll- ing planes, but there is metliod and experience to the madness. Launches do occur on the split second, because V-1, working out of Flight Deck Control, has provided a way and a space for every aircraft. With close to one hundred aircraft on board, moving and spot- ting for the repeated flight cycles during a day of operations re- quires the coordinated efforts of every man. There are no stars.

Con- stant day and night air op- erations require a flow of ready aircraft, and in the vital team, V-3 controls the posi- tion and movement of all planes on the hangar deck. " ,.- V. LCDR WILLIAM E. HANEY V-3 Division Officer • T •«» " " Position end movement " — these two words only begin to imply the critical, complex responsi- bility of V-3 Division. If an aircraft requires routine or urgent maintenance, it is brought down by elevator to the hangar deck and placed in a position which will let squadron personnel work undisturbed, near to the various repair shops. When another plane is needed on deck, V-3 must already have provided clear and immediate access to each of FORRESTAL ' s elevators so that the flow between hangar deck and flight deck con continue.

This control prevents any needless, last minute re- criminations and gives an overall balance to the work of V-3.

As a result, ne of the indispensable elements of successful carrier operation is the rapid refueling f its planes. Aviation Fuels, V-4 Division, performs as vital a service as do the thank- 3ss cooks in Commissary, feeding 4,000 men three times a day. V-4 fuels scores of ctive, full-grown planes every day — considering that one A3D can hold more than fif- 2en tons of jet fuel, the magnitude of their job is easily apparent. CWO HAROLD G.

Jet aircraft con now be refueled through the inflight-refueling probe in their nose, even while the engine is running. Planes are fueled even on the cata- pult and turning up, thus compressing critical time between flights. V-4 has demonstrated the ability to increase its capabili- ties by such methods; constant evaluation and thought on the part of fuels personnel help FORRESTAL give a steady, suf- ficient diet to demanding aircraft The V-6 Division is a jack of many trades, and still mas- ter of them oil. Versatile catch-all of the Air Depart- ment, they are charged with a variety of responsibilities ranging from changing a spark plug in a pickup truck, to assembling a powerful jet engine prior to its installation in a fighter. f, I LCDR JOHN O ' DONNELL V-6 Division Officer Also, as the maintenance roup for the Air Department, ley look after the ship ' s TF " transport aircraft, as ell as the rolling stock of arry-alls, sedans, etc. The ear and tear on bright yel- )w service tractors, or mules, " and jeep energizing nits, is terrific — steady re- air their only salvation. r W ' " I ULX ENGINE AND TRANSPORTATION SHOP Tiitirni r I«NK PROPEUfR SERVICING To accomplish their several tasks, V-6 operates a number of shops throughout the ship: the aircraft engine shop, aviation elec- tronics shop, aviation metal shop, oxygen shop, and parachute loft.

HELICOPTER UTILITY SQUADRON TWO Despite a comic appearance, the twin rotored HUP is the Navy ' s most versatile helicopter. The awkward seem- ing bird can move at any angle, in any direction. In its belly, a large electrically operated hatch and hydraulic hoist enable quick access to the cabin from below, while the vast plexiglass nose allows a perfect panorama. This agile bird is a many-sided tool of the fleet. FORRESTAL ' s helos are backed up by a trained crew of twelve men, who fly as crewmen and maintain the air- craft at the end of each day. Every rescue crewman has volunteered for intensive instruction at the home base NAS Lakehurst. Their job asks constant attention to detail, and HU-2 ' s Detachment 42 — though unnoticed until they ' re needed — is the guardian angel of FORRESTAL operations. Only a downed pilot who has seen the helo hover above water to pull him out, can testify to this. LCDR. CHRISTIANSEN was born in Faulkton, South Dakota in 1922. Graduating from Athol High he was first employed by Douglas Aircraft in California. At the onset of World War II he entered the Coast Guard and in 1945 began his Naval flying career. Re- ceiving his wings in 1947 he was assigned to VA-16 and began a long association with AD type aircraft. In 1949 he won the unofficial title of " Diving Bombing Champion of the Pacific Fleet, " while flying the Able Dogs of VA-155. Since that time FASRON 8, VS-822, VA-175 and I.B.T.U. rosters have included his name. Introduced to Whirly Birds in October of 1957, he is presently on his third cruise with helicopters. LCDR EDWARD F. CHRISTIANSEN The " Angel " Detachment is aptly named. Beyond their evangelical rescue duties, they provide each Sunday a " HOLY HELO " to transfer the Chaplain from ship to ship. The motto of HUTTRON TWO, " Service to the Fleet, " also has several senses. With their four pilots alternating during every daylight hour, at least one of the two Whirly- birds is bound to be at work, transferring parts, cargo, mail and personnel, flying plane guard, shooting photos, or help- ing in gunnery and radar calibration. Even in port, many hops are flown to the local airfield for the convenience of the ship ' s company proficiency pilots. Left to right; Erhordt, F. J., ENS; Kaus, R. W., LTJG; Christiansen, E.

He attended Newton High School and Bowdoin Col- lege, graduating in 1938. He was varsity football, basketball and baseball player both at high school and college. He entered the Navy as an AvCad, finishing on December 5, 1941, just two days before Peorl Harbor, Prior to joining FORRESTAL, all of his operational billets have been with VF or VS carrier-based squad- rons. While in VF-27, aboard USS SUWANNEE and land-based in the Solomons, in 1942-43, Commander Frazier saw combat action, and was aworded 2 DFC ' s and 3 Air Medals, plus Letter of Commendotion and Unit Citation. He was Commanding Officer of VS-24 in 1950-51. CDR CLAUDE R. FRAZIER Whatever a ship con do depends first and last on its safe passage in the seas and harbours of the world. To anyone but the two officers and 27 enlisted men of the Novigotion Departnnent, the Medi- terranean is one daily expanse of water after another, happily broken by curving harbors and jutting islands. But in the eyes of Navigation and Quartermaster, the sea is divided into a rigid plaid of ref- erence points, Gunnery Exercise areas, air craft operating areas, and just plain areas. A transit of the Straits of Messina — to the crew, a curious sight for picture taking — gives the Navigation Department nearly four hours of careful, arduous ship con- trol.

Deep In the stern of the ship, below the fcntail, two After Steering stations — though sel- dom really used — are constantly manned at sea, constantly ready to take over from the bridge in the event of a steering cas- ualty. And the well-trained team of Quartermasters behind the Navigator takes control of the ship whenever precise ship- handling is needed: entering port, fueling alongside an oiler, entering a narrow strait, tying up at a pier. The Quartermaster ' s job varies be- tween the intricacies of celestial and elec- tronic navigation, and the less glamorous but essential chore of winding and setting the ship ' s clocks every day. On the Bridge or Quarterdeck, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the QMOW stands his watch, as- sisting the Officer of the Deck. And among all Quartermasters in Navigation, the buglers, sounding " Mail Call! " and " Liberty Call! " , bring the gladdest tidings to the crew. f ENGINEERING Commander W J Hussong is a line officer re- stricted to engineering duty A native of New Jersey, he attended Washington and Jefferson College where he became a member in Lambda Chi Alpha and Phi Beta Kappa fraternities. He is also a graduate of the PG School at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Commissioned as a reserve officer in 1942 he was ordered to the Reserve Midshipman School at Co- lumbia and Notre Dame. After attending Nova! Archi- tecture School at University of Michigan, he was or- dered to Philadelphia Navy Yard where he was Ship Superintendent for Construction of the USS LOS AN- GELES (CA 135). Commander Hussong was trans- ferred to the Regular Navy in 1946. In his lost duty before reporting to the FORRESTAL, he wos superin- tending engineer at the Naval Boiler and Turbine Lab- oratory, Philadelphia. CDR WILLIAM J. HUSSONG, JR. LCDR RICHARD W. MELLIN n Domage Control Assistant LT(JG) MAX C. RICHARDSON Main Propulsion Assistant ■VjSi Electrical Division is another whose need is felt throughout the ship. The floating city called FORRESTAL contains thousands of separate spaces, and among them all must stretch a complete but flex- ible network of Interior Communications. The 2300 ship ' s phones are only a small load on E Division, and yet the IC switch- boards handle as many as 13,000 calls per day. r ' . J ENSIGN JOSEPH F. CAMPBELL Administrative Assistant LTUG) AMOS T. SHOWALTER To service all electrical and com- munications units in the ship, E Division is broken down into several independent shops and spaces. For instance, the only connection between a coffee making unit and the ship ' s running lights is the Light- ing Shop, which is responsible for them both, as well as all 1 15-volt circuits. The Distribution Shop, operating from Number 6 Switchboard Room, con- trols power from the ship ' s generators, 400 cycle and emergency diesel, and the dis- tribution network in general. All the motors aboard ship depend on the Power Shop, which — among many oth- er jobs — is charged with the electrical as- pect of the ship ' s air conditioning. Without light or communications, the FORRESTAL would be like a mute, stum- bling hulk adrift at sea. But with them, and thanks to E Division, the ship is a co- hesive, efficient machine.

For the seven utility boats, two officers ' motor-boats, Cap- tain ' s Gig, and Admiral ' s Barge, that take one thousand men ashore each day, are the fleet of the ' Ith Division. At sea, they paint, varnish and polish the boats daily; and m port, at anchor, they supply a crew of three to each boat — coxswain, bowhook and stern- hook. Besides the liberty boats the Fourth mans its tripod and black oil hose at the re- fueling station on elevator four, where they also rig a highline for transfer of mail, movies, stores, and personnel. The fantail crew of the Fourth Division mans port and starboard highlines, or streams the target sled for aircraft-gunnery and bombing run practice. So the Fourth, operating on a port and starboard basis, remains one of the few di- visions to continue work in port as hard as at sea.

Part of the Ordnance Group in the Gun- nery Department, GM is charged with the work of testing and assembling the " Side- winder " and other air-launched missiles, and the maintenance of associated test equip- ment. Working in a shop forward of Hangar Bay One, their busiest hours come during prolonged strike exercises, when missiles ore constantly shuttled between the shop and the planes. The division is manned by enlisted per- lonnel of the Aviation Guided Missile (GF) ate, which skill demands a long and thor- )ugh course at technical schools, or else ex- ensive field experience.

The first component of fire con- trol, the Target Designation System in Combat Information. Center, can co-ordinate Forcestal ' s fire power in the case of heavy attacks, directing each 5 " mount to its best target. Alone, the Mk 56 System uses visual location of the target, radar tracking, and mechanical computation of ballistics; whereas the Gunar system locates the target, tracks and computes target information electronically. I LCDR ARTHUR R. KING Assistant Technical Supervisor LCDR EDWIN C. BARTLETT Technical Supervisor Part electrician, mechanic, ordnonceman, physical technician or nuclear physicist, special weapons personnel are quiet, nondescript men who perform an obviously important function, still shrouded in secrecy. And besides technical skills, the officers and men (every man is a rated man) of W Division must come equipped with unques- tionable national loyalty and an extra sense of re- sponsibility, as well as the virtues of sailor and shipmate. SWU men often need to work long and ir- regular hours, since much of their work is per- formed in the dead of night. But despite the cloud around it, theirs is a job like any other job — only now, the hope for international peace is mixed in their work. " SWU " sounds like the quiet swish of the veil of secrecy surrounding the work of a Special Weapons Unit. In fact, little is to be spoken aloud about the activity of men who deal primarily with nuclear weapons, for all but the last appearance of their work on deck is done within restricted bounds. The best description of W Division responsibili- ties is to say, simply, that they stow, inspect, assemble and repair nuclear weapons in or- der to maintain Forrestal ' s atomic capability.

Perhaps the only true " All-Hands " operation aboard Forrestal, besides Battle Stations, is an ail-day replenishment at sea. When the carrier striking force of the Sixth Fleet meets the Service Force, Task Force 63, then begins a rigorous day, often lasting from before dawn until well into the night — a day of ship handling, line handling on the elevators, heavy transfers over the water from ship to ship, chains of men on the hangar deck, and final stowage in the storage spaces below decks. The Forrestal may go alongside as many as five ships in the course of a day and night with Task Force 63, for fuel, dry stores, frozen goods, general stores nnaterial, and ammunition. Each one of these meetings requires a smooth, close approach despite heavy seas, quick securing of the lines between ships, and efficient passage of hundreds of tons of equipment to the correct space, in the correct order for future use. From the conning Bridge on the 8th level, where the Captain handles the ship in each approach and cons it at close quarters for as long as ' Vz hours, to the men in the reefers, or ice boxes of the Forrestal 1 3 decks below — all these are necessary elements in a critical operation at sea. AENT One man ' s job on the hangar deck may not give him an overall picture of the operation, but there is actual excitement in every step of the work. The roar of the rollers is contagious, as carton after carton moves down the lines of men and tracks, while the band pounds out jazz for the crew, as long as Forrestal is along-side another ship. If one crate of fresh apples happens to break open, in the hazard of a difficult transfer, there is still no waste. All in all it takes about 600 men in the working party, besides the number who continue routine work in support of the operation. The store rooms are located both forward and oft, which doubles the logistic problem. The amount of supplies taken on board ship depends always on the supply ship itself. A record was achieved on 17 December, 1958 in a replenishment from the USS Rigel (AF-58). 340 tons of ap- proximately 15,000 cases, were brought aboard Forrestal in 3 ' 2 hours. In 3 more hours every case was stowed away. Furthermore, the whole operation was conducted on a ready hangar deck. There are planes throughout the deck ready for immediate use. And the outstanding fact of this replenishment was that it was accomplished without accident. ESCORT DUTY AT ITS BEST! 1 iS3 YEARS OLD The primary mission of the Forrestal Marine Detachment is interior guard duty. Marines fulfill this long tradition of the Corps in the Special Weapons spaces, in the Brig, on Deck, and as personal orderlies to the Ad- miral, Chief of Staff, Captain and Exec. And aboard Forrestal, the constant chain of im- portant guests makes the Marines, as Honor Guard, the spokesmen and showmen of the ship. But in addition to guard and Honor Guard duty, the usual housekeeping chores of men at sea must be performed. During General Quarters, marines have stations in the handling rooms of the 5 " 54 magazines. Id! ' I II ' II II ai A DAY AT THE BEACH s — .. - -• ■ Forrestal marines are the nucleus of the ship ' s potential landing party, and whenever required, they will be ready for full landing operations. Constant training and calisthenics make them the physi- cally fittest men on the ship. And constant attention to bearing and appearance make all of them — from the " boot " private to the Officer in Charge — trademarks of a proud corps. SICK CALL SOMETIMES LEADS TO MEDICAL Commander Richard E Luehrs was graduated from the University of Oregon Medical School following previous schooling in that state leading to the degree of B. S, in Pharmacy. After his medical training, he was ordered to NAS Moffett Field, California, and has never been separated from Naval Aviation since that time. He completed instructions at the U. S. Nova School of Aviation Medicine at Pensacola. Among his next assignments were duty aboard thirteen carriers in both oceans, while with Carrier Air Group Seven for four years.

CROSS D Division Officer Smaller and quieter than any department on the ship, Dental is noticed only when needed — and then their importance is far out of proportion to their size. In a typical month during the Med cruise they treated over 500 separate patients, by means of the latest technique and equipment available to any dentist or clinic ashore. The four dental officers and seven dental technicians can perform virtually every needed operation, from cleaning, extraction, restoration, and the placement of a simple silver fill- ing, to the most complex of prosthetic appliances and oral surgery. The prosthetic laboratory is an innovation in the Navy, and a remark- able addition to the Forrestal ' s dental facilities. Prosthetics involves the adding of an artificial part to the human body, and in the lab, the dental staff can produce perfect substitutes for missing teeth, as well as gold castings for bridge work. Difficult or urgent cases are seldom sent ashore for outside treatment, since teeth are the same — military or civilian, at sea or ashore — and the dental department is responsible for them all. A modern, many-sided Navy persists because every division and every man in it know themselves to be essential, the Dental Department self-SLifficient specialists, have a right to be sure of themselves. • tb Left to right; Cross, G.

And still, S-1 supplies aviation repair parts to Forrestal squadrons. The division is administratively broken down into three units: S-1 I and S- ' z personnel for office and storeroom repair parts; S-1 3 for avia- tion storekeeping. A collective on-hand inventory of S-1 ma- terial shows a range of 75,000 different items, while the total number of articles approaches one- half million. The $4,000,000 value of these goods includes again a wide range, prices varying from $.003 for resistors to $2,000 for magnetron tubes and even $1,000,000 for some types of jet en- gines. Once more.

Aboard Forrestal, S-2 does it all everything but laying the egg or giving the milk. A ton of potatoes, six thousand fresh eggs, six hundred pies, one thousand chickens and a thousand pounds of fruit: this is only a small portion of the amount of food consumed daily aboard the ship. And few restaurants find it profit- able to remain open twenty-four hours a day; however, owing to air op- erations the men of S-2 Division are often required to keep their spaces manned ' around the clock. With the serving of early breakfast, regular breakfast dinner, supper and midnight rations, every man has a chance for " three squares, " making a total of about 11,000 meals per day. A OUR DAILY BREAD Even the seemingly little group of 100 coffee messes draws two tons of coffee per month. Seventy-one men man the galleys, butcher shops, vegetable preparation rooms, storerooms and bake shops, while 187 " swab- bys " - — the Mess Cooks of S-2 M — are needed simply to keep the mess decks clean. The 200 tons or so of stores we receive in a normal day ' s replenish- ment at sea, make up the row material of S-2 ' s responsibility. If " an army marches on its stomach, " the Navy floats on it.

Though most of their functions are not surrounded by glory or excitement, they are none the less important. Remove the " gedunk stands, " ship stores, barber shops, cobbler shop, laun- dry, dry cleaning, clothing and small stores, hobby shop and vend- ing machines, and you leave a spiritless, uncivilized ship. ' C «!t m The least apparent type of logistics is human logistics, satisfying the personal needs of the officers and crew who run the ship. In meeting those needs, for instance, over 30,000 candy bars, 1 25,000 packages of ciga- rettes, and over 26,000 cokes are sold in a month. In fact, the typical sailor leaves over $20.00 per month on Soles Division counters, this despite the fact that many of the services are given without charge.

V S-4 is divided in three: Payoll, Travel and Financial Returns. The first group figures the semi-weekly pay amounts, and enters all leave rations, longevity and changes in rate. Secondly, the Travel Section handles all travel and shore patrol claims. Like a large civilian company, they administer the Navy ' s carefully surveyed expense accounts. Financial Returns, the last division of S-4, does the paper work of Disbursing, send- ing and receiving all claims, vouchers, monthly returns and correspondence In all, S-4 Division, ready with a bargain rate for pesetas, or a family allotment, supplies the wherewithal for good times ashore or money for home.

S n OPERATIONS ♦ ♦ CDR JOHN H. lARROBINO Commander John H. larrobino, U5N, the Opera- tions Officer, was born in Chestnut Hill, Massachu- setts. He is a product of Boston College. He finished flight training in Pensacola and Miami in 1941. Dur- ing the war he was attached to various corner squad- rons; on the Ranger in the Atlantic and landbosed on Guadalcanal and Bougainville in the Pacific. Since 1945 his assignments hove been: the Ad- vanced Training Command in Jacksonville; the USS BOXER as Asst. Air Officer; under instruction at the General Line School in Newport; NAS Quonset; CO of Fighting Squadron 174 on the USS FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT; the Staff of Commander Fleet Air, Jack- sonville; and under instruction at the Naval War Col- lege in Newport. He come to the USS FORRESTAL in November, 1957 from the Aviation Plans Division of CNO in Washington, D. C. Absolutely unique, OP Division the Photo Lob ore liable for a graphic record of each man and every event aboard the FORRESTAL. A cruise, liberty in a foreign port, a crash on board, a broken fuel line, a birthday party . . . these and countless others (though the Photo Lab counts and files them) are pos- sible matter for the 500-odd shots they make per month. Some events remembered, some forgotten, but all can be remembered by OP. In pure vigilance, they equal the Command- ing Officer, taking a moving picture of every day launch and recovery. Accurate and complete as they ore, the Photo Lob can be helpful or em- barrassing, leaving a vivid, not to be distorted record of events. Continuing the human analogies that Operations divisions seem to prompt, OP becomes the retina of the FORRESTAL. And only a little of their work goes into " news " — greeting VIP ' s or covering hi- lines and fueling rigs. Their first responsibility is Aviation Intelli- gence, and Aerial Reconnaissance with the newest electronically con- trolled cameras takes a quarter of their time. Besides, ID and por- trait photography, shots of damaged material, and endless on-the- spot coverage of special occasions leave not much time for the de- veloping and printing which must go on behind the scenes. For that basic work, as well as for all their functions, the Photo Lab uses the best and latest machinery known to Armed Forces photography. h LCDR EDUARDC OP Division P. BROWN Officer Curiously enough, two other essential offices come within the scope of OP Division: Aviation Intelligence, and the Department of- fice itself. Al is the quiet, unseen, factual brain behind aircraft missions, briefing in turn the squadrons and individual pilots. Be- yond this, their need is to know what is not commonly published; for instance, the military capabilities and vulnerability to air attack of all potential enemies of the United States. They have already brought to a finish, strategic situations which are yet to occur. aw Back row, left to right: Ferrier ill, T. T., PHI; James, J. R., PHGAN; Bates, R. D., PH2; Quandt, C.

They have a small world — bound- ed by the flag bag, signal shelter and 09 level — but a wide and cru- cial responsibility.

And Air Ops, one small room in the center of the ship, means OC Division. In that one small room. Air Ops personnel keep in intimate contact with the bridge, for flight changes which involve the tactical movement of FORRESTAL; with Primary Fly, for problems affecting launch and recovery, or communica- tion with on aircraft; with Combat Information Center, for technical questions of aircraft control; with the Squadron Ready Rooms, for status of particular planes and availabili- ty of pilots; and with Flight Deck Control, for instant knowl- edge of aircraft location. CDR JUDSON C. DAVIS, J( Air Operations Officer The theory, Air Ops exists to coordinate and schedule the ship ' s flight operations, and furnish relative information to pilots. This in itself would be sufficient responsibility for the four officers end 12 men in Air Ops; but their prescribed mission does not even suggest the additional du- ties which fall to OC on a super carrier. In the course of a normal day, they may be asked to: put a sailor ' s last-minute letter on the TF to Naples, accept 1800 pounds of incoming mail for all ships in company, ferry Senator so-and-so and an emergency leave case to Nice, send a helicop- ter above the fleet for moving pictures, etc ad infinite preoccupation of Air Ops. But they olways come back to their first task, making a framework for operating aircraft. The room is encompassed by status boards displaying weather reports, ship ' s position, nearest land, planes ' side numbers, fuel states, pilot names, time off and on deck; and these boards contin- ually change face, as the day ' s flight schedule progress. The end of each day brings only prep- aration for the next, and a break in flight operations is only o chance to fit in more helo trips or TF flights. As long as there is an aircraft in the air or about to be, OC Division is in force. Bock row, left to right: Sogn, R. F, SN; Copelond, R. F., SN; Front row, left to right: Seward, R.

I Sought after a s much as the Master- at-Arms is avoided, the Post Office may be the greatest morale factor aboard ship, being the link between Forrestalmen and their home or friends. POST OFFICE LEGAL " Justitia omnibus " is the watchword of every man and event in the Legal Office, as they try to interpret various sources of military law in or- der to maintain the discipline of justice for all aboard ship. Legal is unique, being the judge and defense of everv man on the ship 4 " History is being made every day aboard For- restol, just as it is also mode in the other, out- side world. The Public information Office is a vogue, all-inclusive source of facts, liable to be called upon for every- thing from Saturday ' s football score to the ex- act time of day. Their double responsibility is to the crew for public news, and to the public for news of shipboard life — so that the world may know there is a Forrestol. At one time or anoth- er, the Executive Depart- ment will do a " special service " for every man or division on the Forrestol — interpreters of that difficult role, white col- lar workers in a dunga- ree society. Where do the reams of printed material come from? Below decks in the Print Shop, skilled litho- graphers put out every- thing from cosmo-secret material to the telephone directory. The " press gong " often works around the clock to meet impossible deadlines and insure prompt service for rriony customers. ARRIER DIVISION FOUR STAFF CDR. W. C.

FORRESTAL plays a dual role, as one of the key ships in the Sixth Fleet as well as the flagship of Task Force 60, the fleet ' s main striking arm. From behind the " Restricted " doors of Flog Operations and in the heights of Flag Plot, the efforts of Task Force 60 are directed by its commander, RAdm Roy L. Johnson, who relieved RAdm C, D. Griffin on December 2nd. Every step of a Task Force 60 operation, from initial planning to final execution, is performed by RAdm Johnson and his staff of 19 officers, occording to an Operation Order which is the first fruit of CTF 60 planning. RAdm Johnson wears two other hats. Whenever NATO forces ore activated he ossumes the role of CTF 239, the NATO Attack Carrier Striking Force.

Soon they entered the Pacific campaign, and the battles of Guadalcanal, Santa Cruz and Remell Island. Again in 1943, CAG-10 reformed its squadrons at Seattle, Washington, to go to sea. By the end of the Pacific war, the planes of Air Group Ten had fought at Okinawa and elsewhere, finally par- ticipating in the Show of Strength dur- ing surrender ceremonies in Tokyo Bay. The Air Group was decommissioned on November 23, 1945, after receiving two Navy Unit Commendations. Recom- missioned in 1952, at Cecil Field, Flori- da, CAG-10 had completed deployments to Mediterranean and North Atlantic waters before boarding Forrestal on July 13th for the present Med cruise.

The detachment consists of a group of four team pilots, one Photographic Interpretation Officer and a crew of thirty-five skilled technicians, who supply the suport which completes this highly specialized unit. Pilots of VF-62 fly Chance Vought Aircraft ' s F8U-1P " Crusader, " winner of the Collier Trophy. Filling a vital need, the planes of VFP-62 provide photographic coverage at supersonic speeds of a mul- titude of targets used in fleet operations. And secondly, in a combatant situation, their mission would be to provide first phase photographic interpretation reports and damage assessment information. " Photo Crusaders " con take pictures with forward firing, vertical and oblique cameras anywhere from ground level to altitudes over fifty thousand feet. Used mainly in Aviation Intelligence, these photographs are the raw material of attack plans and post-strike evaluation. Commissioned in 1949, the parent squadron of the Forrestal ' s photo detachment is based at Jack- sonville, Florida. During their nine year history over eighty detachments have been deployed on more than twenty different aircraft carriers. Back row, left to right: Quandt, C. F., PHI, Hodges, R.

" Two cruises the next year marked the squadron ' s successful transition to the new fighter, and a primary mission of special weapons delivery. During their Administration Material Inspection in 1955, " Hell ' s Archers " was presented with the Chief of Naval Operations Annual Safety Award Plaque for the outstanding single-pilot propeller aircraft squadron in the Atlantic Fleet. After an entire month at point " Moses " in the Med during the Suez Crisis, VA-104 ' s Commanding Officer was presented the Battle Efficiency " E " Award for 1956. And early in 1957, 23 individual " E " ' s were award- ed to VA-104.

An exciting and rewarding tour to the Medi terranean has followed. 4 ,..: S Fighter Squadron One Hundred Two was given birth at Cecil Field, Florida in July, 1955. No obstacle, lack of aircraft or pilots, held the squadron back from becoming proficient as quickly as possible in gunnery and bombing, whereupon it was deployed to Key West for night intercept training. Shortly after special weapons training and " carrier quals, " they made an eight month Mediterranean cruise. Again at Cecil Field in February 1957, the " Diamondbacks " began receiving the new F4D-1 " Skyrays, " and a new phase of training began.. The " Skyray " is a delta wing, high performance, single seat all-weather " fighter capable of supersonic speeds, and holds several altitude records. With this plane, VF-102 took second and third place in the all-weather air-to-air portion of the Weapons Meet held at El Centre in 1957. Al- ready qualified, the squadron was fully prepared to board Forrestal for the current Med Cruise. LCDR NICHOLAS J.

In April 1944 he entered flight Tfaining and re- ceived his wings in December 1945. He was then at- tached to Fighting Squadron 98. He seivi?d as Com- manding Officer of Carrier Air Service Unit B. He reported to Fighting Squadron 194 as Executive Qtticer in August 1946. Duty in the Office of the Chie pf Naval Operations followed. CDR TULLY attended t Air Command and Staff School at Maxwell AFB CDR JOSEPH M. TULLY, JR. hie was Assistant Naval Attache to Mexico lowed by instruction at the Armed Forces Staff lege, and then Training Unit 101 at Corpus Chnsti, Texas. In 1955, Commander TULLY reported to Heavy Attack Squadron FIVE as Executive Officer assuming command of that Squadron in January 1957. As the first Heavy Attack Squadron, VAH-5 was commissioned at NAS Moffett Field in 1948, and designated Composite Squadron FIVE (VC-5l. Then flying the P2V-2 and P2V-3C, the purpose of the squad- ron was to provide a capability for carrier based atomic weapons delivery. In 1954, AJ aircraft of VC-5 r efueled thrse F9F-6 " Cougars " on their record break- ing cioss-country flight; and later the same year they were deployed with the Sixth Fleet, carrying out simulated bombing missions and refueling jet aircraft. C DR IRA M. ROWELL, JR. Execufive Officer, then Commanding Officer The squadron began its modern phase early in 1957, as Heavy Attack Squadron FIVE (VAH-5) with a transition to the A3D " Skywarrior " before the present Med cruise. In this training cycle the " Savage Sons of Sanford " -were named best heavy attack squadron in the fleet for 1958, after copping their phase of the Navy Air Weapons Meet. VAH-5 ' s huge twin jet " Skywarrior, " the largest carrier based aircraft today, is a high altitude, long range bomber capable of seek- ing a target by radar in any weather and delivering its weapons, whether nuclear or conventional.

And one claim they have against all ports in the Mediterranean: the bend oj bay that gives a " bella panorama " from count- less spots in the hills above the city. But some went north, for . . . II ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROME... if Forrestal men rere honored in an audience with Pope Pius XIl; but the event suddenly gathered much more significance ii hen Eugenio Pacelli died soon after the first tours to Rome. Sail- ors had seen Saint Peter ' s, the very center of world Catholicism, and aive- some mark of the tiventy ceyituries of tradition behind a great Pope and his faith. _W iife smoke from the Sistirtc chimney meant a ncTr Pope, and anoth- er joint in the continuum of Catholic dominion. ■%V 4 n 21 ....

Big cities grow up a- Tound rivers, beginning on each bank and swell- ing outwards: jarms be- come suburbs, and sub- urbs the city itself. And ij the city is not inland, but a port, the old quar- ter or ancient city clus- ters around the water. What sounds like a tru- ism — to say that a city grows jrom the water out — is actually a story of the life of the place itself. So when a sailor comes ashore from the Fleet Landing to walk into the city, or instinc- tively goes through the streets that point to a river moving through the town, he is umlking in time with the growth of the city.

Though ce associate grey stone bodies and strange virtues loith the " Roman " man. the citizen of the city is still called a Roman. What makes the city different — less for tourists and vtore for tlie genuine trai ' teller — is that the Roman — is that the Roman c i t i z e n ivorks and ivalks innoticing a- mnng the stages of ancient history t h a J are the frameinork of his city. They a r e part of his past, and he takes thein right- fully for granted Where the historical 7nonument would be put on show in most coiintries, in Rome it stands as part of an order that has en- diired since before the advent of the tourist It doesn ' t seem diffi- cidt to imagine form- er Romans striding through the grassy ruins that spot the city now. p I s A FLORENCE The Arno flows through Florence and Pisa and then to the sea; and both cities are divided by the river. From the leaning edge of the leaning tower, or Campanile, in Pisa, the Arno is seen to wind to the sea. And from any vantage point in Florence, the river is below. Suitably enough, the oldest bridge across the river in Florence is called Ponte Vecchio, or " Old Bridge, " and only foot-walkers can go across it. The oldest Piazzas and Palazzos crowd around the river, among them. the Piazza della Signoria, where the Uffizi Gallery is. Those streets and squares con- sciously bear the name of the men that Florence is proudest of, for the city is nothing, if not the sacred center and spring of Renaissance culture. They are proudest of Michelangelo, Titoretto, Ghiberti, Verdi, Dante, and countless other painters, sculptors, compos- ers and writers. From the more than life-size copy of Michelangelo ' s David, in the Piazzale Michelangelo above the city, to the smallest replica of it in a base- ment art shop, is a train of originals and copies of statues and paintings meant to spread and perpetuate the spirit of Florence. t ii (Ml. .• " J— ' - .i |0l-iilii| , . ' " _ - - f • ' ■ ' ' nr The fringes of Florence soon slope up into the green and spotted hills of Tuscany. An ancient Roman amphitheatre and thermal baths at Fiesole overlook the city on one side, and the cypress of Tuscany on the other, where only a church or occasional home breaks the steady roll of hills and farmland. All in all, Florence is too much to absorb in the short time allowed, either in the detail and scope of its art, or the depth of its history in time. Too soon, we hod to foMow the river back to Pisa and the sea. ■i- M J?Jj ! ' in- .O - No doubt the most traditional artistic pilgrimages in Florence lead directly to the statute of David or to the bronze doors by Ghiberti in the Piazza Duomo. And rightly so, for they each sym- bolize the Florentine concern for form at the same time as a living story. Michelangelo, who created the statute of David, called Ghiberti ' s doors the " Portals of Paradise " % , 4 A U .

Parisians have an accurate knowledge of their monuments and the history behind them, but the bulk of the people live in c different, newer world, not as merely " more modern " Parisians side by side the marks of their past. But Paris grew outward from, the two banks of a river, as many another city did from river or seaport. In the middle of the Seine and the city, for example, on the He Saint-Louis, a few people live a life radically un changed in the past centuries. They have their own local news- paper, and consider themselves more akin to the pre-Christian origins of the ancient city, Lu- tetia, than to Paris itself. ■• - -•17 ' «j.rmtn uvi...«t ■ mr i.-. ■ iin u iiv..»«.- v..n.. . Other, half separate sections of the city — the Latin Quarter, Montmartre, Montpornosse — still cling to their own nature, but not in the same sense as Me Saint-Louis, a vestige of Paris ' begin- ning. An habitue of the Latin Quarter today is more like Toulouse Lautrec than an ancient Latin, while the distinctive " cultural " settlements in Paris hark back to the artistic circles of the nine- teenth century rather than any earlier memory. ■i l 4 R V E R A - l " - ' 3 ,C i 5 " .

One word, " congenial " (or " simpatico, " as sail- ors could also be), suffices to explain a good liberty port. lil Spanish hours of work and play hardly accord with six o ' clock Reveille and ten o ' clock Taps, so the entire Forrestal day was retarded one hour, better to let the sailor revel late o ' nights. Even so, three hours siesta at the height of day was puzzling to the crew. And come evening, a great- er puzzle was one ' s inability to find a functioning restaurant before nine-thirty at night. Barcelona rightly stays up late at night. To the beat of castanets and tapping feet, the city presents a hundred happy spots, and as many de- lightful gaps in the language barrier.
