A WestPac cruise is a special time for a ship ' s company. It is set apart from other periods by various factors: the sense of mission, the lack of personnel turnover, the port visits — and principally by the fact of do ins rather than just training. WestPac ' 66, the fourteenth such cruise for FRANK E. EVANS, was special for all these reasons. We had many demanding as- signments: we carried them out well and with a certain dash. We returned to Long Beach with the satisfaction that can only come from good performance. This book only records a part of the experiences of the cruise. It provides, how- ever, an outline of major events and a sampling of pictures. It will be the key for each of us in recalling the many ex- periences and sights that make WestPac ' 66 memorable. i ' -I

RECOLLECTIONS Brigadier General Frank E. Evans, USMC, was born in 1876 in Franklin, Pennsylvania. He served in the Marines first as an infantryman in the Philippines during the Spanish- American War. After the war he entered Princeton University. Upon being graduated from Princeton, he accepted a commission as Second Lieutenant in 1900. During World War I he served in France with the Sixth Regiment of Marines as Regimental Adjutant and Commander of Camp Benicart and as Regimental Adjutant and Operations officer in the Toulouse sector where he participated in the Aisue Marne defensive. In recognition of his services in France, General Evans, an often decorated fighting man, was awarded the Navy Cross and a Meritorious Service Citation for his action against the enemy at Belleau Woods. His post war service included duty in Haiti where he commanded the Constabulary Detachment and was Chief of the Gendarmerie d ' Haiti. Retiring from active service December 1, 1940, General Evans made his home in Honolulu where he died at the Pearl Harbor Naval Hospital on November 25, 1941, twelve days prior to the beginning of World War II. His destroyer namesake 754 slid down the ways at the Bethlehem Steel Company yard, Staten Island, New York on October 3, 1944, with Mrs. Frank E. Evans, the general ' s widow and ship ' s sponsor present.
