motto: "The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness". In the years to
follow people from the world around came to the islands to live. Now it has
600,000 people, representing most of the races of the world. July 7, 1898, the

First call at foreign shores
The Philippines is at the crossroads of Asia. Colonizers and
invaders here left a diversity of culture and blood in a true melting pot
of humanity. Its people reveal the addition of Spanish, Chinese, or
American blood to the basic Malay stock.
The Philippines has a growing population of 28 million. Grow-
ing pains are evident in the food, clothing, and shelter needs that are
a rising problem, politics is a national pastime pursued with fire and
passion. Much of the political institutions are legacies of almost half
a century of American rule.

Dai-butsu--The . . .
The Great Buddha of Kamakura is a representa-
tive of Buddha, Amitabha, the Lord of the Western
Pureland fa Monk who made forty-eight vows to
save all beings and was granted the title because he
fulfilled them.J V I
The Image was built in 1252. It stands 44 feet
high, weighs 274,428 pounds, and has a pure silver
curl on the forehead, believed to emit rays of light
to illuminate the universe.
"The figure sits in dignified repose with a most
placid expression of countenance, from its forehead
protrudes' a boss representing jewel from which light
is supposed to flow, and which symbolizes an idea
similar to that expressed in our scriptures:-"I am
the light of the World."
Dr. C. Dress'er's
J apan-It's architecture
"The Dai-butsu sits here in the open air, his
head looming above the pine trees, and his face
turned downward toward the peaceful waters of the
ocean-Typical of the dreamland Nirvana."
A. C. Maclay

Mt. Sakurajima was once an island lying in the bay of
Kagoshima. It is now a peninsula. The How of lava in the
great eruption of 1914 choked up the narrow channel which
formerly separated it from the mainland. Since the first er-
uption recorded in history occurred in 1468, there have been
27 eruptions of the SAKURAIIMA VOLCANO.

' The city of Victo-ria is known by many things: the clothing mecca
of the worldg the city of intrigue, the city reputed to have the most
beautiful harborg and the city with more nations and countries repre-
sented in its populace than any other. But Victoria is more commonly
known as Hong Kong-the city of Suzie Wong, of beautiful Chinese
ladies dressed in cheongsam fthe dress with the slit at each sidelg
and the city of the sampans and floating homes. Hong Kong is all
this and even more.
The three million people in the Hong Kong Colony, of which over
99? are of the Chinese race, are cheerful, independent, and indus-
trious. Their ability to accept and adopt Western ways is well illu-
strated by the presence of modern air-conditioned buildings, New York
steakes, Western dress, and the strains of "The St. Louis Blues." Old'
and New, East and West-all meet in Hong Kong.
The area in and around what is now Hong Kong was first opened
up by Portuguese traders in 1557. Other European trade powers
tried, unsuccessfully, for many years to obtain trade with China and
her wealth of jade, silk, and ivory ware. Not until the 7th Century
were the British successful in their quest for Chinese trade.
In 1840, as a result of the Opium War, the Chinese conceded the
island of Hong Kong to the British as a trade depot. Prior to formal
approval of the cession, the British began occupying the island. No
severe consequences resulted as the cession was ratified in 1842 by
the Treaty of Nanking.
At the Convention of Peking in 1860, the Chinese added more to
the ever-growing colony by relinquishing property rights to Stone-
cutter's' Island and Kowloon, a peninsula of the Chinese mainland.
The final portion of the British colony was obtained in 1898 with the
British leasing an area of the Chinese mainland known as the New
Territories. -This lease is to expire in 1997.
The growth of Hong Kong has continued without interruption
save World War II. From 1941-45, during the Japanese occupation,
the population dwindled down to one-half million. Since the war,
growth, population and business have been on the up-swing. The
colony's business growth and capacity are very evident by the 27
million tons of river and ocean cargo handled in 1958.
The government of Hong Kong centers around a governor who
receives his authority from London through letters, Patents and Royal
Instructions. Assisting the governor are the legislative and executive

The present city of Imabari originated as the country people of the sur-
rounding area first gathered about Fukiage Fortress, which was built in
1603 by Tede Takatora, a Samarai Lord. The remains of this fortress
have survived, and the fortress grounds still surrounded by the old moat
have been converted to a beautiful shrine which is a major tourist attraction.
Imabari was made an open port about 45 years ago and has since established
itself as one of the Inland Sae. Today the port of Imabari averages 140
ship arrivals and departures daily.
Imabarils population as of 1 March 1963 was 102,692 It covers an area
of approximately 29 square miles on the northwestern coast of the island
of Shikoku near the Southern entrance to the Kurashima Straits and is
surrounded by a range of high mountains which serve to shelter it from the
severe effects of typhoons. Imabari is a part of Ehime Prefecture, and
ranks as one of its principal industrial cities. Cotton textiles is a major
industry of the city, and eighty percent of the cotton towels exported from
japan are produced in the Imabari factories.

Kobe, with the largest port in the Orient,
ranks among the six major cities of Japan.
It is located on the north shore of Osaka Bay
in Central Honshu.
The city has a population of over a million
and stretches between the Rokko Mountain
range to the north and Osaka Bay to the south.
When the port of Kobe was opened to
foreign commerce about 85 years ago, it was
a small fishing village. The Sino-Japanese
War C1894-18955 and the Russo-Japanese War
C1904-19053 added greatly to the prosperity of
the port. With the temporary collapse of the
Yokohama silk trade after the great earth-
quake 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,
61fk of its city area was severely devastated.
Since 1945 about 75921 of the area has been
rehabilitated. From 1945 to 1951 Kobe great-
ly expanded by absorbing fifteen neighboring
towns and villages into the municipality. Kobe
today covers a vast area of 161.5 square miles it
as the eastern gateway to the Inland Sea.
Fifteen miles to the east lies Kyoto, J apan's
third largest city and ancient former capital.
Kyoto boasts over 2,200 temples and shrines
preserving manuscripts, paintings and works of
sculpture of ancient Japan. A Japanese
schoolboy visits Kyoto at least once during
his school life to learn of his heritage.
A 50-minute train ride from Kyoto and
we're in Nara, the origin of the Japanese
nation. Here Chinese civilization first exerted
its influence on Japanese life. The movement
of the capital to Kyoto isolated Nara from
further sophistication. To this day temples
and old homes remain intact, untouched by

Kaohsiung is located in the southern part of Tai-
wan, a province of the Republic of China. It is
surrounded in three directions by a great stretch of
fertile plains, rich in agricultural products of all
kinds. The city has one of the largest Hshing fleets
in free China. It also has a Hne harbor which is
within easy reach of all large cities throughout East
Asia. The area within the city limits is composed of
about 28,300 acres divided in ten districts. There
are about 500,000 people in the city of Kaohsiung.
Plans for the development of Kaohsiung as a naval
port were formulated by the Japanese following the
cession of Taiwan to Japan in 1895. Large scale
construction work in the development of the harbor
facilities was not started until 1908, however, by
1920, Kaohsiung became one of the two most im-
portant ports, and the largest harbor, on the island.
During World VVar II, the Japanese used the
harbor as the primary naval and supply base for
staging their military advances to the south and
southwest, consequently, the city was a key air target
and suffered heavy destruction from Allied bombing.
Since the war the city has not only emerged from
battered war ruins into a modern city, but has also
mapped out plans for becoming an industrial metro-
polis of one million people in twenty-five years. A
twelve-year harbor expansion program, now in its
third year, is to quadruple its harbor area and make
it one of the greatest and best ports of East Asia.

The initiating directive for Operation Backpack was flashed by message to all units concerned and as
in history the men of the Navy and Marine Corps were prepared. i i . . .
Aboard the USS GALVESTON men arose to the challenge with characteristic vigor and initiative.
Working on one side to coordinate the advance force and the Pre D-Day Shore Bombardment was Rear
Admiral ENSEY and his Staff while on the other the officers and men of the USS GALVESTON
worked to smooth the rough edges on the infinite number of tasks that lay ahead. There were com-
munication circuits to be checked, tiring procedures to be tested and targets to be chosen and assigned.

The hour to start the operation was then upon us. As the ship flashed by t e out ern p
the results of the many hours spent in planning paid oifg with competent speed, the firing data was passed,
the ship steadied, the mounts trained and the command to fire was passed.
The battle against the Circle Trigon aggressor forces had begun. Now for three days it was the job
of the USS GALVESTON and her sister ships of the advance force to pound the enemy positions,
soften the landing beaches and pave the way for the Marines that would arrive with the Amphibious
On 4 March, 1964 the word was passed that had launched the landings at Iwo lima and Normandy,
"Land the Landing Forcef' again sent LVT's and LCVP's iilled with men in battle dress from the mul-
titude of ships laying off the coast of Taiwan. VVith these words the mission of the USS GALVESTON
changed. Now supporting the troops ashore had an equal importance. The tracking radars of the mis-
sile system searched the skies for aggressor aircraft in connection with our new role, that of providing
antiaircraft protection for the Task Force.
Then as quickly as the operation was upon us it was over. Gone but not forgotten were the hours
spent on watch or at General Quarters, the backbreaking labor of replenishment at sea and the orders
and counter orders passed during the heat of battle. Again the USS GALVESTON had paved the way
for the Marines, protected the Task Force and proved "Anything You Can Do, We Can Do Better."

Nagasaki, with but 500,000 inhabitants, rates a modest 14th among Japa-
nese cities, yet to many foreigners it symbolizes Japan to a greater extent than
Yoritomo Minamato, founder of the Kamakura Shogunate, gave Nagasaki
its name, but in his day the place was hardly more than a fishing village, and
not until the -middle of the 16th century did it become an important gateway to
foreign trade. Then, however, it quickly developed as the principal gateway and
later the only gateway to world trade during the centuries-long period of J apan's
seclusion, the period that Commodore Perry finally brought to an end in 1853.
During the peak of Nagasaki's era of importance in foreign trade, before the
Tokugawa Shogunate expelled the Spanish and Portuguese and restricted the
Dutch traders to one small island called Deiima in Nagasaki Bay, there was
extensive trade with China, the Philippines, Siam tThailandJ and, of immense
cultural as' well as commercial significance, Portugal, Spain and Holland. The
European traders introduced Western books, Western methods of business,
Western science, medicine, chemistry, geology, and astronomy and even Western
military science. In the field of religion St. Francis Xavier, the dedicated Spanish
missionary who came here to preach Christianity, won an impressive measure
of success in Kyushu.
The fact that Christianity has endured in Kyushu even through World War
II is a measure of its power. Nagasaki, stronghold of this faith, was Atom-
bombed by Japan's Christian enemy and the Urakami Church in the Orient,
seating 6,000 worshipers was reduced to ruins.
TheX Oura Church suffered the same fate, though to a lesser degree. The
Oura Church which was the oldest Christian church in Japan, was built by a
French missionary in 1864. The flames of passion have largely died down and
Christian churches, new ones, again flourish in Nagasaki and its neighborhood.
The situation of this port, surrounded as it is by steep heights, is a rare beauty.
At the harbor's edge, stretching for almost two miles is the huge Mitsubishi

Sasebo, the western most city in Japan, lies on the south shore
of the northern tip of Kyushu, guarding the important narrows
between Japan and the East China Sea.
The port is important primarily as one of the two major U.S.
Naval Bases in Japan. As a commercial port, Sasebo is relatively
unimportant. Since the establishment of a naval station in 1886, it
has developed into an important naval port. Prior to that, it had
been an isolated hamlet. The industrial development of the port was
geared to the sole purpose of constructing and maintaining Japanese
naval vessels. The impact of World War II and the resulting sharp
decline in production and overseas trade reduced the population. By
1951, however, the population figure had almost returned to its 1940

Commander May is an old cruiser sailor who took a
fourteen year vacation in submarines. During World
War II he served in the light cruiser NASHVILLE,
participating in the Leyte, lVIindoro, and Borneo cam-
paigns. After decommissioning the NASHVILLE in
1946 he became a plankowner and the first F Division
Ofhcer of the heavy cruiser TOLEDO, a position he
held for 30 months. All of his submarine service was
at Key West in CALIVIAGORE, THREADFIN, and
QUILLBACK which he commanded for two years.
On shore duty he attended the Naval Postgraduate
School and MIT studying Fire Control Engineering.
Just prior to his reporting as Weapons Officer of the
GALVESTON he served three years in the POLARIS
Program at Pittsfield Mass.
He and Mrs. May are natives of Rochester, New
York, who were happy to turn San Diegan. Their
family includes five boys and five girls ranging in ages
from three to eighteen.

Second Division started the cruise to WESTPAC with
a relatively new crew. But they have distinguished
themselves during the cruise.
Second Division's duties are varied but are primarily
concerned with the basic skills of deck seamanship.
During general quarters almost every man in the division
is assigned to a repair party.
Their daily work routine varies from swabbing the
decks in the mornings to chipping, painting, and general
upkeep of their particular spaces during the day.
The division is always busy, but this is particularly so
when the ship enters port. When the ship anchors or
moors to a buoy, the boats have to be lowered away,
the after accommodation ladder rigged and lowered, and
the boat quarter booms have to be rigged.
The division definitely surpassed itself during underway
replenishments in WESTPAC. Their spirit and enthusi-
asm to do the job as efficiently and as quickly as possible
was indeed something to watch. And these UNREPS
truly took a team effort on the part of all hands--from the
leading petty officer, right down to the most junior seaman
apprentice. Each man was equally instrumental in help-
ing GALVESTON set several UNREP records during

This small group has more cleaning space
per man than anyone aboard ship. Regard-
less of whether they are swinging from a
boatswain's chair or working from stages.
They always turn in a truly creditable job.
With mainstays like NELSGN BM2 and
VANCE BM2, this small closely knit group
toil from sunup to sundown with little glarnor
but always taking pride in their job which
shows when anyone, even a land lubber, casts
a critical eye in GALVESTON's direction can
only remark, "Sure is a sharp looking ship."

Gunner's Mates, equal to the best in t
Navy, comprise the Third Division. They are
responsible for two 6"f47 triple turrets, three
5",f38 twin mounts and the associated maga-
zine spaces. In addition, they are responsible
for the Armory and the ordnance used by the
Landing Force Team. If the occasion should
arise, the Third Division's guns can be counted
on to deliver their maximum firepower.
At Tabonnes, we conducted shore bombard-
ment exercises where we once again proved
that guns are here to stay. Turret 1 and
Mount 53 are the proud recipients of GAL-
VESTON's first "E's". Turret 2 and Mounts
51 and 52 barely missed out in the competition.

Most people on board know very little about the
Missile Division since the majority of their work is' classi-
fied and is done in the Missile House.
The division, under the direction of LTJG C. L.
BALLOU, is responsible for the maintenance and Opera,
tion of the ship's missiles and missile launching system,
Between the GMM's and the MT's, the missiles and the
launching system are kept in a contant state of readiness,
The only part of Missile Division that is normally
seen by other personnel is the Launcher, located on the
fantail. It is here that the division displays its Talog
when we are in our home port and occasionally when
visiting other ports. The two missiles used in the demon-
strations are the trainer missiles carried for training and
evaluation purposes. They have been named BETTY and
GINNY which are the names of the Captain's and Execu-
tive Officer's wives.

In October 1963, as they have done throughout the history of the
Navy, the United States Marine Corps went to seag this time not to
hang in the rigging as sharpshooters, not to sit in holds with packs
and rifles ready, but as a integral part of the Ship's Company. These
41 Marines commanded by Captain R. C. YEZZI from the nucleus of
the security element for the ship, they make up one platoon of the
ship's Landing Party, serve as the ceremonial guard for the ship and
carry out various other tasks as directed by the Commanding Officer.
At Tabonnes Harbor in the Philippines, a Shore Fire Control
Party Went in to adjust the shipls fire during an exercise. At a later
date Mount 51, which is manned by the Marine Detachment personnel,
received its "E" for the showing made at an anti-aircraft shoot.
Operation Backpack found the Detachment with many additional
dutiesg not only did they man their General Quarters Stations but they
were responsible for the operation ot the Supporting Arms Coordina-
tion Center. Many long hours Went into this successful operation.
- .,,,.i .i
Perhaps the Detachment's finest hour came with the visit of Gen-
eral Wallace M. GREENE, Commandant of the Marine Corps. At the
completion of his inspection the General praised the Detachment by
saying they Were, "one of the finest detachments afloat."

The FM Division is the missile fire control
division. Division personnel maintain and
operate the electronic equipment necessary to
acquire and track a target, compute the missile
fire control problem, and guide the missile to
The majority of the enlisted men in the
division are graduates' of Class "A" and "C"
schools and are technically qualified for the
intricate Work necessary to maintain missile
In addition to their technical qualifications,
they have shown themselves physically quali-
fied by Winning many of the inter-divisional
awards offered in various competitive areas.
All hours of the day or night you can find
FM Division personnel crawling around, into,
behind or underneath almost inaccessible
places installing little black boxes. These
boxes are important in the operation of the
fire control equipment and keep the Supply
Department on its toes trying to make the
OPTAR stretch to cover their cost.

FG Division is probably the most spread out of any
of the divisions. They live in the compartment
furtherest aft, muster forward of the turrets and man
the highest and lowest spaces on the ship, the MK
37 Director and the gunnery firecontrol plotting
Division personnel are responsible for maintaining
and operating the three different firecontrol systems,
that are used in solving gunnery firecontrol problems.
During the cruise, FG Division successfully com-
pleted shoots at targets on land, on the sea, and in
the air. The Tabonnes Gunnery Range in the
Philippines has many accurately placed pock-marks
left by GALVESTON guns which were directed by
FG Division computers and directors. A white "E"
on the side of the MK 37 director is the award for
outstanding performance in a competitive exercise.

Commander EDWARD ARTHUR SHORT was born in Cleveland, Ohio on
13 September, 1926. In 1944 he graduated from Lakewood High School,
where he was named to the National Honor Society. He attended Tulane
University and in 1947 received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics
and a Commission in the United States Navy through the NROTC program.
In 1961 he obtained a Master of Science Degree in the Operational Analysis
Curriculum from the United States Naval Post Graduate School, Monterey,
Commander Short has had a broad and interesting Naval career. He served
aboard such commands as the USS UNION QAKA 106j, the USS PALAU
QCVE 122j, and he has been Administration Ofhcer at the U.S. Naval Com-
munications Station, Guam. In March 1963, Commander Short became the
Executive Oflficer ofthe USS TERCEL CAMS 3861 He subsequently received
orders as Commanding Othcer ofthe USS PILOT QMSE 104j. He then went
to Vanderbilt University as a Navigation and Marine Engineering Instructor
in the NROTC Program. In Iuly 1957 he became Executive Oflicer of the
E.lNI. ROBINSON QDE ZUQ. Prior to coming to the OALVESTON, in June
1963, to head the Operations Department, Commander Short was a CIC Test
and Evaluation Tacitcal Data System Ofhcer on the Pacific Staff of Commander
Operational Test and Evaluation Eorce.
Commander Short presently resides at 4371 Chelford Street in San Diego
with his wife lVIarie and two daughters, Cynthia Q13j and Marcia Eor
recreation Commander Short enjoys golf and bowling.
Detection, display, evaluation and dissemination
are functions of the Radar Gang. OI Division, whose
home, CIC fCombat or jokingly called the Bogey
Lockerj, is constantly on the job manning the Nerve
Center of the ship. In every evolution, the radar
gang plays some part.
W7hen getting underway, before the last line is
on deck, COMBAT has prepared for the forth-
coming operations by getting status boards and DRT
VVhen the "Galloping Gal" shifts colors, Combat
radar navigates to open seas.
Underway, the mole people track surface and air
contacts and keep the Captain informed of possible
Radio talkers who chatter quietly between ships
help to determine the intentions of the OTC.
When joining up with the other ships of the for-
mation, Combat makes course and speed recom-
mendations for a smooth rendezvous.
Along with all this, during the six months cruise,
OI managed to participate in many inter-divisional
Competitions. Deck Tennis, Softball, Bowling and
Basketball in Yokosuka, fwhere the OI Division Of-
ficer lost a tooth getting too close to the actionj
In addition they have the only Rock and Roll Combo

The men of OL Division are the lookouts of
GALVESTON while at sea, from high on the 05 level,
an alert team of four men keep the ofhcer of the deck in-
formed of surface and air contacts.
OL Division has one of the largest fin areaj main-
tenance spaces on the ship and plenty of hard work is
required to keep it shipshape.
Keen competition and hard work at play have kept
OL Division in a close race for lst place in the

The OE Division is comprised ofa group of highly
skilled Electronic Technicians, a handful of seaman,
and a yeoman. This group is under the direction
of LCDR Carl D. BUSH, the EMO, and LTIG
William E. DASINGER, the Division Officer.
The Division's primary task is the repair of equip-
ment such as the air and surface search radars, re-
peaters, radio receivers and transmitters, and navi-
gational aids such as Tacan, Loran, and a fathometer.
i Although repair is their major concern, they are
involved in a constant and vigorous program of main-
tenance Which is carried out at all times. During
upkeep periods in port this program is stepped up
considerably to ensure that the equipment is at the
peak performance level which a ship of GALVES-
TON,s caliber and importance in Heet operations
One of the most noteworthy incidents of the cruise
was the "marathon of the missing messagesi' in which
OE Division scored a decisive victory and celebrated
the occasion by consuming a steak dinner. The
Radio Officer was only too glad to foot the bill of
Although the work load does not allow much time
for participation in the inter-division sports competi-
tion, OE fought its way to the finals in Deck Tennis
and walked away with the enlisted championship in
the Pinochle Tournament.

The men of the CR Division operate the equip-
ment and process the intelligence necessary to
provide the ship and flag with instantaneous con-
tact with any command in the Naval Establish-
ment night and day, in port or at sea, they maintain
communications with other ships, shore stations
Behind the "Exclusion Arean sign on the door
to Radio Central is the nerve center of the ship.
It is there that the shipboard communications
equipment is coordinated to establish voice, radio-
telegraph, and radioteletype circuits and to patch
them to the many remote keying positions
throughout the ship. This equipment includes
the antennas located in the superstructure and the
transmitters, receivers and associated gear in the
five radio spaces scattered from the top of the
missile house to the second deck forward.
In addition to normal message traliic, the
radiomen furnish hydrographic aids to navigation,
weather information and facsimile weather maps.
At sea, press broadcasts are copied to collect
news for the GALVESTON STAR.
With all this activity, the radiomen have still
found time to distinguish themselves in the area
of personnel improvement and advancement
during the cruise. JOHNSON, Leroy Ir., RM3
was awarded the coveted COMCRUDESPAC
Speed Key Certificate by Captain RUDDEN.
This award is given for passing a test of sending
and receiving code at the rate of 30 words per
minute with accuracy.
The work of the radiomen was varied and the
hours were long but they have the satisfaction
of knowing that they played a vital role in the
success of GALVESTON during the cruise.

Somewhat a newcomer to the GALVESTON, naval vessels are by no means
new to LT Thomas. His arrival brings more than 15 years of naval service and
experience on board. He began his naval career shortly after graduating from
Marshall High School, Marshall, Texas, in 1947. During the 10 years that follow-
ed, he served with various aviation electronics units in the CONUS and Pacific.
In August, 1958, LT Thomas graduated from Officer Candidate School QOCSD,
Newport, Rhode Island. His first duty assignment following his commission was
the USS BRISTOL QDD-857j, out of Newport. Aboard BRISTOL for three
years, he served as Communications Ofhcer, CIC Officer, Electronics Material
Oflicer, and during his last year aboard, Gunnery Officer.
Reporting to shore duty in September, 1961, LT Thomas returned to OCS,
Newport. As an instructor in the Operations Department, he saw over 400 of his
students graduate from OCS with commissions.
On 11 October, 1963, LT Thomas reported aboard GALVESTON for duty as
Communications Officer. In addition to performing duties as department head,
he is a qualified Oflicer of the Deck Underway.
LT Thomas and his wife, Vera, are the parents of two sons: Charles, eight years
of age, and Lawrence, six. The Thomas family resides at 2882 Luna Avenue,
San Diego, California.

Signal CS Division
The Signal Bridge, located on the 04 level in the upper
regions of the superstructure,is the nest of a strange
group of birds who are called the Signal Gang or some-
times the "Skivvy Waversn. They have an alert watch
on duty 24 hours a day in port or at sea, and their pri-
mary job is to communicate with ships in visual range.
One might look up from the main deck any time and
see one of them "Flapping his VVings,' in a seemingly
wild and grotesque manner. He might or might not
be hokhng alnighdy'cokned Hag nieach hand. But,
if you look in the direction he is facing, you will usually
see another bird watching him intently and then wav-
ing wildly back in answer.
This "Skivvy VVaving" is only one of the methods
used to communicate with other ships. They also talk
with the signal lights, yard-arm blinkers, and during
multiship operations, they send vital signals by means
of the signal hoists.
The Signal Gang is led by LTIG DAVEY and Chief
HUGHES. They operate two signal lights on second-
ary conn, four lights on the signal bridge, two lights on
the 05 level, and two 24 inch searchlights. During
some of our operations, all of the signal lights are busy

Born in the Kentucky hills, LCDR BOWEN launched his naval career upon
graduation from the Naval Academy in 1951. Prior to reporting to GALVESTON
ME RICHARD, USS TURNER
the USS LINCOLN COUNTY as
in 1962, he served aboard the USS BON HOM
as Navigator and Chief Engineer, and
In his capacity as Chief Engineer aboard GALVESTON, Mr. BOWEN, or
"Steely Eyed BOVVENH as he is sometimes referred to, has utilized his knowled-
gable background and steadfastness to organize a polished engineering team.
His congeniality and wit has been the springboard from which the departmentis
intership public relations has flourished.
During this cruise, the engineering department has prospered under the
cognizance of our able leader. From the 54,000 horsepower main engines to the
"gedunk'sU ice cream machines, the Chief Snipe's watchful eye has guided the
maintenance and operation of the machinery necessary for the answering of all
bells at all times.
Mr. BOWEN has a wife, "FLO,' and 3 "Spitting" images, Iimmy, John, and
Ioe. Supplementing his family interests and military duties, the Chief Engineerls
enthusiasm has most recently been captivated by the ravishing sounds in
stereophonic-from Mendelssohn to Mitch MILLER. Other interests are hunting
Qwild gamej, fishing, and an occasional engineering luncheon.
Auxiliary GAY Division
The "A" Division is composed of lVlachinist's Mates,
Machinery Repairmen, Enginemen and Firemen. They
are responsible for the repair, maintenance and upkeep
of all Engineering Department equipment outside of the
main machinery spaces except the electrical, piping and
ventilation systems. This equipment is scattered from
bow to stern and from the bilges to the top of the pilot
The division is also responsible for the distilling of all
potable water used aboard ship while underway, all feed
water used in the boilers, maintenance and repair of
refrigerators, air conditioning units, diesel engines fin-
cluding the boat enginesj and the after steering, machine
shop and emergency pump room equipment.
"A" Division contributes greatly to the health, comfort
and morale of the crew by keeping the galley, laundry and
soda fountain equipment and the ice making machines
One service rendered by division personnel, often taken
for granted by all hands, is the maintenance of ap-
proximately forty scuttlebuts throughout the ship which
put forth, at the touch of a finger, good cold water to
quench the thirst of the crew.

Boiler GGB9' Division
Since "Hero" first derived mechanical work from steam,
boilers have replaced galley slaves and sails as the primary
source of power on NAVY ships.
On GALVESTON, all propulsion engines, ship's primary
generators and heating plants are operated by steam. Steam
for these and other miscellaneous auxiliary services is made
in four eighty-eight ton boilers. These boilers and the turbo-
generators are operated by the "B" Division personnel.
"B" Division is the largest division in the Engineering
Department and is divided into four major groups: the Forward
Fireroom Crew, the After Fireroom Crew, the Generator
Gang and the Oil Lab Personnel.
The forward and after hrerooms each have two of the ship's
boilers. When at sea, five men are on duty around the clock
at each steaming boiler. These boilers are many times more
powerful than merchant marine boilers, and much more
complicated. They require the constant attention of an alert
well trained crew.
The generator gang, is responsible for the "steam ends"
of the ship's four service turbo-generators and the auxiliary
plants which are necessary for running them.
The men of the oil lab are responsible for the half million
gallons of water and fuel oil which are necessary for the shipis
personnel and equipment. They test and treat boiler and
drinking water, shift liquid cargo to maintain the ship's proper
trim, and are essential in the complex job of fueling the
GALVESTON while at sea.

Maintaining the life line of any "man of warn is a
job which demands the skill of adept technicians. In
this case: the life line, electric powerg the man of war,
GALVESTONg and the capable technicians, men of
"E" or "Echo,', signifying Electrical Division, is one
of the five Engineering Divisions and is manned by
two equally vital ratings - the Electrician's Mates and
the Interior Communications Electricians. These men
function as the all-important team which keeps
GALVESTON's lights burning and motors running.
From the smallest buzzer in the Admiral's Cabin to
the huge dynamos in the iirerooms, when things go
wrong, "E" Division men are on the job. The re-
sponsibility of insuring the proper performance of over
1,000 units of rotating electrical equipment, maintaining,
replacing and installing all the lighting and ventilation
which serves every space on GALVESTON, and in-
suring the correct source voltages to the two main and
two emergency switehboards falls on their shoulders.
The power available at the two switchboards is suf-
ficient to meet the electrical requirements of a city of
about 5,000 persons. From these switchboards it
is possible to control the distribution of power to all
parts of the ship as needed.
The ship's internal communication system, gyros,
automatic degaussing systeng, as well as the necessary
amplifiers and the morale boosting movie program round
out the primary areas of responsibility of "E" Division.

The Oflicer of the Deck decides what speed is required
of the ship to meet the current situation and passes it to
the engine room via the Engine Order TelegraphfE.O.T.j.
In the Enginerooms, throttlemen answer up on the E.O.T.
and change throttle valves accordingly. The 600 pound
SSOT steam that Hows into the big Generallilectrie turbines
is converted into work as it expands through the tur-
bines. These turbines drive the reduction gears that
turn massive screw propellers which in turn move us
through the water.
In the Enginerooms M Division personnel, under
LTIG DRAPER, MPA and M Division Oflicer, operate
and maintain the Main Engines and associated equip-
ment. To them belong the HP and LP turbines, main
reduction gear, shafts, shaft alleys, and stern tubes.
Main condensers, which convert the exhausted steam
from the HP and LP turbines into feed water, are a re-
sponsibility of M Division personnel. They operate and
maintain the condensate pumps, air ejectors, deaerating
feed tanks and main feed booster pumps. M Division air
compressors supply compressed air to the ship. Their
emergency evaporator distills potable water to drink,
cook, and wash with.
The men of M Division serve the ship with motive
power, air and water, twenty-four hours a day.

"R" Division is responsible for hull repairs, upkeep of damage control
equipment, repair work for other divisions and carpenter work. The division
maintains four separate work gangs, the metalsmitlis, pipefitters, damage
control repairmen, and the carpenters. Each gang is divided into two
segments, the shop crew and the Held crew.
During the past six months, they have, among other things, fabricated an
entirely new space aboard ship fthe Admiral's Sea Cabinj, installed air con-
ditioning units, assisted in the redecoration of the Wardroom, the First Class
Petty OHicer's Mess, and several staterooms, repaired ship's boats and made
a new status board for the Quarterdeck.
"R" Division maintains a watch in Damage Control Central and has a
sounding and security patrol on duty at all times.
During General Quarters, "RH Division personnel are stationed in one of
the damage control repair parties or in Damage Control Central, the nerve
center for battle damage and repair information. Their job is to help
investigate, control, minimize and repair possible damage to the ship during
an emergency. The "RH Division is composed of professional men who
regard their role in the efhcient and safe operation of GALVESTON a
matter of personal and professional pride.

LCDR VV. F. Mitchell, Supply Officer of the USS
Galveston had an a typical early life. He was born in
the German Zepplin, Hinderberg, over the Atlantic in
a fierce Winter storm. The proud parents, Count and
Countess Von Krutstadt, later changed their name to
"Mitchell" in order to escape the war crimes trials.
The Second World War found young Mitchell in
Corrigedor fighting as a thirteen year old Japanese Fifth
Column agent. Years later during the Korean Con-
flict he earned fame as "Whaleboat Mitchell" because
his whaleboat never missed a liberty call for lack of
repair parts. In order to add a little color to his life
he entered the Naval Acedemy and was graduated in
the class of 1951.
After supply school he served as assistant supply of-
ficer ofthe USS Tortuga, LSD-265 supply ofiicer ofthe
USS Brush DD-745, Special Weapons Spare Parts
0Hicer, Lake Mead Base, Los Vegas, Commissary Of-
ficer, US Naval Station, Guam, MI. Between Iune 1959
and June 1962 he served as instructor and Branch Head
of the Disbursing Department at the Supply Corps
School, This tour was followed by a year at the Naval
Post Graduate School at Monterey Where he Won a
Master's degree in Management.
Mr. Mitchell was married on the 22 October 1954 and
has three children: Betsy 8, Lori 6, and Peter 4.
He is an avid Sportsman fhis favorite sports being:
golf, body surfing, and volleyballj
"Not since 1940, have so few done so much
for so many." The "So Few" are the sailors
of the S-1 Division. The S-1 Division is led
by LTJG John HALE.
GALVESTON's primary mission is to engage
the enemy in combat. To be ready to do this
the weapons systems, complex electronics gear,
engines and other equipment must all be func-
tioning and functioning well. Repair parts are
essential to proper functioning of all of these
things. Without repair part support, the ship
could not carry out its mission. The S-1
Division provides the repair parts for the ship
and does the job well. Ninety-eight percent of
the demands placed upon S-1 Division's al-
lowed stores have been met. That record can-
not be achieved by many, if any, supply activities
ashore or afioat.
GALVESTON is ready to do her job. A
large part of her readiness is a result of the ex-
ceptional service and repair part support pro-
vided by the "So Few".

44The Sailor's Delight"
Different types of ships have different jobs to perform.
But, Whether they are ships of the line, auxiliaries or
what have you, they all have one thing in common. They
are all run by men and men have to be fed.
It has been discovered that in all men on board, from
the Captain down to the lowest Seaman apprentice,
there is a reoccurring spasm at aeast three times a day.
Sustaining life is only a by-product of the versatile
Commissary Division. The crew's morale and ex-
pectations are fostered by a menu planning ltoard using
scientific frequency charts and graphs. Combinations
are formed employing the full range of some 700 Navy-
Marine recipes and 68 salad bar combinations.
The Commissarymen of the GALVESTON are a
group of highly skilled and trained men.
The Comrrissary Division is happy to play an im-
portant role in the readiness of the Navy,s finest ship.

The Tailoring Establishment is not quite
ready to compete with James S. Lee and Co. of
Hong Kong, but only because of a limitation of
facilities. Tailoring service includes altera-
tions and minor repairs.
Daily laundry service is the result of the de-
dicated efforts of the GALVESTON Laundry
Company. The shipis laundrymen work around
the Clock to ensure that the crew always has
fresh uniforms and that the oflicers and chiefs
are looking their best in well pressed starched
shirts and trousers. This is no easy feat.

You have heard much about morale. When your
spirit is high, when you are feeling iine, when you are
doing a good job and Want to do a better one - that IS
morale. One sure way to help build morale among Navy
men is to give them tasty well-balanced and attractively
That is why S-5 Division headed by Ensign D. A.
KRUGER, is one of the most important Divisions aboard
GALVESTON. The ship's officers are customers of
the Steward Division and since the oliicers are in charge
of the ship, the Stewards are key figures behind the
success and happiness of the whole ship's company.
Besides the tasks of purchasing, preparing and serving
the food for the Oflicers' Mess, S-5 Division is responsible
for the cleanliness and preservation of the Galley, the
Pantry, The W'ardroom, Storerooms, Staterooms and the
passageways connecting these spaces.
One of the high points of the cruise for twenty-one of
the men in the division was a leave period during which
they were reunited with loved ones in the Philippines.
Early in the cruise, S-5 Division also won the
GALVESTON plaque for having the best colfcc aboard

Dr. Dunn was born in Los Angeles, California where he attended school through
his undergraduate college years. Those of you from Los Angeles may be interest-
ed to know that he attended Alpine Elementary and Atwater Schools. Junior high
schools were just becoming popular. It was possible to elect to stay in the eight
year primary school or to change to the new junior high system. The latter is
what he chose, and attended Washington Irving Junior High School as part of the
first group to start school in the then not-quite-completed buildings.
Upon graduation, he proceeded to John Marshall High School where he com-
peted on the Gymnastics Team, earning his varisty letter and on the Debating
Team, while pursuing a college-preparatory course.
World War II commenced but Dr. Dunn started the University of Southern
California in a pre-medicine course. He became old enough to enlist while in
his first semester in Naval Reserve V-12, a training program. He was called into
uniform and the members organized into companies and assigned to barracks, on
July 1, 1943. He found time to again compete in gymnastics and earned two
Completing the three years of pre-medicine, he was ordered to Naval Training
Center, San Diego, where he served as a dental assistant in Naval Reserve V-6.
In late 1944, Apprentice Seaman Dunn was ordered to the University of Min-
nesota, School of Dentistry. In 1945, after one and one-quarter years in dental
school, the war over, Naval Reserve V-12 was disestablished and inactive duty
Dr. Dunn in 1946 received his inactive duty commission as Ensign, HVP. Two
years later, married just before starting his final academic quarter to the former
Joanne Norton, he received his Lieutenant junior grade commission upon gradua-
tion June 12, 1948.
After taking his California State Dental Board Examination, he requested active
duty orders and reported to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego, for duty.
Other duty orders have sent him and his family to the island of Saipan, to
Sangley Point, Philippines, Treasure Island-San Francisco, Mare Island, Moffett
Field, USS Hancock CVA-19, and Washington, D.C.
That family includes two sons aged 9 and 11, and a daughter, 7 who, together
with Dr. and Mrs. Dunn live in the pleasant community of Bonita, near San Diego.
LIEUTENANT SALOT was born in Irkhusk, Russia in 1934, the son of a Saudi Arabian
chieftain and his Eurasian bride. At the age of three, Salot was smuggled out of
the clutches of the Soviets following one of the bloody purges of this period.
Residing in Berlin, the young lad's knowledge of six languages served him in good
stead as one of the key agents for the O.S.S. during WW II. The close of the
conflict found Salot a candidate for college at the age of 12. The following years
were distinguished by brilliant achievements in theoretical physics, mathematics,
and philosophy at the Universities of Oxford, Uppsala, Heidelberg, and Milan.
Armed with PhD's in these disciplines, Salot became a top-ranking economic
advisor to the President of Brazil, during this period, having access to important
changes in the price of coffee beans, he was able to accumulate a fortune of several
billion pesos. This money, placed in various Swiss banks, has allowed Salot fre-
edom of movement and thought, as well as making him one of the world's great
philanthropists. In addition, his continuing scientific work at the Institute for
Advanced Studies in Princeton has been of considerable importance. His Navy
career began in 1963, when, on a business trip to San Diego, he was set upon by
a group of men, bound with line and placed in a large bag. When he awoke, he
was aboard the USS Galveston on her WESTPAC deployment. Having always
had a passing interest in the healing arts, he struck for corpsman. By prodigious
efforts he was able to advance in rate from SN to Medical Oflicer in less than six
months. His future plans are indefinite, but include the study of the physical
properties of bodies immersed in hot water.
From the very beginning of the Navy it has been
necessary to make provisions for the care of the sick and
injured. An act of Congress in 1799 provided that "A
convenient place shall be set apart for the sick and hurt
men, to which they are to be removed, and some ofthe
crew shall be appointed to attend them." In 1814, Navy
regulations referred to the "Loblolly boysn who served
the Surgeon in this capacity.
Surgical team has been frequently utilized, both for
emergency and routine procedures. Two appendec-
tomies were performed in one night, a challenge which
put great demands on the entire department.
The Pharmacy is stocked with almost every drug on
the Navy list. The Laboratory can handle a variety of
diagnostic tests, and the X-ray unit is capable of all
routine studies. The Medical Department maintains
all stretchers, first aid boxes and battle dressing stations
throughout the ship.
This complex mission requires from each member of
the Hospital Corps a versatility neither demanded nor
expected of other enlisted ratings in the Navy. The
primary mission of the Hospital Corps is to keep as
many men at as many guns as many days as possible.
VVherever you find the Navy, wherever you find the
Marine Corps, there you will find the Navy Hospital

"No military or naval force can accomplish anyth-
ing worthwhile unless there is in back of it the work
of an eflicient, loyal, and devoted staff." This quota-
tion from the HSchool of the Citizen Sailorn essential-
ly expresses the reason for the existence of a Flag
Division. The primary objective of the division is
to assist the Flotilla Commander in his duties and
responsibilites. Ten oHicers and forty-three men,
including Yeoman, Quartermasters, Radiomen,
Signalmen, Radarmen, Boatswain Mates, Sonarmen,
Stewards, and Marines, compose the staff
Cruiser-Destroyer Flotilla Nine was formed on 1
September 1961 when Destroyer Squadrons One and
Twenty-One, and Cruiser Division Three combined
to form the single organization. Since then the
Commander and his staff have lived up to its motto
of "On the Moven by making seventeen moves in
nineteen months. The USS OKLAHOMA CITY
