The first GALVESTON was a wooden brig built in Baltimore in 1840 for the Texas Navy. She was 110 feet long and carried 14 cannon. The two-masted sailifig ship saw action during Texas ' war with Mexico, engag- ing sailing ships and steam vessels of the Mexican Navy and making sorties and landings along the Mexican coast. Often the Mexicans had larger guns, 42 pounders in some cases, as well as the first explosive shot as opposed to the older solid shot. The steam vessels had a large maneuver- ing advantage over the older sailing ship. Despite these disadvantages, GALVESTON always got the best of her opponeyUs. In 1846 GALVESTON became part of the U.S. Navy. In 1848, after having her name changed, she was sold for $400,000. The second GALVESTON was a third class cruiser built in 1903. The small cruiser (pictured here) saw duty in both the Atlantic and Pacific fleets and was part of the U.S. Navy in World War I. At various times she was employed as a convoy escort ship or a: a part of the old China Fleet. H T - ,■, " • ' . " ? I 1 fl P ' :?!fc: USS GALVESTON (CLG3) is something of a rarity in the Pacific Fleet--the guided missile Hght cruiser has spent ahnost as much time in Atlantic and Mediterranean waters as she has in the Western Pacific since moving to San Diego in 1962. The cruiser " that just can ' t stay away from the Atlantic " returned November 9, 1969, from her second tour with the U.S. Si.xth Fleet in the Mediterranean. In her return from the Atlantic, she transitted the Panama Canal for the fifth time since she was commissioned in 1958 at Philadelphia. It was a bright, clear spring morning in San Diego on April 9, just over two months from the day she returned from an abbreviated WESTPAC cruise, when (;. ' FVESTON took in all lines and got underway for the first leg of her journey to the Mediterranean and the second part of a two-ocean cruise. After transitting the Panama Canal the ship paid a weekend visit to her namesake city, Galveston, Te.xas, then stopped briefly in Norfolk, Virginia, to embark Commander Cruiser Destroyer Motilla Eight and his staff. The ship served as flagship for the flotilla and Task Group 60.2 during her stay in the Mediterranean. GALVESTON served as another kind of flag- ship, too. Designated the official Mediterra- nean flagship of San Diego ' s 2()0th anniver- sary celebration, she displayed the yellow and orange flag of the city ' s bicentennial on her quarterdeck in every port she visited. Special plaques, combining GALVESTON ' s seal with the San Diego 2()0th crest, were presented to the mayors of American and Spanish cities GALVESTON visited. While " on loan " to the Si.xth Meet in the Mediterranean, GALVESTON visited ports in six countries giving her crew of about 1,000 officers and men the opportunity to contrast the rehcs of old Greece with modern downtown Athens; to enjoy the sun and sand of the French Riviera at Villefranche; or to sightsee in Barcelona, Spain. Galvestonians mingled with tourists from almost every Western European country while they were in Palma, Mallorca, and they also toured the historical island of Malta. Naples and Taranto were the Italian ports on GAL- VESTON ' S itinerary, and many crewmembers took advantage of Naples ' proximity to Rome by visiting the Eternal City. The third cruiser USS GAL VESTON (left) is the first of a new fleet of Talos-missile- carrying ships to hit the high seas for the Navy. Shown at the Naval shipyard in Philadelphia, the sleek " Texas beauty " is armed with the deadly Talos missile. Con- struction of the new GALVESTON was suspended in 1946 and she was placed in reserve status the next year. The ship was not commissioned until May 1958. On March 24. 1905, the second USS GALVESTON was presented a silver service set (below) by her namesake city in Texas. This set was displayed on the ship until she was decommissioned in 1930. It was returned to the city upon decommissioning. Thirty years later, in January 1960, GALVESTON again received the silver service set when she visited the Texas port city as (CLG3). Soudha Bay, Crete, and Argostoli, Greece, were two island anchorages visited for a few days of rest and ship ' s upkeep. Rota, on Spain ' s Atlantic coast, was both the first and last port GALVESTON visited as a unit of the Sixth Fleet. Rota was the point where she assumed her duties as a member of the fleet and the port where GALVESTON rendez- voused with USS Columbus (CGI 2), the cruiser that assumed GALVESTON ' s duties when she left the Mediterranean to return to t he United States. Not all of GALVESTON ' S time was spent in port, however. During the seven month deployment, the 6 10- foot warship steamed over 48,000 miles, roughly equivalent to 2 1 3 times around the world. She participated in several exercises with the Sixth Fleet as well as two NATO exercises. Underway replenishments were also a regular occurrence during GALVESTON ' s stay in U ' ' ' W the Mediterranean. The Sixth Fleet is a completely mobile force, operating without any permanent shore bases in the Mediterra- nean. All refueling and replenishing was done at sea using highlines strung between ships, or helicopters with cargo nets slung under- ■ neath for transferring supplies. Galveston ' s men were old hands at underway replenishments (UNREPS) by the time they joined the Sixth Fleet, however. They had plenty of practice replenishing at sea in the Western Pacific during the first half of the two-ocean cruise. The double cruise began on October 17, 1968, when GALVESTON left San Diego for her third Western Pacific deployment. The crew fully expected a normal tour of seven months in the Pacific, but the word was passed on the morning of November 4, after she left Pearl Harbor, that she was scheduled to return to San Diego early in February to redeploy two months later to the Mediterranean. Before then, however, there was a job to be done. Providing gunfire support along the coast of South Vietnam, GALVESTON aided major offensives by the South Korean Second Marine Brigade and the U.S. First Marine Division near DaNang. In round-the-clock operations GAL- VESTON fired over 4,000 rounds of ammu- nition in a two week period during November. Later in the deployment GALVESTON illus- trated her versatility as an electronics detec- tion and tracking unit in the Gulf of Tonkin where she successfully tested new equipment that provided the basis for fleet-wide installation. Hawaii, the Philippines, Japan and Hong Kong were included as ports-of-call before she returned to San Diego in February to prepare for the second leg of her cruise - the Mediterranean deployment. USS GALVESTON ' S keel was laid February 20, 1944, by the William Cramp Shipbuilding Company of Philadelphia. The ship was caught in the general demobilization plan following World War II, and did not become fully equipped until she became the Navy ' s first Talos ship nine years later. In the conversion to a guided missile cruiser GALVESTON re- tained two 6 " gun turrets and three 5 " mounts, giving her one of the most capable and versa- tile weapons systems in the surface Navy. She was commissioned and joined the fleet as CLG-3onMay 28, 1958. The light cruiser GALVESTON was originally intended to fight in WW II. Work progressed on hull CL93 through the early 40 ' s before construction was stopped after the war ended. Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, 1958 In subsequent shakedown trials and re- fresher training near Norfolk and Guantanamo Bay Cuba, GALVESTON successfully fired the Talcs missile at sea for the first time in February, 1959, and in October she extended the anti-air warfare capability of the fleet by demonstrating that Talos could be transferred between ships at sea. The Talos guided missile, made under contract for the Navy by the missile section of the Bendi.x Aviation Corporation at Mish- awaka, Indiana, is at present the Navy ' s longest-range surface-to-air missile. It can destroy enemy aircraft at stratospheric altitudes, and has a range of more than 65 miles. The Talos has been called the " best (anti-aircraft) missile in any arsenal in the world. " During June and July, 1961, GALVESTON proved the capabilities of the Talos by break- ing several of her own missile success records and completed a salvo shot - two missiles 10 fired one second apart. iK " Long Beach Naval Shipyard, 1968 In July 1962, GALVESTON departed Phila- delphia enroute to her new homeport of San Diego, California, and in October de- ployed to the Western Pacific for her maiden six-month cruise. She set and broke several replenishment records and won three gunnery " E ' s " in competitive exercises held off Okinawa. She set sail from San Diego for her second WESTPAC deployment in June 1965. In July GALVESTON first fired her guns in anger when she supported U.S. Marines in search- and-clear operations at Chu-Lai, Republic of Vietnam. One of the first major Naval vessels involved in the Vietnam conflict, her guns became well known all along the coast of the Republic of Vietnam from the Gulf of Siam to the I Corps area near DaNang. She also conducted search and rescue opera- tions and provided air defense for the Seventh Fleet Fast Carrier Striking Group. She re- turned to San Diego in December 1965. 11 In February 1967, GALVESTON left San Diego and again passed through the Panama Canal enroute to the Atlantic Ocean where she became part of the U.S. Si.xth Fleet and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Naval Force. While in the Mediterra- nean the first time GALVESTON visited ports in France, Spain, Italy and Greece. Following an extended shipyard overhaul period in Long Beach, California, GALVES- TON spent much of the summer of 1968 in refresher training and exercises preparing for her third Western Pacific deployment, and the Mediterranean cruise which followed. Here is a record of the crew of the USS GALVESTON CLG-3.

On April 26 we arrived in Norfolk, Virginia— our last stop on American soil. Commander Cruiser Destroyer Flotilla Eight embarked during the weekend visit. GALVESTON was to serve as his flagship during most of the cruise. Our Atlantic crossing was peaceful. GALVESTON settled into a daily routine which was relatively comfortable even though it was somewhat de- manding. During the transit the ship went mto condition of readiness three— later modified con- dition three— in anticipation of the requirements of duty in the Mediterranean. The naval base at Rota, on Spain ' s Atlantic coast, was the first point we touched on the European side of the ocean. There wc rendez- voused with the Columbus, the guided missile cruiser whose duties we were to assume. She headed home and we headed through the Straits of Gibralter to join the Sixth Fleet. Serving as the flagship for Commander Cruiser- Destroyer Flotilla Eight involved different opera- tions from those in the Pacific. Operating directly with carriers and destroyers in formations, plane guarding for flight operations, supporting am- phibious exercises and actual reconnaissance mis- sions required a great deal of organizational and technical proficiency. The Sixth Fleet operating in a peacetime en- vironment is dedicated to maintaining a high level of " combat readiness. " This required drill after drill and exercise after exercise. Gunnery, missile, radar acquisition, radar tracking, combat air patrol control, formation, maneuvering board and communication exercises were but a few. Engineering casualty control and damage control drills, of course, went on below decks as they always had. 89 nATc NViNnAX iZ NVAX i9 42a_ - HVPASSAGE FROM RJTfK SPNN ro B RC£ti}N 5PAir (Day) (Datt) (Month) Ihh AM- EN »1M£5 STOP, NVQQ EO STARRqARO 5 Q£ TO N UgLLO, A005 nO, Bf RL£U Nf M P RROft R VAC£U)N , SPAlfvi 90 ■j ! « 3 i l ' m I ' ilH S w 1 B ifl l B Barcelona was our first real Mediterranean liberty port. The city, the chief industrial and most prosperous one in Spain, is typically European with its narrow, winding streets in the old quarter and handsome boulevards in the modern part. Both the city and the people had a particular charm that isn ' t found outside of Spain. The unique Spanish charm of Barcelona was as captivating by night as day. It was hard to turn your back on the beauty of the city as the wee hours of the morning approached and it became time to return to the ship. 93 Captain Pettitt held his last personnel inspection of Galveston ' s crew pierside at Barcelona. imz IN SJOROfKHCE W rH dOPtRb OR0m5 HO f8lE. 5, CAPTAtN 3A.rv £5 W fW)fMT60N RY 3«3S 43Xhqo KEUBved CAPTAiM ROBERT B.

The 17 mile long island, sometimes referred to as the " crossroads of the Mediterranean " offered much of interest to the shutterbugs and history buffs from GALVESTON. The scenic rocky ter- rain is rich in history as the islands ' soil has been trampled and traded by many different European, Asian and African crowns, governments and empires. r- ■- - ' - ' Trr— - 96 I ' he former Crown Colony— now a member of the British Common- wealth—provided interesting tours, beaches for division parties, and a pleasant interlude to monotonous days at sea. 97 98 " ' I u fili - ■ mini r • ».

One of the most noticeable differences was the changed at sea in port ratio. Instead of the pattern of long stretches on the gunline or on patrol station followed by a liberty port visit, our Mediterranean operating schedule alternated between port visits and at sea periods of nearly the same length. The ports seemed to come and go more quickly than they did in the Pacific. GALVESTON supported three different carriers while in the Mediterranean. jP J- ■ 101 Our never-ending training cycles at sea in- cluded gunnePy ' and missile exercises as a part of the Sixth Fleets constant quest for the highest state of combat readiness possible. The underwax ' replenishment is the onU ' method of resuppKing used in the Sixth Fleet. It allows the fleet to operate free of the need for shore based supph ' facilities and increases die mobilit} ' of the force. GALVESTON participated m major underway replenishments on an average of once a month. Each one was an all-hands evolution.
