NUGENT, JR., USN Destroyer Division 122, embarked aboard USS GARCIA, was composed of a small group of individuals who directed the overall operations of USS GARCIA, USS MCDONNELL, and USS FISKE during the deployment. Commodore Nugent ' s adroit marksmanship reached its peak during " The USS EDWARD MCDONNELL Memorial Trash Streaming Event " on the way home. Ens. Paarlberg is best remembered as the Staff member who never slept -- " Mr. Paarlberg, lay to the Bridge! " Mr. Eggeling, Dartmouth ' s football scout, and Mr. Fischer, undoubt- edly the Navy ' s hardest working Staff Officer, spent their spare time breaking in Drs. Di Bona and Brooks as radar operators and Staff Movie Watch Officers. Dr. Brooks distinguished BBK himself as potentially the worst slosh player in the Free World, literally losing his pants in a trying effort. RM2 Burks. SD3 McCants, and YN2 Weaver rounded out the 122 Staff, and their efforts and exploits aboard GARCIA will be long remembered. LT E. B. FISCHER LTJG W. S. EGGELING ENS R. L. PAARLBERG LT R. H.

He spent nearly 18 months aboard the GARCIA as the ship ' s X.O. His most memorable moment as navigator was no doubt his last, witnessing the sail boat with the two topless Danish lasses who caused the ship to have a 38 degree star- board list as we entered Copenhagen harbor. «t 1 I I do the Navigating around here and I ' ll leave the paperwork for my relief! I ' ve got to fix this thing before Roth gets back on the Bridge. USN Lieutenant Commander Clark reported aboard the GARCIA in Copenhagen and was privileged to navigate the ship through such perilous waters as The Rosyth Bridge, The Arctic Ocean, The Mined Waters of The Gulf of Fin- land and the sailboat infested waters of the Kattegat and Skaggerak. " This paperwork is thing else. " some- I ' ve got to remember where I put my hat. I ' m not going to Quarters again without it. It ' s the seventh one I ' ve lost in two weeks.
