Late in January, -the GEARING resumed her tour with the Sixth Fleet, visiting Iskende run and Izmir, Turkey. Duringthe summer of 1958 the GEARING took part in the combined Midshipman-FleetExercjfse Cruise to Northern Europe.

The medal was presented to Lawrence W. Beckhaus, GM2, UsN, by RADM John C. Daniel, USN, then Commander, Destroyer Force, Atlan- tic Fleet, in ceremonies aboard Uss Salamonie CAO 261. The award, one of the highest peacetime awards given in the Navy, was presented to Beckhaus for his daring rescue of George D. Schack, SN, USN, who was swept overboard from the destroyer Uss Gearing CDD 7101. The incident occurred while Salamonie was performing emer- gency refueling of Gearing off the coast of Spain during an Atlantic stonn. Schack, engaged in iettisoning loose gear to lighten the destroyer, in danger owing to heavy weather to bring him alongside, but was un- able to turn sharply enough to get the victim to leeward, and drifted away from the tiring man. Salamonie turned into the wind for a second approach and was suc- cessfully maneuvered to the wind- ward side of the man. Meanwhile, more than 30 lookouts kept Schack in sight. The heavy seas and 60-knot winds made it impossible to lower a life- boat. Beckaus, with the permission of his commanding oflicer, dived over the side. After a 10-minute swim the gunner's mate reached the exhausted but still conscious seaman. With the tanker rolling' as much as 25 degrees in the trough, Salamonie's crew heaved the line in. Both men came on board simultaneously as the oiler took a huge wave that swamped the well deck. Schack was found uninjured, but was sent to sick bay for shock treat- N82-OA , ......v......,,.........., W,..., WT. 4. -7,- '-. f-1 . ,-.Q .1. .fs i if -E' 'a .33 Simi- BT . - - ' ED . - - ' , QONNENG .

The industry of the peoples of the Lowland Countries is much in evidence in one of Northern Europe's most important shipping ports, Antwerp, Belgium. Here was a city which had savored the beauty of the art of Rubens --- but also a city which had heard the grim marching of many of History's armies. Antwerp lies far up the Scheldt River, and if anything characterizes her, it is the many river craft which ply back and forth loaded down with the traffic of Northern Europe. Ask any GEARING sailor to tell you about the peek into the future that he got at the "Expo" of 1958. The Brussels World's Fair was the opportunity of a lifetime to see the exhibits of what many of the world's leading nations consider important. It will be a long time before we are able to end another cruise in such an atmosphere of International achievement. I w .
