THE SEVENTH FLEET The GEORGE CLYMER was under the operational control of the Commander Amphibious Force, United States SEVENTH Fleet from mid-July until early December. The U.S. SEVENTH Fleet, which is the world ' s largest task fleet, maintains surveillance throughout nearly one sixth of the earth ' s surface or thirty million square miles, from the Siberian coastal waters in the North to Antarctica, and from the Indian Ocean in the West to 160 degrees east longitude, a point about 1,200 miles east of the U.S. territory of Guam. Comprised of some 125 ships, 650 aircraft and 64,000 highly trained Navy and Marine Corps personnel, the SEVENTH Fleet is dispersed throughout this vast ocean area, acting as a deterrent force against enemy aggression in the Western Pacific and insuring that the sea lanes are kept open for free world trade. The Tonkin Gulf incident in early August put CLYMER in an advanced state of readiness and she was assigned special operations as a member of the ready Amphibious Group in the South China Sea as a unit of Task Force 7b. With part of Regimental Landing Team Nine (U.S. Marines) embarked she was ready to strike over the beach or go up the River to Saigon. The fact of our " presence " and our " military " capability was well known to both Vietnamese and Chinese Communists. For this operation, the ship, officers, crew and embarked Marines were awarded the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal (VIETNAM). READY POWER FOR PEACE 1
