' .vV m ' ' Ok CDR George Philip Jr The GEORGE PHILIP (FFG-12) is named in honor of Commander George Philip Jr., USN (1912-1945). Commander Philip assumed command of the Destroyer USS TWIGGS (DD-951) on April b, 1944 and served in her with great distinction during the liberation of the Philippine Islands, the conquest of Iowa Jima and the capture and occupation of Okinawa during World War II He was posthumously awarded the Navy Cross for extraordinary heriosm during 84 consecutive days of combat off Okinawa where he perished with his ship following a dusk attack by enemy Kamikaze aircraft on June lo, 1945. CAPT D.F. Berkebile COMMANDING OFFICER From the South Pacific to the Persian Gulf Captain Berkebile will fondly be remembered as the " Crews Captain. ' LCDR M.G. Mathis EXECUTIVE OFFICER Serving as the CO ' s right hand man, the XO handles most of the command ' s administrative work as well as functioning as the personnel manager. This unbur- dens the Captain so he may carry out the important task of commanding the ship. The XO will undoubtedly be remembered by most for his uncanny talent for finding dust in all those " He ' ll never look there ' ' places. SKCS (SW) D.K. Smith Senior Chief Of The Command As the senior enlisted member onboard Senior Chief Smith functions as the enlisted men ' s representative to the Commanding Officer, as well as advisor to the crew on command policy. He was irrefutably the " voice ' ' of the Bluejacket onboard GEORGE PHILIP. " We few, We happy few, We band of brothers. " William Shakespeare " WESTPAC " is an inevitable part of all Pacific Fleet sailors ' careers. Some associate the deployment with visits to exotic ports while others think of it in terms of family separation and the long hard hours of work it implies. For the men of GEORGE PHILIP this Westpac held at least one universal theme; it would possibly be the ship ' s last. (The GEORGE PHILIP will augment the Naval Reserve Force in January 198t ). On the morning of August 28, 1984 the crew slipped the last mooring line, blew a sigh of nervous anticipation and embarked on what proved to be an unforgetable adventure. This cruisebook is dedi- cated to the memories and spirit of USS GEORGE PHILIP ' s WESTPAC 84-85. In the years to come we hope it will invoke the warm memories we all shared during our adventure.

The Radiomen are the voice of the command providing rapid, reliable and secure communications. Processing up to 300 messages a day they are the ship ' s link with the rest of the world. Signalmen handle the tactical communica- tions between Navy units by employing more traditional means such as Flaghoist, Flashing Light and Semaphore. Quartermasters take great pride in determining the ship ' s position and maintaining a navigational track using all available means from state of the art satellite systems to bearings taken from the sun and stars. The most traditional of all ratings, the Boatswain ' s Mates or " Bos ' n ' s " , operate the ship ' s motor whaleboat, anchor and underway replenishment gear as well as performing preservation of the ship ' s hull and interior spaces. 27 Goossens " X - QMC(SW) P SMC(SW) F Harris I z n kA SMI G Waterson QM2 J Goodeyon QM3 Dodge QM3 Miller SM3 M Cooper QM3 C Longorio SM3 D King QMSN M Lange QM5N A Lien SMSA R Green SC-1 Division 28 • i I ' ■ ■ ' 29 ' 2 l •if ' 4 RM2 A Drummond RM2 T Shaffer RM2 B Quail RM3 R Waldrop RM3 K Anderson M k RM3 K Murray RMSN M Anderson RMSN E Vasquez RMSN K Kelley ■ y4 ' LTJG Sommer SC-2 Division RMC B Sablan id 11 SN C Ward SA M Boyd SA D Scalf « gjb SN B Ohare SA T Anderson ' ft - J BMl S Grant BM2 E McChessney BM3 J Mcquagge BM3 C Glover BM3 C Greene SC-3 Division LT M Morris BMC(SW) P Greene + I A LA JL AA SN J Zika SN D Richardson SN D Inocencio SA F Bond 32 SN C Donnelly BM3 H Lavalley BM3 N Holly BMSN H Peterson BMSN B Carr BMSN M Nash SN R Johnson SN J Martinez SR J Searcy SN A Espintu SR K Sandstrom SA J Dobbs 33 SA R Goodwin :, W. y LT J I Morris Support Officer X T The Support Department has the responsibility of providing and accounting for materials and funds required to operate the ship. It also provides services which contribute to the comfort, welfare and morale of the crew. It ' s members consist of Yeomen, Personnelmen, Master-at-Arms, Disbursing Clerk, Ship ' s Servicemen, Mess Management Specialists, Storekeepers, and a Hospital Corpsman. Administratively the Yeomen, Personnelmen and Master-at-Arms support the ship by keeping the never ending flow of paperwork to and from the ship moving. The ship ' s Storekeepers procure, issue and dispense materials for shipboard use as well as accounting for the ship ' s expenditures. Providing the " Finest Food In The Fleet " comes as no easy task for the Mess Management Specialists, while operating the ship ' s laundry, barber shop and store is all part of a day ' s work for the Ship ' s Servicemen. The ship ' s Corpsman handles all ailments from the common cold to the more rare case of seasickness. Probably the most closely scrutinized and most welcomed of the Support Department services is that of Disbursing. t r .
