Harold Edward Holt was elected Prime Minister of Australia on 20 January 1966 and held office until his tragic drowning on 17 December 1967. Prime Minister Holt was a staunch anti-communist and an avid supporter of the United States. His memory serves as a symbol of the friendship and coo- peration which exists between Australia and the United States. The mission of the HOLT is to conduct prompt and sustained combat operations at sea, worldwide, in support of national inter- ests. She normally serves as part of a Battle Group, Amphibious Group, Underway Re- plenishment Group or Convoy. HAROLD E. HOLT is especially capable of acting offen- sively or defensively against enemy subma- rines. HOLT is part of the Surface Force, United States Pacific Fleet, and is homeported in historic Pearl Harbor as a member of De- stroyer Squadron THIRTY-FIVE. HOLT'S history includes the reclamation of the con- tainership SS MAYAGUEZ in May of 1975. MAYAGUEZ was Seized by the Cambodians and the crew was held captive. HOLT boarded the MAYAGUEZ and, together with other Navy and Marine units, repatriated the crew.
