WEMZ It has been regretted for some time that, because of Wartime restrictions, personally owned cameras are not allowed on board, and it has been impractical for the Photo Lab to attempt to furnish all hands with pictures of the places we have visited and of the many interesting, thrilling, exciting and even hair- raising experiences that we have had during this, our Hrst year as an integral, fighting part of our Fleet. Considerable thought also has been given to devising some means whereby the memories of our many experiences, and our everyday life aboard, might be preserved in a definite and concrete form, because, regardless of how anx- ious we are to get back to our families, and re- gardless of how arduous, trying, and nerve racking our experiences have been, when the time comes for us to leave the Lunga Point, it is confidently believed that our happiness in re- turning to our families will be mingled with a genuine feeling of regret in having to leave the many-friends we have made on board, not to mention the regret we shall feel in leaving the Lunga Point, which has, after all, been our home for many months now. We feel that we can say without fear of contradiction that the Lzmga Point and those who have served in her will have a very warm spot in the heart of every Officer and man who has been privileged to fight her, and that place in' our hearts will ever increase as the years roll by. The Lunga Point has had a glorious record. of which every officer and man can be -justly proud, whether he was on a gun or in the '4Black Gangng whether he was an Aviation Mee or a Signalmang whether he was a uplane pusher" or a Radioman, whether he was a Steward's Mate or a Photographerfs Mate, whether he was an Officer-of-the-Deck or a C.W.O., whether he was a Carpenteras Mate or a Quartermaster, whether he was a Yeornan or a Baker. VVherever they served, and what- ever their duties might have been, proper execution of their duties was essential to our success. The job assigned us simply could not have been done without the loo per cent co- operation of all hands. It is felt, however, that we have closely approached that goal of per- fection our Captain set for us on I4 May 1944. Every officer and man should, therefore, re- ceive due credit for the part he played, and for that reason, the name, rank or rate, and home address of every member of our Shipis Com- pany will appear in this book, except for some few who have been transferred without leaving their addresses. In the above paragraphs, this book has its genesis. It is not a perfect book by any means. There have been many obstacles, some of which it was impossible to surmount, but it has been our earnest endeavor. as nearly as possible, to completely and faithfully chronicle our first year for you. lf this book achieves its purpose of preserving those friendships and memories of the past year. we will have been well re- warded for our efforts, because. as your Editor, we will have that deep sense of personal satis- faction that can come only from the knowledge of a job well done. It's been a grand cruise, Shipmates. Au revoir! And God Bless you all. if E S. LINTON SMITH, Lieut., USNR .f43K7! .7f'e73llf 9177 'P , 4" f2.fQfQ, f1.7f'? "2 -Of? 'P Qf'
