WESTPAC- - -1961
' MORTON left San Diego on the 3rd of April, the day after Easter. Our trip across the Pacific was punctuated with a
brief but pleasant stop at Pearl Harbor and a fuel stop at Midway Island. MORTON men enioyed seeing these two historic
spots of World War ll, and relaxing in the sun and surf at Waikiki,Beach in Honolulu.
. The next stop was the island of Guam where MORTON underwent a week of repairs and upkeep. lt was also an oppor-
tunity for lots of athletics, swimming, and fishing after the long iourney across the Pacific. From Guam we headed for the
Island of.Tauwan. About halfway there, we were diverted through the Philippine lsland chain and on to the Gulf of Siam. The
situation in Laos appeared critical at that moment. With characteristic readiness for trouble anywhere, anytime, the SEVENTH
Fleet was moving into position iust in case it were needed. Fortunately, and perhaps because the SEVENTH Fleet was ready,
the crisis passed and MORTON was again sent toward Taiwan.
For a month MORTON operated on the famous Formosa Patrol between Communist China and Free China. ln between
patrol duties we visited the Taiwanese ports of Kaohsiung and Keelung and while doing so showed the capabilities Nof SEVENTH
Fleet to wage peace as well as being ready for war.
' Through "Operation Handclasp" MORTON had carried hundreds of cartons of food, medicines and clothing from the
United States for donation to those who are less fortunate. Much of this material was given to the Christian Missionaries in
southern Taiwan and to the Red Cross Society in the country's capital of Taipei. ln addition, through other activities such as
baseball games, receptions and dinners, MORTON cultivated a bond of friendship with our Free Chinese allies.
From Taiwan we headed north to Japan visiting both of the ports of Yokosuka and Sasebo. ln between ports we operated
at sea with one of the Navy's powerful fast carrier striking groups. MORTON acted in the destroyer's traditional role as anti-
Submarine and anti-aircraft support for the attack carrier. During one period at sea we participated in an anti-submarine
training exercise with units of the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force.
The highlight of the visit to Japan was a special two-day stay in Yokohama which is the Sister City of MORTON'S home
visit was to present the Mayor of Yokohama with a picture which the City of San Diego
port of San Diego. The purpose of this
had entrusted to MORTON to deliver as a token of its friendship for Yokohama. ln addition, we opened our decks to general
Vlslilng Gnd many citizens of Yokohama came aboard to see this bit of America far from home.
Saving the most exotic for the last, we iourneyed to fabulous Hong Kong iust before leaving the Western Pacific and the
SEVENTH Fleet for our trip eastward and home.
A native of Pennsylvania, Commander 1Nilliam'C. YOUNG was
educated in the public schools and raised in the city of Allentown,
He mended Muhlenberg College, Allentown, and the University of
Alabama of Tuscoloosa. He entered the Navy in 1940 as a seaman
apprentice and was commissioned as an Ensign in 1942.
His first tour of duty upon being commissioned was as an in.
gfrucfor in gunnery. This was followed by a sea tour which from
1943 until 1947 he saw service with the amphibious forces on board
the USS GRIGGS lAPA 1101, USS BRONX lAPA 2361 and with the
Staff, COMTRANSDIV THIRTEEN on board the USS CHILTON lAPA
381. In 1947, he left the amphibious forces to join the destroyer fleet
in the USS JOHN A. BOLE lDD 7551. He served on board for two
f years rotating in the normal sequence through each department,
concluding with holding down the billet of Operations Officer.
Early in 1949 he entered Miami University for a year's study,
and then returned to the sea-going Navy as Executive Officer on
board the USS WANTUCK lAPD 1251, where he saw service in the
Korean War. He participated in the landings of Wolmi Do, lnchon,
and Wonsan plus numerous raids conducted by the Royal British
Marines and our own Underwater Demolition Teams.
In 1951, he reported to the Staff, Commander Training Com-
mand, U. S. Pacific Fleet, for duty in the Operations and Training
Section. Following this he was ordered to attend the War College
at Newport. ln June 1953, he reported to the Chief, Bureau of Naval Personnel for a tour of duty. He commanded the USS

CAPTAIN GEORGE A. O'CONNELL, JR.
Captain O'Connell, born in Birmingham, Alabama, was educated in
the public schools of the West, and was appointed to the U. S. Naval
Academy in July 1931 by Senator Henry J. Allen, of Kansas. After grad-
uation in 1935, he was commissioned Ensign, U. S. Navy, under probation
for two years, as was the custom. He did his probationary service in USS
.,,. TEXAS lBB 351. He went ashore in November 1945, and was thereafter
rotated in the normal sequence.
. ? All' b,-5,
Summarizing his service at sea, he served two years in battleships,
we . three years in cruisers, twelve years in destroyers and one year in mine-
craft. War experience was gained from beginning to end, embracing both
major theaters of the war. Most notable were Pearl Harbor and the Sur-
render Ceremony in Tokyo Bay. The Battles of Cape Esperance, Koman-
dorski, Normandy and Okinawa came in between.
Duty ashore comprised chiefly of staff duty. Joint Staff experience
included JCS ltwicel, the first being in 1947, which probably qualified
him as a "charter member", combined staff duty included the UN and
NATO, Navy staff duty included OPNAV, BUPERS, and DESLANT, and
he served a short tour of interdepartmental staff duty with the State
f'v gl! I
Captain O'Connell attended the usual fleet schools in gunnery, engineering, operations, ASW and.mine.warfare. Ashore,
he attended the Naval War College, the Armed Forces Staff College, and a .special comptrolIer's familianzation course at the
Navy Graduate School of Comptrollership, at George Washington University.

The primary mission of MORTON is that of a war-
ship, to be prepared for war and dissuade the enemy
from attacking our country and the countries of our
allies. As we departed for WESTPAC in April MORTON
took on a secondary mission, this one of peace.
During our deployment last year we were very much
impressed by the plight of many of the people in the
Far East. We witnessed many startling cases of desti-
tution that made us realize how fortunate we are.
This year we were readyitoiihelp qsmuch as we
goqid. Moierorsi is participating wholeheartedly in
"Operation l-landclasp."i Before leaving, the ,fljifiited
States every nook and cranny that was not filled with
weapons of war was stowed with clothes, food and
medicine donated hy private
welfare groups, and generous manufacturers.
These materials havegfound their way through mis?
sionaries, welfare groups and otrphanages ,to ,UCQQY
people in the free nations of the Far East. The,meD
of MORTON alone contributed 800 pounds of cgncen-
' T cause T E
trated food supplementsto
Much of the "Operation Handclasp" material was
delivered personally by MORTON sailors to its desti-
nation. ln Kaohsiung we delivered medicine to the
Christian Clinic in Ping Tung and our food supplement
was taken to the Christian Children's Sanatorium also
an Ping Tungf when MoRToN visited Keelung, Taiwan,
it tookllthree large trucks to carry medicine to the
Chinese' Red Cross in Taipei. For those sailors who
accompanied these deliveries it was a happy sight
indeed to see the appreciative expressions on the
faceswof those we are trying to help.
ln Yokosufka more food and clothing was taken from
MORTON'S hold and transferred to other Navy Ships
whofwould take them on to Korea to be used in caring
for the needy.
We hope that what little we have done may have
brought comfort to a few and that someday our only
mission will be that of peace. Next year when we
againrreturn to the Far East our holds will be iust as
full of "Operation Handclasp" material as we continue
to try to bring the East and West closer together.

First Division's primary iob is to perform the maintenance
and deck operations of the ship. Although these iobs are not
technically complex they are of vital importance to the ship.
The hull of the ship is the cornerstone, and it must be kept
clean and excellently preserved. This means that the deck
force must constantly attack their enemies, rust and corrosion.
Many times operational schedules and maneuvers make it
difficult for the deck force to keep ahead of their enemies:
this requires many long hard hours of toil. But this effort is
expended with enthusiasm and pride, so that the ship is always
ready to meet any situation. The Boatswain's Mates and their
seamen do a good iob in keeping the ship squared away,
ship shape, and looking good.
Deck force preparations not only keep up the combat
readiness of the ship, but also are a source of ship spirit and
pride when we receive on board such visitors as COMDESFLOT
ONE, COMSEVENTH FLEET, Miss Yokohama, and many others
in the various ports MORTON visits.

The island Oahu, ance the emerald tw'
glittering capital of the island kingdom, t-towel
has become today the renowned western vemgti
of the south sea myth, a diamond ofthe Pacifili
and the forerunner of a civilization brought fo
being three thousand years ago. An archipelago
that stretches fourteen hundred miles over the
mightiest of oceans, Hawaii, as though gymbolic
of its creation, has erupted from a cult of bongq
beating Balinese some two hundred years egg to
become America's fiftieth state and the moonlit
sun-soaked, star-studded, masterpiece memory
maker for thousands of urban adventurers
From the shroud of crushing defeat after the
paralyzing attack on Pearl Harbor, she has risen
out of her own ashes to become once more u
mainspring in Pacific Defense. Progress is a by.
word. Business booms, commerce flourishes, Ha-
waii is rich. The tourist industry is a multi-million
dollar enterprise. Yearly, Waikiki Beach, mecca
of honeymooners, evolves more grandiose than
ever before. Towering hotels of ever-increasing
numbers rise to face the white and mile-long
breakers of the famous resort.
ln all respects, Hawaii is little America but
with that all-fortunate addition of being a con-
venient south sea paradise.

ln the beginning, there was blazing white heat and the shimmer
of this heat on the blue-green surface of a vast mirror. There ap-
peared the mark of a tiny shoreline in this myriad of shimmering
light and it arose out of the heat, the light, and the endless green
glare and poised itself as an island.
The birth of Guam, a tropical oven. The heat though does not
wqylay its advantages. Guam commands the mid-Pacific, she is the
defensive keypost of the South Sea, the potent guardian of a south-
ern gate. The two airfields on the island and the naval base in the
south help to deter the ever-present threat of war in this theatre.
Even today though, a little paradise remains, the water is still
as green andiincandescent and the sun as glaringly bright as in the
first. The green shores have given ground to progress but it takes
only a little imagination to realize once the presence of a micronesia
-a free Eden of the past.

The deck force is weighed with the responsi-
bility of maintaining, rigging, manning, and
supervising the replenishment station that en-
ables ships of today's naval force to extend
the scope and endurance of their operations,
in exercise or in combat.
The men in the FIRST Division in MORTON
take pride in knowing from various messages
received, that our ability to provide and
receive transfer rigs is of the finest quality
encountered in the Pacific Fleet.
Evolutions ranged from the almost routine
highline personnel transfer to the ticklish am-
munition replenishment. Fuel replenishments
went swiftly and smoothly and only once dur-
ing stores transfer were five cases of Coca-
Safety is paramount on boaTd, and every

FIRST Division is ever ready to keep the ship

thus maintain the strength of this link in the
chain that is the U. S. Navy.

The MORTON, boasting polished, versatile athletic teams,
readily responded to challenges on several occasions
both in Taiwan and Japan. The first, a basketball con-
test against a local school, was a "battle to the finish"
type affair with action and anxiety throughout the game.
MORTON was defeated in the crucial final seconds by
a score 38-37. The following day, the baseball team
filed onto the-field to find, much to their dismay, a small,
flexible rubber ball being used. The MORTON men soon
discovered it was a fiasco after several fruitless attempts
to out-iump the ball. After seven innings of near hitless
playing the score was 7-3 against MORTON. The second
encounter was played in Tokyo on a field designed for
the baseball player. The opposition has been defeated
but three times in over 100 games. Despite the fact that
they were clearly outclassed, MORTON showed great
team spirit and determination and missed victory by a
scant one run. Exercising good sportsmanship in each of
these endeavors, we held true to the motto, "it matters
not whether you win or lose, but how you play the

After being the industrious target of colonizers since the Ming dynasty
set up shop in 1206, Taiwan has again become the prime plum of south-
east Asia and the sore thumb of the Peking Regime. Taiwan, by virtue of
its position, commands a large portion of the China coast and the trade
routes of the China Sea. lt remains a stronghold against Communist China's
threat of complete subversion in southeast Asia. lt is a major forefront in
the Asian cold war, an outpost of freedom, the seat of the Chinese
Nationalist Republic and Chiang Kai Shek's defensive citadel, an army
some four hundred thousand strong.

For the ship to go anywhere and remain movable in the water
it is dependent upon the Boiler Tenders. They provide steam for
the engines and steam for the generators. The two most important
functions of a ship-without these the ship would be dead.
Upon arrival in port the BT can be seen tugging a
hose, which fills the tanks for future excursions from the precious
in-port liberty. These men provide the initial spark t

U. S. S. Razorback
ln early July MORTON dunked 5 khaki-clad U. S. Army Colonels
in the salty blue. The Colonels were officers of the Staff of Com-
mander, U. S. Forces Japan and Commander U. S. Army Forces Japan
who were on an indoctrination tour of forces of the U. S. SEVENTH
They arrived on MORTON by highline at sea after having been
flown from Tokyo to the carrier MIDWAY. The MORTON in turn sent
the officers to the SEVENTH Fleet submarine U. S. S. RAZORBACK.
The seas were too rough for a normal boat transfer, so the Colonels
were embarked in a l5-man rubber raft along with a crew of
These MORTON men, under the direction of LTJG MOORE, strug-
gled with their canoe paddles against wind and waves to transport
the Army officers the short hundred yards to the RAZORBACK. Despite
every effort of the wind, they made it safely and brought the rubber
raft alongside the RAZORBACK. At that moment, a huge wave crested
against the hull of the submarine and washed back into the liferaft.
The Colonels found themselves sitting on the bottom of a rubber
swimming pool with about 2 feet of water in it!
A bit damp, the Colonels boarded RAZORBACK and watched her
operations under the sea while MORTON conducted simulated attacks
upon her. Upon completion of this, in deference to the Colonel's com-
was made by highline This
fort, the return trip from the RAZORBACK
was no easy feat for the submarine with her confined deck space and
the heavy seas.

Solid gold, IOOO yen
One first notices a thin line rising slightly
above the dark blue horizon, As the distance
diminishes between the line and you it takes shape
and forms itself into a green coastline. The hills and
harbors of this first impression are the prime intro-
duction into an eastern civilization reared from before
the birth of Christ even before the golden era of Rome
on a social and political system completely independent
of western culture. When America was only a glint in
Columbus' eye, a thousand emperors had waged their
gallant wars, countless families had been born, lived
and died to temper this civilization, to bear its fruit and
to carry it across the tragedy of world war to the van-
guard of international commerce. From under the rubble
of Hiroshima arose the decision of dedicated and res-
olute men to carry the torch of free democracy in the
East. Japan has united and rebuilt and now stands heel
to toe with free Asia in their efforts to combat the
thrusts of world communism.
Today in Japan, East meets West. Tokyo has become
porterhouse steak with soy sauce. In evidence through-
out the islands is the mark of the new era. Tea and
coca-cola run side by side. Japan is moving up and has
already become the new capital of the East.

The highlight of our visit to Japan
was a special two-day stay in Yoko-
hama, which is the Sister City ot
MORTON'S home port of San Diego.
The purpose of this visit was to pre-
sent the Mayor of Yokohama with a
picture which the City ot San Diego
had entrusted to MORTON to deliver
as a token of its friendship for Yoko-
hama. ln addition, MORTON opened
her decks to general visiting and
many citizens of Yokohama came

Sixteen hardy mountain climbing MORTON sailors
set out to climb the famous Japanese Mount Fuii,
and made it. lt is said that the most beautiful time
on top is sunrise, so our group was more than
happy to climb at night. The night climbing lasted
until eleven-thirty, at which time a delightful dinner
of whale meat, bamboo shoots and saki was
served. At two the next morning, after sleeping on
a bamboo rug, the climb was resumed. Sunrise
came, tea was served and with it the beauty of
Japan was unfolded at the feet of our climbers.
The trip down can better be described as sliding,
rather than walking, and at the bottom swimming
and boating awaited. On the trip one man was
heard to say, "Anyone who has the opportunity to
climb the Mount and doesn't is a fool, and anyone
who does it twice isga bigger fool."

The Supply Department has a high degree of versatility. These men are responsible for all the repair parts,
general stores, provisions and ship's store items that must be carried by a destroyer in order to operate. All
the service that is provided, such as the laundry, barber shop and "gedunk" are the responsibility of the
men in the supply department. The many meals that are prepared daily for the officers and enlisted men
are done so by the cooks and stewards. The paymaster and the clisbursing clerks who disburse thousands
of dollars each month are also members of the Supply Department. The Supply Department has a motto
which it can well be proud of-"Service to the Fleet."

Amidst the lands where the exotic, the unique
the outstanding are commonplace, HONG KONG
alone commands regency over all. Truly the mos'
colorful city in the world, she is claimed the "Pearl
of the Orient." This is a grave understatement, for
there has never been a gem discovered which could
duly represent the city's amazingly mysterious per.
Precariously situated within miles of Chinds
"Bamboo Curtain," HONG KONG flourishes undef
the ever present shadow of instantaneous invasion
and, undaunted, carries her name, her trade, her
international flavor throughout the free world,
Lodged on the thirty square miles of island are
three and a half million people. The massed districts
of the great city, teeming, over-populated, throb with
a civilization en masse. Shanties and shacks are
erected in every available space giving what little
shelter cardboard and corrugated aluminum can to
the millions of homeless refugees crowded into the
confines of only a score of city blocks. Though these
slums tint the entire city by their impoverished
squallor, the spirit and free enterprise of this special
breed of people give the city its true uniqueness,
even under these conditions, unsurpassingly difficult
by any standards, free thought and a common bond
show through the baser instincts prevalent in all
manner of men and bring to light practical visible
proof of man's finer virtues. Nearly all of these
people have escaped the yoke of communist policy,
most of them with little more than what they wore
to arrive in HONG KONG, faced with the task of
supporting themselves and their families. As a result,
Wanchi, Western Market and the other sections are
engaged daily in an intriguing struggle for survival
indirectly involving the whole city itself.
On the other hand HONG KONG is not at all
just the asylum of refugees. The smart and elegant
hotels and shops of KOWLOON and central HONG
KONG display the modern elegance of the west and
uphold the highest standards of living required of
any international attraction. The natural beauty of
the city and the outlying countryside, the steep hills
surrounding the harbor, form another face of this
city's many, many varied sides.
