When a ship goes to sea and returns the families waiting in the quiet port ask, "What did you
do over there?'l Often the answer is slow in coming, incomplete, and hard to understand.. D
Friends and family don't understand that in the dark of Combat Information Center it is
always three o'clock in the morning, or that in the engine room the turbines never stop whining
and the lights never go out.
Even the sailor has trouble grasping at the answer. He understands that he was gone almost a
year, and yet to recount all of that time seems impossible.
There are physical marks, greying hair, weight gained or lost, eyes that can look to the
horizon, but to the sailor nothing has changed.
When the decision was made to print a cruise book, a group of us came together hoping to
chronicle the events of what we thought was going to be an eight month deployment.
Over a year has passed since that first meeting and in that time ma th' h h

Most of the original crew has left, and in their place a conglomerate of contributors has come

My first glimpse of Mount Hood was in November 1970 at Bethlehem Steel Corporation located at
Sparrows Point, Maryland. The construction of the ship was approximately eighty per cent completed. As l
gazed at the massive silhouette, the myriad of problems and hard work associated with preparing a newly con-
structed ship for commissioning and service became readily apparent. There would be innumerable trials and
inspections, and prior to our departure for the Western Pacific, extensive refresher training. I am proud to say,
throughout all of these highly demanding evolutions, all hands met the challenge and performed spendidly-
When Mount Hood was called upon to deploy two and one-half months early, again everyone responded ad-
mirably as they had in the past.
The manner in which we carried out our missions during our long deployment and reputation established
is well known and noted by all echelons of command. Professionalism in delivering ammunition both by the
alongside method and helicopter - that was our trade mark. This top performance required dedication and
self-sacrifice from everyone.
To this end, I would like to express my sincere gratitude and deep appreciation to the officers and men of
Mount Hood, Helicopter Detachment 101, and EOD Team 13 for your loyality, trust, and dedication and for a
job well done.

Little can be added to the many good things which have been said about Mount Hood from her com-
missioning to the end of the period covered by this "Crew's Book." Mount Hood has established an un-
beatable reputation during her short but eventful lifeg she is off to a flying start in what is sure to be a long and
productive life of distinction in providing service to the fleet. As we put the "Crew's Bookw to press and review
the many pages of effort, achievements and fun too, we can hope and pledge that the next volume will be
written and read with the same well earned sense of accomplishment as is this one. With the dedication to ex-
cellence which has become the hallmark of the crew of Mount Hood, we can have every assurance that this
pledge will become a reality.

A HISTORY OF SHIPS NAMED MOUNT HOOD
USS MOUNT HOOD CAE-295 is the second ship of the fleet to bear the name of an extinct
volcanic peak in the Cascade Range of Oregon. The highest point in the state, it is 11,225 feet above sea
The first MOUNT HOOD QAE-11? was laid down at the North Carolina Shipbuilding Company of
Wilmington, North Carolina, 28 September 1943 and she was launched 30 November 1943, under the
sponsorship of Mrs. A. J. Reynolds, wife of Major Reynolds, USA, at that time serving with the 366th
Fighter Group, Army Air Base, Wilmington, North Carolina. Built for the U.S. Maritime Commission
KMC Hull No. 13563, she was named MARCO POLO. Acquired by the Navy on a Loan-Charter basis
28 January 1944, the ship was fitted out at Norfolk Navy Yard, renamed MOUNT HOOD and com-
missioned 6 August 1944-, Commander H. A. Turner, USN, in command.
MOUNT HOOD had an overall length of 459 feet, 2 inches, an extreme beam of 63 feet, a full load
displacement of 14,110 tons, a maximum draft of 26 feet, 7 inches, and accommodations for 22 officers
and 296 men. She had a maximum speed of 16.4 knots and was armed with one 5-inchf38 caliber gun,
four 3-inch!50 caliber guns and two twin 40-mm anti-aircraft mounts.
MOUNT HOOD conducted brief shakedown training at Norfolk and reported to Commander
Service Force, U.S. Atlantic Fleet. She loaded ammunition and 21 August 1944, departed Norfolk for
the Pacific in company with other ships of Task Unit 29.6.9 After transit of the Panama Canal, 27
August, she steamed for Finschaven, New Guinea, arriving 21 September 1944. She departed the same
day and 22 September, anchored in Seeadler Harbor, Manus, Admiralty Island.
On the morning of 10 November 1944, MOUNT HOOD exploded by accident while at anchor in
At 0855, an explosion, evidenced by flame and smoke, shot up from amidships to more than
masthead height. Within a few seconds at the most, the bulk of the ammunition aboard the USS
MOUNT HOOD was set off with a terrible explosion. Smoke mushroomed 7,000 feet into the air and
obscured the ship and the surrounding vicinity for a radius of approximately 500 yards on all sides.
When the smoke had lifted from the surface of the water a few minutes later, only small pieces of debris
were to be seen. The ship and all personnel on board had disappeared.
The force of the explosion blasted a trough in the ocean floor more than 100 yards long, 50 feet
wide, and from 30 to 40 feet deep directly below the position of the USS MOUNT HOOD. No
fragments could be found on the ocean floor larger than pieces of metal 16 feet by 10 feet.
Pieces of metal and projectiles were hurled in all directions. Some fragments landed more than 2,-
000 yards from the anchorage of the USS MOUNT HOOD. The concussion and flying missiles caused
casualties and damage to ships and small craft within this radius.
Among the men assigned to MOUNT HOOD, one officer and 17 men ashore at the time survived,
one man was known dead, and 295 were missing. On board the 27 other ships and craft in the area,
there were 17 known dead, 32 missing, and 370 injured. MOUNT HOOD was officially struck from the
Navy List 11 December 1944.

THE USS MOU T HOOD OF TODAY
USS MOUNT HOOD CAE-295 is the fourth of the KILAUEA class of ammunition ships to be built for the
U.S. Navy. Her mission is to provide the missiles, bombs, rockets, projectiles, torpedoes, mines, and other GXPGU'
dable ordnance required by the Navy's operational forces to secure the freedom of the seas.
MOUNT HOOD possesses the most recent development in ammunition and missile handling equipment-
The system is called STREAM, Standard Tensioned Replenishment Alongside Method. This system uses a ram-
tensioned wire extended from ship to ship to safely and quickly transfer cargo between them while underwH5'- She
also possesses the capability of carrying two Boeing Vertol UH 46-D jet-powered helocopters, which can tranSf9I'
ammunition to other ships at up to one hundred tons of cargo per hour. Using her full capability MOUNT HOOD
can rearm four ships simultaneously while steamin
acting science of mobile logistic support of combat forces at sea.
MOUNT HOOD is 564 feet in length, with a beam of 81 feet, and a full load draft of 28 feet She is fitted with
special roll stabilization tanks to provide a steady platform for handling ammunition. Her three installed boilers
are capable of developing 22,000 shaft horsepower, which can propel MOUNT HOOD to a top speed well in ex-

The Tradition Of The Sponser
The origin of the christening ceremony for seagoing vessels goes far back into antiquity when the spirit ofthe
person christening the ship was said to center the ship and remain there forever. Passing on to modern times as an
inviolable tradition, the christening of modern ships and boats by a special person is still practiced by all nations
in one form or another.
Ships of the U.S. Navy were orginally christened by men until the middle of the 19th century. On 22 August
1846, the first woman ever to sponsor a United States Ship, Mrs. Lavina Watson Fanning, christened the sloop of
war, GERMANTOWN, at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. Since that time, the christening of a U.S. Navy ship
has always been carried out by a woman. Even today, the sponsor continues to hold a special place in the hearts of
the men who sail the Navy's Ships.

hx' CHIEF OF NAVAL OPERATIONS
30 April 1971
Dear Captain Taylor,
My best wishes to you and to your crew on the
com issioning of MOUNT HOOD CAE-291.
It is your privilege to command a high perfor-
mance ship in our new Navy. MOUNT HOOD, embodying
the most advanced equipment for the handling and
transfer of ordnance, will significantly increase
the fighting capability of the fleet. Using tech-
niques developed in World War II, and greatly refined
in recent years, the underway replenishment forces
provide the fleet with the capability to carry out
sustained combat operations wherever required. In
such operations, demands on ships of your type will
be particularly high in view of the greatly increased
am unition usage rates of modern ships and aircraft.
Every man in the ship's company now has the demanding
task of developing to the fullest degree the readiness
of MOUNT HOOD to carry out her vital role.
Your selection as Commanding Officer of MOUNT
HOOD is a tribute to your past performance and attests
to your ability to meet the challenge of Command, the
most cherished experience of a Naval career. You know
the truth of Admiral Arleigh Burke's remark that any
5h1P iS 'good because of the people in her: without them
She is an inert mass of steel.' Our need for highly
m0tlVated, experienced personnel has never been greater-
I urge you to be keenly aware of the welfare of your men
There is no substitute for a crew who is well informed
and whose talents are recognized. I encourage you to
delegate responsibility down to the lowest level and in
know will be' one of our Navy's finest fighting unite
On behalf of the Navy, I welcome MOUNT HOOD to the
fleet- MBY every success be yours.

THE COMMISSIONING OF A NAVY SHIP
The commissioning of a naval ship marks the end of its
long journey to become a member of the Operating Forces of
the United States Navy. At the moment of the breaking of her
commissioning pennant, MOUNT HOOD becomes U.S.S.
MOUNT HOOD. Simultaneously Captain Leslie A. Taylor
becomes her first Commanding Officer, who, together with the
ship's officers and men, has the duty of making and keeping
MOUNT HOOD ready for any service required by our nation in
peace or war.
The origin of the commissioning pennant is believed to
date back to the Dutch War of l653-4 when the Dutch were
fighting the English. The Dutch Admiral Van Tromp hoisted a
broom at his masthead to indicate his intention to sweep the
English from the seas. The gesture was soon answered by the
English Admiral Robert Blake who hoisted a horsewhip to
indicate his intention to overpower and defeat the Dutch. The
British succeeded in fulfilling their boast, and ever since the
narrow. or coachwhip, pennant tsymbolizing the original
horsewhipl has been the distinctive mark of a ship of war
adopted by all nations.
Finally the ship becomes a vital living emnity as her crew comes
aboard for the first time.

Midwatch Deck Log Entry
1 January 1973
It's six nights since Christmas
In the South China Sea
At our New Years party
They're serving iced tea
We're steaming alone
So our own Captain Razz
And all that jazz
Our boss still remains
Seventy-three decimal five
We've been out here eight months
Man what a jive
We're steering a course of zero-eight-eight
Heading for Subic to keep a hot date
Comseventh's orders in this quarters OP SKED
Told us to keep the Hood on this head
It's the third quarter
Of fiscal year seventy three
The number one teams on deck
Chief Sweet, Ens. Rhodes and me
Steaming along making turns for twenty
Une and two boilers are making steam aplenty
Old number two is the SSTG
Providing the lights by which we all see
We're steering by starboard
And doing our best
To see the port unit
Gets a well deserved rest
The ship is all darkened except you will learn
Thereis four lights above and one on our stern
The range light is tall the mast light is short
A green light marks starboard a red light marks port
The condition is yoke
The crew is in four
The fighting's behind us
We need nothing more
Next New Years we hope
We're still not at sea
Weid like to be home
Just our mommas and we

It was a cool rainy afternoon when the slimy pollywogs met their fate at
the hands of the Royal Shellbacks. Davy Jones and King Neptune
presided over the pollywogs agony, as the Royal Barber gave his special
"Shampoo," The sound of shillelaghs whizzing through the air was punc-
tuated by yelping. Some took it worse than others. There was little or no
mercy for the timid. The slopchute was truly a gourmets feast and no
meal could be completed without a good dose ofthe Royal Immunization
Fluid. On our backs we rolled in the Royal Bath and emerged as Noble
Shellbacks - it was all too much -

Upon the slimy sea.

Date: 27 MARCH 73
From: Commander Task Force SEVEN
To: USS MOUNT HOOD
1. As MOUNT HOOD Departs the Western
Pacific after an extended eleven month tour
with the Seventh Fleet Mobile Logistic Sup-
port Force, I take this final opportunity to com-
mend your officers and men for a job well done.
You have been one of our true stalwarts. Arriv-
ing shortly after the North Vietnamese offen-
sive began, you provided combat support until
the cease fire to the highest tempo of OPS ex-
perienced in the Seventh Fleet in recent times.
MOUNT HOOD passed almost 32,000 tons of
ammo, a superb quantity alone, but you went
beyond this by making excellent use of your
helos to transfer large quantities of fleet
freight, mail and passengers. This additional
support was very significant and it went a long
way toward enhancing MOUNT HOOD's fine
reputation and the reputation of the service
force in general. Be assured that I know that
the job you have done has not been as easy as
you have made it look. Your contribution to the
Navy's efforts in SE Asia during the critical
period of your deployment was most significant.
We were indeed fortunate that MOUNT
HOOD was in Westpac when we needed her
Signed: Rear Admiral Cole
29 March 1973
From: COMMANDER SERVICE FORCE
U.S. PACIFIC FLEET
TO: USS MOUNT HOOD AE-29
Welcome home! As you sail homeward after a
deployment of almost eleven months I wish to
express my deepest appreciation to Captain
Rasmussen, the officers and enlisted men of
MOUNT HOOD for successfully completing
an arduous WestPac tour. You have been a
most valuable asset to the Mobile Logistic
Support Force in Southeast Asia. The dedica-
tion, professionalism and cooperation of the
Men of MOUNT HOOD has been gratifying.
It is a pleasure to have you in the force. I wish
you a warm and happy homecoming with
families and friends in CONCORD.
REAR ADMIRAL P. B. ARMSTRONG
23 March 1978
From: Commander Task Group 73.5
To: USS MOUNT HOOD AE-29
Sayonara, As Mt. Hood sets sail for home after
an eleven month deployment I commend you
for your highly professional performance while
a part of Task Group 73.5. The competence and
dedication exhibited by you during all
evolutions, have been exemplary and earned
for you a reputation as an exceptionally hard-
working crew, versatile and professional. You
can be justly proud of your contribution to the
Westpac Mobile Logistic Service Force during
one of its most demanding periods. We have
been fortunate to have MOUNT HOOD as one
of our team. To DETACHMENT 101 of
HELICOPTOR COMBAT SUPPORT
SQUADRON-3, Your superb support
throughout the deployment greatly enhanced
MT. HOOD'S and TASK GROUP 73.5,S flex-
ibility. I extend my sincere well done to all
Hands and my best wishes for a smooth journey
eastward and a most Happy Homecoming.
Signed: COMMODORE F. B. BROMLEY
1 APRIL 1973
From: Commander Service Group One
To: USS MOUNT HOOD QAE-291
As you cross the line from Western Pacific to
Eastern Pacific waters let me extend a hearty
and long awaited welcome home to the officers
and men of MOUNT HOOD after a very
successful deployment. It is difficult to add t0
the plaudits already received by MOUNT
HOOD, but I want all hands to know that the
many and varied accomplishments of MOUNT
HOOD'S crew has been more than amply
demonstrated by your record of service and
Support to our forces in the Far East. Yours has
been an outstanding record of accomplish-
ment, contributing greatly to the readiness Of
the Seventh Fleet Forces, and the attainment
of an honorable conclusion to the war in Viet-
nam. Well done. May the remainder of y0l1I'
journey to homeport be smooth and fast and
YOUI' long awaited reunion with families and
loved ones an occasion of much joy.
