Another name ' Hong Kong Tsai ' can be translated as " Little Hong Kong " or Little Fragrant Harbor ' ' and is what the Chineses call Aberdeen today. Originally Aberdeen was a ty- phoon shelter and landbase for sea- farers, but after the arrival of the Brit- ish, it became an important boat build- ing port. Today, it is a growing resi- dential area but some of it ' s old charm remains. Tsim Sha Tsui Tsim Sha Tsui derives its name from three Chinese words meaning: " Sharp Sandy Point " . Chatham Road was once a sandy beach which at its southern end, formed a shape like an eagle ' s sharp, curved beck. Today, the peninsula retains it basic pointed shape but the sandy beach has long since disappeared as a result of recla- mation. Hong Kong as viewed from Victoria ' s Peak.

Everything from traditional arts and crafts to the very latest in fashions, jewelry, watches, cameras and electronic goods can be bought here. Shops are generally open from 10am to 9 pm throughout the week. Traditional Chinese Markets: In the Jardine ' s Bazaar and Jardine Crescent area is an open-air market that warrants a visit. Stalls laden with vari- ous fashion items souvenirs and cheap clothing crowd the pavements and the fresh and cooked food stalls do good business. If you walk around the area you ' ll find old fash- ioned shops selling beans and herbalists dispensing dried concoctions. Pawn shops and tea houses can also be found in Pennington Street and in Irving Street are some Chinese wine stores. HM1 Fale and HM2 Joseph star in Best Bargain " .

There are discos and nightclubs located along both sides of Nathan Road and in many of the top class hotels and shopping arcades. There are also comfortable lounge bars with live music, pubs and western style dinner dance restaurants. Or you might like to visit a Chinese Theatre Restaurant for something a little differ- ent or a Japanese style sing-a-long bar. s i ! :?

Their vocabulary was tremendously improved with the introduc- tion of Tagaiog words like " Hindi ' and Oo " Buy something, Joe and " Florida " were given entirely new meanings. They, too, were absorb quickly for them to survive the streets of Olon- gapo City. (The city ' s name was derived from " Ulong Apo " , which in English literally means " Head of the Old " .) Gastronomic habits were largely altered as the Hooders explored the life that was to be within the " balot ' shells and the life that was in chewy chicken feet and intestines curling on bamt)oo bar-b- que sticks. Magsaysay Avenue was a dream, especially when the buying power of the dollar was strengthened as much as 400 percent. See you in West Pac ' 91 MABU- HAY!

He withdrew all military personnel, arms and equipment to the Bataan Peninsula and Corregidor Island across Manila Bay. There, the Filipino and American forces numbering less then 40,000 stood ground while awaiting reinforcem- ents from the US. They inflicted heavy losses on the Japanese, but as months dragged on, malnu- trition, diseases, the lack of ammunition and the delay in the arrival of help from the United States, forced them to surrender on 9 April 1942. However, the resistance in Bataan and Corregi- dor delayed the Japanese timetable for the con- quest in Southeast Asia.

The Change of Command Ceremony you witness today is not prescribed speci- fically by U.S. Navy regulations, but rather is an honored product of the rich heritage of Naval tradition. It is a custom wholly naval, without an equivalent counterpart in the Army or Air Force. Custom has established that this ceremony be formal and impressive, designed to ensure only duly authorized officers held command and that all aboard were aware of its authenticity. The heart of the ceremony is the formal reading of official orders by the relieving officer. Command passes upon utterance by the relieving officer, " I relieve you sir. " The officer being relieved responds, " I stand relieved. " This simple procedure is duplicated hundreds of times daily throughout the navies of the world as each watch officer passes the responsibility to his relief in the conduct of the ships routine. The strength and supremacy of today ' s Navy stems in large measure from the observance of customs and traditions, each founded on need, each contributing it ' s share to stability, combat effectiveness, and smooth of authority. This simple ceremony, passing authority and responsibility to yet another fine officer, reflects the dedication of free men serving their nation proudly. XO; The Original Party Animal Cdr. Coward takes one last look at Mount Hood. KOREA February 8-11, 1990 PUSAN is the largest harbor In Korea. There are many fo- reigners, tourists and sailors as Pusan Is a port. There are many things to see and do here. It ' s great for window shopping and real bargains. There are a num- ber of kaibi (bar-b-qued beef ribs) restaurants, theaters, souvenir shops and bars. Driv- ing away a little bit from down- town Pusan one comes to beaches that outlines the city. CHINHAE is another well- known port city famous for its cherry blossoms that lines every street. Each year In April a naval port festival is held for fifteen days. During spring people flock to this area to view the beautiful cheery blossoms and enjoy the arrival of the spring sea- son. The Korean Naval Acad- emy and headquarters of the Korean Navy are located here. US NAVY 46 HELO OPS HC-1 1 DET-1 provided Mount Hood with the capability to transfer tons of cargo without spending hours alongside other ships. The Air Detatchment also provided Mount Hood with mail and supplies from other ships, and was even used to Medivac sick and injured personnel to ships with more complete medical facilities. The Air Det flew thousands of hours during WESTPAC with a per- fect safety record. USS MOUNT HOOD (AE-11) 1 JULY 1944-10 NOVEMBER 1944 MOUNT HOOD (AE-11) was built under Maritime Commission contract as Marco Polo, MC hull 1356, by the North Carolina Shipbuilding Co., Wil- mington, N.C.; renamed Mount Hood, 10 November 1943; launched 28 November 1943; acquired by the Navy on loan-charter basis, 28 January 1944; commissioned 1 July 1944, Cdr. Harold A. Turner in command. Following shakedown, MOUNT HOOD reported to Combat Service Force, Atlantic Fleet, 5 August 1944. She was loaded out In Norfolk, VA and then set sail for the Pacific Theater. MOUNT HOOD arrived in Seeadler Harbor on 22 September 1944 and commenced dispersing ammunition and explosives to ships preparing for the Philippine offensive. At 0830, 10 November 1944, a party consisting of the communications officer, Lt. L.A. Wallace, and 17 men left the ship and headed for shore. At 0855, while walking on the beach, they saw a flash from the harbor, followed by the quick explosions. Scrambing into their boat, they headed back to- ward the ship, only to turn around again shortly thereafter as " There was nothing but debris all around ... " MOUNT HOOD, anchored in about 19 fathoms of water, with an estimated 3,800 tons of ordnance on board, had exploded. Mount Hood ' s former position was revealed only by a trench in the ocean floor 300 feet long, 50 feet wide and 30 to 40 feet deep. The largest pieces of metal found mea- sured no bigger than 16 by 10 feet. Ships within 2,000 yards were damaged or destroyed by the explosion which left 45 known dead, 327 missing and 371 injured, including the crew of MOUNT HOOD, of which only those ashore survived. A board, convened to investigate the explosion, could not determine the cause, and USS MOUNT HOOD (AE-11) was struck from the Naval Regis- ter on 11 December 1944 after less than four months of active service. 49 DECK ? ir-5 iif- UNREP station on the USS MISSOURI (BB-63) SN Lavadiere en|oys doing dirty work " C-y eck Department is responsible for the safe execution II of all underway replenishment evolutions (including I both CONREP and VERTREP) at sea.

SOVIET nS i - -.mi.- During the early part of WESTPAC, MOUNT HOOD encountered several Soviet vessels, mainly " fishing boats " but occasionally a " real " Soviet vessel would appear. These photos were taken by AE2 Howard onboard one of MOUNT HOOD ' S helicopters. The ship is a Soviet Krivak II class Frigate identified as the GORDELIVY (FFG-670). The frigate is armed to the teeth from bow to stern, carrying a wide variety of torpedoes, missiles and guns as well as several firing con- trol radars. However, this impressive array of ar- maments is of questionable effectiveness and accuracy. It is interesting to have the opportunity to see Soviet sailors at work. In these photos you may notice that they are wearing jumper type uniforms, as opposed to the dungaree uniforms worn by American sailors. 56 ENCOUNTERS ;»2: , Also pictured is a Soviet Bear Delta recon- naissance plane (similar to the one seen in the movie " The Hunt for Red October " ). Two of these planes circled Battlegroup Foxtrot gather- ing intelligence on the various ships, as well as photographing an underway replenishment which is something that the Soviet Navy has yet to perfect. Eventually, the two Bears were escor- ted away from the battle group by American F- 14 ' s launc hed from USS ENTERPRISE (CVN- 65). .it; 1 c: ' " ' -fc- L mr SUPPLY SHSN Brown displays some of the Items sold in the ships store J I upply Department ' s goals are to provide the ship I with the material support needed to meet it ' s mis- ■■1 I sion, and to provide the best personal service to con- 1 tribute toward the improved health, comfort and mo- rale of the crew. To accomplish these goals, Mount Hood ' s Supply Dept. is divided into four divisions: General Stores (S-1), Food Service (S-2), Sales (S-3), and Disbursing (S- 4).

The highest point in the state, f t. Hood rises 11,225 feet above sea level. The present MOUNT HOOD was launched on 17 July 1968, in Sparrow ' s Point, IVIaryland, and was commissioned on 1 May 1971, in Norfolk Virgin- ia. On 14 August 1971, Mount Hood sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge enroute to her homeport of Concord, California. She is the fourth of the KIL- AUEA class of ammunition ship to be built for the U.S. Navy. Her mission is to provide missiles, bombs, rockets, projectiles, torpedoes, mines and other expendable ordnance required by the Navy ' s operational forces to secure the freedom of the seas. MOUNT HOOD possesses the most recent develo pment in ammunition and missile handling equipment known as 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 underway. She also possesses the capability of carrying two Boeing Vertol UH-46D jet-powered helicopters, which can transfer 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 steaming in excess of 20 knots, a revolutionary development in the exacting 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 excess of 20 knots. A self-defense capability is provided by two twin 3750 dual purpose gun mounts. The " GREAT HOOD " as she is called by the ships she serves, was deployed to the Western Pacific for the first time on 27 April 1972 and has com- pleted three wartime and eight peacetime cruises since then, the most recent of which ended on 16 March 1990. 64 1.
