MOUNT MCKINLEY CAGC-7, cfo Fleet Post Office New York, N. Y. Dear Captain Lauerman: This replies to your letter of August 28 advising of your willingness to accept an Alaska Flag for display on the quarterdeck of the U. S. S. MOUNT MCKINLEY in -line with previous suggestion by Mr. Richard Hogan of your ship's Navigation Department. Such a display is exceedingly appropriate and I am pleased to enclose a 3 x 5 Alaska emblem for this purpose. Just as the MOUNT HCKINLEY bears the name of the highest geographical feature on the North American continen we in Alaska feel strongly that our attainment of Statehood represents a high point in this Nation's efforts to danon- strate its continued faithfulness to the principles of self government upon which it was founded. As such, the presence of the Alaska Flag on the quarterdeck of the MOUNT MCKINLEY as it deploys through the waters of the Mediterranean and elsewhere, will symbolize our Nation's firm determination to protect and encourage freedom among all mankind. . with the thought that it may also be of interest to you and to the mmnbers of your crew, I am enclosing an informational sheet which describes the origin and meaning of the Flag's design. All Alaskans join me in extending to you and your men their best wishes for your success and safety. I S ncerely, William A. Egan Governor C, I !

C. LAUERMAN, U. S. NAVY Captain Lauerman was born in Chicago in April 1917. Upon completion of the University of Chicago High School in 1934 he entered the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis the same year, graduating with the C1858 of '38. Following his graduation he was assigned to the USS Cal- ifornia as the "B" Division Officer. The following year Captain Lauer- man was transferred to the USS Erie as assistant First Lieutenantv In 1940 he raduated from submarine school at New London and was assign- ed duty witi the fleet. At the beginning of World War Two he was aboard the USS Tambor on patrol off Wake Island. In 1942 he transferred to the USS Halibut as the Gunnery and Torpedo Officer. While assigned to the Halibut he participated in the first surfaced submarine attack which used radar. Two Japanese transports were sunk and as a result of this Captain Lauerman was awarded his first Silver Star. In 1943 he reported to the USS Sea Lion as her Executive Officer. The Sea Lion during three successful patrols was responsible for sinking 50,000 tons of shipping. At this time he was awarded his second Silver Star. The following year he became skipper of the USS Cabrillo. After the war duty followed with the Judge Advocate General's Office for post graduate study in law at Georgetown University. In 1948 he was admitted to the bar of the District of Columbia. Next he assumed command of the USS Argonaut. During his two years as her skipper this submarine was awarded the coveted "E" for combat efficiency. In 1950 he returned to Washington to the Office of the Judge Advocate General and in 1953 was transferred as Executive Officer to the USS Sperry. The next year he became Commander Submarine Division 52. At the completion of this duty he was promoted to the rank of Captain. During the next four years Captain Lauerman saw duty again in Washington and staff duty with Commander in Chief, U.S. Atlantic Fleet. In November 1960, while the USS Mount McKinley was deployed in the Med, he relieved as her Commanding Officer. As we depart for our present sojourn to the Med, Captain Lauerman can look back with pride over the.progress of his ship during the period that has seen him at her helm. In early 1962 Captain Lauerman will de- part as Mount McKinley's Commanding Officer and become Commander Service Squadron Four.

MOUNT-MCKINLEY ENTERED THE MED- ITERRANEAN AND JOINED THE UNITED STATES SIXTH FLEET. i THE SIXTH FLEET IS A COMPLETELY MOBILE, SEA GOING FLEET WITHOUT SHORE BASES IN THE MEDITERRANEAN. IT HAS SPECIFIC MISSIONS ALL OF WHICH ARE FRIENDLY. IT PROVIDES VALUABLE WARTIME TRAINING FOR THE SHIPS AND MEN OF THE UNITED STATES FLEET, AND HELPS TO FAMILIARIZE THEM WITH THIS STRATEGIC AREA OF THE WORLD. AT THE SAME TIME IT HELPS TO PROTECT AND SUPPORT UNITED STATES FORCES AND INTERESTS IN THE AREA, AND PROVIDES ASSURANCE TO THE MEDITERRANEAN NATO COUNTRIES OF OUR FRIENDSHIP AND READINESS TO HELP THEM. THROUGH CONSTANT EXERCISES, INCLUDING REPLENISHMENT AND REFUELING AT SEA, OUS LANDINGS CARRIER FLIGHT OPERATIONS AGAINST OTHER FLEET UNITS AMPHIBI OR AGAINST SHORE AREAS, ANTI-SUBMARINE EXERCISES, AIR INTERCEPT, AND ANTI- AIRCRAFT AND SURFACE GUNNERY EXERCISES, THE FLEET MAINTAINS A CONDITION OF PEAK READINESS FOR ANY EMERGENCY.

CARTAGENA, SPAIN, OUR FIRST LIBERTY PORT, WAS A FORTIFIED SEAPORT AND NAVAL ARSENAL IN THE PROVINCE OF MARCIA, ON THE SOUTHEASTERN COAST OF THE MED.. ITERRANEAN. THE HARBOR WAS ONE OF THE LARGEST AND SAEEST IN THE WORLD. THE CITY, LOCATED AT THE NORTHERN END OF THE HARBOR, WAS SURROUNDED BY A LOFTY WALL, FLANKED WITH BASTIONS. SOME OF THE PRINCIPAL BUILDINGS WERE: THE CATHEDRAL DATING FROM THE 13TH CENTURY, NON CONVERTED INTO A SIMPLE PARISH CHURCH, THE OLD CASTLE, SUPPOSED TO DATE FROM THE FOUNDING OF THE CITY BY THE CARTHAGINIANS IN 225 BC, 'THE ARTILLERY PARK, THE OBSERVATORYg AND THE CONVENTS OF ST. AUGUSTINE AND MONJAS. THE CITY WAS TAKEN BY SCIEIO AFRICANUS IN 210 BC AND AFTERWARD BECAME A ROMAN COLONY. IN 425 AD THE VANDALS LARGELY DESTROYED IT5 AND 711, AFTER HAVING BEEN IN THE POSSESSION OF THE VISIGOTHS, IT AGAIN SUFFERED DESTRUC- TION AT THE HANDS OF THE SARACENS. UNDER THEM IT BECAME AN INDEPENDENT PRINCIEALITY, WHICH WAS CONOUERED FINALLY BY JAMES I OP ARAGON IN 1276, IN 1585 IT WAS SACKED BY THE ENGLISH FLEET UNDER SIR FRANCIS DRAKE. IN 1873 A BODY OF COMMUNISTS OBTAINED POSSESSION OF THE CITY AND EORTIEICATIONS, BUT THEY WERE COMPELLED TO SURRENDER IN THE FOLLOWING YEAR.

Captain Russell F. Flynn, USN, relieves as Commanding Officer, USS MOUNT MCKINLEY CAGC-71 on March 23, 1963. Captain Flynn was born in Leesville, Connecticut, on August 15, 1918. He attended Nathan Hale High School, Moodus, Connecticut. He began his military career by enlisting in the Army with the intention of attending the United States Military Academy. However, while attending west Point Preparatory School, Portland, Maine, he obtained an appointment to the United States Naval Academy, graduating December 19, l9Al, class of 'A2. At the onset of World war II Captain Flynn was ordered to the Pacific Fleet as signal officer aboard the battleship USS MISSISSIPPI CBB-All until July l9A3. During the war he participated in the amphibious operations at Attu, South Pacific, Lingayen Gulf, Leyte, Surigao Strait and Okinawa. In l9AA he studied applied communications at the U. S. Naval Post Graduate School, Annapolis, Maryland, and during the years 19Ah-19L7 served as Conmmnication Officer aboard the battle- ships PENNSYLVANIA QBB-385 and IOWA CBB-611 in the Pacific theater. He was on board USS PLNNSYLVANIA when she was torpedoed at Okinawa the day before World War II ended. After the war, Captain Flynn became Executive Officer of USS GAINARD CDD-7061 operating in the Atlantic Fleet. He then served as Communi- cation Instructor at the General Line School in Monterey, California, and as Communication Officer on the staff of Conmander Carrier Division 16 CHunter-Killer Force Atlanticl, before becoming Executive Officer of USS WATTS CDD-5673. Captain Flynn served three years within the Office of the Director of Naval Communications, Office of Chief of Naval Opera- tions. In June, 1957, he assumed command of USS HAROLD J. ELLISON QDD- 86Aj and from August 1959 until December 1960, Captain Flynn was Senior Surface Instructor, and headed the Trainer Section at the Anti-submarine Warfare Tactical School, Norfolk, Virginia. During the two and one-half years prior to reporting to MOUNT MCKINLEY CAGC-7D, Captain Flynn was Operational Communications and Planning Officer on the staff of Commander in Chief, U. S. Atlantic Fleet. Captain Flynn married Miss Belle walker Welch of Lothian, Maryland, in April 19A2, in San Francisco, California. They have three daughters, Patricia Gail, Kathleen Stirling, and Ellen Catherine Flynn, and thrge sons, Russell Francis, John J. M., and Henry P. Flynn. The Flynns cur- rently reside in Norfolk, Virginia. .,-.,,,.,,.,.,,-.,,,,...m......,.,.....,...,..-,....,... ....... A . Y,... A Y..-.-.. ...,,, N... THE NAVAL CAREER OF CAPTAIN RUSSELL F. FLYNN, USN, CCNNANDLNC OFFICER., use MOUNT MCKINLEY CAGC-75 'Mt PERSONAL CONTACT WAS MOUNT MCKINLEY'S THEME DURING THIS DEPLOYMENT WHILE EXTENDING THE HAND OF FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND THE PEOPLES OF THE COUNTRIES OF SOUTHERN EUROPE. WHENEVER WE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY, GIFTS WHICH WERE BROUGHT WITH US FROM TH STATES WERE DISTRIBUTED TO ORPHANAGES AND MISSIONARIES IN MANY OF THE PORTS WE VISITED. OUR NEDITERRANEAN FRIENDS ARE NOT FORGOTTEN WHEN NE LEAVE PORT- FOR INSTANCE, DURING A MEDITERRANEAN CRUISE IN 1959, THE CE DIVISION UADOPTEDU A SEALL ITALIAN GIRL THROUGH THE FOSTER PARENTS PLAN. CARMELLA ERRICHELLI WAS THEN EIGHT YEARS OLD, ATTRACTTVE AND BRIGHT--EVEN THOUGH HER HOME WAS MORE OF A SHANTY THAN A HOUSE. i1-111-, CARMELLA'S SISTER, CARMELLA, AND INTERPRETER ABOARD MOUNT MCKINLEY DURING OUR VISIT TO NAPLES THIS YEAR, THE MEN OF CE DIVISION WERE ABLE TO HAVE THEIR FOSTER DAUGHTER, NOW A BRIGHT, FRIENDLY TWELVE-YEAR-OLD, ABOARD FOR DINNER AND A VISIT. THIS NAS HER SECOND VISIT TO MOUNT MCKINLEY AS SHE HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN ENTERTAINED DURING THE MEDITERRANEAN CRUISE OF 1961 THERE IS CONTTNUOUS EXCHANGE OF CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN CARMELLA AND HER FOSTER FATHERS. W ALSO CORRESPOND WITH OTHER NEW FRIENDS THAT WE EET IN THE MEDITERRANEAN KEEPING IN CLOSE TOUCH, HOPING TO VISIT AGAIN. RHGDES , GREECE THOUGHT OF BY MANY AS ONE OF THE LOVELIEST ISLANDS TO BE FOUND ANYWHERE IN THE MEDITERRANEAN IS RHODES. SURROUNDED BY DEEP-BLU AEGEAN WATERS, ITS MOUNTAINS ARE COVERED NITH JILDFLONERS AND THICK VEG TATION. SEMITROPICAL FLOWERS ARE IN EVIDENCE ALL YEAR ROUND...THE SCARLET AL- THEAS, PURPLE BOUGAINVILLAEA, ROSES IN LIMITLESS PROFUSION. IN THE SUMMER ITS LANDSCAPES ARE BRIGHTENED BY MILLIONS OF BUTTERFLIES. ON MANY A DESERTED HILLTOP STAND RUINS OF GRACEFUL TEMPLES. RHODES IS THE SECOND OF ALL AEGEAN ISLANDS IN SIZE, SUBORDINATE ONLY TO CRETE, WHICH LIES SEVENTY MILES SOUTHWEST. RHODES IS SIXTY MILES LONG. THE SUNSHINE FROM ITS COMBINATION OF DRY AIR, BLUE SEA, AND DENSE VEGE- TATION CASTS A BENEFICENT LIGHT OVER THE WHOLE ISLAND, A PHENOMENON WHICH IMPELLED THE EARLIEST OF ITS ANCIENT PEOPLES TO DEDICATE IT TO APOLLO, THE GOD OF LIGHT. RHODES, WHOSE NAME IS BELIEVED TO HAVE COME FROM ITS WEALTH OF ROSES, REMAINED A CENTER OF EDUCATION AND NAVIGATION THROUGHOUT ANCIENT TIMES. THE EARLIEST KNOWN NAVAL CODES FOR ADMINISTERING A FLEET HAVE DESCENDED FROM THESE PEOPLE, AND THEIR PRINCIPLES HERE ADOPTED BY THE BRITISH NAVY. .

THEN RHODES NAS CON- QUERED BY THE CRUSADERS. THE CRUSADERS LOST NO TTME IN BUILDING A FORTI- FIED CITY ON RHODES THAT IS STILL A MARVEL OF MEDIEVAL ARCHITECTURE. HOWEVER, THE TURKS LATER PROVED TOO STRONG FOR THE INHABITANTS OF RHODES, AND IN 1522 BEAT DOWN THE DEFENSES. THE SULTANS REMAINED IN POSSESSION OF RHODES FOR ALMOST FOUR HUNDRED YEARS. IN 1911 AN ITALIAN FLEET APPEARED OFF THE HARBOR AND DEMANDED THE SUR- RENDER OF THE TURKISH GOVERNOR, ITALY AND TURKEY BEING AT NAR. AFTER WORLD WAR I ITALY, WITH MUSSOLINI AS DICTATOR, DECIDED TO DEVELOP RHODES EVEN MORE. DURING THEIR OCCUPATION, THE ISLAND'S TOURIST ATTRAC- TIONS WERE INTENSIVELY DEVELOPED, AND TH FINE HOTEL OF THE ROSES BUILT. THE RHODIANS WERE HOSTILE TO THE OCCUPATION. LIBERATION CAME AFTER THREE YEARS OF STARVATION AND BOMBARDMENT DURING WORLD WAR II. ITALY SURREN- DERED TO THE ALLIES AND GERMANY SEIZED RHODES. A LITTLE NAR BETWEEN BRITISH AND GERMAN COMMANDOES LASTED FITFULLY UNTIL VQE DAY. AT THEIR SURRENDER, THE BRITISH HANDED RHODES AND THE DODECANESE OVER TO GREECE.

OUR VISIT TO IZHIR FROM APRIL 13-17 WAS MOST IN- FORIALATIVE AS 'IO THOUGHTS AND BELIEFS OF THE TURKISH PEOPLE. ATHENS, GREECE LOCATED JUST FIVE MILES FROM ITS SEAPORT OF PIRAEUS AT THE SOUTHERN END OF THE CENTRAL PLAIN OF ATTICA, ATHENS COEBINES A GLORIOUS PAST WITH A BUSTLING PRESENT. MARBLE COLUMNS AND ANCIENT AEPHITHEATERS STAND AS SILENT SENTINELS AMID MODERN BUILDINGS AND BUSY TRAFFIC, MAK- ING TIM STAND STILL IN THE EINDS OF VISITORS AND RESIDENTS ALIKE. INDEED, ATHENS IS TWO CITIES IN ONE...SEPARATED BY ALMOST 3,000 YEARS. THE CITY OF ATHENS, ORIGINALLY BUILT ON THE PLATEAU OF THE SACRED ROCK OF THE ACROPOLIS, WAS INHABITED LONG BEFORE THE 16TH CENTURY, B. C. IT WAS NAMED CECROPIA AFTER ITS KING CECROPS. LATER, THE NAM CECROPIA WAS CHANGED TO ATHENS, THE CITY OF ATHENA, IN HONOR OF TH GODDESS PROTECTRESS OF THE CITY. IN THE 7TH CENTURY, B. C., THE CITY-STATE OF ATHENS NAS ALREADY A SMALL NAVAL POWER. ITS FLEET DEFEATED THE PERSIANS AT SALAMIS IN A80 B. C., A VICTORY WHICH, TOGETHER WITH THE LAND BATTLE AT'NARATHON, ESTABLISHED ATHENS AS THE CENTER OF THE ANCIENT WORLD AND USHERED IN THE NGOLDEN AGE OF GREECE.N IT WAS DURING THIS GOLDEN PERIOD THAT ATHENS GAVE TO THE WORLD ITS GREAT WRITERS, PHILOSOPHERS, ARTISTS, SCIENTISTS AND STATESMEN WHOSE WORKS STILL INSPIRE UNIVERSAL ADMIRATION. ALSO, A GREAT BUILDING PRO- GRAM WAS UNDERTAKEN AT THIS TTME AND SUCH BUILDINGS AS THE PARTHENON AND THE TEMPLE OF APTEROS NIKE CNINGLESS VICTORYD WERE ERECTED. silk if ALEXANDER THE GREAT EXTENDED THE GLORY OF GREECE DEEP FORMING A POJERFUL HELLENIC EMPIRE.

ATHENS FOLLONED THE FATE OF THE BYZANTINE EMPIRE BEING DONINATED BY THE FRANKS IN 120A TO 1270 A. D., AND TNO CENTURIES LATER BY THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE. WHEN GREECE THREW OFF THE YOKE OF THE OTTONAN EM- PIRE IN 1833 A. D., ATHENS NAS CHOSEN TO BE THE CAPITAL OF THE NEWLY ESTABLISHED GREEK KINGDOM. AFTER THE SECOND NORLD NAR, GREECE WAGED A BITTER STRUGGLE AGAINST DOMINATION BY THE COMNUNISTS.

CANNES EI A V CANNES IS SITUATED IN THE HEART OF THE FRENCH RIVIERA, THAT STRETCH OF COAST RUNNING FIFTI MILES NORTHEAST FROM TOULON TO THE ITALIAN BORDER. BECAUSE THE WATERS OF THE MEDITERRANEAN ARE PARTICULARLY BLUE ALONG THESE SHORES, THE WHOLE REGION IS KNOWN AS THE COTE D' AzUR. IT IS PROTECTED ON THE NORTH BY THE LOWER RANGES OF THE FRENCH ALPS, TO NHICH IT ONES ITS SPECTACULAR SCENERI AND ITS M LB WINTER CLIMATE. THE SOIL IS FERTILE, PROOUCING LARGE CROPS OF OR- ANGES, LEMONS, OLIVES, AIMONDS, FIGS, PEACHES AND GRAPES. FLOWERS ARE ALSO GROWN COMMERCIALLY FOR USE IN THE MANUFACTURE OF PERFUME. THE SHORELINE CONSISTS OF A SERIES OF BEAUTIFUL SAND BEACHES SEPARA- TED BY ROCKY HEABLANOS. IT IS THESE, TOGETHER NITH THE FINE CLIMATE, WHICH HAVE MADE THE RIVIERA ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST REKNOWNED RESORTS FOR OVER A CENTURY. CANNES DERIVES ITS NAME FROM THE LONG REEDS OR UCANNESU, WHICH FOR- MERLY GREW IN THE MARSH GROUND AROUND THE HARBOR. IT WAS UNDER THE DOMINION OF ROME FOR CENTURIES, BUT FELL TO THE SARACENS DURING THE 700'S AND AGAIN DURING THE 9OO'S A. D. IN THE TENTH CENTURY, CANN S CAM INTO THE POSSESSION OF THE ABBOTS OF LERINSg THEY MAINTAINED CONTROL UNTIL 1788, WHEN IT NON MUNICIPAL FREEDOM. THE MONKS CAME TO THE MAINLAND FROM THE ISLES DE LERINS OFF THE SHORE, WHERE THEY OCCUPIED A FIFTH-CENTURY MONASTERY. IN THE CITADEL ON ANOTHER OF THEIR ISLANDS, THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK WAS CONFINED FROM 1687 TO 1698, CSTE. MARGUERITED. THE OLDEST PART OF CANNES IS THE ISOLATED ROCK CALLED MONT CHEVALIER5 HERE THE MONKS ERECT- ED THE ELEVENTH CENTURY TONER NON USED AS AN OBSERVATORY. UNTIL 183A CANNES REMAINED A HUM LE FISHING VILLAGE. IN THAT YEAR A PLAGUE OF CHOLERA THREATENED NICE AND CAUSED THE MUNICIPAL AUTHORITIES TO FORBID EAST-BOUND TRAVELERS TO CROSS THE RIVER VAR. ONE OF THOSE WHO TURNED BACK TONARD CANNES NAS AN ENGLISHMAN, LORD BROUGHAM, WHO FOUND THE AREA SO ATTRACTIVE THAT HE SETTLED THERE AND INDUCED MANY OF HIS FRIENDS TO DO SO. FROM THIS BEGINNING AS A RESORT, IT HAS BECOME A FAV- ORITE NITH THE NORLD'S ARISTOCRACY5 THEIR SUMPTUOUS VILLAS AND GARDENS DOT THE SHORE AND THE SURROUNDING HILLS. FASHIONABLE HOTELS, CLUBS, RESTAURANTS, AND SHOPS HAVE SPRUNG UP UNTIL THE VILLAGE OF IOO YEARS AGO IS NOW ONE OF THE MOST GLITTERING AND SOPHISTICATED PLAYGROUNDS ON ANY CONTINENT. . g,........., THE HEATHER NAS IDEAL DURING OUR VISIT TO THE FRENCH RIVIERA, MAY 2-5.

THE RIVIERA HAS BEEN ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST REKNONNED RESORTS FOR OVER A CENTURY. ,- AWAY FROM THE BEACH AREA, CANNES HAS MANY BEAUTIFUL PARKS WITH TALL SHADE TREES AND BEAUTIFUL GARDENS.

HERCULES SUPPOSEDLY FOUND, ON THE BEACH, A BOAT DRIVEN ACROSS THE SEA FROM ITALY AND HENCE NAM D THE BEACH nBARKINONA.n LONG AGO THERE WERE PHOENICIAN AND GREEK SETTLEMENTS ALONG THE SHORE. RECORD- ED HISTORY BEGINS ABOUT 230 B. C. WHEN HAMILCAR BARCO, THE FATHER OF HANNIBAL, FOUNDED THE CITY OF nBARCINO.n IN 87A, THE COUNT WILFRED OF BARCELONA OBTAINED THE PRIVILEGE OF DE- CLARING HEREDITY, AND THE CITY BECAME THE CENTER OF AN INDEPENDENT TERRITORY. IN 1137, THE COUNT OF BARCELONA MARRIED THE DAUGHTER OF THE RULER OF ARAGON AND CATALONIA. DURING THIS PERIOD, THE PORT BE- CAME THE GREAT TRADING CENTER OF THE REGION. DURING THE ILTH AND 15TH CENTURIES, IT RANKED WITH VENICE AND GENOA AS ONE OF THE GREAT PORTS OF THE WORLD. THE CITY LOST SOME OF ITS IMPORTANCE IN 1A92, NHEN ARAGON AND CASTILE WERE INCORPORATED. THE DECLINE OF THE PORT WAS CAUSED BY THE EDICT OF ISABELLA FORBIDDING NON'CATALONIANS TO TRADE NITH THE NEW WORLD, AND IT WAS NOT UNTIL 1778 THAT THE CATALONIANS WERE ALLOWED TO RESUME FREE TRADE WITH THE AMERICAS. DUE TO THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION, THE PORT OF BARCELONA BECAME PROSPEROUS AGAIN IN THE NINETEENTH CENTURY AND HAS REMAINED ONE OF THE MOST ACTIVE CITIES IN SPAIN. V , OUR VISIT TO BARCELONA FROM MAY 15-20 WAS CONSIDERED BY MANY TO BE TH UBEST LIBERTY IN THE MEDITERRAN AN.n IT IS PERHAPS THE SPANISH TOWN BEST KNOWN IN EUROPE.
