E11il'1g50T1 FIRST LIEUTENANT ASSISTANT FIRST LIEUTENANT The Deck Department is a versatile unit and its responsi- bilities range from highlining and refueling to conducting a gun shoot or a 1-Alpha. The department is broken down into five divisions in order to accomplish these tasks. First Division is responsible for all topside spaces for- ward of the superstructure, including the anchors, accom- modation ladders, one, two, and three hatches, and all the as- sociated equipment. ln addition, they maintain three troop com- partments and four troop heads. Second division is in charge ofthe ship's seventeen landing craft and the four boat davits. During a 1-Alpha they man the boats and the success or failure of this evolution depends heavily on the talent and training of these men. Third Division maintains the topside spaces aft of the su- perstructure. Operating four and five hatches, putting Mike boats in the water, refueling and towing are the special opera- tions performed by this division. In addition, they are responsi- ble for two troop compartments and two troop heads. Fourth Division's functions center around the ship's four twin 40-MM mounts and their directors. They also supervise stowage of all ammunition and are accountable for the small arms in the armory. Side Cleaners division operates out of the Bos'n locker on the forecastle and their tasks include issuing paint and cleaning gear, sewing canvas, and painting the sides. af 34 30, S' I X , ENS D,C.

Duff SUPPLY OFFICER SHIP'S STORE OFFICER The Supply Department has the task of ordering, storing, issuing, and accounting for all food and stores for the ship and provides various services for the crew. Although com- posed of only two divisions, its duties are numerous and widespread. The S-1 division is broken down into sev- eral sections. The commissarymen are re- sponsible for preparing and serving the food for the crew and embarked troops. They also take care of the stowage and refrigerations of all food supplies. The ship's company and embarked troops are paid through the disbursing office, and in addition, the office maintains all pay records, and pays bills incurred by the ship. The ship's servicemen operate the laun- dry, barber shop, and ship's store. The store keepers run the sodafountain and small stores. Finally there are the mess cooks who clean up after meals, maintain the neatness of the mess decks, and perform odd jobs in the galley and scullery. The officer's stewards make up S-5 divi- sion. They cook in their own galley and serve the officer's meals in the wardroom. They also maintain the officers' staterooms and the Troop Officers Quarters. .

LT F,T, Hughes ENGINEERING OFFICER III x LTJG T.E, Kaldahl 3-M OFFICER E GI EERI G DEPARTME T The Engineering Department is responsible basically for operating the main engines and as- sociated machinery which provide the steam and electrical power to get the ship underway and then keep it moving. To carry out its func- tions, the department is divided into five divisions. "A" division maintains and op- erates the evaporator units, heat- ing system, refrigeration equip- ment, and much of the ship's other auxiliary equipment. The engine- men are also responsible for main- taining the engines in the ship's landing craft and vehicles. "B" division's job is to convert water to steam in the ship's boil- ers and also to store and test the ship's oil and water supplies. The electricians and internal communicationmen of "E" diViSiOH maintain and test ship's internal communications, lighting system, winch motors and batteries. "M" division's responsibility centers around the turbines, the shaft, and the generators, and it is through their efforts that the pow- er which moves the ship is pro- duced through the main propulsion system. The carpenters, shipfitters, and damage controlmen make up "R" divison. They must be con- stantly prepared to combat fires and insure the watertight inter- grity of the ship. They also make repairs to the ship's landing craft and to various equipment through- out the ship. The 3-M system concerns all divisions within the ship but the Engineering Department coordi- nates the system through the MDCS office and the 3-M officer. 34-5523! gms, , , , , . ,., -.V -. v . . f .

Hensley X X We were overjoyed to see the FREMONT appear through the haze. TUR OVER Amphibious Squadron TWELVE arrived in Carboneras, Spain on 27 November and turnover began as soon as they had anchored. By late afternoon all of our pertinent ma- terials and information had been transferred to the USS FREMONT QLPA-445 and PHIB- STRIKFORSIXTHFLT 3-68 was underway for home. The next day we celebrated both turnover and Thanksgiving with a magnificent roast turkey dinner with all the trimmings on the mess decks. ? I i The Old Mule rounds the bend. We arrived in Morehead City, North Caro- lina at midnight on 11 December and spent the next eight hours off-loading our Marines and their equipment. The next afternoon we arrived at Pier 11 and were greeted by families and friends. Little Creek had never looked better. Q .. H0 TLAT Y The band was there to greet us.

PCSTSCRIPT Yes, our 1968 Med 'cruise was finally' over. After, , steaming almost 15,000 miles, consuming one million gallons of fuel, handling' 16,000 mes'- sages, expending 1700 rounds of 40 MM ammunition, and .holding 5 am- phibious landinzs. our 'iob' was finished. It had been a cruise which none of us would soon forget, with lots of hard work and a lot of good times. But as we doubled up our lines at Pier 11 our thoughts were not on the cruise, but on that long-awaited homecoming. WALBWDBTII Cruise Book Glllue PUlLl8HlNGm 918 Welt ill! Street COMPANY Norfolk.
