t zwwdzszlguipped to provide anti-aircraft and anti-submarine protection to larger ships, was 1118 feet long, and had a beam of
45 feet. l
This beautifully proportioned vessel is meant to be lasting tribute to the memory of the man, Henry Matson MULLINNIX.
MULLINNIX was the first naval vessel to bear the name of one of America's most gifted "Air Admirals". Rear Admiral
MULLINNIX died in action while serving aboard his flagship, the escort carrier, LISCOMBE BA Y. LISCOMBE BAY was
torpedoed and sunk by an enemy submarine off Makin Island in the Gilbert Islands area, on November 24, 1943. Rear Admiral
MULLINNIX was reported missing in action following that catastrophe and was officzally declared dead a year later. For his
services he was awarded the Legion of Merit and the Purple Heart Medal posthumously.
On March 7, 1958, MULLINNIX was commissioned a part of the United States Navy. Mrs. Kathryn M ULLINNIX, the
widow of Admiral MULLINNIX, presented the officers and crew with Admiral M ULLINNIX 's personal flag and sword as a
symbol of Naval Tradition and as a symbol of high standards for M ULLINNIX to achieve and maintain. The standards of one
man, the lives of many, and the cold new steel were now linked together by a ship called M ULLINNIX.
MULLINNIX spent her first couple of years spreading good will and making friends in Central and South America. She
escorted the USS RANGER "around the Horn" and later was the flagship for COMMANDER SOUTH ATZANTIC FORCE.
The MUX'sfirst visit to a foreign port was Port of Spain, Trinidad. After Trinidad, M ULLINNIX continued to spread good will
in the ports of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil: Racife, Brazilg Tampico, Mexico, Montevideo, Uraguayg and Mardel Plate, Argentina.
In the fall of 1959, the men of the MUX were called upon to take the HMULLINNIX MANNERU to the Mediterranean.
Upon arriving in the Mediterranean,MULLINNIX wasxthe newest United States Destroyer in the Mediterranean in addition to
being the Flagship for DESTROYER SQUADRON 82. As such, she was visited by many dignitaries including
West German Minister STRAUSS.:Also, while' in the Mediterranean, MULLINNIX was honored to have been selected to act a
primary escort ship for .President EISENHOWER when he travelled from Athens to Tunis to Toulon aboard the USS DES
MOINES. In Toulon, the President spoke directly to the crew by radio and congratulated them on doing a magnificent job.
Between 1959 and 1961, MULLINNIX had visited many European cities countries including Naples, Barcelona, Cannes,
Athens, La Spezut, Istanbul, Malta, Taormina, Palermo, Gaeta, St. Jean, Sam un, and Bregli in the Black Sa.

In late 1968, while undergoing training at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, MULLINNIX received a message to cease all drills and
proceed at best possible on a search and rescue mission about 150 miles from GITMO to take under tow the USS TULLULAH
adrift in the seas. MULLINNIX ydned up with the TULLULAH just before dark and towed her back to GI TMO. This
foreshadowed a similar event in GITMO in 1973, when MULLINNIX was again asked to help a vessel in distress, this time the
tug 'MISS Y". MISSYwas towing a dredge and a barge. The barge broke loose in heavy seas and without any radar the MISS Y
On 20 February 1969, MUX was off the coast of Vietnam providing naval gunfire support to U. S. ground troops in the
Republic of South Vietnam. During the first gunline patrol, she fired numerous harrassment and call fire missions, primarily in
support of the First Marine defending the Da Nang harbor complex, and for the Third Marine Division along the DMZ.
MULLINNUI then steamed south toward the Island of Sumatra, Indonesia. Spending most of her time on station just south of
the DMZ Q THE 'MIGHTYMUX "fired in support of the Third Marine Division. The M UX completed her third and final gunline
patrol during this West PAC cruise on 15 July 1969. During the 83 days on three gunline patrols in the I and II Corps areas,
MULLINNIX provided naval gunfire support to Allied Forces south of the DMZ, Danang, and in the vicinities of Cam Rahn
Bay, Nha Trang and Qui Nhen. During those three patrols, ammunition was fired in response to call.s for fire at 1,627 targets at
an average range of nearly 17, 000 yards. For her naval gunfire support performance for Fiscal Year 1969, MULLINNIX was
named "TOP GUN "among the gunline destroyers. A proud crew returned after having visited Kobe, Yokosuka, Pearl Harbor,
San Francisco, San Diego, and Acapulco enroute home.
In the beginning of 1970, MULLINNIX went south to the warm waters of the caribbean to conduct six weeks of training.
'After this training she deployed to the Mediterranean for operations with the Sixth Fleet. During the cruise MULLINNIX also
visited Tunisia, Crete, Greece, Malta and France, just to name a few.
In February 1972, MULLINNIX departed for a good will cruise to Central America and visited such ports as Vera Cruz,
Limen, Curacao, Panama and Costa, returning home in March. In early April, MULLINNIX was required to get underway
within 48 hours to return to Vietnam. '1MUX" arrived off the coast in May and fired over 500 projectiles in the first few hours.
MULLINNIX was recognized in a formal presentation of the Gunnery "E " for excellence. Once again a proud crew returned to
Norfolk in October 1972.
A much needed shipyard period began in January 1973. After such a long period in the shipyard and the addition of many
crew members MULLINNIX headed south for training in GI TMO. Arriving home in December M ULLINNIX 's crewmembers
celebrated the holiday season.
On 27 February 1974, MULLINNLX' departed Norfolk on a six month deployment to the Indian Ocean Middle East. During
the dephryment MULLINNIX visited Puerto Rico, Trinidad, Brazil, Ivory Coast, Angola, Mozambique, Kenya, French
Territory of the Ifars and Isas, Pakistan, Oman, Iran, Kuwait, Bahrain and Mauritius. MULLINNIX gave much assistance to
two ships during the deployment in the Indian Ocean. MULLINNIX towed the French Frigate BALNY for two days in the Gulf
of Aden. Later, MULLINNIX gave assistance to the Merchant Ship ANNA MARIA following a casualty whwh left her with no
1975 was full of fleet exercises. MULLINNIX increased her readiness by participating in COMPTUEX If-75, AGATE'
PUNCH COMPTUEX 1-76 and in CARIBEX.
Druing CARIBEX, MULLINNIX received word that she would deploy to the Mediterranean in October, three months
ahead of schedule. Upon arrival in Norfolk, on 26 August, the crew prepared her, and with much perserverance and dedication,
the MULLINNIX was "ready".
On 3 October 1975, MULLINNIX steamed to the Mediterranean. While in the Mediterranean, MULLINNIX operated with
NATO Units in the Naval On Call Forces, Mediterranean. The other participants included Turkey, British and Italian naval
vessels. Ports visited during this deployment included Izmir and Antalya, Turkeyg Sardinia, Italy, France and Spain, not to
mention Gibraltar and Tangier, Morroco.

Izmir, the MUX 's first port in Turkey, gave the crew a taste of
metropolitan Asia. A city of 400, 000 people, it housed many modern
traces of western civilization but still retained a definite flair of being in
another world. The town offered many forms of entertainment to the
crew including an Amerwan Air Force Base which gave us the
opportunity to see and talk to Americans living abroad for the first time
during the cruise. Turkey, a moslem country is dotted with minerettes,
stone towers, throughout the countryside where people dwelled and
from these monoliths each morning and evening you can hear the
Moslems being called to prayer. Our introduction to Turkey is
memorable. The MUX crew went on shopping tours, visited ancient
Greek ruins and even had a taste of home.

Antalya is a port city on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey
nd ' turequesly situated on steep cliffs overlooking the GuU of
Antalya. In recent years the growth of tourism has opened new
avenues for development. The city's secluswn from industry, it's
miles of uncrowded beaches, it 's palm-shaded streets and parks,
' ' ' 't in it's vicinity
and the great wealth of relics of classical antiqui y
ha accelerated its converswn into a Turkish Riviera .
This small town on the tourqouise coast of Turkey was visited
t o times by the MUX. In contrast to Izmir, the town is smaller
and not as acquainted with Americans. The Turkish government

PER GNNEL TRANSFER
This operation, performed while underway, can be and is an
extremely dangerous one. When a person is taken by a bosn's
chair from one moving ship to another while the two ships are
traveling 100 ft. apart and at the speed of roughly 12 knots, this
can be easily imagined.
First a line is shot across to another ship. The small shot line
is then connected to a larger line, then attached to a larger line,
then to an even larger line, until you have steel cables connecting
the two ships. Wenches and pulleys are rigged in a fashion to
enable the transfer from one ship to the next. Before the human
cargo is sent across, the lines are tested by a dummy weight
load, then the real thing.
At the heart of this operatwn is the seamanship abilities and
teamwork effort of 1st Division, whush at all times being
supervised by Senior Petty Officers, Officers, the Captain, and
intensly by the person being transferred.
A beautiful hillside seaport on the southern coast of
Sardinia, Cagluzri is the home of many 2 and 3 masted
schooners and great seafood restaurants. Being a casual and
relaxed atmosphere, this town was a vacation spot for many of
the islanders. The warm, friendly atmosphere was totally to
the liking of the crew. Other memories of Cagliari will include
eating delwacies such as octopus and squid for the first time.

Naples is situated on the north shore of the Bay
of Naples. It is Italy's second busiest port. It is near
many points of interest, including Pompeii, the
Island of Capri and only 120 miles from Rome. As a
result, tourism is one of the city's chief source of
income. From the Bay you can see the famous Mount
Vesuvius, the volcano that buried the city of
Pompeii. Naples has more than 200 churches, many
of which date from the 13th and 14th century. Also,
the university, dating from 1221, is southe It l '

Pompeii is 12 miles Southeast of Naples and

a volcano which sealed it's doom during 40 hours of
eruptwn in 79 A.D. Excavation, commencing over 200
years ago, has provided modern men with their most
vivui testimony to the life of classical antiquity. It took
less than 3 days after the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius to
completely bury the city of Pompeii in some 20-23
feet of ashes and lava fragments. Excavators have
made the drama more vivid by recreating the very
shapes of the victims. The city's structures, decora-

remarkably preserved. Pompeii will forever remain in

Each ship has a yearly requirement to exercise its visit-and-search, boarding the prize crew
party. When the destroyer MULLINNIX was called upon to assist the frigate Aylwin with her drill,
a real 'Mrates' welcome" was prepared, involving nearly everyone on the ship - from the captain
on down. 'S
On boarding, the visit-and-search party from the Aylwin found the following "offic121,ls" waiting
on the quarterdeck: the 'political adviser" - Cmdr. Thomas K. Anderson, commanding officer of
the MULLINNIX, who spoke broken and disorganized English: the "segundo commandante" - Lt.
Cmdr. Laurence A. Bissonnette, the executive officer, who spoke only German: a "United Nations
observer" - Lt. Gosta Af Klint, on exchange to the MULLINNIX from the Royal Swedish Navy,
who spoke only Swedish, and an assortment of other motley characters who continuously heaped
verbal abuse upon the visitors.
After meeting the boarding party on the quarterdeck, the 'politwal adviser" took the group to
the bridge to meet the "captain, "Fireman C. K Fu, who spoke only Chinese. Fu stands about five
feet tall but was an impressive figure attired in mess dress with large medals and the captain 's hat.
He phzyed his part to perfection.
The boarding party then inspected the ship's documents, manifests, passenger lists and all
other required papers, most of which were written in authentic Chinese. Somewhat confused and
perplexed, they departed.

NX is composed of Quartermasters, Yeomen, Personnelmen,
Postal Clerks, and Hospital Corpsmen. It functions under the Navigator and
the Executive Officer. The Quartermasters work from the Pilot House. This is
the area where the ship is navigated from vuz charts and various electronic
devices. Quartermasters are knowledgeable of rules of the road, honors
rendered in passing other ships and charting our course. These are the men
that use the funny looking device called a sextant and by shooting stars help
determine our course.
The Yeoman and Personnelmen in the ship's office are the paperwork
fiends. Personnelmen provide service to the crew in the way of personnel
transfers, requests for schools, reenlistments and are responsible for proper
care of service records and service record entries. In this office all mail is
received, routed and accounted for by the yeomen. All letters, family grams,
reports, instructions, and notices originated by M ULLINNIX, are typed in the
ship's office. A masterfile of directives issued by higher authority are also
centrally located in this small but productive space,
Our Hospital Corpsmen, needless to say, receive quite a few patients per
day whether it be seasickness, common cold or to give routine shots prior to
deployments. MULLINNIX HM 's are also qualified to do minor surgery if
The Postal Clerks are also on the M UX morale squad. Mail call is always a
welcome word. Our PCS provide the same services available at the local
postoffweg stamps, money orders, parcel post and many others. We are always
glad to keep them busy--mostly on the receiving end.
The Mediterranean cruise held many challenges for the Supply Department and through careful planning, dedication, and
hard work by the personnel of Supply, all challenges were successfully overcome.
Supply 's goal was to provide the shipmates of the M ULLINNIX with all the conveniences and luxuries of home in a foreign
country. The ship's store kept everyone well supplied with the familiar toiletries and the latest pre-recorded music. It was a
fulltime job keeping the vending machine filled and coke and sprite flowing but it was done almost without a hitch. Much credit
for the high morale of the crew goes to the ship servicemen and their work. Fresh produce was ordered, inspected, and loaded
in every port we visited. Who can forget the juicy blood oranges of Italy? The careful preparation of food by our experienced
mess management speczalist kept everyone well nourished and healthy. The storekeepers provuie an important, but less
appreciated service on the MULLINNIX. They procure, receive, and store what it takes to keep the ship running. Sometimes it
means work to repair a casualty, but thank goodness the storekeepers have the repair parts to get us home. Throughout the
cruise the M ULLINNIX visited seven countries and each one had a differenct currency. The disbursing clerks did a fantastic
job of juggling the seven currencies and provuied banking services to all in addition to their daily job of maintaining pay records
and paying people.
To sum it up, the Supply Department 's goal is to provide all services to its customers on the MULLINNIX. The goal was
reached and sustained throughout the Mediterranean deployment.

The BT's or Boiler Technicians is entrusted with the very life of the
ship: The operation and maintenance of the four main propulswn boilers
and all related gear. In addition, they are responsible for the
inventorying, storage, and consumption of fuel oil and the freshwater
supply. Without the steam, the Mullinnisc would be nothing than a grey
hulk in the water left to the mercy of the winds and tides.
BT 's supply the ship with life giving steam for maneuvering, mess
preparation, and for the hotel services such as hot water and heat in
compartments throughout the ship.
Altogether this elite force of the Engineering Department functions
in an unsung and unheralded manner, highly competent and efficient,
secure in the knowledge that no small part of the readiness ofMullinniZ1:,
is due directly to their efforts.

The IC gang on board MULLINNIX is one of if not the smallest work
centers, consisting of IC1 BARNETT, IC3 WIEST, ICFN WARD and ICFN
PEASE. The ICmen are responsible for maintenance on various interior
communication systems such as announcing systems, phone communwations,
many alarm systems, ships control systems, ships entertainment, gyro-compass
and plotting systems. Last, but not least, the movies! At sea, IC men stand
watches on gyrocompasses and are called upon to repair any of the systems that
might fail. Inport IC men stand sounding and security watch.

This evolutum involves all hands. Each man on the ship has
a general quarters station. GQ as it is called is when the ship is
at maximum fighting readiness. Some are assigned to repair
partiesg some in the magazines passing ammo and some man the
phones on circuits throughout the ship. The ship sets condition
Zebra for maximum water tight integrity. Thus, the effective
fighting team is set for whatever may occur. MUX membefs
have been drilled many, many times and feel comfortable
exercising GQ. At the sound of the gong we are off and running
to our GQ station.
