This was the land ot the completed, liberty was granted. Many were tired 4 Navarro was to spend two weeks in but again the Navyman never misses a port. We 'These two weeks proved to offer many drank our beer and saw the country. No one was lexperiences.QThe men found the people very polite .tsimpler.i,lThey bargained on Black Market Ally took inthe sights of Tokyo. Here in Yokosuka, ,tl'1e2Ship's Party was held at the Kanko Hotel. Fine food and drink plus a very good tloor show added upfftola-huge' success. But like all good things must end, the time Came to depart tor new experiences and new people. T . The next port to be assailed by the Navarro was B11CknerfBay,Qkinawa. We arrived at our destina- sdd at our departure for Namazu. This was a short stop, just to oft-load troops. We then set sail for Sasebo, arriving on 31 March, liberty was again a selfish thought. Men worked hard to keep the ship clean and keep their early liberty. On our last day the dependents of military r personnel were embarked for their yearly shopping tour of Hong Kong. Out oi the l20 dependents, 75 were women. The journey was more like a party. We arrived in l-long Kong on April 6 and debarked "'.i if nf ,,,,.-"""- " ,,..--ff" A . ts . our human cargo. Theylaidifsiege to this land of rickshaws. 'This was also ACI shoppingrspot xfor men. Tailors andlshoemakers did a tremendous business. Liberty was granted and the men thoroughly en- joyed it. As usual time ran out. We picked up our passengers and headed back to Sasebo. Enroute, we think military history was made. A dance was held on the crew's mess deck. Everyone had a ball and the Captain was presented with a "Petticoat Plaque." The women expressed their gratitude for such a wonderful cruise. We spent just one night in Sasebo and then headed for Naha, Okinawa. After embraking troops the ship pulled into Buck- ner Bay until the Zlst of April. With only l97 troops aboard the operation was easily accomplished. Operation Sea Turtle was accomplished on the shore of Pohang, Koreap it was-our one and only complete lA. Going back to Naha was another story, one full Battalion made the trip. After off-load- ing, the men enjoyed their first liberty in two weeks. The next stop was considered the first step home. Arriving in Apra Harbor, Guim, lVl.l., on May 9th, the Navarro crew was put to work cleaning up the ship forfhomeg Here iwas an island full of beaches .Eiandfifiplenty ofrbeer, everyone got- his ,share of both. Many cases of sunburn were suffered. Again, the Recreation Committee came-though with a party, at GabGab. beach. lt was decided the Deck department was' toot-muchtifor the Engineering Department at Tugsof War. , y l , V Beforefyou knewrit, the time came for the trip home. Cn May .2l, the Navarro set a B-line course for LongfBeach. Ourfhoping to be the first ones home out of PHIBRON SEVEN almost came true. Four days out of Long Beach, we crossed the path of the U.S.S. CAVALIER and U.S.S. CABILDO. We ioined forma- tion and proceeded at l2 knots for the remainder of the voyage. y , We entered the breakwater early on the morning of lune Sth. behind the U.S.S. CAVALIER. Many men were thinking of the past four months remembering experiences most people only dream about. To the oldtimers it was all in twenty? to the Boots of yes-2 terday, "'When do we start back." A ' ' ' Hood, lackie, FTSN Commander CHARLES A.

G. lst Division "Anchor-Clankers", "Rope-Chokers" name them what you will! By any name a division to be proud of and as aood a qroup of men as the Navy could assemble for the job. Walk forward of the mess deck and you'll be almost sure to be in First Division spaces. The center and pride ofthe lst Division is the Quarterdeck and its "Brasso" inspired sheen. l-Iona Kona, Sasebo and Yokosuka in that order seems to be the favorite liberty ports overseas, but somehow the lure of the F' ar East seems to fade away as the Long Beach breakwater rises out of the sea to welcome us home. The men of the First Division, past and present will always remember the days, storm and calm, qood and bad, spent at work and liberty and what could be better for the memory. 2nd Division Sec. Div. is the Largest Division on the ship Consisting of 54 men, 24 assault boats, one cargo hold and deck area for stowage of the boats. Being the mission of the ship to land troops and equipment on the beach points out the importance of the assault boats. We can land 924 Combat troops or l9 jeeps and trailors plus two lO-ton trucks in one wave. Another divisional duty is riggin the accommodation ladders and providing crews and boats for liberty runs. Since the Division is large we have several working areas under the supervision of well qualified Petty Officers.

A story oi the Division is incomplete without a bouquet to Quigley, now in 3rd Division and Minneci's helper, "Mother F lan- agan"! 3rd Division Dawn breaks over the "Happy Nav" in a guiet and peaceful ocean somewhere west of Pearl.

And down in the compartment Zasada C"But Captain, l only rate two ribbons"J is telling "Lover" Melvin and "Seaman" Councilman how he does everything by hand. "Pickin" Pagan is telling anyone who will listen how, pure boy he is, he only left the ship once in the entire cruise and that was to go on Shore Patrol. He will certainly be un- happy when he finds he has the duty the first week-end in the states. "Watchstander" Davis is getting ready to stand the morning watch.

"Pappa San" DELA CRUZ - the combination of over- acting at Gab Gab Beach, and getting some blood into his alcohol stream was just too much. Even though he maintains that it was a left-handed beer bout, the fact remains that it takes a four hand working party to cart him from his bunk to the coffee mess. Who is that lanky, skinny shadow pour- ing over the Ordnance Gang from the morning watch till IGSO? Why, Freddie the Eire Controlman of course. Bhudda-Belly Bodenhammer, the only surviving mess "cook of the Last Supper whose disdain for odorous, noisy :berthing compartments and whose efforts towards rectifying this condition is unending, is soon to give up this glorious Canoe for his snake pit on the beach. 'T ' All that muttering on the fantail, when translated, is just Whitecalf assuring him- self that if his Grandpappy had this 5"!38, he'd have put the Paleface on Reservations. If "jack Benny" Person would just stop to think a little more about? this aviation electrician business, he'd soon realize that "Any fool can make a rate, but only God can make a Gunner's Mate." Our truest representative of the Lone Star State, Thompson, that "lost wetback", really is a cowboy. Kind and human, gives his horse plenty of rest. All that activity on the aft gun deck - could it be that Laurent has that much inter- est in his striker's instruction and well-be- ing? At any rate, Spence, baby of the division, must have paid close attention to his "Sea Daddy", for he made the highest grade in the group on the E-3 exam. And what's with this refugee from the third division, Bolt? Can the deck force pro- duce a potential "Educated Gunner's Mate." I-Ias "Thirsty Thurston" finally realized that the distilleries make the stuff faster than he can drink it? Or maybe, as he says, he's just trying to drink it all up so the rest of us will stay sguared away. ,And a warning to one and all, hither and yon, if you've got any Playboys you haven't read, I-IIDE 'EM QUICK here comes Mr. Zemene with that hungry, haunted look? Or perhaps he's just loking for his ILLUS- TRIOUS WI-IIPPING DOG. "Silent Willy" Willburn, one of the finest Gunner's Mates and the division's most recent "Brownbagger" was more interest- ed in mail call than liberty call. A A Division "A" DIVISION CHARACTERISTICS Now draw near and take heed all ye lowly landlubbers as I pronounce these twenty-one men worthy and highly qualified members of the "Olde Canoe Clube". After four months and five days on the briny deep they have developed the characteristics of the stouthearted men who have passed them before. Many of our ranks long only to drop anchor at Long Beach. Among those home-loving are the faithful brothers-in-law com- binations and other assorted lonely hearted brown baggers. There are others, though, who have reason to believe that the world's only women are still in Iapan. The call of the Pacific will draw one of our members back to Guam for a tour R G R at Gab Gab beach. I-Ie yearns only for beer, sea water and sunshine. Far below the second deck the cry of "Don't waste my water" issues forth from one of our gungho Navy men who dreams oddly of his discharge date. The call of Iapan is still in the heart of the one who claims that dim lights, beer, and women make his eyes water. Destiny will surely let him return. ' And then there is a small but strong group who claim they can find happiness in the U.S. without having to sail the seas to find it. These are the humble characteristics of the piston-pushing celebrities who maintain and repair our early vintage landing craft engines. y "Blessed are they who do labor after sunset for they shall be called "snipes".

They live on nothing but an oily smell. We have Ensign Dill at the head of the clan, Bones Clark and Pappy Pinnell l-lis Chiefs and second in Command. Then there's Besse May the man with the first class crow. His job is our division P.O. Beneath him is a surly group, about fifteen men who don't give a hoot. As DC. P.O. l can truth- fully say is wild Bill Bailey from out Texas way, Iewell and Bod- gers are the oilking gang, but l will not dramatize the oilking's names. Down through the demons we will go till we find Mouse Salter the Turn To P.O. Another step down and right in his place, we find featherhead Bogers with a smile on his face. That ends the division as far as P.O.'s, but stick around l have ten firemen to go. At the top of the list l'm sure you'll find Anderson ci Elsis with a rate on their mind. We have many good men, all ready, and eager like Ladrow, Acker and that Ironheaded Enger. l have a few more names before l close my book, like Sullivan, Thompson, Dennis and Van l-Took. Now everyone has been mentioned with the exception of Shrum. Someone had to go on Mess Cooking, and he was the one. There is not a demon here with wealth or fame, but they are all good BT's, so remember their names. E Division Climbing a mast to replace a light bulb to a complete rewiring job is part of the gamut of E Division duties. Quiet workers behind the electrical scene the "sparks" of E Division can become the Navarro's most wanted men in a power failure. To say that E Division is responsible for the upkeep of all motors, generators and electrical power distribution aboard ship loses some of its effectiveness in the jargon shuffle. lt's when the lights come on again after you've been caught in the dark with half of you on and half of you off, the keys to your locker somewhere on the deck, that E division burns its niche near the top of your totem pole.

M Division Our place is in the hole, Our job to make the engines go. We furnish the ship its power and light, To do this we sometimes work half the night. Generators, pumps and main engines are our care, We have eighteen men for cleaning and repair. To wash paint and clean bilges is against our will, But we do it for Mr. Dill. He's the top man of this clan, He'll do anything for you if he can. Due to Mr. Perdock's know how and skill, ls the reason main propulsions are on his bill. Next in line is our hustling E-eight, We do the work because he has the rate. He's a short little guy, about five foot five. He works us until we're more dead than alive. Then there is Owens our Division P.O., He walks around while we're on the go. On a greyhound he'd rather be, We know even if they are in tow. Lathes, grinders and things you know, Speer is the one who makes them go. Ptudasill is next a hash mark second class, He's not too rough, but he takes no sass. Stewart is a second class too??? He walks around and says turn-to. At third class there are six of us, To get us to work they make such a fuss. Then there is Bell third class CMMJ, He's well liked by all the men. Next there is Whitesell "MM3", Soon he will be out willingly and free. Ryan is the next one in line, His discharge is getting closer all the time. Next there is Clouthier, a hardy young man, He is trying to get duty in lapan. Roench is the next one, but he's hard to see, Since he is ready to add to his family tree. Next there is Sutter, a hard working guy, He does his work and never asks why. Next are the firemen, the hard working lads, They would much sooner be in their pads. Don't get me wrong about the non-rated men, They do the work of over ten. Besides their daily watches and turn-to, They have many special duties to do. Harper is sometimes referred to as "Snake", A hard working man, says our hustling eight. Peveto is a sailor from out Texas way, He wants to go back there some day. Grant is a M. H. striker who works in the shop, On grinders and lathes, he doesn't want to stop A hot rodder we have named "Waldo" Burch, The way he drives will send you to church. Down in the bilges, you'll find Iones, Chipping paint and scrapping his bones. Stewart C.T. can light off a pump, But a job he dislikes is cleaning the sump. Fehlinqer last of the bunch, . He's on mess cooking, we'll see him at lunch. R Divlslon A small Division with a big job to do. The 15 men of "R" Div. come in three types, Shipfit- ters, Pipefitters and Damage Controlmen. Their daily schedule may cover anything from a clogged drain to repairs of one of the 24 assault boats. All of the ships repair parties are run by men from R Div. Morale of this outfit is very high, Spirit, "Can Do," and Reputation envi- able. Some of their spare time is spent in various forms of recreation such as, Pat Patterson, Guitarist of note, Leader of the Ship's' Combo. loe Esguibel, Bantamweight Champ of Pac. Fit. and Marty Martinez runner up in the Pac- Flt. Welterweight. Our Division Officer who received Cto our knowledge? the only "Gold Brick Award," in the U. S. Navy. ' Our, "Can Do," spirit is even carried over on the beach pointed out by the ability to make use of any opportunity for getting into trouble. ' Front Row, from left: PANNELL, A.

OC Division: We were always told that it takes a special kind of sailor to fill an operations rate. But in CDC Division the usual qualifica- tions are not enough. To be a quali- fied signalman, radioman, or elec- tronics technician is not enough. N o, in addition you must be a combina- tion of magician, stoic, lover, and wino. lt's a wonder we all aren't psychopaths after being terrorized by that fearsome twosome, Genung and Geiger. When we think of the torments we've had to endure, it gives us great satisfaction to know that we are still alive. Who else but a spe- cial kind of man could bear up un- der the gross injustices we've had delivered on us: being locked out of the signal shack for weeks, having no music in Main Comm, not being made to sweep down when they pipe svveepers, and having to stand inspection when we rate sleeping oft the mid. Why, it would drive lesser men to drink. ' Speaking of drink, this is a fine WestPac diversion which helps save us from total breakdown. lt's not hard to forget our attlictions when vv'e're lounging in a Yokosuka bar with a little io-san in one hand and a loottle ot Akadama in the other. The great orators, Plemons and l-lamilton, can tell you all about this sport. And during lulls on board, We can cheer ourselves with the thought ot two-blocking Shaw, or piping music into Main Comm. without Mr. Stoddard finding out, or the prospect of that lovely transfer always soothes us. Some day, We'll look loack on this WestPac cruise and think We had a marvelous time. But then some day Crossley might make Seaman. Radiomen on the iob Front Row, from left: CAWILLE, S. G., HONEKE, R.

YOKOSUKA - Had special charm to Guer- rero, for he received a letter from Olga 7 and Iones - Well he was anxious to greet his old friend Acadoma CT-Bird of Iapani. Loftis enjoyed Watching the Yokosuka girls dive from bum-boats for 50 Yen pieces. OKTNAWA - Provided everyone an op- portunity for financial and physical recu- peration. SASEBO - Brings back memories to Loftis of fried squid Cwhich Mr. Chichester also en- ioyedi and Youriko. HONG KONG - Where Guerrero and Thomas liked the split-skirts which revealed such beautiful legs. And Hruza saw so much he couldn't remember it all. Of course he kept calm. Naturally Hammons started his education enjoying the wine, song, and - Well he didn't Want to leave. GUAM - Dean and Tones drank, swam, and drank. Bellew re-newed old acquaint- ances and even took leave. He really liked the beautiful beaches! THEN HOME -- And all Were happy but Bjerke and Hammons. Bjerke was sad for he missed the Subic Bay monkeys, and Hammons was equally sad for he finally became an authority on Ear Eastern love and never had the chance to prove it.

With no holidays or overtime pay - since men never cease to get hungry. The boys do an excel- lent job under the watchful eye of Chief Shields. And nobody forgets to get paid, or register allotments, or get change for the coke machines, so a big hand to Chief Stewart and his gang.

There were 'no dramatic epics of surgery at sea, however we did have a few brief moments of glory when we had to care for two seriously ill de- pendents during the l-long Kong trip. Otherwise, our work consisted of treating common maladies, performing minor diagnostic procedures, and implementing the Navy's routine preventive medicine program. Due to the paucity of disease aboard the Navarro, one might say that we fulfilled our function of being the watchdogs over the crew's health. From left: CRITTENDEN, S. S., PEARSON, M.

' X Division Sustained with service records, diaries, enlistment contracts, ID cards, etc. X Division, its defenses held together with paper clips and staples, wages its daily battle with paper. Part of the outer flank between BuPers and the contending forces, the ship's office is led by Rasmussen, PNIQ his two lieutenants, Rhodes, PNZQ l-lamner, YN2p and his rear guard, Morehead, PN3 and Ascher SN. Although sometimes overrun with outbursts of noise and con- fusion, the team in ship's office, when the smoke clears, always gets its objective. Behind the flanks is the Captain's Office, headquarters outfit of the unit. "Captained" by I-lart, YNC, and backed up with I-ledum, YN 2, and MclVlahan, SA the Captain's Office, while it is more sedate than the ship's office, is, nevertheless, a salient pro- jection in the sytem.

Mem- bers of the Navarro team with brief resume of their record are indicated below: B1LL ELLISON, SN-Pitcher who had a record of ll and 2 and hit for a 370 average. Ellison hit 9 homers in the 19 games and was the big gun of the Navarro attack. He also is a gifted outfielder when not pitching. BILL RASMUSSEN, PNl-Manager and first baseman took the team over after they had suffered 6 straight losses in the Philippines and molded a winner. Has managed teams for the past decade and instilled in the team the winning habit. At lst base he hit for a 380 average. BOB HARPER - Second baseman and coach Harper fielded the position flawlessly and hit for 280 as a lead off man. Harper another holler guy who along, with man- ager Rasmussen gave the Navarro a spirited infield. HM WORRELL-Shortstop batted for the lofty average of 475 and was the leading runs batted in man on the team. Sure handed fielder who made the big plays. CARL WALKER-3rd baseman and a good one. Walker hit the ball with consistency for a 417 batting average and gave the team an airtight infield. KEN HAMNER-Catcher who was converted from an in- fielder and did a real fine job behind the plate. Possessor of a whiplike arm and very fast for a receiver. Hit for a steady 350 average, with the ability to hit the long ball. RON ENGER-Pitcher-outfielder who made a fine second pitcher and hit for a lofty 412 in 9 games. Hit his way into a starter's role with big bat. The remainder of the Navarro outfield included lohn Hammons, Bob Brady, Bob Straub, George Stewart and lohnny lackson. Stewart was a newcomer who was out- field coach and a pinchrunner. For the limited time that the team had to practice it performed as a real good club. Highlight of the season was the team beating the SAN IOAQUIN COUNTY after a loss. The LST had won 22 out of 24 prior to the Navarro knocking them off ll to 7 in a return contest. The team also knocked off the TALLADEGA twice in Guam by the scores 13 to 9 and 7 to 4. The NAVARRUS boxing team won an impressive string of victor- ies during its recent season. Solo- mon lohnson from Richmond, Vir- ginia, won the SouthWest Pacific AAU Light I-leavyweight Champion- ship, Eleventh Naval District Mid- dleweight Championship and the Pacific Coast Championship. loe Esguibel from Raton, New Mexico participated in the Par East- ern All Navy district championship at Yolcosuka in March. Not con- fronted by any challengers he was automatically given the bantam- weight trophy. David Martinez from Yountville, California also participated in the Yolcosulca matches.
