Only a few people were on hand on the end of Pier 07 at Norfolk Naval Base to bid the NEOSHO a farewell. The few family members that did had misty eyes, as the tug-boats drug us away from our home-land. ' The first signs of cold weather was evident that day with chilly drizzle and rain falling from the windy, gray sky. Could the weather have been an omen to what the upcoming cruise would be? To some it would be a gloomy 199 days like the initial day was - while others believed it was an interesting experiencef GCQDB E O4 OCTOBER 1976 From: USS NEOSHO Mediterranean Cruise Book Staff To: Distribution List CAll readersb Subj: The '76 - '77 USS NEOSHO MED CRUISE BOOK Encl: CD Pictures, words, and description of events 1.

A river with its origin in East Central Kansas was named NEOSHO by the Indians inhabiting that region. The NEOSHO River is 460 miles long, flowing southeast into Oklahoma oil country, where it is generally known as the Grand River. Our ship is the fourth naval vessel to bear the name., Her original ancestor was an ironclad of the famous HMonitorH class, built in l863. Early in this century a precedent was established that fleet oilers would be named after our nation's rivers which bear Indian names. As the result of a major shipbuilding effort during the l930's, the second NEOSHO CAO 23D was commissioned just before the commencement of World War l Surviving the attack at Pearl Harbor, she sailed with the Pacific Fleet to stem the enemy advance. After participating in many battles, AO 23 was sunk in May 1942 after an attack by more than twenty Japanese bombers and one suicide plane during the battle of the Coral Sea. The name was transferred to a later ship of the same class, AO 43, which in her turn served with distinction during the remainder of the war in the Pacific. She was transferred to the maritime fleet at the end of hostilities. Our ship is the first of a class of large cargo capacity, high speed oilers designed to support the modern HSupercarriersH. She was launched in November l953 at the Quincy, Massachusetts yard of Bethlehem Steel Company and placed in commission in September of the following year. NEOSHO is assigned to Service Squadron FOUR and is homeported in Norfolk, Virginia. In addition to numerous Mediterranean Deployments, NEOSHO in recent years has answered the call in the Suez Crisis of l956, the Cuban Quarantine in 1962, the Dominican Republic Conflict in 1965, the Task Force 200, the Bicentennial naval operation in l976. Her travels have encompassed four continents and have taken her across the equator and Arctic Circle to exotic ports of call. A0143 " : 4 1 s 5 f 1 I I H AE il P . L X i 'x , .

MS3 MURPHY gladly displays the tradition above LOVELY GIRL There were dreams, there were plans To make this lovely girl All could see, she was indeed, Large enough to take the world In fifty two they laid her down The men were soaked with sweat After many hours, long and hard But she wasn't finished yet What will it take? was the cry, The men were standing in line I don't know but she'll endure Your shift is over it s time for mine She's taking all the hands turn out, To give her what she was needing At day s end, and a n1ght's rest She'll be ready for more beading She's a beaut, there s no doubt Although she s kind of paunched After much sweat of many men, Now she's ready to be launched In fifty three with cosmetic kit They painted her outer skin She was huge, but very lovely She was loved by her men She sat tall in her skids They painted numbers one four three That lovely girl she'll sail the world Then slid into the briney sea There s much work for sometime yet, It would be at least another year Many long hours, they would work, As she sat alongside the pier. The day come, it was fifty-four, She was then placed in commission. Orders were given, the watch was set, At her Commanding Officer's permission. Like a babe, taking firstisteps, She went on her trial runs: She performed, like a champ, Even with her five inch guns. It's been long, since her birth, She's sailed thousands of miles. Taking her men, where she goes, Always wearing a proud smile. She's growing old, with miles left yet, She's the fourth to bear her name. It's NEOSHO, AO one four three,' She has put them all to shame. W. R. BONE 5 is 1 P M50 HU , 6 Z fn 03020 X CAPT CHARLES G. TATE Commanding OMLQQJL W Q01 - I F LT. q.J- MCTIGUE LTjg T.W. BAILEY LT.

Whether it be re- questing permission to grow a beard or re-enlisting for six years, they all have to work their way through the Chain of Command. This method keeps all concerned people informed, and many times the problem Cor otherwiseD can be solved at the lowest possible level. Most of the time, the basic everyday request chit will be approved or disapproved by the Executive Officer. It can be said that information going up and down the Chain of Command is very similar to climb ing a ladder . . . it's a lot harder climbing up the ladder than it is coming down! 1 Y I I 1 ' 'K 55- ft??2FfP'S'1?fifC1 Y'1vfi2vSfi:1'lzifmff-'iii--x, Qlnmmzmhing Qbffirer COMMANDING OFFICER Captain Charles Gordon TATE, United States Navy, received his commission on 4 February 1952.

The main propulsion boilers can be con- sidered the heart of the ship, for with- out the steam to push her through the deep blue and to deliver fuel whenever and wherever called upon, the ship would not fulfill her mission. These two 600 psi boilers supply steam to Neosho's main propulsion plant, deck machinery, and various auxiliary purposes throughout the ship. During this deployment, it is significant that at least one of these boilers has been on the line almost constantly. Through lots of hard work, long hours, and atten tiveness to watchstanding duties, HBH Division has enabled Neosho to fulfill her vital mission as a fleet oiler. HBH Division's fuel and water kings are also responsible for supplying the ship's fresh water requirements and en- suring the fresh water received in for- eign ports is treated to make it safe for use onboard ship. HBH Division plays a very vital role as part of the team required to man a ship and make it ready for sea. ?W.'l ". lf' Boiler Technician CBD -w QM ' mga 247 - V WW Q 'Q Wa ZW?

Examples of such work include weld- ing pipe-work, including sanitary systems, liberty boats and all phases of D.C. work- The biggest and most important job for HRH Division is the ship's cargo of fuel oils for the fleet and the cargo system of valves and piping. The division is respon- sible for lining up the system for the receipt and discharge of carfo. The ship carries approx. 8,000,000 gallons of cargo, this amounts to quite a job. When refuel- ing, HRH division consists of many long hours of twisting open and closing the many valves in the system, and watching the 24 tanks during fuel lifts, to ensure that the tanks are not overfilled. The division must also run tests on the fuel as it is loaded to ensure that the products meet the required specifications. The men of HRH division are called upon to sacrifice many hours of liberty time in order to load the fuel during lifts. Although the thought sometimes gets out of mind as the fuel lifts proceed through the night, the work is a vital part of the NEOSHO's primary mission of providing service to the fleet.

THOMPSON OC DIVI SION OFFICER' OPERATIO S DEPARTME T The Operations Department is responsible for gathering and correlating various kinds of information pertinent to the accomplishment of NEOSHO's mission. The Ops Department is concerned not only with the interior operation of the ship but to some extent it acts as a kind of liasion with other ships, task groups, the shore establishment and our superiors. One large element of the Operations Department's task is communica- tions, for it is important to know what our superiors and other commands are planning and doing. There are four rates represented in the Operations Department aboard NEOSHO. These are Radiomen tRM'sl and Signalmen fSM'sJ who are grouped together into the OC Division, and Operations Specialists fOS'sJ and Electronics Technicians CET'sJ who comprise the OI Division. The OC QOperations-Communicationsl Division are the ship's primary communicators. The Radiomen are responsible for long-range communications while the Signalmen specialize in relatively short-range communications. RM's have at their disposal various means of setting up radio circuits which enable them to transmit and receive messages of concern and interest to NEOSHO. Radio teletype is the primary means of handling narrative and administrative messagesg voice circuits provide handy channels for operational traffic. In addition, Morse coded radio telegraphy provides a reliable backup to the more rapid methods. Signalmen can communicate over short distances and are limited to line of sight. Their skills come to the fore during such evolutions as Unreps, wherein they can rapidly coordinate movements and maneuvers with the receiver ships. During daylight hours the SM's use flag hoists and semaphore to communicateg at night they use lights flashing in Morse code groups to spell out their messages. The OI QOperations-Intelligencel Division has a twofold mission which is split up between its two composite rates. The Operations Specialists stand radar watches underway to locate and in some cases identify distant ships before these ships are sighted visually. The radars also indicate hazards to navigation. During certain evolutions, such as sea detail, OS's plot fixes and provide the bridge with maneuvering information. Additionally, OS's man tactical voice radio circuits for commun- ications with Ships NEOSHO is operating with. The Electronics Technicians make up the other half of OI, and it is their responsibility to keep the radios and radars working. Besides normal and emergency repairs, the ET's also PeIif0I'rr1 maintenance on the complex electronic equipment Whlfll are the Operations Department's primary tools in fulfilling its mission of keeping NEOSHO informed of, and ready to meet her commitments.
