U. S. S. PICTOR IAF-541
cfo FLEET POST OFFICE
SAN FRANCISCO. CALIFORNIA
This Cruise Book is dedicated to the officers and men of U.S.S. PICTOR who made the June-November
1967 deployment to the Western Pacific and served in the U.S. Seventh Fleet, the "Ready and Flexible Re-
sponse Power for Peace" Fleet. '
The purpose and the mission for which this fine ship was built and-employed bespeaks of outstanding
achievements in the Combat Zone. During this deployment PICTOR broke every single record in the annals
of her history by replenishing more ships of the fleet and transferring more tonnage than had ever before
been achieved. While attaining these new heights, the men of PICTOR had the additional satisfaction of knowing
that new records of service in terms of satisfied Hcustomersn had been attained in carrying out the mission
of Service to the Fleet through Mobile Support. It is a small tribute to say "Well Done" to the crew of
U.S.S. PICTOR from the Commanding Officer. However, the exemplary and efficient manner in which all re-
plenishment evolutions and operations were carried out in the forward area during this deployment earned
for U.S.S.'PICTOR and her crew the reputation of "Finest AF in the Pacific Fleet." The many messages and
letters praising the ship and her crew have created a well deserved image that will be carried forth by the
ship and her crew until the day that higher authority feels that this "fine lady" needs a rest.
Each and every one of you and your families can be justly proud of having served our beloved country and
the U.S. Navy in the honorable and dedicated manner which has been a tradition in our Navy since its founding.
Let no one say that the roles you played in the enormous and vital tasks in today's Combat Area were any
less than those of the soldier on the battle field, or the pilot in his airplane heading for an enemy target
loaded with lethal weapons. For without the Service Ship Navy, of which we have been a part, there could be no
successful prosecution of our nation's commitments in the fight for freedom in the world. We are all part of
the finest and most inter-dependent military team in history and each man's role is equally essential.
To the families and loved ones who have made so many sacrifices and have been so understanding goes a
lion's share of the credit. Without their moral support, their patience and understanding, their frequent letters,
and, most of all, their love, the task at hand would have been most difficult. . A
Excellence was pursued and excellence was achieved through the combined efforts and hard work of the
entire crew working together as a team. Because of this teamwork we can truly say - MISSION ACCOM-
PLISHED! May continued success prevail for PICTOR and her crew in whatever endeavor is undertaken in the
Captain, U.S. Navy
