USS STICKELL DD-888
- is named for the late Lieutenant .Iohn Stickell, U.S. Naval Reserve.
Lietg2ia?1'fIg?cl?cgil ieliigagiiwthe Naval Service after a tour in the Royal Canadian Air Force. He
served with the 108th Bombing Squadron in t.he Pacific and was awarded the Navy Cross, Dis-
' ' ' ir Medal for his action,
tmgflflfeleltklafxfylgfolsfsdviagnaiwfarded for his gallant actions against the 'enemy during action over
the Marshall Islands in 2943. Seriously wounded and in great pain, he .risked his own life to save
his crew. Lieutenant Stickell's expert airmanship and tenacious devotion to duty were in keeping
with the highest traditions of the Naval Service. . g
USS STICKELL was built by the Consolidated Steel Company in Orange, Texas during 1945
and was commissioned in October of that year. She joined the Atlantic lfleet for a short period
and then proceeded to the Pacific Fleet in early 1946. From 1946 1.0 1950, she Pefflelpaled In
three Far East Tours as part of the occupation forces. After the outbreak of the Korean War, the
ship received five engagement stars for action against Communist aggression. 1
On December 31, 1952, STICKELL was decommissioned for the purpose of becoming a radar
picket destroyer. Nine months later, on September 1, 1953 she was recommissioned a "DDR .
During the ten years that followed, STlCKELL's assignments were VUOSUY In the meld of
Anti-Air Warfare in the Atlantic and through several Med cruises. STICKELI, was 21 leader IH the
anti-air warfare field and was awarded the DESLANT Anti-Air Wilffliff? TFOPIIY in 1951- l
Having served well as a DDR, STICKELL entered the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard in Ma.V
1963 for a nine month FRAM Mark I conversion, where she traded her anti-air specialties forthe
latest ASW equipment including ASROC and DASH. She rejoined the fleet in early 1964 SS H
strai ht DD. .
Since 1964, STICKELL has sailed in nearly all corners of .the world and has participated in
many types of operations including Med Cruises, ASW Exercises, Gemini Space shots, Midshipmen
Training Cruises to Northern Europe, Dominican Republic emergency, Tonkin Gulf, South China
Sea, and an around the world cruise in 1966.
After her last Med Cruise ending in March 1970, it appeared that STICKELL was a strong
candidate for retirement after some twenty five years of service to the nation. Her remaining days
of commissioned service seemed certain to be short when, the official word was received that
STICKELL had been placed in a Modified Cadre status. Life started to slowly drain from the
ship as the number of personnel on board started to decrease with no replacements ordered in.
Activity in the engineering spaces slowed down. Fewer and fewer repairs were being completed
due to lack of funds, lack of experienced personnel and lack of incentive that is always Pfesem
in a ship that is about to be de-commissioned.
However, in September 1970, this all changed when the official word was received that
STICKELL must fulfill at least one more major assignment, a six months cruise back iIll0 the
Indian Ocean and Red Sea.
She Wes Scheduled to dePl0Y in January 1971 and return to Norfolk in .luly. lt had been nearly
four years since a shipyard overhaul, and none was scheduled prior to deployment. ln addition,
funds were limited for making the necessary repairs for the cruise.
llowever, on 7 January 1971, after months of a backbreaking effort hy her crew, t.o repaff the
6'H8'lf16'6I'1Hg Plant, STICKELL departed Norfolk, on schedule, for a 35,740 mile voyage that ended
in Norfolk on 29 June 1971.
This - - is the story of that voyage.

The men of the DECK Division, man the Bridge, paint the hull and
keep the ship's topside spaces clean. They never give up in their never
ending battle to stay one step ahead of the rust. On many occasions, the
men of the DECK force were required to work, long after "Liberty CaI1"
However, as STICKELL steamed back toward Norfolk, a clean and
smart looking ship, the men of the Deck Force were proud that their
efforts had not been in vain.

Constant training in Naval Gunfire Support, Anti-Submarine Warfare,
Anti-Air Warfare and navigation is a must to maintain the Navy's high
standard in their CIC personnel. Training for combat teams takes place
both at sea and at Navy Schools at naval installations. Shore based
schools prepare the Radarman with as much actuality as possible but
the most complete training takes place at sea where the Radarman puts
to use all previous knowledge obtained in schools.
Since the services of the Radarmen are in such demand at sea, they
must sometimes stand a minimum of twelve hours on watch each day.
The Radarman doesn't get extra pay for the long hours at sea but ample
liberty in port makes life a little more enjoyable.

The Boilermen operate the two firerooms, run the "Oil King Shack",
and work in the Refueling Detail. They work long, hard hours under
conditions that sometimes include temperatures over 120 degrees F. Tfheir
work ranges from the back-breaking cleaning of boiler firesides and water-
sides, to the repair and maintenance of the fireroom machinery and boilers.

"lf" stands for repair, a one-word description of R Division's primary
function, which is to insure that a vast array of motors, engines, com
pressors, and hull fixtures and fittings work properly at all times. To
accomplish this task, the division employs a wider variety of ratings
than any other division. Within the fold are Damage Controlmen, Engine
mon, lalectricianmates, Shipfitters, Machinist's Mates, Interior Com
rnunication Electricians, and Machine Repairmen.
During normal underway steaming, R Division personnel stand watches
in the engineroorns, firerooms, and as the roving sounding security
patrol. When General Quarters is passed, additional R Division men
man-up stations in the three repair lockers, at the emergency diesel
generators, and in after steering. For all sea details, stations are manned
as during GQ with the exception of the repair lockers. Ample numbers
of R-men are used topside to expedite the work of the sea detail, Whether
it be to handle stores of ammunition and fuel oil, or take Admirals aboard
