Perhaps she doesn't mind not getting the attention that the thoroughbreds get. She has been places, come back, and gone again. She knows where she went and what she did. Twenty five years are written on her from stem to stern. Rust spots come and go, but dents remain. Thousands of gallons of paint have worn off her sides only to be replaced by more. Nlore than five thousand men have worked on her, sailed her, fought her. When she does go to rest it will be a deserved one. ' I Mgtllilv M AH.. 2 u.

From anti-submarine warfare to escort duty, from search and rescue to gunfire support, many are the "tin can's" functions. They're not big enough for a headline, but not too small to exclude from the back page. In World War Two they threw them together, mass produced them, to fight hard and to die fast. Reason wouldn't allow them to last long, but many did. STODDARD is one that made it through Now after all these years the bones creak and the muscles strain but she still answers her call Everybody knows she won t last much longer but they knew that in 1944 Newer faster ships are beginning to break the waves The modern Navy sits in all its splendor for the taxpayer to look at Maybe somebody should tap him on the shoulder and bring him over to Five Six Six Look slr that ship has served you well for many years but look quickly she s the Navy s lnca the last ofa dying breed l l l l l l S li ,-.-,fTy7 vi ww- 'f ' W. if 5, ' Gwzvffjir Ai I p.,1:,ffy ,C CDMMANDIN CDR Robert C. CONOLLY Il,son of the late Admiral and Mrs. R.L. Conolly, graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1948. He later attended the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School at Monterey. CDR CONOLLY has served in the USS Henry W. Tucker lDD875l and, during the Korean War, in USS Epperson lDD719l. He has also served as Commanding Officer of the USS Egret lMSC 46l and as Executive Officer of the USS Hawkins lDD873l. During other tours of duty he has served on the staffs of the Commander in Chief, U.S. Naval Forces Eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean, the President of the U.S. Naval War College, and the Commander, Sixth Fleet. During his first deployment in Stoddard, CDR CONOLLY was awarded the Bronze Star with Combat "V" and the Vietnamese Navy Medal of Gallantry. CDR CONOLLY is presently sewing on the staff in Washington. OFFICER CDR James E. LACY, a graduate of the University of Southern California in 1951, took command of Stoddard 5 October 1968. CDR LACY has served in USS Manchester lCL83l during h Korean War and in USS Ammen lDD527l. He commanded I 6 Q USS Dunn County lLST 7421 and was Executive Officer aboard USS Walker lDD517l. ln other tours of duty he has served as an instructor at the NROTC unit at Villanova University, on the staff of the Fourteenth of the Bureau of Naval Personnel.

They're the real salts on the ship,they can not only carry a coffee cup without spilling a drop in 45 degree roll seas but they can do rope tricks that would make Lash LaRue look sick. For pure poetry in motion watch them during an unrep. lt's, say, four o'clock in the morning and heavy seas when STODDARD pulls alongside the oiler. Bolos away! Suddenly the deck is strewn with criss-crossing lines. For a few seconds the scene resembles a Chinese fire drill. Unimaginable curses and threats break the morning stillness and then somehow there is order. STODDARD awaits its life-blood oil. FIRST DIVISIQN lf STODDARD speaks with authority, it is thanks to the untiring efforts of the men of Second Division. Ever since men put to sea, they have been arming their ships. And ever since there have been weapons, there has had to be a man to care for them. The Gunner's Mates and Fire Control Men of today follow in a line that began when the first sword was carried on the first ship. The job is vastly more complicated today, and the modern men of Second Division need much more knowledge than their counterparts of years ago. Radar, computers, electricity, and delicate ma- chinery have become of the weapons systems: The men who run them have become jacks of all trades to maintain them in top shape. Sea and weather take their toll of everything on ships and the gunS D9fhaP5 most of all. Yet when they are needed they are readY, making STODDARD known on the beach or in the air.

Whirled by the wind, warmed and cooled by the sun, stirred by fish and the ship itself, impenetrable to the normal senses, the ocean is a mystery under its surface. The Sonarmen daily pit their skill, knowledge, and equipment against this hostile medium. They search for submarines throughout the day and night, trying to determine, among tens of thousands of sounds and false targets, the one true one. Anit-submarine warfare is yet another task STODDARD is designed for-one she performs well against the obstacles against her. Armed with torpedoes and World War Two vintage depth charges and hedgehogs, she makes up for what she lacks in more modern weaponry with the experience and nerve of her men. ' 21 lt If ll, Q1 Bmw.

Ultimately, all the power that STODDARD uses and brings to bear on the enemy depends on pure water heated into steam. Steam makes the engines go, powers the electrical generators, pumps the water, makes the drinking water. The job of making steam belongs to the Boiler Tenders. lt's sometimes a thankless job, especially when a puff of black smoke sneaks past, or the soot from the tubes lands on deck instead of the water. But there is the compensation of knowing that the ship can survive without it's men to watch the water in the glass, clean the firesides, gently adjust the burners and forced draft blowers. The BT's enjoy their own world apart, a world that is filled with incomprehensible terms to the uninitiated-downcomers, uptakes, periscopes, tubes, firesides and watersides. To those who don't know, it is a world in which pipes seem to run at random from one amazing place to another astounding one. But the real BT sees his plant as a whole, understands the function of each pipe and valve, and sometimes one thinks he'd like a few more, just to make it a little more complicated. 1 Ii Like a centralized fix-it shop R Division con- gregates all the men who repair all the things that could go haywire throughout the ship. lf the plumb- ing doesn't work R Division will help. lf the gyro is acting up, R Division will fix it. If the whale boat won't run, R Division will get it going again. From a hole in the hull to a light that is burnt out, R Division is ready to repair it. The ingenuity and resourcefulness of the tra- ditional Yankee mechanic is the special characteristic of all the men in this division. They can and will try to do the job. And if the job, no matter how large or how small, is humanly possible, they will do it. These are men that can't be stopped and won't take no for an answer. In their hands a piece of wire, some putty, and a screwdriver become more than tools and materials, they will form a plug for a leaking pipe, a secure connection for a telephone jack, even, if necessary, a jumper for a shorted wire. Their job is a large one on a ship nearing the quarter-century mark. The fact that it is still holding together better than its builders expected is due to them and to their predecessors.

Here you can complain about your food, your laundry, your gedunk, a burnt out light bulb-anything that doesn't come under the auspices of the Chaplain. And Supply listens. And Supply grins. And Supply grumbles. And Supply does something about it. It may not be just what you expected, but Supply does something about it. Take the Storekeepers. Some say SK stands for skate, but who gets up in the middle of the night to get the parts needed? Who types out the fortieth priority walk-through of the day? And who always has an open ear lalthough maybe a closed pursel for your problems? Then there are the Commissarymen. They're the ones who are sweating over a hot stove 24 hours a day to fatten everyone up for Mother. The Ship's Servioeman is a pretty good guy too. When on the line clothes are clean even if the showers are secured, and the ship's store can almost always provide the pause that refreshes. One of the most varied divisions of the ship, OC division supplies communications for the STODDARD. The Yeoman and Personnelmen who run the ship's office, the Radiomen who commu- nicate at sea, the Signalmen who hoist the flags and flash the light, all function as the voice of the command. The smartly returned flaghoist, flawless letter, ungarbled messageall mark the well-run ship. Thanks to these people, STODDARD ranks among the best. Another part of OC Division labors mightily to get the ship where she's going and to keep her happy and healthy while underway. The Hospital Corpsmen and the Postal Clerk work hand in glove to keep the ship's morale high. The Ouartermasters, star-gazers extra- ordinary, plot the ship along the way and keep her as close to schedule as humanly possible. Thanks to the efforts of these men, the dangers and loneliness of going to sea are reduced.

The radarmen are the operational specialists of the ship, keeping track of all the myriad details that the ship's operations require. If you want to find when the next unrep will be, what the carrier's going to do, or what movie will be shown on the mess decks, CIC will know. The men who keep Combat in the know are the Electronics Technicians. The cry of "Call an ET" is heard often, and never goes unheeded. Working on the vital radio gear and the irreplaceable radar sets, the ET's manfully strive against the hazards the sea presents to all electronics equipment. The ET's job is a varied and highly technical one, requiring knowl- edge of electronic theory, equipment idiosyncracies, and, sometimes, how to hold it together with a flashlight battery and bent chicken wire.

' -' THE GUN LINE J: ullllllllnullnlllnllllfilusunnnuuunnnunnp Q After an upkeep period in Subic Bay, we plunged into the war. Heading to the gun line, we practiced shore bombardment in the Philippines, then headed for "Eye" Corps, where the Marines were fighting hard. For three long weeks we stood port and starboard watches-six hours on and six hours off. Our reward was our knowledge of a job well done-compliments from our spotters and satisfying gun damage assessments. We shot our bullets and competed with each other. Mount 53, with SN RAUH and SN BEARSHIELD loading, threatened to walk away with the honors for fast loading and faster shooting. They were matched by the end of the period by Mount 51, which "sounded like...a 40 mm mounted on our bow instead of a 5"f38". SN DANICICH and SN DIAZ, working as first and second loaders, pumped out a round every three and a half to four seconds. 23935 i Our operations needed lots of ammunition. Here several handlers work to clear bullets from the forward station. When we left I Corps, the Captain wrote in the Plan of the Day, "Our Marine spotter...was reluctant to part with STODDARD...He called us a 'straight-shooting and hard-hitting ship."Rounds always on target for most damage."' The teamwork among CIC, Plot, Bridge, and gun mounts made the ship one that was used heavily and well. OPPOSITE PAGE-TOP: A gun sight frames SM2 Brown.

The Navy operates three attack carriers and one support carrier on station at all times. With escorts and supply ships, they make up the mightiest fleet in existence. Yankee Station is like living at the end of the runway of one of the world's busiest airports. The jets scream in day and night, the radio is never quiet, and there is scarcely time to draw breath before the next evolution. f.
