this time she is used to being the workhorse. Perhaps she doesn't mind

Twenty five years are written on her from stem to stern. Rust spots

too small to exclude from the back page. In World War Two
they threw them together, mass produced them, to fight

First in war, first in peace, and very often last on liberty, they paint,
they swab, they chip, they swab, they clean sides, they swab, they keep
the ship shipshape -and they swab some more. 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.
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,

A more difficult environment couldn't be thought of if it
didn't exist. 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

The earth is not moved by steam propulsion, but in the world of a
ship, it is the only thing. 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
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

If you have a complaint, come to Supply. 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

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
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 wonderful world of CIC is the home of most
of the members of OI Division. 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
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
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.
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.

Yankee Station is a different world-a different way of doing
things-a different war. 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.
