The Yeoman, Personnelmen, and Postal Clerks of X Division proved to be one ot my
most valuable assets during my recent deployment to the Mediterranean. These are the men
who share the heaviest responsibilities in keeping the morale high. Working on a person
to person basis with each member at the crew to see to it that he receives the intormation
that he needs to be able to go on leave, request his next assignment or school, order his
exams to be advanced, Or receive that most important letter from home are all priority for
the men ot X Division.
From the day they report on board for receipt to the day they are transferred, sepa-
rated, or retired, my men go to X Division for their personal needs. ldentiiication cards,
leave papers, reenlistments, or perhaps a personal letter the Commanding Dtticerwants
typed - these are the things my people want done quickly and efficiently. Most at the time
"X" Division has advance notice, but it you have an emergency, day or night, they can
have you on your way in less than thirty minutes.
Each day these men start the morning att by insuring that all my crew is accounted
tor andeoch night they type, print, and distribute my daily newspaper, the l3.D.D., so that
the next day's business will be known to all and will be conducted on an orderly basis.
The men who work more in the background to give you flawless service are my postal
clerks. While the rest ot my crew are enioying some Foreign port on liberty, the mailmen
are getting my men letters from home. They are otten awake all night waiting tor or sorting
mail. Their greatest sacrifice occurred when they spent the ship's entire tive day visit
in Cannes, France without any liberty ot their own! . . . so that the rest at my crew could
enioy daily mail service.
