CAPTAIN DAVIS E. BUNTING COMIVIANDING OFFICER MEMORANDUM From: Commanding Officer To: All Hands I This Cruise Book highlights the pleasurable o t' f p r ion o our six month Mediterranean cruise. It generally omits, how- ever, the long hours of invividual work involved in any deployment. 2 Even tthough we had relatively little timeto prepare for our extended cruise, TELEAIR acquitted herself admirably O . . . ur professional competence is documented by the rare achievement of garnering four of the five De artmental 'E' P awards. While I naturally look with pride onthese honors, I am more proud of the practical reputation the ship attained with Commodore E. G. MILLER. COMPHIBRON TEN, as lead ship in matters of seamanship, tactical maneuvering, engineering, reliability, communications and administration. . 3 Additionally, you proved yourselves gentlemen as well as sailors. TELEAIR sailors and marines achieved the lowest incident rate per number of liberties of the five deployed ships. - 4 It goes without saying that the record you have compiled must be attributed to the crew as a whole. The sucess has been too widespread for any individual credit. 5 ,WELL DONE!! D.E. BUNTING
