To all hands - This cruise book provides a few pic- torial highlights of your long, interesting and most successful cruise. The keystone to our success throughout the deployment was your ready and willing attitude in performing all our varied tasks. This, by necessity, meant long hours and hard work, but you were always well ahead of any situation, never on the "backside of the power curve." TELFAlR's remarkable readiness has been a direct result of your individual initiative, motivation and complete co- operation, not only inter-departmental co- operation, but the equally important cooperation between Navy and Marine per- sonnel. l am gratified and proud of our NavyfMarine relationship. lt not only served to effectively shorten time away from home and loved ones by creating a Lloyd William Moffit CAPTAIN USN pleasant atmosphere, but brought laurels to TELFAIR from almost every ship or command with whom we associated fe.g., TELFAIR set the Sixth Fleet replenish- ment record with ALSTEDE, which l am sure will remain on the books for a long time to comel. The world knows your capability by the "E" patches on your arms and the hashmarked "E's" and "C" painted on the ship. You thoroughly deserve eve? honor and recognition you have receive . You have made this a taut and proud ship and have proven yourselves completely worthy of the Nation's trust. l will never be prouder being a part of or associated with any group oflofficers and men than I am with-you and TELFAIR's outstanding share of BLT 3f8. Well-Done! 4.3.

M. HISTORY OF THE USS TELFAIR TAPA-210, The keel of the USS TELFAIR CAPA-2lOl was laid in the Richmond Ship- yard No. 2 of the Permanente Metals Corporation, Richmond, California, on May 30, I944. The 537th vessel to slide down the ways of the Richmond Shipyard, the TELFAIR was launched on August 30th, l944. The ship was sponsored and christened by Mrs. J.D. Cauthorn, wife of the President of the San Francisco News, and was named in honor of Telfair County, Georgia. An attack transport ship's mission is to load assigned combat troops and their equipment, transport them and unload in landing craft on enemy beaches in ac- cordance with established doctrine and the tactical plan of the Landing Force Commander, to evacuate casualties and prisoners of war, and to furnish medical aid. After a period of activity in the Pacific waters, by directive dated January l947 the USS TELFAIR CAPA-2lOl was placed out of commission, in reserve, attached to the U.S. Pacific Reserve Fleet. TELFAIR was reactivated for the Korean emergency under the command of Captain J. Andrews and reported for duty with Pacific Fleet Amphibious Force on September l2, l95O. She served in Japan and Korea, transporting troops to Japan, and returned to San Francisco with more than l6OO troops in July l95l. During World War ll and the Korean Conflict TELFAIR won the followingawards and ribbons: The Asiatic-Pacific Ribbon with one star, World War ll Victory Ribbon, Naval Occupation Ribbon, China Service Ribbon, Philippine Liberation Ribbon, American Campaign Ribbon, National Defense Ribbon, Korean Service Ribbon with three stars, United Nations Ribbon, and the Korean Presidential Unit Citation. ln l954 the TELFAIR participated in OPERATION PASSAGE TO FREEDOM, in which she transported Vietnamese refugees from the Haiphong area in northern Indo-China to the southern area, now known as South Vietnam. The TELFAIR, as a member of Task Force 90, received nu- merous messages of commendation for the iob "well done" during this operation. TELFAIR operated until 28 February i958 when she was decommissioned again. On l July l96O she was turned over to the Maritime Administration and reaquired by the Navy on 24 August l96l . On 22 November l96l she was re- commissioned and ordered to report to the Atlantic Fleet upon completion of underway training at San Diego, California. Since reporting to the Atlantic Fleet the TELFAIR has completed four Mediterranean Cruises, one Carribbean deployment, and also took part in Operation Steel Pike l, the largest amphibious as- sault exercise since World War ll. 5
