X f CRUISE TO WESTPAC - . ,,,. . M... - ,,,, .. ,... ' "W U.S.S. THOMASTCN LSD-28 The USS THOMASTON is the first of the NAVY'S newest class of Landing Ships, Dock. ln keeping with the tradition of naming LSD's after famous places, the THONIASTON was named for Thomaston, Maine, possibly best known as the home of Major General Henry Knox. General Knox was the Chief of Artillery during the entire Revolutionary War and accepted the surrender of Lord General Cornwallis at Yorktown. Later he served as the nation's first civilian head of the Navy. The ship was authorized by the Secretary of Navy on 28 February 1952 and built by the Ingalls Ship- building Corporation at Pascagoula, Mississippi. The keel was laid on 3 March 1953 and the ship was launched on 9 February 1954. After commissioning, the THOMASTON partici- pated in amphibious and underway training in Guan- tanamo Bay, Cuba, and then proceeded to join the Pacific Fleet Amphibious Force. The THOMASTON was one of the many ships participating in the Arctic Resupply Project of the DEW Line July through Oc- tober 1955. Later she returned to the Arctic to take A lf- .la . V,,f 1, ' , T'!fZ,1,y Q., 'I part in the Cold Weather Landing Exercise during January and February 1956. The Tl'lOMASTON,S first deployment to WestPac with the 7th Fleet was in August 1957. She returned again in April of 1959, when she participated in sev- eral large scale amphibious exercises in the Borneo and Korean areas. Returning to San Diego on the 19th of November 1959, the THOMASTON enjoyed the holidays at home prior to a busy spring of exercises and inspec- tions before her third deployment to WestPac in J une of 1960. The TOMCAT arrived home in San Diego Decem- ber 22nd 1960. Several weeks later found her in the yards in San Francisco for a long awaited overhaul. She then was worked to death in refresher and am- phibious training, plus several operations. This brings her up to date, as once again we find ourselves in the ullealm of the Golden Dragon." The story of this cruise will be found on the following pages, so good reading as once again we go to sea on the THOMASTON. . .a,,, W1 A MESSAGE FROM TI-IE CAPTAIN i 1 1 i , I, ..... ., CAPT. BLAKE S. FORREST, U.S. NAVY, COMIVIANDING As our cruise comes to an end, I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for the fine spirit, cooperation and high degree of professional competence which you have displayed in WestPac serving with the 7th Fleet. We have had our hardships and our glories, as well as much time spent in play. I hope this book will not only remind you of these feelings and events, but the fact that you have played a vital role in our nation's defense and the world's fight for freedom, The THOM- ASTON has represented itself in an excellent manner both ashore and at sea, and I am proud to be your shipmate. i CDR. ALTON P. ADAMS, U.S.N., EXECUTIVE OFFICER This has been a very successful cruise for the THOMASTON. It has been successful because every man did his job with that fine competitive spirit which is so vital to a fighting ship. As a result, the THOMASTON stands high in the competition ,forthe Squadron HE" for this year. Personal develop- ment has not been neglected. During this cruise 17 high school level and one college level GED certificates have been delivered to members of the crew. Good conduct medals have been awarded to 23 members of the crew and 61 men passed the February exams for advancement. There has been a minimum of personal problems involving dependents during this cruise, and for this every Thomaston wife deserves a hearty '6Well Done"g their job has not been easy I know. I am proud to have been your executive officer during this cruise.

Waggoner -The first division in numbers is small, twenty seven in fact, counting the short' and the tall. i A Our work is back breaking, the hours are long, when liberty goes down, we're still goin' strong. F When we do go ashore, comes a voice quite meek, said the soft spoken Bos'n, "you had liberty last week." The foc'sle needs polishing, the well-deck is dirty, the Bos'n mate said, uit'll be clean by Zero Eight Thirty." So way past dark we Seamen have toiled, we should hit the rack, our liberty is spoiled. When reveillegoes, we hear a loud din, 'cget out of those racks, you had all night inf, Comes Monday morning and we're heading for sea, and these endless tasks we fulfill with great glee. The old saying goes, uSailors are happy when gripingf' they go about moaning while the paint-work they're wiping. When the technicians have secured and gone to their hunks, on the foc'sle we're watching, looking for junks. Most sailors work from sun to sun but a deck-ape's work is never done. When the day of reckoning comes to the test, we will all stand and shout, 'cwe are the best." We havenit had much liberty, so our hearts are quite lonely, but when we get to Yoko we'll have the okani. As this voyage is nearing an end, we'll still hold the Navy's tradition, for real American Blue Jackets are found in the ship's First Division. 1 T1 Our Captaln Turn To .....4,44...- ....,.,,.

They are responsible for just about all the equipment and operations of the after end of the ship. More specifically, they have the maintenance responsibilities of the cranes, boat davits, boat booms, flight deck, welldeck, sterngate and wingwalls. Add to these jobs the duties they per- form during ballasting and flight operations, and you have one busy division. The working men are kept busy by a breed of men called a 4'Boatswain Mate." He may be identified by a bent index finger on his right hand and a voice that would make a drill sergeant blush. His vocabulary is somewhat limited to such phrases as, "turn to," Hwhat liberty card," wget a clean sweep down" and 'cwhat do you mean by Holiday Routinef' 2nd -iurmqg - .. .LL-..: 1 -ff, 1. .l',i..f,LZ I- LL li K' N- "" 37 -" ' 'ig' V ',,"",',- I I p'-nv .'::.z-A:A7.:v:-E ,, A DIVISIQN BM's The Boot THERE. wsu- BE N0 H0Lo0f-XY Qonffwf 'il'-N Heads Up on the Pler C?

These are hi hl te h ' l k'll g y c n1ca s 1 s requiring many hours of study and field work, particularly if the field is Olongapo. In fact, they are so devoted to their work that it is only after unrelenting persuasion that they will agree to "go over." ' The Third Division, in all honesty, works together as a unified team, best exemplified by the speed and accuracy with which they are able to deliver fire during gunnery evolutionsg and, by so doing, pro- vide a vital function in the overall battle readiness of the ship. 3rd DIVISION GM's I "",Q What Are You Looking at Cheesecake Thunklns Dude Th1S Is My Gun I Who's Cold Hey Bud-dy Want Buy Machine-Gun Todd at Work? . - .

QM3 ? 9 l V This department is the smallest department aboard the THOMASTON but by far the least unnoticed. l The Navigation Dept. is made up of five enlisted men and one commissioned officer. Their primary duty l is the safe navigation of the ship to any known point of the globe under any existing condition. This is done with an outstanding degree of accuracy. The men of the navigation department, besides from 'being navigators, are also visual communication experts. We of the THOMASTON are very proud of our Navi- cl gation Department, for it is within the highest standards of naval tradition.

RM3 This division is composed of the ship's communicators, the Radiomen and the Signalmen. They may be found in Radio Central and on the Open Bridge, distinguishable from other sailors by their use of a language all their own, composed of little 'abeep-beeps" and strange arm motions. The Radiomen are concerned mainly with the transmitting, receiving, and routing of the ship's radio and teletype messages. They stand many long, tedious hours of watch and it is with only the greatest amount of persuasion will they leave the ship at liberty call. The Signalmen are known mainly for the efficient way in which they can distract the J OOD's, yet bail the OOD's out of trouble with their signal translations. They're a hardy bunch of sailors who stay out in the weather, rain or shine, and a real credit to the ship.

These activities vary from tactical maneuvering. recom- mendations to tracking of contacts to the control of our amphibious landings. The men behind-the-scenes are the uET's," for it is their responsibility to maintain and repair the complicated electronic equipment utilized in CIC and Radio Central.

A Of all the departments on the ship, that which is most noted for inefficiency and good disorganization is the Supply Department. The department is made up of five different ratings: Storekeepers fSK'sj, Ship's Servicemen fSH'sj, Stewards fSD'sj, Disbursing Clerks fDK'sj, and Cooks CS'sj. No, they don't honor Diners Club Cards. The SK's maintain the eight storerooms and G.S.K., Whose motto is 'cThe customer is always right, at least TOW of the time." They also operate the supply office, having responsibility for divisional bud- gets, invoices and general stores accounting. The SH's operate the service facilities - ship's store, soda fountain QGEDUNKH, finest hand laundry, cobfoler and tailor shop. Naturally, only the finest imported products are used. The CS,s, that means Cooks, prepare and serve the food for the crew, maintain the messdecks, and have the responsibility for all equipment and storerooms. Their's is a thankless job. The SD's operate the Wardroom Mess, prepare and serve the meals, and maintain the officer's state- rooms and the Captainls Cabin. The single DK handles the Disbursing Office under the paymaster, LTJG Turner. All of these ratings, working together, keep the .ship well supplied, fed, and clothed, which all adds toa high standard of morale. I I!

Our basketball, bowling and softball teams all contributed many vital points to give the Thomaston the long-awaited award. The Tomcats, our softball team, overcame many handicaps to capture the Phibron One Championship in the tour- nament held in San Diego two days before our departure to WestPac. This victory was a result of much hard work, patience and teamwork by many people, many of whom have long since left the ship. This effort was climaxed by the final two games of thestournament in which we beat the USS Lenawee QAPA 1955 twice in two action-packed thrillers. J. E. Parker, SN, pitched I4 innings to highlight the individual performances.

Denbleyker, BT3, and G. H. Jennings, RM3. The Tomcats continued their winning ways in WestPac, winning 34 games while losing only 8. We picked up several new players: Ens L. E. Grebe, LTJG C. W. Sporre, Angona, RMSN, and an old veteran, Schlacter, SH3. As We head homeward, the Tomcats are already preparing for their onslaught of San Diego pitching. Theirs is a record to be proud of and one which they've determined to better. Our basketball team played a smaller schedule than the softball team, but was highly effective considering the amount of time available for practice and the scheduling of games. They won 3 and lost 2, but this record is no indica- tion of the talent and spirit that this team had. Our hoopsters were coached by LT R. D. Day and player-coach Ens W. R. Mason.

Witho a climate that is basically maritime and tropical, the islands have high relative humidity, abundant rainfall, con- tinuous heat and gentle Winds. The Filipinos have been our allies since the turn of the century and are determined to fight against communist aggression. The young republic, established in 1946, is the only predominantly Christian democracy in the Asian World. Americans and Filipinos alike are proud of this country and its progress. 3 i H -e 1 :1..1:--.1 ., , .-Lf'-'f e-.'- 11 ,- H nw , x ., .,,.,,,-f .f :-:vm ..-mfm.rm1m.1:.m,-n-i'-- -'uv' """ F ?g'A1y,x.:'. .inn .'-- -1' JAPAN W. 5 l Nearly every sailor who has been to Japan wants either to stay or return again someday. Perhaps the reason for this is the people themselves, for nowhere in the world are the people more genuinely friendly, courteous and fasci- nating. Their culture is strange to us, but intriguing and inviting, and the country itself is magnificent in its beauty- We saw more and more traces of Western influence .in the lives of the Japanese, hut then again we have adapted some of their ideas, too.
