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 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
lf- .la .
V,,f 1, '
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
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
A MESSAGE FROM TI-IE CAPTAIN
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.
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.

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."

be clean by Zero Eight Thirty."

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.

These HGENTLEMEN OF THE DECKS," as they are correctly called, perform a wide variety of sea-
manlike functions aboard ship. 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'

Our division is composed of two ratings, Boiler Tenders and Machinist Mates. The main purpose of
the BT's is to try and cover the decks with soot and make as much black smoke as possible. MM's job is
to steal as much paint and paint brushes from the deck force as possible.
We are called by such names as 4'snipes," 'cblack gang," and 'cbildge rats." But in all seriousness,
we have the responsibility of all ship's power. BT's operate the boilers which provide 600 pounds of
steam for ship's propulsion and various purposes such as heating, galley, laundry, etc. They also take
care of all fuel oil.
MM,s maintain the ship,s main engines, ship's generators and ballast pumps. They also operate the
ship's evaporators which supply all of our drinking and feed water for the boilers.
Our work is hard and the workin
us is proud when we say, "This is HMI, DIVISION."

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.

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.

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

TI-IOIVIASTON Athletics reached an all-time high this cruise as our teams compiled more athletic points than any other
ship in Phibron One to win the annual athletic award. 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.

The infield, composed of Ens C. E. Kunde, Ens W. R. Mason, Ens K. Wallace, H. C. Curry, RM3, and W. A. Jenkins,
SN, played tight, almost errorless ball for both games. The hard-hitting outfield included L. D. lVIcW'hirter, GMG3,
J. N. 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. Outstanding performances were turned in by H. C. Curry, RM3, LTJG L. J. Geronime, A. J. Pisano,
RM2, H. King, RM3, J. R. Voorhees, SN, Whaley, A. C. lVIlVl3 and Smith, SN.
This mid-ocean uParadise of the Pacific," located 2,000 miles west of
exciting contrasts, scenic beauty and color. We think of Hawaii in terms of Leibedecked Hula Girls native rass
shacks, white sand beaches drenched in moonlight, haunting melodies, gentle trade winds and a place where you
can enjoy all these things if you have the money!
Hawaii is where the East meets the West in Polynesia, as traces of the Orient and other Pacific countries are
to be seen everywhere. But for all of this, Hawaii is up-to-date, progressive and a true center of American democ-
racy. e ave seen American business institutions, schools, churches, cultural centers, transportation facilities
and entertainment as modern as any in the world. We found the Hawaiian people are proud of their American
Citizenship and are ready, willing and alert as all Americans to defend it.

The Philippines has been described as the most luxuriant group of tropical islands in the World. lt has fertile
coastal plains and valleys, rich forests, navigable lakes and rivers, mineral-laden mountains, abundant useful
vegetation-such as bamboo and palm trees, a Wide variety of fruits and vegetables and a Wealth of fish. 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.

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. It will be quite a while'hefore we all can forget the wild taxi rides, the shops and fun of Japan.
