Since 1 944.
TICO DEROGA is there
When history is made.
c Your ship was 28 years old on 8 May 1972. Throughout those years,
TICONDEROGA has done much to maintain America's freedom. Our
technology made her a reality, but what it took for TICONDEROGA
to do her job was not technology, it was you, theman in the engine room
who controlled. and maintained the boilers under almost unbearable
working conditionsg it was the man who worked five hours in the hot
sun aloft repairing a navigational aid, it was the man on ,the flight deck
doing his part amidst constant danger. ,c i I ' '
' . As long as men come forth for their country to serve unselfishly. as you
have, this great nation shall endure. T r
TICONDEROGNS men have served magnificently in the past. One
hundred and forty-one gave their lives in the battle of the Philippine Sea
during World War II in order that America might survive. They have
earned TICO five Battle Stars, the Navy Uccupational Medal, and the
Philippine Republic Presidential Unit Badge.
Vietnam! TICONDEROGA'S crew again was called forth for the
cause of freedom. During five at-sea periods on the line in six months,
the men of TICGNDEROGA didnot let her miss one day of scheduled
operations in order that another country might survive. For their
supreme efforts in this long war, TICONDEROGNS men earned her
two Navy Unit Citations and the Meritorious Unit Citation. ,
TICO and her crew were chosen as participants in yet another great'
mission-that of the Prime Recovery' Ship for Apollo 16. Through
recovering three astronauts and their spacecraftg you, the team that
insures America's freedom, have proudly and successfully projected her
into another chapter of man's greatest venture---the exploration of outer
space. The contribution of TICONDEROGA and each member of her
crew to this mission in the cause of freedom for all mankind is in keeping
with her historic role "Guardian of Freedom". i A -
This book tells of your
chapter in her proud history.
