This IS the story of a mighty warship the
UNITED STATES SHIP TICONDEROGA She
bears her proud name with honor and distinction
TICONDEROGA the name shines brightly in
the history of our nation Long before the colonists
arrived from Europe the name was a part of Ameri
can tradition for it designated a region in which the
Irlquois and Algonquin Indians fought against each other
Meaning between two waters it was also the name given
by the Iriquois to a portage between Lake George and Lake
Champlain The French built a fort there 1n 1775 calling it
Carillon from the bell-like sound of the waters. When the
English finally captured it in 1759, they renamed it Fort TICONDE-
ROGA. During the Revolutionary War the fort changed from English
to American to English possession and remained in their hands until their
surrender at nearby Saratoga.
The fourth ship to bear its name, the TICONDEROGA was launched February
7, 1944, at the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company, Newport
News, Virginia. She joined the Pacific Fleet at a time when her services were
sorely needed and participated in the last bitter battles around the Philippines,
Formosa, China, Okinawa, Kyushu and Tokyo. Her planes battered enemy airfields,
industrial installations, merchant and naval vessels and military forces. In one night,
eight of her fighter-pilots took on twenty-eight Kamikazes and downed twenty of them.
The TICONDEROGA did not escape these actions unscathed. On January 21, 1945,
while operating off the coast of Formosa, two Kamikazes struck her. Tokyo announced
her sunk, but her crew saved her. Many made the supreme sacrifice that day, many more
were wounded including Captain " Dixie " Kiefer, who was forced to relinquish his command.
He later died from the wounds he had received.
' - ' ' --
In 1946, the TICONDEROGA was assigned
to the Pacino Reserve Fleet at Puget Sound
Navy Yard. She remained in mothballs for eight
Prior to her re-commissioning on September 11,
1954, at Brooklyn, New York, twenty-one months were
spent in reconversion. Among the changes made were
the installation of steam-driven catapults, a new deck-edge
elevator, an escalator, a streamlined island structure, a
strengthened flight deck and new arresting gear. The next year
was spent testing, perfecting and showing-off her new equipment.
In November 1955, she began a tour of duty with the Sixth Fleet
in the Mediterranean which lasted nine months, the longest peacetime
deployment recorded for an Atlantic Fleet carrier operating with the
Sixth Fleet. In late August 1956, she entered the Portsmouth Naval
Shipyard where construction of an angled-deck and enclosed hurricane bow
On March 6, 1957, the TICONDEROGA left the yards after sixth months of
modernization, and began preparations for a cruise around Cape Horn to her new
home port, Alameda, California. She said goodbye to Norfolk, Virginia, on April 16 5
rounded Cape Horn on May 6, and entered San Francisco Bay on May 30.
After spending the month of June in the San Francisco Naval Shipyard, she steamed
for San Diego and a period of underway training. The new flight deck was initiated off
the California coast on July 17. She returned to Alameda and spent the rest of the summer
warming up for a Far Eastern deployment.
On September 16, 1957, she left the States and headed for the Orient for the nrst time in
eleven years. A mighty warship with a proud past is once again the toast of the Pacific Fleet

Traditionally the naval arm of America's military force has
been her Hrst line of defense. Today control of the seas re-
mains vitally important both for the protection of our native
shores and for the maintenance of the sea lane arteries which
are necessary links between America and her allies of the free
world. A A
If America lost control of the oceans which comprise three-fourths of the
earth's surface, she virtually becomes an island, incapable of sustaining her
allies separated from her by thousands of miles of open water, or of procur-
ing the material necessary for her own defense.
Alone, the warships can no longer be considered as an effective first line
of defense. The tremendous range, speed and striking power of modern air-
craft have eclipsed the value of the man-of-war as the prime firepower weapon
for maintaining American supremacy of the seas. Today's naval leaders, re-
cognizing the advantages of air power as the most lethal and effective means
of reprisal against aggression, have chosen to utilize both the element of mo-
bility inherent in ships and the striking power of airplanes. As a result, the
aircraft carrier has assumed its present role as the nucleus of any naval strik-
From unknown spots on the vast stretches of the world's oceans, an attack
carrier such as the Ticonderoga can swiftly deliver a paralyzing blow any-
where on the earth. Like all Americans, our greatest hope is that by our
efforts we can contribute to the deterrence of war. But, if ever the
moment arises when our country must resort to armed conflict, ships like our
own and the crews that man them will be prepared to accomplish their missions
for the defense of our families, our homeland, and our civilization.

A San Francisco tradition, the Cable Car, begins
the steep downhill journey fron Hill.
A Mom and Dad group arrived to see their son, who never expected to be taking off across the seas, 5,000 miles from home.
Mom was awed by the activity on the pier and aboard ship, and was careful not to become sentimental. Dad was visibly proud,
asking questions, giving bits of advice. The son was embarrassed with his new importance in the family sphere. He would
never admit being a little scared.
The groups of friends and teenagers are the buoyant, laughing ones, seemingly full of spirit. They seem to say, " Sad to see
you leave ", and look toward to your return and the future.
Music plays its important part in helping to dispurse the growing traces of gloom. The Marine Band, Department of the
Pacific, attacks from the pier with their bright uniforms, polish, and music to fill the air.
Time becomes short, children go astray, are reclaimed, and are lost again. The last hugs, kisses and whisperings-in-the-ear
have taken place. The gangways are hoisted away and 'K Quarters for leaving Port, Flight Deck Parade " is sounded. The crowd
along the pier surges back and forth, straining anxious.
Cheers and catcalls flow from ship-to-shore, each side seems determined to maintain a good front. Crew and crowd are far
enough apart that the tears are not seen, only felt. The band plays louder, faster.
The underway signal sounds. We move gently from the pier, slowly edging seaward. The Marine Band strikes up " Anchors
Aweigh". It marches the length of the pierhno one seems to be listening anymore.
Men watch the shoreline. We pass beneath the Golden Gate. Quarters are secured. Quietly, more serious than usual, the men
turn to their jobs and the work at hand.
The Bay Bridge is an impressive sight
as viewed from the island structure.

, Hawaii, America's tropical jewel, was the first non-continental
S - ' f soil seen by the Ticonderoga after having departed from San
Francisco eight days before. This chain of resort islands would
have remained just a beautiful, tucked away paradise had it not
been for two factors: its productive soil and its protective harbor.
The islands provide the world with virtually all of its pineapple
and the Western hemisphere with most of its sugar and cocanuts.
Pineapples are raised in Hawaii with as much care and atten-
l tion, as corn and wheat are in the Statese-and in fields just as
i large. Not only on Oahu, but on all the other islands of the
chain, " Hawaiian Gold l' is carefully cultivated, making it the
big business of Hawaii.
The harbor, which is referred to only as " Pearl l' throughout
the Naval service has an interesting past. It was once held
sacred by the native population and was thought to be in special
favor of the gods. Today, it is very much in the favor of the
United States Navy. Here is the hub of our Pacihc operations,
and surrounding the natural harbor, one of the most comprehen-
sive shore establishments of the Navy.
It was nearly seventy years ago, and before the annexation
of Hawaii, that the Navy was granted the right by King Kalakaua
to establish a coaling and repair station in the "Pearl River."
In a strategic location on the route to the East, over the years
Pearl became a gathering point for the various Pacific commands.
Supporting installations of every kind gradually made their ap-
Liberty in the islands was luxury. Honolulu is modern enough
to be a Southern California metropolis, but is still rich in native local color. It was comfortable enough to offer the
Ticonderoga sailor all the conveniences he wanted and colorful enough so that he could shoot up rolls of film using the
native population or the natural topography as subject matter.
The visiting sailor played the part of the tourist with admirable success. Lolling at Waikiki, sipping Singapore Slings
at the Royal Hawaiian or Surf Rider, or sampling Don the Beachcomber's rum concoctions, he made the most of this
paradise isle. For the more adventurous, autumobiles could be rented at moderate prices for an all-day drive around
Oahu. The thrill of driving through a sugar cane field in a convertible will long be remembered by some of us.
Efforts were made to learn some of the Hawaiian language. Men picked up bits that would add character to their
speech when they returned home. " Aloha 'i covered the realm of hello, goodbye and love, while "Whaine,' could mean
either a girl or a wife. Some progressed as far as "Hoomalimali", which is applesauce I

We came to Pearl Harbor as part of a 4' peacetime 'l Navy, and we found remnants of another " peace-
time " Navy. Here were hulks of ships and bodies of men vvho died unable to defend themselves. But,
in a very real sense they did not die in vain. Martydom always serves a purpose, and Without these
deaths, which shocked mankind, America might have aroused herself too late from a complacency bred
of years spent in virtual isolation and ignorance of the needs of the outside World.
We can easily picture the officers and sailors of the Arizona and her sister ships as they performed
their routine tasks and relaxed in the balmy sun on December 7, 1941. They were "sleeping in eating
brunch, shining inspection shoes and writing letters to their families. These are diversions in which We
engage on a similar Sunday morning in a vvorld ostensibly at peace.
There is nothing we can say or do novv for those who died at Pearl Harbor. Monuments and poetry
cannot restore them to life, but, as We stand at attention before the tomb which was the USS Arizona,
let us resolve that this will never happen again. With God's help, may we never turn our backs upon
reality or responsibility as did the American people during the years prior to 1941. If the tomb at Pearl
Harbor instills this feeling within us, perhaps those who lie within will rest more peacefully.

"How much you speak?'y grinned the little old man, offering the cigarette lighter again. The silver and black lighter glowed
brightly as he held it in his hand.
" One fifty," said the sailor firmly. He turned the lighter over examining the trade mark. The old man Whined.
"No-o-o-o. I make no money. You speak best price, best price."
" O. K. Best price, two hundred yen."
The old man moaned, drew his breath noisely through his teeth, and began wrapping the lighter.
" Dai jobu, dai jobu," he said, smiling as he pocketed the money.
The sailor did not see the smile, he was engrossed in the sights, sounds and smells of the gaudiest bazaar since Baghdad, the
oriental phenomenon called Yokosuka.
Almost invariably the Hrst stop in Yokosuka was the Enlisted Men's Club. The usual plot was to beat the line to exchange
" Mickey Mouse money H for yen. A browse through the Ship's Store and a social call to the beer hall were also in order.
Sweating the line at the liquor store and a refueling operation at the snack bar or dining room were the usual preparations for
the actual attack on Yokosuka.
"Souvenir Alley " was the major attraction for Navymen. This was truly an alley of intrigue, drama, comedy and the
pantomime of life. Crowned with a lavish neon sign, lined with shops and abounding in street peddlers, the alley offered any-
thing-at a price. The prices were in hundreds and thousands of yen, but shrewd and silvery tongued buyers could halve the
prices at the expense of time, and the fun of haggling with the merchants.
There was silk, fashioned into scarves, kimonos, dresses and shamefully transparent negligees. Embroidered jackets, ablaze
with fierce dragons, a snow capped Fuji, pagodas and other scenes, hung from shop walls and were a trap for the eyes. Food
markets were open to the eyes and to twitching noses. Fruits and vegetables in low containers squatted beneath a canopy of
of meat products suspended from slender rafters. Fish were scaled and gutted, adding an identifiable tang to the sometimes
overpowering odor that seems right only in the Orient, an odor that in later years can still be brought to mind by a trinket or
the mention of things Oriental.
In Yokosuka there were also more serious attractions. Admiral Togo's flagship is now imbedded in concrete and houses a
marine museum. Tsukayama and Kinugasa Parks are prominent and colorful places. The excellent electric railway system of
Japan makes travel easy and close by are Kamakura, Yokohama and Tokyo.

Kabuki plays are those in which all parts are
played by males-a result of a law which forbade
Women to appear on stages from 1629 until the
nineteenth century. There are three types of
Kabuki plays-Sewa-mono, based upon natural
sorrow, loss or paing the Jidai-mono, which are
based upon historical legends and the Shosagot0,
largely based upon puppet shows, having a slight
plot and simple dialogue. The main part of Kabuki
is made of descriptive dances and symbolic moye-
ments, all cemented together by orchestral music,
or a chorus.
Almost invariably the first
stop was the E.M. Club Where
preparations were made for the
actual attack on Yokosuka.
One of the many modern schools in Japan-an example of
the efforts toward improvement of her educational system.
The short train trip north from Yokosuka to Kamakura proved an excellent way to view the
countryside. The railroad bored through hills with many tunnels and bridged valleys. The rocky
slopes were terraced to provide tiny fertile ledges for beans and tomatoes. The flat land was
patchquilted with rice paddles and farms so small that each growing plant could have been a
pet, named and cared for as an individual. -
In rocky slopes were villages clinging to an ancient way of life. From slender poles above the
huts paper fish kites waved, proclaiming the number of sons of which the household could boast.
Shrines were maintained in little alcoves and in minor caves carved on the faces of cliffs, shrines
that honored forebears, shrines where flowers and precious food were placed, accompanied by
prayers and pleadings for guidance from a world beyond.
School children paraded along the streets in their semi-military uniforms. Jumpers and white
blouses were worn by the girls, who followed the boys in the line of march. The boys were
dressed in their black suits and caps, brass colored buttons broke the somber hue. Briefcases
and knapsacks seemed to be carried by everyone.
A center of art, religion and culture is Kamakura. It would require verbal fireworks that
trailed golden sparks across the heavens and exploded with pyrotechnic splendor to describe pro-
perly the importance of Kamakura to the Japanese.
Kamakura became the capital of Japan in 1192 and remained so for 141 years. Protected on
three sides by mountains, its only open side is approached from the sea, from Sagami Bay. No
longer the capital, Kamakura seats ifself upon religion and refreshment, playing host to as many
as 60,000 persons a day during the summer season-people seeking relief from the pressure of
daily life, the grinding away of the spirit by the complex life in cities and overcrowded towns.
The Kamakura Art Museum, the Daibutsu-65 Buddhist Temples and 19 Shinto Shrines, the
fabled beaches of Yuigahama and Shichirigahama-these are the things that draw the Japanese
man-in-the-streets to the resort.

Japan's architecture was based on wood until the earthquakes
of 1923, which threw a light upon the permanency of concrete,
brick and stone. Originally the architecture of japan was based
upon Chinese forms, modified by influences of Buddhism, and
Shintoism. Progressing with the centuries, the styles remained
mostly in wood, the accent on simplicity, regularity and refine-
ment. The architecture seldom approaches magnificence-ex
cept by lightness and airiness of design, a tribute to architec-
Evolution of style came with contemporary architecture, after

Set apart from other Japanese cities by its cosmopolitan
air, Tokyo is a delightful hybrid, hardly oriental and
not quite western. The old city, leveled successively by
the earthquake of 1923 and the bombs of World War
Il, has been rebuilt with amazing speed after each razing.
The Ginza, Tokyo's shopping street, would be hardly
out of context in any occidental city. Yet, as though
the hurry and clatter of the big busy streets were legally
banned from it, the maze of alleys leading off the main
shopping avenue is quiet, almost secluded. Here the
Tokyo lady will be seen in many small smart shops,
shopping for her best kimono or carefully selecting a
new bowl for her next tea ceremony. The ultimate in
seclusion is achieved by the inns found in this district.
Built around a tiny garden, the inn, with its hot bath
and quiet courtesies, provides a refuge from the crowd.
Dominating the Ginza is the mammoth Kabuki-za, the
national Japanese theatre and purportedly the largest
legitimate theater in the world. To this theater, finished
with peaked roofs and carved and laquered facade, the
Japanese throng to see the rigidly stylized and elaborately
costumed productions of Kabuki, the dance-play. Tales
of the samurai, knights of old Japan, provide the sub-
jects for most of the Kabuki repertoire.
The weather of Tokyo is worthy of comment. The
city enjoys or suffers approximately the same tempera-
tures and humidities as Washington D. C. Mark Twain's
description of the American capital's weather C"If you
don't like it, wait a minute."D is no less applicable to
that of Tokyo.
Tokyo is not a sight-seer's city. Apart from the
Imperial Palace, Kabuki theater, Diet building, and Frank
Lloyd Wright's Imperial Hotel, there is little to dazzle
the eye of the westerner. The charm of the city lies
in its ceaseless and contagious vivacity. Offering the
best in eastern and western cultures to a demanding
public, Tokyo is never without dozens of alternatives in

So, We returned to the base.
During our stay at Subic Bay, many of us journeyed to nearby Manila. Manila offered us the diversified pleasures of a big
city and the opportunity to stroll through the history steeped streets viewing the scenes of the terrific house to house fighting
that took place in the closing days of World War II. Typical tourists, the crew took in remnants of early Philippine history as
well. The old walled city, founded by the Spaniards before 1600, attracted many. The University of Santo Tomas, located
within the walls, was founded by missionaries in 1605 and occupies a building constructed in 1601.
Tours took the sailor away from the city and into the hills where he could get a good view of one of the best harbors in the
world, and one of the most famous spots in American history. The United States gained title to this highly prized archipelago
after the Spanish-American War at the turn of the twentieth century. Commodore Dewey's battle of Manila was the turning
point of that war.
In 1935, the United States formed the Commonwealth of the Philippines, with the promise at that time to later grant the islands
their independence. During World War II the islands suffered heavy damage. Reminders of it are evident to this day in the
Walled City which is largely unrestored since the bombings. Innumerable half-submerged hulks of ships are visible in the harbor
presenting a hazard to navigation.
On july 4, 1946, just 17 months after American troops had pounded their way back into Manila, the Philippines were given

On the southeastern edge of the great Asian land mass lies the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong, the trading crossroads
and international business mart of the Orient Due to its strategic geographical position and a perfect natural harbor, HODg
ong is to ay a thriving and prosperous center of commerce where East and West meet and bargain for the world's goods.

Chinas only window to the west the city serves the purpose of a trading outlet.
Until the mid nineteenth century Hong Kong was dominated by Chinese warlords. As a result of the Opium wars the island
was ceded to England as a crown colony in 1841 and will remain in British hands forever-or until its present status is no longer

For visiting American naval personnel Hong Kong offered a rich variety of diversions. The island itself was interesting for
the perceptive sightseer Evidences of both the Orient and the Occident were everywhere apparent and in contrast to 62011

At Aberdeen on the Southern side of the island was a village of floating boats where generations live and die, seldom leaving
their water-borne homes. In contrast, not for away in the area around Repulse Bay were the homes of those who have become
rich in the market place.
Hong Kong is a free port and therefore a bargain hunter's paradise. Linens, jewelry, French perfume, and tailor-made clothes
are favorite buys and can be purchased for a fraction of their cost in the United States.
Hong Kong is an island between two worlds where opposing ideologies, cultures and races live together for mutual financial
gain. The new, modern buildings and busy atmosphere of the place seem to express a faith in the future on the part of those
who dwell there. However, the endless stream of refugees that continues to pour into the colony from Communist China is a
reminder that Hong Kong lies at the edge of a whirlpool which at any time could swallow the island.
The citizens of Hong Kong do not forget what lies behind the low range of gently rolling hills which stretch to the east and
west thirty miles north of the harbor. However, business continues as usual from day to day, While the great nations of the
world struggle for positions of power, Hong Kong, the richest jewel in the British crown, shines with a brilliant lustre in its
setting of soft gold.

Tiger Balm Garden was built by a Chinese millionaire philantropist named
AW Boon Haw in 1935. He made his wealth by producing a kind of
medicine named " Tiger Balm ". This Wonderful balm is a sure cure for
cough, cold, headache, Rheumatism, Neuralgia, Gout, Sciatica, Lumbago,
sore-throat, toothache, Asthma, Scorpion and other insect bites and stings,
cuts, cramps, and all chest complaints. It is still on the market.
Tiger Balm Garden, which occupies eight acres, was built at the cost
of about HK3B16,000,000. The statues in this garden represent figures of
folklore, some of which are Chinese, some are Buddhist. These tales
may be ficticious or factual, but the Chinese believe them and put them
into textbooks for children.
All of the stories represented by these statues contain morals, They
either exhort them to do good or caution them not to do evil. As the
stories tell, even though the represented sins may not be punished in this
life, they will be amended for after death. The founder specially selected
these statues in the hope of purifying our sins.
Tiger Pagoda is the most famous structure in the garden. It is six
stories high and Was built only for decoration.

Nearby Iwakuni is the atom-bombed city of Hiroshima. From the site of the Atom Bomb Casualty
Hospital, Ticonderoga sailors Viewed the scene of previous devastation.
Occupying a prominent location in the city of Hiroshima is a
modern building dedicated to the principle of peace. Appro-
priately the structure has been named Peace Hall.
lt is fitting that such a memorial be located in Hiroshima.
Along with residents of another Japanese city, Nagasaki, Hiro-
shima's people know better than any other persons in the world
the horror of modern War.
On August 6, 1945, Hiroshima was the target of the first ato-
mic bomb ever dropped in actual conflict. The city proper
within a radius of two miles from " ground zero" was destroy-
ed, creating such devastation that the area was long referred
to as the "Atomic Desert."
Thirteen years after this terrible lesson, sailors from the
Ticonderoga visited the scene of " ground zero " and observed
the tremendous recovery of the corageous people of this city.
While evidence of the destructive force has a almost disappear-
ed, the people have not forgotten the terror war brought to
their doorsteps. Every year since 1947 the people have held a
" Peace Festival " on the anniversary of the fateful blast. Today
this Festival is the most important annual event in Hiroshima
It is the fervent hope of the people of this city that the world
will benefit from the lesson so expensively learned by the Jap-
anese at Hiroshima.
After touring the city and spending many hours in the Peace
Hall, We of the Ticonderoga joined with these resilient people
in praying that never again will such destruction be necessary
to preserve the liberty of the world.

Whenever the Ticonderoga is at sea and when
planes are in the air, the far seeing eyes are those
of OI Division, under the leadership of LT Harry
Parker. Control of aircraft after launching is a vital
job of the division. Combat Information Center,
under LCDR James Ingram, is flexed with action as
plotting boards develop crayoned patterns that tell a
tale of the Hight of men.
OI's radar Warn of approaching aircraft. They
provide the stop and go signs for air trafic. They
are a beacon in darkness and bad weather. It is the
steady voice of the air controller that talks pilots
aboard safely, when the nerve punishing operations
stumble on nature's blocks.

Technicians and their strikers are a hard working group who
maintain and repair a host of gear. This is all listed in their
favorite book, the Electronic Equipment Allowance List, a tome
of 37 pages listing over 1100 items which might go wrong.
ET's are notorious for their strange vocabulary of equipment
and stranger things that go on inside the gear. The major units
which OE men service include radar systems, radio transmitters,
receivers, radar repeaters and an assortment of navigational aids
known as LORAN, TACAN, RACON, YE LF and UHF Homing

What's the latest news around the world? What's the weather in
areas adjacent to us? Dispatches fly from ship to ship, from ship to
shore, carrying messages that form fleets, or transfer a single man.
OR Division, under the leadership of LTJG Albert Sirois, excels at
its teletype machines, unrolling miles of yellow tape, lettered with print
that spells out directives and orders, a grandstand seat on the field of
action. Another form of OR's communications is the chattering of code,
the dit-dah's that drum the ears of the radiomen. Encode, decode,
the machines whirr and clack unseen, known only by the results they
produce in the Coding Room.
Mail Call ! This is when the hands of OR Division reach out to every
man on the ship. The Post Office becomes the focal point for all hands.
On other days the traffic reverses as mail goes off the ship.
OR Division, the voice and ears of the ship, works around the clock.
Radio and teletype watches have no end, only reliefs. Through this
division we are never out of touch with the world.

The signal gang, under its Division Oiiicer, Ensign David
Collins, is small in size but it produces large results. Signal-
men take great pride in their work and strive to be the best
in the fleet in visual communications.
Visual signaling is a fast and efficient means of communica-
tions. Fluttering lines of color that have meaning are the
iiaghoists, also used for dress ship functions. For close range:
signaling semaphore is used, not only for communications, but
for gossip between rival signal gangs on ships close aboad.
Tools of the trade are not limited to flags. The men of OS
Division also man seven signal searchlights, and two twelve-
inch mercury vapor lights which are used for long distance
communications or under conditions of poor visibility. There
is Nancy gear, an infra-red device that adds security to light
" Back to the Bulkhead, eyes to the sea " is a working motto
of OS Division.
Air Intelligence and the Photo Lab, the two units of OP Divi-
sion, work hand in hand processing information needed for the
delivery pilot to carry out his mission. Through photo reconnaiss-
ance, intelligence data are obtained on the strength and disposi-
tion of fleets, aircraft, shore batteries, and terrain of a military
nature. Photography records battle action, scientific and historical
events, and has unlimited value in training and public relations.
The Photo Lab, under the direction of Wo John Burton, boasts
a crew trained in photography and processing. Each man can
handle all photo jobs and cameras: Speed Grophics, view identifi-
cation, 16mm movie or aerial, and the contact and enlarging
printers that are their tools.
The true value of photography is in answering the "why" of
enemy positions or activities.
The ship's Air Intelligence Office comes under the direction of
LT Kagey. The primary purpose of Air Intelligence is to supply
the ship with the information needed to make command decisions.

Aerology is the science of predicting the Weather. At sea in a carrier the weather is essential.
The men of OA Division, under the leadership of LTJG Dick Garrett, take Weather observations every day. They send their
findings to a large weather information collecting agency called Weather Central, and on the basis of many forecasts received,
Weather Central predicts the Weather for large areas.
Weather Balloons are released from the flight deck. These balloons take temperatures, pressures and humidities of the air as
high as 100,000 feet. The Wind is computed at all altitudes. This information assists aviators in their navigation.
Like vveatherrnen everywhere, the Ticonderoga's Aerologists are plagued by tales of their alleged inaccuracy. The men Whose
jobs are made safer because of accurate Weather forecasting know better

A handful of hardware, with a microscope attached, is aimed
at the heavens. Grunts of affirmation punctuate the air and
heads nod approvingly. Precise numbers are called out and
are recorded. The procession moves into the Chart House.
Astrological tables and mystic charts of the seven seas come
into play. The Navigator and Quartermasters arm themselves
with dividers, parallel rules and needle sharp pencils. The ship's
position is plotted-again, for the plot is kept around the clock.
Aiding the Navigator, CDR Harold Vita, is LT Richard Allen,
the Division Officer of N Division. They, along with the Quar-
termasters, keep the Ticonderoga on a true and safe course.

Although the airplane in the sky may look sleek
and self-sufficient, it is as bound to earth as the oak
tree. So is the carrier plane bound to its ship. Even
in the air, fuel is being consumed: the materials of
which the craft is constructed are minutely wearing
away: the plane trails invisible roots called Need.
When the aircraft returns to the ship, the fuel, which
is of and from the earth, must be replaced. The
aluminum, steel, plastic, rubber and other parts, which
are of and from the earth, must be scrutinized and
replaced if they are Worn. For the plane to return
again to the sky there must be a plan for its launch-
ing, its control While in the air, and its landing. To
carry put its role as a weapon, the plane must be
loaded with rockets, bombs, missiles and projectiles.
The aircrafts invisible roots are in the air depart-
ment. CDR Darold W. Davis is the Air Oliicer and
CDR Hubert Morrison the Assistant Air Officer.

The rainbow colors of V-1 Division, largest division of the
Air Department, tells a vivid story and identifies the men of
the flight crew according to their jobs. Green jerseys are sport-
ed by drivers of starting jeeps and white identifies elevator
operators and telephone talkers. Red emphasizes the men of
the Repair 8 crash crew, tractor drivers. Flight deck directors
and spotters command attention with bright yellow jerseys.
The flight deck is modern jazz, in color, as the crews zip about
on their duties. They are responsible for the safe movement
of aircraft during launch and recovery, spotting and starting
of the planes, and maintaining a ready deck for the mailplane,
helo, or whatever action may be pending, andpfor the continu-
ous spot and respot of different aircraft as missions change,
and change again.
LT J.C. Wold doubles as Division Officer and Flight Deck
Ofiicer. His men on the roof are a laboring and weathered
crew, speedsters in their element.
The colored jerseys are not the only sign of a V-1 Division
man. If a man has a good tan, a tired look and a satisfied
smile, he is almost certainly a flight deck crewman.

What goes up, comes down. Pilots bring their planes down the landing mirror glide path, to a quarter acre of planking and
' h' ned b V42
steel decking, across which are evenly spaced arresting Wires. Massive energy absorbing hydraulic mac ines, man y
men, bring the airplanes to smooth, controlled stops. If trouble develops, nylon Webbing can be rigged in three minutes, to
safety catch a pilot who has no hook, and no land in range.
Catapults and arresting gear are the tools and trade of the division. Working on the bow and on the stern, they are not

The shrill blasts of whistles, the classical movements of arms,
a male chorus in unified action. Not a bit from a Broadway
show, it is a routine led by gold-jerseyed directors and spotters
of LT Robert Colvin's V-3 Division who whistle commands to
their blue-shirted chorus of plane pushers.
The whistle overcomes hangar deck noise, centers attention
during crucial moments when the crews delicately nudge air-
craft into and out of tight spots, or move swiftly to and from
the aircraft elevators.
The management of the oversized parking lot of the hangar
deck is accomplished by this heads-up division. Their language
is one of arm signals, with which they communicate orders-
not dimmed by the general confusion of hanger deck activity.
Scooting the helpless aircraft across the hanger deck is done
with a constant awareness and watchfulness that spells safety
with a capital S.
Ups-and-downs of the division are limited to the functions of
the aircraft elevators. Swiftly, planes are moved to and from
the flight deck. V-3's three aircraft elevators are also used to
move heavy equipment and ordnance.
The amazing agility of the blue-and-gold division is a " Well
Done " in itself, earned each time they safely tuck an aircraft
into its assigned posion.

Flame red jerseys with a " GAS " patch sewed on the shoulder,
a book of green stamps, a CO2 bottle, a swab, hoses across the
deck and gas fumes mix as the symbols of V-4 Division, whose
Division Officer is CWO Harold Wicker.
Viewed by the men of V-4 Division, the ship is a floating service
station. They have 31 gas pumps that dispense the tanks capacity
of 302,000 gallons of aviation fuel and 437,000 gallons of JPA5 jet
When the announcing system blares forth, " Now the smoking
lamp is out-," it usually brings groans from the crew. The same
call is a signal that the gas gangs are at the their labors. All
types of aircraft are serviced by the crews--anot just refueled, but
also the hazard-eliminating defueling operations and the fast paced
" topping off " of aircraft tanks as the planes are readied for action.
The natural danger involved in handling thousands of gallons of
extremely infiammable fuels is never forgotten by the careful
crewmen. Correct procedures are followed at all times. The care
of hoses, pumps and the gas stations are all part of the division's
Pilots depend upon these men for full tanks of clean fuel-a
trust that is met each time an aircraft is serviced by the Gas Gangs.

In the hours before a strike, the Aviation Ordnancemen and Aviation Guided Misslemen of Gunner Hasqell Clark's V5 Division
are scene stealers. Elevators lift loads of death from deep within the ship to loading and assembly spaces on the hangar and
flight decks. Skids have a potent appearance when loaded with bombs, rockets, napalm tanks, or guided missiles. Passage is
given without hesitation as the boom-and-bust boys move earnestly about their tasks.
The nonchalance of gunplumbers and musclemen masks their capabilities. Bombs are trundled about as though they were
wheelbarrows of sand, the inherent drama of fusing bombs has an appeal to an audience that keeps its distance. Men move
with alley-cat sureness as they assemble rockets and insert igniters in napalm tanks. Possessed with both sureness and nonch-
alance, they mind the rules of safety-fire, explosions and horrible destruction are at their fingertips.
Science-fiction tricks are performed in the hidaways of the missilemen as they assemble and check their birds for flight. The
parade of ordnance includes everything from miniature practice bombs to special weapons, from napalm to pyrotechnics that
are used for search and rescue, or less angelic duties.
The peacetime work of V15 is to maintain a ready arsenal. In time of War they are the men behind the loud noise of victory.

A parachute blossoms in the air, a pilot trapezes towards rescue, a bit damp perhaps but safe. His parachute was packed and
cared for by the Aviation Maintenance Division, LCDR David Lumsden's jack-of-air-trades, VA6 Division.
'Chutes are only one of the division's cares. Safety and survival are the watchwords of the Riggers, who care for life rafts i
and Mae Wests also. If an aircraft needs a new wing, or a patch on its fuselage, it is the airdale tinbenders of this division ip
who respond-or they can lift or suspend the aircraft on giant jacks, and perform tricks with their hydraulic test stands. j
Aircraft radio and radar equipments, fire control systems and navigational aids are kept operating by the AT's in any of the '
four electronic shops-while aircraft instruments are tended by the AE's, who also service aircraft batteries, generators, and
snake starting cables across the flight deck.
Problems go to the technical library and information rolls out. Other things in this division roll, due to the motor vehicle ,
shop that hums with the mechanical labor as jeeps, starters and rolling stock is maintained, anything with wheels, including
" Tilly " of flight deck fame.
The Oxygen Regulator Shop assures that oxygen is available to keep the pilots alive. V-6 Division is the oxygen for the air-
craftethe shops band together to keep the muscle of the air arm alive and strong. i

Underway replenishment enables our navy to operate throughout the world. Free to sail wherever the nation's interests dictate,
the fleet is unchained to fixed bases. Without underway replenishment we would loss the seven-league boots which enable us
to patrol the sea lanes, far and wide. Underway replenishment is important--very important.

The Boat Division, actually a sub-division of lst Division, is
commanded by the 1st Division Junior Oliicer, ENS Robert
Lawder. T he coxwains and their strikers in the Boat Group
are charged with the operation and maintenance of the Captain's
gig, the oiiicer's personnel boats and the motor launches. Ship-
shape and Bristol fashion is the proper term for the condition
of the Captain's gig. It is kept that Way only with the expen-
diture of lots of elbow grease. This elbow grease is capably
supplied by the men of the Boat Group.
When General Quarters, sea and anchor detail, or replenish-
ment and refueling stations are manned, the men of 1-B Divi-
sion join with those of 1st Division. At other times their work
differs greatly from that of the parent division.

During sea and anchor detail, every man in the division is
fully occupied. Routine duties include the maintenance of the
anchors, the whole 15 tons that makes one anchor. Interior
decorating is not missed, for the division has a major portion
of the nrst third of the ship's interior to clean and paint.
The sail locker provides canvas for utilitarian and decorative
purposes eea lst Division speciality. That much of the ship
looks as well as it does is a credit to the men of this division.

the first stand of a spider's web across the sea.

The responsibility of maintaining the after third of the ship falls to ENS
Walter Prind1e's stalwarts, the men of the 3rd Division. Because so much of
their Work is done on the fantail, 3rd Division sailors are often refered to as
"keepers of the back porch."
Aside from the constant painting, scraping and scrubbing duties which are
the fates of a deck division, the 3rd Division handles lines during mooring, and
takes part in replenishment and refueling at sea. At General Quarters they
man the 3"f50 gun mounts.
T Men of the 3rd Division have a variety of Watches. They stand helmsman
lee helmsman, messenger and BMOW. The 3rd Division plays a major role in
contributing to outstanding seamanship.

Water and weather have their effects on the ship's skin. The
constant play of Water on the hull tends to remove the gray
paint and expose the red lead primer. Tube-blowing, particul-
arly on rainy or windless days, dirties the island structure.
The Side Cleaners were organized expressly for the purpose
of keeping the outside of the ship in good order. Underway
their duties are suspended, but when the ship is in port, they
are as busy as the proverbial beaver. Probably no one else on
the ship Works so hard in port. They can be seen suspended
over the side or mounted high above the flight deck Washing
The favorite port of the men of this group was Hong Kong.
There, their duties were assumed by Mary Sue and her helpers.

Ships of the Navy are often referred to as floating
gun platforms, Whose principal weapon is the " main
battery." The main battery of an aircraft carrier is
not its guns, but its aircraft. When the aircraft are
out on a strike, the ship is no sitting duck. Attack-
ing enemies find that they have their noses stuck in
a vicious and deadly hornet's nest. The hornet's nest
in this case is the ship's secondary battery, the 3"
This gun is designed for defense against today'S
jet aircraft and missiles. The 3-incher is called a
rapid fire gun, and is rightly so. Each gun is capa-
ble of spouting accurate and deadly rounds of am-
munition at a rate 45 to 50 rounds per minute. The
guns can be operated independently or in unison, a
concert of death.
Properly manning the mounts, maintenance and
repair of the mounts is the prime duty of the 4th
Division and of ENS Charles Barnes, the DiviSiOH
Officer. The gunners of the 4th are sharp-eyed and

,Below the flight deck edge on both bows and on each quarter
are the 5"f38 caliber, duel purpose, open mounts. The largest
guns on the ship, they comprise the main battery as the sec-
ondary active defense against enemy aircraft or ships. Their
job is to shoot down any Bogies that might break through the
aircraft defense net.
The 5th Division, under the direction of LTJG Howard Mul-
holland, is divided into two parts, the forward battery and the
after battery. Magazines and hoists are also a division main-
tenance duty. Each man in the division has an equally integral
part in making the division one of the best aboard ship.
The gunners of 5th Division have a pet peeve, over whiCh
they are inclined to become quite verbal. The peeve is againS'C
airplanes spotted over their tubs. Their unofficial motto is re-
ported to be, " If you can't shoot 'em, swat 'em."

urity weapons, landing force equipment and weapons, and in-
cidental gunnery equipment are all stowed here. ENS Rufus
Gordon, the Division Officer, wades through his paper battle
aided by the division's yeomen. Reports, inventories, and the
shuttling of ordnance to proper places keeps the force busy.
Armory personnel have the necessary equipment at their dis-
posal to make repairs to all small arms. Small arm are inter-
esting to work with, but the division's major job is that of care-
taker to the ship's gun ammunition and aviation ordnance.
Magazines throughout the ship reflect the pride of the men of
the division. The spaces are outstanding in cleanliness, stowage,
and preservation. Daily checks are made to insure that the
powder is kept dry, powder samples are observed for signs of
of deterioration, and magazine temperatures are recorded.

When steam replaced sail as a means of propulsion, a new
crew was born to operate the marine boiler-the boiler tenders.
Hot and dirty hours were spent in the first boiler rooms supply-
ing coal. In those days castaways were given jobs in the boiler
rooms. Today, trained personnel operate and maintain the
boilers at the high degree of efficiency that is required.
B Division, with LTJG Nathan Henderson and Ensign Charles
Billings as Division Oiiicers, is the largest division aboard ship.
It is the heart of the Engineering Department. The eight boil-
ers generate steam at 600psi, 850 degrees superheat, and supply
electrical power to the ship.
Four evaporators, the only source of fresh water at sea, feed
the boilers. The Oil King has charge of feeding the 90,000
gallons of fuel oil and 110,000 gallons of water used on a nor-
mal steaming day to the boilers, and must keep an equal dis-
tribution of liquids throughout the ship to maintain an even
BT's maintain machinery and repair and operate the boilers
in temperatures often above 110 degrees. B Division keeps the
ship on the go and really has a lot of steam.

The ship moves fourteen feet through the water each time
the massive propellers turn once. The screws, four bladed and
fifteen feet in diameter, each weigh several tons. Tremend-
ous power is required to move the ship, to turn the screws.
M Division has that power. They operate the four main
engines that provide the thrust that streaks the seas with a
glowing wake. Not only the engines, but the ship's service
generator prime movers and the related equipment, condensers
pumps and motors are operated by the powerhouse Machinist
The three bladed propeller, Machinist Mate emblem, is the
badge of M Division. The division is a one rate society-only
MM's and their strikers hover about the equipment to operate,
to maintain or to repair it. LTIG Joseph Tremble and Ensign
John Songster are the Division Officers.
A Machinist Mate, the throttleman, is the human link bet-
ween the engine order telegraph and the surging power behind
the throttle. He is the interpreter of the galaxy of gauges that
reports in expose fashion the inside story of the engines.
The ship would be dead, unable to fulfill her mission if she
could not move. M Division is the assurance that the ship can
and does move, smartly, and as ordered.

The Repair Division's important, and seemingly endless task
is Damage Control, one of the many specialties in which the
the division's petty othcers are well versed. Damage Control
Assistant, LCDR Jack West, provides supervision and guidance.
The Division Otiicer is LTJG Harry Krueckeberg.
Four shops divide the divisional workload: Metal Shop, Pipe
Shop, CO2 Shop and the Carpenter Shop. Each lays claim to
producing the most work, the claim remains unsettled.
Tin bending covers an extensive fieldewelding, brazing, re-
pair and fabrication. Installation of various shapes and forms
of metal throughout the ship wears shoes and tempers thin.
It is not uncommon to see tin knockers burning the midnight
oil while finishing a " hot" job.
Water wells they have not, but the miles of piping, plumbing,
and tubing that supply water throughout the ship are in their
domain. Pipefitters insure that water is delivered properly and
without delay. The pipe gang keeps almost everyone happy!
the laundry gets washed, the cooks prepare chow, and the
corpsmen have sterile instruments.
Repair Lockers and emergency equipment, maintaining doors
and hatches watertight, cleaning ventilating systems are all fun-
ctions of the CO2 Shop, which also handles CO2 fire extinguishers.
Making cruise boxes, or even picture frames, are the calls
made upon the division's smallest shop, the Carpenter Shop.
Small in size, it is huge in experience and ingenuity.

During the course of an aircraft carrier's deployment in West-
Pac, the amount of goods consumed is huge. In planning how
much of any one item is to be stocked, the space available is
carefully considered while at the same time the danger of running
short must be precluded. Lt. Oscar Tucker's thirty SK's with the
help of the BuSandA Manual and Navy Standard Stock Catalog
endeavor to satisfy the insatiable needs of all the ship's depart-
ments. Memo pads and pencils, deck treading and paint, nuts
and bolts, tools and toilet paper-all must be stowed, inventoried,
issued and reordered again in a never-ending cycle.
While SI provides for the needs of the ship, it is also charged
with the responsibility of furnishing spare parts for the aircraft
of the different squadrons, The overseeing of aviation stores is
a heavy responsibility which directly affects the ship's mission.
Lt Ralph Woodward and the AK's of SI-A retain in their store-
rooms about 25,000 different individual items valued at over
33,000,000 and ranging in size from tiny registers to huge I-71 jet
engines. Even a small mistake in ordering might ground an air-
craft awaiting a part for weeks.
Ship's stores and aviation stores keep us in business. Without
their help we could not work effectively for even a short time.

Imagine going through the chow line, seeing something like ham, chicken,
roast, chops, steak or turkeyhmashed potatoes, pie a la mode-the works! It
took a bay city crane, a 200 hand working party, fork lifts, a 40 gallon mixing
machine, a potato peeler that peels 100 pounds of spuds in three minutes, and
over 200 sailors, to present the succulent selection.
Drop by the Bake Shop at night, witness the three man night crew as they
bake the daily 694 loaves of bread, or mix the 2,150 rolls consumed at a single
morning's breakfast. A peek in the Butcher Shop, where an interesting machine
produces 2,100 hamburger patties an hour. On a meat block, a butcher might
be boning out the 104 hams required for a Virginia Baked Ham Dinner.
Soup? Eighty-gallon steam-jacketed kettles, one in each galley, are nearly
full-to accomodate the slurpers meals. On a row of grills, almost 4,650 eggs
are prepared for breakfast. In the Vegetable Preparation Room, better known
as the " spud locker," 2000 pounds of spuds are peeled and eyed each day.
Hundreds of pounds of vegetables and fruits are prepared, to end on the line
or on the salad bar.
On the Mess Decks, or in any of the mentioned spaces, the ever present
messcooks perform endless tasks, from scrubbing pots and pans to the filling
of salt shakers, manning the hot and hurried scullery or trundling stores as

The payroll of the Ticonderoga is equal to that of a good-sized
factory. Every two weeks many thousands of dollars are doled
out in wages to shop and air group personnel.
Cash is an explosive commodity with Which to deal and the
responsibility of handling so much of it is grave. A miscount on
the pay line or a mistake in addition may mean a considerable
loss. Ens. Al Mundt and the DK's of S-4 Division handle the pay
records of everyone aboard ship. And the infrequency of errors
in the Disbursing Office is evidence that they exercise the care
and accuracy required by their job. '

The officers have their sea-going home, the Wardroom. While
at sea they pass their few idle moments in its coffee lounge, din-
ing room, or when TV reception is possible, in the TV lounge.
In port, the Wardroom serves as a center in which to entertain
families and friends who are visiting aboard ship.
The Wardroom, one of the ship's largest spaces, and officers'-
staterooms are cared for by the Stewards of S-5 Division. Ste-
wards are adept at many varied tasks, and all are dependent
upon each other. Some of the jobs involved in meal preparation
are the drawing of foods from the storerooms, the actual prepar-
ation by galley stewards, the addition of finishing touches and
the issue of food by pantry stewards-while the service is the
duty of the Wardroom stewards. Scullery stewards are charged
with the cleanliness and stowage of the ship's silver and china.
Room stewards maintain the staterooms and keep Officers Country
in spotless perfection. Service is paramount, but gives way when
the stewards man their battle stations or quickly respond to gen-
eral drills and ship's exercises.
Ensign Richard Milner is the Division Officer. Complaints and
praise from his fellow officers keep him jumping to insure top
performance from a division that has behind the scenes import-
ance. VIP's are able to pass judgement upon the ship according
to the manner in which they are cared for by the Stewards.
The importance of the Stewards reflects throughout the ship-
their job, well done, affects the ship's officers, and spreads a tide
to the entire ship's company.

A small city or suburban town would be proud to tell of its sixty-bed hospital. Such is the boast of our ship,
and of Commander Harry Nordstrom, the ship's Medical Officer. The doctors and hospitalmen are antiseptically
competent in the medico-maze of H Division's spaces. There is the comforting familiarity of the examining and
treatment rooms of Sick Bay, the precise dispensation of pills and potions by the Pharmacy. There is the sweating
wait of results by the Clinical Labratory, sometimes the overature to the Ward, or a cutting session in the Operating
Preventative medicine, over 10,000 shots, spurs good health-is followed by doses of Hrst aid and self aid, lessons
from battles with death and disease. Setting traps against sickness, scrutinizing the ship's water supply, food
service and sanitary facilities, close liason with sanitation officials in ports of call are medical routine.
Caring for 3,000 men is no small job, added to it is consultation services for destroyers that act as plane guards,
and emergency aid to ships of the Heet when they require it. The division, under the command of LTJG Robert
Keesee, must also be ready to aid in disasters ashore, when nature goes on a rampage against humanity.

Paradoxically, the smallest division aboard ship has one of the largest jobs. There are approximately 65,000 teeth aboard the
Ticonderoga. The responsibility of keeping them in good repair falls to the three Dental Officers and the dental technicians of
Commander Charles Bill is the head of the Dental Departmentg he is aided by LT Peter Jensen and LT Donnel Marlin,
Assisstant Dental Officers. These three ofiicers are qualified dentists and they do the actual chair work: the drilling, filling.

fillings and render emergency dental care.
In addition to restoring teeth to good health, D Division maintains an exellent prosthetics laboratory. Dental technicians are
also trained in first aid. During General Quarters they act as hospital corpsmen.
The mission of the Dental Department is to ma' t ' th d

The aircraft which are carried in the hangar bays and on
the flight deck of the Ticonderoga represent the ship's ultimate
purpose for existence. The mission of the Air Group is the
mission of the ship, and during hostilities the efforts of the
3,000 men aboard this carrier can come to final fruition only if
the aircraft are successfully launched from the Hight deck and
reach their targets for the delivery of their loads of fiery des-
Each of the squadrons which comprise Carrier Air Group
Nine has a specific and vital mission. The squadrons perform
as integral units, but their efforts are coordinated and super-
vised by the Carrier Air Group Commander, CDR Louis L.
Bangs. His is a heavy responsibility. The equipment under
his cognizance represents an investment totaling many millions
of dollars, and since flying planes from a carrier deck is, to
say the least, a dangerous enterprise, the risk of calamity
is constant. Unknown and unforeseen circumstances may ne-
gate even the most painstaking safety precautions of both those
who maintain and those who fly the aircraft.
The present Carrier Air Group Nine has been organized
specifically for a single cruise to WestPac. When the ship re-
turns to San Francisco, the squadrons separate to train for
future deployments with other air groups on different ships.
For a fevv brief months the ship's crew and air group per-
sonnel have worked together for mutual success with the real-
ization that each is an indespensable part of a joint effort.
Those in the ship's company knovv that the ship Without its
air group is a Warrior Without a weapon.

The Navy has chosen the Douglas A4D as its standard light at-
tack bomber. This aircraft makes its operational debut in the
Pacific with VA 93 on the Ticonderoga. The performance of the
plane and of the aviators who fly it are a tribute both to the
Douglas Aircraft Corporation and to VA 93 itself where team
spirit and squadron loyalty are exemplary.
The A4D can carry special weapons and, due to its diminutive
size, is very difficult to detect on a radar scope. It used on short
range bombing missions.
The pilots of Attack Squadron 93 have proven their outstanding
ability by gathering an impressive number of individual awards
for bombing proficiency. Commander Paul Padget who heads VA
93 has good reason to be proud of his squadron.

Attack Squadron Ninety-Five, com-
manded by Commander MJ. Stack,
is a day and night carrier-qualified
Squadron. The primary mission of
the unit, in this age of nuclear war-
fare, is to be capable of delivering
an atomic weapon upon an enemy.
To enhance this capability, the " Sky
Knights " continually practice Speci-
al Weapons delivery, methods and fly
long, low-level flights. However, con-
ventional vvarfare is not ignored.
Many hours are spent in polishing
the techniques of dive-bombing, rock-
etry, and strafing for the close air
support of troops.
VA 95 flys AD-7 Skyraiders, the
latest and final version of the Navy's
propeller driven attack aircraft. It
is capable of carrying more bombs
than a World War Il B-17, and flights
of over 1500 miles are not uncommon.
With the men and aircraft, day or
night, atomic or conventional, the
" Sky Knights" are ready.

Fighter Squadron 122 is commanded by Com-
mander Charles E. Mulligan. The squadron
was transferred from the Ticonderoga to the
Naval Air Station at Cubi Point in November
VF-122 is primarily a day interceptor and
fighter squadron. The pilots are trained to
launch the aircraft from the deck, climb to al-
titude and under the control of the ship's air
controllers, intercept and destroy high or low
flying attackers. The squadron's pilots are
qualified in air to air gunnery.

Although the Sky vvarrior's Weight and size make it seem like
an airborne locomotive as it touches the flight deck in landing,
it is undeniably the sleekest aircraft aboard ship. The long
range capabilities and bomb carrying capacity of the Douglas
giant give it and those who fly it a vital role, for the ASD can
penetrate deep into the enemy's homeland to destroy even his
most inaccessible industrial centers.
Commander Thomas Hine's pilots and crews are Well trained.
Anyone who has watched them land their planes on the Ti's
flight deck realizes the skill and precision necessary for such a feat.
The golden-helmeted warriors of VAH 2, Detachment Mike

The AD-5W is a flying watchdog. The "Guppy" is by no means a sleek airplane with its bulging underbelly and squat shape.
This plane extends the ship's radar search area over a space of many hundreds of square miles. The radar equipment stowed
in the protruding bulge beneath the fuselage is extremely powerful and reliable and can make contact with an enemy either
above or on the surface of the ocean. Once contact is made, fighter pilots in other planes are guided to the enemy from the

High above enemy installations the Banshees of VFP-
61 streak through the sky. Behind the glass panals at
the forward end of the fuselage, cameras make a per-
manent record of what lies below. When the shark-
like snouts are filled with their Celluloid information,
they return to the ship Where the film is unloaded and
the process of interpretation is begun.
The Work of Lcdr. Anthony Capriotti and his men
would have an important influence on future planning.
Their information concerning the location and nature
of enemy installations is an important and necessary
means of shaping future combat missions.

" Fools rush in Where Angels fear to tread,"
is only a song so far as our A' Angel " is con-
cerned. The men of Helicopter Unit One man
the Ticonderoga's "chopper" and insure that if
one of our pilots is in danger, " Angel " will
answereno matter the peril.
Working long hours maintaining the helicopter
in perfect operating condition is as vital as the
actual mission, One of the f1eet's best methods
for routing mail, supplies and personnel through-
out the task force, the helicopter has become an
integral part of carrier air group operations.
LCDR Frank Bors and LTJG Vernon Frank
are the officers concerned with HUe1. They have
the admiration of all aboard the ship.

In some respects, printing in Japan is quite different from that done
in the United States. The text in this book was set entirely by handg
the color plates were made by a first rate engraver, who is also one of
.lapan's top artistsg and glass, wet plates were used instead of film for
ln the upper right-hand corner of this page is an aerial view of the
main Tokyo plant of Dai Nippon Printing Company where ALERT was
printed. Having printed many cruise books before ALERT, Dai Nippon
has ample experience in this line. .lapan's largest printing concern has,
in addition to three other plants in Tokyo, plants in Osaka and Kyoto.
The remaining pictures on this page endeavor to show the various
steps necessary to the printing of this book. Immediately to the right is
pictured the binding process. All of these steps have been combined
to bring you a book we hope you will enjoy for many years.

We, the officers and crew of the Ticonderoga, have come to this ship from many places, and we represent many backrounds,
skills and temperaments. In spite of the multitude of variations which make us different from one another as individuals, we
share, in common, a significant experience-we have worked and sailed and lived together aboard a mighty ship which long
before our advent as crew members was already honored by other men why fought and died on her steel decks and in her
planes to preserve a way of life for us and our children.
As we near the end of this cruise, it is very natural for us to ask ourselves, " What have we gained by being here P " Certainly
our memories of these past seven months are not entirely happy ones, but, few human endeavors produce complete satisfaction.
Indeed, we have visited strange and interesting lands which we would otherwise never have the opportunity of seeing, and we
will not quickly forget either the shipmates who have been our friends or the pleasant experiences shared with them. On the
other hand, we have witnessed moments of tragedy and sorrow. We have known days filled with discouragementg we have
sometimes inwardly rebelled against the discipline which is so necessary in a military organizationg we have watched millions
of dollars spent each day to maintain us and the things we have doneg we have foregone pleasures and everyday comforts
which a warship at sea is incapable of providing and which we could have enjoyed had we stayed ashore. But, whatever our
judgement may be concerning our personal reward or loss during these months, let us pause here for a moment and remember
that what we have gained or lost personally is not really important because it is only incidental to our purpose for being
aboard this ship and sailing to that part of the world which the Navy in its own peculiar terminology calls "West Pac ".
For long weeks, unseen by the eyes of the world, we have practiced the art of modern war. As an ALERT carrier of the
United States Seventh Fleet, we might have, at any moment, launched our aircrafts on their mission of destruction. However,
our wish is not to destroy, and, in fact, knowing the terrible power which we posses, we pray that we will never be called upon
to unleash our weapons.
If our show of strength has discouraged a potential aggressive nation, we have performed the part for which we were
intended although our training may never have been utilized in combat. If by our efforts, the threat of war has been lessened
even a little then we should ask for no greater reward that the satisfaction of having fulfilled our purpose. With this thought
in mind we return to San Francisco and our homes which lie beyond. California, open your Golden Gate.
