It was here her keel was laid and the hull of the assault carrier took shape. For a brief period, during the last months of TRIPOLI's construction, Pascagoula became the home for the nucleus crew of 150 officers and men of the TRIPOLI Pre-Commissioning detail. Pascagoula offered a slow, lazy life with a wide variety of recreation for the sports- man and the nightowl, as well as ample per diem to aid the local economy. There was al- ways something to occupy one's idle moments -a favorite sport, a favorite night spot, or, for the bachelors perhaps, a favorite girl. Fond memories of Pascagoula remain with TRIPOLI and will be carried with her wherever she goes.

In a few days, the balance crew, number- ing some 300 men, arrived from Norfolk. They had completed seven months of training at a variety of schools, ranging from fire- fighting to instruction in firing the 3"f50 cal. deck guns, and were now eager and ready for their new ship. Several weeks of careful preparation pre- ceeded Commissioning Day, 6 August 1966. Lieutenant General L. F. Chapman, Chief Staff Officer of the Marine Corps, and later to become Marine Corps Commandant, was the principal speaker. The ceremony ended with the crew mak- ing a game effort to sing the Navy Hymn in unison, and was followed by a formal recep- tion in the vehicle stowage area.

TRIPOLI crew members were honored guests at a Philadelphia Eagles football game, granted free admission to the Barbara Striesand Show in the city and, in return, TRIPOLI hosted a visit by the Eaglettes, an all-girl pep club. Also TRIPOLI was honored with a visit from the Turkish Chief of Naval Operations, not to mention a tour of the ship by several troops of Boy Scouts. Fanfare?

However it was accepted, when TRIPOLI made her way through the Panama Canal on the way to the West Coast, it was a trip to remember. Liberty in Panama was something to remember, too, as the entire occasion was a startling change from the life in Pascagoula and Philadelphia. The Canal that everyone remembers may soon be no more, as a new, more effi- cient canal system is projected for the future that w1ll speed shlpplng through the narrow channel faster Regardless of the changes Panama w1ll always hold a reserved spot 1n TRIPOLIS h1story TRIPOLI passes through one of the canal s five locks 401, And it is a big ditch .M wash U 6 1 r Practice, practice, and more practice. l , 4 l 5 I Y 1 3 1 j While preparing for her first deploy- l ment to the Western Paclflc TRIPOLI 1 underwent her first period of underway training from her homeport of San Diego.

One week to do a king sized Job THAT PAINFUL WEEK IN SAN DIEGO One week from the scheduled departure from San Diego to the shores of Viet Nam, disaster struck! The rough, non-slip surface of the flight deck blistered under the pene- trating rays of the California sun. Working around the clock against a one week deadline, TRIPOLI crewmen and civil- ian yard workers labored to restore the ready condition of the all-important flight deck. Both day and night the sand blasters worked, the blow-torches belched and the chipping hammers flew. All excess paint and the remnant of the former surface had to be removed. Finally the job was completed. And not a moment too soong as TRIPOLI departed her home port of San Diego with her dazzling white flight deck still tacky.

MASTER-AT-ARMS Q The Master-at-Arms force maintains good order and discipline throughout the ship. This is a demanding job requiring the utmost patience and, oftentimes, a strong will. Masters-at-Arms are the ship's police force and, as such, they insure that the ship's rules and regulations are carried out. Even though they receive little praise, they are al- ways on the job. i Administrative Assistant Lt. T. A.

Consisting of 18 hard-working sailors, K Division transported over '5,000 tons of supplies to Marines engaged in combat ashore. They were also responsible for guiding the combat troops to and from helicopters during assault and other tasks. Tireless men doing a difficult job with little thanks and even less rest-those are the men of K Division. 1. 1 r Lv 1.1 Y V1 i 1 4 V rf a V. if fi, 2 Hi H 'l Q: +. lgf ii i I X . i 3 .

Whenever the ship is underway, the Quartermasters of N Division are busy keep- ing logs and charts showing where the ship is, where it has been and where it is going. Using the instrument of the ancient mariner, the sextant, the division can "shoot the stars" and tell the exact location of the ship. Along with their duties and watches, the Quartermasters of -N Division are responsi- ble for the ship's clocks which must be re- wound periodically, plus all the delicate and fragile items which aid their work.

Without S-3, the ship would go without clothes, haircuts, toiletries, laundry service and, most of all, between meal snacks. 107 108 And the laundry . . . The laundry provides washing, drying, starching and pressing services around the clock while TRIPOLI meets operational com- mitments off Vietnam. This service is extend- ed to Marines and other embarked units, as well as ship's company. Despite the heavy work load, the laundry boasts 24-hour service-from start, to finish. . . .from start to finish "Payday for the vcrew!"s Now ethere's a happy prospect!

This includes: the keeping of accurate medical records, in- spection of the mess decks and food handlers for cleanliness and sanitary procedures and, of course, sick call. The division also provides various diag- nostic services for other ships, not to mention the care and treatment of battlefield casual- ties, which is one of its most important functions.

With those two sentences announced over the IMC, medical evacuation stretcher teams go into action, hurrying for their stations. Moments before, they may have been working in offices, writing letters or eating chow. But now they are men with one purpose -help save a life! Previous thoughts forgotten, they run down passageways, scamper up ladders and through doorways until they reach their station on the flight deck. Now, clad in white shirts with red crosses emblazoned on them, they watch anxiously as the helicopter carrying the evacuee lands on deck. In the next second, they are a blur of motion when, as one, they rush for the helo. Swiftly, but gently, they ease the injured man onto a stretcher and then, smoothly and at a measured, rapid pace, carry him to the emergency elevator that will lower their bur- den to sick bay and medical aid. The seconds that save a life?-these are the men thatprovide them. 140 A Marine may be dying Precious minutes that may save a life . . gently, he's hit bad 141 142 To save a life...

During each of her eight operations, TRIPOLI provided close support to troops ashore through helicopter re-supply. Day and night food, water, ammunition, equipment, clothing, and re-inforcements were ferried from TRIPOLI's flight' deck to the landing zone ashore. On several occasions, the ship was asked to supply goods that were not in keeping with the normal items that were sent into the field. One company asked for hot sauce to spice up the taste of C-rations. Another detachment requested a large quantity of ice cream.

W GOOD WILL DAY While in the Philippines, several crew members took the opportunity to participate in a people-to-people project at the Bajac- Bajac Elementary School. This consisted of the men voluntarily devoting their free time to repairing and reconstructing, desks, shelves and benches in the Bajac-Bajac school building. The work was difficult and the weather was hot, but the results were well worth the appreciation and thanks expressed by the school children. f Zi 'WSW ,,., , f. f ,fl 4, . 5 ff' 7 ,,, f A X-15' 1. -' 40 W xv 'i-' .,.,:v-4 ,,.,gf,, ' -.-2 1-H x .gVRfP?1?!!:ii'.S?lE .av 4- A. -4 vi 1.6.

Throughout TRIPOLI's deployment, everyone took time out, at one point or an- other, for rest. As time wore on and opera- tions became more demanding, "catching a few Z's" became more and more difficult. As a result, it became wise to "sack out" whenever the opportunity presented it- self. Any slack moment, a break after chow, or a lull in flight deck operations, usually meant that somewhere, someone was able to get a little extra rest. ix The sleepers shown on these pages are but a few of those who were "caught in the act." 4-Luc!

Embarking in a small boat from the PAUL REVERE, the daring in- dividuals proceeded to sneak up on TRIPOLFS fantail and paint a huge rabbit's head figure a few feet above the waterline. TRIPOLI's security patrol aprehended the "culprits" while they were applying the finishing touches. Although they refused to talk, it was deduced that the quartet was from the nearby PAUL REVERE. After a short period of "confinement" and "limited rations" of ice cream, the four were costumed in mattress covers and returned to the PAUL REVERE. Huw M 30 NOVEMBER 1967 At last! The long awaited day was here! Eager eyes looked over the long silhouette of our relief, the USS VALLEY FORGE. Before departing Da Nang harbor for the trip home. TRIPOLI managed to slip VALLEY FORGE a small token of es- teem - namely a greased pig, deposited on the VALLEY's flight deck by TRIPOLI's helicopter crew from "Greenbug." It was now time to look back on our accomplishments over the last eight months. During our eight amphibious assaults, we safely transported to the beaches of Vietnam more than 9,000 Marines. We landed over 7,600 helicopters on our flight deck, many of them difficult night landings. Over 1,100 medical evacuations were cared for by the ship and the embarked medical staff. We steamed over 36,000 miles during those eight months, and it all adds up to a record we can be proud of.
