'run WHITE HAT
The White Hat - especially the TRUCKEE White Hat - is a remarkable man. He
is adaptable enough to get up at four in the morning to refuel 10 DD's, 3 CA's and 2
' ' how, and then patient
CVA's Qplus 4 unscheduled DD'sD. He is man enough to miss c
enough to wait an hour on his refueling station until the first ship comes alongside.
He is sturdy enough to withstand all weather, and strong enough to do an "E" job
even when the DD is 150 feet outg when green water is breaking over the 01 levelg and
when his hands ache so much from heaving in that he doesn't see how he can do it.
When the job is done and he iinally can get some rest, he is shrewd enough to know
that he may be called away soon, on short notice.
And, after all, he is wise enough and generous enough to understand what it means
to be a part of the best crew in the
he remarkable TRUCKEE White
It is to t Hat that this book is dedicated.

The big job that Engineering does to keep the
ship running is apparent to everybody. But do you
ever think of the little-noticed responses that the
engineers make to our vital needs?
For example, each time the Captain orders a
course change, it is the engineers' pumps that move
the rudderg each time you turn on the Water, it is
the engineers who have- distilled it and who pump
it to youg each time the ship's Whistle blows, it is
the engineers' steam that makes the soundg each

One of TRUCKEE'S major collateral duties in the Med. was
to act as mail transfer and delivery ship for the Sixth Fleet. Here
are some figures that show the size of the task.
1. Total mail received for TRUCKEE: 1,250 lbs,
2. Total mail for further transfer to other ships: 24,150 lbs.
3. Total mail dispatched by other ships across TRUCKEE'S
deck: 24,550 lbs.
4. Total mail dispatched by TRUCKEE: 2,450 lbs.
Total mail received: 25,400 lbs.
Total mail dispatched: 27,000 lbs.
White, SN, USNR, and Briggs, YN3, USN, missed many liber-
ties to handle our mail, and White spent many long hours at sea
handling the mail for other ships. We owe them the loudest three
cheers We can give. It's no wonder that they needed the assistance
of a mail buoy Watch.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR WATCH STANDERS
USS TRUCKEE MAIL BUOY WATCH
The sentry on Watch will stand an alert mili-
tary Watch and observe the No Smoking Signs
posted on the foc'sle. When the Mail .Buoy is
sighted the sentry will notify the Bos'ns Mate
of the Watch immediately on the 1JL phone
circuit, and ready his grappling hook to bring
the buoy alongside. Once the Mail Buoy is along-
side the Watch Will stand by in a particularly
alert manner until the Postal Clerk and Postal
Officer have been notified and take the mail.
The Mail Buoy can be identified by its red,
White and blue horizontal markings. Also, the
buoy has an all-around White light that blinks
"U-S-N" in Morse Code C ' , - . . ' - . J
The Mail Buoy's contents cannot be removed
by other than authorized Postal Personnel and
the watch will not attempt to remove the mail
from the Buoy.
All personnel standing this' Watch will be prop-
erly dressed to stand the Watch in all Weather
conditions, life jacket included.
EQUIPMENT TO BE USED BY WATCH

The Tour of Ppmpeii.
We anchored- aft of FORRESTAL and DES
MOINES in the Bosporus with the city of Istanbul
in sight. Here, history was at our feet.
Mosque of Suleiman the Magnificent was very
beautiful and had large stained glass windows. The
Walls were covered with colorful tile work, and it
must have been very expensive to build with the
beautiful works it contained.
' At Blue Mosque we had to wear shoe covers to
protect the carpets. Picture-taking was prohibited
but several of the fellows took some pictures anyhow.
St. Sophia, which is the oldest Mosque in Istanbul,
Was at one time- used as a church by Christians.
Originally built of Wood, it burned and was rebuilt
three times. Our guide informed us that St. Sophia
was the second largest church in the world, second
only to St. Peter's in Rome.
Next, we passed by the Grand Bazaar. Just about
anything could be purchased here, from fruit to
furniture. Everything was laid out in the open
market. Many fine works in brass and precious met-
als could be seen.
Upon arrival in Istanbul, the Captain had informed
us that the U. S. Air Force non-coms were making
available to the Navy two of their clubs. Some won-
derful hours Were spent in these clubs, in fact, they
were over-populate-d by the men in blue.
The visit was worthwhile, and very interesting.
I came away with a better understanding of the
people and their way of life. Now having a diierent
outlook on life, one can appreciate the many needs
of our friends in the middle east.

Beirut, with its camel saddles, silk brocade,
tapestries, Canteen, Water pipes, Arabs roam-
ing about the streets in their traditional at-
tire, and signs on the stores and streets that
made little or no difference to us sailors due
to the language barrier, was all that We could
have expected and more. The citizens of this
great Middle Eastern port were cordial and
likeable, and they treated us very Well. In
fact, the Lebanese treated us better than the
traditional "Beach Guard" at Fleet Landing
Someof the TRUCKEE sailors were able
to take tours of Baalbek and Jerusalem While
we were moored inside the breakwater of St.
George's Bay Cnamed for the hearty soul who
allegedly slew the dragon on its shoresjh.
Others of us took the usual port and star-
board liberties in Beirut, touring the city and
enjoying the hospitality of the- American
Colony, which was the most exceptional We
had encountered on our Mediterranean cruise.
Their efforts Were greatly appreciated.

On the 21st of March 1960 the TRUCKEE pulled into
Phaleron Bay, Greece, and dropped "hook", Captain Cole,
due to our outstan-ding liberty record, originated a mes-
sage to Commander Sixth Fleet requesting early liberty
for the 21st and 22nd, which was granted.
During our stay the Greek populace celebrated its
independence on the day that, many years ago, it success-
fully fought its Way out from under the tyrannous
Turkish rule. 1
Taking advantage of the tours, a great, number of "T"
sailors visited the famed Acropolis with its many interest-
-1- -1- 194.1455 604670
ing ruins, the most notable of which was the Parthenon
temple. Just a glance was enough to bring to mind the
splendor of this structure as the ancient Greeks Worship-
ped their goddess Athena.
The night life of Athens proved financially out of reach
to most Whitehats. As Piraeus Was more accessible and
offered a number of night clubs With good entertainment
and reasonable prices on everything available it -was
quite popular with us.

f HISTORY OI' THE 'USS TRUCKEE
Mrs. M. L. Royur, 'wife of VADM M. L. Rcyar, christens 'the
good ship TRUCKEE.
s f Y
TRUCKEE was commissioned at the Philadelphia Navy
Yard 1n late 1955 and has been attached to the Atlantic
Fleet CCOMSERVLANTJ, except during her deployment to
the Sixth Fleet, ever since.
TRUCKEE is named for the Truckee River' in western
Nevada and eastern California. The Truckee River was
named Cin 18445 for an Indian chief who led a party of lost
and thirsty pioneers to the lower crossing of the river.
TRUCKEE'S first cruise was in early 1956, when she
sailed for shakedown training to St. Thomas, Virgin Islands,
then to Roosevelt Roads, Puerto Rico, and to Norfolk. Nor-
folk has always been her home port.
In late May of 1956 the ship, whose tanks had not yet
been filled with fuel oil, delivered on emergency call eight
million gallons of fresh water to Bermuda during a critical
shortage. In June of that year, TRUCKEE sailed in company
with ships training U. 'S. Naval Reserve Midshipmen to
Copenhagen, Denmark, and Sheerness, England.
TRUCKEE saile-d with fuel and supplies to Asce-nsion
Island in September of 1956 to replenish and assist U. S.
Navy survey forces engaged in the construction of a guided
missile control station.
The first three months of 1957 Were- spent in overhaul at
the Philadelphia Navy Yard, at the completion of which
the customary refresher training cruise to GTMO was made.
In August and September and again in October, TRUCKEE
returned to assist the survey forces at Ascension Island.
Calls at Rio de Janeiro and Fernando de Noronaus high-
lighted yet another Ascension cruise in early 1958. In June
of that year TRUCKEE supporte-d a Midshipmen cruise to
Vigo, Spain, Oslo, Norway, and Portsmouth, England.
TRUCKEE underwent a shipyard period at Portsmouth,
Va., from March 6 - May 21, 1959. Afte-r that, she departed
for GTMO, where she achieved the highest operational mark
ever awarded a fleet order during refresher training.
TRUCKEE served as a Search and Rescue vessel as well
as an oiler in August and September of 1959 in the North
Atlantic. These operations were in support of President
Eisenhower's round trip flight to Europe.
The ship was a unit of TF-22 in operations 05 the- coast
of South Carolina in the fall of 1959. In January of 1960
TRUCKEE sailed for the Med., where she established an
Captain Cole Crelieved 'by Captain Thomas at press timeb
was TRUCKEE'S fifth commanding officer.
