uss TURNER Jov
The officers and men of TURNER JOY
respectfully dedicate this journal to those
men who gave their lives in the service of
their country during the conduct of a naval
gunfire support mission off the coast of
South Vietnam on the Night of 25-26 October
1965. The dedication of Carl Deaton, the
warm sincerity of Thomas Miller and the
ability of the Glen Lane represent a great
loss to all of us in TURNER JOY, and will
never be forgotten.
Eternal Father, strong to -save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless Wave,
Who bids the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep.
O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea.

Acasual observer visiting the ' TURNER
JOY wardroom at the end of the cruise
would find the same cheerful, active contin-
gent that embarked for the South China Sea,
but if he were to look closely, he would only
recognize thirteen faces. Although many of-
ficers departed and several others re-
ported aboard during the deployment, their
unity was maintained by their concern for
and friendliness toward one another. From
instructing George in the use of the motion
picture projector, to working together in the
close precision of naval gunfire support, the
TURNER JOY officers exhibited a strong
devotion to duty and to their ship.
The bridge was the focal point of their
activity, providing a stage for the cast that
coordinated and controlled the ship's evolu-
tions, such as underway replenishment, an-
choring or mooring, and employ m e nt of
weapons. Similarly it provided a not-
always-stable platform for the Executive
Officer and quartermasters during the daily
rituals of morning and evening celestial ob-
servations. And when the stage was cleared,
the watch section remained to log in addi-
tional hours on station, administering the
ship's routine and controlling the ship's
maneuvers in formation.
The officers found time to relax during
the occasional port visits, and one member
was kind enough to fly to Hong Kong ahead
of the ship to engage in liason activities,

CHIEF PETTY OFFICERS
Directing their men in all phases of the
daily routine, special evolutions, and gener-
al quarters, the chief petty officers exert a
great influence on a crew and determine to a
large extent the degree of expertness a ship
and crew can obtain duringadeployment. The
CPOs of TURNER JOY are no exception--the
dedication and leadership which emenated
from the CPOs and spread to the senior petty
officers of the ship set the standard for per-
The outstanding performances of Chief
T ibbitts during naval gunfire support, Chief
Schaperjahn during ASW exercises and the
prosecution of an unidentified contact, and
Chief Trexler during the care of the injured
in the early morning of October 26 determined
standards for emergencies and wartime situ-
ations. The day-to-day performances of Chief
Juahan in the galley, Chiefs Pard and Johnson
in CIC, Chief Williams in the chart house and
Chiefs Brumley and Williams in the engi-
neering spaces set the mark for excellence
in routine operations. In the paperwork world,
Chief Eabbre achieved an outstanding level-of
efficiency in administration, while Chief
Pearson attended admirably to the tremen-
dous volume of message traffic.
The chief petty officers' standard of
living reached anew high when the CPOlounge
underwent a facelifting operation with the
installation of new draperies, new furniture,
a built-in tuner-amplifier and tape deck, and
Not to be outdone by the large number of
crew members advancing in rate, the CPOs
added four senior chief petty officers to their
ranks when Chiefs Tibbitts, Pard, T rexler and
Eabbre added their stars. Immediately the
Order of the Fried Egg was hatched, with the
senior CPOs sporting fried rather th an
scrambled eggs on their baseball cap bills.

FIR T DIVISIO
First Division traditionally is one of the
hardest working groups of men on a Navy
ship. This was certainly true on the TURNER
JOY during WEST PAC 1965-66. Keeping with
this traditional role the men of First ,Division
spent many long hours and hard work in the
preservation of TURNER JOY. The major
part of the work consisted of removing rust
and replacing it with paint, but there were
many other important jobs to be done also.
The daily monotony of chipping, scraping,
sanding, priming and ship dipping was occa-
sionally relieved by the sound of the Eosun's
Pipe announcing holiday routine and "Now go
to your stations all the special sea and fueling,
replenishing, helo transfer, plane guard, life
guard, anchor, mooring, high line details."
First Division men could always be counted
upon to do an outstanding job during these
various operations. During fuelings, the com-
petition was fierce between the forward and
after stations to determine who was the faster
rigger. Needless to say, the forward station
once again proved to be the faster, but only
after a close fight to the finish by the after
After many days spent plane guarding,
shore bombing and some in-port time in
Yokosuka and Subic Bay, the men of First
Division again turned to and put the ship in
top shape before a well-deserved and long-
awaited trip to I-long Kong. After spending too
little time and too much money there, First
Division started counting the painting days
left until the moment when TURNER ,JOY
would steam through the Long Beach break-
water. When that day did arrive, each man
could look back with pride to a job well done.

Second Division is composed of F ire
Control Technicians and Gunner's Mates.
These men work on equipment which is the
most up to date in today's destroyer force,
as far as naval gun power is concerned.
The 5"f54 dual purpose gun mount coupled
with the Mk 68 Fire Control System poses
a potent weapon for protection as well as
offensive tactics. Not to be forgotten are the
men who work on the secondary system, the
Mk 56 Gun Fire Control System andthe
3"f50 twin gun mount--the 3" team was one
of the best TURNER JOY has ever had, fir-
ing over 600 rounds without having a
jammed gun, and a c c o u n t i n g for several
sleeves and target drones during refresher
training. And the performance of the Mk 56
system during the Tonkin Gulf incident will
not be forgotten--the two t orp e do b o at s
painted on the side of the director attest to
During this year's deployment the ship
fired over 2000 rounds against various Viet
Cong positions with excellent success. The
lives of these men are certainly not as
glamourous as many might think, for behind
this accomplishment lie many hours of rou-
tine upkeep, maintenance and hard tedious
work needed to remain always at the ready.
Three gunner's mates 'gave their lives
during the deployment. Their lives were
given for their country--doing their job.
Every man in the division, from the
strikers to the chief, may well take pride
in knowing that they performed in an out-
standing manner during this period, and
that while doing their jobs they contributed
to our country's fight for freedom.

Detect- -classify - - destroy. Antisubma-
rine Warfare is, for the most part, a tedi-
ous, routine b u s in e s s consisting of long
hours spent on watch, in tr aining and in
equipment' maintenance. The sonar and un-
derwater fire control systems must be kept
in a continual state of readiness, operating
at peak efficiency, and any operational cas-
ualty must be repaired in the shortest time
possible, or the ship is blind to underwater
enemies. 1The men must be kept alert during
long watches of routine ping-train-and-lis-
tening and must be kept constantly aware of
all sounds in the water around them. These
same men must maintain topside spaces and
keep lower deck berthing and e quipment
spaces in immaculate condition. At times it
seems that their most important function is
the sampling of water temperature' at var-
ious ocean depths, through the routine of
BT drops, no matter the sea state. The
torpedoman's mates must keep the tubes and
fish at the ready, never knowing when they
will be called upon to launch a torpedo on
short notice. '
. There was Fox Division- -over 400 rounds
of practice hedgehogs and depth charges ex-
pended in training, with two exercise
torpedoes launched at training submarines,
long uneventful days of watches, punctuated
with an o c c a s i on al contact and the pros-
ecution of an unidentified c ont ac t in th e
South China Seag equipment kept operating
under adverse conditions by technicians who
held casualties to a bare minimum during
seven months of near-continuous operation.
Rarely seen and occasionally heard, Fox

task groups it screened.

OC Division is composed of the radio-
men, signalmen, quartermasters, yeomen,
hospital corpsman and postal clerk. Though
their duties are all different, they share one
common aim--to communicate. Whether it
is by passing information to a ship on the
horizon with a signal light, flexing a wrist
on a CW key or hitting the keys of a type-
writer, OC Division passesi nfo r m ati on.
The radiomen tune the radio equipment,
type, up the messages and ensure proper
reception and transmission. During the de-
ployment they handled more traffic than
ever before and of necessity developed new
and more efficient ways to communicate.
They also proved their efficiency when
a crisis arose, ably handling the sudden in-
crease in traffic. The signalmen keep the
ship in contact with other vessels in visual
range by light, flags or semaphore, and al-
though their numbers were limited, their
performance was highly commendable un-
der a very busy schedule. The quarter-
masters charted our course, keeping the
ship in safe navigable waters, whether for
shore bombardment along the coast of South
Vietnam or for entry to an occasional
liberty port. The typing of the ship's cor-
respondence and the maintenance of various
records and instructions are the responsi-
bilities of the yeomen, as the sick and in-
jured are to the corpsman, who performed
in a highly commendable and professional
manner during times of crisis. The most
vital link in the communications organiza-
tion, perhaps, was the source of money or-
ders and most valuable message traffic--
the postal clerk.

"Sleepless a Co-Go," otherwise known
as CIC, opened its doors for Seventh Fleet
business at the chop line last summer and
has been standing room only for seven months,
with continuous performances while under-
way. Some of the feature attractions have
been, "The Perils of Picket Station," "ASW
Antics, "The Great Sea Chase" Qdone on lo-
cation astern of CORAL SEA and TICON-
DEROGAD, "The Admiral Axman Story, or
how a radarman third class succeeded as a
task group commander without really trying,"
and the hit that played up and down the coast
of South Vietnam, "The Spotter's Serenade."
The repertory company in the ET Shop
gave outstanding performances with such per-
ennial favorites as, "A Date with a SPA-S,"
"An Evening with Ted and Red," and that
mystery thriller, "The Case of the Tattletale
Transceiver" with Barrett, ET N2, in the role
of the detective.
The whole cast distinguished themselves
during the season. Chief "Ace" Johnson be-
came renowned in his role as "The Sheriff."

cerning critics as COMDESRON 19 and

M Division, largest division by far with
its sixty-three men, is in large part respon-
sible for the fine performance of TURNER
JOY. Led by Chiefs Brumley and Williams,
each man has learned his tasks well and has
taken pride in his work.
Armed with the most advanced and
s e n s i t i v e steam propulsion system, the
boilermen and machinist's mates of MDivi-
sion operate the maze of steam lines and
machinery with speed and skill, knowing
that each valve is critical to the efficiency
and safety of the fireroom or engine room
in which they are Working. The fine con-
dition of the entire engineering plant at the
end of the seven-month deployment attests
to their great attention to material upkeep
and safety standards. Their shipmates well
remember how the boilermen put in long
hours during the rare in-port periods in
order to keep the boilers in top shape.

The men of M Division did, however,
take advantage of some of their WESTPAC
liberty. Their comradeship was high both
on and off the ship, as evidenced by the di-
vision party in the Philippines, which fea-
tured the Chief Engineer as their guest. Yet
their main concern was for their families
at home, and if TURNER JOY rode lower in
the water upon her return, it was due to the
large load of china, wood carvings, stereo
equipment and other household goods pur-
chased by the division.
The engineers will long remember the
hard work that they put in together, know-
ing that they had contributed much to
TURNER JOY and their shipmates.

R Division is to the ship what P ublic
Works is to a shore base, and a good deal
more. Men of R Division furnish electricity,
steam heat, air conditioning, interior ship
communications, fresh water and what al-
ways seems to be adisproportionate number
of mess cooks, compartment cleaners and
working parties. In addition to performing
these services, R Division maintains all
auxiliary machinery and is the chief repair
force aboard ship. The division is organ-
ized into five gangs: Electrical, IC's, A-
Gang, ACSLR Gang and the shipfitter-DC
Gang. The electricians are the Reddy Kil-
owatts of the ship, having charge of the
ship's service electrical power generation,
distribution and utility systems. The IC
Electricians' Gang operates and maintains
the ship's gyro compasses, anemometers,
sound- systems, motion picture projection
e quipme nt and telephones. The A-Gang
maintains auxiliary equipment such as
steering engines, boats and Winches, com-
missary equipment and laundry facilities.
The ACSLR Gang takes care of all heating
and air conditioning equipment, plus refrig-
eration gear and various refrigerated com-
missary equipment, while the Shipfitter-DC
people arethe Mr. Fixits of the ship, fur-
nishing all types of welding, cutting and
brazing services. During General Quarters,
men of R Division man steering engines,
electrical switchboards and repair parties,
which are trained to keep the ship afloat and
to minimize the effects of battle. Not often
in the limelight but always the silent help-
ers, m en of R Division can be proud of the
job they have done in helping the ship to
carry out her mission.

The Supply Division is made up of five
rates, including storekeepers, a disbursing
clerk, commissarymen, ship's servicemen
and stewards. While S Division is con-
sidered the supporting division aboard ade-
stroyer, it contributed magnificently to the
success of the deployment.
The storekeepers, under the supervi-
sion of Chief Tarrell, Lindsey and Salgado,
were busy every day, and many times in the
middle of the night, ensuring that vital re-
pxair parts were promptly issued or ordered.
orris, the disbursing clerk, was normally
computing pay for a regular l0,l3,l5 or 20-
day pay day, or was busy with travel
claims, leave and combat pay. The commis-
sarymen, under the supervision of Chief
J uahan and Bell, turned out the outstanding
meals that a destroyer crew deserves, while
'the ship's store, ably run by Pop Tiller,
turned out 56,000 in profits for the Welfare
and Recreation Fund, thus c o n t r i b u t i n g
largely to the s uc ec es s of the two ship's
parties in Yokosuka. In similar supporting
roles were the Coke machine, the almost-
always-operative laundry, the ship's barber,
Palima, and last but not least, the stewards,
who kept officers' country in top shape and
contributed heavily to officers' meals.

Outstanding Man of the Deployment
Outstanding performance of duty is the
goal of all naval personnel and is accepted as
routine on board some ships, as it is in
TURNER JOY. However, in each ship a rela-
tively few men outdo all others and often even
exceed noted standards of excellence. In order
to ensure proper recognition and reward for
such men, a 'selection committee composed of
the executive officer, heads of departments and
three chief petty officers consideredpnominees
for the Outstanding Enlisted Man of the De-
ployment. The criteria of ,excellence were de-
fined as proficiency in rate, personal appear-

JOY and to the Navy. Their efforts culminated
in the selection of Billy K. Mcliemore, HMl,
as both the Outstanding Man of the Deployment
and of the Operations Department, with David
L. Leonhardt, STG2, of the Weapons Depart-
ment, Daniel R. Brumley, BTC, of the Engi-
neering Department and Carlisle J. Tiller,
SHl, of the Supply Department as the other top
McLemore's competence and dynamic
efforts were observed during the early morn-
ing of 26 October, when he provided medical
care to the three men seriously injured in the
explosion of Mount 53, materially lessening the
dangers of shock, infection, and future
complications. On another occasion his prompt
and correct first aid kept a seaman, critically
injured in a fall at sea, alive until he could be
delivered to the U.S. Naval Hospital at S ubic
Bay. On a day-to-day basis McLemore demon-
strated a positive attitude and unstintingly
strove to improve his ship and medical de-
For his performance, McLemore was a-
warded a commendation by the Commanding
Officer, thirty days' leave, a plaque and an en-
graved wristwatch. The departm ental out-
standing men each received a letter of com-
mendation and an engraved plaque for their
role in making TURNER JOY a top performer
in Seventh Fleet. '

Although a radar picket ship plays a vital role
in an antiaircraft Warfare environment, picket
duty is customarily long and tedious. From hey
vantage point off Hainan Island during the early
Weeks of the deployment, TURNER JOY elec-
tronically monitored the air lanes and guarded
the sea corridors, but she also managed to

At two lavish spectaculars, staged by the Welfare
and Recreation Committee, TURNER JOY com-
memorated her sixth birthday and feted the hol-
iday season during successive trips to Yokosuka.
While the commissary department ably catered to
the creW's appetite, dance music was provided by
two bands and entertainment by the songs of a fe-
male V oc alis t and the magic of Nocon the Mar-

Bringing the sounds and excitement of the Casino
to the Mess Decks for an evening, TURNER JOY
provided a different brand of entertainment as
well as collected funds for the annual Navy Relief
Drive. In last year's efforts, the ship contributed
the unusual sum of 5951, the largest contribution
by a Long Beach-based destroyer.

Duringa lull in the rains, children of the San
Benito Barrio School were visited by an of-
ficer and three men from TURNER J OY,who
carried with them several cartons of
Project Handclasp textbooks. The four room
school, located in Dinalupiban, Bataan Prov-
ince, housed over 28O children in grades one
through five, as well as a staff of five.teach-
On the following day TURNER JOY hosted
twenty students, the teaching staff and
barrio officials for a children's party on
board, where they were greeted by the Com-
manding Officer and several v ol u n t e e r s
from the crew. The later distributed athletic
goods, toys and ship's souvenirs among the
guests, while providing the personal contact

Bringing the warmth of Christmas to twenty
children from the Shunkoo Gakuen Orphan-
age, TURNER JOY was again the host for a
childrenfs party during her December visit
to Yokosuka, Japan. The orphanage was
later visited by an officer and several en-
listed men with additional athletic items and
toys for the children. Similarly, medical
supplies wer e donated to the Kinugasa
Christian Hospital, which was inthe
process of repairing the extensive damage
done by a fire in 1960.
During the same port visit, TURNER JOY
personnel also donated the unusally high

For the majority of the deployment TURNER JOY
operated with fast attack carrier task groups,
first with USS CORAL SEA COVA 435 and later
with USS TICONDEROGA QCVA 14 J. Ranging the
entire Vietnamese coast, the task group provided
tactical air s upp ort in S outh Vietnam and air
strikes in the north. As a screening unit,
TURNER JOY guarded the carrier against hostile
submarine or air activity, as well as providing
rescue destroyer services on a regular basis.

ing the water on two occasions to recover debris.
TURNER JOY assisted in the rescue of one pilot
and participated in the long, unsuccessful
searches for two others.

The endurance of a ship is measured by her abil-
ity to procure fuel, stores and repair parts at sea.
During her deployment TURNER JOY was linked
to replenishment ships over 55 hours in 86 trips
alongside, and she displayed her versatility dur-
ing numerous simultaneous fuelings and rearm-
ings from USS SACRAMENTO CAOE lj as Well
as during two vertical replenishments from USS
MARS CAF S 15.
The 23rd of September found TURNER JOY
in the Gulf of Thailand conducting the first
naval gunfire support mission ever
conducted off South Vietnam's west coast.
Two days later she was on the east coast of
South Vietnam engaged in similar fire sup-
port efforts. The ship expended 667 rounds
of high explosive ammunition on twenty tar-
gets during these assignments. After abrief
upkeep p eriod in Subic Bay, the ship re-
turned to the coastal area of South Vietnam
for two weeks of naval gunfire support, rang-
ing from Cape St. Jacques in the Mekong
Delta to Chu-Lai. TURNER JOY patrolled
the coast for a week, firing 364 rounds a-
gainst twenty-three targets with excellent
effect. On 25 October TURNER JOY was or-
dered into a position near Chu-Lai to pro-
vide support for U.S. and South Vietnamese
ground forces. Destroyed were a reported
57 structures and a confirmed 35 Viet Cong
infantrymen. At the c on c l u ski on of the in-
tense action, a round which had misfired in
Mount 53 detonated as efforts were being
made to clear it from the gun, damaging the
mount, killing three men and injuring three
others. After placing the casualties in the
care of medical facilities ashore at Da
Nang, TURNER JOY proceeded to Subic Bay
At year's end TURNER JOY was again on
station off the South Vietnamese coast and
ready to provide naval gunfire support to
friendly forces ashore. The new year began
with a bang when the long guns of TURNER
JOY reached out to smash Viet Cong tar-
gets for two days. In the final analysis,
TURNER JOY- expended 2030 rounds in 84
missions, or an average of less than 25
rounds per effective mission. This was over
75 tons of 5"f54 ammunition. q
