As we stood in formation, we saw our families and friends waving good-bye on the Pier, with tears in their eyes. By 0900, the TUSCALOOSA had sound- ed one prolonged blast indicating "Under- way" and the beginning of our ocean-going transit. With Sailors in Summer Dress Whites and Marines in Summer Service Charlies, we proudly Manned the Rails, taking one last long look at San Diego. We knew it would be six months before our return home. Some felt overwhelmed with excitement, anticipating the chance to visit foreign ports and the chance to learn of other cultures. But no one could ignore the feeling of sad- ness we all felt as we watched our families and loved ones we were leaving behind.

Probablythe most accurate word to describe the feeling gotten by Sailors and Marines visiting the Philippines for the first time was "culture shock." But after mooring pierside along Subic Bay's Naval Flepair Fa- cility on five separate occasions, we came to know and better understand these unique surroundings. To begin with, there was Olongapo City, which is located just outside the maingate of the Naval Base. After "crossing the bridge," the mysteries and wonders of Magsaysay Drive were straight ahead. Deceptively quiet throughout the day, Olongapo came alive at night, providing all the "liberty hounds" with shopping and entertainment. Many of us de- cided to pay a visit to the assortment of shops and boutiques which housed tailors, wood carvers, painters, craftsmen, barbers, and the list goes on. Meanwhile, others tried one of the many restaurants which ranged from small carts selling unique barbeques to larger establishments specializing in oriental cuisine. qw ff 1 ' QTOPI: The infamous Magsaysay Drive IABOVEJ: Market Place in Baguio City Before long, the more curious of the Sail- ors and Marines began to venture further away from the Naval Base to places such as Manila, the vastly growing metropolis and well known international center, and Angeles City, home of the Clark Air Base. Other places of attraction were the rice terraces at Banuae, and of course the Pagsanjan Falls which featured a one and a half hour boat ride up the Pagsanjan River to the beautiful cascade of water falling down 200 feet off of a jagged-edged cliff. Grande Island offered an excellent oppor- tunity for us to bask ourselves in the hot sun on the picturesque beach or to suit up with SCUBA gear and explore the underwater coral reef. The BataanCorregidor Peninsula also attracted the attention of many Sailors and Marines. This small strip of land was rich with history from the days of World War ll. How proud the Marines felt as they retraced the footsteps of the fighting men who had once worn the same uniform on the Bataan Death March and through the Malinta Tun- nel, sacrificing their lives in defense of our country. ln many respects, much of the Philippine Islands has become a tourist attraction. The Filipinos exhibit a style of life and culture that is all their own. 83 PATTAYA BEACH Soon after wading ashore following a con- venient bangka boat ride, we discovered that Pattaya Beach was not only a relaxing beach front area, but was also surrounded by several small off-shore islands. Basically, all of Pattaya consisted of one straight road approximately 2.5 miles long. Both the northern and southern parts of the beach were bordered by more than 30 hotels and a great variety of taverns and restaurants. Nu- merous cabana umbrellas and palm trees stood between the beach and the main road. Transportation was amply provided for vistiors going both up and down the beach through the use of the 5 Baht buses, which were small open sided trucks capable of car- rying about 12 people. The hotel accomondations ranged from 'I .f deluxe international hotels to petite, 395- breeze cooled bungalows on the beach, Dozens of food stalls were located along the main drag offering the more adventurous Sailors and Marines a strictly Thailand meal, At the upper end of the beach, there were some restaurants that did offer international cuisine. And for those eager to partake in Thailand's exciting night life, there was a wide variety of Nite-Clubs and dancing eg- tablishments which supplied truly fabulous entertainment including the intensely com- petitive Kick-Boxing matches or the capti- vating Elephant and Snake shows. The Golden Budda was found by accident when a destruction company was extending the port of Bangkok. Experts believe that the Golden Budda was camouflaged to keep the invading Burmese from finding it in the early 18th century. 84 5525? 'W ff 'v-" . an is 3' . ik,."

Gold, Silver, and other precious stones possessing fine quality workmanship were available at prices much in favor of those in the United States. Thailand offered more tours than any oth- er port. We were able to learn first hand about its deeply religious culture, its eco- nomic struggle and its rich fascinating histo- ry. Bangkok, Sattahip, and the bridge over the River Kwai were only a few options to choose from. We could also opt to see the National Museum, the Old Governor's Pal- ace or the beautiful Summer Palace. Many stopped in to visit one of the breath-taking Temples such as the Temple of the Golden Budda, the Temple of Dawn, or the Temple of the Great Relic. Indeed, Thailand was a wonderful exper- ience. . .,l. T ..Sf 1"'..id LCPL Harris and his new friend enjoying a day of liberty. SINGAPORE Upon arrival at Singapore, we were amazed to see such a beautiful, modern city with a breath taking skyline. We had to take about a fifteen minute boat ride from the ship which was anchored out in the bay. After arriving at Clifford Pier and stepping out its doors, we instantly knew that this city was built on busi- ness and trade. We found various stores selling everything from cameras and computers to ste- reo equipment and household goods. You name it, they had it. There were plenty of cultural activities for the crew to enjoy including dance shows and for the more active, window shopping. Many at- tended the cinemas and theaters which en- abled them to catch up on the newest movie releases. The hotel accommondations were first class and very elite, therefore they were very expensive. Burger King, McDonalds and Kentucky Fried Chicken were conveniently lo- cated. lnternational restaurants and American favorites like the Ponderosa and the Sizzler were also easily found.

Malaysian Culture Dance 3iflQ3DOre'S breath taking skyline at dusk YT " THE ANCIENT TRADITION OF BECOMING A SI-IELLBACK The ceremonies of "Crossing the Line" are of such ancient vintage that their deriva- tion is lost. lt is well known that ceremonies took place long ago when the ship crossed the thirtieth parallel and also when going through the Straits of Gibraltar. These early ceremonies were of the roughest sort and were, to a great extent, supposed to try the crew to determine whether or not the nov- ices on their first cruise would endure the hardships of a life at sea. Then, as is the custom of the present time, it was primarily a crew's party. Neptunus Ftex, the mythologi- cal God of the seas, was appeased by the seamen, and marks of respect were paid those of his underwater domain. It is plausi- ble that a part of the ceremony grew out of tradition of other days, even though sailors had come to doubt the existence of Nep- tune. 1.1 5, it CTOPJI: Siipts senior wogs stand before Dave Jones in an attempt to match wits.

Those who have crossed the line are called "Shell- backsf' These Sons of Neptune compose the cast for the present day ceremonies. lt is a curious fact of human nature, but "Pollywogs" will suffer a very severe initi- ation in order to becorne Shellbacks. The Crossing- the-Line ceremonies of today's modern Navy have retained Much of the tra- ditional discomforts and are picturesque. Al- though the physical discomforts seem se- vere, and the initiation cannot be called ex- tremely rough, as most of the inflictions usu- ally affect only one's pride. Those who sur- vive the initiation become "Shellbacks", the Sons of Neptune. The eldest and most digni- fied Shellback of the crew is usually selected as Neptunus Rex, his first assistant is Davy Jones. Her Highness Amphitrite is usually one who will appear well in deshabille of seaweed and rope yarns with his face made up so as to appear very alluring. The court in general consists of the Royal Scribe, the Royal Dentist, Royal Doctor and the Royal Chaplain and others that suit the fancy of the party.

The fat- test Shellback is dressed in a diaper and is designated as the Royal Baby. All Pollywogs are required to pay homage to the Royal Baby by kissing his belly. The night before the ship crosses the line it is the custom that Davy Jones will appear on board with a mes- sage to the Captain from His Majesty Nep- tunus Rex, stating at what time he wants the ship to have the reception of the Royal Par- ty, and with summons for the Pollywogs to appear before the Royal Court for trial. ,,,,.M.,.,....-my-V QBELOWDZ Aboard, Shellback.

The "Aussies" were in the midst of gear- ing up for the America's Cup Yacht Races which were scheduled to begin soon, so it wasn't long before dozens of Sailors were down by the docks critiquing the partici- pants. Others enjoyed the uniquely Austra- lian shops in downtown Fremantle, or ven- tured out to the city of Perth, Western Aus- tralia's capitol, which was laden with Aussie polish and hospitality. For the fortunate few who got to it, Rott- nest island proved to be an exceptional so- journ, with its relaxing pace and breathtak- ing views. Meanwhile, romantic King's Park fornd Sailors shoulder to shoulder with tour- ists visiting form all over the world. Seeing this thousand acre park which overlooked all of Perth was indeed a oncein a lifetime ex- perience. Australian friendliness, scenic beauty, kangaroos, and koala bears made our stay a topmost highlight. 4755 "1w3kLxwL' ww-s-' .:.. ,- .- -. . ,. .1 :- , mg? . ti, V I i jf' fr! frfqg fr V .M v 4"' 7 Y' x,A'g X. 5' rytjgatq, Yymffiw 2' Wgt'i?2'Z'Lg:pQ1b ,, ., ,,,,,f,xY,,fcr - .M , A, -, , W., , ,wr r,,, ,fa ,Urn-Y ,2:4,rffe.Qt--,'.'fJ317 -gy , . ., 4.,,. ,,.,y, f r,., ...JW -,,f 5 'MW 1 ,.,. , , ' 4 , ,, H -,,,, If ,, 4 S if Lyfiiiy, t , .. rr' , ,,.,f ,, 'Klaus-Q QABOVE LEFTJ One of the many spectacular sunsets that we observed on our way to Fremantle Western Australia QABOVEJ Fremantle s city hall with a clock tower perched on top is located in the center of town. tLEFTj America sAustralia s Cup Trophy Who will be the next to bring it home? 6 f 'K' ' j 'E il it 5 A XX ' 'Y .m5,-.4ff,y,39'2CX,-3 . tfihwrmgfbk N CABOVEQ: Australia's ll and Ill show the might that won the America's Cup.

Emotions such as joy, happiness, sorrow and pain. We received all different types of letters from "Dear Sweetheart, I miss you." to "Dear John, l'm sorry, but . . We have received the ever reliable bills from the credit card companies, the bank statements that were months late: and all of the different kinds of junk mail certainly cannot be forgotten. Believe it or not, bills, junk mail and the other assorted items that have no apparent value are desirable to receive over no mail at all. It gives you the feeling that somebody out there is thinking about you, or at least your money. The military mailing service is really a fascinating process. Consider what a single letter goes through. One of millions, it flies thousands of miles from one country to another, trying frantically to catch up to us. And still, it never seems to arrive soon enough. When it does finally arrive, either by helicopter or on a port call, PC2 Short and Cpl Cooking, the Navy!Marine postal clerks, attain instantaneous popularity. They are the ones who sort all of the mail and make sure that we get it, and of course they also make sure that our mail gets off of the ship and on its way back to the States. It will definitely be good to be home again. - Sincerely, THE STAFF P.S.

For the less "Salty" civilians, the periods during which we experienced heavy seas took a little getting used to. Tigers were in- doctrinated into Naval routine and encour- aged to spend time watching their relatives in action.

The Marines from Fox Company Battalion Landing Team 2!1 were al- ready re-acquainting themselves with family and friends, having debarked the ship the day before. For them, the dry land was undoubtedly a wel- come change from the 140 days spent at sea. By 0930 am, we had fully Manned the Rail. A huge wreath was hung circling the entire ship's bow and Santa Claus stood foremost among us to let the lovedones we would soon see know that we were ready for the holiday season. Seeing different parts of the world had been a great ex- perience. But no place quite compared with the good o'le USA. Or, in a word, home. i , zfv' Wy tix' av- ph. W' A lx tc, X ss. ff r 'vi Q ...
