Blillliw ll' Mb' ll' The insignia of the USS TUSCALOOSA incorporates the rich heritage of the city and county for which she is named the proud history of the previous TUSCALOOSA, and the strength of the NavyfMarine Corps amphibious team. The black indian Hgure is in honor of the city and county of Tuscaloosa which were named for the Choctaw Indian warriozg Tuscaloosa. Tuscaloosa means black warrior in Choctaw and the city is located on the Black Warrior River. The red cross on the white field is taken from the state flag of Alabama. The tusks on the sides of the emblem represent the former TUSCALOOSA f CA 37j which was affectionately known as "Tusky". The note 'Extra Three Percent" is from that ship, and her reputation for meeting commitments by "can- do" spirit. The blue color is selected for the blue waters which will pass under the keel of the USS TUSCALOOSA during her lifetime. The red highlights the role of the Marines in the NavyfMarine Corps amphibious team. 1 COMMANDER RICHARD A.

These engineers find themselves surrounded by veins of steel that carry the blood of life throughout the ship. Here, they meet their challenge, to somehow bring the war vessel to life. Knowing deep in their own hearts that the long hours of toil and the sacrifice of their families will finally pay off when the word "UNDERWAY" is piped over the 1MC. The many hours spent down in the holes, steaming as the rest of the ship is dreaming, are often forgotten by others, but are burned into the minds of those who give the ship life.

As you know, mail has the ability to bring out many emotions. 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 lateg 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 Williams, the Navy postal clerk, attains instantaneous popularity. He is the one who sorts all of the mail and makes sure that we get it, and of course he also makes 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. P.S.

The HT's plan, supervise, and perform tasks necessary for fabrication, installation, and repair of all types of structures and piping systems. Their motto, "lf we can't make it, it can't be madel", is continually proven as they demonstrate their technical expertise. DC's are the ship's experts on damage control, CBR defense, and firefighting. They are responsible for training, organizing, and supervising the ship's crew in these critical areas. Together HT's and DC's make up the core ofthe ship's "Fire Department". R Division's contributions to the TUSCALOOSA team can be witnessed in the variety of repair work and high level of training that allows this ship to stand out as the finest LST in the Pacific Fleet.

'X 0, . f Q I V -, 5. .AL 'M is ' I ' 61320 X DIVISICDN X Division is the administrative body of the ship. Though one ofthe smallest divisions on board, it is equal in comparison to the largest divisions in the amount of work it is tasked with and produces. The following ratings make up this division: PN's, YN's, and HM's, along with an NC, and Ma, and a Pc. X Division is the first division a new shipmate comes in contact with and the last division he will see before he transfers. All personnel questions, career guidance, postal matters, medical needs, and security information is obtained from the diverse group of individuals who make up the "ELITE and COM- PLETE" Executive Division. EXEC TIVE DIVISIO NAVIGATIGN Probably no other rate within the Navy has more tradition behind it than that of the Navigator and his assistants. Ever since man has sailed great distances, he has been fascinated with his relationship to his destination. The Navigation division is responsible for just that . . through tried and true skills, the Navigator and Quartermasters maintained an accurate account of our journey, which touched three continents, nine ports'o'call, fifteen time zones and two hemispheres. Today's Navigator must have a thorough knowledge of old and new, sextant and satellite, gyros and magnets, each with their own properties and peculiarities, each in support of the other. Our quartermasters exemplified these skills through painstaking attention to detail and accuracy.
