ZAFFEY TT J] Pace ONE BRIEF HISTORY OF USS LAFFEY DD-724 The U. S. S. LAFFEY (DD-724) was commissioned at Boston Navy yard on 8 February 1944. After a short shakedown cruise, it was sent in a convoy escort group to England in May of 1944, where it participated in the Normandy invation on D-Day. September 1944 found the LAFFEY in the Pacific running convoy escort, and in the following months of that year she rescued fliers from the sea, picked up downed Japanese pilots and bombarded beaches prior to invasions. From 12 to 17 December 1944 the ship participated in the operations in connection with landing of troops on Mindoro, serving as fighter director ship throughout this period. In January of 1945 Lingayan Gulf was the target of our forces in the Pacific and the LAFFEY also saw action in this campaign. Thirty miles north of Okinawa, on 16 April 1945, the LAFFEY was attacked repeatedly by approximately 50 Japanese planes. After splashing nine of the Kamikaze aircraft unassisted, the ship sustained severe injuries including four bomb hits, five Kamikaze hits and grazing blows by three more Nip aircraft. Personnel casualties totalled 103, with 32 killed or missing. After extensive overhaul and repairs in Seattle, the LAFFEY reported for duty in ComDesPac, and later participated in the first Bikini atom bomb tests. The LAFFEY was de-commissioned at San Diego on 30 June 1947. She was re-commissioned 26 January 1951 and after extensive overhaul in Ports- mouth Navy Yard, Norfolk, Virginia, took part in the Atlantic Fleet Maneuvers of 1952 in October.

So the old haunts were welcome to the initiated ones. Such places as the Sky Room in the El Cortez hotel, the College Inn, and Rendezvous were easily found, as was the usual cabbie offering to take you to " T-Town " for a couple of bucks. Then, too, many of the old-timers had their homes in San Diego or Los Angeles so a mass of men waited impatiently for liberty in the last stateside port before a long cruise. It was the time to get some read- ing material, some little item to be found only in the good ol ' USA, or just a good meal after the routine of Navy chow for a couple of weeks.

We hit two Japanese ports during our stay, Yokosuka three times and Sasebo once. Our ship ' s party in Sasebo was a gala affair with a play by Folino and starring such stalwarts as McAdoo, Grothe, Weidner, Lukachinsky, Lemke, and Gohn. Roughly speaking, everyone had a hellava time.

Let the least little thing happen and everyone scurries madly around in seeming con- fusion trying to get on station or re- ceive messages from the powers-that-be. We followed the flat-tops for five weeks altogether during our cruise and at times things got to be very boring. • There was always diversion, though, in the long days. Some days we cleaned up ship when the weather permitted, some days we only did the normal routine work that must go on, and then there were always the nasty hours of standing at GQ stations watching the striking planes come home to Mama.

There was a gnawing uneasiness in the pit of every stomach and a tendency to want to see what was going on in spite of the fact that it was raining shrapnel on all exposed decks. They lost the windshield on the bridge, a bit of jagged steel missing the captain by inches. On all sides there was almost constantly a geyser of water from the bracketing shells and yet no one who was on the ship that day will ever forget the teamwork in the common defense that the entire crew displayed. It was later estimated that 170 rounds of enemy fire fell around the ship, with 424 rounds of counter-battery fire returned with devastating results on the enemy bunkers. In the 28 days in Wonsan harbor, we fired 5,657 rounds of five inch ammunition and many of the dug-in batteries fired at us only long enough to let our sharp-eyed lookouts spot them and then they were silenced. It was a fitting record for a proud fighting ship to add to a previous out- standing record in World War II.

Several men were in a bar when a bomb was set off by an unknown person. Brousseau has a very pungent description of the incident, too pungent, unfortunately to print. The Tiger Balm Gardens, set up by a local tycoon of Tiger Balm, a patent medcine, were good sightseeing spots, showing collections of Chinese artwork and handicraft.

Liberty here was pleasant and relaxing after the Asiatic ports of the cruise. History lived again as the sightseers of the crew visited the mosque of St. Sophia with its beautiful mixture of Christian and Pagan artistry. The famed bazaar, formerly the Sultan ' s stables, carried a strong (at times over- powering) flavor of Asia. Meerschaum pipes sprang out all over the ship and after a couple of " screwdrivers " everyone agreed that liberty in Istanbul is at least different. r ; i " ( m i ' l| ll fi M Minaret Above San Sophia Blue Mosque Page SEVENTY-THREE Galata, most ancient section of an ancient city 210 feet above your head in the Blue Mosque towers the mosaic work of long dead artists Istanbul University, but we didn ' t see any co-eds Even Fleet Landing has its domes and minarets . . . « « ZL+u •i i nn M r I ' I wrm • . . and Turkish architecture is distinctly different Brought from Egypt over fifteen centuries ago, Cleopatra ' s Needle still stands in silent testimony to ancient ingenuity Page SEVENTY-FIVE JULY Sun MonTu«W dThu Fri Sat 12 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 131415 16171819 20 2 11 1324 25 26 i3 8 29 3 1 ATHENS Living in the shadows of thousands of yesterdays, Athens, the city on which our modern history revolves, looks today much like an American city. It is only when you look above on the towering hills that you see the monu- ments to a long dead people, such artistic and beautiful momentos as the Acropolis and the Ampitheater. Liberty in Athens was varied for a change. And, for a change, sailors found something free in the sandwiches and coffee at the Sixth Fleet Canteen; also, there were girls to dance with. But some of the men will always don a puzzled look when drachmas are mentioned. At 15,000 per dollar, a pocketful of money is nothing.

In the shops were souvenirs highly prized such as gloves, scarves and cloth- ing. And in the bars " Dago Red " was the flow- ing nectar of the moment. But there were the in- evitable crowds of mooch- ers screaming " One Cig- arette, pliz, " or " Come wit ' me, Joe, I ' ll show you good place. " Our stay in Naples lasted four days and it was very pleasant. But home beckoned more each day and it was easy to wish you were on your way home instead of de- laying an extra day on the way. Local Prison Towers Page EIGHTY View of Mediterranean Looking over the blue expanse of water from Naples, one could almost put himself back in the past some hundreds of years when the building below was new and long dead Neopolitans walked the streets.
