B. lVlcQuay Operations Officer The Operations Officer is responsible for gathering and dissemination of information by any and all of several complex channels: the combat information center, the naval communications system, the registered publications system, etc. He also is responsible for keeping all interested parties in the naval chain of command thoroughly informed of UNlON"s status, by means of the many complicated reporting systems to which he is responsible. By means of a small, but welletrained team of men, LCDR McQuay always kept things in perspective and always seemed to have a "book" solution to any problem that a- rose. Mr. McQuay's leadership is of a personal yet authoritative nature, brought about by his natural friendliness, com- bined with a high degree of skill and com- petence at his iob, which inspires and encourages those who work with him.

Rosenberg, COMPHIB- FORSEVENTHFLT. The ceremony was highlighted by a dem- onstration of amphibious tactics and maneuvers designed to demonstrate the versatility and mobility of amphibious forces during a military striking opera- tion. UNlON's participation was an excellent opportunity to "Show our stuff" and we were organized. well in advance. lf the letters and messages that came in afterward were any indication, one would have to say the ceremony was an out- standing success. x E ff 4 S V? , Q.

Rainy nights loading cargo in Da Nang were the rule in November as UNION made lifts of marines and cargo to Okinawa. But despite long hours and little sleep, the deck hands moved countless pallets, CON EX boxes, vehicles, and crates of all shapes and sizes, without a hitch, and always in record time. Advancements in rate in Deck Department came through hard work and study ofthe Boatswain's Mate rating. Of all the advancements that took place on the cruise, the most significant was the advancement of Mr. Ross to Lieutenant Commander. His leadership and devotion to duty were an outstanding example to us all. IST DIVISIO ENS W.J. Cornish BIVICS H. Large For lst Divison,'WESTPAC '69 was a challenge, an experience, and many emotions. Responsible for all deck spaces forward of the superstructure, the men expected a lot of work but never dreamed how much. However, behind the leadership of a fine group of petty officers, they effectively met and conquered Da Nang, Ready Group Bravo, Keystone Cardinal cargo, .lifts to Okinawa, and aid to the Coast Guard at French Frigate Shoals. WESTPAC'69 meant more than hard work however, shopping sprees in places like Hawaii, Japan, and Okinawa, beer bashes in Da Nang, the deck party in Koza City, Okinawa, and the development of strong friendships with shipmates who had previously been only new faces. The cruise wasatime of ambition and despair, ioy and disappointment, but especially, pride in a iob well done. The men in First Division and the men of UNION were a team that pulled together unself- ishly in service to their country. Such a service will always remember and be proud. SA R. Ainsworth C X SN Ni.

With the loading and offloading of UNION and other ships in Ready Group Bravo, Third Division worked many long hours in occasional tropical downpours, sweltering heat and even the pitch .black of night. The boats were also employed in Operation "DEFIANT STAND" in September, a practice amphibious landing in Da Nang Harbor in October, and numerous trips to Red Beach, Tien Sha Landingtand Buckner Bay Boat Basin for those well- deserved and well-spaced liberty runs! Who could ever forget the comfortable wardrobe the boat group was sup lied with lflak iackets under kapok's with helmets or the outstanding night accomodations at the fuel barge inn, Da Nang!

Both a movie critic and the butt of many of the wardroom's jokes, lst Lt. Bob Caudill went up to the bridge and became a qualified underway watchstander. However, the true function of a Combat Cargo Officer be- came known with the "Keystone Cardinal" lifts. Arranging for the swift and smooth operations of these lifts, it was necessary for him to make several flights from Okinawa to Viet Nam., He proved to be a credit to both the UNION and the Corp. in his work and contributed signifi- cantly. to the overall success of the "Keystone Cardinal" lifts. is ii 5 !

Emery, SC Supply Officer This cruise was a working one for Supply as it was for the rest of the ship. We found ourselves using many new sources of supply from the new, fully-automated AFS to the AO with its limited supply of fresh provisions. We seldom saw a supply center and often had to use our imagination and ingenuity in seguring the- things we needed. Several of our people tackedon crows, Galantino, Blount, and Ritter all made third class and Cervantes made second class. 5 Supply was not untouched by the beard growing craze as Greer, SHI, Cunningham, SH2, Boyer, SH3, Simonian, SN, and Emery SKS, all sported whiskers for several months. Only Emery and Greer stuck out to the end, however. We will remember many things from this cruise as we go to our seperate duty sta- ' tions but those that will remain foremost in our minds are: 47,928 cans of soda sold, 7735 gallons of milk drunk, 4552 dozen eggs served, S286,606 paid, rainy box splitting inreps, deck sentry and plot board watches, the galley underway, and the rol- ling. sleepless nights we suffered together.

Richter The UNlON's main battery, her boats, was given a rigorous workout in amphibious underway training iust before the ship deployed to WESTPAC. The experience was invaluable for the assault boat . engineers of "A" Division and it enabled each one to assessthe capabilities and problem areas of the engineering plant in his boat. When the UNION per- formed a practice onefalfa in Okinawa it was expected that all boats were again ready to meet all commit- ments. By the time the UNION reached Da Nang, all boats were ready. Every assault boat engineer remembers the frequent choice they had between standing three section watches in the hole or spending the night on the boats in the pouring rain. Both Aguilera and Tarro fondly think back to the days when the gig and the LCPL ' demanded somuch of their attention. Taking the . heads off the engines seemed to be a weekly occur- rence. The,l.CPL, had the most enviable record, though---two overhauls and one new engine. "A" Division's most conspicuous success was lo- cated on the fantail. The mechanical monstersthat caused the crew to sweat during much of the last cruise, kept the compartments cool this year and even enabled cokes to be cooled when the ice machine was locked. Warfield assumes much of the credit because of the salt water cooling system he originated for the starboard air conditioning diesel. 'RE X N N NWA N X xx V.

Although new to the ship, joining here in Yokosuka, EMCS Street, together with EMI Barker, formed a most effective working team. Through rainy' weather, frequent offloadings of boats and three quick round trips between Vietnam and Okinawa, thanks to "E" Divison, the deck winches held up under the great strain. Their 24 hour services enabled the equipment to be ready for all requirements, even though two winches required new armatures. While the crew would tend to forget the "crash" items during the cruise, like boat light checks and forklift battery recharging, they cannot fail to remember the duty electrician rapid responses to the call of the IMC, summoning him to number 3 hatch.

The pride was in a job well done, in twenty- two years of service, hard work, and devotion. The sadness was that sadness which always comes when a cherished friend and respected shipmate "swallows the anchor". Tony Sefcyk was not, and will not be, forgotten by the men he led and taught so much. M DIVISIO CWO-2 E. Bergan IVIIVICCSSJ L.C.

Adams The bo s who load and unload UNlON's cargo and those who stand those "Hot" watches in the engineroom may think that X Division has it easy, but who puts the mail from home in their hands and who makes sure that'Seaman Jones is ad- vanced to Petty Officer Third Class on time? You guessed it--X Division! The preceeding was iust two of the jobs we havep those service records must be up to date, the Captain's letters must get t ped, the POD must get out each day and the direc- tives which we hold have to b'e kept up to date. X Division is the UNlON's contact with the Navy chain of command and handles the thoughts which you have put on paper. Notice comes to us when we don't, instead of do-- -remember the Captain's orders--we'd like to forget that one. Lastly, no one comes aboard or can leave UNION unless that paperwork is- done and we try to keep on top of it at all times. Many is the night when the 'midnight oil' is burning in the ship's office. Headwork can be as tiring as physical--in many ways. YN3 FLD. Hueston YN2 D,lVl. Smith SN J.W. White i T 0' at M nv 47" 1 i X 5 i L Q 'x F 5 X '- i i 5 . y p . 1 Q k.
