U. S. S. WALLACE L. LIND lDD-703i
Care of Fleet Post Omce
New York, New York
Families and Friends of the USS Wallace L. Lind
h the Sixth
We have completed another trip in the Mediterranean Sea wit
Fleet. This trip has been very successful in that, not only have we received
. . . b t
l able training with one of the United States first line of defense teams, u
also because we have associated with the people of other foreign countries.
Our nation is a world leader. Everything that affects us is reflected
throughout the world. Because of our position in the world, these visits to
strange and distant ports give us opportunities to learn about the people of the
world who look to us for leadership. By our brief contacts with these different
people we can understand more clearly what their reactions are to the deeds of
the United States. This broader understanding helps us as citizens to influence
the decisions which the United States makes with respect to foreign countries.
The way the personnel of the United States Navy behave for misbehavej in
foreign ports influences the people of those ports in forming opinions about the
United States. These opinions mixed with many other factors becomes the na-
tional policy of that country towards the United States. We, of thc Lind, feel
that we have left favorable impressions in the ports we have visited and we are
proud of our record.
We also feel that we have received training which, if the "chips" are down,
will offer protection to you and our country against any attempts to destroy our
manner of living.
This book shows you the progress of the Lind during the Med Cruise of
1957, where your son, your husband or close friend has been involved in opera-
ting, maintaining, cursing and loving that most versatile and proud ship of the
U. S. Navy -- the destroyer.
