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 va 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. Sincerely, Frederick J. Ruder Commander, U. S. Navy Commanding Officer
