A long shrill whistle, an ear splitting steam blast resounds from every bulkhead. The ship drops its mooring lines from stone pilings and last prepara- tions are completed. Underway. What's ahead? Where are we going? These and countless other questions are answered by one simple code word. "WESTPAC". The Western Pacific. The grey sleek hull slides away from the dock, splashing and tossing a spray around its broad tail. The grey streamlined hull pitching back and forth like some angry sea reptile, with its gaping stacks yawning and smoke rolling forth, in gigantic mon- ster fashion. And from within, the hatches escrete sounds of The gears' powerful grinding, the genen energy. ators' straining whine, and working adjacent the ' lb k rd into mighty screws propel the sleek hul ac wa the dark coaxing brine. Then the anxious serpent 't f ntail its bow rises and knife edged pro- drops 1 s a , , pellers jerk violently, spin, and the ship shoots out ' ' ' kl 'n like a proiectile. The monster slides guic y 1 snake like agility, through the reluctant shoals to the sea . . . free seal Then the potential of a nation, A destructive masterpiece is underway. The threatening destroyer is energized! ,. Q , 3 M, f, , X . .Qc-V .,, ,, if Q J f V 91.7 K. U.S.S. BLACK ,! 1: 'Q- jj 3. til I DD666 is .N THE CAPTAIN "Commander Charles E. Stastny is a graduate of the U. S. Naval Academy Class of 1943. Upon completion of trade school studies, he reported to the USS MASSACHUSETTS CBB 591 which took part in the Casablanca campaign in the Atlantic and the Tarawa, Makin Islands, and Bouganville campaigns in the Pacific. He returned to the United States to attend Sub- marine School and graduated in 1944. He finished out the War aboard the USS BESUGO CSS 3211 with five war patrols to his credit. Since the war, he has commanded the USS DIABLO fSS 4791 and the USS BAZOBBACK KSS 3941. Duty ashore has included tours at the U. S. Naval Post Graduate School, Monterey, California and in the Naval Science Department at Harvard University. His tour of duty prior to this command was the Staff of Commander Carrier Division Nineteen as Anti- Submarine Officer. He has' been awarded the Bronze Star with the Combat "V" and the Purple Heart." U. S. S. BLACK CDD-6661 CXO FLEFT POST OFFICE suv Fmwcrsco. cA1.1FoaN1A 1 June 1961 From: Commanding Officer, U.S.S. BLACK CDD 6662 To: The Crew and Friends of the U.S.S. BLACK CDD 6662 Subj: WESTPAC Cruise, 1961 It has been my privilege to command the BLACK during a long and arduous cruise in Western Pacific waters. The Black became a member of the first team when the ship ,joined the 7th Fleet during January of 1961. Why did we make this cruise? Why was it necessary to spend many months in foreign waters away from our friends and families? Why was the ship kept fully trained and combat ready? lhese questions and many more can b very simply. The United States and her allies are engaged ' communist countries who are determined to change a conflict of arms but rather a struggle call this struggle a "Cold War" our adversaries feel t communists w co e answered in a struggle with our way of life. Ibis is not for the minds of men. At present we . It could easily develop into a "hot war" if hat we are weak physically, mentally and morally. The ould engage us in a "shooting war" tomorrow if they felt that they Uld Win. We must be ever alert and willing to fight for the four freedoms we inherited from our forefathers. It is every freedom loving man 's right and privilege to sacrifice worldly pleas?-uses in order to protect our precious inheritance. Communist leaders have only one goal and that is to inflict their way of life on all peoples of the world. In order to prevent world domination by 00mml1niSm we must maintain a strong military force ever ready to meet force with force in any corner of the world. lbe foregoing explains why we made this cruise. It was hard work but this book is a constant reminder that we had our moments of pleasure. It will keep fresh in our minds and hearts the many friends we have made amongst our ship- mates and in the foreign lands we have visited. We will be reminded of the hungry families we have helped by our generous contributions of the "noodle machine" to the refugees of Hong Kong. 4 I am proud to have served with the fine officers and crew of the BLACK. You overcame great obstacles with hard work, devotion to duty and many hours of self sacrifice. To the wives, sweethearts and friends of the Black, we thank you for your oyal support and patience during the long months of our cruise. ' To the officers and crew I thank you for your loyalty and hard work. A earty "Well Done" to all of you. To our country and our wonderful navy - It was our pleasure to serve.

There was nothing to do, except to drink brew, Take pictures, and stroll in the sand. They had a qreat to-do, there in World War II, To turn hack the Iapanese force. It doesn't look to us, that it was Worth the fuss, But it kept the enemy from our shores. GUAM From Midway to Guam, with her beautiful palm, We crossed the date line on the way. Now there were many in the crew, from the old to the new, Who can say they were salts on that day. We had a party or two, as we always do, To let off a little steam. lt was repairs for the ship! l But somebody slipped, lt was repairs tor the crew it would seem. The next place to ao as all of you know, Is the land of the Philippines. Manila is nice, and the airls do entice, And on rum they are short by no means. But We don't hit this port, We are always cut short, So it's Suloic and Glonqapo. We had lots of fun but l'rn a son-of-a-gun, We coulcln't tincl any place to ao.

LAST STOP - SUBIC BAY We stood out from Subic Bay To do a job for the five oh three, So that she could come in To enjoy Olongapo. As she came limping in We met her in the stream. Her destination the tender To help her make more steam. Her compets We observed And engineering did quite well. But some of the things that were seen Will be best it We never tell. The trembling Tee does really try, But when the breakwater We do see, It will be as always Wilkinson, Black, And Fellowman still number three. When Long Beach We do see And they ask Who's that in tow, It will be plain as it can be That its number five oh three. .qty t I . 1 46 With a last replenish, our job was finished, At least in Westpac, for now We were on our Way, to the U.S.A. Home was just over our bow. Through the middle of the night, with stars shining briqht, At 35 knots We did bound. With our wake a straight line, our squadron behind, They couldn't catch this old greyhound. Then we got our relief, to our great grief, We thought our Work Was over. Though We could steam, we Wasn't too clean, They Wanted us to smell like clover. So we Worked all night, till the sun shone bright, So tired we could hardly see. Our home was gleaming, and the Commodore beaming, "We have passed", cried the Captain with glee. HOMEWARD BDUND X A Q mf ', 1 HDMECOMING E x 'HM!SQE'ME,7" 1 A. , X ' A f Q! Q 1 L-iii? Unless the Wind and sea abate I cannot transfer human treiqht. To do so at this bouncy time Would break up more than this lousy rhyme. MEMORABLE SCENES "A DESTROYER CREW" There's a roll and a pitch and an heave and a hitch To the nautical gait they takeg For they're used to the cant Of decks aslant As the White-toothed combers break On the plates that thrum Like a beaten drum To the thrill of the turbines might And the knife bow leaps Through the mighty deep With the speed of a shell in flight Oh! Their scorn is quick For the crews that stick To the carrier's steady floor, For they love the lurch Of their own frail perch At thirty-five knots or more. They don't get much Of the drill and such That the carrier jockies dog But they sail the seas In their dungarees A salty destroyer's crew. They don't climb At their sleeping time To a rack that sways and bumpsg But leap "kerplunk" To a cozy bunk that Quivers and bucks and jumps. They hear the sound Of the Waves that pound On the half-inch plates of steel, And they close their eyes To the lullabies Of the creaking sides and keel They're a lusty crowd That's vastly proud Of the slim gray craft they driveg Of the roaring screws And the humming flues That make her a thing alive. They love the lunge Of her surging plunge And the murk of her smoke screen too As they sail the seas In their dungarees A salty destroyer's crew. "AT LONG LAST" What manner of ship is this I see With all hands turned to on bending knee? All of her crew are working hard While other ships are resting in the yard. Men painting her guns and painting her sides F rom every position a bos'n chair rides. It looks like an ant hill covered with ants: The only difference is bell bottom pants. Trucks full of chow and some full of gear Are constantly stopping along the pier. They're filling her holds and taking great care Could it be that she's going somewhere? Snipes are busy checking such things As diesel generator and main bearing rings. Everyone's moving at such a fast pace That it looks like some fanatical race. The yeoman are turned to typing out papers, While short timers are doing all kinds of caper The storekeepers are trying to calculate pay, Gads, even the doc is painting sick bay. The deck force has gone ape, painting around, F rom crack of dawn 'till the sun in drowned. No matter where you look, from number 2 stack to keel The waiting is over. This is for real! What makes a ship act in these strange ways? lt's easy to figure, only a few more days. You ask where she's going, where she will roam? Nowhere, my friend, she's just going home!
