OF A SHlP"
' In the early light a dockside drama is materializ-
ing. A day of goodbyes, tear-filled eyes and anxiety.
Today we leave!
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-
And from within, the hatches escrete sounds of
The gears' powerful grinding, the genen
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!

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
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
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 once was cr ship of the force,
Who was told to keep station of course
Twcrs the lcrst night at sect,
"Whcrt me Worry," said she
And continued to straddle the course.
We sailed one day from the U.S.A.
The men of the mighty Black.
We had a good crew, and all of us knew, 1
We were the best greyhound in the pack. , 2
The Weather was rough, and the landluhbers gruff,
But nothing could hurt our pride.
We had a job to do, and we would see it through,
Come hell high water or red tide.

A familiar sight for all navigators
In the city of Pearl, we will take a whirl,
Its the first stop on our way.
With the hula girls, with the skirts that swirl,
We would while our time away.
Honolulu too, we are coming to you
And the sands of Waikiki.
Where the trade winds blow, and you never see snow
That's the port that appeals to me.

Then to the isle of Midway, for a very short stay
A fuel stop in qoony bird land.
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.
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.

To the lornd of gin-rick-shoy.

To Okinawa's shore we have been here before,
We anchored in Buckner Bay.
We had a high seas, and stronq chilly breeze,
Seventh Fleet was cast adrift that day.
We all had a brew, in village number two,
The marnasans had tacksan treat.
lt was a tar cry, from the time in '45,
When a typhoon wrecked the fleet.

Now its time we went up to Sasebo and spent,
A little of our dough.
With souvenirs galore, and a swab in each store
The crew was sure having a show.
We spent all we drew, and three paydays too,
But to many, this would be the last.
The Iapanese, they have a way to please,
They seem to make friends very fast.
To For-mo-so, We were ordered to go,
To steam on Tiawan patrol.
For days on end, we ran circles, but then
Peace, and good will was our goal.
Then our boilers blew, We were in a stew,
They said we couldn't steam, what a joke.
So back to Subic Bay, While some shouted "holay"
To get repairs, another "pig-in-a-poke".

Then We caught a birclfarrn, they say "the navy's riqht arm
To a tin can man this can't be,
, If itWasn't for us, who would they trust,
To pick her pilots out of the sea.
They must have thought us a wreck, to put oil on our cleck,
And man the ternpers ran hot.
But they qot all the blame, and boy what names,
- Then we cleaned up and back on the spot.

To the South Ching Seos, We soiled with egse,
On opergtion collecl "Pony Express".
Another routine potrol!! Thot story wors old,
It Wos our strength We were out to impress,
Then number 7 quit blowing, ond number 3 quit going
But there Wors no one to toke our plgce.
They coulcln't slow us down, We were "the greyhound
And still Wos leording the roce.
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.
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.

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.
"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!
