At the beginning of my tour the DUXBURYBAYwas no more than a receiving ship for personnel coming for brief periods and others departing for other duty. You, who be- came the permanent crew for our Persian Gulf duty, have every right to be proud of your work. The Operational Readiness Inspection, cruise to the Gulf, and the carrying of desparately needed supplies to Ceylon are testimonials to you.
