One definition of a warship is "a mobile
seagoing platform designed for the delivery
of its weapons". FARRAGUT has probably
the most versatile weapons systems ever put
on one warship. With our Terrier missiles,
our gun batteries, and our Anti-Submarine War-
fare weapons, we can take on any foe, Over,
on, or under the seas. The men who man these
systems, which in a sense are the ship's rea-
son tor being, are the men of the Weapons De-
partment: the Missile Technicians, Sonarmen,
Gunner's Mates, Boatswain's Mates and Fire

The two divisions which make up the Ope-
rations Department in FARRAGUT are the "eyes
and ears" of the ship. The Ol Division is made
up ot Radarmen, who gather and display immediate,
vital information from their radar scopes and voice
radio circuits and pass it an to internal and ex-
ternal stations for action, and the Electronics
Technicians, who provide continuing electronic
trouble-shooting and repair service. The OC Di-
vision encompasses radiomen and Hospital Corps-
men. Services provided include the operation of
a highly complex, busy and powerful radio station,
and provision of expert medical attention, which
aides in keeping the crew in good health.

To provide main propulsion power for the ship
is the primary mission ot the Engineers in FAR-
RAGUT. This is, however, in addition to ser-
vices such as hot water, heating, air condition-
ing, making fresh water, electrical power, and
machinery and hull repair- It is the largest de-
partment in the ship and is divided into B,M,
and R Divisions. Their respective functions are
to provide from the boilers high pressure steam
for power, operate and maintain the main engines
and auxiliary equipment, and to provide elec-
tricity, interior communications and general re-
pair services tothe ship.

CAPTAIN J. T. BLAND III
cammzmdvr destrayer squadron eight
Within days after EARRAGUT's return from her Shakedown cruise Captain A.F. Johnson, then
Commander, Destroyer Squadron EIGHT, shifted his flag from USS KENNETH D. BAILEY CDD
7I3j and broke it in this new TERRIER-armed addition to his squadron.
Just prior to our SIXTH FLEET deployment Captain Johnson was relieved by Captain John E.
Wicks, Jr., who rode FARRAGUT for lust over 3 months when a sudden illness forced him to leave
his command in early October. Captain HJ, Ereckson, Destroyer Division IW commander, immedi-
ately assumed temporary duties as COMDESRON 8 until his relief by Captain J,T, Bland lll on IO
November in Palermo Bay.
Captain Bland, our present squadron commander, is a native of Burgaw, North Carolina, and was
graduated from the Naval Academy in l938, a classmate of Captain Wicks. I-lis varied career indi-
cates that he is no stranger to destroyers, his first command having been in l9L11l. CGDTGIFI Bland
is married to the former Miss Elaine Spendor of Roanoke, Indiana. They now make their home in
Arlington, Virginia, with their three children, John, Barbara, and Thomas.

ln addition to FARRAGUT, Destroyer Squadron
EIGHT consists ot eight other ships: one more
guided missile trigate, and seven radar picket
destroyers. As a squadron these ships are de-
signed to produce the maximum in detection capa-
bility against both aircraft and submarines, as
well as to provide a platform for the most ad-
vanced weapons systems available with which to
attack them. The task ot the squadron staff is to
assist their Commodore in giving his ships the
strategic, tactical, logistic, and administrative
coordination necessary to make them a smooth
fighting team, at the same time standing ready to
provide individual technical, medical, and even
spiritual assistance to both the ships and their

JFK looks Us over
On T11 April l962, FARRAGUT was one to two
Dl.G's participating in a Weapons Demonstration
off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, for a party of
Government officials numbering about 160. ln-
cluded were President KENNEDY, Vice l3T95ld9l'TT V
Johnson, Foreign Ambassadors, Members of Con-
gress and Press representatives. The entire
Weapons Demonstration Force was composed of
more than 48 ships and was commanded by Co-
mmander-in-Chief, U.S. Atlantic Fleet.
The morning began with all the ships steaming
in column in two lines. The President was in the
Northampton CCL lj, passing in review between
lines, and receiving full honors. The President
was then transferred to the ENTERPRISE, where
he and his party witnessed an ASW demonstration,
a special missile firing by DEWEY, and G NGvGl
air firepower demonstration. The President then
transferred to Onslow Beach, N.C., to witness
an amphibious landing by l5,000 Marines.
All in all, the Weapons Demonstration Force
represented an assemblage of Naval firepower
almost unprecendented in History. It presented a
striking portrayal of the significance of seapower
to the defense of the United States

Shipyard on lO December 1960 EARRAGUT s commissioning date However he went on to continue his
long chain of destroyer commands by assumzng the reins of Destroyer Division 262 For CDR l-lerron no
strnanger to destroyer commands himself this day put him in charge of a still new ship fresh from her
Shakedown cruise with the oblective of taking FARRAGUT to sea and making a name for her through

On l6 May FARRAGUT was underway from
MayporT heading souTh Toward The Caribbean for
one of The mosT evenTful cruises in her hisTory.
The obiecTive of The cruise was To conducT a
series of missile firings aT The RoosevelT Roads,
PuerTo Rico, Missile range. In .befween Tirings
FARRAGUT spenT liberTy Time in: San Juan,
PuerTo Rico's beauTiful seaporT capiTol, and ST.
Thomas in The Virgin lsland. The visiTing in San
Juan included an Armed Forces Day week-end
open house on lf? To 20 May. l-lowever, all of The
Firing and visiTing of The cruise was To be over-
shadowed by The evenTs on The following page.
While The world held iT's breath,
FARRAGUT held her course.
FARRAGUT streaks To splash area
Perhaps no single incidenT in LOOKING AFT more dramaTically emphasizes The "Can Do" spiriT of
FARRAGUT Than our role in The ScoTT CarpenTer space orbiT recovery in May, l962. Underway ThaT hisTor-
ical morning from San Juan, l3uerTo Rico, To conducT a shore bombardmem' exercise and Then To proceed
home To MayporT, iT was in The role of inTeresTed Navy men and proud ciTizens ThaT we lisrened To The news
gcgounr of CARPENTERJS apparenTly Tlawless Mercury space shoT.
l3uT in The space age The line separaTing success from failure is measured in micro-seconds. Suddenly
we received The word: Aurora 7 overshoT The recovery force' exacT whereabouTs unknownl As apprehension
mounTed ThroughouT The world Tor The asTronauT s saTeTy orders reached FARRAGUT To break OTT from our
assigned mission and Take parT in The search and recovery.
DespiTe The TacT ThaT FARRAGUT was noT a member OT The designaTed recovery group her crew knew
exacTly whaT To do. The repair gang improvisea a spanning bar Tor The boaT daviTs which could liTT Aurora
7 aboard should iT be necessary. The Engineering DeparTmenT broughT The sTeam planr up To Tull power
while Topside The crew ioined in clearing The TanTail Tor helicopTer operaTions.
AT maximum speed The ship Turned Towards The probable splash area hours away and all hands sTrained
To be The TirsT To spoT The missing capsule-so eager ThaT The hours were ThoughT of as minuTes The miles
expressed as yards. r
Too laTe-by 20 minuTes! NoT even one of The Navy s TasTesT ships can ouTrun a ieT helicopTer -which
liTTed LCDR CarpenTer inTo The air and Took him To saTeTy aboard a carrier.
FARRAGUT was The TirsT ship on The scene recovering all The paramedic gear and The asTronauT s per-
sonal equipmenT and checking The TloTaTion aTTachmenTs of The capsule unTil a specially rigged recovery
ship arrived in The area.
Men OT The FARRAGUT can always look aTT wiTh pride when This performance is called To mind. ln True
desTroyer fashion we were ready.

From3 TO TO OcTober, FARRAGUT was
given one of The mosT inTeresTing and un-
usual missions of iTs shorT Two-year
hisTory: an eighT-day operaTing assignmem'
in The Black Sea. In recenT years Tew
UniTed STaTes or NATO ships have had
such an opporTuniTy. NauTic'al access To
The Black Sea is gained by only one rouTe,
The narrow and picTuresque Turkish STraiTs,
consisTing Cfrom wesT To easTj of The
Dardanelles, The Sea of Marmara, and The
Bosphorus. The Bosphorus, much The

only a quarTer-mile wide. The ancienT and

ing minareTs and mosques, guards The
wesTern enTrance To The Bosphorus, facing
The Sea of Marmara. The Three uniTs of The
Turkish STraiTs Torm one of The world's

They do Europe from Asia. They have been
a source of TricTion beTween Turkey and
Russia Tor cenTuries. During our brief
period in The Black Sea FARRAGUT Tre-
quently encounTered Russian merchanT and
naval ships, and made sTops aT Two small
Turkish porTs, Eregli and Trabzon.

The dual mission of The TasT-moving SIXTH l:leeT is
The maintenance of a constant sTaTe of battle readi-

standing among our European friends ashore. In order
To carry ouT The TirsT half of This mission, ships musT
' have The capabiliTy of remaining aT sea Tor indeTiniTe
periods of Time wiThouT The beneTiT of shore bases.
Retueling at sea, a Technique developed during WW ll,
N is one of The major evoluTions ThaT gives The fleet iTs
indeTiniTe mobiliTy. IT is a complex, inherenTly danger-
ous operaTion, requiring close coordinaTion beTvveen
The bridge, deck force, and engineers.
From The bridge, The rudder and main engines are
1 conTrolled To bring The "ThirsTy" ship alongside The ,
,Q oiler. The deck force is responsible Tor receiving and l

FARRAGUTS second visit U7-28
Octoberl to Naples was tor a briet up-
keep period alongside a destroyer tender.
Naples as a city dates back to about
600 BLU when Greek colonists settled
there. They named it Nespolio, or New
City, To contrast with an earlier settle-
ment namecl Pabopoleo, or Old City.
Various ancient sites in the vicinity
such as Pompeii, remain attractions to
both tourists and archaeologists. From
the harbor, there is frequent boat service
to the fabulous Isles ot Capri, and tours
may also be taken to the top of Mt.
Vesuvious. Modern Naples is a large
city with a gaiety typical of southern

We visited Gaeta at a disadvantageous
time. Our liberty here, 29 to 30 October
was at the height of the Cuban crisis.
This, combined with extremely rough
boating weather, meant few had a chance
to visit the town. Those who did found

...Time out for culture...
This city was our first port ot call U3 to ill
Octoberj after the Black Sea visit, and the con-
trast between the sleepy, small Turkish cities
and huge, bustling Athens and Piraeus was great.
These cities QPiraeus is Athens' portj have a
combined population of about l,500,00. Athens
was the center and capitol of much ot what was
ancient and Greek. As such, it was the object ot
many tours and picture taking expeditions by our
crew. Probably the most sought after attraction for
us, as tor countless thousands of tourists, was
the Acropolis and its Parthenon. This is truly the
monument of the ages. Other local tourist attract-
ions, which are excavated examples of antiquity,
are Corinth and Mycenae. A second visit to Athens
was mode from 24 to 28 November.

...Good grief, more Naples!...i
FARPAGUT spent The Christmas and New
Year's holiday season in Naples. There wasn't
any snow or Santa Claus, but the holiday spirit
was wonderful, with several gaily decorated
christmas trees aboard and an orphans party
ashore. For some of The more venturesome
sailors, Naples was the starting point for tours
or excursions to surrounding areas. Formal
tours were conducted to Rome, Northern Italy,
Munich, Germany. Sai lors staying in Town, how-
ever, soon learned to their delight that many
parts of Naples itself are beautiful, and well

with competitive exercises, including a very

AGUT pulled into Genoa, Italy, the birthplace
of Christopher Columbus, for 9 days ot lib-
erty. Here is Italy's largest port, and a view
ot its excellent bowl-shaped harbor tells you
part of the reason why. Ot equal importance
to its stature is the easy access which it ott-
ers to the Po River Valley and its products.
The city itself separates two segments ot the
Italian Riviera, and has much of the tlavor of
an Americian metropolis. It offers a time cross
section of city lite, including restaurants,
l-Iotels, and shops.

Replenishment as a specific term, or operation,
includes the providing ot any item not ordinarily
supplied by an oiler Qretuelingj or an ammunition
ship ihandled during rearmingl Underway re-
plenishment is particularly vital in the Mediterra-
nean since the Sixth Fleet operates in the unique
status ot having no-actual shore bases and must
rely on this technique almost exclusively to pro-
vision its ships. There are several types ot spe-
cial surface vessels involved in a replenishment.
A stores ship issues all sorts of consumable lit
inediblel and non-consumable merchandise. These
supplies may be transferred by rigs, or by the new-
est method, helicopter transter. Not to be excluded
is the refrigerator ship, which provides the sailor's
most constant companion, food. The normal inter-
val between maior replenishments is one month.
To handle such a vast amount ot stores, the work
ot all hands is required until the last crate is

Here is another of the ancient and beautiful
Mediterranean cities. FARRAGUT entered Bar-
celona with lO other Sixth Fleet Ships on 4 Feb-
ruary aftera long week of Task Force operations.
Barcelona, founded by the Carthaginians in 250
B,C., has been since the Middle Ages one of the
world's great ports. Today the city is typically
European, with most of its narrow, winding
streets. But there are the modern additions every-
where evident-boulevard s, factories, and the tall
steeltowers standing like sentries in the harbor.
An interesting comparison afforded close by
was the replica of the frail Santa Maria, Chris-
topher Columbus' flagship. For it is from this
port, only aboutfive centuries ago, that Columbus
sailed on his voyages of discovery.

Port Mahon was our last, and perhaps favor-
ite, Mediterranean liberty port. There is good
reason for the esteem in which this port is held.
Admiral FARR!-XGUT'sfather was born here, and
the common name evokes common ties. The
people on this small Balearic Island evidently
enjoyed our visit as much as we did, if enjoy-
ment can be iudged by the hundreds ot Menorcans
who came aboard FARRAGUT during two days
of general visiting.

February 20 brought FARRAGUT back to the
sheltered Pollensa Bay, Mallorca, where the Sixth
Fleet tour at duty had started some six and a half
months earlier. Waiting for us were our reliefs,
including literally some of the largest and most
modern ships in the world. But despite their size
and impressive credentials, they all seemed to
show a slight trace of green to our already sea-
soned eyes. FARRAGUT took part in a fourway,
ioint relief along with her sister ship USS Luce
CDLG-73 relieving USS Dahlgren CDLG-l2l and
USS Bainbridge CDLGN-251. At l645 the word was
passed, "There will be a ship leaving for Mayport
in l5 minutes." At l7OO the ship was underway,
and with the sounds of Billy Rose's "The Strip-

we left Pollensa Bay in our wake.

iT's funny how The Time did fly.
IT seems ThaT only yesTerday,
iT was good-bye we had To say.
We lefT wives and loves behind,
wiTh loneliness To fill our minds.
BUT Then There- couldn'T help buf be,
ThaT Touch of mild anxiefy.
For soon we'd be in easy reach,
of France's Riviera beach.
And we had many days of fun,
relaxing in The sand and sun.
Then we Traveled o'er The sea,
To The shores of Napoli.
And we found boTh resT and peace,
wiThin The bounds of ancienf Greece.
Thru l-lellesponT and Marmara Sea,
we sTeamed on Toward our desTiny.
We passed The mystic lsfanbul,
and The land which sulTans rule.
In The Black Sea, while underway,
The Russians wafched us nighT and day
In porT, The proud l::uT simple ways,
of Turkish people filled our days.
Thanksgiving was a special day,
To us in very many ways.
For our minds could resT aT peace,
The Cuban crisis came To cease.
We spenT The ChrisTmas holiday,
anchored ouT in Naples bay.
There was food and music fine,
if on board you chose To dine.
IT was hard for us To see,
if we were careless New Years E
For we mighT well be found,

Genoa being large in size,
proved a shoppers paradise.
And we much TribuTe paid,
To San Remo's greaT parade.

And from There we venTured on,
To our home i-n PorT Mahon.
BUT iT wasn'T all for play,
we worked hard To earn our pay.
And our days upon The sea,
ouTnumbered Those of liberTy.
We had inspecTions, Two or Three,
and operaTions on The sea.

We had duTy daddies and Tour guides
and oThers painTing o're The sides
Some had waTches and oThers worked
buT few of us our duTies shirked.
For all iT was a happy day,
when we lefT Pollensa Bay.
WiTh duTy done and problems gone,
we were sailing homeward on.
We sTeamed ouT GibralTar's gaTe,
on To home and Those who waiT.
And as we crossed The ocean blue,
iT seemed our dreams were coming True
Here we are aT home once more,
back in The land ThaT we adore.
And all Those monThs on land and sea
will remain forever, a memory.
