Constructed by the San Francisco Naval Shipyard, the keel was laid on August 25, 1960 and she was christened January 15, 1962 by two of the Admiral ' s granddaughters. USS HALSEY was commissioned on July 20, 19 3 and was then assigned operations within the Pacific Fleet. The guided missile cruiser is a multi-purpose ship developed especially to meet the needs of modern naval warfare. Designed to operate with a carrier battle group, the ship ' s primary mission is to conduct fleet anti- air warfare defense. USS HALSEY is equipped with the newest Terrier Missile System in the fleet and is capable of launching and controlling a large number of Standard (SM-2) missiles simultaneously. Also installed to provide a close-in self defense capability is the Close- in-Weapons-System (CIWS), a rapid firing gatling type guns located on both sides of the ship. With the latest electronic warfare equipment, and Harpoon Missile System installed, USS HALSEY is ready to engage surface targets at Long range. The ASROC anti-submarine rocket launcher and ship launched torpedoes provide the assets needed to engage submarines as well. Although equipped with the most modern weapon systems, it is the pride and professionalism of her four hundred and seventeen total officers and crew members which make USS HALSEY, ' The Cruiser ' , in the Pacific Fleet. TUB COMMANDING OFFICER 4TF.D STATES SHIP UALSEY (CG 23) Officers and Men of the Halsey Team During our recent deployment your performance, both indi- vidual and collectively, was absolutely magnificent. When we departed San Diego in early January we had visions of circum- navigating the globe. As it turned out we accomplished that, but so very much more as well. We executed our operational taskings as true professionals in outstanding fashion, despite negligible time in port for maintenance and virtually no out- side industrial support. The HALSEY Team demonstrated the true meaning of self-sufficiency. During those brief but enjoy- able port visits, you were ambassadors of good will and very favorably impressed our foreign hosts. In short, you did it right and Fleet Admiral Bull Halsey would be quite proud of you. As you glance through this cruisebook, may you remember the pride, professionalism, personal excellence, and teamwork that made our around the World Cruise so successful. As all seafaring men know, we could not accomplish our mission without our wives and families at home keeping our households in order and awaiting our return. Therefore, it is most appropriate and with heartfelt thanks that we dedicate this cruisebc he HALSEY Family. e. ' k.Gvj. n D. R. CONLEY Captain, U.S. Navy COMMANDING OFFICER ( PT 0. R.
