HALSEY, USN, and Anne Brewster HALSEY. He was appointed to the U.S. NAVAL Academy in 1900 and graduated in February 1904. After graduation. Admiral HALSEY served in many capacities ranging from Naval Attache to ship commands. Much of his early career during and subsequent to World War I was devoted to commanding destroyers. In 1935, at the age of 52, he won his wings and was designated a Naval Aviator. The succeeding years brought to the forefront of his time-tested command abilities and saw Admiral HALSEY commanding first the USS SARATOGA and later tin- South Pacific area where he doggedlv set about and succeeded in routing enemy forces from Guadalcanal and the Solomon Islands. In June 1944, Admiral HALSEY assumed command of the Third Fleet and was des- ignated commander of the Western Pacific Task Force. Beginning in August 1944, his forces left a trail of enemy ruin and destruction in Palaus, Philippine, Formosa (Tai- wan), Okinawa and the South China Sea, and decisivelv defeated enemy sea and air force operations in the Western Carolines and the Philippine Islands. In the final phases of the war in the Pacific, Admiral HALSEYS Third Fleet participated in the Okinawa Campaign, and later his fast carrier task forces proceeded northward and struck at Tokvo in July 1945. In November 1945, Admiral HALSEY relinquished command of the Third Fleet which had exemplified his slogan: " HIT HARD, HIT FAST, HIT OFTEN " . Fleet Admiral HALSEY retired from active duty in December 1946. Admiral HALSEY died in 1959 and was buried with lull military honors on 20 August in Arlington National Cemetery. Hull Halscv 11SS f¥ zfoetf, ' i¥c to i(t In 1959. tilt- United States Congress authorized construction of DLG-23, a LEAHY class destroyer. This ship, later named alter the illustrious and aggressive Fleet Admiral William F. (BULL) Halsev, would, through her successful service to her country, live up to the legacy of the man she was named for. On the 25th of September 1959, San Francisco Naval Shipyard was awarded the contract to build DLG-23, which was to be named in honor of Fleet Admiral Hake who had died th.u year. Work steadily progressed and on January 15. 1962, DLG-23 was christened " Halsey " , by two of FADM Halsey ' s granddaughters, Mrs. Spruance Denham and Miss Jane Halsev. with a third grand- daughter, Miss Ann Halsey, acting as Maid of Honor. On the third of February 1963, HALSEY ' s prospective Com- manding Officer, Captain Herbert II. Anderson, reported on board for duty. Finally, after three years, construction was completed on July 8, 1963 and HALSEY was commissioned on the 20th of July. At her commissioning, then Secretary of the Navy, the Honor- able Fred Korth, was the principle speaker, with Fleet Admiral Chester Nimit and Mr. William F. Halsev III also speaking. The day of the commissioning ceremonies, included an almost total eclipse of the sun. as if to underscore that this was no ordinary ship. HALSEY departed San Francisco on November 25, 1963 for ASW tests and acoustical noise survevs. Completing these tests, she arrived in her new homeport of San Diego, December II. 1963 and was honored with a " Welcome Aboard " ceremony, host- ed by the USS HAMMER (DD-718). HALSEY became Destroyer Squadron Seven ' s newest member and was placed in DESDIY 71, with the HAMNER, BUCK and POWELL. Shortly after joining the Fleet, HALSEY had occasion to prove her Anti-Air Warfare prowess when she acted as screen comman- der in a special Sea Power demonstration for the Secretan of the Navy. HALSEY participated in her first large scale Fleet exercise, UNION SQUARE, over a ten da period, from September 28, 1964 to October 6. The verv next dav, HALSEY saw her first Change of Command as Captain George W. Ringenberg relieved Captain Herbert H. Anderson. Three months after assuming Command. Captain Ringenberg took HALSEY and her crew and departed home and family for her first major deployment (WEST- PAC) in which she operated with the U.S. Nan ' s attack carrier forces off the coast of Vietnam. In addition, to duties as rescue destroyer and Anti-Submarine Warfare assignments, she employed her advanced Combat information Center (CIC) and endurance on station, to conduct AAW operations. For her ser- vice, HALSEY earned the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal. She returned home to San Diego in August of 1965. Shortly after returning from WestPac, Captain O W. Ringen- berg was relieved as Commanding Officer, bv Captain J.J. Le Bour- geois, in a ceremony held on September 10. Less than a year after returning from her last deployment. HALSEY departed on July 2, 1966 for what was to be very eventful and noteworthy second deployment. Arriving on station in the Gulf of Tonkin. HALSEY was assigned to the Southern Search and Rescue (SAR) station, off the coast of North Vietnam. The first of HALSEY ' s rescues came on the 18th of August when LCDR Demitrio Verich had to para- chute from his damaged F8C Crusader, just one and one quarter mile from the North Vietnam shore. Within three minutes, HALSEY ' s helo proceeded to the scene and despite being taken under fire from the shore, successfully hoisted the pilot and returned to the HALSEY. The next dav, a Vigilante RA5C was hit over Vietnam and crashed into the Gulf of Tonkin, where the HALSEY ' s helo picked up the pilot. Later, on August 28, an All! Skvraider took a hit and the pilot, CDR Gordon Smith, bailed out very close to shore. With a USAF Albatross decoying fire, HALSEY again made the rescue. On the fifth of October, the HALSEY experimentally refueled the USS COLLETT (DD-730), the first time anything like this had been done bv a LEAHY class destroyer. Eleven davs later, HALSEY received a message that there was a helo that had been badly shot up, was short of fuel and was not able to return to her ship. She homed in on HALSEY ' s TACAN, made an approach on HALSEY ' s flight deck, lost control and crashed into the sea. HALSEY ' s helo and motor whale boat were immediately dis- patched to the scene and succeeded in rescuing ten people from the helo. just before the helo capsized and sank. Eighteen days later, HALSEY picked up a distress signal from a downed F4C Phantom, dispatched her helo and picked up the Phantom ' s Pilot and Radar Intercept Officer before they even had a chance to light a distress flare. Right before she was to be relieved bv the USS REEVES (DLG- 24), on November 6. HALSEY had the greatest test of her capabil- ities. Captain Victor Vicarra, USAF, was forced to eject from his F105 deep over North Vietnam, near the Laotian border, FLALSEY immediately launched her helo and directed it to the scene as she proceeded down the coast at high speed to shorten the return flight of the helo. As nightfall approached, HALSEY ' S helo spotted the downed pilot ' s flare and picked up the pilot. The helo, low on fuel, raced back to the HALSEY and " COOPER ' S GRAY GHOST " landed on HALSEY ' s flight deck with a scant two minutes of fuel remaining. After five and a hall months of hard work, HALSEY returned to San Diego on the 21st of December, just in time to enjoy Christ- mas at home. During 1967. HALSEY was awarded her first Battle " E " and was also presented the ' Navy Unit Commendation for her actions dur- ing the WestPac of the previous year. On July 6, 1967, the HALSEY saw the Command change hands as Captain Vincent I.. Murtha relieved laptainJJ. LeBorgeois. Aftei spending all ol 1967 in the U.S., HALSEY once again departed lor WestPac on fanuary 2. 1968 in company with the L ' SS ENTERPRISE (CVN-65) and tin USS TRUXTON (DLGN- 35). While crossing the Pacific, the three ships encountered ven heav) seas, sometimes as high as 30 leet. which produced a tragic event. While walking along the signal bridge, ETR3 William W. Francis Jr.. was swept off his feet and over the side of the ship. Four hours of searching bv the three ships proved fruitless as Pettv Officer Francis was never seen to surface. To this day during rough sea and stormy weather, sailors have claimed to see the ghost ot Petty Officer Francis walking on the sea trying in vain to reach its bow and vanishing into the mist as he comes closer. During the deployment, HALSEY ' s actions on the SAR stations resulted in the recoverv of seven downed pilots. In addition to using her two helos for SAR operations, HALSEY recovered a spe- cial purpose aircraft from the water and later the same day, a " Jollv Green Giant " helo made an emergency landing on the fantail, with little margin for error. For her actions on the deployment, HALSEY earned the Meritorious Unit Commendation. On the 14th of Otober 1968, Captain Vincent L. Murtha com- pleted his tour of duty and was relieved by Captain Wvatt E. Harp- er, Jr. just over a year later on December 10, HALSEY saw anoth- er Change of Command ceremo- ny as Captain J. A. Hooper relieved Captain W.E. Harper Jr. March 2nd through the 10th of 1970. HALSEY participated in Readiness Operational Evalua- tion, with Vice Admiral Isaac Kidd.Jr. embarked. Later on that year, on the 22nd of October. HALSEY once again set sail for the Western Pacific, this time with the USS HAN- COCK (CVA-19). On the 15th of December 1970, HALSEY received a message telling of the sinking of a Repub- lic of Korea fern. HALSEY rushed to the area and became on scene commander, but no survivors or bodies were found. While in Subic Bay, Republic of the Philippines, HALSEY proudly painted on her second Battle " E " on the day of April 4, 1971. Eigh- teen days later, HALSEY pulled in to her homeport of San Diego. The rest of 1971, up until September 6, was spent readying the ship for her extensive overhaul and Anti-Air Warfare moderniza- tion that was to take place in Bath, Maine. Tuesday, September 7, 1971, HALSEY departed San Diego and began her 14,500 mile trek to her new homeport of Bath, Maine. After many port visits along the East and West Coasts of South America, as well as port visits along the Eastern United States. HALSEY moored at the yards of Bath Iron Works on October 27, 1971. A few days later on November 4, HALSEY was placed " OUT OF COMMISSION SPECIAL " for the upcoming modernization. Slightly over a year later, after much work and many changes, HALSEY was placed in commission and Captain Joseph D. Nolan assumed command in ceremonies on December 16, 1972. On January 5, 1973, HALSEY departed Bath, Maine, for sunny San Diego, California, arriving there on the 16th of February. Although the yard period was behind her. the HALSEY remained busy through Ma) 11, conducting main extensive tests of new weapons svstems and engineering plant. During the period, HALSEY became the first U.S. Navy Ship to use tin- new Combat Systems organizational concept, which divides the ship into five departments, Operations, Engineering, Supply, Navigation, and Combat Svstems. Two months into 1974, HALSEY once again departed San Diego for WestPac. During the cruise. HALSEY operated with the carriers USS ORISKANY (CVA-34), USS KITTY HAWK (CVA-63), USS RANGER (CVA-61 ) and USS CONSTELLATION (CVA-64). While in Subic Bay, the new Commander Cruiser Destroyer Force Seventh Fleet, Rear Admiral J. D. Watkins, paid HALSEY a visit just prior to getting underway for a well deserved port call in Hong Kong. HALSEY soon began her trip East for San Diego, arriving there seven months after she departed, September 26, 1974. On the 22nd of November 1974. the bunting was brought out and the crew put on their dress blues as Captain William F. McCaulev became HALSEY ' s new Com- manding Officer, relieving Cap- tain Joseph D. Nolan. Midway through 1975, on July 1 HALSEY was redesignated as a Cruiser, Guided Missile (CG) from her old designation as Destroyer, Leader Guided Missile (DLG). The rest of 1975, from Jul) 16 to December 21, was spent in the Western Pacific, operating with the USS ORISKANY (CVA- 34) and the USS HANCOCK (CV- 19). HALSEY received her third Bat- tle " E " on March 1976 at the end of a five day inspection by Commander Cruiser Destroyer Group Three (CCDG-3), RADM Briggs. HALSEY ' s next WestPac began November 22 of 1976 and ended May 13. 1977. During this deployment, HALSEY provided intercept control of all incoming Soviet aircraft, for all the carrier task force she was steaming with. Also during the cruise, HALSEY received her second consecutive Battle " E " and fourth such award since she joined the fleet. On March 18, 1977, Captain Stephen J. Hostettler relieved Captain W.F. McCauley while in Yokosuko, Japan. On August 15, 1977, HALSEY entered Long Beach Naval Ship- yard for a 13 month regular overhaul. During this overhaul. HALSEY traded in her three inch fiftv AA guns for the Harpoon Missile System, which greatlv increased her surface warfare capa- bilities. Ma) 19. 1979. Captain Richard R. Tarbuck became HALSEY ' s tenth Commanding Officer as he relieved Captain Stephen J. Hostettler. Four months later. Captain Tarbuck took HALSEY on her eighth major deployment. During that deployment, HALSEY assumed the duties as FORCE ANTI-AIR COMMANDER during Iranian Contingency Operations. Late in March of 1980. HALSEY returned to San Diego after spending the holidays away from fam- ily and friends. A year later, on April 1, HALSEY departed for WestPac in com- pany with the KITTY HAWK battle group. About one month after departing San Diego, Captain Richard Tarbuck handed over the reigns of HALSEY to Captain Richard L. Wvatt, in ceremonies m Subic Bay on the 12th of May. Less than a week later, the HALSEY rescued 24 Vietnamese refugees who had been at sea for ten davs, seeking their freedom. The 23rd of November HALSEY returned from WestPac after traveling over 80.000 miles in just under seven months. February 6, 1982 HALSEY and the KITTY HAWK were under- way again, but this time for READIEX 82-2, in which HALSEY acted as Force Anti-Air Warfare Commander. Two months and three davs later. HALSEY was in port Long Beach Naval Shipyard for a baseline overhaul, in which she received an update to her Terrier Missle System, the Phalanx Close in Weapon System (CIWS). Super Rocket Blown Chaff Launchers, the AN SLQ-32 electronic warfare equipment and a new sonar. On the 27th of May 1983, Captain Paul D. Moses relieved Cap- tain L. Wyatt as Commanding Officer, USS HALSEY. Captain Moses guided HALSEY through her last month of baseline over- haul and on the 23rd of June, HALSEY departed for San Diego. March 16. 1984. HALSEY departed for the WESTPAC that even ' sailor dreams about, but few have the money for. Between HALSEY ' s departure and her return from WestPac on October 2, 1984. Halsev hit 17 ports. Her longest unbroken underway period was 20 davs. HALSEY spent the next 26 months close to home, during that time Captain Dennis R. Conley became HALSEY ' s new Com- manding Officer on August 29, 1985. On the 5th of (anuarv 19S7. Captain ( oiilev led HALSEY out past Point Loma for the last time for the next six months as HALSEY joined up with USS KITTY HAWK and ten other ships to form Battle Croup Bravo. Battle Croup Bravo headed west, which is the general direction the battle group staved as they sailed around ' the World. The USS NIMITZ (CVN-68) joined the Battle Croup in the Mediterranean and upon return to San Diego, HALSEY was chosen to escort the NIMITZ (CVN-68) in a day early, because oi her superior performance on the cruise. HALSEY later was awarded the Meritorious Unit Commendation for her outstanding performance on the World ( Iruise. Eight davs after the start of 1988, Captain D. Pacek became HALSEY ' s fourteenth Commanding Officer as he relieved Cap- tain Dennis R. Conlev. Scarcely ten months after returning home from her World Cruise, HALSEY saw herself underway for her 12th major deploy- ment, this time to the Arabian (Persian) Gulf, led by Captain Pacek, a veteran of the Gulf. HALSEY ' s outstanding abilities in sorting out the potentially hostile air threats in the Gulfs busy air- space, earned her a superb reputation in the field oi AAW and her abilities to steam long periods ol time with little or no outside help proved that her Engineering department could always be depended on. On the 20th of July, While on station in the Arabian Gulf, the HALSEY celebrated the 25th year of service to her country. HALSEY spent 1990 receiving Combat Systems New Threat Upgrade (NTU) at Continential Maritime Shipyard in San Diego. The NTU improvements are composed of improved detection subsystem (centered around the new SPS-48E 3-D air-search radar), an upgrade engagement subsystem (Weapon Direction System), and a vastly improved computer hardware software package integrated in the Combat Direction System (CDS). With NTU, HALSEY will be able to successfully counter any potential air or surface threat well into the next century. The ship was awarded the Commander Naval Surface Force Pacific Battle Efficient v award for the cycle ending 30 June 1989 and proudlv displays the following awards: Missle Gold " E " - ninth consecutive award; CIC Gold " E " - seventh consecutive; Electronic Warfare " E " - fourth consecutive; Engineering Gold " F. " - seventh consecutive; Damage Control " DC " - fourth consecutive; and two consecutive communications green " C " awards. On 8 November. 1991 the HALSEY left for vet another West- Pac. Their mission was to patrol the Persian Gulf, this time the) were cautious since the area was still considered a war one due to the Gulf War. Although equipped with the most advanced weapons and svs- tems. it is the professionalism of the twenty-seven officers and four hundred men that make the " BULL " a true fighting ship. The crew will ensure that the spirit and energy of the ship ' s famous namesake remains alive into the 21st century. HALSEY Hismn wimtmmwihw (Office Toafttain fieotae iM. eut III Captain George A.

Per- sonnel from these work centers are responsible for maintaining and repairing many vital systems onboard the HALSEY. Some of these systems, such as fire- main and plumbing lines, are vital to evervdav shipboard life and usually keep the Hull Technicians very busv. The Damage Controlman are responsible for maintaining the firefighting equipment, firefighting systems and training the ships crew on the fire-fighting tactics. The Machinerv Repairmen are responsi- ble for making emergency repairs and parts to the ships many engineering sys- tems that cannot be obtained while at sea.

On October 6, 1779, she raided Jamaica and took aboard 826 pounds of flour and 68,300 gal- lons of rum. She reached the Azores on 1 2 November, and provisioned with 500 pounds of beef and 64,300 gallons of fine Portuguese wine. Sailing for England on 18 November, she encountered 12 British merchant men, sinking them and salvaging only their rum. On 27 January 1780, she made a night raid on the Firth of Clyde, capturing a whiskey distillery ' and transferring 40,000 gallons aboard by dawn. On 20 February 1780, she arrived back in Boston with: no powder, no shot, no flour, no pork, no beer, no poultry, no whiskey, no wine, no rum — and with 48,600 gallons of stagnant water!

PHILIPPINES I Icy. really, I ' m a nice guy. Dining the cruise Halsey crewmembers were almost constantly involved in some sort of sports or physical training. Underway, steel beach volleyball, skeet. running, rowing, weight lifting, and biking were the favorites. In port, the traditional team sports got a workout as Halsey football. Softball, and basketball teams took on various teams from other senices and host nations. Volley- ball and running remained popular in port, as did swimming and hiking (sightseeing). Tournaments were held in spades, checkers, and arm wrestling. Cards, chess, checkers, Gamebovs, and Nintendo were great sources of relaxation. DC Olympics provided a day of fun for all as DC knowledge and skill were demonstrated in various DC events. The day con- cluded with a KBUL televised special. " DCJeopardy " . The show, informative at times, proved to be quite hilarious and was a per- fect end to a great day.
