DAVIS, lll Assistant First Lieutenant Main Propulsion Assistant l2l A cup of strong coffee, a hearty sandwich and the warmth of a foul weather jacket all prime the sleepy O4-08 Officer of the Deck for his chilly hours on the bridge. Careful reading of the captain's night orders under the chart table's dim red light provides the relieving OOD with his basic orders before stepping out on the darkened bridge to adjust his eyes to the night. After memorizing the cruising information and viewing carefully the ship formation both visually and by radar, the exchange of "I relieve you, sir" and "I stand relieved" sends the weary OOD below and leaves the new OOD charged with the safety and proper operation of the HAMNER for the next four hours, the four hours that will unfold, with the break of dawn, the events of a new day. How well the HAMNER will do in the day's operations depends heavily on the foresight and preparations of this OOD and those who follow. Though it seems that we are always on the bridge while underway, watch standing is only one of the many and varied duties of the officers of the HAMNER. Trained specifically for administraton and more gener- ally in all the phases of HAMNER operations, each officer can expect his three years aboard to support a wide variance in duties assigned. He may be assigned to the gunnery department for one year, the engineering department the next and the last year may find him in operations. ln each job as either department head or division officer he is the man who handles the administration, coordinates the efforts of his men for most effective maintenance and training, and compromises the differ- ences between them and the other sections of the ship. Gathering around the wardroom table, the officers are frequently in conference as the captain's policies are dictated, the overall training schedules for the ship are formulated, conflicting personnel and materials of the divisions and departments are compromised or a new "volunteer" is selected for the position of wardroom mess treasurer. On the light side of life, 'the HAMNER's wardroom is one of the happiest in the Fleet. There is no contesting the superiority of the food served during the meal hours or available at any hour for snacks, and we all carry about ten extra pounds in attestment to this fact. Most of the wardroom officers prefer to go ashore together, sometimes in small groups and sometimes enforce. The jolliest times for everybody are those in which nine to ten of us gather in the club for a few rounds, with the dice deciding who pays. There have been evenings when the entire group, after going separate ways earlier, have gathered in the wardroom for a boisterous celebration to cap a good liberty. In Hong Kong we set all kinds of records for going broke, with most officers buying three times over their previously set limits. Most of us in the HAMNER's wardroom are reserve officers determined to give the Navy and our country three excellent years of service before returning to civilian ranks. Serving aboard the HAMNER provides us an excellent background in leadership and administration which will be invaluable in our future professions. The regular officers find the rugged three years aboard the HAMNER the best experience they can gain toward a well rounded ,naval career. Both types of officers know the HAMNER is their ship and their trust for the three-year tour of duty, and each officer strives to take with him from the HAMNER, when his tour is done, the satisfaction of a job "WELL DONE." li. :L "3-', 2 If H' - ' ,L ,I . semi'-h' .' , fX"'-kQ'x,'-lx'sH7 -'.'Q?'-fi-YQRS.-Wxx.s Fffiuli nf! ii i -hi F--- :N ' 'a.,x:Qw-xs-Q-v'1fv:'9"f-'f0"2' f"'f'i 'I A 'ef 1.

RMC EGNOSKI HMC JONES, MMC KIMMEY, csc iosEPHsoN, atc RAMsEY, Frc THE CHIEF P E T T Y BENNER, MMC BELL, BTC COURTNEY, BTC OFFICERS Once the sailor has commenced a second tour with the Navy and sews on that first rating badge, his primary aim is to attain the position of Chief Petty Officer as soon as possible. ln some of the open rates this goal can be realized in a few short years, but in other rates where the supply greatly overbalances demand, this achievement may be the final attainment of a full twenty years of service. Whatever be the case, stepping into chief's quarters and exchanging the dungarees for the khaki brings the enlisted men into a new world, one of increased respon- sibilities and of highly anticipated privileges. Down through history the Chief Petty Officer or the Senior Petty Officer has been known as the "Backbone of the Navy." Having absorbed a vast practical knowledge of his specific technical field, the chief or leading petty officer is the basic leader of the Navy's working men. The Chief Petty Officer does not relay orders from his officers to his men, but instead he receives his basic orders from his division officer, analyzes them thoroughly for complete understanding, formulates his own orders and issues them with a positive attitude that leaves the men no doubt as to who is boss! The ability, attitude and temperament displayed by the chief in issuing his orders, supervising the progress and inspecting the results are the governing factors controlling the attitude toward and the energy put forth by his men to accomplish any job. Make no mistake about it, the men work for the chief, and woe be it to the man who crosses his chief. Every request chit submitted, for leave, early liberty, standby, special pay, etc., must go through the chief with his veto virtually assuring negative response further up the chain of command. I-,-A, ,A ,v V ., . . . -- Not Pictured CHALLINOR, QMC He is the man who assigns the good duties and the bad, who administers the training and decides when the individual is ready for advancement and in whose "pocket" the coveted liberty cards are kept, "lost" some- times for days when the chief is angry. "Tread lightly and carefully while entering chief's quarters, lad, for the chiefs do not like the privacy of their quarters violated without good cause." Chief's quarters, a most secluded area aboard the HAMNER,.is one of the well deserved rewards accompanying the position of Chief Petty Officer in recognition of their responsibilities and highly technical skills. The chiefs here enjoy, away from the bustling activities of the crew, the relative privacy of their own mess, recreation area, berthlng compartment, pantry and head. For the chiefs, there is no waiting in the chow line for an unselected portion of the meal to be placed on a tray. Instead, the chiefs are served their meals, the choice of that offered in the mess hall, on plates in the quiet atmosphere of their quarters, and each knows that if he should miss a meal or not particularly feel like eating, there is always food in the pantry icebox to satisfy his offuhours appetite. After having made 0600 reveille for many years, the privilege of sleeping in till 0700 is taken with so much enjoyment that occa- sionally a chief may even miss quarters. Yes, the chiefs getfirsticrack at the movies coming aboard and of the new magazines received in the mails, and no man, who has time in the Navy, will ever contest the chiefs for these privileges. For he knows that some day, some how, he'll make Chief Petty Officer, and then those privileges will be his.
