THANKSGIVING DAY 1968 Captain Barnhart ' s first mission as Commanding Officer of the JOUETT was an unexpected one. On the day following the change of command, the minesweeper USS ACME, a thousand miles from San Diego, reported a crewman dangerously ill and in need of immediate evacuation. Commander First Fleet chose JOUETT to do the job. The crewmembers were recalled from their Thanksgiving dinners, and two and a half hours after the orders reached the ship, JOUETT was underway. JOUETT proceeded westward at 27 knots throughout the night and following morning. A helicopter, hurriedly flown aboard as the ship left California, was launched when JOUETT was 135 miles from the minesweeper.

He was brought ashore late next night, and recovered successfully. 13
