ATTHESHIPYARD, WHITSON AND WEASMA WERE SPENDING THEIR DAYS RUNNING BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN THE SHIP, VARIOUS SHOPS , AND OUR TEMPO- RARY HEADQUARTERS OF CHIEF TROUT. ATTENDING VARIOUS SCHOOLS IN SAN DIEGO. THINGS SEEMED PRETTY WELL ORGANIZED UNTIL THE ENTIRE CREW AS- SEMBLED IN BREMERTON AND MOVED A- BOARD, ALL HANDS SPENT BUSY DAYS TRYING TO RUN DOWN MISSING ITEMS AND TYING UP LOOSE ENDS IN PREPARATION FOR OUR PRELIMINARY ACCEPTANCE AND BUILDINGS TRIALS , W ITH GREAT EMPHASIS BEING PLACED UPON NAVIGATION . THE FIRST COUPLE OF DAYS IN PUGET SOUND WERE QUITE TRYING AND INCLUDED AN " O ' ROARK " CALLING CONTEST IN WHICH NOONE VOLUNTEERED , BUT MANY CONTESTANTS WERE ENTERED. IT LOOKS LIKE GREEN WAS THE WINNER HANDS DOWN, IT WAS ABOUT TH I S T I M E THAT WE LOST FRIEDENSTAB FOR A SHORT STINT IN THE HOSPI- TABLE. HE DIDN ' T DO SO BADLY FOR HIMSELF, THOUGH WINNING 800 DOLLARS IN A PU2ZEL CONTEST, THfc. CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS WERE UNEVENTFUL , AND TH E SUCC EEDING DAYS WERE FILLED WITH PREPARA- TION FOR SAN DIEGO AND OUR SHAKEDOWN CRUISE, THE MOST EXCITING AND OUR SHAKEDOWN TRAINING CRUISE. THE MOST EXCITING EVOLUTION IN SAN DIEGO WAS THE UNANNOUNCED MERCY TRIP SOUTH WHICH LEFT A FEW OF US ON THE BEACH WITHOUT TOOTHBRUSH OR RAZOR, IT WAS A HECTIC TWO DAYS WITH THE FIRST DAY BEINGSPENTTRYING TO GET THEM OUT, I THINK THE SCHOOL STAFF WAS MORE CONFUSED THAN WE WERE, IT WILL PROBABLY BE THE ONLY TIME THAT OUR ASSISTANT DIVISION OFFICER, MR. RUSH , WILL EVER BE ABLE TO MUSTER IN WALKING SHORTS WITH A GOLF CART , AFTER IT V AS OVER WE WERE ALL CONVINCED THAT LIFE ABOARD SHIP THOSE TWO DAYS WOULDN ' T HAVE BEEN TOO BAD. ON THE 14 OF FEBRUARY WE WERE UNDERWAY FOR OUR SHAKEDOWN CRUISE MINUS FRIEDENSTAB WHOM WE HAD TO LEAVE BEHIND, WE WELCOMED ABOARD CHIEF THURBER UPON OUR ARRIVAL IN PEARL, THUS INCREASING OUR NUMBER TO 22. THAT IT REALLY WAS A SHAKEDOWN WAS BEYOND DOUBT WHEN WE STARTED TO GET UNDERWAY POR LOCAL OPERATIONS IN PEARL. THE SHAKING WAS MOST APPARENT IN THE AFTER END OF THE SHIP. SOME OF US WERE A LITTLE DISSOLUSIONED TRYING TO SEE THE SOUTH PACIFIC FROM THE BOTTOM OF DRY-DOCK . BUT WE MADE UP FOR IT BY ATTENDING POLLYWOG OR SHELL BACK MEETINGS. POLLYWOG DAY WAS A BIG SUCCESS AS MOST SHELLBACKS WERE SOUNDLY DRENCHED BY THE FIREHOSES. INTIATION DAY SAW THE RADAR GANG REPRESENTED BY SEVERAL " SPECIAL CASES. " PROMINENT AMONG WHO WAS OUR CIC OFFICER, MR, ESTOCK, WHO HAD BEEN CITED FOR LEADING A POLLYWOG RE- V.OLT, EXCEPT FOR A FEW SORE POSTERIORS AND SEVERAL SUN- BURNED CRANIUMS, THE RADAR GANG IS BACK TO ITS NORMAL ROUTINE OF COLLECTING.

KING, WE ARE A MAJOR FIGHTING UNIT IN THE MODERN NA VY ,OF t 9r, 1 . THE COMMUNICATIC S-i-STEM HAS TWO MAJOR AIMS : ONE TO SERVE COMMAND AND SECONDLY TO AID ADM IN I STRATI ON .

COMMUNICATIONS IS BASED ON THREE BASIC PRINCIPLES, RELIABILITY, SECUR AND SPEED; AND THESE PRINCIPLES ARE FOLLOWED CLOSELY ABOARD THE KING . THE RADIOMEN AND SIGNALMEN MAKE UP THE COMPLEMENT OF OC DIVISION .ABOARD THE KIN WITH A TOTAL OF 19 BODIES IN ALL. LTJG J.C .

ALTHOUGH THE OUTWARD APPEARAN or JOBS BETWEEN THE TWO RATES OF RADIOMAN AND SIGNALMAN MAY SEEM DIFFERENT. THE RESL IS EFFECTIVE AND RELIABLE COMMUNICATIONS, RECENTLY WHEN WE WERE CALLED OUT ON A RESC MISSION TO PICK UP THE SICK SAILOR OFF OF THE MERCHANT SHIP, VOIC E COM MUN ICATIONS WERE EST A LISHED WHILE WE WERESTILL ALMOST A THOUSAND MILES AWAY FROMTHE OTHER VESSEL. THIS W, ACCOMPLISHED BY THE USE OF NEW GEAR CALLED " SINGLE SIDE BArJD. " THIS LONG RANGE VO COMMUNICATIONS ENABLED THE DOCTOR ABOARD OUR SHIP TO TALK WITH THE PERSON ATTENDING 1 PATIENT ON THE OTHER SHIP AND GIVE ANY AID THAT HE COULD UNTIL WE ARRIVED AND THE MAN A TRANSFERRED TO THE KING. WHILE OP RATINGWITH OTHERSHIPS, THE DIVl SION PLAY AN IMPORTANT PART IN THE MANE :RS THATARE CARRIED ON. FOR EXAMPLE; WHILE O N PLAND GUARD FOR THE U.S.S .

AMID THE HOOPLA AND FIZZ OF THE BUCK ROGERS ERA IN THE U.S. NAVYTHERE IS ONE SHIPBOARD DIVISION THAT HASN ' T CHANGED MUCH SINCE THE DAYS WHEN SIR FRANCIS DRAKE WAS BUSY TRYING TO KEEP THE BULL- FIGHTS OUT OF P ICADI LLY . IT ' S THE GOOD OLD SWEEPIN ' , PAINTIN ' , CHIP- PIN ' , SWABBIN ' DECK FORCE. MAYBE THEY DON ' T KNOW A MAINS ' L FROM A FLYING JIB , BUT THEY CAN SWAB A DECK OR SECURE A LINE AS WELL AS ANY TIMBER SHIVERIN ' OLD SEA DOG THAT WAS EVER WORTH HIS RUM . ON THE KING THE DECK FORCE IS KNOWN BY ALL AS WD (WONDERFUL DUTY) DIVISION. IT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MAIN DECK, BOAT DECK, BOATS, ANCHORS, BOATSWAIN STORES, AND THE SIDES. IT SUPPLIES MOST OF THE PERSONNEL FOR DECK WATCH ES , TOPS I DE SEA ANDANCHOR DE- TAIL STAT IONS , ANpSlDEBOYS WHENEVER THE OCCASION DEMANDS . DURING GENERAL QUARTERS THE DECK BOYS GO A LONG WAY IN FILLING OUT GUN, MAGAZINE AND DIRECTOR CREWS, REPAIR PARTIES, AND WHAT HAVE YOU. AND DON ' T FORGET THE REPLENISHMENT AT SEA STATIONS, AND ALL THE OTHER MILLION AND ONE OTHER ODD JOBS THAT CAN POP UP ANYTIME AND USUALLY DO. NO Vv ' ONDER IT IS THE LARGEST DIVISION ABOARD WITH 45 1 COUNT ' EM) MEN . THE FIRST LIEUTENANT, LT.PIOTTI , IS THE DIVISION OFFICER, ABLY ASSISTED BY ENS . SESTRIC AND CATOE . BMC . THEY IN TURN GET A HAND FROM ALLTHOSE DOVE VOICED BOATSWAIN ' S YOU HEAR FROM TIME TO TIME OVER THE IMC , WHITMAN ,BM 1 , HILL, EM ' , CZOCHANSKl , BM2 , MULDER , BM3, AND BENSON, BMSN. SO THE NEXT TIME THE SW ' cET CHARIOT SWINGS LOW BY FLEET LANDING, TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THE BM AT THE WHEEL.

WG DIVISION ALSO MAINTAINS A SMALL ARMS ARMORY WHICH CONTAINS THE RIFLES, PISTOLS AND MACHINE GUNS WHICH WOULD BE USED IF THE KING EVER HAD TO PUT A LANDING FORCE ASHORE. SINCE COMMISSIONING AND DURING THE UNDERWAY TRAINING PERIOD THE KING AND HER GUNS HAVE ESTABLISHED A RECORD THAT HER SISTER SH I PS Wl LL H, ' VE A HARD Tl M E MATCHING.

WHEN FULLY COMPLIMENTED THERE ARE TWENTY FOUR MEN IN THE DIVISION. THE FIRE CONTROL TECH N I CAN DOESN ' T FIGHT Fl RES AS THE NAME MIGHT IMPLY. ON TH E CONTARY, HE TRIES TO CREATE THEM BY AIMING THE GUNS AND GUIDING THE MISSILES ONCE THEY ARE IN FLIGHT, HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MAINTENANCE OF THE FOLLOWING: DIREC- TORS, RANGEFINDER, FIRE CONTROL RADAR, ELECTRIC AND HYDRALIC POWER DRIVES CONNECTED WITH Fl RE CONTROL , COM PUTERS , SYNCHRO-SERVO MEGHAN ISMS , AND STAB- ILIZING DEVICES USED TO CORRECT FOR ROLL AND PITCH OF THE SHIP. IN ADDITION TO THESE DUTIES HE MUST BE A GOOD SAILOR . AT THE PRESENT TIME W F " DIVISION IS TOP HEAVY, THAT IS TO SAY WE ARE OVER COMPLIMENTED WITH SENIOR RATES . THE REASON FORTHIS BEING THE COMPLEXITY OF GEAR ON BOARD. OUR GEAR IS OF THE LATEST DE- SIGN, CAPABLE OF SUPRESSING ANY ATTACK BY AN AGGRESSOR. WITH THIS NEW GEAR GAMF MANY EXTRA HOURS OF HARD WORK WHICH WAS MET BY ALL HANDS WITH ENERGETIC ABILITIES, DEVOTION TO DUTY, AND A DESIRE TO GET THE JOB DONE. OURREGORD SPE.AKS FOR ITSELF.

AH. YOU HAVE FOUND IT, NOW DIAL 343 .... DEAD! YOU HAVE JUST BEEN INTRODUCED TO ER DIVISION, THE DIVISION WITH ITS FINGERS IN MORE PIES THAN ANY DIVISION ON THE KING. THE DIVISION IS SPLIT INTO FOUR GANGS FOR EASE IN CONFUSING THE POOR SOULS THAT HAVE TO MAKE ATROUBLE CALL. LEADING OFF ON THE RUN DOWN OF GROUPS IS THE " A " GANG, THESE MEN ARE THEONES WHO MAKE SURE THAT THE UTILITY BOAT IS ABLE TO MAKE LIBERTY RUNS. THEY SUPPLY THE AIR CONDITIONING THAT WE DON ' T NOTICE UNTIL IT IS SECURED . THESE ARE THE MEN WHO YOU WILL GO TO SEE WHEN YOU NEED A SPECIAL TOOL, STEAM OR H P A I R TO YOUR SPACE , A HOLE DRILLED IN SOME- THING , OR ATHING-A-MA-BOB TURNED OUT ON TH E LATHE. THEIR REEFER MACHINES KEEP THE REEFERS AT THE RIGHT TEMPERATURE TO MAKE SURE THE CHOW I SN ' T RU IN ED BEFORE IT GETS TO THE GALLEY. THEY MUST MAINTAIN THE EMERGENCY FIRE PUMPS, THE STEERING GEAR, AND THEY MUST INSURE THAT THE EMERGENCY DIESEL IS IN A CONSTANT STATE OF READINESS TO ACCEPT FULL ELECTRICAL LOAD ON THE GENERATOR . THE ELECTRICIANS GROUP OR " E " GANG IS NEXT ON THE LIST. THIS GROUP HAS ITS HANDS FULL WITH THE SHIPS ELECTRICAL TROUBLES AND IS SPLIT INTO TWO SEPARATE SUB-GROUPS, THE POWER PUMP AND THE LIGHTING GROUP. THEY TAKE CARE OF AND OPERATE THE SHIPS SERVICE GENERATORS, EMERGENCY GENERATORS , DISTRIBUTION BOARDS AND PANELS AND ALSO MOST OF THE MAJOR ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONS. THEY ALSO HAVE SECONDARY FUNCTIONS THAT INCLUDE MAINTENANCE AND CHECKS ON ALL VENT MOTORS, PORTABLE TOOLS, BATTERIES, LIGHTING, AND MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS SUCH AS TOASTERS, IRONS, AND ETC. THAT CONTRIBUTE TO OUR CONVEN I ENC E AND WELL BEING. NOW WE COMETOTHE SHIPFITTER OR DAMAGE CONTROL GROUP. THIS GROUP CONTAINS SHIPFITTERS, PIPEFITTERS AND DAMAGE CONTROLMEN. THE PRIMARY FUNCTION OF THIS GROUP IS DAMAGE CONTROL ON THE KING AND TO INSURE THAT THE KING ' S MEN ARE INSTRUCTED AND QUALIFIED IN THE WAYS OF DAMAGE CONTROL. THEY MUST ALSO BE AVAU_ABLE IN CASE SOMEONE WISHES TO HAVE SOME WELDING OR CUTTING JOB DONE. THEY ARE ALWAYS ON HAND TO UNPLUG A DECK DRAIN TO PROVIDE EQUIPMENT FROM THEIR DAMAGE CONTROL LOCKERS IN EVENT OF EMERGENCIES. THESE MEN PLAY A MAJOR ROLE IN KEEPING THE SHIP SEAWORTHY AND IN TRIM TO COMPLETE HER PRIMARY PURPOSE AS A WAR SHIP, FINALLY, LAST BUT NOT LEAST IS THE IC GANG. THESE ARE THE MEN WHO ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SHOWING OF ALL THE BAD MOVIES THEY MANAGE TO SNEAK ABOARD AND THE HORRIBLE SELECTION OF RECORDS ON THE SHIPS JUKEBOX. THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL INTERIOR COMMUNICATIONS ABOARD SHIP WHICH MEANS WHEN YOUR T ELEPHONE DOESN ' T WOR K YOU CAN BLAME THE !C GANG. THEY ALSO ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR OPERATING AND MAI NTA IN I NG TH E GYRO COMPASS , TACHOMETERS, WIND INDICATORS, GENERAL ANNOUNCING SYSTEMS AND ONE HUNDRED AND ONE Dl FFERENT ALARM CIRCUITS THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE SHIP, PLUS THE SHIPS ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM.

THE TERRIER MISSILE AS WORLD WAR 11 DREW TO A CLOSE HIGH PERFORMANCE JET AIRCRAFT HAD NEARLY REACHED THE OPERATIONAL STORE. SHORTLY THERAFTER IT BECAME APPARANT THAT CON VENTIONAL GUNS WOULD , BE UNABLE TO COPE WITH THE JET AIRCRAFT AND THEIR ADVANCED WEAPON ' S DELIVERY SYSTEMS. THE JETS FLEW TOO FAST. TOO FAR, AND TOO HIGH FOR THE CAPABILITIES OF THE GUNS OF THE FLEET. GUIDED MISSILES WERETHE LOGICAL ANSWER, AND THE NOW FAMOUS BUMBLEBEE PROGRAM COM- MENCED IN 1950 TO DEVELOP AN ACCEPTABLE SURFACE-TO-AIR GUIDED MISSILE. TERRIER WAS THE RESULT . TERRIER IS A SUPERSONIC , TWO-STAGE .SOLID FUEL .BEAM R I DING GU IDE D M ISS ILE .SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR MEDIUM RANGE AIR TARGETS . THE SOLID FUEL BOOSTER GENERATES MANY TONS OF THRUST SO THAT IN A MATTER OF A FEW SECONDS THE MISSILE IS PROPELLED TO ITS DESIGNED SUPERSONIC OPERATIONS SPEED. THE EXPENDED BOOSTER I S UNLATCHED FROM THE M ISS I LE AND JETISONED . THE ROCKET MOTOR WITHIN THE MISSILE IS THEN ACTIVATED TO SUSTAIN THE MISSILE AT ITS SUPERSONIC SPEED, TERRIER IS GUIDED TOT HETARGET BY A GUIDANCE RADAR BEAM TRANSMITTED FROM THE SHIPS MISSILE GUIDANCE RADAR. THE MISSILE CAN SENSE ITS POSITION WITHIN THE BEAM. THE " BRAIN " OFTHE MISSILE RESPONDS WITH ORDERS TO THE MISSILE WINGS WHICH ARE POSITIONED TO DIRECT THE MISSILE TO THE CENTER OF THE BEAM. THE BEAM IS CONTINUALLY TRACK ING THE TARGET AIRCRAFT SO THAT TERRIER FLIES ON INTER- CEPT TRAJECTORY. WHEN THE MISSILE IS WITHIN LETHAL RANGE THE HIGH EXPLOSIVE CONTROLLED FRAGMENTATION WARHEAD IS DETONATED CAUSING DESTRUCTION OF THE TARGET. THECOMPLETE TERRIER ROUND IS NEARLY 30 FEET LONG AND WEIGHS ABOUT 1 1 a TONS. ITS RANGE IS IN EXCESS OF 1 MILES , AND IT CAN OPERATE AT ALTITUDES ABOVE 40 ,000 FEET. . -Y ' ' r;- v.
