AS WE HEAD FOR HOME . . .
My job as your Commanding Officer was made easy this past
deployment because you were proud of your work, enjoyed your
liberty and pulled together as the crew of KING rather than go
your different individual ways.
Unfortunately for security reasons, you were not informed
of many of KING's highly successful accomplishments during what
appeared to be routine picket duty. However, I will tell you
we did not carry out the mission of a destroyer! No little sis-
ter destroyer during our deployment had the engineers who could
keep the plant operating and the fresh water tanks fullg no de-
stroyer had missiles in warm up and long range fire control radars
in standby, no destroyer controlled high performance jet aircraft
or detected and intercepted nunfriendliesu several hundred miles
in advance of our carriers, no destroyer could join our NTDS com-
puter data link or carry a helo, in fact the only ships that could
compete with KING were much larger. Yes, you all joined the big
league players on this cruise.
As we head for home having concluded our assignment with the
SEVENTH Fleet, it is hoped that you have been left with a sense
of personal satisfaction that our deployment in the Western Pacifi
has contributed to maintaining peace in the world and that we have
significantly promoted good will and understanding with our allies
I dedicate this cruise book to the hard working crew of KING,
I wish you all success in your Naval or civilian careers and I bid
you all a traditional Navy nwell Donen.
D. M. JACKSON
Com anding Officer
