FROM THE Cf-WPTHIN
Everything that a ship does, every drill, every ex-
ercise, every refueling, every inspection . . . is for one
reason and one reason only . . . to prepare us to
serve our country with honor in combat. This past
year we have worked long and hard to prepare for
this deployment, for it is on deployments like this one
to the far off corners of the earth that ships are most
likely to encounter that terrible fact of life - that
there are those who would enslave innocent people
- and it is our responsibility to keep those people
free. Not all men and women are cut out for this diffi-
cult responsibility, but l thank God that the men l led
in KISKA are ready to serve with honor in war as well
My pride of you men in KISKA has no bounds.
We steamed thousands of miles, handled thousands
of tons of ordnance and kept all ship's systems oper-
ational. All this was done without a single major mis-
hap. You performed superbly. While inport, we saw
many other cultures and races and enjoyed the sights
and sounds of Japan, Hong Kong, Korea and the Phi-
lippines. We saw that the barriers of language and
customs are easily bridged by courtesy and respect,
and the international symbol of friendliness, a smile.
We saw that people in other countries make do very
well without most of the luxuries that we in the United
States enjoy, luxuries such as air conditioning, a car
and space to park it, refrigerators, paved roads. You
men who were seeing these things for the first time
came back, l'm sure, with a new view on what it takes
to be happy.
The highest compliment a Commanding Officer
can pay his men is to say that he is ready and willing
to lead them in combat. l have, do now and will con-
tinue to emphatically say that about you. On this de-
ployment you served your country, your Navy and me
superbly and with great honor.
