The Corpsman he has all the cures -
His job's to heal the sick.
When sick call's passed he's always there
To fix you up - but quick.
And he is the man to see
to get your purple pills.
For we all know Mombasa
ls no place to catch the chills.
Disbursing is the place to go
When you want to draw some payg
They'lI sit right down and figure it,
'They'll compute it - day for day.
Then they'll hand you what is due you -
lt's not that much, of course.
Oh, perhaps you haye forgotteng
You're still dragging that dead horse.

Last of the Great White Fleet
As bands played "The Girl I Left Behind Me," the
sixteen battleships of the Great White Fleet sailed from
Hampton Roads, Virginia. lt was December 16, 1907, and
they were off on a momentous voyage around the globe.
Teddy Roosevelt was in the White House - the first
American president to take an active part in international
affairs. And' the Navy was his tool in projecting American
power and prestige abroad.
The cruise of the Great White Fleet was to have
tangible diplomatic and technical results. Its visit to Japan
helped maintain the status quo in the Pacific, and provided
recognition of the United States as a world power. Being at
sea for fourteen months and
steaming 46,000 miles proved that the fleet could travel
long distances without serious problems. Returning home '
via the Suez Canal, the Great White Fleet reached Hampton -
Roads on February 22,1909.
On that same date 55 years later, the USS LA SALLE
was commissioned as an amphibious transport dock. Her
trademarks: mobility, flexibility and versatility.
In 1972 she was converted to a command ship for her
new role as flagship for Commander Middle East Force,
who maintains diplomatic relations with governmental
representatives in the area. LA SALLE's sides were painted
white to reflect the heat of the Mideast climate.
We're the men who ride LA SALLE,
Hull AGF dash threeg
Proud sister tothe Great White Fleet,
She knows her way at sea.
Our Mideast neighbors know her well
When she pulls into sight
For she's the last of those great ships
Whose sides are painted white.

Now it's time for shore patrol
So you'd better bear a handg
Just drop on by the gun shack
For your stick and black arm band.
Your duty day is underway,
You're not off 'til eight bells.
But tomorrow's your turn on the beach
ln the beautiful Seychelles.
Bos'un's Mates, are often called
Deck apes . . . but they ain't.
You see, there's much more to their rate than
Hauling chains and chipping paint.
All through the night they keep us safe
As Iookouts while at seag
And without their skills once we make port
Ashore we'd never be. ,
