HIP' HISTOR Y On 23 October 1964, the USS LOFBERG--17 officers and 252,men strong--setsail on a seven month cruise in the Western Pacific. Leaving behind families and many friends, we ventured off into the realm of Buddhist temples, kimonos, hibachi's, and hotsey baths, to return on 17 May 1965, a little saltier, a little wiser, a little older, a little stronger. Proudly dis- playing the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, each and every officer and man now feels a new closeness to his Country and to his fellow militants. 79.22, of the time, LOFBERC was underway, but spirits remained high and complaints were few and far between. - This book attempts to tell, in part, the story of the 1964-65 WESTPAC CRUISE of the USS LOFBERC. Our ship was named for Commander Gustov Brynwolf Lofberg, who exhibited conspicuous gallantry in action against enemy forces off Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands, on 4 September 1942. Commander Lofberg, skipper of the USS LITTLE, challanged a numerically superior Japanese naval force, and after scoring numerous hits the LITTLE was spotlighted by two enemy de- stroyers and set aflame. Commander Lofberg was lost at sea during the battle. The keel of the USS LOFBERC was laid at San Francisco, California, by the Bethlehem Steel Company on 4 November 1943. A 2200 ton short hull destroyer, she was christened a year later and commissioned on 26 November 1944. Completing her shakedown cruise too late to participate in World War II, the LOFBERG was at Pearl Harbor on 9 August 1945, when the Japanese forces surrendered. Durin the months which followed World War II, LOFBERG served in' various .capacities 3 ranging from Commander Mine Squadron Three--controlling the clearing of mines in the Japanese Islands--to courier and patrol ship duties off the Chinese mainland. ' ' h K A t'o The LOFBERG completed three tours of duty in the Far East during t e orean c 1 n, serving with the fast carrier task forces off both coasts of Korea, providing naval gunfire sup- port, and patrolling the Straits of Formosa, in addition to conducting numerous training exer- cises. The '64-'65 cruise marked the 11th occasion that the LOFBERG had served with the Seventh Fleet since the Korean Action. Following our departure from San Diegot in October, our schedule included 10 days in I-Iawaii, six weeks on the Formosa Patrol, a week of upkeep in Subic Bay, P.I., a week of R gl R in I-long Kong, patrol duties in the South China Sea, 13 days of upkeep in Sasebo, and 3 days of frantic buying in Yokosuka. It was a memorable cruise: 37 days straight at sea--46 days straight at sea--ah yes, we remember it well! As you leaf through these pages, it is hoped that you will recall or come to a better understanding of the 1964-19 5 WESTPAC CRUISE of the USS LOFBERC! D DICAT 0 This book is dedicated to the officers and men who were injured on the l7th of December l9o4, While attempting to secure the anchor for sea shortly after departing Keelung Harbor, Taiwan. Davis, BM3, Carnahan, EMFN, Ingalls, SN,Snyder,SN, and Pittman, SA, Were so seriously injured that they were returned to the States for treatment. LTJG Danielson, Chief Orlando Potember, BMl, Perez, SF2, Nash, SN, Thomas, SN, Fields, SN, Copeland, SA, and Pierce, SA, were hospitalized with various injuries, but returned to the ship Within six Weeks following the accident.

Four cans, a carrier, and one DE, Then four more ships for the ORE. Things went Well for all the rest, But LOEEERG was plucked to take I-IANGGGK west. So the Group was split and to some lt was an indication of things to come. With you in Japan and us in Kaohsiung, Christmas found the Group far-flung. ln fact, not until we reached Hong Kong, Did we catch up and tag along. We steamed in circles again and again Before a voice said "Go north, young men." Then off to Sasebo for buying and cheer, And a certain goatee disappeared, we hear. Evaluated marine life Leaving on St. Paddy's Day, Looking to April and a month of play, But Seventhfleet said, "You're in your prime, "So stay right there for a longer time." So We spread out as drops of rain, And our April schedule Went down the drain. No l-long Kong, no Yoko, no Sasebo, It looked as if directly home we'd go. After forty-odd days, we'd done our part, And someone up there had a change of heart. The word came down to Number Ten, That she should see Japan again. With metal, china, and trinkets of wood, The DGA's prayed for Weather good. With the added Weight and stability fantastic The Japanese should use more lightweight plastic. . But it's over now--we're almost home, The end of the cruise--the end of a poem. Our last chance, to say vve've been tickled to death , , To have Worked for .you and your staff, Admiral Veth.

Well, it was fun while it lasted. . . if THIS, OUR FI AL U REPO These words were more than just welcome to each and every man who had a replenishment detail station. On sixty different occasions, LOFBERG replenished while underway from AO's, AKS's, AF's, AE's, AFS's, and from one AOE during the seven months away from San Diego. Every Sunday was assured at least one UNREP. From as early as 0400 to as late as 2100, the Replenish- ment Detail was set, and the men were always swift to man their stations. I The fact that we suffered no serious accidents during UNREPS is no doubt due in part to the inspiring safety lec- tures which preceded each UNREP by INGE, TMI "Inspira- ii , ,Sl t S Q l . , t f f tional" is the best word that can be used to describe his briefings, and even that does not do his works of art justice. Time after time, the men at the forward, midshipsnalld after stations turned in sterling performances and received compliment upon compliment from the UNREP ships. The LOEBERG has developed and maintained an outstanding rep- utation for seamanship, and this is definitely due in great part to safe and speedy UNREPS. "We are making our approach."

Kaohsiung is the southernmost port and provides the i largest harbor area on the island. The people of Kaohsiung were exceptionally friendly to the LOFBERG on our several visits during December and the first part of January. One of the highlights of our visits was the inter-division softball tournament held at the Tsoying Chinese Naval Base. Our frequent visits made it possible for us to learn ' 3 local customs and to make many new Chinese friends. 5 l'Good-deals" ranging from jewelry to shoes to wood- ' carving were available in many interesting little shops. ?

Keelung, Taiwan, is located on the northeastern tip of Taiwan. It was founded in 1626 by the Spaniards. The Dutch drove the Spaniards out in 1642 and in 1660 the Chinese drove out the Dutch. Since that time there has been a constant migration of Chinese to the island from the mainland, and in 1949, the Government of the Republic of China set up their capital in Taipei--about 35 minutes from Keelung by bus. Personnel of the LOEBERC spent much of their time in Taipei, and many enjoyed the all-day tour which took in most of the his- torical points of interest. . if The Tragedy . . . At 1159 on 17 December 1964, the USS LOEEERC got underway from alongside Nationalist Chinese Oiler H309 after taking on fuel and proceeded out of Keelung Harbor. At pre- cisely 1215, the ship suddenly rose sharply on a large swell, and then the bow crashed down-ward into the base of the next oncoming swell. Of the fifteen men who were on the forecastle, one was washed overboard and fourteen were in- jured. DAVIS, EM3,CARNAI-IAN, EMEN, SNYDER, SN, P ITMAN, SA, and INCALLS, SA, were in- jured so severely that they were returned to the States for treat- ment. LTJC DANIELSON, ORLANDO, EMC, POTEMEER, BMI, PEREZ, SE2, NASI-I, SN, THOMAS, SN, FIELDS, SN COPELAND, SA, and PIERCE SA, were hospitalized, but re- turned to the ship within a few 7 9 KEELUN weeks.

After thirty-seven days at sea, Sasebo was certainly a welcome sight. The ship was in amazingly good condition considering the extensive steaming, but there was a lot of work to be accomplished while in port. An if was accomplished. ly: there were enjoyable moments, too. Sasebo, the western-most city in Japan, is a key base for the Imperial Japanese Navy and noted for its ship-building and port facilities. Nearby places of interest include the Saikai National Park, the Kametama Shrine, Mount Yumhari QWhite Cloudy, Takshima Pearl Farm, and the Saikai Bridge. Nagasaki, only a two and a half hour train ride from Sasebo, was visited by many LOFBERGERS. Peace Park, a beautifully im- pressive and awing symbol of what must never happen again, is located quite near the point ogllgmpact of the atomic bomb dropped in 1 . Many bargains were to be found in the Fleet Display and in the Navy Exchange, as well as in the small shops which lined the downtown streets.

The city was ready and received ASWGRU THREE with open arms. The exchanges were packed with all sorts of "good deals" and with Navy men all trying to buy that certain pattern of China or crystal that they had promised the wife or sweetheart. The small shops pro- duced items of all descriptions to suit the needs of the most whimsical buyers. Yokosuka is located near the entrance of Tokyo Bay about twenty miles south of Yokohama. Yokosuka, or "Yoko," is noted for being one of Japan's most important trade ports. It is also the hub of Seventh Fleet operations, providing repair and other support services for the bulk of Naval vessels, in the Far East. A one-day tour to Tokyo Qsee pictures on opposite pagel offered the opportunity for many LOFBERGERS to see the major sights and to learn a little of the historical and cultural background of Japan.
