FRUM THE MOUTHS OF X.0.'s . .
From: USS LOEEERG
To: GomTaskGru 11.7
Info: GomTaskUnit 11.7.2
Way back on October twenty-three,
The ASW Group put out to sea.
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
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
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. ' '
