Says Rick: "We were in such a hurry to get on station that we had to put it (the crossing the line ceremony) off till we were headed back north to Guam, so we had all been shellbacks for a few days before it happened. We were sprayed with ice cold salt water for what seemed like forever before crawling on hands and knees to the flight deck with heads down. If they came up, you got the shelleleigh across your a**, hard. We thought we had thrown them over the side the night before but as we found out the next morning we were very painfully wrong. Those old salts knew everything we were going to do, before it happened. There were so few shellbacks that as soon as you got through it you got to go whack a few a**es yourself.

The third is black with the ship's picture and crest on the front, and a map of the Hawaiian islands on the back. The fourth is an *extremely* hard to find item - a zippo from the Taiwanese frigate ROCN Fong Yang, FFG-933 (Ex. USS Brewton). (color 116k - photo M. Lookabaugh)

PHOTO #221 : Three more USS Brewton zippo lighters (see also photo 215). The first is chrome with white inlay. It has a picture of the ship on the front, and a map of the Hawaiian islands on the back with the words "Paradise of the Pacific". The second has a matte black finish, with a picture of the ship and the ship's crest on the front, and the same image of the Hawaiian islands on the back. The colors on this one look very nice contrasted against the black. The third has seen much better days, but is probably the rarest item on the entire site. It is a chrome non-standard size zippo, with the ship's crest on the front. The back is engraved with PLANK OWNER, USS BREWTON (DE-1086), KEEL LAID 2 OCTOBER 1970, LAUNCHED 24 JULY 1971, COMMISSIONED 8 JUNE 1972. There couldn't have been more than 500 or so of these made. We have over 50 of the original plank owners listed on the page. So there's about a 25% chance that someone on our shipmates list was the guy that owned this thing originally! (color 90k - photo M. Lookabaugh)

[A very astute shipmate correctly questioned the math here. "If there were maybe 500 of these made, and there are 50 plank owners on the site, wouldn't that be a 10% chance?" Here's the logic used: Assuming that each one of them was purchased by an actual plankowner (there are 225 listed in the commissioning book), there would be 225 people that owned one or more. About 25% of that number is represented in the current shipmate listing.]

PHOTO #222 : May 24, 1984. the USS Brewton proudly sails under the Golden Gate Bridge and into San Francisco Bay, carrying the remains of the Vietnam war unknown soldier from Hawaii. Later that morning, after the ship tied up, an arrival ceremony was held at Alameda Naval Air Station. This photo was taken by Larry Groce, who was employee of the Golden Gate at the time. Larry also served in the US Navy in Vietnam as an MM3 on the USS Preble (DLG-15) in 1967, and on the USS Samuel Gompers (AD-37) in 1968. More photos of the unknown soldier ceremony can be seen here.

PHOTO #262 : This is funny. We were steaming around in circles for about 40 days in the Gulf of Siam waiting for work to help evacuate some embassy people in Cambodia. Nothing happened, but the waiting and heat began to effect the crew. The water was like glass for weeks, with no wind. The Captain entertained himself by shooting these large sea snakes that seemed to surround the ship with a .22 rifle from the bridge wing. Some of us talked the Captain into letting us have a swim call, and the word was passed and recived with enthusiasm by the crew. Everyone showed up on the fantail dressed for the occasion... but then everyone started thinking about the sea snakes. HM1 Diaz didnít help much by mentioning that the venom is almost always fatal, and we donít have any antivenom. So everyone kind of stands around for awhile. Westpac 1973-1974.
