HAZEITON * "A whole Navy's herel" "We were going in with weight and power behind us." By Galbraith M ONDAY, JULY 27-1 was resting in my stateroom yesterday afternoon when Dr. John Garrison, a Navy medical officer, rushed in puffing with excitement. "A lot of ships just came up," he said. "A whole Navy! Better go look at "cm." So I ambled out on deck to see the horizon spotted with ships, in a huge semi-circle around us. There were transports and freight ships, cruisers, destroyers, and the long, high, bo.x-like shapes of aircraft carriers perched on the rim of the ocean. Identification at that distance was difficult, but thing was certain—we had made a rendezvous with the other and main part of our task forces. We were conscious of the fact that this was one of the largest and strongest groups of war vessels ever gathered. And the thought that we were going into our adventure with weight and power behind us was cheering. This afternoon I was invited to the colonel's cabin for a spot of tea. I surmised that at this impromptu function I would hear the news as to where we might be heading. And I was right. The colonel had been notified that an attacl; was to be launched on the Jap strongholds at "I packed, so as to be ready ..." Guadalcanal and Tulagi, in the Solomon Islands. Rut he explained that his group of troops was not going to take part in the assault. "So, he said to me, "if you want to see action, it might be wise to shift to another ship." After dinner, in the blacked-out cabin, I packed my bags so as to be ready to change ships when the word came. WEDNESDAY, JULY 29-1 moved to another transport today. The ship is one of two carrying the Marines who are to land first and sci/e n Guadalcanal beach-head. It was a shock to come close to my new ship. She was an ancient, angular horror, with a dirty hull and patches of "My new ship was an ancient angular horror." rust on her flnnks-in sharp contrast to the luxury shin 1 had just left. The deck was black with slime and grit -lor, as I was to discover later, the ship had no modern apparatus for pumping water. The Marines cramming the deck were just as dirty. 1 went down to the cabin .of Col. LeRoy P. Hunt, commanding officer of the assault troops. The colonel was quite serious about the job that lay ahead. "It's going to be tough going on the beach," he said quietly. "Somebody's going to get hurt."
