On this day, under War Shipping Administration sponsorship, the United States honors the gallant service of the American Merchant Marine—its ships and the men who run them. Th«y hav« built and maintained the supply lines to Victory. Standard of California is proud to salute them and to tell • little of what they have done. Appropriately, September 27 is the third anniversary of the launching of the first Liberty Ship, the S. S. PATRICK HENRY. Despite all of war's hazards she still is on the job "delivering the goods." Sine* she was launched, more than 3,600 American merchant vessels have followed her down the ways. Their job has been, night and day, to see that everything we at home can produce is landed in the hands of our front line fighting men at the time and place to do the most damage to the enemy. Standard off California operates a great fleet of tankers, so we naturally know best the tanker men and their ships. You can take it for granted that they will get their oil and gasoline through—or be sunk in the attempt. •ut/ they do a lot more than carry the products for which tankers were built. Extra decks have been built and on them are carried complete planes that go into the air within a few hours after the tankers make a landfall. These extra loads provide the air replacements for many a Pacific Island base and plane carrier at the strategic time. Tholr decks carry PT boats complete with crews. They haul guns and amphibious tanks, ready to go overside into action. And then, although the tankers swing low in the water, they frequently throw out cable and haul along behind a barge loaded with even more gasoline and oil, or the other mate- mis of war. • Yos, all honor to these ships and their officers and men. They, too, are at the beachheads. E flat, with 3 ilort, •wardld to mr Richmond Itfimry STANDARD OF CALIFORNIA RECORDS Sec HARRY CITRON -Air Corps Photo PRESENTS AWARD—Lieutenant-Colonel Newton H.
