USS LANSING (DER-388) ACTIVITY LOG

(Excerpted from actual deck logs obtained from National Archives, Washington DC)

 

(In the interest of protecting their anonymity, ships company have been assigned aliases,

which have no correlation to their actual name)

 

 

1-1-60 0000 Somewhere in the North Pacific, where the wind is like a curse,

and each long day is followed by another slightly worse.

 

Where the skies are always cloudy, and the seas are really mean,

where sleep is mostly rowdy and your face is yellow-green.

 

Where the snow and sleet blows thicker than the shifty desert sands,

and the Picket Sailor dreams of green and steady lands.

 

Somewhere in the North Pacific, where we pitch and rock in isolation

on cold and snowy Alfa Alfa Station,

 

Where COMBARPACs Op-Order Seventy dash Fifty-Nine moves us

towards Alfa Bravo for a time, and his Notice Zero Three One Twenty

lets us roll quite a plenty,

 

Somewhere in the North Pacific, where the mail is always late,

and a Christmas gift in April is considered up to date,

 

Where Main Engines Three and Twos mighty humming robs a man of blessed sleep,

where there isnt any whiskey and the water is so cheap,

 

Where the setting of Condition YOKE is never thought of as a joke,

and a New Years celebration is done with only coke,

 

Where we steam at knots of hardly Eight and on a course of One Nine Five,

with Condition Ready Four, Picket Three Eight Eight

will surely make her date, for at Zero Three Hundred, two thirds at twelve,

she changed her gait.

 

Somewhere in the North Pacific, where the albatross do play,

and a hundred flying fish replace each one you slay,

 

Where it may be great for gooney birds to mate,

but for LANSING men, its only second rate.

 

Oh, take me back to Diamond Head, let me see a smaller swell,

for this God forsaken Barrier is a cold substitute for Hell.
