NOTES

  1. All hands are urged to buy a sufficient supply of stamps now to last for the next two months.
  2. All hands are congradulated on the excellent ceremonial procedures executed on such short notice yesterday. All field officers on board unreservedly gave RUSH credit for stopping the attack the night of 7 June with its accurate fire to within 150 yards of friendly front line troops. The communists withdrew so rapidly they left supplies including rice in the area. Leaving rice behind, according to the records, rarely happens unless they are hard pressed.
  3. The following parts of a message was sent by the task group commander to various people including ComNavFe and Com 7th Fleet.

    "Alert zealous RUSH has been exercising commendable initiative. She finds and breaks up enemy attacks before others know they are developing. Her CO is as good as her gunners. It is pleasing to watch her flush her prey and make the kill and retire.
