Captain H. A. Seymour USN

Captain Seymour assumed command of the
USS Kawishiwi AO-146
on 11 July 1960 at Subic Bay

It is a genuine privilege and a distinct pleasure for me to join a fine ship as KAWISHIWI. In my first few days on board it became readily apparent that she is not refered to as a "gold plater" without good reason. As a modern Fleet unit KAWISHIWI has a tremendous capability for service. the enviable reputation she has built attests amply to the fact that that capability has been demostrated again and again, on a continuing basis. Not only am I happy to be aboard, but in becoming a member of the ship's company of KAWISHIWI, the pleasure is mine.
