On the advancement in rate group Commanding Officer, LCDR W. W. Patterson is

ORI personnel inspection: Captain ? (COSL?) Watch Section 2, Calkins (LPO
& KSW), Palmer (plotter), and Purcell (KDW). I wasn't getting a medal or
anything. My ID had crept up in my pocket - but it made a good picture. We
did win the "Big E" in '63 with Section 2 carrying the dreaded day watch.
