Tenino (AT-115) was laid down on 16 June 1943 at Alameda, Calif., by the United Engineering Co.; launched on 10 January 1944; sponsored by Mrs. William Mark; redesignated as ATF-115 on 16 May 1944; and commissioned on 18 November 1944, Lt. Forrest L. Van Camp in command.

Tenino held her shakedown cruise in the San Pedro Bay area until 30 December 1944 when she proceeded to San Diego to load salvage equipment. The next day, the tug got underway for Clipperton Island, off the coast of Mexico, to salvage two Navy ships that were aground there. She arrived on the scene on 4 January 1945 and began salvage operations for Seize (ARS-26) which was stranded in the vicinity of LST568. Work continued until the 15th when Seize was pulled clear of the beach. Tenino started to work on the LST the next day. On 30 January, she lost all of her salvage gear when her No. 3 starboard set of bitts was torn away from her bulwarks. Water poured into the engine room through the openings left by the bitts and the holes around loosened rivets. The tug then proceeded to the lee side of Clipperton Island to effect damage control measures. On 1 February, Tenino embarked several patients from the salvage group and headed for Magdalena Bay. The next day, her orders were changed, and she proceeded to Socorro Island where she transferred the patients to a plane on the 3d. The ship arrived at San Diego on the 5th and moved to the Naval Repair Base the next day. On the 9th she shifted berths to the Concrete Shipbuilding Co. National City, for final repairs.

Tenino departed San Diego on 24 February for San Francisco where she took Windsor (ARD-22) in tow for delivery to Hawaii. She delivered the floating drydock to Pearl Harbor on 16 March and began towing YM-21 toward Guam on 5 April. The tug arrived at Apra Harbor on 6 May and six days later, headed for Okinawa towing a floating drydock. She reached Buckner Bay on 20 May and served there as an emergency ship until 28 August. In this capacity, Tenino engaged in salvage, fire-fighting, and diving operations; performed rescue work, and towed battle casualties.

From 22 July to 7 August, Tenino labored to salvage torpedoed attack transport Marathon (APA-200). On 12 August, she aided the torpedoed Pennsylvania (BB 38). On the 30th, she and Serrano (ATF-112) took the battleship in tow and headed for the Marianas. They arrived at Apra Harbor, Guam, on 6 September and Tenino had her engines overhauled there before returning to Okinawa on 25 September. Four days later, the tug stood by to assist endangered ships during a typhoon period. After aiding several ships, Tenino found herself fast aground on 9 October. Bannock (ATF-81) and Menominee (AT-73) pulled her free of the reef on the 11th, and she was repaired in ARD-17. Tenino continued operating at Okinawa until 19 January 1946 when she got underway for the Philippines with Flagler (AKA-181) in tow. Upon delivering that attack cargo ship at Subic Bay, the tug headed back toward the Ryukyus and reached Okinawa on 8 February.

Five days later, she proceeded to the Marshalls. After touching at Saipan and Peleliu, she reached Eniwetok on 27 March but stood out to sea again the next day to retrieve the former Japanese cruiser Sakawa which was adrift and out of fuel. The tug returned to Eniwetok on the 31st. A week later, the tug headed for the west coast of the United States.

Tenino reached San Pedro on 24 May and remained there until 11 September when she got underway for the east coast. She arrived at Norfolk on 30 October and was routed via Charleston, S.C., to Orange, Tex. On 18 November 1946, the tug moved to New Orleans for a preinactivation overhaul which lasted until 8 February 1947. Tenino returned to Orange on 10 February and was assigned to the Atlantic Reserve Fleet. She was placed out of commission, in reserve, on 17 May 1947 and transferred to the Maritime Administration in September 1961. Tenino was struck from the Navy list in September 1962.

Tenino received one battle star for World War II service.

Navy Tenders / Tugs

Throughout history, the tender & tug has been an essential part of the United States Navy military operations. During World War II, these tenders & tugs were the homes to thousands of Navy personnel. Along with personnel, each tender & tug contained thousands of pounds of deadly asbestos. This asbestos was supplied by companies that knew the asbestos was dangerous and knew that, eventually, thousands of servicemen would contract terrible diseases from exposure to this mineral. But the companies chose profit over safety and hid those dangers from the navy and the servicemen.

Asbestos was used frequently for the insulation of pipes, boilers, electrical fixtures and hull construction. It was also used as a fire retardant material in many areas aboard ship, including non-skid flooring on decks and on bulk head walls. The worst areas on the tender & tug were in the fire, pump, and engine rooms where insulation covered the pipes and wiring. Some of the personnel most at risk include boiler tenders, electrician's mates, enginemen, machinist mates, pipefitters, and shipfitters.

Many of the companies that supplied asbestos products to the navy have admitted fault and set up trust funds to compensate navy veterans. If you know someone who has mesothelioma, contact us to learn more about your rights.

Below offers a list of some tenders & tugs that were commissioned between 1940 and 1990 and contained risks of asbestos exposure. Personnel aboard any of these ships or civilians that provided shipyard maintenance, repair or deconstruction may have been at risk of asbestos exposure.

Home of Wooden Money

Following World War I and until the Great Depression, logging and farming were the major economic factors in Tenino. Tenino was deeply affected just as other places in the country, but Tenino won world popularity by the Tenino Chamber of Commerce’s “wooden money” scheme, which was a plan to issue emergency scrip to relieve the money shortage caused by the failure of The Citizen’s Bank of Tenino. According to Dwelley, “The original scrip was on paper and was given to bank depositors in exchange for assignment to the chamber of up to 25% of the depositor’s bank account balance. Shortly afterward, the scrip was printed on ‘slice wood’ of spruce and cedar and immediately became famous as the original wooden money. Eight issues were printed between 1932 and 1933 with a total of $10,308 of the wooden currency put into circulation. It became a collector’s item, and only $40 was ever redeemed by the chamber.”

Tenino Showcases Rich History of Wooden Money, Sandstone Quarry

Loren Ackerman, of the Tenino Depot Museum, runs the 1890s-era printing press once used to print Tenino's wooden money during the Great Depression in this May 2017 file photo. Today, the press still prints wooden money that can be redeemed for goods at some area businesses.

Today, the Tenino Depot Museum still prints wooden money vouchers that can be used at participating area businesses.

Loren Ackerman, of the Tenino Depot Museum, shows off a display of Tenino's wooden money in this May 2017 file photo. The town remained solvent during the Great Depression by printing 'money' on thin sheets of wood on the local newspaper's printing press.

Jo Fenton-Coleman sits in front of Tenino's Quarry House Sunday. She participated in the "Thurston County Through the Decades" event in Tenino and spoke about her grandfather S.W. Fenton, one of the founders of the Tenino Stone Co., and her life growing up in the town.

Anne Kelleher, of the Tumwater Historical Association, sets up a booth celebrating Great Depression and World War II-era cookware at the "Thurston County Through the Decades" event Sunday in Tenino.

On Sunday, Jo Fenton-Coleman sat in front of the sandstone steps of the house where she was born and told passersby about charmed childhood summers spent swimming in the pool formed by the sandstone quarry founded by her grandfather, S.W. Fenton.

“It was the best life in the world,” she said. “That’s where I learned to swim. I swam like a fish.”

Fenton-Coleman joined members of historical societies in Thurston County for Sunday’s “Thurston County Through the Decades” program, organized by the Thurston County Historic Commission. The program includes twice-yearly events that each celebrate 25 years of history.

Sunday’s event in Tenino focused on 1925 to 1950, meshing with Fenton-Coleman’s recollections from the 1940s of swimming with her siblings in the pool on her family’s land and growing up in the booming small town.

“This was our playground,” she said. “My mom and dad sold that to the city because they couldn’t keep the kids out.”

Fenton-Coleman lived in Tenino until her home burned down in 1989. She managed to save portraits of her family from the fire as she evacuated. They were on display Sunday.

“When my house burned, we lost a lot of history,” she said.

She now lives in Centralia. She also saved records from her grandfather’s sandstone company.

“Tenino is so rich in history,” she said.

Sandstone is not Tenino’s only claim to fame. The town is equally well known for wood — wood money that is.

On Sunday, Loren Ackerman, of the Tenino Depot Museum, demonstrated the process Tenino used during the Great Depression to print its own wooden money.

Town leaders originally started printing the money on paper, but a salesman convinced them to try using a new product he was promoting called “slice wood,” Ackerman said. The original sheets were 1/80th of an inch thick.

From 1931 to 1933, the town used the Tenino Independent’s 1890 printing press to make the cash. The press is now at the Tenino Depot Museum, and is still used to make souvenir wooden money and wooden cash vouchers that are accepted at some Tenino businesses.

While Blaine Washington, used wooden coins, Ackerman said Tenino is the birthplace of wooden cash. As the economy recovered, the wooden money was sought as a collector’s item.

“It’s just very creative,” he said. “They did everything they could to keep this town solvent. That’s how they avoided Tenino going broke.”

The event included a number of other exhibits, including vintage cars, sandstone carving, weaving and more.

Members of the Tumwater Historical Association displayed kitchen and cooking equipment from the Great Depression and World War II era.

“This is the era of Toll House Cookies coming about,” Anne Kelleher said. “I was born in 1943. I remember the late ‘40s and ‘50s, so it’s part of my history.”

The Association had jars of the famous cookies available for passersby and examples of numerous Depression era cooking implements. While the mixers, egg beaters and lemon-squeezers were old, they are not antiques that sit on a shelf, said Corinne Tobeck.

“I use this stuff,” she said.

The event also included a display of Bucoda’s history during the 1925 to 1950 period. At that time, Bucoda and nearby Tono experienced a boom, said Dallis Unwin, Bucoda mayor from 1960 to 1964.

“They had a skating rink and a school and a grocery store and everything there,” he said of now-defunct Tono.

Don Montgomery, vice president of the South Thurston Historical Society, said the Tenino Depot Museum will soon have new displays of Bucoda and the region’s logging history.

Historian Who Finds Joy Uncovering Tenino's Secrets Identifies First Known Photo of Stone City

To many, the city of Tenino is filled with mystique and enchantment. The town&rsquos swimming pool is an old sandstone quarry. The source of the name &ldquoTenino&rdquo itself is shrouded in myth, with at least three heavily circulated origin stories.

But for Tenino City Historian Richard Edwards, uncovering the secrets of the Stone City only makes his residence there more magical.

Edwards grew up in Tenino and attended Washington State University for his bachelor&rsquos degree in history. He worked in libraries from junior high through college, and went on to earn his master&rsquos degree in librarianship from the University of Washington. He was employed by The Evergreen State College library for 23 years and spent a short time at Northeastern University in Oklahoma before working for the Washington State Library in Tumwater until retirement in 2010.

Edwards is a lifetime member of the South Thurston Historical Society and a member of the Washington State Historical Society. He was appointed to the position of Tenino city historian in 2018 by Mayor Wayne Fournier.

Recently, Edwards has been studying the Tenino Depot Museum&rsquos collection of the earliest known photographs of Tenino. Previously, a photo from 1883 was believed to be the oldest of Tenino. In it, the Tenino hotel and depot are decorated to celebrate the completion of the Northern Pacific Railroad&rsquos transcontinental line.

Research by Edwards uncovered that, in truth, one photo in the museum&rsquos collection is even older.

It depicts four Chinese workers and another man standing on a Northern Pacific Railroad handcart in front of the Tenino Depot while one man leans against the handcart&rsquos wheel and four others stand by the depot, off the tracks. On the back of that photo, a stamp reads &ldquoF. A. Smith&rsquos Gallery&rdquo in Salem, Oregon, and &ldquoHoyt, Photo.&rdquo

Hiram Hoyt, according to Edwards, worked as a photographer in California between 1873 and 1875 before he started his studio in Seattle in 1876. Hoyt then worked in Seattle until 1878 before moving to Texas. Therefore, Edwards believes the photo was taken during Hoyt&rsquos two-year residency in Seattle, between 1876 and 1878. Edwards also observed lamp posts in the 1883 photo are not present in the Hoyt photo, so it is likely they were built after the Hoyt photo was captured.

Few things locally rival the depth of the quarry pool, though the profoundness of Edwards&rsquo passion for historical research is a close contender.

On the subject of Tenino&rsquos name, history buffs before him debunked the most popular theories yet failed to discover the name&rsquos actual source. With the lack of an accurate origin story, myth only continued to circulate.

Finding the true story was the first big project Edwards took on after his appointment. His findings culminated in an entire book called &ldquoThe Naming of Tenino.&rdquo Short answers aren&rsquot his specialty. Though, when speaking with The Chronicle, he graciously summarized.

&ldquoThe short answer is we&rsquore named after a steamboat that operated on the Columbia and Snake rivers and it was named after a Native American band that lived down on the Columbia where the boat was built. So when they built the boat, they named it after that tribe, and the boat was owned by the railroad company who came here and built this depot,&rdquo Edwards said. &ldquoEverybody knew the railroad named us, so it must have something to do with the railroad. And then they just kind of made things up after that.&rdquo

Putting together all the pieces to build his case took Edwards time and effort, but the reward lies in enlightening others to the richness of Tenino&rsquos history. Without his title of city historian, he would not have had access to a lot of the necessary information for his research.

Requesting files from other institutions without the title of city historian, he noted, is a lot more difficult. It adds a layer of professionalism to his projects, and it increases community access to the knowledge he shares. Through the City of Tenino, he has an official website along with a Facebook and email account.

Edwards is Tenino&rsquos first appointed historian, and one of the few city historians in the United States. And now that there has been an official historian, it&rsquos hard to imagine he will be the last.

&ldquoThe next mayor might have an opinion on who should be the historian, and that might or might not be me. And if it wasn&rsquot me, I would be OK with that. And if it was, I&rsquod be OK with that. I think the more historians we have, the better,&rdquo Edwards said.

His work preserves the history of the region, state and country, uncovering long-lost truths about small town America. But the focus, of course, always centers around Tenino, of which he called himself &ldquodefinitely a fan.&rdquo

USS John C. Butler DE-339

Mục lục

Những chiếc thuộc lớp tàu khu trục Evarts có chiều dài chung 289 ft 5 in (88,21 m), mạn tàu rộng 35 ft 1 in (10,69 m) và độ sâu mớn nước khi đầy tải là 8 ft 3 in (2,51 m). Chúng có trọng lượng choán nước tiêu chuẩn 1.140 tấn Anh (1.160 t) và lên đến 1.430 tấn Anh (1.450 t) khi đầy tải. Hệ thống động lực bao gồm bốn động cơ diesel General Motors Kiểu 16-278A nối với bốn máy phát điện để vận hành hai trục chân vịt công suất 6.000 hp (4.500 kW) cho phép đạt được tốc độ tối đa 21 kn (24 mph 39 km/h), và có dự trữ hành trình 4.150 nmi (4.780 dặm 7.690 km) khi di chuyển ở vận tốc đường trường 12 kn (14 mph 22 km/h). [2]

Vũ khí trang bị bao gồm ba pháo 3 in (76 mm)/50 cal trên tháp pháo nòng đơn có thể đối hạm hoặc phòng không, một khẩu đội 1,1 inch/75 caliber bốn nòng và chín pháo phòng không Oerlikon 20 mm. Vũ khí chống ngầm bao gồm một dàn súng cối chống tàu ngầm Hedgehog Mk. 10 (có 24 nòng và mang theo 144 quả đạn) hai đường ray Mk. 9 và tám máy phóng K3 Mk. 6 để thả mìn sâu. [2]

Nguyên được dự định chuyển giao cho Hải quân Hoàng gia Anh, Edward C. Daly được đặt lườn như là chiếc HMS Byard (BDE-17) tại Xưởng hải quân Mare Island, ở Vallejo, California vào ngày 1 tháng 4 năm 1942. Nó được hạ thủy vào ngày 21 tháng 10 năm 1942, và được đỡ đầu bởi bà Diane L. S. McQuilkin. Tuy nhiên kế hoạch chuyển giao bị hủy bỏ, nên con tàu quay trở lại sở hữu của Hoa Kỳ và đổi tên thành Edward C. Daly vào ngày 19 tháng 2 năm 1943. Nó nhập biên chế cùng Hải quân Hoa Kỳ vào ngày 3 tháng 4 năm 1943 dưới quyền chỉ huy của Hạm trưởng, Trung tá Hải quân G. A. Parkinson. [1]

1943 Sửa đổi

Edward C. Daly tiến hành chạy thử máy tại vịnh San Pablo, một nhánh của vịnh San Francisco và là địa điểm của Xưởng hải quân Mare Island, từ ngày 11 tháng 4, 1943. Nó lên đường đi San Diego, California vào ngày 19 tháng 4, và tiếp tục huấn luyện hộ tống vận tải và chống tàu ngầm trong nhiều tuần tiếp theo, phối hợp cùng các tàu khu trục McCook (DD-496) và Rathburne (DD-117), tàu quét mìn Herald (AM-101), các tàu cutter tuần duyên USCGC Morris (WPC-147) và USCGC Perseus (WPC-114) cùng các tàu ngầm S-34 (SS-139) và S-45 (SS-156). [1]

Khởi hành từ San Diego vào ngày 22 tháng 4 để đi sang khu vực quần đảo Hawaii, Edward C. Daly bắt đầu đảm nhiệm hộ tống cho các đoàn tàu vận tải đi lại giữa Trân Châu Cảng và San Francisco. Đây là lần đầu tiên một chiếc tàu khu trục hộ tống ghé đến Trân Châu Cảng, nên nhiều quan chức cao cấp, bao gồm Đô đốc Chester W. Nimitz Tổng tư lệnh Hạm đội Thái Bình Dương và Đô đốc Raymond A. Spruance, đã viếng thăm và thị sát con tàu. Nó tham gia Đoàn tàu 4453, bao gồm tàu chở quân SS Santa Cruz (1941), một tàu LST và 12 tàu buôn để đi San Francisco từ ngày 30 tháng 5 đến ngày 9 tháng 6. Sau đó nó tiếp tục phục vụ tại vùng biển giữa Honolulu và San Francisco, đồng thời phục vụ như tàu huấn luyện sonar tại Trân Châu Cảng. [1]

Edward C. Daly được phái sang khu vực Funafuti thuộc quần đảo Ellice vào ngày 14 tháng 8, hộ tống cho tàu vận tải tấn công Ormsby (APA-49) trên đường đi. Đi đến Fongafale thuộc Funafuti vào ngày 21 tháng 8, nó làm nhiệm vụ hộ tống tàu chiến và tàu buôn tại khu vực cũng như các chuyến khứ hồi đến Trân Châu Châu Cảng. Vào đêm 12 tháng 9, máy bay Nhật không kích Funafuti, gây bất ngờ cho phần lớn tàu chiến tại chỗ, nhưng Edward C. Daly nhanh chóng báo động tác chiến và nổ súng đánh trả trong đêm đó quân Nhật còn tiếp tục không kích thêm ba lượt nữa, cách nhau mỗi đợt khoảng 45 phút, đợt cuối cùng diễn ra lúc 04 giờ 53 phút ngày 13 tháng 9 và kéo dài trong mười phút. Các cuộc không kích đã không thể được phát hiện sớm vì máy bay đối phương tiếp cận từ độ cao 25.000 ft (7.600 m) có tổng cộng 15 máy bay ném bom Nhật Bản đã tham gia cuộc không kích, và cho dù chúng đã gây một số thiệt hại, Edward C. Daly thoát được mà không bị hư hại, và hỏa lực phòng không phía Hoa Kỳ đã bắn rơi một máy bay đối phương. [1]

Vào giữa tháng 9, 1943, Edward C. Daly hộ tống cho nhiều tàu bè tại vị trí khoảng 250 nmi (460 km) về phía đông Bắc đảo Nanomea trước khi chuyển sang khu vực Pago Pago, Samoa thuộc Mỹ. Vào ngày 5 tháng 10, nó đi đến tiếp cứu cho một thủy phi cơ PBY-5A Catalina thuộc Liên đội 13 Thủy quân Lục chiến xuất phát từ Funafuti bị rơi trên biển. Đại úy phi công Paul J. Sax đã đáp chiếc PBY-5 trên mặt biển để cứu vớt đội bay một máy bay khác bị rơi, nhưng ông thiệt mạng khi tìm cách cất cánh máy bay của mình trong khi biển động mạnh. Con tàu đi đến hiện trường lúc 23 giờ 00 khi chiếc Catalina đang cháy, và thả xuồng để tìm kiếm những người sống sót, nó quay trở lại với chín thành viên của các đội bay. Con tàu tạm thời phải ngừng việc tìm kiếm sau khi sonar của nó dò được tín hiệu khả nghi và sau khi mất tín hiệu mục tiêu nó tiếp tục việc tìm kiếm, cứu được thêm bảy người trên biển cùng một thi thể. Nó tìm cách thu hồi chiếc thủy phi cơ, nhưng biển động mạnh làm cho công việc này trở nên rất nguy hiểm. Hải pháo đã đánh chìm chiếc Catalina lúc 03 giờ 30 phút ngày 6 tháng 10, và Edward C. Daly làm nghi thức mai táng trên biển cho Đại úy Sax tại vị trí khoảng 640 nmi (1.190 km) về phía Đông Nam Funafuti. [1]

Edward C. Daly đưa những thành viên đội bay được cứu vớt đến đảo Canton rồi quay trở về Funafuti vào ngày 11 tháng 10. Nó lên đường đi Trân Châu Cảng ngay ngày hôm sau, rồi rời Oahu vào ngày 18 tháng 10 để đi San Francisco nó sáp nhập cùng tàu khu trục Halford (DD-480) và Đoàn tàu 18345 trên đường đi hai ngày sau đó. Đi đến San Francisco vào ngày 27 tháng 10, nó chuyển đến xưởng tàu của hãng Bethlehem Steel để được bảo trì, rồi đi Treasure Island đến 25 tháng 11. Ba ngày sau đó nó khởi hành hướng lên phía Bắc để phục vụ tại khu vực Bắc Thái Bình Dương trên đường đi nó phải chịu đựng thời tiết khắc nghiệt với gió ngược và những cơn sóng cao đến 75 ft (23 m) vào các ngày 29 và 30 tháng 11. Cuối cùng con tàu cũng đến được vịnh Kuluk, Adak, Alaska vào ngày 8 tháng 12. Ngoại trừ một chuyến đi ngắn đến khu vực thực tập tác xạ trong các ngày 23 và 24 tháng 12, nó ở lại cảng cho đến đầu năm 1944. [1]

1944 Sửa đổi

Vào ngày 2 tháng 1, 1944, Edward C. Daly di chuyển đến vịnh Finger, Adak. Nó phát hiện vòm sonar dưới nước bị tách rời, nên phải vào ụ tàu để sửa chữa từ ngày 2 đến ngày 4 tháng 1 trước khi quay trở lại vịnh Kuluk. Nó gia nhập Lực lượng Đặc nhiệm 91 vào ngày 6 tháng 1 cho những hoạt động tại khu vực quần đảo Aleut, bắt đầu bằng việc hộ tống chiếc tàu chở quân Toloa đi từ đảo Attu đến đảo Kiska. [1]

Edward C. Daly dành trọn năm 1944 cho hoạt động hộ tống nhiều tàu hải quân và tàu buôn đi lại giữa các đảo tại khu vực quần đảo Aleut nó cũng phục vụ như tàu khảo sát thời tiết và cột mốc vô tuyến dẫn đường phục vụ cho những cuộc ném bom xuống đảo Paramushiro xuất phát từ Attu. Những cuộc đụng độ với lực lượng đối phương thực sự thì hiếm hoi, nhưng con tàu nhiều lần bước vào báo động tác chiến do nhầm lẫn nhiều dịp radar trên tàu phát hiện máy bay lạ tiếp cận, để rồi nhận ra "mục tiêu" là máy bay Đồng Minh quên bật bộ truy vấn vô tuyến bạn-thù (IFF: identification friend or foe). Lúc 04 giờ 55 phút ngày 24 tháng 3, nó phát hiện qua radar một mục tiêu trên mặt nước, nghi ngờ là tàu ngầm đối phương xâm nhập qua hàng rào phòng thủ, nên báo động tác chiến và tiếp cận mục tiêu. Nó phát tín hiệu vô tuyến truy vấn đối tượng lúc 05 giờ 20 phút, nhưng đối tượng hồi đáp sai mật mã và khi tiếp cận đến tầm nhìn bằng mắt thường, trinh sát viên nhận ra mục tiêu là tàu nổi chứ không phải tàu ngầm. Chiếc tàu khu trục bắt đầu hướng các khẩu pháo vào mục tiêu và truy vấn đối thủ lần cuối cùng qua vô tuyến, để kịp nhận ra "mục tiêu" là chiếc tàu kéo Tatnuck (ATO-27). [1]

Trong một dịp khác vào ngày 13 tháng 4, đang khi hộ tống cho tàu Liberty Carl Schurz và tàu chở dầu Mission Solano đi Dutch Harbor, Alaska, Edward C. Daly dò được tín hiệu sonar ngầm dưới nước, có khả năng là tàu ngầm đối phương. Sonar của con tàu xác định mục tiêu đang di chuyển, nhưng đã tiếp tục cơ động quanh khu vực trong 20 phút để xác nhận mục tiêu, trước khi tấn công với một loạt đạn súng cối chống ngầm Hedgehog. Mục tiêu trôi dạt sang mạn trái, nên con tàu cũng chuyển hướng theo đối tượng nhưng loạt đạn cối Hedgehog lại phát nổ tại độ sâu ước lượng khoảng 475 ft (145 m), ở một khu vực mà hải đồ chỉ ra độ sâu chỉ có 400 ft (120 m). Tàu khu trục Isherwood (DD-520) vốn đang hoạt động lân cận trong một nhiệm vụ khác được phái đến trợ giúp, và Edward C. Daly bàn giao lại đối tượng cho Isherwood để tiếp tục nhiệm vụ hộ tống. Sau khi điều tra, Isherwood xác định Edward C. Daly đã tấn công một dãi đá ngầm dưới đáy biển. Năm ngày sau đó, 18 tháng 4, Edward C. Daly quay trở lại khu vực và tiếp tục phát hiện tín hiệu sonar tương tự, xác nhận giả thuyết trong báo cáo của Isherwood. [1]

1945 Sửa đổi

Vào ngày 13 tháng 1, 1945, Edward C. Daly cùng các tàu chị em Gilmore (DE-18) và Doneff (DE-49) rời khu vực quần đảo Aleut để quay trở về San Francisco. Con tàu được đại tu từ ngày 19 tháng 1 đến ngày 25 tháng 2, rồi ra khơi vào ngày 26 tháng 2 để thử nghiệm sonar ngoài khơi Point Chauncey thuộc vịnh San Francisco. Nó cùng Doneff trong thành phần Đơn vị Đặc nhiệm 6.12.1 lên đường vào ngày 2 tháng 3 để đi Trân Châu Cảng, và trong nữa tháng tiếp theo con tàu hoạt động huấn luyện chống tàu ngầm và tác xạ tại khu vực quần đảo Hawaii. Đến ngày 20 tháng 3, nó cùng Doneff, Engstrom (DE-50) và Austin (DE-15) trong thành phần Đơn vị Đặc nhiệm 19.8.17 lên đường đi Eniwetok thuộc quần đảo Marshall lực lượng sau đó còn có sự tham gia của các tàu thuộc Đội hộ tống 14: Gilmore (DE-18) Clearfield (APA-42) Arenac (APA-128) Windsor (APA-55) J. Franklin Bell (APA-16) General Omar Bundy (AP-152) và Sherburne (APA-205). Hải đội đi đến Eniwetok vào ngày 30 tháng 3. [1]

Edward C. Daly đã phục vụ hộ tống tàu bè đi lại giữa Eniwetok và Guam thuộc quần đảo Mariana trong tháng 4 trước khi chuyển sang hoạt động tại khu vực Saipan. Nó tiếp tục phục vụ hộ tống các đoàn tàu đi lại giữa Saipan và Iwo Jima thuộc quần đảo Kazan, tuần tra chống tàu ngầm tại khu vực phụ cận Saipan đồng thời tìm kiếm và giải cứu những máy bay bị rơi trong khu vực. Nó đã tháp tùng bảo vệ cho tàu sân bay hộ tống Anh Quốc HMS Ranee (D03) đi từ Eniwetok đến Guam từ ngày 5 đến ngày 10 tháng 4. Đang khi hộ tống một đoàn tàu vận tải đi Iwo Jima vào ngày 1 tháng 6, lúc 03 giờ 55 phút trinh sát viên trên tàu nhìn thấy đèn hạ cánh của một máy bay chiếc máy bay ném bom Boeing B-29 Superfortress thuộc Không đoàn XXI Không lực Lục quân Hoa Kỳ bị cháy động cơ và bị buộc phải hạ cánh trên biển bên mạn phải chiếc tàu khu trục hộ tống. Edward C. Daly đã lập tức báo động và chuyển hướng để hoạt động cứu nạn, vớt được sáu thành viên của đội bay hai thành viên đội bay khác được tàu chở dầu Sequatchie (AOG-21) cứu vớt. [1]

Đoàn tàu tiếp tục hành trình đi Iwo Jima, nơi Edward C. Daly được bảo trì từ ngày 3 đến ngày 13 tháng 6. Quay trở lại hoạt động, nó tiếp tục phục vụ hộ tống vận tải tại khu vực giữa Saipan và Iwo Jima, và sau khi chiến dịch Okinawa kết thúc, nó phục vụ hộ tống vận tải cho tàu bè đi đến vịnh Buckner, Okinawa. Trong phần lớn tháng 8, nó tuần tra để phục vụ tìm kiếm và giải cứu tại khu vực về phía Tây Bắc Saipan khoảng 200 nmi (370 km), một vị trí chỉ cách đảo chính quốc Nhật Bản Honshū 1.000 nmi (1.900 km), rồi đến ngày 21 tháng 8 nó quay trở lại nhiệm vụ hộ tống vận tải tại khu vực giữa Saipan và Iwo Jima. [1]

Vào ngày 28 tháng 8, Edward C. Daly cùng với Gendreau (DE-639) hộ tống cho thiết giáp hạm Pennsylvania (BB-38) bị hư hại do trúng bom được các tàu kéo Serrano (ATF-112) và Tenino (ATF-115) kéo quay trở về Guam để sửa chữa họ về đến Guam vào ngày 6 tháng 9. Nó quay trở lại Saipan vào ngày 9 tháng 9, rồi đi đến Guam và ở lại đây cho đến ngày 21 tháng 9 trước khi tuần tra tại khu vực Truk thuộc quần đảo Caroline từ ngày 22 đến ngày 30 tháng 9. [1]

Edward C. Daly tiếp tục ở lại Guam cho đến khi nó thực hành huấn luyện cùng với tàu ngầm Blueback (SS-326) vào ngày 7 tháng 10. Lúc đang trên đường quay trở lại cảng, nó được lệnh đổi hướng lúc 14 giờ 45 phút để tìm kiếm một máy bay ném bom B-29 Superfortress bị rơi trên biển ở về phía Tây Bắc Guam khoảng 334 nmi (619 km). Chiếc máy bay chở theo Chuẩn tướng Không quân Joseph L. Loutzenhiser và ban tham mưu của ông trên đường từ Okinawa và Guam. Công việc tìm kiếm với sự trợ giúp của thủy phi cơ và các tàu chiến kéo dài cho đến ngày 16 tháng 10, cứu được ba thành viên đội bay và tìm thấy thi thể hai người khác, nhưng không thể phát hiện Loutzenhiser cùng bốn người khác. [1]

Edward C. Daly khởi hành từ Guam vào ngày 22 tháng 10 để đi Trân Châu Cảng ngang qua Eniwetok, rồi tiếp tục hành trình để quay trở về Hoa Kỳ. Nó về đến Long Beach, California vào ngày 5 tháng 11, và được cho xuất biên chế tại San Pedro, California vào ngày 20 tháng 12, 1945. Tên nó được cho rút khỏi danh sách Đăng bạ Hải quân vào ngày 1 tháng 1, 1946, và cuối cùng nó bị bán cho hãng Pacific Bridge Co. tại San Francisco để tháo dỡ vào ngày 11 tháng 11, 1946. [2] [1]

Don Juan’s Mexican Kitchen

The legend that would eventually inspire the opening of Don Juan’s Mexican Kitchen in Tenino, was born in 1934 in the small town of Salvatierra in Guanajuato, Mexico.

Maria De La Luz, or Lucha as her family affectionately called her, grew up in a home filled with tantalizing aromas where she quickly developed a deep passion for cooking.

She made it her mission to refine and preserve the authentic Mexican cuisine recipes of her family, while sharing them at her table with loved ones and friends.

Her son Juan married Eva, who shared Señora Lucha’s passion for beautiful food and quickly became her understudy. Spending evening after evening to learn Mexican cuisine magic from the legend herself.

From the art of blending spices and peppers to make a unique salsa to understanding the science behind a perfect Mole… and how to make the world’s best flan, Eva slowly mastered the art Señora Lucha was lovingly teaching her.

This new website is dedicated to the loving memory of Maria De La Luz “Lucha” Moreno De Martinez, who passed on this year and is most likely smiling down on us while cooking up a storm.
