By Earl Brannock
Americans have been a seafaring people, since before the first Jamestown and Plymouth settlements, as British ships plied the Atlantic conducting coastal trade. It is no wonder then that, even when a small nation, the U. S. Navy proved itself a force to be reckoned with. This tradition continues, as the United States deploys the strongest naval forces in the world. Over three centuries, thousands of American warships and their crews, manning both commissioned vessels and privateers, have helped defend liberty at home and fought for freedom abroad. This monograph describes three of those belligerents, all named CHESTER, all of which achieved sterling records of valiant service. The first CHESTER, an armed galley, fought during the American Revolution, as part of the Continental Navy. Fittingly, it was sponsored by the Maryland Colony, a shipping powerhouse, even during the eighteenth century, and named after its construction location, Chestertown, Maryland. Author Brannock also hails from Maryland and a seafaring heritage. Another CHESTER, a light cruiser, did not emerge until just prior to World War I. It was also named after its mid-Atlantic shipbuilding town, Chester, Pennsylvania. Its crews served in the Great War, mostly on convoy duty, during the submarine warfare engaged in with German U-boats. The third USS CHESTER (CA-27), also a light cruiser, was commissioned in 1930, and also named after Chester, Pennsylvania. Brannock’s account of the duties it performed during the interwar years provides a unique portrayal of life as a U. S. Navy sailor at that time. Political upheavals in nations where American citizens and interests had to be protected were prevalent in Central America, and diplomatic and military missions were carried out, while an arms race engulfed Europe. Moreover, during the glamorous 1930s, millions traveled on ocean-going liners and so naval vessels were greeted in foreign ports by enthusiastic crowds and celebrations. CHESTER crews were feted on two continents. Yet as the decade went on, war clouds darkened, world-wide. By 1941, the United States was in a quasi-war with Germany on the Atlantic Ocean, and Americans in Asia were threatened by Japanese occupation. USS CHESTER steamed into Pearl Harbor naval base in the early afternoon of December 7, 1941, missing the brunt of the early morning Japanese bombings, due to delays caused by a storm at sea. From that day on, CHESTER was active in nearly every major engagement in the Pacific Theater, during World War II. Legendary officers like William “Bull” Halsey commanded CHESTER’s units. Adm. Arleigh Burke served on CHESTER. By 1943, author Brannock had joined the crew as a young enlisted sailor, but one who had logged many hours underway, while serving in the Maryland State Fishery Force. Thus, as a quartermaster on CHESTER’s bridge, Brannock had a gull’s eye view of the battles. His perspective was enhanced by the fact that CHESTER often served as flagship for Cruiser Division 5 and various task forces to which it was temporarily assigned. For these obvious reasons, the account of USS CHESTER’s World War II service comprises the bulk of this book. Because Brannock personally collected the ship’s archives and memoirs, the work offers an unequaled, first-hand and official rendition of the war service of one ship, its officers, and crew. Although thousands of books have been written on World War II, most cover broader subject matter; so small technical and tactical details can be lost. But readers miss little with this tract. So sail along on a riveting ride across two centuries, two oceans, and four continents in this spirited tale of life, duty, and combat on board three American warships, all named CHESTER.

To Serve Is To Honor To honor one’s country. To honor one’s family. To honor one’s fellow man, and to honor one’s faith. These are the qualities of the people represented in this work. A Small Town’s Contribution was written to pay tribute to ‘The Greatest Generation’, whose willingness to put themselves in harm’s way, and to sacrifice themselves for the benefit of others, paved the way for the rest of us to enjoy the freedoms we do. The citizens of Platte, South Dakota served honorably, alongside their brethren, and deserve to be remembered. These pages reflect a sampling of stories from Platte residents who served in the Armed Forces during World War II.

As we left the terminal and looked around in the dimly lit surroundings, we saw a lot of cars parked out there at the curb. Most of them were taxis, but right out front were a half dozen shiny black four-door sedans with a chauffeur standing outside each one. These guys were trying to get our attention and motioning us over. We went right out to one of them and he put out his sales pitch. “ Very nice hotel,” he said in his broken English, bowing a little with each sentence. “ Stay all nights. Free ride. Very Nice. Bring you back to airport. “Without saying anything, we glanced at each other and got into the back seat.

War does not determine who is right—only who is left. —Bertrand Russell What is it that truly makes a person great? This has been a question both throughout and for the ages. In modern society, greatness is often measured in terms of wealth, power, knowledge, and achievement. Wealth and power can be so fleeting in life and should never truly and totally define an individual’s greatness. Educational achievement is an attainment and accumulation of knowledge, facts, theories, and career training. Education is good. It can be valuable, but it should only be considered as one of the many tools in the toolbox of life. There have been many great people throughout history who have gone on to achieve and perform great feats in their life with little to no education. Wealth, power, and education can all be used for good and or for evil. The history of man clearly bears this out.
