Sherman arrived at the US naval station one, they, Cuba, on 30 March, to begin a week of undue weight training in ASW operations. One, was not a new site for the majority of us who had just been there 1 1/2 months earlier. It was not a new routine for us to be set up at 04 30 to begin a long day of training.
Each day from reveille until late in the evening was full of work and very little relaxation. These weeks at Guantánamo gave us a small taste of what was to come in the next few months.
Combat Information Center was the main center of activity, with Sherman's son Herman demonstrating to the Navy are proficiency in anti-Submarine Warfare. Our sonar equipment and ASW team performed superbly and earned for the Sherman the COMEASTATEA "E" for excellence. on our departure from Guantánamo, the Sherman Conley displayed her "E", which was earned with much determination and hard teamwork from the bridge wings.
