Transcript Volume I * .. s. s... 0 .. 5-.- 0.. * Enroute San Pedro, California Number XI KNOWING THE NAVY This week we bring to the fore, in our Navy's history as a babe, some facts relative to the part the Naval forces played in the war with Mexico, in 1846. • • • As soon as the War with Mexico began, in 1846, the U. S. Navy im­mediately took possession of Monter­ey, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, and within one month the U. S. Flag was flying over every commanding position in California. • • • Early in the Mexican War the Mexi­cans recaptured Los Angeles from the U. S. Naval Forces, but a combined force of soldiers, sailors and marines quickly marched from San Diego and after a two- days battle made U. S. authority in California permanent. • • • The chief work of the U. S. Navy in the War with Mexico was the bloc­ade and seizure of the Mexican ports on the Gulf of Mexico, the trans­portation of troops to Vera Cruz and assistance in the · a. tta. ck on Vera Cruz. - I~ the attack on Vera Cruz by U. S. Army and Navy forces during the War with Mexico, the Navy covered the landing of the Army and landed 10,000 troops in a single day. * * * The first American Man- of- war to round the Horn and enter the Pacific was the frigate ESSEX. She was also the first American man- of- war to round the Cape of Good Hope. * * * The first vessel to fly the Stars and Stripes was the 18- gun RANGER whose captain was John Paul Jones. ONE MORE RUNG The following men were advanced to the next higher rating and our heartiest congratulations are offered.

NEW DEAL IN THE NAVY The coming year is going to see the possibility of making the Navy a career, a reality. With numerous new ships being constructed, replacements and turnover of personnel is bound to result in a larger complement. Rates are no longer going to be stale­mated, and with honest effort ad­vancement in rating should, under ordinary circumstances, be rapid. Many rates in all branches are to be open for advancement during the coming year, and men are advised to complete the necessary educational courses in order that they may be eligible for advancement.
