(The following excerpts are taken from the 1953 USS Helena CA-75 Cruise Book. Title--1953 Review)

On August 4, 1953 we put to sea; destination: Yokosuka, Japan, and our fourth tour of duty in the Far East since 1950.
We were the first cruiser to make that many tours over there during the Korean deal.
