USS Walker (DD-163/ YW-57/ DCH-1/ IX-44)

USS Walker (DD-163/ YW-57/ DCH-1/ IX-44) was a Wickes class destroyer that had a very short career and was later considered for a variety of alternative roles, before being scrapped without performing any of them.

The Walker (DD-163) was named after John Grimes Walker, a US naval officer during the American Civil War who served in the river campaigns.

The Walker was laid down by the Fore River Shipbuilding Co on 19 June 1918, launched on 14 September 1918 and commissioned on 31 January 1919. Her first task was to escort the George Washington as it carried President Woodrow Wilson back from Paris. She then joined Division 18, Destroyer Force and joined the fleet in the Caribbean in March 1919.

In April the Walker returned to New York, ready to help support the first successful transatlantic flight, which was completed by the Navy Curtiss Flying Boat NC-4. She was posted at Trepassy Bay from 6-8 May, then from 10-17 May served as one of the picket ships that lined the route, taking up a position next to USS Crosby (DD-164).

In the summer of 1919 the Walker was transferred to the Pacific, passing through the Panama Canal on 24 July 1919. After visiting Acapulco she moved to her new base at San Diego. After a few months operating with the Pacific Fleet, she was placed into the Reserve Destroyer Flotilla late in 1920. She was used on a naval reservist cruiser on 27 October 1920, but otherwise spent her time in the rotating reserve, emerging for occasional exercises. She was decommissioned on 7 June 1922, and this ended her brief active career.

The Walker was actually struck off the Navy List on 28 March 1938, and was going to be sold for scrap, but she was temporarily saved when the Navy decided to convert her into a water barge. She entered the Mare Island Navy Yard, where her engines were removed, and on 1 April 1939 she was redesignated as YW-57 (YW standing for Water Barge).

After the outbreak of war in Europe the Navy decided to use her as a damage control hulk instead. She saw some use in this role, and was used to help develop new damage control techniques from her new home at the Destroyer Base, San Diego. On 11 July 1940 she was redesignated as DCH-1.

On 17 February 1941 she was redesignated as IX-44 (IX standing for 'unclassified miscellaneous). Plans were put in place to tow her to Hawaii, the new fleet base, but she was still at San Diego when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. In the aftermath of the attack the Navy had more than enough damaged warships at Hawaii, and so the Walker was taken to sea and scuttled on 28 December 1941.

The first USS Walker (DD-163) was a Wickes class destroyer that saw service in the United States Navy during World War I. She was named for Admiral John Grimes Walker.

Walker was laid down on 19 June 1918 at Quincy, Massachusetts, by the Fore River Shipbuilding Company under contract from Bethlehem Steel Co. launched on 14 September 1918 sponsored by Mrs. Francis Pickering Thomas and commissioned at the Boston Navy Yard on 31 January 1919 with Lieutenant Commander Harold A. Waddington in command.

Walker got underway on 20 February to rendezvous with transport George Washington as it returned from France with President Woodrow Wilson. Upon completion of this duty, the new destroyer returned to Boston, where she was soon assigned to Division 18, Destroyer Force. She proceeded to Newport, Rhode Island, and loaded her full allotment of torpedoes at the Naval Torpedo Station. She sailed for the West Indies on 6 March and, soon after her arrival in the Caribbean fell into the Fleet's regular schedule of exercises and maneuvers. Walker conducted tactical exercises off San Juan, Puerto Rico, and gunnery exercises out of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, into the late winter and early spring of 1919 before she headed north.

After steaming into New York harbor on 14 April, the destroyer was sent to her base at Newport, R.I. Early the next month, she supported the Navy's NC-boat transatlantic flights. Initially stationed at Trepassy Bay from 6 May to 8 May, she later operated at sea from the 10th to the 17th, serving as one of the chain of picket ships to provide the NC flying boats with position reports and bearings. When this mission was completed, she returned to Newport on the 20th.

After calling at Annapolis in early June for a two-day visit during Naval Academy graduation exercises, Walker headed south and transited the Panama Canal on 24 July. She called briefly at Acapulco, Mexico, for two days before steaming for southern California, arriving at Coronado on 8 August.

Based at San Diego, Walker conducted local operations off the west coast into late 1919, when she was assigned to the Reserve Destroyer Flotilla. She embarked naval reservists for an indoctrination cruise on 27 October 1920 and remained in "rotating reserve" duty, conducting periodic target practices, full-power runs, and undergoing overhauls at the Mare Island Navy Yard. Decommissioned on 7 June 1922, as part of an austerity program, Walker was placed in reserve at San Diego, where she remained into the 1930s.

After 16 years on "Red Lead Row," the ship was struck from the Navy list on 28 March 1938 and slated for disposal by sale. Logistics requirements of west coast naval districts, however, resulted in the former destroyer being placed back on the list and earmarked for conversion to a water barge. Redesignated YW-57 on 1 April 1939, the ship was undergoing conversion at the Mare Island Navy Yard when the Navy again decided to change the vessel's role. With the outbreak of war in Europe and the possibility of American involvement in the conflict, the ship was slated for use as a damage control hulk.

Designated DCH-1 on 11 July 1940, the vessel was based at the Destroyer Base, San Diego, and used for training exercises in formulating and evolving new damage control techniques. In the following year, as the Pacific Fleet's base had been moved from San Diego to Pearl Harbor, plans were made to tow DCH-1 (which had been stripped of propulsion machinery during the initial conversion work to YW-57) to the Hawaiian Islands. On 28 December 1941, damage control hulk DCH 1 (IX-44), formerly destroyer Walker (DD-163), while being towed from San Diego, California, to Pearl Harbor, by oiler USS Neches (AO-5), was cast adrift and scuttled by gunfire from Neches at 26°35′N 143°49′W.

At the start of the Second World War, Walker is a part of the Asiatic Fleet, the backwater of the United States Navy comprised largely of other outmoded warships like herself. On March 1 1942, in the Second Battle of the Java Strait, the asiatic fleet is attacked by a sizeable Japanese force including a massive battlecruiser, the HIMS Amagi. The Japanese sink three of the Walker's allies and damage her sister vessel USS Mahan, and the two destroyers escape the Japanese by fleeing into a storm squall. Upon emerging from the storm, the destroyers consolidate their losses, but the crew of Mahan mutinies and leaves Walker on her own.

The squall had transported them to the alternate Earth and the Walker eventually comes in touch with the residents of the foreign universe. They encounter the Lemurian Home, Salissa, being attacked by six Grik frigates. Walker reluctantly engages the Grik after one of the frigates breaks off to board the destroyer. The American ship annihilates the primitive wooden ships and clears Salissa's decks of the vile reptiles. The Walker's medical team tends to the Lemurian wounded and they discover that some Lemurians know Latin from another human interaction centuries before.

Walker ans Slaissa sail to Baalkpan and gain the favor of the tentative Lemurians with the demonstration of their power as well as their technology and medicine. Captain Reddy wants to learn more of the Grik before he makes any final decisions. The new allies set a trap for the last of the Grik they had previously encountered and capture one of their frigates. Walker officials joins the new war when they discover human remains on board the enemy ship as well as maps which reveal the full extent of the massive Grik Empire.

Captain Reddy travels to various Lemurian city states, recruiting them for the war effort whilst building ever more advanced weapons for the once peaceful Lemurians. The gain the support of a number of seagoing Homes, each of which is a sovereign city state, as well as ports like Maa-ni-la in the Filipins (Philippines).

They soon learn of a Grik invason in the island nations of Aryaal and Bm'baado. Walker leads an army of inexperienced Lemurian marines and then mauls the entire Grik fleet with little contest. They also reunite with Mahan, which had already joined in the defense of the cities. Once the Grik Swarm is defeated, negotiations begin to enlist the two rival nations' support in the war effort.

Aryaal and Bm'baado eventually find they have no choice but to join the Alliance when it is discovered that an even larger Grik Swarm is on the way to retake the ctiy states and squash the Americans.


Walker's sister ship, USS Mahan DD-102

The evacuation of Aryaal and Bm'baado is under way and Walker remains behind while Revenge, a captured Grik frigate is sent to spy on the advancing fleet. They learn that the force is being led by none other than the battlecruiser Amagi and her psychotic captain, Hisashi Kurokawa. Revenge is crushed by the hundreds of advancing Grik and Walker steams back to Baalkpan with several Homes fll of refugees. The Grik fleet catches up to the walker and Amagi shows its firepower by demolishing an equally massive Home. Walker takes on the ships hundreds of refugees and successfully pulls off a sneak attack on Amagi with the last of her torpedoes, forcing her to retreat back to Aryaal and Bm'baado before attacking Baalkpan.

Once Amagi is repaired though, the Grik meet the full force of the allies defending the city and Walker and Mahan go toe to toe with the colossal battleship. Walker is fatally wounded but Mahan saves the day by ramming the Japanese ship. Admiral Kurokawa escapes from the sinking ship with the retreating Grik and Walker just manages to pull into the shallows of the bay before sinking to the bottom. The allies decide Walker is more than just a ship, she is a symbol, a legend and it simply would not be the same without her at the head of their fleet. They decide that they can repair using the same techniques as building a Home and repair her using steel from the wreck of the Amagi.

Walker is temporarily replaced by the newly built USS Donaghy as the Allies flagship.

Corrupt fugitives from another human nation, The New British Empire have escaped with Captain Reddy's fiance as well as the princess Rebecca, who had been by the Americans after being marooned with the crew of a submarine from the old world. Captain Reddy is furious, but is convinced to wait for Walker's repairs before steaming off across the Pacific Ocean after the criminals.


Specs of the resurrected ship

Walker travels to the New British Isles in search of the fugitives, only to be absorbed in foreign politics when the Americans discover that the government is rapant with corruption. Elements in the government have been aiding an enemy nation, the Holy Dominion, and the Walker thwarts the ensuing invasion during the battle of Scapa flow.

In the end, the missing parties form the Walker's crew and the princess are all accounted for anyway.

Walker leads the East Fleet to drive the Holy Dominion out of the Galapagos Islands, but they discover they have their own air superiority in the form of Grik like flying dinosaurs. Captain Reddy hesitates in the invasion before they have a method of countering the hostile "dragons."

They discover the creatures have a powerful metabolism and are especially susceptible to smoke as it will contaminate their lungs. After disposing the dragons they defeat the Dom fleet and head back to the New British Isles.

Returning to the Western Pacific, home, the crew learns of a new threat in the form of a rogue Japanese destroyer from the old world, the HIMS Hidoiame. The new comer has been indiscriminately raiding Lemurian settlements and allied ships for several months. She is far superior to the old fashioned Walker. She's bigger, faster, has better defense, bigger guns, and she has as much fuel as she could possibly with her own oiler ship.

An allied ship taps the Hidoiame into close range to be able to attack the destroyer. Hidoiame destroys the attacking ship but not before her oiler is sunk as well, leaving her with more limited fuel, but also making her crew that much more cautious. Walker's the only ship in the world that can deal with the threat so she chases after Hidoiame.

They finally meet in the Formossa Strait in the Filpin Islands. The Japanese destroyer ignores Walker's orders to surrender. In the ensuing fight Captain Reddy is wounded leaving command of the ship temporarily to his exec Brad MacFarlane. Hidoiame is severely damaged herself but can still fight, so MacFarlane calls off the attack while leaving Hidoiame to presumably sink. The damaged Walker sails to the Lemurian port Maa-ni-la for repairs.

Speed: 35 Knots
Crew: 112 including Lemurians

After being repaired yet again in Maa-ni-la, Walker is in better shape than she been since the Old World. They steam back to Baalkpan and reunite with a newly refloated Mahan. Captain Reddy outlines his plan to take the fight the Grik by leading a raid on the Homeland of Madagascar. First however, they need to defeat their old nemesis Kurokawa, who has made himself the ruler of Grik India. Kurokawa is driven out of the region by the Allied armies in the Battle of Madras. The Admirals fleet consists of some brand new battlecruiser of his own, and several massive ironclads easily as powerful as the Amagi had been. Walker and Mahan intercept the fleet and lay waste to three of the colossal battleships with their brand new torpedoes. Unfortunately, they don't know that Kurokawa had not been on any of the battleships, so he escapes yet again and a stray torpedo accidently hits Mahan. Walker tows her sister back to Baalkpan for more repairs, but the success of the Battle of Madras inspires the Allies to launch their raid on Madagascar.

While leading the fleet to Madagascar, the USS Walker encountered a sonar anomaly. Thinking nothing of it,she ran into a U-Boat from an unknown faction. The destroyer neutralized the submarine with her depth charges then continued on her way to Madagascar. Upon arrival, Walker, along with a squadron of small torpedo boats, infiltrated the harbor of the Griks' capital city under the cover of night and annihilated the entire defending fleet. However what was meant to be a raid turns into a full scale battle and the invasion of Madgascar began. While trying to leave the harbor, the Walker inadvertantly beached herself on a sand bar. As the tide retreated, the defending Grik soldiers swarmed the beachhead near the ship while the crew set up barricades along the deck rail. Air support wouldn't arrive for several hours due to a series of severe logistical disasters. Thus, the crew was forced to defend the destroyer from wave after wave of the vicious dromeosaurs. Before the Wlaker could be rescued, the bosun, Fitshugh Gray, and over one hundred lemurian marines died in defense of the ship. This was among the most intense fighting of the entire war, and it left the destroyer in a more severe condition since the Battle of Baalkpan.

The chart above shows the buildup to 120 ships as decommissioned hulls were returned to active duty. It also shows the increasing and changing number of conversions and then declining totals due to losses and retirements.

The chart linked from the tab above gives details for each ship in original destroyer hull number order.

By 17 October 1941, while 19 hulls had been placed back in commission, 30 additional ships had been modified for a total of 48: eight minelayers, eighteen minesweepers, fourteen seaplane tenders and six fast transports plus test ship Semmes (AG 24, ex-DD 189) at the Key West Sound School and damage control hulk Walker (DCH 1, ex-YW 57, ex-DD 163) at San Diego. Seventy-two retained their designations as destroyers.

実を言うと、ヘッドハンターが若手ビジネスパーソンの情報を集めるのはかなり大変なんです。エグゼクティブ層はさまざまな場面で顔と名前が出ているので情報を得やすいのですが、実務層である若手はそうはいきません。私たちのもとに情報が入るのは、社内での人間関係を前向きに築いて信頼を得ている人。その企業のエグゼクティブやミドル層からヘッドハンターに情報が寄せられることもあるんです。また、ヘッドハンティングされて他社へ移る役員が「ぜひ連れていきたいメンバーがいる」と希望することもあります。

受け入れる企業も人間関係を築く力は必ず重視するので、どんなに魅力的な能力・スキル・実績を持っていても、周囲との人間関係において常に「難」がある人には声をかけづらいですね。組織の和を重視し、人間関係をおろそかにしない人には、チャンスが巡ってくる可能性が大いにあると思います。

——最近では働き方改革が叫ばれ、副業容認に舵を切る企業も増えてきています。若手ビジネスパーソンは「1社でキャリアを磨く」べきか「複数社でキャリアを磨く」べきか、どちらが有効だとお考えですか?

武元:私の肌感覚ですが、現状では1社で真摯にキャリアを築いていく人のほうが評価されると考えます。アプリケーションを磨くには副業はとてもいいことだと思いますが、人間関係を重視するOSでマイナスにつながるようなら、あまりおすすめはできないですね。必ずしも副業がだめだと言うことではなく、人間関係やOSを大切にできているかどうかが常にベースにあるべきだということです。関係構築にはそれなりの時間を割く必要があります。また役職を与えられると、メンバーや各部署とのコミュニケーション頻度が増し、時間的な制約も出てきます。「企業の内部情報管理」という視点も必要です。業界や職種によってはいいかもしれませんが、どこかで限界が生じるのではないでしょうか。

一方で、創造的思考力を磨いていくという意味では、副業は有効だと思います。社内はもちろん、同業種や異業種を含めてさまざまな人脈を広げようとしている人は、自然と新たなインプットを得て創造的思考力が磨かれていきます。既存の会社で「あまり評価されていない」と感じる人が、「よりOSの合う場所」を求めて、社外に関係性を築いていくのもいいでしょう。ただ、これは副業に限ったことではありませんよね。趣味や余暇、社会貢献活動にも可能性はあります。

実際の転職市場では、創造的・論理的両方の思考力を求められるケースも往々にしてあります。そもそも、「創造的」「論理的」というのは対立概念ではないんです。ベースとなる論理的思考力があって、その上に創造的思考力が重なっていく。ふとしたことに疑問や好奇心を持ち、さまざまな場所に首を突っ込んでみることも必要だと思います。

一見無関係に思えることも、積み重ねによって創造的思考力を鍛え、イノベーションを生む源泉になっていきます。人間関係をおろそかにせず、今ある日常を大切にすることが、実はキャリアアップへのいちばんの近道でもあるのです。
