Book Description: This is the first book of four in the USS HOQUIAM PF-5 series: RESURRECTION, ROAD TO HUNGNAM, HOCKY MARU, and KNOCK OFF SHIP'S WORK. It is the continuing story of the USS HOQUIAM PF-5 as seen through the eyes of a young sailor, Lee Harrison Stewart. RESURRECTION is the story of restoring an old ship to active duty. As the Korean War begins, the Hoquiam is a rusting hulk in Yokosuka, Japan, Inner Harbor awaiting sale to other nations or to the scrap heap. Suddenly, there is a vital need for anything that floats to help the US Army and ROK Army in South Korea. Lee Stewart joins the pre-commissioning crew to prepare the ship for war. Resurrection ends when the crew is ready to commission the ship. ROAD TO HUNGNAM begins at the Hoquiam commissioning ceremony. Unexpectedly, the Hoquiam is ordered to Wonsan, North Korea for a couple of weeks and ends up staying along the East Coast of North Korea until December 24th at the end of the Hungnam Redeployment. The Hoquiam is ordered back to Yokosuka as this story ends New Year's Eve, 1950. HOCKY MARU begins the next day in Yokosuka. The Hoquiam is ordered to Sasebo as a Service Force non-combatant. After a brief period, the Hoquiam returns to the North Korean coast, continuing its war effort. KNOCK OFF SHIP'S WORK continues the Hocky Maru story. The crew fires hundreds of rounds of ammunition at Chinese Communist and North Korean forces. Abruptly, the crew is broken up and transferred to other duties as the Hoquiam is sold to the South Korean Navy as the ROKN Naktong PF65. While all this has been going on, we also follow Lee Harrison's romantic adventures in the US and Japan.
