Cities (市 shì ''or'' 省轄市 shĕngxiáshì): Chiayi, Hsinchu, and Keelung ''Agerholm'' began her next deployment in January 1966 when she departed San Diego for Vietnam. There, her assigned duties included Naval Gunfire Support (NGFS), anti-submarine warfare (ASW), carrier escort, and search and rescue (SAR). In May during NGFS off the South Vietnamese coast, ''Agerholm'' provided call fire for a Marine Corps (United States Marine Corps) air spotter who was drawing

heavy gunfire. The destroyer silenced the Viet Cong machinegun nest with just four rounds from her 5 inch (127 mm) guns. On 17 June ''Agerholm'' aided a South Vietnamese patrol boat and took off 12 badly wounded men while on a SAR mission in the Gulf of Tonkin. The ship visited Subic Bay, Yokosuka, Kaohsiung, Hong Kong and Pearl Harbor before returning to San Diego in July. After conducting patrols in the western Pacific (Pacific Ocean) while en route to Hawaii, ''Taylor'' entered Pearl Harbor on 8 December. Following a month of leave and upkeep, she entered the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard for a month of repairs. For the next three months, she conducted shakedown training in the Hawaiian Islands in order to integrate her replacements with the rest of the crew. On 2 May 1953, the warship exited Pearl Harbor to deploy to the western Pacific again. She reached Yokosuka on 12 May and, after visiting that port and Sasebo (United States Fleet Activities Sasebo), put to sea to join a carrier task group built around USS ''Bairoko'' (USS Bairoko (CVE-115)) (CVE-115) and HMS ''Ocean'' (HMS Ocean (R68)) (R68) off the western coast of Korea. For the most part, she screened the carriers during air operations; however, on two occasions, she patrolled close to the enemy-held shoreline to discourage the North Koreans from attempting to take offshore islands held by United Nations forces. She returned to Sasebo on 1 June for 11 days of upkeep before heading for Okinawa and two weeks of antisubmarine warfare (ASW) training. On 25 June, ''Taylor'' returned to Japan at Yokosuka, but she departed again almost immediately for duty with the Taiwan Strait Patrol. During that assignment, she visited Hong Kong once again as well as Kaohsiung, where she trained sailors of the Republic of China Navy. The escort destroyer returned to Yokosuka on 20 July and, after two days of voyage repairs, departed the Far East. She arrived in Pearl Harbor on 31 July and, the following day, entered the naval shipyard there for a three-month overhaul. **Makung - Makung Airport **Kaohsiung - Kaohsiung International Airport **Kinmen - Kinmen Airport ** Chiayi (Chiayi Airport) ** Kaohsiung (Kaohsiung International Airport) '''Hub''' ** Kinmen (Kinmen Airport) The '''National Kaohsiung Normal University''' (NKNU, Commons:Category:Kaohsiung Wikipedia:Kaohsiung Dmoz:Regional Asia Taiwan Localities Kaohsiung City
