      Two U.S. fleets were covering the invasion beaches—the Third Fleet, under Admiral William F. Halsey, composed mainly of fast new battleships and big carriers; and the Seventh Fleet, commanded by Vice Admiral Thomas C. Kinkaid. made up mostly of pre-Pearl Harbor battlewagons and cruisers. In some cases, 7th Fleet commanders used common sense to carry out their missions while avoiding entanglement in the Chinese civil strife. Kinkaid’s subordinate, Vice Admiral Daniel Barbey, for example, decided that it made no sense to land Marines at the port of Chefoo on the northern coast of the Shandong Peninsula in the face of opposition from local communist forces.

        The following is from the book entitled: "Kinkaid of the Seventh Fleet, A Biography of Admiral Thomas C. Kinkaid, U. S. Navy" by Gerald E. Wheeler. ISBN , page 38 By the end of August, Kinkaid had made all command arrangements. Thomas Cassin Kinkaid (3 April – 17 November ) served as an admiral in the United States Navy during World War II. He built a reputation as a "fighting admiral" in the aircraft carrier battles of and commanded the Allied forces in the Aleutian Islands Campaign.

        “Leave the Bull alone,” he once admonished his staff. “He’s still a fighting admiral in my book.” As usual, once the Leyte beaches were secure and the enemy dealt with, the naval units on loan to the Seventh Fleet sailed away, leaving the forces commanded by Admiral Kincaid and General MacArthur greatly diminished. Senior officers in 7th Fleet (including Kinkaid and his staff) generally assumed Halsey was taking his three available carrier groups northwards (McCain's group, the strongest in 3rd Fleet, was still returning from the direction of Ulithi), but leaving the battleships of TF 34 covering the San Bernardino Strait against the Japanese Center Force.
