ARL 14 USS MINOS THE USS MINOS (ARL 14) is a repair ship for landing type vessels built as the LST 644 by the Chicago Bridge Iron Company, Seneca, 111., in August 1944 and converted by Gibbs Gas Engine Co., Jacksonville, Florida in 1945 by the installation of several repair shops and storerooms on the tank deck, main deck and superstructure deck. Additional weight lifting, steam and electrical generating equipment were also installed during the conversion. The LST characteristics such as length, breadth, and speed remained unchanged and are approximately; Length 328 ft.; Breadth 50 ft.; and speed 10 knots. The USS MINOS was named from the Greek Mythological King of Crete, a great lawgiver said to have been the son of Jupiter and Europa, who, after his death became one of the great Judges of dead souls. The USS MINOS was first commissioned on 26 September 1944 and served in both the Atlantic and Pacific Fleets until she was decommissioned in the Atlantic Reserve Fleet at Green Cove Springs, Florida in June 1947. She was recommissioned 22 Sep- tember 1950 and assigned to the Amphibious Forces, U. S. Atlantic Fleet. Since being recommissioned the USS MINOS (ARL 14) has operated at the U. S. Naval Amphibious Base, at Little Creek, Virginia. The major portion of the time per- forming repair services to vessels of Landing Ship Flotilla TWO. She participated in Fleet Exercises in the Caribbean in the fall of 1951 and other routine exercises in the Chesapeake Bay- Virginia Capes Area. USS MINOS ARL14 First row: David P.

She was converted to her present duties four short months later by the Gibbs Gas Engine Company at Jacksonville, Florida. After commissioning as a repair ship on 31 May 1945, the PROSERPINE did a tour of duty in the Philippine Islands and up on returning to the United States was decommissioned at New Orleans, Louisiana on 18 January 1947. After spending three and one-half years in mothballs at Green Cove Springs, Florida, she was recommisisioned on 27 October 1950 and became a member of the U. S. At- lantic Fleet. The main function of the PROSERPINE and her crew is to keep in repair the ships of Landing Ship Flotilla Two which have been assigned to her. All hands aboard have shown the greatest willingness to work at any hour with the main idea being to get the job done in the best manner possible. The officers and men of the PROSERPINE were rewarded for their efforts when Vice Admiral Fahrion, Commander Amphibious Force, U. S. Atlantic Fleet, presented the PROSERPINE the Amphibious Force Battle Efficiency Award for 1952 as being the best of her type in the Amphibious Force of the U. S. Atlantic Fleet. In addition to her regular repair work the PROSERPINE has participated in Fleet maneuvers in the Caribbean Sea repairing damage that occurred during such exercises. Liberty calls have been made at St. Thomas, Puerto Rico and Bermuda. Many members of the crew have taken an active part in the athletic program aboard. In the short time since recommissioning, the ship has won rwo Softball and one football championship. Come what may in the future, whether it be to repair some badly damaged ship on a fleet exercise or to replace a radio tube in a radio while at her pier in her home port, the PROSERPINE will always be ready as she has in the past.

EASLEY Commanding Officer USS GORDIUS THE USS GORDIUS (ARL 36) has been designated a repair ship for landing craft, although in a more general sense she stands ready to give service to all components of the fleet. She was built by the Chicago Bridge and Iron Works, Shipbuilding Division, Seneca, Illinois, and on 18 May 1945, was commissioned as LST 1145. The conversion to an ARL was completed 14 September 1945, making her displacement 4000 tons, her length 328 feet. During her first year, the GORDIUS operated for several months in the Guantanamo Bay area and then to the Amphibious Bases at Little Creek and Annapolis-Baltimore area. Upon each successive year the GORDIUS took her part in the operations in the Caribbean, followed by repair assignments at Little Creek. From June through August of 1952, the GORDIUS, as part of operation Sunac, made the hazardous voyage to Thule, Greenland, within 900 miles of the North Pole. Floating ice took its toll and the crew of the GORDIUS was called upon to perform extensive underwater hull repairs in the icy water off Greenland. Whi le at Thule, the GORDIUS baseball team won the ' Top of The World Series " tournament and the mounted Narwahl tusk as a trophy of victory. More recently the GORDIUS has returned from the Caribbean to resume her repair schedule at Little Creek. At present the GORDIUS, as senior tender among the ARL ' s at Little Creek, performs all those services and repairs to landing craft which can feasibly be done without the facilities of a shipyard. r USS GORDIUS ARL36 as: First row: George B.

THE USS KRISHNA (ARL 38) was built by the Chicago Bridge and Iron Works, Seneca, Illinois. She was launched on 25 May 1945 and was commissioned on 3 De- cember 1945. Like the other ships in her class the KRISHNA is a converted LST; it was originally designated LST 1149. However, she never saw service as an LST as it was converted to an ARL soon after being built. The KRISHNA reported to the At- lantic Fleet on 1 February 1946 and was assigned to the Amphibious Force for duty. The KRISHNA is designated a Repair Ship, the letter designatioa is ARL, the number is of course a further designation within the class. The word KRISHNA is derived from Hindu mythology with the meaning " the seventh carnation of the God Vishnu. " LT BURTON was the commanding officer of the KRISHNA from her commissioning date to early in 1947, he was relieved as commanding officer by LCDR PARLIER who remained in command until 11 July 1949, at which time he was relieved by LCDR H. C. BROWN. While the KRISHNA was under the command of LCDR BROWN, she participated in Operation Blue Jay 1951, this was the initial phase of the estab- lishment of the great air base at Thule, Greenland. During this Operation the KRISHNA received five letters of commendation for repair work accomplished beyond the call. For this she earned the name of " The Can Do Ship " . LCDR BROWN was relieved in January 1952 by the present Commanding Officer LCDR G. W. PRUE. In addition to Operation Blue Jay, the KRISHNA has participated in numerous Amphibious operations.
