IBI. ' :rr-- Vr-Tj . ' - . v ._! - ' •- • » ■s«| « ? uss ACADIA (AD-42) uss ACADIA (AD-42) is the first ship to bear the name. As a destroyer tender, ACADIA provides materials and mobile facilities for ships requir- ing service or repair inport or at sea. Specially designed to assist the DD- 963 class destroyers, CGN class cruis- ers and FFG-7 class frigates, ACADIA can also serve any ship of the fleet. ACADIA ' S talented Repair Depart- ment can accomplish all services re- quired, including most of the sup- port available at shore based main- tenance activities. Large doors per- mit easy access to ships alongside. A dozen small craft are available to transfer material and personnel to nearby ships. Four huge cranes on deck handle antennas, machinery, provisions and small boats, and can even lift an entire gas turbine engine directly out of a ship alongside. Spe- cial repair facilities for nuclear pro- pulsion plants are also provided. Be- yond its repair services, ACADIA provides the latest medical and den- tal care for her crew and other ships as well. Extra electrical generators, water distilling capacity and transfer facilities provide additional electric- ity, steam and fresh water for ships alongside. Whatever or whereever the requirement, ACADIA is ready to serve the Navy ' s finest.

" A brief ceremony, a few simple words and the re- sponsibility for a ship and her crew is shifted from one man to another. The simplicity of the short phrases emphasizes the seriousness of the cere- mony. Command at sea is not lightly embarked on, yet it is both rewarding and challenging. Captain Hardy is all smiles as he greets his relief. Captain Finch, with a Welcome Aboard and a hearty handshake.

Collman. NCCM Collman began his naval career while still attending high school by joining the Naval Reserves. In September of 1957 he reported to USS HASSAYAMPA, where he came a Quarter Master. After completing two years he was released from active duty to the reserves. For the next twelve and a half years, the master chief remained in a drilling reserve status. In June 1972, Master Chief Petty Officer Collman returned to active duty as a QM1, from a reserve status of QMCS, in time to commission USS KISKA (AE 35). Following a brief sea tour on board the ammunition vessel, he reported to the University of Kansas as a NROTC instructor. In August 1977, NCCM Collman returned to sea on board USS SPERRY (AS 12). In 1979, he cross rated from QMCS to NCCS, and shipped over to the regular Navy, after completing 22 years of reserve service. Master Chief Petty Officer Collman came aboard USS ACADIA in November 1980 as the Command Carrer Counsellor. He was advanced to Navy Counsellor Master Chief Petty Officer in April 1982. While acting as the link between enlisted personnel and officers, NCCM Collman offers vital assistance necessary in a command of this size. Stressing the importance of utilizing the chain of command is one of the Master Chief ' s priorities. Another is the welcoming aboard of new personnel, and getting them through a complete indoctrination program. He is married to the former Carolyn Sons, and has a daughter, Patty, and a son, Brett. 12 " In my entire Navy career, 1 have yet to have the pleasure of working w ith a more en- joyable and highly skilled crew than that of ACADIA. " NCCM Roy B. Collman Command Master Chief 13 Jli ai Life at sea offers something for most everyone. Some stay awake all night with friends, some seek th( solitude of a sunrise or a sunset, some write letters home, some talk with shipmates, some walk around t he ship all day and some sit on the fantail. 14 .% ENGINEERING LIGHT OFF AND OFF RATI ON The Chief Engineer watches carefully as final preparations are made.

Guid- ing us through busy areas of the world like Hong Kong, Toyko-wan and the Straits of Meiacca, and through the sharp coral reefs of Diego Garcia. Using buoys, piers and landmarks to keep ACADIA on course and out of danger, in weather both fair and foul, the navigation team always came through, opening the door to vast seas and exciting ports.

When G.Q. is first sounded, hearts beat faster, andrenalin flows, and bodies race about. The ships ' existence depends on quick, smart and safe judgement within seconds of that calling. And, because of the ships ' demanded qualities, we have to drill over and over constantly, to get it right, every time. When " Condition Zebra " is set, hatches slam down, " dogs " (bolls) are " dogged " , (bolted) and the ship is made water tight through and through, so as to control flooding, in case the ship has been da- maged in any way. " Hit Alpha " Is just like it says, to inform everyone that a collision is certain, and to be ready for it, to lessen the damage to personnel aboard. These drills can go on for hours, and with ventilation shut off, and the ship water tight, the crew can sweat it out, literally. But with all these drills the captain can be reassured that his crew will be ready if the " real thing " ever comes his way. HIT ALPHA, HIT ALPHA, ALL HANDS BRACE FOR COLLISION!! 21 Two grey ships, steaming side by side, separated by 170 feet of blue water, connected by a few thin lines and a couple of hoses. Replenishment at sea; hun- dreds of gallons of fuel per minute are pumped to ACADIA, filling tanks emptied by days of steaming. Simultaneously fleet stores, movies and mail are transferred. UNREP is one of the most dangerous evolutions con- ducted at sea, requiring precise conning of the ship. Everyone gets involved, from the Captain to the sea- men and firemen. The f)oatswain ' s mates man the UNREP stations, while the engineers get involved below, monitoring the flow of fuel into the tanks and testing the quality of the fuel. UNDERWAY REPLENISHMENT (!

They were on call 24 hours a day, and flight quarters were any- where from Diego Garcia on not to mention the second night out, when the ACADIA rescued those two stranded fish- ermen. 25 AIR OPERATIONS Left: LT " Liberty " Smith finds a way to go to the beach and still be on call.

That some sailors dread more, than the four lettered brig. The stomachs turn, and the knees go weak. The throats dry up, and the voices squeak. With a shakey voice, they cry out, " Why me?? i had it last week. Just check it and see. " They delay and they stall, ' till they check out the board. And they see that the old batch, has grown a new hoard. So, with a bucket of water, and some screwdrivers too. And maybe some sandpaper, drills, rags and glue. 28 Opposite page top left: The constant chore of up dating the weekley PMS Schedule.

From 4 January to 4 August 1983, it was ACADIA who was there, ready, responsive and gener- ous. Like a loving mother, she took ships and boats of all shapes and sizes alongside, taking care of them. From medical and dental services to the most complex repair jobs, all needs were met by the versatile ACADIA and her crew who are dedicated to serving the finest. 30 TO THE FINEST 31 FROM THE FINEST Researching Technical material.

And, because of those constant drillings, a shipboard fire was extinguished, due to quick thinking, rapid action and cool heads. The day was June 9th, around 4:00 am, FN Joseph O. Oberg III awoke to smoke in his berthing space. Upon investigation, he discovered the smoke was coming from a fire in a storage room that was between his berthing and another berthing space, and which was just one deck above a large fuel storage tank. He reported to Damage Control Center (DCC) the location, and then returned to the scene and attempted to extinguish the fire. Being forced out by heavy smoke, he then went and awoke his sleeping shipmates, keeping them from becoming memories of the West Pac. The Fire Cracker Team showed up, and extinguished the fire. They, along with FN Oberg, received Letters of Commendation for their heroic performance. From all of us on ACADIA, " Thanks guys. " ■ -x• While inport in Yokosuka, Japan, some other crewman got to practice fire fighting at the Fire Training Center.

Whatever you want to call it, it gave the crew an afternoon off, to get out in the sun and to enjoy the bar-b- que ' s. Throughout the West Pac, during the long underway periods there were many Fantail Frolics, with activities such as Smokers, (boxing) Wrestling, Simon Says, Pie and Hot Dog eating contests, Tug-o- wars, various types of Water Relays, and our versions of the Talent and " Gong " shows. Whether you got involved in the cooking, or entered the contests, or even just sat and observed, it was an event well enjoyed by one and all.

THE ENGINEER ' S LAMENT Now each of us from time to time, has gazed upon the sea And watched the warships pulling out, to keep this country free. And most of us have read the book, or heard the lusty tale About the men who sail these ships, through lightening, wind and hail. But there ' s a place within each ship, that stories never reach And there ' s a special breed of men, that legends rarely teach. It ' s down below the waterline, it takes a living toll A hot metallic hell, that sailors call the " Hole. " It houses engines run by steam, that makes the shafts go round, A place of fire and noise and heat, that beats your spirits down. Where boilers like a hellish heart, with blood of angry steam Are armored gods without remorse, are nightmares in a dream. Whose threat that from the fires roar, is like a living doubt That any minute would scorn, escape and crush you out. Where turbines scream like tortured souls, alone and lost in hell as ordered above somewhere, they answer every bell. The men who keep the fires lit, and make the engines run Are strangers to the world of night, rarely see the sun. They have no time for man or God, no tolerance of fear Their aspect pays no living thing, the tribute of a tear. For there ' s not much men can do, that these men haven ' t done Beneath the decks, deep in the hole, to make the engines run. And every hour of every day they keep the watch in hell For if the fires ever fail, their ship ' s a useless shell. When ships converge to have a war, upon an angry sea The men just grimly smile at what their fate might be. They ' re locked below like men foredoomed, who hear no battle cry It ' s well assumed that if they ' re hit, the men below will die. There ' s not much difference (Jown below, that every war may bring For threat of ugly violent death, down there ' s a common thing. For every day ' s a war down therf, when the gauges all read red Six hundred pounds of heated steam, (an knock you mighty dea(J, So every man dow n in the hole, has learned to hate so well That when you speak to them of fear, their laughter ' s heard in hell. The men below are fools who watch, their spirits slowly die Who often can ' t remember how, a cloud looks in the sky. So if you ever wrote their song, or tried to tell their tale The very words would make you hear, a desperate spirit ' s wail. And people, as a general rule don ' t hear a dying soul So little is heard about the place, that sailors call the " FHole " But 1 can sing about the place, and try to make you see The hopeless life of men down there, " ' cause one of them is me " And I ' ve been down there for so long, a part of me has died. The part that lives on without light, to be a lost hope ' s guide. I ' ve seen these sweat-soaked hero ' s fight, in superheated air To keep their ship alive and right, though no one knows they ' re there. Amid the boiler ' s mighty heat, and the turbines hellish roar. So when you see a ship pull out, to meet a warlike foe, Remember faintly, if you can, THE MEN WHO SAIL BELOW Author Unknown 97 M DIV R DIVISION HT2 Pasauell Brooks HT3 Brute W.

Particular thanks to MRCS Milliman for his " Can Do " spirit- . " . . . Commanding Officer, USS AMERICA (CV 66) " As you begin the long journey to where family and friends anxiously await your return please convey to your officers and crew a most hearty and sincere well done. The support you have pro- vided for the fleet, and to the commands on Diego Garcia has been outstanding and is a testi- mony to their pride and professionalism. Each de- partment and work center providing support at this remote location can be justly proud of their accomplishments and the impression their fleet have made on the footprint of freedom. You were a team player and actively integrated into the island community, participating in numerous so- cial and recreation activities, as well as providing professional expertise. Thanks again for the job. You have been simply magnificent and a good neighbor. " CAPT T.S. Renncr, USN, Com- manding Officer, Naval Support Facility, Diego Garcia. " During 14-18 May ' 83 USS TRIPPE had an unscheduled tender availability with USS ACADIA for purpose of com- pleting extensive repairs to our damaged flight deck and helo hanger. ACADIA repair personnel worked around the clock under adverse concfitions to complete all repair work in time for TRIPPE ' s underway period on 18 MAY. In the time alloted and with what the tender had to work with, (lack of parts, i.e. hangar doors, mechanism for hangar ex- tension, safety nets and frame), the performance of the ACADIA was exceptional. Ingenuity, close supervision, cooperation, hardwork, and pride in performance were never in short supply during TRIPPE ' s availability. It was a pleasure working with a group of professionals who take genuine pride in servicing the fleet. The entire TRIPPE crew extends their gratitude for your assistance. " . . Com- manding Officer, USS TRIPPE (FF 1075) " The performanc e of ACADIA in support of Battle Group Golf was superb. IN three repair periods AC ADIA ( omplet- ed over 900 jobs. Durmg the Mobasa availability 10 ships were serviced and repair utilization was a noteworthy 130 p( rcent. At Masirah anc borage ov( r 100 jobs were (om- pletetJ in two days including major r( ()airs to USS SAVAN- NAFH and USS KIDD. Equally impressive was the " Can Do " spirit of ACADIA ' S service departments: Administration, Deck, Dental, Medical, Supply and Operations. ACADIA on h( r maiden de()loymenl is up to speed, she does it all. Operating with ACADIA has been rewarding in every re- spect. Request you convey to the crew a collective well done from Battle Group Golf. " . Vice Admiral Conrad, Commander Cruiser Destroyer Group TWELVE. 148 " Work quality was excellent, planning job progression and follow-up were all outstanding, due in large part to the interface provided by ACADIA ' s ship superinten- dents, MMC(SS) Honeck and MMCS(SS) Bates, ACA- DIA Liaisim Officer, LT CM. Drakeley, also provided outstanding assistance. All hands on board ACADIA were eager and ready to provide any service available. ACADIA provided truly outstanding services to USS BOSTON during an unanticipated availability. The en- thusiasm, professionalism and spirit of service shown by ACADIA during BOSTON ' S time alongside have been surpassed in this Commandig Officer ' s career exper- ience with repair ships. BOSTON greatly appreciates the services provided by ACADIA and looks forward to mooring alongside her again in the future. " manding Officer, USS BOSTON (SSN 703) " Since inchop of this Battle Group, services provided Task Group SEVEN ZERO point NINE units by ACADIA have been outstanding in every respect, from complex emergent structural work and major equipment repairs through basic hotel, Medical, Boating and Personnel services, no need has proved too difficult nor insignifi- cant, every requirement was met with a positive " Can Do " spirit and followed aggressively to successful com- pletion. Based upon performance, USS ACADIA could change her motto from, " Service To The Finest, " to " Service By The Finest " . Fair winds and following seas as you aepart the Indian Ocean. Well Done. " RADM R.E. Moranville, Commander, Task Group SEVEN ZERO POINT NINE. SERVICE FROM THE FINEST " On 11 May ' 83, men of the R-2 Division, USS ACADIA, completed a most satifactory repair to the anchor windlass of the SS OVERSEAS VALDEZ. The job was accomplished under adverse weather conditions, re- flecting the continued high standards of the naval ser- vice. The men arc a credit to the USS ACADIA and the United States Navy. The vessel ' s officers wish to extend a personal thanks for a job well done. " Master, SS OVERSEAS VALDEZ. " DONALD B. BEARY was tended by ACADIA in Diego Garcia where ninety-one jobs were accepted and nine- ty-one jobs were completed. All work was superbly done. ACADIA is a magnificent ship with a most enthu- siastic and capable crew. We salute Captain Finch and the crew of tne ACADIA for their dedication and ser- vice to the fleet. " Commanding Officer, USS DON- ALD B. BEARY (FF 1085) " Helicopter Support Squadron ONE, Detachment THREE wishes to extend its appreciation to the USS ACADIA and MRC Clifton of ACADIA ' s Machine Shop. He manufactured a special tool without which we could not replace a major drive shaft component, and without his expert assistance, the aircraft would have been non-mission capable for an extended period of time. " CAN DO " My crew and I would like to sincerely thank you and your ship ' s crew for all the repairs that you have pro- vided us. I would like to give a special thank you and a job well done to your whole diving team. The changing of our ship ' s propeller was both a challange and exper- ience for all people concerned. The USS ACADIA ' s crew seems to work hand in hand with each other, just like a well oiled machine. Again, thank you. Have a pleasant cruise to your next port, and may God bless your ship.

From the anchor windlass on the USNS Overseas Valdez, to the damaged flight deck and hanger doors of the USS Trippe, the Ship ' s first submarine avail- ability, to the over 400 odd jobs the USS Texas presented our Eiec- ronic Repair Division. In every one of those mentioned cases, and many more that are not listed, the Acadia excelled in its ability to provide shipyard quality work, while anchored out, to each and every one of its customers.

Camel rides are cheap, if not free, and a good dust bath afterwards will rid you of the fleas. Somalia had not seen a U.S. Ship in over a year. Hence, we were eager to do as much for our less fortunate brothers as we could, in a true American spirit. We threw a party for the U.S. Emissaries, and opened our ship ' s stores for any ambassadores to Somalia. There was even a soccer game with our ship and the Somalian Nation- al Soccer Team, in which we graciously allowed them to trounce over us. Also, a Softball game occurred with simu- ar results. Meanwhile, HT1 Vallenca (bottom photo, (left), second from left) was busy organizing an effort to benefit the " Friends of the Chil- dren Orphanages " . They needed new steps, new shelves, desks, wiring and plumbing repaired, and paint applied to the interior and ex- terior of a nursery. We supplied these necessities, plus Medical and Dental care. Medical sup- plies, beds and bed- dings, and amuse- ment. We even got to play with the kids And when all was said and done, one could recall back to then and call it truly a good port of call for Human Relations Thank you, HT1 Vallenca and friends. 1 185 186 I 187 ::•::•• Ml!.

During this visit the ship was opened for a general tour for the public. The people seemed to enjoy the tour of the finest Destroy- er Tender providing " Service to the Finest " as much as the crew enjoyed " showing off " their home away from home, and meeting the people in Hong Kong. Hong Kong was also a time for fun. ACADIA ' s crew spent those six days touring Hong Kong and buying, among other things, china, stereos, cameras ancJ silk clothing.

It seems for so long, we looked forward to January ' 83 with a mixture of curiousity, dread, anticipation, and for some, fear of the unknown, and impatience. Then, before we knew it, it was August, and we were steaming the last few miles back into San Diego. Some of us, taking advantage of the low prices and great selections, made purchases, or bartered for souvenirs and mementos of our cruise; and for those of us who aquired such things, and even for those who didn ' t, there remains things unique to our West Pac . . . Memories some good, some bad, but definitely unique. Many of us will experience similar situations and events on future West Pacs, while for some, this was their probably only glimpse of our wide and diverse world we live on. At any rate, we are now the ones saying, " Yes, I remember that, " or, " I ' ve been there. " This book was created to enhance and sut)stantiale those memories, to be brought out to share with families and friends or to just reminisce over more adventurous days. We, the staff, feel this book catches the essence of that cruise. We tried to record events that stood out and made ACADIA ' S West Pac stand out from ail the other c ruises, and also to save for later c omparison the happenings that are so much a part of our proud Navy tradition. It was in this spirit that when the cruise neared it ' s end, when the jobs completed and field days out of the way, a few choice people were gathered and asked to donate their time, ideas, and creativity for the purpose of approaching our amateur and professional photographers on the ship, to beg, borrow, or steal photographs that said " WIST PAC " and put thc m in an understandable, and appealing collection. Many, many man-hours and dedic ation went to this book, and, I, as editor, would like to extend my sine ere thanks to mv staff as well as to the contributors. It was fun and educational. This book is dedicated to a ship and her crew. I give you: " The ' 83 West Pac of the USS ACADIA, AD42. " Cruise Book Officer Ens.

Richard, whose consideration and attention to detail mM v completion and publication ot this cruise book f)ossil)le. the 198 ACADIAS ORIGINS AD-42, the first USS ACADIA, is one of four new modified Gompers class destroyer tenders. The class will be composed of USS YELLOWSTONE (AD-41), USS ACADIA (AD-42), USS CAPE COD (AD-43), and USS SHENANDOAH (AD-44) when the ships are all completed. The keel was laid on Valentine ' s Day, 1978. On July 28 of the following year, Mrs. Ardis Bryan launched AD- 42 with a bottle of champagne, christening her " ACA- DIA " . Her namesake, Acadia National Park, is located on Maine ' s Mount Desert Island, the highest elevation on the eastern seaboard. The phenomenal beauty of Acadia National Park was created by a strange act of nature in which the ocean flooded ancient land sur- faces creating islands out of high hills. The gorges became rivers and wider valleys emerged as bays and gulfs. Woodlands, lakes, mountains and seacoast are all contained in the natural wonder of Acadia National Park, The USS Acadia has deployed twice to Hawaii, once to San Francisco and has just finished her maiden West- Pac.

You set a standard of performance for others to aim at. Each of you can take pride in being part of a winning team that excelled under the most demanding conditions a peacetime tender can experience. The efforts you put forth had a significant, measurable impact on fleet readiness in the region of the world where that readi- ness must be at the highest attainable levels. ACA- DIA ' s support to the fleet covered every area and that is what made it special. You repaired equipment; pro- vided superior medical and dental treatment; painted spaces; made other c r( w ' s living conditions more en- joyable through laurKJry, food service, retail assistance and boating; gave commands and individuals expert advice and counselling in legal, religious, administra- tive and personal matters; and kept snips running with water, steam fuel and supply support. You did all of this for other ships in addition to maintaining ACA- DIA herself in top notch condition. Your contribu- tions also took another vitally important form by en- hancing the image of your country and the United States Navy in the eyes of the foreign peoples you visited. Many of you gave unselfishly of your time to help those less fortunate. The community relations projects you completed showed the concern for oth- ers that can be understood and appreciated by people everywhere in the world. It is the type of feeling that promotes, among all people, cooperation and peace - the goals we all seek. That you were uniquely successful in all of your efforts was clear not only to me but to the countless others who observed your exceptional performance. The recognition you earned came in written messages and letters from a variety of sources ranging from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to relatives and friends who were Tigers. It came in superlatives from ship Commanding Officer ' s citing ACADIA as the " best " tender they had ever been alongside. It came in verbal praise expressed to me by high level diplo- mats, senior naval officers and foreign dignitaries. In closing this Cruise Book, it is fitting that I point out to you the distinctive record you earned during the period reflected in its pages. I nope that the book will remind you of the great team you were a member of and of the many things you achieved for your country and your Navy. I, for one, am extremely proucJ to have been a part of your efforts and to have served with you. 199 i-jj jr I :j; ■ ' - .
