S. Adams, LT Winthrop, Mass. CIC Officer In the Operations Department we have four divisions known as OR, OE, OS and 01. I ' ll explain the primary functions of each as we get into them. Operations con- sists of communications, both the means and the methods, as well as the detecting of unknown — and possibly enemy — contacts: aircraft as well as ships It is even possible to say that the Operations divisions contain the eyes and ears of the ship Operations often lays claim to being the heart of the ship Without them, it would be hard to find a heartbeat; that much is true. 01 Vivi itot L.

N. Fields, RD2 Austinville, Va. The Combat Information Center is the particular hideaway of 01 Division. Located on the Fourth Deck and so isolated that they cannot see, they use their radars and listening equipment to detect possible enemy contacts. Men trained in the art of air-controlling direct friendly aircraft in the interception of enemy. During peacetime independent steaming, the bridge is kept informed of ships which are on a collision course or which are passing close aboard. When operating with a large task force, the radios blare, the men sit before their scopes, others plot, phone talkers send the information up to the bridge, the status boards are maintained, the air controllers are at work and perhaps one man is working out a navigational " fix " by means of radar. During General Quarters, 01 Division aids the Gunnery Department by informing them of incoming raids on the ship. The nicest cooperation is necessary within the many jobs in Combat in order to keep up with both the air and surface picture and to keep the bridge informed. S. D. De Forest, LTJG Seattle, Wash. R.

OS ' Divito K OE DIVISION If those radios, so important to a tactically efficient Navy, give out, OE Division personnel are called in on the double to diagnose and minister to the injury. The patience of a doctor is indeed necessary to the ET ' s or Electronics Technicians, not only as concerns the receivers and trans- mitters of radio equipment, but as regards such gear as the three radars (the surface search, the " air search and the height-finding), the ECM (Electronic Counter-measures), the AEW (Airborne Early Warning) equipment, the loran and the fathometer. Much of the equipment to which they attend is in the " Secret " category and demands of the ET ' s the great- est security. A great deal of their work is done in conjunction with the men of OR Division who keep logs in their radio rooms designating which pieces of equipment need curing by the ET ' s. As you can see, maintenance is a full time job in OE Division, their job in peacetime closely approxi- mating what it would be in time of war. And a hard one it is at all times V ss: SAOS 6A 5 6 » L S - " - ' . " f V.

OS DiwtAi M Signalmen, as the name implies, take care of all communications of a visual nature. And even though most of the signalling by flags, sema- phore and flashing light is visible to all of us if on deck, it is still a ' foreign language to the majority of us. In wartime, as in WW II, the job of these men is of primary importance; the communications which are primarily handled by voice circuits have to be sent visually due to the increased security of the latter method. The visual traffic became so heavy during the Med Cruise that the division had to go on a port-star- board split to keep up with it. The men in OS have to be sharp to do their job effectively; they seem to enjoy the strain. In addition to those on the Signal Bridge, the yeoman in the Operations Office, the aerographer and the photographers are organizationally linked with them in OS Divi- sion. All in all, an interesting group and a necessary one. J. G. Kahrol, LTJG Boston, Mass. D. Horvath, LTJG Cleveland, Ohio A. Persons, LTJG Canandoigoa, N. Y. T. Cunningham, SMC Lawrence, Mass. W.

McKmney, TEC Pittsburgh, Pa. The job of keeping the ship in contact with other commands outside of ourselves belongs to OR Division. There are four main " radio rooms " , Radiol or Radio Central housing the majority of the watch standers. To remain in communication with the other tactical units is one of the toughest jobs in the Navy. The job is such that only through constant practice is a satisfactory performance achieved. However, if you ' re a HAM operator, you know that with radio frequencies you ' ve either got it right or else it ' s all wrong. Practice — and on the Med Cruise we got little else — makes perfect; I believe we came as close to being per- fect as a ship can get. The Post Office on board is, as you might expect, a vital link in the sailor ' s life. There is no need to tell you that, away from home, many of us live from mail call to mail call. Those in the Post Office don ' t get much sleep if mail comes in late but work until it is all dis- tributed almost as if they were in danger of their lives until they got rid of every last letter. So, keeping both the ship, as a unit, and the men, as individuals, informed is the job of OR Division. 13 A. Piaconte, RMI Washington, D. C. P. Bates, BM2 Birmingham, Ala. K. J.

First Lieutenant In the Gunnery Department we have the muscles of the ship. In time of war, it is this group which provides the payload and, in a way, all the other departments aid directly in furthering their ability to do so. In peacetime, we fire as many exer- cises as possible in order to train our personnel and keep our machinery up to snuff. On a cruiser, the Deck Force comes under the control of the Gunnery Department. This group consists of Boatswain ' s Mates and deck hands who take care of the external appearance of the ship and such things as anchoring, mooring and replenishing at sea. 16 r X t t Divi4io t P. Treogy, Jr., LTJG West Pembroke, Me. It would take too long for me to explain the intracacies of letting go and picking up the anchor, but to tell you that it is the responsibility of the First Division will give you an indication that it ' s in good hands. A very specialized " evolution " , it is the primary exercise in seamanship that the division performs. Occasionally, the First is called upon to rig Turret I for receiving stores. The turret, where hydraulic and electrical machinery complicates the process of maintenance, is the abode of the Gunner ' s Mates, who keep the turret ready to absorb the rest of the division in the event of a general Quarters— for drill or for real.

By the same token, the wooden deck abaft Turret I, surrounding Turret II and heading aft to where other divisions take over, is an area of pride for the Second Division. And since it is the location of the Quarterdeck where digni- taries are received, it must represent the pride every man aboard has in his ship. When anchored out, the forward accommodation ladder must equal the appearance of the Quarterdeck. Turret II is the home of the Gunner ' s Mates of the Second and, as is the case with Turret I, a frame on top provides the leverage for their replenishing rig, which is more frequently used. ! I M.

Dig ■ 3icL Divi4iw The only other division which can lay claim to a turret is the Third Division which takes up its residence on the Main Deck Aft. Both under- way and in port it seems that maintenance is only a secondary function of the deck group in this area. When anchored out, the boats must be taken out of the Hangar Deck and put in the water. During the Mediter- ranean Cruise, the fantail was turned into the Quarterdeck because of our having moored stern first — Med Moor — on two occasions. On coming into all ports, the vehicles must be put off by means of the crane. Un- derway, the hi-line or replenishing station is manned during those evo- lutions and there have been occasions when one of these rigs was on either side of Turret III. The helicopter further complicates the situation by necessitating the immediate transformation of the Main Deck Aft into a Flight Deck. L. D. Woznicki, ENS Philadelphia, Pa. J.

The Fourth Division accounts for one-half of the personnel who man the secondary battery, the 5 " 38 enclosed mounts, all six of which you can pick out by strolling around the superstructure on the Main Deck. The Gunner ' s Mates of the division can take particular pride in the fact that they received two " E " ' s for excellence in firing competition this year. The men on deck also perform their work in fine style, for instance, when the ship drops the " hook " , they swiftly rig out the two quarter booms where the motor launches are made fast when not in use. The Fourth supplies a helping hand in replenishing, refueling and highlining and is known for having consistently the best living space on the ship. The Officer ' s Motor Boat and Motor Launch No. 2 are the Fourth ' s showpieces; the coxwains of the OMB typify the pride the division has in its work. N. Pease, LTJG Athens, Ga. J.

The boys on deck of the Fifth Division have what many consider to be the most important job of all: rigging the after accommodation ladder which, when the ship is anchored, is the only means the sailor has of going on liberty. A motor launch for which the division is responsible, provides one-quarter of the meant that the liberty party has of going ashore. The deck forward of Turret III which extends from waterway to waterway and forward to where it meets the Sixth and Seventh Divisions as well as the superstructure encompassed by this area, is the property of the Fifth. The Officer of the Deck, when the ship is anchored out or moored alongside a pier, takes up his residence here. Any business which has to be transacted is done across the After Brow. Underway, the after fueling station is the property of the Fifth. Also belonging to them are the remaining 5 " 38 mounts all of which, I might add, sport the " E " . W. Pietkiewicz, ENS Windsor, Vt.

When you ' re there, look up from the Main Deck into the superstructure and you will see what is meant by the " jungle " . A labyrinth of metal, it is functionally necessary but to the men who have to maintain it, it seems to exist only to persecute them. The stack, belching black smoke at intervals, affirms their suspicion that somehow they shouldn ' t be tampering with it. Perhaps it is for this reason that the division seems safety-minded: the port motor whale boat is on hand should someone fall overboard. So, while the deck is ready for an emergency, so are the Gunner ' s Mates and their strikers who, in manning the portside three-inch mounts (the anti-aircraft battery), play a large part in the defense of the ship.

The Seventh Division is responsible for an area similar to its counter- part on the port. The superstructure plagues them fully as much although it gives them a spot to secure their replenishing rig for the ship ' s amid- ships station. Whether refueling ourselves from a tanker or fueling de- stroyers, the Seventh is there with the four or six inch hose at the for- ward fueling station, and it has also been called upon to rig a highline in its spaces. " Man Overboard " calls the Seventh away to put the star- board motor whaleboat in the water, whereas it shares the ready duty on a port and starboard basis, manning the boat every other day. Their GQ stations are in the starboard 3 " 50 mounts where you will find mount 33 sporting a " E " . Even jets will have to be fast to get around these men who live a fast life on deck when they are not on their battle stations. E. Bursk, LTJG Boston, Mass. J. Mac Dougall, GM1 Beverly, Mass. B.

The Marines are listed as the Eighth Division in the Gunnery De- partment from the standpoint of the ship ' s organization. We know them to be an efficient unit on their own, and this is just their function in wartime as the core of the landing party, the remainder of which is made up by sailors from the Deck Force. Thus, with small arms they ' re the boss, but they even manage to get into the act with the big guns: two 3 " 50 mounts constitute their GQ stations; and in Culebra during Re- fresher Training, they made up our spotting team on the beach and talked our 5 " and 8 " guns onto the target they had assigned us. In peace- time there are not many opportunities to display heroism but the Marines find a way to keep up their spirit: their appearance and bearing is a mat- ter of pride to them and materally adds to the impression that arriving dignitaries receive when confronted by the honor guard on the Quarterdeck.

It ' s pretty obvious that guns can fire with just their crews in them but whether they will hit anything is a point for discussion. Firecontrolmen provide the electronic " signal " which positions the mounts in order that they may hit the target It sounds simple but don ' t be fooled. The number of factors involved in a good " solution " and the complexity of the machinery involved in computing that solution would make the average man ' s head spin. Not only must the solution be found but the equipment must be re- paired at intervals, a job which takes an immense talent as well as a depth of knowledge accrued only through experience. The three batteries, 3 " , 5 " and 8 " , because of the difference in sys- tems for each, make it necessary for the F Division to have a many faceted personality. Besides being responsible for the flow of information up to the guns, there are Firecontrolmen who man the directors which track the target. From there, the FT ' s make sure that adequate information gets below to the computers. Ordnance is another charge of the F Division. The ship ' s Armory, am- munition, powder and small arms are their exclusive property. So actually, the personality is split four ways but, pulling together as they do, the job of firing the guns is made easier and that of hitting the target made possible. 48 R. Sargent, Ens.

Bunke, SN Cincinnati, Ohio The BM Division is a combination of yeomen, side-cleaners, sail- makers and the brains behind the Deck Force of the ship. The Ship ' s Boatswain, under the First Lieutenant, and the Chief of the Ship, super- vise and provide the technical assistance in all phases of deck seaman- ship. The Sail-Locker has produced awnings which other ships have found it necessary to request from shipyards; it goes without saying that any- thing made from canvas on the ship is a product of the men in the Sail Locker. So our sides will not sport seven different shades of gray, the Paint Locker parcels out a standard mixture. At the Boatswain ' s Locker, we draw our manila, small stuff, shot line and many other things. The side-cleaners are just what the name indicates. They are drawn from the first seven deck divisions and for a period of from three to six months they become a part of BM Division. The yeomen in the Gunnery Office are attached to the division. So, motley a crew as it may seem, they operate efficiently thereby inducing a smoothly operating Deck Force. N. Freeman, BMC Hamlet, N. C. A. Loughridge, BM3 Key West, Fla. D.

In October, we welcomed the HU-2 Helicopter Detachment aboard to stay with us for our Mediterranean Cruise. Their helo has proven use- ful to us as well as to the Admiral when he was embarked. It was used for pick-ups of guard-mail for personnel transfers and could be used for rescue work and, if properly equipped, for the detection of submarines. We have seen two helicopters with this detachment: the first was damaged on landing on our narrow airstrip on the Main Deck Aft; small and un- stable, a constant challenge to the helo pilot, a large roll such as the one on the day in question, makes their job an unenvied one. The second helo had better luck. The " V " Division contains men equipped to handle just about any emergency repair to the helo in conjunction with shipboard facilities. When " Flight Quarters " is called away, it involves men from several other divisions who, in case of emergency, are there to assist those who are taking the chances. H. L.

Boilermen and Machinist Mates join forces in the Boiler Division to maintain the four boilers and turbo-generators and associated lines, valves, and auxiliary equipment in each fireroom as well as the storing of fuel oil and fresh water. In winter, our living compartments profit from their production of steam as well as our showers from their production of hot water. This same steam under widely varying pressures goes into the turbines which propel the ship and into generators which provide elec- tricity. The four firerooms are each assigned personnel plus a repair gang which services all of them as well as the Oil Kings who control the fuel oil and fresh water. Fueling evolutions bring the men of " B " Division -topside and set the valves turning below-decks. The trim of the ship is in their hands: as the fuel supply diminishes, they must ballast the emptying tanks with salt water to prevent a list. When " B " Division is in trim so is the whole ship. W.

The Electrical Division consists of Electrician ' s Mates and Interior Communication rates which keep up, as well as operate, the electrical power generators and distribution switchboards. Other departments find themselves fully dependent on the Electrician ' s Mates for power. The Gunnery Circuit operates the guns of the three batteries. Since portholes are at a premium and sunlight scarce even in the daytime in most work- ing spaces, the lighting circuit is of utmost importance. The Ship ' s Service Circuit provides the Galley and Sick Bay equipment with their power. The ICmen, known to us for running the movies each night, make the ship ' s service telephone and PA systems function. The sound- powered phones used by the battle stations and for command circuits underway are their property. The gyro compasses are their babies and the Navigator can attest to the fact that he ' s had no trouble from them. The EM ' s and ICmen have challenging jobs; ones in which they take pride in their accomplishment. ■ E, R G. Culver, EM2 Trucksville, Pa. D. Czech, IC2 Wilwaukee, Wis.

Composed of Machinist ' s Mates, whose bailiwick is either of the two engine rooms, the division rarely sees the light of day while underway. Considering what damage the turbines could sustain through carelessness, the men of " M " Division have an excellent record, especially after all of our 25 knot approaches followed by a two-thirds backing bell. They also maintain our evaporators, all three of which must be kept up efficient- ly in order that we can take our showers and have drinking water. The I oilers take a lusty draught of water for operation as does the ship ' s laundry, but somehow we manage to have enough for ourselves the ma- jority of the time. Their work is hard, dirty and dark but the particular type of individual who is down there, is an avid engineer and could think of doing nothing else. P. W. Britt, ENS Bethlehem, Pa. R.

Com- posed of Pipefitters, Damage Controlmen and Metalsmiths, their job very often appears quite thankless. However, as proven over and over again, whether at war or during peacetime, the fact that a ship is still afloat is, in many cases, directly attributable to these very men or the instruction that they painstakingly have given to others. Even though this takes into consideration the DCs primarily, the other two rates join hands with them when the chips are down. The Metalsmiths in " R " Division offer their talents to the whole ship through their Shipf itter ' s Shop, which is al- ways knee-deep in job-orders. The DCs and FP ' s work together in the Carpenter Shop or the Pipe Shop where their specialties are also very much in demand. J. R. Spinner, LTJG Graniteville, Mass. W. G. Veeh, MEC Logan, Kons. R.

Our food, our clothing and our luxuries are stocked and distributed by its five divisions Money, an item of great importance to us, is in their safe- keeping for paydays. All other departments depend on their foresight and efficiency for spare parts and everyday needs. All in all, I guess you ' d call it a real " going concern. " 78 S-t VivteioH M. F.

You might say that supplies for which money is not directly needed but for which- a requisition must be made up and properly authenticated are the domain of S-l. The Storekeepers find that one of their major jobs is in prepar- ing for replenishment periods. Logrep strip cards — IBM cards — must be passed to a replenishing ship in advance for the following period some two weeks later. To be able to figure this out means that the storerooms must be neatly arranged with the goods which are most needed in a clearly accessible position, even though the space is not available to make this an easy job. Their ability to order two weeks to a month ahead of time is one of those talents which comes only through experience. m W. E. Lindberg, SKI Arlington, Mass. D. A. Nielson, SK2 Alba, Pa. R.

Responsible for the reefer spaces where the food is stored, and the prepara- tion and serving of it, the Commissarymen must make sure that waste does not occur on their own part. As far as the crew is concerned, very little food is wasted except for lack of room in their stomachs. Pastries and bread are supplied as an added incentive for the sailor to fill himself up. The menus are prepared, food issued and requisitions made up on the basis of prevalent tastes and consumption. The Standard Navy Ration stipulates the minimum each man is to get and at the same time pro- hibits our going overboard on the chow except on special occasions. The rapidity with which the chow-line forms is adequate testimonial to the good job they are doing. J. Stroebel, CS2 Bronx. N. Y. J. Brown, CS3 Brewton, Ala. 81 S-2 iwUitot R.

Besides the store, the division takes care of the laundry, barber shops, tailor shop, soda fountain and clothing and small stores. A certain percentage of the profits from these go to the Recreation Fund which provides the crew with the movies, radios, facilities in the Crew ' s Lounge and other luxuries of shipboard life. When outside the territorial waters of the U. S., the Ship ' s Store arranges for the purchase of foreign merchandise which is sold for just a little above cost. In some cases we get items for which we would pay three times as much in the States. Also, S-3 makes arrangements with dry cleaning services in overseas ports. But, the fun of being businessmen keeps up their gusto for their jobs. 83 R. Sitz, SH2 P. Badua, SH3 A. Bishop, SH3 J. Booth, SH3 Roxbury, Mass. Philippine Islands Union City, N. J. Gutric, Ky. W.

The most arduous duties of the DK are over- looked by many of us: the paper work entailed in computing the pay, making up checks, the money lists, the allowances, allotments and taxes. Things are complicated each time a man makes a new rate: his pay record must be completely renewed. Regardless of changes of status, each man ' s pay record is recut semi-annually. Additional work is entailed by travel claims, shore patrol advances, advance pay, dislocation allowances and changes of station. Cutting W-2 forms annually brings forth another " col- lateral " duty of the division: that of being certified public accountants who have to counsel us on our positions. Not at all a final note but just another hazard of the being a DK is the buying of foreign money for the benefit of the crew. I must say that a DK truly knows the value of money. C.

Navigator The Navigation Department, headed by the Navigator, is made up of only one division but its job is none the less important for its small size. You probably have a good idea of the purpose of navigation: to make sure the ship is in safe waters at all times and on the right course at the right speed to meet commitments at the right spot at the right time. This, of course, means we have to know where we are. And this knotty problem is always solved with aplomb by the personnel of the department. 89 7t ' Divi tOH The N Division is composed of Quartermasters who provide the in- port and underway deck watch sections with the required know-how and assistance to make them function smoothly. They check the ship ' s po- sition and the weather periodically and, added to what they enter in their notebook, they have a record of almost everything that takes place in each watch. The means at the disposal of the Quartermasters for ascertaining position are — if not in sight of land — loran, radar " , sextant, fathometer, radio direction finder and deduced reckoning. Also the re- sponsibility of the QM ' s are the charts and the ship ' s chronometers, the compensating of the magnetic and magnesyn compasses and keeping a check on the gyro repeaters. During seamanship evolutions, it is the Quartermaster who is called upon to take the helm. R. Colemon, QMC E. Orange, N. J. D. Woodrich, QM2 Owatonna, Minn. Sorato M. Decolati, QM3 Irwin, Pa. M.

Public Information Officer The Executive Division is composed of Personnel men, Journalists, Lithographers, Yeomen and the Master-at-Arms Force. The Personnel men and Yeomen are sprinkled through the various offices: I E or Edu- cation Office, Executive (Personnel) Office and the Captain ' s Office. The Executive Office takes care of every man ' s record (all except pay and health records) which are referred to as a service jacket: The Captain ' s Office does the same for the officers. The Education Office promul- gates and advises on matters of personnel training and it is through them that courses are ordered and the standards set for advancement in rating. One of these offices will have the answer to a man ' s question if he desires to know what benefits he may receive with his qualifications. 92 THa ten at rfimt The Master at Arms job is to enforce the " Laws " of the shipboard life, and main- tain the decorum associated with the Navy.

Smith, LI In absorbing the pain of the entire ship, the Hospitalmen and Dental Technicians do not seem the worse off for it. The doctor and both dentists are men to whom we gladly entrust our health. The Hospitalmen are con- cerned also with hygiene and sanitation. Should a sailor develop a malady, he goes below to the Sick Bay area at either one of the two sick call periods. The medical facilities are excellent for minor operations and, if necessary, they are adequate for major ones which it may be imperative to perform when no hospital is available. The Dental Technicians are able to take care of us except for the making of dentures. Much the same as with stateside dentists, we are received by appointment and take our seat to await all manner of hardships which never occur. So, in short, we stay clear of Sick Bay as much as possible until our number comes up again, when we thank our lucky stars that such a place exists. 96 Nw f W V VtvitUM R. Luko, HM1 New London, Conn.

Well, all of them come under the Executive Officer who, in line with the Captain ' s desires, sets the standards to which we must adhere. This building up of authority and responsibility is what we call the " chain of command " and it culminates with the Captain who has full cognizance over everything — in the entire ship. The Executive Officer must ensure that the Captain is left free of the minutiae of the paper work and routine everyday occurrences so he can concentrate on things which directly con- cern all hands on board. [a to I ihi| -- ■ of " ■:: Gr, Hi: om h ho, it (IK 100 EXECUTIVE OFFICER COMMANDER ROBERT G. MERRITT Our Executive Officer is Commander Robert G. Merritt. During the Yard Period he served as Commanding Officer while we were awaiting Captain Sieglaff ' s arrival. A past-master when it comes to heavies, and their internal organization and operating capabilities, as his extensive service in battle- ships indicates, Commander Merritt has given his all toward increasing the efficiency with which the Albany has operated. In carrying out his duties as Second-in-Command, Commander Merritt has a fund of knowledge on the requirements of his position gained through having been the Commanding Officer of the destroyer U.S.S. Holder in 1952 and 1953. An air of " professorship " seems to cling to him; per- haps his pedagogical manner is attributable to the three years which he spent at the U. S. Naval Post Graduate School in Monterey, California where he taught in the Command Communications Curriculum. His ability as an instructor has not spent itself: few officers and men have failed to learn from his just and firm handling of difficult situations. Commander Merritt has overseen the Albany ' s development from the Boston Yard Period to the present day, and has been a great influence in determining the success which the ship has had on all occasions. As we all know, the job of Executive Officer is a difficult one. To handle it diplomatically is harder yet. With a smile and calm assurance, Commander Merritt has done the most difficult with ease. 101 COMMANDING OFFICERS CAPTAIN W. B. SIEGLAFF Captain William Sieglaff came aboard in the Boston Yard Period, relieving Commander Merritt as Commanding Officer, and left us in Suda Bay, Crete one year later. The ship ' s high morale was due, no doubt, to his twenty-two years experience in submarines where he worked closely with his men and where he gained the ability to build incentive among them. After graduation from the Naval Aca- demy in 1931, Captain Sieglaff spent two years on the battleship OKLAHOMA. He also received a Master ' s Degree from MIT in Naval Engineering. On submarines during WW II, Captain Sieglaff served with the USS POMPANO and TAU- TOG becoming Commanding Officer of the latter and also CO of the USS TENCH. As duty officer on the TAUTOG on 7 December 1941 in Pearl Harbor, his submarine was credited with shooting down a Japanese plane. His record in the Pacific gained for him two Navy Crosses, three Silver Stars, two Legions of Merit. After the war, from 1947 to 1949, he served as Submarine Detail Officer at the Bureau of Naval Personnel and during the next four years at New London, Connecticut, he was successively, Commander Submarine Division EIGHTY-ONE, Commander Submarine Development Group TWO, Officer-in-Charge of the Submarine School and Commander Submarine Base. In October 1955, he made the big switch to the Surface Navy as Commanding Officer of the ALLAGASH, an oiler. October 1956 saw Captain Sieglaff assume command of the ALBANY where his extensive experience carried us through the Yard Period, Re- fresher Training, a Midshipman Cruise, through NATO Operations and then into the Mediterranean. 102 k Our present Commanding Officer, Captain John S. McCain, Jr. came aboard in Suda Bay, Crete where he relieved Captain Sieglaff. From there, he carried on and added to the proud ALBANY tra- dition of being the top cruiser in the Mediterranean. Our operating schedule was rigorous and our tour of the Eastern Med kept much of the crew away from ports they had planned on seeing. Captain Mc- Cain somehow managed to keep pride and desire high on the part of ship ' s company while deployed in that area. Also a veteran of many years ' association with submarines, Captain McCain spent his first two years after graduation from the Naval Academy in 1 931 attached t o the USS Oklahoma after which he served on board three submarines and was Commanding Officer of three more up through 1945. Before his first command in the Surface Navy, the USS MONROVIA in July 1954, Captain McCain had various duties among which were, Commander Sub- marine Division SEVENTY-ONE, Head of Research and Development Branch of Un- dersea Warfare and Commander Subma- rine Squadron SIX. Captain McCain is one of the experts in the field of submarine habitability and has done a great amount of work on the subject. But we know him as an expert on cruiser habitability. He has made us so proud of our ship that living on her for ex- tended periods away from home has been no hardship. In fact, it has been a pleasure. CAPTAIN JOHN S. McCAIN, JR -yk Now, of course, you ' ve got to realize that we ' re in fine hands as a unit, and even though we ' re the best ship afloat, we belong to a bigger group yet. Sure, we belong to the Navy, the Atlantic Fleet and Cruiser Force Atlantic but we belong in a Cruiser Division also. Commander Cruiser Division Four has been almost exclusively embarked in the AL- BAN i ' except for the Midshipman Cruise when he rode the MACON, our sister ship in the Division. He brings with him all the personnel that he needs to operate; but I ' ve mentioned them before: the Flag Division, remember ' Just before we were scheduled to leave the Mediterranean, the Flag left us for good, transferring to the U.S.S. Canberra in Pollensa Bay, Mallorca on 5 January 1958. 104 ) I I Top row: Lt. J. R. Morgan, USN, Flog Secretary; Lt. W. O. McDaniel, USN, Staff Gunnery Officer; Ltjg. E. B.

Fisher, USN, Stoff Operations Officer; Lcdr. P. Boland, Staff Communication Officer. The Staff of Cruiser Division 4 first joined us in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba during our refresher training and provided thereafter a great deal of stimulus for both officers and crew members. Since the Admiral needs to know so much in order to function effectively as Division Com- mander, his staff must be well equipped — both from the standpoint of experience and knowledge — to provide the necessary data and criteria for his final decisions. We always had to be on our toes to keep up with them. 105 CHIEF OF STAFF UNTIL OCTOBER 1957 CAPTAIN ROBERT W. LEACH CHIEF OF STAFF AFTER OCTOBER 1957 CAPTAIN JAMES W. DARROCH 106 CH I I $ COMMANDER CRUISER DIVISION FOUR Rear Admiral Charles L. Melson was graduated from the Naval Academy in 1927 and at- tained to his present rank dating from 1 June 1955. Admiral Melson ' s war record is a series of commen- dations for outstanding service. Judging from our experience with his staff and the state of their alertness, we have had no difficulty in realizing why. A good example is the Admiral ' s preference for wartime procedures, such as visual communications rather than the use of comparatively insecure voice circuits. ii Admiral Melson served on various ships commencement of World War II: the United States MACK, PITTSBURGH, DUPONT, DICKERSON SON. In September 1942, he became Commanding great deal of action in his year and one-half on dexterity.

I can say that without fear of contradiction, especially when the job concerns a much larger unit which, to function efficiently, demands the efficient func- tioning of the individuals who comprise the major portion of the ship ' s crew and who are very neces sary cogs in a large piece of machinery. So far, I ' ve shown you our team; the man, his friends and his superiors who are all a part of " us " . You ' ve been taken into the lives of my many ship- mates. Now, I ' m going to show you where all this gets us; what the ALBANY does with her crew, or better, what the crew makes possible for the ALBANY to do. The high-speed approach (25 knots) on the re- plenishing ship, for instance, takes a great amount of teamwork and no man involved — and there are many — can take a back seat. The " Big A " always seems to receive her ust deserts from her crew; and the crew can justly identify itself with the ship. So we have the men and the ship; but enough : here are some of the facets of shipboard ife. Maybe you will see what I mean. vj ■ I— HI I IIIIH i H MI ' " . . . when I go to sea, I go as a simple sailor . . .

The crow ' s nest and the hours of contempla- tion of yesteryear ' s whalers and clippers are gone. We spend our working hours alert; we hare to taper off gradually; these things provide us with our impetus to keep going, and as we go, to progress. 1 ■■ I trrr vjl 1 1 j ' £ ii J! 1 A good sailor is a proud individual welcomes inspections because they give him a chance to demonstrate his military bearing and readiness, traits which carry over into his pro- fessional skill and ability as a leader.

I am tormented with an. everlasting itch for things remote. I love to sail forbidden seas and land on barbarous coasts . " To those of us who are not, I ' d just as well to stop in at Boston, our home port, for a while.

This was the beginning of our year afloat which termi- nated on 26 February 1958 with 10 months and twenty days behind us away from Boston. A happy but rusty and mostly untrained crew made its way to sun and toil in the Caribbean. Each morning about sunrise, we headed out from the bay to flex our potential muscle and each eve- ning we headed back in to enjoy liberty at the various clubs ashore where we applied a bit of oil to our tired joints. Endless drills, GQ ' s and firing somehow did not deaden us but rather awakened our interest in becoming the best cruiser afloat, a goal which we have since X + V I; CULEBRA MAR. 11, 1957 i i In GTMO, our guns had done everything but fire an actual shore bombardment. The Island of Culebra, to the northeast of Puerto Rico, was our destination for the firing. We anchored off the island and sent in our spotting party. Our Marines, designated the target to us by radio and gave us " spots " (measurements to put us on target). With both 5 " and 8 " , we blasted away for two days, racking up an excellent score for our competitive year. At night, the 5 " bat- tery provided illumination and it was in this ex- ercise that we scored 100 per cent. On the way back to GTMO, we stopped one night in San Juan, Puerto Rico, for a well-de- served liberty. From our Refresher Training, we headed back to Boston. 6a 54 68 78 53 " 68 " 75 " P ose autnonzea oy the Secretary of the Navy, shall be ivigited In or above the area within the three-mile limit. = a 6 5 6 S W 46 Is 26 PORT-AU PRINCE FEB. 22, 1957 FEB. 24. 1957 Our first " liberty port " of the year, Port-au- Prince had a picturesque and slightly Ameri- canized air.

While underway, many of us were kept busy try- ing to shape-up the Midshipmen. But all work came to a halt when the Jolly Roger was hoisted and King Neptune made his entrance to wallop the pollywogs and, by so doing, initiate them into the order of seasoned Shellbacks. After all this came Valparaiso, and not at all anti-climactically I might add. The inhabitants there were very friendly and the atmosphere was much to our liking. In nearby Vina del Mar, a resort where the rich spend their summers, we had our fun also, even though it was winter. But winter in Chile means 40 to 60 degrees, much like early Autumn in Boston. Many of us traveled to San- tiago, the capital and largest city of Chile where, some of us believe to this day, the women are the most beautiful in the world. Chile, with many racial stocks although predominantly Span- ish and Indian, is prosperous and modern with strikingly beautiful scenery of which the Western Hemisphere ' s highest peak, Aconcagua, is a part. A good time was had by all — even the Midship- men. ■ yy rsi ■i — . 10 I - 5 ]OFf ! 5 Q i j loot I a-.- " ! - ' ? ? a u e,oo ' --♦■ 26 FV ' •.9 ' ,3» s a - 5 . — ii — ii — ii — i p3i r 1™ tmimL u B aLib ' mmf T | rW ' f i t m BALBOA JULY 19, 1957 JULY 23, 1957 C .|«.

In between them, we had three days in Fairlie, the little , ' town off which we were anchored while in the Firth of Clyde. Since our liberty day came up once every three, each man had only one day ashore here. In any case, we went to Glas- gow and Edinburgh for what little culture we could glean in one day. The beauty of ( the country- side and the delightful aura about the people made us all sorry that we had so little time there. We proceeded north from Scotland, beyond the Arctic Circle to our operating area of the coast of Norway. Deployed with three British carriers and several destroyers, we gained greatly by our experience here with the other units of NATO. Our service in Strikeback completed, we set out for the Mediterranean via the English Channel. FIRTH of CLYDE " ,--»-, SUDA BAY OCT. 7, 1957 - OCT. 9, 1957 Suda Bay was a stopping off point for our change of command ceremonies. Ordinarily not a liberty port, we were granted our freedom here: we had been underway for 48 days with only one day ' s liberty in Scotland. Captain John S. McCain, Jr. relieved Captain W. B. Sieglaff in a ceremony on the Main Deck Aft which we all attended. When Captain Sieglaff prepared to leave the ship, the Albany Song which he had written during refresher training in GTMO came over the PA system bidding him a farewell and smooth sailing on the part of the entire crew. «.-■ " ' u a u: u a . w • .

Our first liber ty port was Athens, proud and independent. Steeped in history and even pre-history, it is quite possible today to pick out dead ringers for statues which are now many centuries old. We went on tours and took part in the Athenian night life and found them very modern and quite realistic. The beauty of Greece and Athens resides in their tra- dition, a fact which colors everything. In the city, ancient ruins stand next to thriving modern developments and somehow the paradox never seemed resolved. Maybe it will take a few more trips to Athens before we can put the pieces of her culture together and come up with a one or two sentence description of it. I think, however, that Athens will defy a short general description. z r » - ' » I I c 1 t SALONIKA - - NOV. 7, 1957 - NOV. 19, 1957 After another operating period to the south of Greece, we anchored in the harbor of Salonika, Greece, otherwise known as Thessaloniki. A fine USO was established here for the benefit of the crew members; others of us strolled around the - town trying to make out the language which had only served to puzzle us in Athens. The language barrier is great here, but as elsewhere in the Mediterranean, people have a way of getting around it. Sailors especially, whether bartering ' £ for goods or asking directions, always find a way to communicate. lcor»ptCuOY«J 2 MBra 9 IZMIR NOV. 7, 1957 - NOV. 19, 1957 After three ports in which we hod used the drachma, we now had to shift mentally to another exchange rate: the Turkish lire. With the lire came an new culture, strikingly Oriental in nature and another language, if anything, more diffi- cult than Greek. The atmosphere enveloping Izmir is — or seemed to be — dreamlike: the ar- chitecture, the trees and the sounds along the streets. On visiting the Park of the Exposition and the finer nightclubs, we had to agree once again that the major difference was one of language. And the language barrier was easily surmounted by the friendliness of the majority of the citizens toward the sailors who were far away from their home port. Our education was added to by our trips to Ephesus and Pergamum. Now, we had thoroughly explored the world of Homer and Byzantium and we headed back to sea. ■• •» ■ DEC. 16, 1957 - JAN. 3, 1958 . »K O u J Our tour in the East came to a close as we steamed through the Straits of Messina and up along the Boot of Italy toward our port for the Christmas holidays. Genoa, our introduction to the Western Mediterranean, was well chosen: in many ways the city closely resembled the United States and was the perfect port in which to bring the New Year in. It was the first chance we had to take overnight tours. Some went to Rome, Venice and Sestriere, a ski resort. The people, reserved and intelligent, were by nature friendly and made us feel at home knowing that we were lonely during this season. Our stay, long, enjoy- able and profitable came to an end shortly after the New Year had begun, we were once again underway.. - • - - . ? o u i I NAPLES v. » a jr Well to the south of Genoa lay Naples, and with it our tour of Italy came to an end. We found the city highly Americanized, probably because of the large NATO base set up there. The Armed Services Exchange as well as the com- mercial stores in town had many buys which we could not afford to pass up. Our problems with the language were eased: almost everyone spoke English here. But, with the language barrier went some of the character of the city which we had begun to associate with the towns of the Mediter- ranean. Again, a tour to Rome was scheduled as we+I as one to the ancient town of Pompeii. If t had been in season, we might have lolled around the resort areas, the most famous being Capri. The time rolled around again and, loaded with goods and more experiences in " interna- tional living " , we weighed anchor for another operating period. ' . i p N V Si Ddramna Si ?®S tf stCi0fr " BARCELONA From the moment Spain — and Barcelona — hove into view, our traditional schedule was shat- tered. Although not as harsh in their hours as Madrid, everything was set back in Barcelona. Consequently, when ashore we were forced to conform and conform we did — with pleasure. Not the Spain of dark hair, sultry nights and flashing eyes, which is in the South, but a Spain of mod- erate prices, good entertainment and in general, a sailor ' s delight. Outside of the local tour, we went to the monastery at Montserrat with its breathtaking cable-car. We can say that no cruise of the Mediterranean is complete without a stay in Barcelona, although leisurely, the most industrialized and inventive city in Spain. Too soon we had to leave. We sliced through the green waters of the Med for the last time as we headed for a two day stopover in Gibraltar after which we detached from the Sixth Fleet. Homeward bound. Happy, tired and proud, both man and ship. jff H K ii • v I,!.., -b ' G 8 ' ■ t R KSrT T P P r Ml , X BAY ' . " H-l 1- N l i-i H " i«n.p - D ' .» t +1 f lk tf c.
