Captain jerry C. Breast took over duties
as AMERlCA's Executive Officer when he re-
lieved Commander Thomas N. Fortenberry on
5 june 1976.
As nearly everyone knows, the Executive
Officer has practically nothing to do, except
decide what is to be done, to tell somebody
to do it, to listen to reasons why it should not
be done, why it should be done by somebody
else, or why it should be done in a different
wayg to follow up to see if the thing has been
done, to discover that it has not, to enquire
why, to listen to excuses from the person who
should have done it, to follow up again to see
if the thing has been done, only to discover
that it has been done incorrectlyg to point out
how it should have been done, to conclude
that as long as it has been done it may as
well be left where it isp to wonder if it is not
time to chew out a person who cannot do a
thing right, to reflect that he probably has a
wife and large family, and that any relief
would be just as bad and probably worseg to
consider how much simpler and better the
thing would have been done if one had done
it oneself in the first placeg to reflect sadly that
one would have done it correctly in twenty
minutes, and as things turned out it has taken
two days to find out why it has taken three
weeks for somebody to do it incorrectly.

Carrier Air Wing SIX was originally commissioned as Carrier
Air Group 17 on 1 Ianuary 1943 at NAS Norfolk, Virginia.
CVC-17 participated in combat operations in the Pacific during
World War II against Rabaul, the Gilbert Islands, New Ireland,
Marshall Islands, Truk, and the Mariannas aboard USS BUNKER
HILL. CVG-17 again deployed in 1945, this time aboard USS
HORNET and participated in missions against Iwo lima, Tokyo,
Chichi Jima, Okinawa, and Kyushu. For actions during World
War II, CVO-17 was awarded two Presidential Unit Citations.
CVC-17 was redesignated as CVBG-17 and CVGB-5 before
finally becoming the present Carrier Air Wing SIX on 27 july
1948. In late 1962, CVW-6 participated in the quarantine of
Cuba aboard USS ENTERPRISE and in 1964 took part in Opera-
tion Sea Orbit aboard ENTERPRISE. This was the around-the-
world cruise of the Navy's three nuclear powered surface ships
ENTERPRISE, LONG BEACH and BAINBRIDGE.

during the Greek Crisis and May-june Middle East Crisis which
culminated in the USS LIBERTY affair and the Six Day War. In
1968, CVW-6 again deployed aboard AMERICA, this time to
Southeast Asia for combat operations against North Vietnam.

The organization currently known as
Commander Carrier Group FOUR was
first activated as Carrier Division FOUR
on 12 March 1943 as an element of the
FIFTH Fleet in the Pacific. The staff saw
extensive action throughout the Second
World War aboard some of the most
famous aircraft carriers to come out of the
Pacific Theater: USS BUNKER HILL
ICV-171, USS INTREPID ICV-III, USS
INDEPENDENCE ICVL-223, USS
FRANKLIN, USS CABOT ICVL-281, and
USS LAKE CHAMPLAIN ICV-391. Carrier
Division FOUR was a major participant
in the Marshall Islands campaign, the
Battle of Leyte C-ulfg the battle off Cape
Engano, in which planes from the USS
INTREPID sunk the japanese aircraft car-
riers ZUIHO, ZUIKAKO, and CHIYODA:
the Doolittle raids on Tokyo, the sinking
of the battleship YAMATO: and the battle
of Okinawa in the final drive towards the
defeat of the japanese.
In recent years the staff has concen-
trated in two specific areas of carrier op-
erations: the training and preparation of
Atlantic Fleet aircraft carriers for deploy-
ment, and the actual operational
employment of the carriers in deploy-
ment to the Mediterranean SIXTH Fleet.
At one time or another the command has
become involved with the training or op-
eration of every carrier assigned to the At-
lantic Fleet, ranging from the World War
II ships USS SHANGRI-LA and USS
FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT to the nu-
clear carriers ENTERPRISE and NIMITZ.
The Commander and his staff partici-
pated actively during the Dominican
crisis of 1961, the Greek-Turkish tensions
of-1967 and the middle-east crises of
1967 and 1972. In the areas of new de-
velopments, the command was involved
with the introduction of the SH-3 helicop-
ter into the fleet, the Interim Sea Control
Ship Evaluation aboard USS GUAM and
introduction of the new F-14 "Tomcat"
fighter, the E-2C "Hawkeye" early warn-
ing aircraft and the all jet S-3A "Viking"
anti-submarine carrier aircraft to the At-
lantic Fleet aboard USS JOHN F. KEN-
NEDY in 1975.
On 1 july 1973 the name of the staff
was changed from Carrier Division FOUR
to Carrier Group FOUR. At the present
time Commander Carrier Group FOUR
maintains administrative command of
four Atlantic Fleet carriers: USS IN-
DEPENDENCE, USS AMERICA, USS
IOHN F. KENNEDY and USS NIMITZ.
Thus, the commander has at his disposal
an extremely potent arsenal to fulfill
whatever mission may be assigned to him
over, on or under the sea. The aircraft
carrier remains the primary element of
defense for this country on the high seas
throughout the world. Carrier Group
FOUR remains today, as it was in 1943, a
major element in the total defense pos-
ture of the United States.
All is not paperwork and decision-Making: an occasional hop in AMERICA aircraft or a light-hearted farewell dinner break the routine

Underway Replenishment means
Replenishment at sea for fuels and supplies is more
than a simple maneuver performed at the spur of the
moment every seven to ten days. The planning and
execution of an "unrep" goes on days, weeks and
even months before the actual event.
Long before AMERICA comes alongside a supply
ship, messages must be sent requesting different types
of fuels or specific supplies, including the number of
heads of lettuce desired, how many pounds of flour
are needed and how many gallons of IP-5 or Avgas
are needed. Once the availability of these items is
assured, actual preparation begins with most
departments aboard AMERICA becoming involved.
What course will the two ships steer? The
Navigation Department takes care of this detail. First,
the course must be smooth and as free of turbulence
as possible. The currents, sea state and the existing
wind must all be taken into account. Now, what if the
ships needs to launch jets or recover helicopters
during the replenishment? That too, must be
considered and the course must provide sufficient
wind over the deck for flight operations. Lastly, is
there enough room for the exercise? Traveling three
hours or more at twelve knots means that at least '
thirty-six miles of the Mediterranean must be free of
islands and major shipping lanes.
The Deck Department has a very major role in any
underway replenishment. What kind rig will the ship
use? A Burton rig? Double Housefall? Highline?
Probe? The proper rig for the proper job must be
determined and then assembled. Each rig has its own
characteristics and each is suited for a specific job.
After assembling the pulleys, blocks and lines or
cables, Deck's job is far from being over, as that
department must man the rigs, winches and serve as
Weapons Department puts in its two cents as the
ship comes alongside. A marksman fires a shotline
from AMERICA to the supply ship, establishing the
first physical connection between the two. This thin
line is pulled back abroad AMERICA, hand over hand,
after the delivery ship has attached to it a telephone
connection for intership communication. If bombs or
other ordinance is involved in the replenishment,
Weapons monitors their flow from ship to ship and
into AMERICA's magazines.
While the Communication Department is hoisting
appropriate signal flags and dayshapes, bridge watch
officers are insuring that AMERICA maintains the
proper distance from the delivery ship. Too far and the
lines and hoses are strained and could possibly break,
too close and a suction is created which could cause
the two ships to slam into each other.

The Medical Department insures that
There is a doctor in the house
Since the start of the cruise the Medical
Department has been charting a daily in-
jury graph to spot and record any notice-
able trends which may occur. The graph,
titled INIURY: BY SPACE OF OCCUR-
ENCE breaks down the number of injuries
tusually burns, contusions, lacerations,
eye foreign objects or fracturesj accord-
ing to the type of space it occurred, eg.
flight deck, hangar bay, berthing com-
partment, etc. lt also distinguishes be-
tween accidents occurring while on duty,
holiday routine or liberty status.
Not so surprisingly, the graph reveals
that the number of ship-board accidents
progresses upward the longer we are at
sea without a holiday routine. On May
22, a day before the ship held holiday
routine, 17 injuries were recorded, which
plummeted dramatically downward to
five the following day. The next holiday
routine closely paralleled this trend. Eight
injuries were registered on May 30, a
striking difference from the 20 recorded
the day before. Seventeen accidents
dipped to six during the holiday routine
on june 5.
But the number abruptly skyrocketed to
24, the highest so far of the cruise, the
following day. The Medical Department
insists that this is not so surprising, since
the men are physically, as well as men-
tally exhausted following a day of holiday
routine. Such a day is similiar to a typical
blue Monday, a day of adjusting back to
Resembling skyscrapers on a city
skyline, the number of injuries recorded
during liberty soars right off the chart.
During the two-day liberty period in
Rota, the number of injuries wasn't too
high, but five of the eight occurred during
liberty status, as compared to one in
berthing and two in the galley. Four of
the 13 injured on May 24 were members
of the advance beach guard during the
"rock concert" at Rhodes.
During the four-day Taranto in-port
period liberty-status accidents numbered
11, 13, 18 and 17 respectively. While in
Taranto the second time, seven men were
injured on june 6 and another seven on
june 10. In Naples nine wereinjured

wonder how they find the time to graph
the number of sick calls at all. An average
Of 100 patients visit sick call from 6 to
9:30 daily. One noticeable trend which
appears immediately to even the casual
eye is the large discrepancy between the
number of sick calls during an in-port
liberty period and at-sea routine. During
liberty the number plunges, resembling a
dagger pointed downward.
While in Rota on April 26 and 27, the
numbers recorded were 58 and 50 re-
spectively, almost half the number of the
previous day. In Rhodes we recorded 45,
which rose sharply upward to 120 the
day we pulled out. The number of
sickcall patients dipped from 100 to 60 in
the time span of two days while in
Taranto. Thelnumber fell to 35 while in
Naples on August 15, only to rise to 130

The Medical Department also boasts
the first and best Medical Response Team
in the 6th Fleet. Setting a precedent for
other carriers in the Navy, this team,
composed of three full-time corpsmen
while at sea, can respond to emergencies
anywhere on the ship within three-and-
a-half minutes, from the signal bridge on
the O10 level to the auxiliary rooms on
level 7. This not only allows for travel
time, but also includes time utilized for
setting up the equipment until they are
ready to treat their first patients.

Ever since there has been a
Navy, someone has had to ensure
that the crew gets ashore for rest
and relaxation. The titles for these
men may have changed, but lib-
erty is as old as the Navy itself.
Today, on AMERICA, the 153-
man Deck Department is assigned
to get the crew to the beach and

From the minute the ship gets
underway from a liberty port,
these men set to work preparing
the ship's ten boats for future liber-
ty. The Admiral's "barge", the
Captain's "gig", the two officers'
boats and the six utility boats for
the crew must all be seaworthy
upon arrival in port.
Constant maintainance aside,
actual preparations for liberty
begin three hours before dropping

or "foc's'le". The "foc's'le" is also
the home of the ship's two 30,000

Roughly three hours from the
onset of this operation, the anchor
has been set and the department
can turn its attention to getting
the liberty boats outfitted and
The ship's hangar bay is always
a bustling scene on the first day in
port. This is the time for inventory
and minor touch-ups of the ship's
boats, which must be equipped
with the right number of life jack-
ets, boat hooks and assorted
paraphernalia. At last, the chains
and chocks are taken off the dol-
lies and the launches are taxied to
the elevators by tractor. Prior to
liberty call, all boat crewman are
required to attend lectures, where
nautical charts are passed out and
the rules of boating safety are re-
The degree of hardship the
boatcrew undergoes depends on
many factors: the state of the seas,
the distance from anchorage to
fleet landing, and the previous up-
keep of the boats.
To ensure that all goes well, a
boat crew consists of three and
sometimes, four men: the cox
swain, an engineer, a bowhook
ities and unties the boatl and at
night, a boat officer.
The bowhook is a resident
knot-specialist and maintains
order in the boat, the engineer
calibrates the boat's instruments
and keeps the engines running
smoothly. It is the coxswain who

A boatmember must possess
good hands, keen eyesight, a
sturdy pair of legs and an even

pretty harsh criticism of his work
and takes responsibility for the
welfare of the entire crew.
Crowded conditions and hot tem-
pers he must learn to ignore.
Forty-minute rides in the black of
night are rare QBarcelona7 but they
do happen occasionally because
an aircraft carrier must anchor in
deep water. Boat cancellations
generally occur when it becomes
dangerous to board or leave the
ship and a sea height of five or six
feet plays havoc on the ship's ac-
comodation ladders. More than
once on this cruise, a coxswain
has received a standing ovation
from his crew for executing a fast,
tricky hookup. A ship's crew is
tolerant of many situations, but
nothing is so sacred to a sailor as

AllvlD: Versatile, complex, precise
Day to day adjustments to elec-
tronic components and engines
are normally made within the in-
dividual squadron, but it is nor-
mally beyond the capabilities of a
squadron to make major repairs to
its equipment, due to the daily
vvork needed to maintain constant
readiness for flight operations. For
this reason, the Aircraft Inter-
mediate Maintenance Department
QAIMDJ has been established on
board aircraft carriers and naval
air stations to perform specialized
testing and maintenance on virtu-
ally all equipment used within the
Under the leadership of Com-
mander jack Burrows, AMERlCA's
AIMD services everything from the
giant, rolling flight deck crane to
micro-miniature electronics com-
ponents. Hundreds of work orders
are received daily throughout the
thirty vvork centers of the depart-
ment. The department consists of
five officers and 430 enlisted men,
both ship's company and TAD
personnel from squadrons. Re-
quirements and specifications are
located in the eight thousand
technical publications held in the
departmental library. And the nec-
essary repairs are carried out by
highly-trained technicians. Lack of
equipment to make the repairs is
rarely a problem with over ten
thousand items in stock. Anything
from aircraft tires, bomb racks,
tractors, or a perfectly running air-
craft engine to a tiny allen wrench
or transistor may be found within
Having the Navy's newest, most
sophisticated aircraft on board has
created a need for extremely com-
plex and precise electronics test
equipment. AlMD's Versatile Avi-
onics Shop Testing CVASTJ area
has admirably filled this need. Ap-
proximately twelve million dollars
worth of equipment may be
utilized in making electronics tests
Precise engine repair is a major
function of the AIMD jet Shop.
Under the supervision of ADH
D.E. Morrison, the forty men of
this work center have repaired
more than one hundred and
twenty engines, fifty of which have
been calibrated on the test cell, a
system enabling the engine to be
tested as if it was actually
mounted onlan aircraft. All en-
gines must be tested after sched-
uled periods of usage, however,
occasionally an engine is brought
in for repair because of foreign ob-
ject damage CFODJ. A small piece
of wire, a nut or bolt, can destroy
many internal components of an
engine. Petty Officer Morrison and
his team are familiar with, and can
repair, any of the hundreds of
parts making up the engine.
All squadrons of the Air Wing
have agreed that not enough can
be said about AIMD. As one
spokesman stated, "We have the
most complicated, sophisticated
and best AIMD in the Navy to-

That's the home of the Air Boss, Com-
mander I.C. Gehrig, his assistant, Com-
mander I.S. Paul and the tower crew,
who vary in number according to the
time of day this operation takes place.
The Air Boss is the man responsible for
the safe movement of aircraft on the flight
deck and the corollary upkeep of the vaSf
catapult and arresting gear system found
aboard a carrier.
The Navy calculates that a safe stan-
dard of operation is a maximum of one
accident every 10,000 flight hours. The
Air Department has successfully guided
the ship's aircraft through more than
20,000 safe hours.
During the day, the Air Boss is respon-
sible for the airspace in a five-mile radius
around the ship and Pri Fly is a beehive
of activity. Officers from each squadron
stand by, manuals in hand, to give land-
ing instructions to a pilot having trouble
landing. Single-engine landings constitute
trouble, as do hydraulic failures aloft.
What constitutes an accident? lf any part
of an airplane breaks, it is considered a
major accident. In the event of a crash,
the Air Boss and his crew must still keep
the landing area free for other airborne
aircraft. The pilot may indicate, for
example, that his flaps are only one-third
of the way down, and the Air Boss must
consult the arresting gear bulletin where
he learns, the recovery headwind tin
knotsi that is required for the landing of
the specific craft involved.
Aboard AMERICA there are seven
major types of aircraftg each one has a
different weight and subsequently re-
quires a different amount of tension on
the arresting cable. Pri-Fly dictates the
exact length of cable in accordance with
the oncoming aircraft.
It takes 420 men and 14 officers, re-
presenting four divisions, to get the air-
wing off the deck, making it the second
largest department aboard AMERICA. The
moving, handling and spotting of aircraft
CV-II is assisted arresting gear and
catapult KV-21, elevator and hangar deck
crewmen CV-31 and the "grapes" of V-4
who refuel all aircraft. By day, these men
are distinguished by the colors of their
jerseys and at night, by the color of their
flashlights. From the primary tower, the
Air Boss and his men gather all of the in-
formation he needs from the galaxy of
different-colored "wands" below, making
it easy for him to pinpoint a movement
out of sequence. For example, blue
flashlights indicate maintenance, amber
signify directors and red or green are the
sign of a catapult officer, whose job it is
to call for full or reduced engine power.
At night, the main responsibility for
safe flight within that five-mile radius
wisely shifts to the radar people.
...sw ..-:-.iwzezr -:sa-:-:sz-:1:s:s::f:f gi:-,A I.
Whatever the mission, whatever the equipment, flight ops mean people.
Watching a launch and recovery at
night is an exciting, complex stage drama
for the onlooker, though it is hard,
dangerous work for the flight crew. Porta-
bletractors with- an air start unit, called
"huffers", give the jets their initial injec-
tion of air pressure. The Air Boss gives
plenty of advance notice prior to launch
time, to "get the directors thinking". A
recovery follows a launch, so that planes
are constantly airborne.
It is a thrilling sight to see a "Tomcat"
CE-147 taxi to its launch site and take a
kneeling position while the "redshirts"
tordnancemenl load her with missiles.
The telltale greens and reds of the
Catapult Qfficer follow, and then when
the pilot is ready, the planes running
lights add their glow to the spectacle. A
white light indicates the catapult is open
anci a tinai fed ii at means "stand by".
With an inctei' 1 burst of power the
plane is in thi' jets accelerate
from zero to 140 knots in two secondsl
All of this happens so fast and with such
intensity that it takes a trained eye to de-
tect each sequence in the unfolding ac-
Steam from the red-hot catapults blows
over the flight deck like sand in a
duststorm. Later, prior to recovery, as the
plane begins encircling the ship, you
can't be sure if the stars are beckoning
somewhere in the night, or planes are
waiting to come in.
Roughly 150,000 gallons of IP-5 jet
fuel are consumed daily aboard
AMERICA, which means 550,000 is spent
on fuel alone per dayf The cost of operat-
ing an A-7 for one hour of flight is esti-
mated at 213200, the bulk of which goes
towards fuel expenditures.
At night, flight operations are slower,
and the maximum launching rate is one
plane per minute. During daytime opera-

taneously every 45 seconds, but there is
really no set limit. As expected, night-
flying is more dangerous since it is done
strictly by instrumentation and one
helicopter and destroyer stand by for res-
cue, if needed. During the day, a variety
of landmarks are available to the pilot,

One half hour after sunset, the center-
light strobes are turned on to simulate an
airfield, making the runway look consid-
erably longer than it actually is. The pri-
mary landing instrument for night land-
ings is the "lens" or "meatball", a large
light panel that tells the pilot whether he
is high, low, or on target in relation to the
flight deck, as he approaches. The lens
merely gives the pilot a mirror of where
he is in relation to the flight deck and if
he is unable to correct his course, a series
of red lights will "wave him off' to try
again. ln addition, the Landing Signal Of-
ficer keeps constant communication with
the pilot by radio, and the squadron ob-
serves who stand by in Primary during
the day can now be found in the Carrier
Air Traffic Control Center, where radar
takes precedence. One-hundred-and-fifty
feet of landing area does not leave much
room for error, however, and there are
other variables, like wind speed to con-
sider. Contrary to a much-believed myth,
the carrier itself does not have to be mov-
ing for flying to take place. If the wind is
blowing, flight is always possible. The
S-3, for instance, requires only three
knots of wind to become airborne.
Flight operations at sea are rigorous
and on some cruises, flight will often con-
tinue during heavy seas or snowstorms.
The "12-on 12-off" schedule is generally
adhered to, but in some cases the flight
crew will go 24 hours straight, as they did
earlier this cruise while tracking enemy
submarine contacts. "The heart of the
mission" for AMERICA is the Air Depart-
ment, and the heart must never rest while
in international waters.

Aside from this technical skill, possibly
the most important job the quartermaster
performs is to keep the ship's logbooks

assists the officer of the deck in determin-

tant navigational landmarks.
Behind the Captain's chair, an opera-

got here to the AMERICA.
My fate is similar to that of anybody on

and arrival here was quite unlike that
which any homo sapien would experi-
ence. I was mailed here. Yes, good ol'
U.S. Mail, Uncle Sam brought me to my
I know that a lot of you guys wish that
you could have been mailed home right

It all started back home when Mommy

There were a lot of good packages to

are sometimes so one-sided like those
'Dear john' letters that they are fun to lis-

john, but I'm afraid we can never see
each other again."

of the planes from the USS AMERICA was
there at the air field when we arrived.
They had enough room for us and some
green mail bags. The green bags held all
the personal mail and letters. Rumor has
it that the delays in getting to the aircraft
carrier occur in waiting for a flight that
can handle us. Some time delays last sev-
eral days depending on where the ship is.
Ah ha, home at last. The flight by Miss

I was a visitor and for a visitor it's a
real thrill to even be on an aircraft carrier.

I met some really nice people when I
arrived. PC3 Rivera greeted me on the
flight deck then someone from the Bravo

other postal clerks.
The phone rang and PCI Hall
answered. He told the person,

You know, he's got a point there.

The Engineering Department is com-
prised of more than 600 men, whose
daily efforts contribute to every function
of the ship. Almost half of the six-hundred
men of the Engineering Department work
down in the "holes", as the machinery
spaces are nicknamed. There, in the heat
and noise, M and B Division operate,
maintain and repair the boilers, main en-
gines, generators, distilling plants, pumps,
valves and other equipment.
M Divison's main engines are efficient
high-speed steam turbines, which can
produce 70,000 horsepower in the ahead
direction and the resultant horsepower
can move the ship at speeds well above
M Division and E division operate the
ship's six turbo-generators, each capable
of producing 2,500 kilowatts of electrical
power or enough to light more than
25,000 average light bulbs.
In addition, B Division maintains the
steam systems associated with the
catapults, while A, E and R Divisions
handle responsibilities from stem to stern.
A Division is well known for its versa-
tility. The A-1 shop attends to the opera-
tion of all hydraulic machinery including
the anchor windlasses, aircraft elevators,
boat and aircraft crane and steering gear.
A-1 fixes the underway replenishment
winches, galley and scullery equipment,
laundry machines, ship's service high
pressure air compressors, all ship's ser-

oxygen and nitrogen are issued to many
different departments for a variety of uses.
Another shop whose activities are of
direct interest to the entire crew is A-7,
the boat shop, responsible for overhaul
and maintenance on the diesel engines of
the ship's boats. Boat engines are small
fry compared to the giant V-16's of the
emergency diesel generators.
Last, but not least of A division's re-
sponsibilities is the machine shop which

The Distribution Work Center operates
the power switchboards for each
generator, and maintains all electrical
gear such as switches, controller,
generators, motors, bus ties and circuit
breakers. They don't get much variety,
but are kept busy in air-plants, machinery
and pump rooms.
The Catapult and Elevator shop repairs
and maintains essentially the same kind
of equipment as Distribution, but all of
their gear is associated primarily with the
aircraft and weapons elevators. Their job
is to supply 450 volt power to hangar and
flight deck outlets for use in aircraft
maintenance and start-up.
The Power shop is responsible for the
electrical repair and maintenance of the
steering gear, anchor windlass, underway

E Division's smallest shop is one of the
most visible: the Movie Booth, responsi-

In the Engineering Department, R
stands for Repair Division. Aboard a ship
of steel, much repair means metal work,
the job of the shipfitter shop. They per-
form a wide variety of repair and fabrica-
tion tasks, such as machinery founda-
tions, chairs or light fixtures. If it can be
made by cutting, bending, welding, saw-
ing, grinding, drilling or shearing, the
shipfitters will do it.
Pipe welding is something of an art,
and the Pipe shop handles this detail
aboard AMERICA. Miles of piping and
plumbing require constant' maintenance
and no one enjoys the unpleasant chore
of unplugging plumbing.
The Carpenter shop doctors boat hulls
as required. When the boats are all in
working order, the "woodchucks" find
time to fashion plaques and picture
The CO2-Lightwater shop maintains

The ordinance story begins when an ammuni-
tion ship pulls alongside AMERICA. Two, four or
six 500-pound general purpose bombs can be
highlined across at one time or the bombs can be
brought aboard by helicopter.
Inside the hangar bay, where bombs will even-
tually transit to magazines for storage, Ordinance
personnel take control. In the magazine, bombs
could conceivably remain for six months with se-
eing action, or the bomb may be called for duty
the following day.
When it comes time to "break the bomb out,"
it is done by electric fork lift. A bomb is designed
to withstand high temperatures under crowded
conditions, as must their human custodians. Sev-
eral pallets can be hoisted onto the fork lift at one
time. At this point, they are transferred with ten-
der loving care to portable skids, two at a time.
A lot of muscle and a steady helmsman on the
skid now guide the projectiles into their desig-
nated elevator shafts, where they rist on "flat-
beds," awaiting the journey to the assembly
room. The elevator shafts in no way limit the
number of bombs that can be escorted to the most
critical phase of their odyssey, the assembly
From the elevator, the bombs are hoisted di-
rectly onto a table which can accomodate up to
six at one time. Ideally, one bomb can be assem-
ble every minute, a process which includes ad-
ding pairs of fins, a fuse and a booster. -
Then it's back to the elevator again, to proceed
to the "bomb staging" area on the flight deck
level where the bombs will await their launch.
With their change in altitude comes a change in
management. The men who handle them still
wear the familiar Red Shirts, but they are desig-
nated as part of the air wing.
, M -rs X l 1
Removed from racks, ordinance is prepared for assembly.
Almost completely assembled, bombs move on skids up elevators and ei-
ther to a specific plane or the "bomb farm" on the starboard side of the
.1-ff-r.-af -Hr ' l--N-l-!'-"'
Once on the flight deck, the bombs enter their final
phase before becoming airborne. Four five squadron
ordinancemen combine efforts to make them ready for
flight. The bombs must first be "humped up" or
loaded onto the aircraft manually and then fused, so
they are ready to be activated.
Below, the cycle continues, a never-ending process.
Strength, coordination, a cool head and knowing that
all hands are responsible for the success of each
launch. Seven or eight cycles of 120 individual bomb
units makes for a high-caliber day of launches at sea.

solution and actual firing from the Weapons

The Terrier Standard Missileis a one ton,
two-stage missile which leaves the rail in less
than a second after firing. It achieves speeds in
excess of the speed of sound in the first thirteen
feet of flight. The missile must exceed four tons of
thrust just to override the restraining latches on
the launcher. It flys a ballistic trajectory until the
booster burns out after about four seconds and
the missile begins the guided portion of the flight
to target intercept.
The long hours of the Surface Missile System

provide America with another "All Weather

Humor sparks safet Program on
Laughter is the best medicineg espe-
cially if it's you laughing, and the other
guy nursing his injury . . . and his
wounded ego. This "other guy" approach
is exactly what Commander S.P. Dunlap
capitalizes on when composing the daily
Safety Shirt Specials.
These popular one-page publications
print recent Medical Department admis-
sion reports which include the patient's
statement fthe patient may be doctored,
but never his statementl, rank, depart-
ment, and type of injury. This information
is followed by a caustic comment from
the unsympathetic, piercing pen of
Commander Dunlap or another Safety
Team member concerning the patient's
intelligence quotient, and sometimes a
suggestion on how he could have easily
avoided his plight by using a little com-
mon sense. A couple of examples are:
PROBLEM: Patient states, "I was
leaving the Ship's Store when
someone kicked me in the
head." Ilaceration to the headl
COMMENT: Next time pay your
PROBLEM: Patient states, "I was
running and fell off my platform
shoes." tsevere sprain to anklel
COMMENT: Darling, while you
may look simply ravishing in
high heels, I think that a plain,
open-toed sandal is the "real
These pithy but poignant comments are
usually flanked by the equally penetrating
cartoons sketched by SN William Seibert,
depicting in exaggerated terms the pa-
tient's sad predicament. A sailor nearly
amputating his finger while opening a
can of pineapples may find himself cari-
catured in the following day's Special
clothed in Hawaiian attire while holding
an over-size pineapple from his nearly
severed finger. Another sailor may be
portrayed sheepishly holding a swollen
thumb after "tying one on" in a liberty
port. One patient stated, "I was connect-
ing a thermal bulb when I brushed a
piece of flux into my eye." Seibert drew
an accompanying picture of a sailor with
bandaged eyes marked "HIS" and
"HERS" to supplement the written re-
mark that the same patient did the same
thing to his other eye a few hours later,
"perhaps wanting a matched pair."
Commander Dunlap credits the art as
the vital "attention grabber" for the Spe-
cial. Together, administered in just the
right dosage, they normally force most
patients to hide their faces in shame
under the hospital sheets. So much so
that, when a Commander tno one is
sparedl spilled scalding soup on his hand,
resulting in first degree burns, he hesi-
tated going to Medical because he feared
it would be publicized in the Safety Shirt
Special. It was, with the equally scalding
comment: "Great Goldilocks! That's not
such a swell way to see if the soup is
warm. Next time try some of whatever
Baby Bear is having."
The purpose of the Special of course, is
not to intimidate its readers, nor to keep
them from seeking medical help. The
primary purpose of the Safety Shirt Spe-
cial is to prevent accidents by helping the
reader become more aware of potential
hazards. To accomplish this goal, read-
ers' suggestions on safety improvements
are also printed, as well as safety tips and
accident statistics and trends. "Attaboys"
are also given to shipmates who have
demonstrated safety awareness by thwart-
ing a potential accident situation.
In explaining the Special's format,
Commander Dunlap believes that using a
serious "thou shalt not" approach tends
to be a "total turn-off" to the reader.
"The idea is to make the reader laugh at
the other guy's dumb mistakes, while
vowing to himself that he'll never be
caught in such an embarrassing situa-
tion," he stresses. "This way, he suddenly
becomes safety-conscious, all the while
believing that he alone is responsible for
this change in attitude."
But Commander Dunlap's belief unfor-
tunately has to compete with two other
very popular philosophies prevalent in
American society. One is the belief that if
anything bad happens, it will happen to
the "other guy". And the other is the
American trait of risk-taking. "This
machismo thing is very evident in our
culture, and is directly responsible for a
lot of our accidents," he laments.
But the two main reasons for most ac-
cidents on the AMERICA are inattention
and lack of supervision, according to
Dunlap. And young, inexperienced non-
rated personnel are most vulnerable to
such accidents. The Safety Special is pro-
duced primarily with this audience in
mind. "Very seldom do you see a petty
officer injured because of an accident,"
Dunlap states. "The reason for this is that
your average petty officer is usually older,
more mature and experienced, and
doesn't do as much manual labor as your
non-rate," he explains.
The Ships Safety Team itself is com-
posed of experienced senior petty officers
who know their rate, as well as their ship.
"We have five experienced petty officers
who have the necessary background, and
most important, know their rates," he
The five meng two ABH's, one AO, one
EM, and one BM are not merely armchair
philosophers and wits shut in their ivory
tower. On the contrary, they are very
"visible and responsive" onboard the
AMERICA, two key traits for any Safety
Team member. They are most visible on
the flight deck since that is where the
greatest potential for a major mishap
exists. While three men work full time
there observing flight deck operations,
the others are busy checking refueling
and replenishment stations, as well as
galleys, main and auxiliary machinery
rooms, all sponson areas and OBA lock-
ers. They also inspect all ship's boats
immediately prior to hitting port. While
in port they troubleshoot all fire stations
and storerooms for hazardous material.
All bunk lighting is given a "thorough
semi-annual inspection" and OBA lock-
ers, as well as all ladders and hatchways
are checked monthly.
"But even though troubleshooting the
machinery is an important aspect of our
daily routine, we're people, not
machinery-orientated," Dunlap stresses.
"We're proud of our safety record since
AMERICA has not had any recent major
mishaps, but we can never really be sure
if we're effective or not. There's really no
objective way to view or grade our suc-
cess," he says, shaking his head. "But we
can sure tell if we're not," he sighs.

The Ships Safety Team must be doing
something right. The Chief of Naval Op-
erations recently announced that the USS
AMERICA has been selected the winner
of the Admiral Flatley Memorial Safety
Award for fiscal year 1976. The annual
award, sponsored by Rockwell Interna-
tional, Columbus Aircraft Division, is
separated into three categories with the
AMERICA taking Type I tfor carriers with
large decksi. The safety award is
presented for a superior performance in
aviation safety, and the Type I category is
"especially prestigious" according to
Dunlap since more ships fall into this
category. . '
Commander M.R. Edwards, who re-
lieved Commander Dunlap as Ships
Safety Officer in September, hopes to
continue AMERICA's safety trends, with a
new emphasis on industrial safety while
in the yards. Commander Edwards be-
lieves that prevention is the real goal of a
strong safety program. "Reporting, inves-
tigation follow-ups, etc. are all part of the
Safety Team's daily routine," Edward
says. "But trend evaluation, personnel
habit correction and especially accident
prevention are the real life and limb sav-
ers," he' stresses. Commander Edwards
adds that we can count on continued
publication of the Safety Shirt Special.

shoreline with outlines of the famous windmills and
wall surrounding the ancient city, remains the only
memory of the island.
Founded in 407 B.C., conquered and reconquered
time and again throughout history, the resort city
waited for yet another invasion: from friendly invad-
ers on friendly premises - liberty.
AMERlCA's liberty launches eagerly headed to-
wards shore, receiving an unexpected shower of gifts
upon arrival. Without hesitation, the launches re-
turned to the ship, displaying the bounty of Greek
hospitality. A student demonstration and an ample
supply of rocks, erased our hopes of visiting this en-
chanting land. The rest is history. . .

a tour to Alberobello . . .
In the early hours of june third and
fourth, three liberty boats shuttled ashore
groups of AMERICAmen to buses bound for
the popular Grottoes of Castellana and the
neighboring city of Alberobello.
Alberobello is one of several regions
known for its "trulli," a Commonly-seen
stone dwelling with a conical roof.

AMERICA "dropped the hook" in the harbor out-
side Bari on 26 june. The four days spent there were
enjoyable and pleasant. A city of 350,000, Bari is
just north of where the boot joins the heel on the
Adriatic Sea. Rich in history, Bari is also a city with
an eye on the future.
Those who walked along the Lungomare, or
Bari's "Great White Way," probably saw the statue
of Saint Nicholas, the city's patron saint, which
stands in tribute to the days of rough seas and

"See Naples and die", or so the saying goes. Roughly
translated, this expression testifies to the eternal beauty and
proud history of Naples. To understand this statement, it is
necessary to realize that until the reorganization of Italy in
1860, Italy was made up of a number of independent states.
Southern Italy and Sicily were linked together under one
rule, with Naples as its capital.
In the centuries before Christ, the seafaring Greeks built a
city where Naples now stands, but an earthquake shook the
bay and the city was partially submerged. Subsequently, the
Romans moved in and reconstructed the city, giving it the
name of Neapolis, or "new city."
After the fall of Rome, the name was shortened to Napoli,
and a succession of other peoples tried their hand at ruling
the provinces of Southern Italy.
In 1860, it was Garibaldi who eventually sealed the unity
of Naples, with the aid of a volunteer army.
Today, Naples is an important seaport, as always, and is
bolstered considerably by the tourist trade.
The city has been blessed, as well as cursed, by its loca-
tion. Naples has the distinction of occupying the most mag-
nificent site in all of Italy. Nearby are Pompeii, Her-
culaneau, Mount Vesuvius, Sorcento, Amalfi, Salerno,
Capri, Ischia, and Rome.
Naples boasts beautiful parks, ancient catacombs, various
museums, numerous churches and cathedrals, and seven
For most of us,,Naples meant Peroni beer, sidewalk ven-
dors, musty basement bars, and a visit or two to the USO.
For the first seven days of our stay there, buses ran hourly to
two Naval Base exchanges, enabling us to get that long-
awaited stereo equipment.
When high seas twice put a temporary halt to boating, the
Naval BEQ provided us with overnight shelter.
A large percentage of AMERICA men made pilgrimages to
Rome, Capri, Ischia, and nearby Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius.
Those lucky enough to get 5-day leaves granted, migrated
north to Munich. Proof that Naples was good. to us is that
tour ticket sales while we were in Naples easily outsold
ticket sales in all our previous port visits combined.
If it was history we longed to relive, we made the mecca
to Pompeii-Vesuvius or repaired to Rome. If sun and fun
was all we sought, with a possibility of that chance interna-
tional encounter, the islands of Capri and Ischia met our
Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius provided

of a nti ol u it
Besides a quick trip into the past, the bus ride
to Vesuvius and Pompeii meant a chance to see
just how out of shape we really were.
The very rich soil at the base of Mt. Vesuvius,
coupled with a long growing season, has resulted
in a cornucopia of such crops as almond
ries, and apples.
At the foot of Vesuvius, there also lay a cameo
school, where experts worked on shells and ivory
imported from Africa. There were rings, earrings
and broaches, and sets of cameo jewelry, making
most men wish they had brought more money
The road to Vesuvius was graced by umbrella
pines and lava heaps, making the destruction of
Pompeii seem more real as we rode in the
shadow of the sleeping volcano.

Ascending Mt. Vesuvius, Capri and the
mainland of Sorrento became visible on
the righthand side of the tortuous moun-
tain road. In the wake of nine eruptions
over a span of 2,000 years, it is hard to
understand why the natives challenge the
lava-monster by living on its slopes.
Perhaps it was the knowledge that a
modern observatory is constantly moni-
toring volcanic activity further up the
slopes and can effectively warn 95W of
the population in the event of an actual

Bay, but left us breathless as well.
Having witnessed the agent of destruc-
tion, we were eager to see the ruins of
Pompeii. En route, we learned that Pom-
peii was once a prosperous town with a
large population before its demise in 79
A.D. According to legend, the entire
population had been warned of the forth-
coming disaster, but only the poor sur-
vived, because the aristocracy was loathe
to leave their rich city behind.
Within the labyrinth of Pompeii's ash-
covered streets and houses, many clues
to ancient living were discovered by
AMERlCAmen. Everything from lupiter's
t ""' 'liliilgiillllllllilliilim
Temple to public drinking fountains are
still intact, although all the original
statues are preserved for history in the
Museum of Naples.
Most memorable was the "Veal
House", formerly owned by two wealthy
bachelors, whose living quarters were
decorated with pornographic art.
After a full day of mental and physical
exercise, AMERlCAmen were satisfied to
return to the ship's in-port routine and
rest for more liberty.

THE ETER AL CITY
The derivation of the name
"Rome" is debatable. Some
scholars insist the origin lies with
the two babes, Romulus and Re-
mus, and the life-saving She-Wolf.
Others believe the name comes
from the River Tiber, known in
earlier times as Rumon. Still, many
place their faith in Ruma, 'or
breast, the name given to the
Palatine Hill for its mammary-like
St. Peters Basillica
While this question remains un-
solved, the founding date of the
Eternal City is recorded as 21 April
During this prehistoric period, a
Latin population established itself
among the hills surrounding the
Tiber Valley. Adopting the lifestyle
of the natives, the Etruscans, these
Latins flourished to the point of ul-

The Sistine Chapel
The grandeur of both the past and the present was evident throughout Rome. The vaulted domes of Rome's 140 churches and the ruins of the Forum spoke
of past elegance and faith. The traditional garb of the Swiss Guards are still worn by those protecting the Pope.

Capri and Ischia
Ital off the beaten path
Any day, at almost anytime, there was a ferry or hydrofoil leaving Naples
for the islands of Capri and Ischia.
In Ischia, you were totally on your own, but once you had arrived in Capri,
you were greeted by an expert van-driver, who, through arrangements already
made by the USO, acted as your tour liason. With five or six others in a van,
you made the treacherous climb to a hilltop hotel, which served as both your
points of origin and return.
From here, a designated bus escorted you to lunch by a swimming pool,
where the food was plentiful and the bikinis were skimpy. Directly below, lay
the world-renowned Blue Grottoes, where you could cash in a coupon in
return for a rowboat ride through the caverns. Burly natives in t-shirts were
constantly piloting boats through the entrance, which could be entered only at
low tide. Inside, the waters were sky blue, and a silvery light created the
illusion that you could see clear to the bottom, 60 meters below, If your
oarsman broke into a chorus of "Santa Lucia" during the ride, you were ex-
pected to give him a tip.
Refreshed by your Cave-tour, it was time to mount the stairs and await the
bus to Mt. Solaro.
Following a bone-chilling ride on a narrow road that put you cl0S6 to the
edge more than once, the bus stopped at a small piazza, made festive with
bright floral centerpieces and rows of small cafes and giftshops.
Another coupon bought you a ride you would not soon forget, a 20-minute
trip to the top of Mt, Solaro in a chairlift, so far removed from the bustle of
tourism below, that it instantly altered your state of mind, One glided bY elss-
tric cable, noiselessly over forest glade and gorge, at times so close to natlve
houses below that one could actually hear conversations.
When you reached the top, you were treated to a sweeping view of the
entire island. Boats below seemed no larger than large aquatic beetles on the
surface of a pond.
From here, it was easy to see why people from all nations flock annually to
this island to mend their health and spirits, by taking advantage of the Pure
air, tranquil pace, and healthful sea breezes the island affords.

. . . an afternoon at the bullring
"Kill is the tragic epilogue that ends the fight."
-- james Michener
To a Spaniard bullfighting is an art. A portrayal of
man versus beast, the superior mind outwitting
brute strength. Reverence and nationalism surround
the sport. Part of the Spanish culture, its lure baffles
many. To insult the bullfight is to insult Spain her-
Palma boasts the third largest bullring in Spain -
Plaza de Torros de Palma. And here several
hundred AMERICAmen viewed this spectacle for
the first time . . ,
Each Sunday afternoon avid fans and curious
tourists crowd the arena. The atmosphere, festive.
First the procession: matadors, banderilleros,
picadors, and the two horses who, inevitably, cart
away the defeated animals.
A horn is blown and a matador reenters the arena
in regal costume. Moments later the bull charges in,
snorting and furious at the world. Twisting and turn-
ing, the matador evades his challenger's advances
and piercing horns. Another trumpet sounds and the
matador is replaced by horseback riding picadors.
Wielding long poles with sharpened steel tips, they
repeatedly stab the bull's strong back, tearing open
the thick hide in an effort to wear him down for the
QA figmal, the picadors leave, job completed.
Bleeding tc 'w xxeakenecl and furious, the bull
Enter the banderilleros. With gaily colored,
razor-sharp barbed sticks tbanderillasl these men
test their courage and skill by attempting to jab one
pair in the bull's shoulders - a dangerous job re-
quiring precise timing and unfaltering agility. Suc-
cessful, they leave the ring. Tired, wounded and dec-
orated the animal remains.
The final horn sounds as the matador returns, red
cape and sword in hand. An enraged bull charges
an instinctual enemy, the red cape, while the brave
matador plans his tactics: facing the bull head-on
he must plant the sword firmly between the beast's
shoulder blades for a clean kill -failure could re-
sult in being gored or crushed.
Eye to eye with his opponent, he glides his gleam-
ing sword smoothly between the bull's shoulders,
piercing the massive heart along the way. Exhausted
and mortally wounded, the animal staggers and,
legs buckling, collapses. Victory and defeat.
The gallant matador receives a shower of flowers,
seat cushions, a fluttering of white handkerchiefs,
either the tail, one or both ears from the slaughtered
creature and unmatched admiration for his bravery
While parading the bloodied arena, displaying his
severed trophies, the two horses enter and drag
away the huge carcass.
Two more matadors and five bulls await their
challenge during the afternoons time For many, a
Sunday afternoon passes to quickly, for others , , ,

Malaga-born artist Pablo Picasso liked
Barcelona so well that he left major
works for the establishment ofa museum
in his favorite Spanish city. The museum
is second-rate in that it bears his name
but few of his prints, because Picasso's
artistic impact on Spain was muffled dur-
ing most of Franco's reign and like most
Spanish artists, has been felt more
Walking down one of the most famous
of European avenues on a sunny day, it is
easy to see why. The Ramblas, as it is
called, is a tree-lined boulevard alive

the transportation hub of the city. Buses,
taxis, and subways combine to make a rel-
atively inexpensive and efficient mass

sample Spanish architecture and two
good spots to do this are the Gothic

features at least seventy shops selling ev-

Not far from the Gothic Quarter, stands
a six-century-old church, a blend of
medieval and Renaissance architectural
design. On Sundays, the elaborate sar-
dana, a Spanish folk dance, takes place in

Good entertainment can be found
throughout the city, especially on Aribau
and Tuset streets, vvhere modern and
even futuristic bars feature live folk-
singing by such groups as "Uruguay," a
brother and sister team that play and sing

MALAGA TORREMOLINQS: A SPANISH
"ls it a good spot - Torremolinos?" joe asked.
"See for yourself!" the excited German said. End-
less beach. Mountains cut off from the cold winds.
lt's not a city. lt's not a village. lt's nothing seen on
earth before. l'll tell you what it is - a refuge from
the world's insanity, except that it's totally in-
sane." james Michener - "The Drifters"
Fourteen kilometers K8 milesj northeast of Malaga,
Spain, a conservative Spanish port of 300,000 there
lies a haven for the Briton and the Dane, and for
two days at least, the omnipresent sailor.
Turning onto the heavily-trafficked Calle tstreetj
de San Miguel, one sees backpacked youths, braless
imports from Scandinavia, almond-eyed contessas
from the Spanish heartland and American shoppers,
virtually all of Europe is drawn to this European
playground made famous by james Michener's epic,
A barrage of different-colored signs assault the
eye, making it necessary to pick carefully through
the maze of ships, bars and eateries.
At Quintapenas, pick through a plateful of
shellbound shrimp for less than a dollar.
At the Mayfair, a British pub of sorts, the
distinguished-looking couple next to you you will
probably sport an Oxonian accent and there will
invariably be some Danish secretaries arriving on
their way to a flamenco show.
Betty's Bar, owned by a former bullfighter, is a
rollicking good time, likely to have spontaneous en-
tertainment with a Spanish flavor.
Round the corner, and eat fried meatballs and red
cabbage at the swanky Viking restaurant.
Follow the Calle San Miguel down to the sea and
rent a beach chair where you can watch brave
waterskiers skim 200 feet above the water in
Or choose your favorite sidewalk cafe and watch
the nightlife stroll by. Savor the human circus that
unfolds: natives selling roses to homesick sailors,
bands of college students playing songs for a hand-
ful of pesetas and roving photographers charging
200 pesetas tabout S39 for the rare treat of having
your picture taken with a lion cub or baby chim-
I I I
"ia-gEf.:mI-- , 'ff i' es.
By American standards, Torremolinos is now
rather tame, but it is a far cry from being a typical
Spanish scene. lt is just as Michener described it, a
place for the young and restless.

The Last Leg
It's almost over. October 14th:
Rota, Spain. And with it most of the
major highlights of a cruise: the
shower lines. The chow lines. The
taxis. The liberty lines. tThe only
things we didn't stand in line for
was work.J The field days. Now the
changing of the guard. Welcome to
the Mediterranean, "Rosy!"
There were many good things
"over there." Forgotten just then in
the anticipation of home were the
tasty, exotic foods, new brands of
beer, new friends to help drink it,
historic sites, and fresh scenery.
lt was business as usual when the
ship prepared to pull into homeport.
The 80-plus aircraft flew to their
home fields, 1200 tons of ordinance

"Amateur Night" in Naples Q
ow, muster Shore Patrol teams ,
The night begins early and runs late for
the Shore Patrol when AMERICA anchors
overseas. This story is about one night in
Naples with a Shore Patrol team.
The duty section Cthere are three sec-
tionsl assembles on the hangar bay at
1700 at which time they muster, sign
their orders and have the forms endorsed
by the Officer of the Deck.
A utility boat is usually reserved to
transport the shore patrol ashore and
since there are between 70 and 80, the
boat is nearly full. The ride ashore is calm

as the men savor the last time they will
be sitting for the next eight to 12 hours.
Arriving on the "beach," the teams
equip with both brassards with the famil-
iar "SP" and the long black nightsticks on
white web belts. Now, armed to the
teeth, comes the walk through the streets
of Naples to Shore Patrol Headquarters.
In Naples, at least, the Navy maintains
a permanent Shore Patrol. Because of the
frequency of ships anchoring in the har-
bor and the U.S. facilities nearby, a full
time, highly trained force can be justified.
The ships in port supplement this force.
The Shore Patrol Headquarters in
Naples is located about six blocks from
fleet landing in what appears to be the
basement of an old brownstone office
building. The men at the headquarters are
hard looking men, veterans of long nights
tolerating rowdy liberty parties.
The teams are briefed all at once by a
Shore Patrolman, a second-class Boats-
wains Mate who sounds as if he haS

Pinson drew the duty together on this par-

supervisor for a "strip" of bars and night-

two-man teams. The job was more than
administrative as the pair had to rove,
checking on the activity at the Bluebird

that this was one of the roughest beats
but weren't apprehensive as they wan-
dered from bar to bar.
Chief Cleghorn let each of his teams
have a break at the USO before it closed
at 2200. There was a clean - and cheer-
ful - atmosphere at the USO and no en-
terprising young ladies asking to share a
drink. A ham sandwich and coke later,
the team is back on the streets. The
clouds have gathered since entering the
USO and rain looks certain.
Drops are falling as they reach the

furthest extent of their beat: the Club El
Morocco. For a while, the two stand be-
neath the eave with another team staying
dry. The teams swap their night's experi-
ences with one another. "We've been on
Broadway and the place is like a
church," says the first-class on the new
team. "That's unusual for amateur night!"
Eventually the rain and wind became too
much for standing outside and they duck
into the Club.
The air hung heavy with smoke and
loud music assaulted the ears. Even com-
ing in from the evening dusk, it took the
eyes some time to adjust to the darkness.

Well-endowed waitresses with heavy

The hubbub at El Morocco is noisy but
there appears to be no problems.
"Go into a place like that," mentions
Chief Cleghorn, "and you'll" start more
trouble than you'll stop." Even in a city
the size of Naples, some Italians seem
familiar to those who had been there be-
fore. Pointing to one of the women talk-

AMERICA celebrated the Fourth of
july while at anchor in the Central
Mediterranean port of Taranto, Italy.
Special activities were scheduled
throughout the day and began when
the ship held colors and rigged full
dress ship at 0800. After both American
and Italian guests arrived, ecumenical
patriotic services on the ship's flight
deck were held. Both chaplains
presented portions of the senfice along
with parts by Captain MCCCRMICK
and the airwing commander. More
than 20 crewmembers presented parts
in the services. More than 200 Italian
guests shared the service with the crew.
Following the morning services, Cap-
tain MCCORMICK officially opened the
afternoon's activities by cutting a giant
cake ta pastry representation of the De-
claration of lndependence.I
An all-hands picnic began at II00 in
the hangar bay featuring traditional
hotdogs, baked beans and ice cream.
During the party, music was provided
by groups aboard s ip, playing a variety
of folk, rock and soul music.
At the same time the picnic was
going on, a games competition was tak-
ing place on the flight deck. Following
the format of the TV-show 'fAlmost
Anything Goes," teams from squadrons
and departments battled each other in
zany competitions like blindfolded obs-

This impression reflects the apparent
buildup of Soviet surface and subsur-

had been predicted and observed re-
cently. ln many categories, in fact,
Soviet vessels outnumber their Ameri-
can counterparts in what was formerly
referred to as an "American Pond."
The new construction Russian sur-
face ships reflect Soviet attitudes in
both shipbuilding and military strategy.
Large and heavily-armed, the ships

The larger destroyers, cruisers and
brand-new helicopter and aircraft car-

The Miss America
15 August 1976
Miss America, meet USS AMERICA. No
further introduction was needed as the two
ladies immediately took a liking to
' each other.
Miss America visited the AMERICA while the
carrier was anchored in Naples, and for most
of the crew the curvacious figures of Ms.
Tawny Godin and her equally lovely and
talented entourage symbolized the first
glimpse of America's shores in four months.
Captain 1.C. Breast, Executive Officer, and
the ladies' seven enlisted escorts welcomed
Ms. Godin and her party aboard: Miss
Connecticut tMs. Mary Cadorettel, Miss
Georgia tMs. Seva Daylg Miss Kentucky tMs.
Marsha Griffithlj Miss Utah tMs. Barbara
Hanksi and Manager tMs. Helen E. Signayl.
They then visited with Captain Daniel G.
McCormick in his inport cabin and were
given a tour of the ship.

Flournoy from VA-15 perished along with his A-7
aircraft after colliding with an A-6 from VA-176.
AMERlCAmen joined in memorial services and

A SPECIAL FLAG EOR
A SPECIAL YEAR
While 1976 marked the two hundredth an-
niversary ofthe United States, it marked the 20Ist
anniversary of the Navy.
One of the many ways this milestone was
marked throughout the service was the temporary
replacement of the traditional Union lack Cblue
field, white stars? with the Rattlesnake lack of rev-
olutionary origins. Every time AMERICA an-
chored, this flag was flown briskly and with pride.

As the nation of Lebanon became torn by civil
war and both internal and external strife, the citi-
zens of foreign countries began to be increasingly
When nations began to close embassies,
foreign nations were warned that their departure
Great Britian and the United States initially or-
ganized an overland evacuation to take their citi-
zens to Damascus. When the Palestianian Libera-
tion Army could no longer promise protection
along the overland route, the United States opted
for a sea evacuation.
USS SPEIGEL GROVE served as the ship which
ferried evacuees from Beirut to Athens during the
first evacuation USS CORONADO served during
the final evacuation. AMERICA remained "on
watch" during the entire evolution, her planes
readied for whatever decision was made.
One of the side-effects of AMERICA's partici-
pation in the Lebanon crisis was a certain un-
predictability in scheduling from port to port.
This in turn, created uncertainty when the time
came for the Dependent's charter flight sched-
uled to depart Naples on 3 August. Would the
ship be able to make Naples on time or not? As
deadlines grew tighter and tighter with little re-
lief in sight, a novel solution was discovered in
the form of the USS PUGET SOUND.
This destroyer tender met AMERICA at an an-
chorage near Crete where the personnel sched-
uled for the stateside-bound flight transferred by
utility boats aboard the PUGET SOUND and
began their journey towards Naples.
Making the deadline by hours, the planeload
of happy - and relieved - AMERICAmen de-
parted Naples and headed west.

AMERlCAmen were treated to three displays of
talent during their 1976 odyssey, two which fea-
tured the carriers' own resources and one in
Palma, which hosted local TV and radio per-
sonalities of Mallorca.
On 10 May, Chaplain Cook teamed up with
Dr. Dunn tof Dentall and Dr. Mineham tof Medi-
call to form a "Dixon Brothers"-style trio, Fran-
cois jackson mystified the audience with a poetry
and song selection and a host of guitarists, aspir-
ing comics and an amateur magic skit all shared
the spotlight to boost the spirits of a sea-weary
But it was in Palma de Mallorca where we wit-
nessed the imported talent of the lovely blonde
TV starlet, Bettina, and a cast of magicians, com-
edians and flamenco dancers, which left us beg-
ging for more.
AMERlCA's Aqua Men found it's beginnings as a club
through the efforts of Mr. lohn Lovisolo, Grumann Tech
Rep during the first two weeks of our Med Cruise. The
Club quickly grew in size to a membership of 37 people,
most of whom were fully equipped and certified divers.
AMERlCA's Aqua Men enjoyed many dives beneath the
beautiful clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea. CDR.
Dunn, AMERlCA's Senior Dental Gfficer captured an un-
usual underwater treasurep a very old Green amphora urn

Attack Squadron 15, one of the oldest attack
squadrons in the U.S. Navy, celebrated their 34th
anniversary on 10 january 1976
Since its inception barely a month after the de
bacle at Pearl Harbor in 1941, Attack Squadron
15 has flown six types of aircraft, operated from
the decks of over eighteen different aircraft car
riers, and made 21 major deployments to all parts
of the world. Few naval aviation units can match
the 34 years of service to the Navy and our coun
try in the proud "None Finer" tradition of the
Commissioned as Torpedo Squadron Four
10 january 1942, the squadron saw its first action
in November 1942 against the Germans in North
Africa. Flying SBD "Dauntless" dive bombers
VT-4 participated in Operation Torch, which in
cluded strikes against Nazi airdromes, capital
ships and submarines as well as covering the
landing forces. Almost a year later the squadron
was dive bombing enemy shipping hidden in
In late 1944 VT-4 was again engaged in combat
operations, this time in the Pacific theatre. As
signed to USS BUNKER HILL CCV-173, the squad
ron flew missions in support of our troops at Leyte
and Luzon. Early in 1945 Torpedo Squadron Four
struck lwo lima and Okinawa from the deck of
USS ESSEX iCV-9l.
At the close of World War ll VT-4 was transi
tioning to TBM "Avenger" aircraft and
homebased at Quonset Point, Rhode island. A
year later, in july 1946, the squadron moved to
San Diego. On 15 November 1946, VT-4 was re
designated Attack Squadron Twenty-four. In Au
gust 1948 the designation was again changed
from VA-24 to VA-15.
ln March 1949 VA-15 moved to NAS Cecil
Field, Florida and in August received eighteen
AD-4 attack type aircraft. From 1951 through
1965 the "Valions" flew their "Spads" from

"Necessity is the mother of invention" or so
the saying goes. When AMERlCA's aviation
gas system developed problems, outbound
CODs were unable to refuel. Five gallon
containers in hand, personnel from V-4
division refueled the aircraft by hand - a long
but necessary job.

Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron 137 was
commissioned 14 December 1973 and tasked
with providing the United States Fleet with state
of the art electronic warfare support for strike air-
craft, ships and ground forces. It was the first
squadron to deploy to the Western Pacific with
the new, expanded capability, EA-6B "Prowler"
Commander R.M. McDivitt, the squadron's first
commanding officer, saw the "Rooks" through
,initial build-ups and qualification aboard USS
ENTERPRISE and was relieved by Commander
CLK. Flyum, 23 November 1974 while the ship
was deployed to the Western Pacific and at an-
chor in the harbor of British Royal Crown Colony,
Hong Kong, China.
During the ENTERPRISE cruise, VAQ-137 was
twice recipient of the "Golden Tailhook" award
for carrier aviation excellence and is justifiably
proud of its non-stop support efforts during Oper-
ation Frequent Wind, the evacuation of Saigon,
Republic of South Vietnam.
Additionally, the squadron was able to contri-
bute its specialized knowledge to ENTERPRISE
and Carrier Air Wing Fourteen's formulation of
fleet air superiority tactics.
The squadron returned to its homeport, NAS,
Whidbey Island, Washington in May 1975 and
succeeded in winning the "Golden Prowler"
award during Prowler Stream, the yearly intra-
community professional competitive exercises.
Since then, VAQ-137 has contributed an "Elec-
tronic Countermeasures Environment" to such di-
verse interests as VX-5's chaff tests, operational
testing of the PECASUS weapons system,
NORAD, the Marine Corps' 3rd MAW, and Brave
Shield XIII, a joint services readiness test.
In November 1975, word was received of the
squadron's reassignment to Carrier Air Wing SIX
aboard USS AMERICA. In less than two weeks a
detachment was aboard AMERICA for aircrew
carrier qualification and integration into the new

On 19 December 1975, Commander G. Miller
assumed command of the "Rooks" and the
squadron's efforts were directed toward opera-
tional readiness examinations on board
AMERICA. The "Rooks" flew a variety of training
sorties with missions varying from SSSC to ESM,
ECM and FASX flights.
